Cotterill Farm Cottages

Buxton, Derbyshire

Overview

Five four star stone cottages on a non-working farm, in a glorious location over looking dales and rolling countryside in the heart of the White Peak area of the Peak District. They have been given the fairly unusual Gold Award for ‘excellence, particularly with regard to service’

Three cottages are for four persons, one is for three persons -this is all on the ground floor and particulary suited for the less agile - and the other is an equally large cottage but only sleeping two. Although consistently graded 4 Star, the owners constantly strive to improve standards in all cottages, with continouous improvements in each one. The cottages have exposed beams and stone-work. They are 300 yards up our private drive and form part of a courtyard facing outwards over the surrounding fields and dales to give excellent views and some degree of privacy. In front of these cottages is a large grassed and garden area. There is ample area for off-road parking. The two person cottage has a galleried bedroom overlooking the large living room, in the centre of which is a log burner standing on a stone plinth acting as a focal point It also has a five piece suite in the classy bathroom. All but one of the cottages has two tvs in each cottage.

General Details

There are two wild flowers meadows on the owners land, one of which borders a nature reserve through which a footpath leads after just over a mile to the Rive Dove (at Wolfscote Dale). One mile downstream is Dovedale. The cottages are located off a quiet country lane between the highly popular village of Hartington and its smaller, quieter neighbour, Biggin. Both villages have pubs serving full meals cafes and a church. There is also an excellent restaurants about a mile away. Biggin has a lovely Hall where excellent cream teas are sold.

Numerous footpaths surround the land on which the cottages stand, offering unrivalled walking in the best part of the White Peak. The highly popular Tissington Trail, which runs for 17 miles, is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and is less than 1 mile from us. Two further trails, (both of similar distance), are within 3 miles. These three tracks are ideal for family cycling, as is the network of quiet minor roads, which can be accessed at numerous points along the trails.
