This pretty, stone-built, semi-detached cottage can be found in the small north Derbyshire village of Grindleford, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Retaining original character throughout, the cottage is warm, comfortable and cosy, and enjoys an elevated position with beautiful far reaching views. The surrounding area is home to wooded hillsides and classic gritstone edge scenery, and is well known to walkers and climbers of all abilities, especially around the renowned Frogatt Edge and Padley Gorge.

Just 7 miles north of Bakewell, there are plenty of walks available from the door, and Grindleford train station, just over 1 mile from the cottage, makes this a great base for exploring. It also offers a direct service to both Manchester and Sheffield, as well as uniquely being home to a café which processes and sells Grindleford Spring Water. Just a stone’s throw from the cottage is a superb pub serving local food, where you can take advantage of discounted breakfast, lunch and evening meals, or take part in the regular pub quiz.

Just 5 minutes away is the village of Hathersage, most famous for its associations with Robin Hood and the Eyre family, as well as being home to an open-air swimming pool, which is now open all year round. The fascinating plague village of Eyam is around 10 minutes away, and the ever popular market town of Bakewell, which is home to the traffic-free Monsal Trail, and the magnificent Chatsworth House are around 15 minutes. Romantic Haddon Hall can be reached in around 25 minutes, Matlock and Matlock Bath, with its cable car to the Heights of Abraham, is around 30 minutes, and Britain’s premier theme park, Alton Towers, can be reached in around an hour.

About the local area

Located within The Peak District National Park, this area includes Winnatt's Pass and Mam Tor in the west, the Edale Valley where the famous Pennine Way starts, Ladybower Reservoir where they filmed `The Dambusters' and south following the River Derwent to Hathersage.

The Hope Valley has some of the prettiest villages in the Peak District including Bamford close to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs, Hope at the junction of the River Noe and Peakshole Water where the Edale Valley joins the Hope Valley and Castleton, famous for Peveril Castle and surrounded by Mam Tor, Winnats Gorge and Cave Dale.

Castleton is one of the most popular and pretty villages in the Peak District. Set in the midst of beautiful scenery it has lovely walks and a ruined Norman castle; Peveril Castle first built in 1080. Around the village square are some fine old cottages, pubs and the church. The natural caverns of Cave Dale and Peak Dale are reached from the top of the main square and several shops in the village sell `Blue John' (a local Fluorspar), the ideal holiday souvenir.

Visitors can leave the car behind and travel the length of the Hope Valley by train; The Hope Valley scenic railway stops at Grindleford, Hathersage, Bamford, Hope and Edale villages.

Like much of Peak District this area is popular with walkers, of particular note is Mam Tor, with its hill fort and wonderful views in all directions and of course the Pennine Way.
