My old friend and I stayed here for a week to have a relaxing holiday and to celebrate her birthday. The cottage itself is stone built, part of an old converted farmhouse, in the tiny village of Peak Forest in the Peak National Park. Inside, it is very simple and unspoilt, with stone flagged and wooden floors, a lovely wooden table and dresser, and all kitchen needs supplied, including tea towels, bin bags, cutlery, china, and pots and pans. There was a toaster, a microwave (we couldn't use it, being old school and not very tech-savvy!) , a very modern electric cooker and hob, and a fridge.
The living room was compact but quite adequate for 2 people, with a large sofa and chair, and a TV. In the corner was a delightful curly cast iron staircase. Upstairs, there was a double room with a double bed, lovely large wooden wardrobe and dressing table, and a twin room with 2 single beds. The only downfall was the single bed I slept in was very creaky. The bathroom had toilet, shower and hand basin, and towels were supplied by the owner. The shower unit was not the best, we couldn't adjust the heating level and the shower head could do with replacing . . but it was adequate. Everything was spotlessly clean.
The living room had french doors which led out the back onto a simple garden with table and chairs, and a view over the hills which was breathtaking. We spent many a morning looking out at the sheep which come right up to the stone wall of the garden. Incredibly peaceful at the back. There is a pub down the road in the village, and a supermarket in nearby Chapel-en-le-Frith. There are many walks and wonderful things to see within a short drive from the cottage, and the owner has supplied many leaflets and booklets to give you an idea of what to see. The cottage is dog friendly too, and although we stayed in the back part of the building, there are 2 other rental accommodations within the house. The cottage is centrally heated and warm. We had a lovely week, and I would recommend it to my friends. Perhaps one small downside, the road on which the cottage sits can be quite busy in the morning, and because of it's grade 2 listing, double glazing cannot be installed. Just a small thing really! Altogether a lovely place
