Railway Cottage is a truly wonderful, two bedroom, detached holiday cottage, set within the gorgeous High Peak, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the owner living next door. Situated in the grounds of a former station house, with its elevated hill-top position, the views from this cottage are quite breathtaking. All on the ground floor, you will find a peaceful living room where you can grab a good book and take a seat on the comfy large leather sofa. At the opposite end of the cottage you’ll find the kitchen/dining room. The well-equipped kitchen boasts lovely units and all the usual mod cons. There are two double bedrooms both offering en-suite facilities, and one being zip and link. Outside the property, make the most of the lovely courtayrd and bask in the sun, or enjoy a meal al fresco.
Railway Cottage is situated in the village of Longcliffe, a crossroads hamlet in the English county of Derbyshire.

Enjoy the scenic Peak District National Park and tranquil Carsington Water, with lots of activities and amenities including cycling, walking, water sports, an adventure playground and a waterside restaurant.
Close by is the popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, which has been attracting visitors to the area since the spa was developed in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, Matlock offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car, which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham, a great place for all the family with its caves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. Also just a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. To the north is the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House and Park. Other places to visit nearby include Haddon Hall, Tissington, Ashbourne, Buxton and Keddleston Hall.
