Description

This beautifully designed and decorated, terraced cottage is one of six converted former farm buildings which are set around a courtyard near Over Haddon. Set in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the property benefits from an elevated position and the location offers superb, panoramic countryside views across the stunning Peak District scenery. The master bedroom has a wooden, four poster kingsize, reclaimed beam bed, and the property is furnished with Indigo furniture. There is an abundance of walks direct from the door, with further opportunities nearby for cycling, horse riding and rock climbing.
Over Haddon itself is a quaint Peak District village which offers a traditional 19th-century pub and award-winning café, and makes a perfect base to explore the spectacular limestone dales of the beautiful Lathkill Dale. In addition, the high quality independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants of the popular historic market town of Bakewell can be easily reached in around 5 minutes. Baslow, 4 miles from Bakewell, is home to the exceptional Chatsworth House and gardens, or visit the medieval manor house of Haddon Hall. You can also join the traffic-free Monsal Trail for walking or cycling.
Nearby Peak District villages include Ashford-in-the-Water and Rowsley, and you can reach the spa town of Buxton, Castleton with its caves, Matlock and Carsington Water in around half an hour. The UK’s premier theme park, Alton Towers, is around a 45-minute drive. Shop 2½ miles, pub 1 mile and restaurant 2 miles.

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.
