Highfield Cottage is a lovely two bedroom, semi-detached property tucked away down a quiet lane next to the owners home, close to a private fishing pond and wooded area. Once stepping inside the property, you are greeted by a thoughtfully decorated interior. The two bedrooms are located on different floors offering extra privacy to guests. The master bedroom is on the second floor and is equipped with an en-suite shower room. Outside, there is a garden with a patio area, and steps leading down to the private hot tub, where you can spend a relaxing evening.
Highfield Cottage is ideally located to visit the National Trust Calke Abbey, a historic house within a 600-acre nature reserve, along with Staunton Harold Reservoir and its yacht club. The largest inland marina in Europe can be found just 4 miles away at Willington Mercia House, not to mention Donnington race track, which houses the Grand Prix collection in the museum. The property lies in the National Forest, where you are given access to a wealth of beautiful countryside suitable for walking, bird watching, cycling and dog walking. A drive of approximately 25 miles north takes you to the Peak District, with Chatsworth House and the historic towns of Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath, with a plethora of activities for people of all ages to enjoy.
After a day exploring, you can venture back to Melbourne and enjoy its wealth of shops, pubs, restaurants and fabulous architectural properties. Highfield Cottage really is the perfect place to get away from it all! Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
