Description

Nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park, this deceptively large, semi-detached Grade II listed stone-built cottage offers spacious accommodation in the hillside village of Curbar. Full of character with beamed ceilings, stone flag flooring and mullioned windows, it makes a wonderful base and offers stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Set below Curbar Gap and Froggatt Edge, there is ample walking available from the door, together with climbing and mountain biking.
A traditional pub serving food is a mere 10-minute walk, and the nearby village of Baslow, 1½ miles, offers shops, pubs and even a Michelin starred restaurant. The hugely popular market town of Bakewell can be reached in around 15 minutes, as can the magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. The National Trust Longshaw Estate and the historic plague village of Eyam are around a 10-minute drive, and other Peak District towns and villages such as Buxton, Castleton, Hathersage and Matlock are all reachable within half an hour. Shop 1 mile, 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.
