Sitting in the hamlet of Ecton, and overlooking Staffordshire's Manifold Valley, is the beautiful country escape of Fern Cottage. Sleeping up to four guests, the cottage offers flawless views of the surrounding area and benefits from being situated in the Peak District. Its envious location makes Fern Cottage a superb base from which to explore the UK's first National Park. This hillside gem is the perfect retreat away from the rat race of city life, promising you relaxation, tranquillity, and access to some of the UK's most gorgeous vistas. So, come and see just how easy it is to get lost in the easy going pace of country living.
Fern Cottage is comprised of a grey stone brick, lending it a striking rustic charm. Throughout, guests will note the charming features and care that the owners have put into making Fern Cottage the ideal home from home. Upon entering, you will happen upon the fully equipped kitchen, containing all mod-cons. Leading on from this is the orangery/dining area, which provides views of, and access to, the gardens. The cosy sitting room has two comfortable couches, an original stone fireplace, and a wood burner. Head upstairs and you will come to the two bedrooms: one king size and one super-king (or twin). Both rooms are meticulously decorated and boast plush mattresses and fine linens. There is a large family bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Step outside the cottage to enjoy the terrace garden and its arresting views of the village and surrounding hills.
The Peak District is the UK's first national park, known for its many stunning moors, valleys, and gorges. A favourite of nature lovers, the area offers countless walking and cycling trails to explore. The region is dotted with numerous country houses which are open to the public including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Kedleston Hall, and Calke Abbey. There are also several fine eateries to avail of, such as The Devonshire Arms in Hartington, Callow Hall in Ashbourne, and the award-winning George Inn in Alstonefield. Should you wish to venture into the city, then Sheffield is an hour's drive north-east. Manchester - one of the UK's largest cities known for its arts, cuisine, shopping, and nightlife - lies less have one and a half hours to the north-west.
