Description

Located in the heart of the Peak District National Park in the picturesque hamlet of Hulme End, this stylishly converted stone holiday cottage dates back to the 1880s and comes complete with the opportunity for free fishing onsite. Comfortably and tastefully furnished to a very good standard throughout, it is full of thoughtful personal touches. The cottage is ideally located just 250 yards from a 200-year-old coaching inn, simply making them a perfect base in which to relax and unwind or from which to explore the area. Nestling on the edge of the River Manifold and the Manifold Valley, the surrounding Derbyshire and Staffordshire countryside is both spectacular and diverse. There are ample opportunities for walking, cycling and even horse riding with the Manifold Trail accessible straight from the door, and the Tissington Trail just 2 miles down the road in the Peak District village of Hartington. The popular dramatic rocky outcrop known as The Roaches, long loved by both walkers and climbers alike can also be reached in just 15 minutes. The busy market towns of Leek and Ashbourne are both easily reachable within half an hour, as is Buxton with its famous opera house and stunning Georgian architecture. The Heights of Abraham with its unrivalled views and cable car, the ever popular town of Bakewell, the magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall, and even Alton Towers Theme Park for those thrill seekers, are all also just 30 minutes away. A mere further 10 minutes then brings the stunningly beautiful village of Castleton, The ‘Emma Bridgewater Factory’ full of her locally produced earthenware iconic pottery, and the remarkable plague village of Eyam. Shop, pub and restaurant 250 yards. Bridge View Cottage can be booked with River View Cottage (30173) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
