Do the Peak District in style at this cosy cottage in the village of Alstonefield, with views across the fields and rewarding walks all around
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 3 nights high season
This charming cottage in the Peak District village of Alstonefield turns things upside-down to make the most of the area’s beautiful views. The two-bedroom retreat is well-placed for you to discover the best of Derbyshire, with Bakewell, Chatsworth House and a whole lot more within easy reach.
Backing on to beautiful countryside, Curlew Cottage has its two bedrooms downstairs accompanied by a bathroom with bath and overhead shower. The style is a careful balance of contemporary and rustic, with the cottage’s oak beams and sloping ceilings ensuring its original character has not been lost.
Stairs lead up to the living room, kitchen and dining area – it’s light, airy and kept warm with a wood-burning stove in the fireplace. If you fancy curling up on the sofa for the day, you have a TV and DVD to keep you entertained, and there’s free Wi-Fi to keep you connected.
A seating area outside lets you make the most of the location, which is close to one of the UK’s finest country pubs, The George. It’s just a short walk away, so don’t miss the ambience and great food which got The Sunday Times raving about it. There are many more recommended inns in the villages around the area – the perfect way to conclude a bracing walk in the Peak District.
Speaking of walks, the possibilities are near endless... You can head for Ilam Park, Dovedale or the White Peak, and now there’s the Monsal Trail too – a former railway line running from Buxton to Bakewell which is equally popular with cyclists.
One of the area’s main attractions, Chatsworth House, is around 18 miles away and remains a spectacular sight. Just as spectacular, but in a very different way, are Matlock’s Heights of Abraham and the Poole’s Cavern caves – for views of the Peak District from high above or way down below respectively.
Both Bakewell and Buxton are around 15 miles from Alstonefield and well worth a visit. Sampling Bakewell’s famous pudding is something of a must-do, and there are many pretty places to walk among its quaint old buildings and along the River Wye. Buxton has plenty to see and do too, including the Pavilion Gardens, Opera House and a nearby Go Ape course… there really is something for everyone to discover in the Peak District.
East Midlands Airport 1 hour, Manchester Airport 1 hour 15mins.
