Holiday Rental House
The cottage on The Square is full of character, from the original wooden beams, log burner and mullon windows, if you are looking for a cosy break in a traditional country cottage, then this is perfect. Enter into the kitchen/diner, complete with a homely touch, and you can enjoy breakfast or dinner amongst the heart-warming layout. Cosy up in the sitting room before the woodburner, and be impressed by the signature fireplace and overhead exposed beams that bring a real sense of character. The ground floor is also home to a twin bedroom (zip/link beds, can be double upon request), neutrally decorated for a classic finish. Take the stairs to arrive at the king-size bedroom (zip/link bed, can be twin upon request), wonderfully presented with a built-in wardrobe and a dressing table.

The single bedroom has a pull-out bed and is convenient for a child or extra guest to enjoy a peaceful nights sleep away from it all. A family bathroom boasts an all-white suite and completes the accommodation. The Cottage on The Square is nestled in the Derbyshire hills in the centre of the conservation village of Wensley, just 3 miles from Matlock, with some wonderful walking and stunning views all around, Wensley is the place to be. The market towns of Ashbourne, Buxton, Matlock and Bakewell, as well as Historic Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall are all nearby. For keen walkers and cyclists, the village lies within 5 miles of the Tissington, The Limestone Way and Dovedale. Just one mile away is the conservation village of Winster which is situated within the Peak District National Park and is an extremely pretty place with a charming 17th century market house and other imposing 18th century houses on its three main streets. Less imposing, but no less endearing, are the little alleyways or ‘ginnels’ off Main Street, which are well worth exploring. Within the village is a well-stocked community store incorporating a Post Office, and two pubs - both serving food and local traditional beer. Feel right at home in this well-appointed location. Facilities: • Gas central heating with woodburner • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, • TV with Freeview, • WiFi, • selection of books, games and DVDs • Fuel, power and starter pack for fire inc. in rent • Bed linen and towels inc. in rent • Travel cot (bring own bedding) stair gate and highchair available upon request and if available. • Off road parking (not reserved) Please note - there is no private outside space at The Cottage.More
