Set amidst the lovely scenery of the Peak District National Park, Rose Cottage is an excellent property at whatever time of year that you wish to stay.
Rose Cottage is a most delightful, Grade II listed terraced cottage, which exudes charm, character and impeccable taste from the moment you walk through the door. Ideally placed for exploring the whole of beautiful Derbyshire, it provides outstanding accommodation for a wonderful break. The spacious living room has comfy sofas, whilst the snug has a cosy multi-fuel burner and a quaint seating area to relax and unwind in. The well-equipped kitchen has a dining area to one end, and an exterior door leading to the attractive, enclosed, rear patio garden, which is a sunny, sheltered and private spot to enjoy afternoon tea. The staircase leads up to the three pretty bedrooms and a fully tiled contemporary bathroom.
The pretty village of Great Longstone is situated in a wonderful location in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Nestled in an enviable position, it is flanked by Longstone Edge, with Bakewell and Chatsworth House close by. The village offers two fantastically traditional village pubs, a quaint village shop, 18th-century stone cottages and a market cross that is situated on the delightful village green. The Monsal Trail runs through the village and provides 8½ miles of scenic, traffic-free walking and cycling, with the spectacular viaduct at nearby Monsal Head and several tunnels along the route to keep the whole family interested. A short stroll away, you will find the picture postcard village of Ashford-in-the-Water, which boasts medieval Sheepwash Bridge, once a major crossing point over the River Wye for packhorses delivering mail from Derby.
The renowned market town of Bakewell is nearby, which can be accessed via the Monsal Trail, and offers a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, together with frequent local farmers’ markets. Take a stroll along the river bank to feed the ducks and geese and see the ‘love locks’ on the foot bridge. The spa town of Buxton with its Opera House is also within driving distance. Visit the many stately homes in the area, including iconic Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, or take a trip to the World Heritage Site of the Richard Arkwright Mills in Cromford, all of which are within easy reach. With the impressive castle and caverns at Castleton close by, you will be spoilt for choice at this fantastic location. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
