Manor Cottage is a spacious, detached cottage offering elements of luxury with a bath/shower room per bedroom, large farmhouse style kitchen, cosy living room complete with wood burner, and a large courtyard offering superb open views of the stunning surrounding countryside. Located in the limestone built Peak District village of Wardlow, formerly part of the Chastworth Estate, the setting is high within the glorious White Peak landscape. As a single road village made up of cottages, character houses and working farms it can be found between the popular beauty spot of Monsal Head and the large, well appointed village of Tideswell within the Peak District National Park. The pretty villages of Ashford in the Water, Litton, and Great and Little Longstone are within a 5-10 minute drive, as is the ever popular market town of Bakewell meaning an ample supply of local pubs, eateries, shops and attractions. Walks are available straight from the door including a path at Wardlow Hay Cop known as ’The Pingle’ which takes you to Cressbrook Dale, where in late spring orchids and cowslips bloom. The magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall can both be reached in around 20 minutes, and the towns of Buxton, Ashbourne and Matlock in around half an hour. Shop 2¼ miles, pub 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.
