A perfect short break in Hartington

5 of 5
5 hiking friends had a lovely stay in Knowl Cottage and were very comfortable in their surroundings. Ideal location in the village and the cottage had everything you need.

Warm and welcoming cottage, good location

5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Lion Cottage very much. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds comfortable. Having two bathrooms was a bonus, especially with two teenagers in tow. The main living room was warm and cosy, as was the second reception room. Some nice walks straight from the cottage but it is also conveniently located for exploring other areas and attractions in the Peak District. Overall a lovely place to stay for our first break in Derbyshire - we would certainly use this cottage again.
