    About this property

    Longnor 3 miles. With its lovely rural location in Newtown, three miles from the delightful village of Longnor, you can enjoy charming countryside views from all aspects of this characterful, detached stone cottage. S39670 is a cosy romantic retreat with a woodburner to snuggle up in front of and a roll-top bath if you fancy a luxurious soak after a long day. Step outside and take a seat in the private patio, with a glass of whatever you fancy, and watch the sun set on the uninterrupted views of the Staffordshire Peak District. With stone floor and beams, the ground floor is open plan with a well-equipped modern kitchen, dining table and comfortable lounge area with the woodburner set in a stone hearth fireplace. The first floor has one king-size double bedroom, which benefits from lots of natural light due to the additional Velux window. The en-suite bathroom adds a sense of luxury to your stay, with its roll-top bath and rain shower. Outside, the enclosed patio garden is not overlooked by any other properties and offers spectacular open country views. Nearby, the quaint cobbled village of Longnor provides an array of shops and traditional pubs, whilst the Manifold Valley and Tissington Trail offer great walking and cycling opportunities. The spa town of Buxton, the lovely market town of Bakewell and the thrilling Alton Towers theme park are all within easy reach, providing a range of days out. A cosy hideaway retreat and a central base for an action-packed break rolled into one.

    Mr Toal ‐ 1 Mar 2018
    "This cottage is very well placed for immediate walks in scenic countryside from the door step. Alternatively there are several trails a short car ride away as well as several interesting towns and country houses/country parks which are worth a visit."
    Mrs Mayes ‐ 1 Mar 2018
    "Fantastic cottage, in a remote location with views across the Dales. The kitchen had everything that you needed and more! The bed was comfortable, which was important after you’ve enjoyed the beautiful countryside. Bathroom had a great shower, and deep bath! And enough hot water to fill it. The only negative thing (in my opinion) was the lounge seating wasn’t that comfortable, after a long day walking I like to relax in a comfy chair and put my feet up, and this wasn’t possible, I think a little rethinking and removing one of the tables this would be possible. Overall we had a great stay and loved our time in the dales and will be back."

    "This is a perfect little hideaway close to the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border. The owners have put a lot of thought into furnishing the cottage: - big comfortable bed - huge bathtub and rainfall shower head - TV upstairs and downstairs - a very toasty log burner (which made the cottage so warm in November we had to crack the window...) - selection of DVDs and games There is an enclosed patio with table and chairs outside, overlooking farmland all the way to the horizon. Gorgeous. A beautiful Peak District pick!"
    - Mrs Lewis, June 2017 ‐ 20 Jul 2017

    - Miss Gibson, November 2016 ‐ 20 Jul 2017
    "The cottage was so cosy and inviting. It was very well equipped and well thought out. Our only complaint was the creaky bed but apart from that we had a fabulous stay!"
    - Mrs Warren, June 2016 ‐ 20 Jul 2017
    "The isolated and remote location of S39670 was utterly idyllic, very warm, scrupulously clean and comfortable, well equipped and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and the bed-linen sparkling white and clean, as were the towels, which were also fluffy and soft. The WIFI signal was excellent and problem-fre - useful as there's no mobile 'phone signal for several miles in every direction (which, for me, was a plus.) Ample parking space. The owner was very helpful, without being at all intrusive of my privacy. I particularly liked the fact that, in every particular, the cottage was supplied with clear information (on, for example refuse collection) but without overburdening the holidaymaker with tons of unnecessary information."
