Description

The Milking Parlour is one of seven stone built holiday cottages nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park, it benefits from open plan accommodation and is ideal for a couple looking for a country retreat. The complex is surrounded by fabulous countryside in an area renowned for its fine walking and cycling. For those wanting to give their cars a true rest, walks can be enjoyed direct from the door with a nature reserve surrounding Cotterill Farm, and the bridleway at the end of the drive takes you to the ever popular village of Hartington with its pubs, cafés and local store. For those with bikes the nearby Sustrans Route 54 links the High Peak Trail to the Tissington Trail, which as a former railway line is also perfect for walkers.
Located midway between Ashbourne and Buxton the cottages are well placed for the host of major tourist attractions that the Peak District offers. The magnificent Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, beautiful village of Castleton, the Dove and Manifold Valleys, plus the attractive local towns of Buxton, Ashbourne, Bakewell and Matlock, can all be reached in under 30 minutes. Ashbourne has a good range of shops, while Buxton has superb architecture including the Opera House. Bakewell has a wonderful setting on the River Wye, and is of course home of the Bakewell Pudding. The former spa town of Matlock and the spectacular location of neighbouring Matlock Bath is the setting for a mining museum, cable car rides and show caves. Finally Britain’s premier theme park Alton Towers is also around ½ hour away. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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.
