The natural stone tiles in the living room run through into the snug. A lovely versatile space, it is perfect as a cosy nook to snuggle down on the sofa to at the side of the stunning tunnel fire.

Hot-tub, garden & den

The french windows in the living room lead directly onto the private terrace at the back of the cottage. With its gorgeous driftwood tables and seats, it seems to have been taken straight out of a fairy tale!
Wrap yourself in one of the warm fluffy bathrobes in the downstairs wet-room. Step down onto the sunken patio area and slip into the inviting Canadian Spa Hot-Tub. The hot bubbling water waiting to help you soak away the stresses and strains of modern living.

Here you will also find “The Den”. A warm and cosy Scandinavian style cabin, often used as a handy changing room for the tub, but so much more. With games, magazines and plenty of space to relax.
The tiny and welcoming nearby shop is happy to order meat from the local farm shop (a traditional working farm), perfect for cooking on the hand-crafted barbecue. The kitchen door opens onto the terrace so it’s easy to nip inside for extra ketchup!

The beautiful open front garden, with its low stone wall, beautiful plants, and immaculate lawn, commands excellent views of Kirk Ireton. The cottage has private parking of course, although the rather infrequent village bus stop is very close by for those eager to leave the car behind. Alternatively you can sit on the garden bench and watch village life unfold. If you feel like a break from the self catering aspect of your stay, the uniquely famous 17th Century pub ‘The Barley Mow‘ is nearby, just twenty yards down the hill.
