Comfortable well equipped cottage, with Countryside Views.

Located at the end of the Manifold Valley, mid way between the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek. The cottage is situated in a quiet cul de sac on the edge of the village and benefits from an enclosed rear garden with patio furniture and a private drive providing off road parking for two vehicles. It is heated by oil fired central heating. Heating, electricity, bedding and towels are included in the price, as is Wifi.

The cottage sleeps up to five people and has one double room, one twin (can be zip linked to form a king) and a single room.

The cottage is located in a superb walking and cycling area and is an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions in the area. 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. Dovedale, Thorpe Cloud and the pretty village of Ilam are less than a 15 minute drive away.

Historic houses and gardens within the area include Chatsworth House with its farmyard, adventure playground and the many events held there throughout the year; Haddon Hall, Tissington Hall (restricted opening) and various National Trust properties including Sudbury Hall with its museum of childhood, Calke Abbey, Kedleston Hall and Biddulph Grange Gardens.

Carsington Water which is within easy travelling distance of the cottage offers water sports, sailing, cycle hire, fishing, a children's play area and a bird watching centre with several hides, or you can just walk around the reservoir (a full circuit is around 8.5 miles). Two miles north of Leek is Rudyard Lake with it's miniature railway and activities on offer include walking, fishing and boating. Tittesworth Reservoir, also near Leek offers walks, a visitor centre and water sports. For the more adventurous, visit Wild Park Derbyshire, between Ashbourne and Derby for paint balling, laser tag, quad biking and archery.
The pretty market towns of Bakewell, Ashbourne, Leek & Buxton (renowned for its spa water and Opera House) are all well worth a visit and easily accessible from the cottage.

Other attractions within the area include Gulliver’s Kingdom & the Heights of Abraham at Matlock; Poole’s country park, caverns and Go Ape at Buxton; Alton Towers and Splash Landings indoor pool (10 minute drive), The Peak Wildlife Park (10 minute drive); Waterworld at Stoke; Crich tramway museum and the Churnet Valley Railway.

The communication from Inez was fantastic and she kindly gave us some ideas for days out in advance of our holiday. Directions and check-in details were clear and easy to follow. The welcome basket was a lovely treat, which we very much appreciated. Lots of information in the cottage about the local area and things to do. We loved doing the puzzles and playing the games too! The cottage was spotlessly clean and had plenty of space. Very well equipped, with everything we needed for our stay. Lovely location with a takeaway, local pub and village shop all within walking distance. We visited the Peak Wildlife Park where we had a lovely experience feeding the wallabies. We also visited Buxton, Matlock Bath, Heights of Abraham and we did the walk from Ilam Park to Dovedale. Of course, we couldn''t be in the area and not visit Alton Towers! Great fun! All in all a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage. Thank you :)

Had a great week. Have stayed here before about 10 Years ago and it was the best equipped cottage we had stayed in. And now it''s upped it''s game again! Everything has been thought of. We didn''t want for anything. The house was spotlessly clean and the owners were so easy to deal with. Can''t fault it.

Lovely, home from home.

We had a lovely stay here, the location was great for Alton Towers. (12 min drive) Everything you need is in the house, all very clean. Our son enjoyed the football pitches in the field opposite and my daughter and I enjoyed watching the leaping lambs. The owners were on hand if you needed them, very responsive to our queries. Would definitely visit again. Many thanks
