Holiday Rental House
Situated at about 1200 feet above sea level, this cosy moorland cottage is on the northern edge of the Peak District National Park. There are distant views - great for weather watching! Drifting mists, clouds and starry nights. Visitors use words like well-equipped, peaceful, and comfortable when describing their stay. There is a log burner for those chilly autumn and winter nights, although full central heating is included in the weekly rental cost. On arrival you will find cosy towelling dressing gowns, tea, coffee, eggs and a pint of farm milk. There is overnight use of a tumble dryer (if a light shower should catch you out!). An initial supply of logs, kindling and coal for the woodburner is provided. If you wish, you can pre-order farm milk, free range eggs and locally sourced br...Situated at about 1200 feet above sea level, this cosy moorland cottage is on the northern edge of the Peak District National Park.
