The Manifold Trail which is a surfaced track suitable for both walking and cycling runs for 8.5 miles between Waterhouses and Hulme End. Other cycle and walking trails within the area include the Tissington, High Peak and Monsal Trails. Lovely walks are available along the many miles of footpaths and lanes within the surrounding area and the network of surfaced trails and lanes within the area make the cottage an ideal base for walking all year round.

Family Getaway

By Rhona M on 19-Sep-2020

The property was very well equipped and in pristine condition. We had two dogs with us who settled in great loving the garden and the field opposite the property. Inez the owner was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome even though we were unable to meet due to Covid restrictions. The Welcome Pack was very much appreciated, and she has thought of everything that you may need throughout your stay. You know it has been a good holiday when every member of the party would love to stay again.

Perfectly situated, spotless and extremely well equipped.

By Adrianne C on 09-Sep-2020

This cottage had everything you could need and more. It was cleaned to a high standard. We felt very safe during these coronavirus times. The owner was accommodating and always answered questions promptly. It is situated well for many attractions and even though the weather wasn’t the best we found things to do and had a wonderful time.

Charming and welcoming

By Debbie G on 04-Sep-2020

The owners of this delightful property have thought of everything. It truly is home from home. Beautiful area with plenty to do and see. We had an issue with the heating when we first arrived which was a bank holiday Monday. They were so helpful, apologetic and proactive that within the hour the plumber had visited and problem resolved. Totally 100% recommend this beautiful holiday home. Thank you, you can guarantee on us returning.
