Courtyard Cottage at Dam Hall Barn is a delightful semi-detached stone built cottage that has been lovingly restored over time, and is full of warmth, character and charm. Set around a pretty cobbled courtyard next to the friendly owner’s home, it can be found at the end of a private drive in the peaceful village of Peak Forest, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. To the rear of the property is a private sitting-out area offering superb, far-reaching countryside views, and for those outdoor enthusiasts, access to acres of grounds.
Surrounded by excellent walking country you’ll find ample lanes, bridleways and paths perfect for cycling and walking. A 10-minute stroll will take you directly to a local pub serving food, and Eldon Hole, one of the seven wonders of the Peak District, is just over a mile away. The large village of Tideswell with ample amenities can be reached in around a 5-minute drive, and the pretty village of Edale, which is also home to the start/end of the long distance Pennine Way footpath, is around a 15-minute drive. The beautiful honeypot village of Castleton can also be reached in around 15 minutes, as can the fascinating plague village of Eyam. The larger towns of both Buxton and Bakewell are just 20 minutes away making this a wonderful central base. Shop 4¼ miles, pub and restaurant 175 yards.

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.
