The detail

A snug retreat in the heart of the Peak District National Park, The Stables at Rocking Stones is a former stable block beautifully converted into a romantic bolthole.

This newly renovated cottage dates back to the 17th century and is filled with original features and luxurious high-spec modern touches. The property's generous terrace, bounded by a hand built dry-stone wall, opens onto leafy views of the Peak District, and while you'll find nothing but peace and quiet at Rocking Stones, you're only a short walk from the pretty little village of Birchover and a few minutes drive from the famous landmarks of Chatsworth and Bakewell.

Sleeping two, The Stables at Rocking Stones promises a relaxing stay. The property is situated across one level, featuring a lounge area with a wood-burning stove and underfloor heating to keep you cosy in the winter months. WiFi is available throughout, alongside a TV with cable/satellite TV and books, in case you fancy a screen break.

The kitchen features high wooden beams and is furnished with a fridge, cooking basics including pots and pans, oil, salt and pepper, dishes and silverware, an induction cooker, an oven, kettle, cafetière and toaster. A dining table makes the perfect spot to enjoy an evening meal, or on sunny days the outdoor terrace offers a fabulous space for some alfresco dining.

With a memory foam mattress, 100% cotton sheets and a fluffy feather and down duvet, the bedroom guarantees an uninterrupted night of peace. And thanks to the huge roof lights you can get comfy and star gaze from bed, as the lack of light pollution makes here for dark skies and bright stars.

The neat and spotless en suite bathroom boasts a luxurious walk-in rain shower, fluffy towels and robes, with little extras such as a hair dryer, shampoo and shower gel provided.

Perfect for nature lovers, The Stables at Rocking Stones’ location in the middle of the Peak District National Park means there are stunning views in every direction. Hike across the Monsal Trail or indulge in a trip to Chatsworth House, bike the Tissington Trail or a walk from Ridge Walk Mam Tor to Losehill. The geologic formation of Kinder Scout is a fantastic day trip for geography fans, as are Treak Cliff Cavern and Speedwell Cavern. Jacob’s Ladder is accessible from here, and the Bakewell Old House Museum is a must-see. Other beautiful walks from the door include Stanton Moor and the Druid Stone Circle, or Robin Hood’s Stride and its Hermit’s Cave.

There are also two great pubs only a ten minute walk away. One of these has a fantastic Sardinian chef and its own microbrewery.
