Pickle Cottage description

Holiday home
Pickle Cottage is a fantastic, semi-detached cottage, nestled in the heart of the Derbyshire village of Middleton. The cottage offers a double bedroom, a family room with a double bed, twin beds on a mezzanine level, and an en-suite shower room. There is also a fabulous family bathroom and an open plan living area providing a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area, and a sitting area. Outside, there is a patio with furniture and ample off road parking. Pickle Cottage is a wonderful base for friends and families escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life and exploring the Peak District.

The former quarry and lead mining village of Middleton is set on a prominent hillside above the nearby towns of Wirksworth and Cromford, just eight miles from the popular destination of Matlock. The village layout is composed of a long main street leading into nearby Wirksworth, which is home to a village shop and a good local pub. The surrounding countryside offers wonderful walking and cycling routes throughout the region, with the disused High Peak Railway line close by recently converted into a path known as the High Peak Cycle Trail. The nearby town of Matlock provides a good range of shops and pubs, whilst the many National Trust properties and museums throughout the area are not to be missed.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Gas central heating. Range cooker with electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD, WiFi. Fuel and power inc. in the rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in the rent. Ample off road parking. Outside, at the rear of property, there is a small secluded patio area with BBQ, chiminea and seating area for use in the warmer months. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 2 miles, pub next door. Note: Limited headroom in mezzanine area, accessed by very narrow staircase, care to be taken. Note: Pub does not serve food.

We had an absolute fantastic break! The cottage and area surrounding was brilliant, lovely surroundings and really friendly people. The owner was really friendly and couldn't do enough for us! Thank you :)

A fantastic, well equipped property which was deceptively big inside. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we left and it was completely dog friendly.

A comfortable cottage finished to high standard and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. We were given a great welcome by the owners who run the adjacent pub which must rate as one of the friendliest in the country! Extremely dog friendly they even provided dog towels! Well located in attractive village with lots of great local walks for all levels, bike hire and trails, water sports in next valley and easy access to rest of the Dales.

The location in the heart of the village with lots of wonderful walks on the doorstep and very little traffic - it was like going back in time. The Cottage was comfortable and had everything you need.

Pickle Cottage was in an excellent position for us in the Peak District, being central to most places. The cottage was well equipped and decorated to a high standard.

A lovely cottage and great location. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay! The real bonus was in the little touches, friendliness and the quality of the accommodation that, for us, made the difference. A great area for walking, sightseeing and just relaxing. The pub was excellent and was particularly enjoyed by the real ale drinkers of our family! Many, many thanks.

The cottage smelt fresh and was very clean. Everyone was very friendly. The cottage was a good base in a nice village to explore the Dales.

The location was perfect for our needs, cycling, walking and socialising in lovely pubs! The locals were so friendly and helpful and we were made to feel welcome by the cottage owners and all the people we met in the village. The cottage kitchen is more than adequate to facilitate cooking on an evening of which we did and if that is too much trouble then many eating establishments are not too far away . We had a brilliant time.
