Warm and cosy in a beautiful location

5 of 5
The cottage is a perfect base for a weekend in the Peaks. It is deceptively spacious and the layout upstairs really makes the most of the space. We had snow but the cottage was cosy and snug on our return from some bracing walks. The cottage is set in a really beautiful spot; the village of Edale is really pretty, there are lots of great walks locally and it and has 2 great pubs.

Lovely place to stay

4 of 5
Thank you for letting my little dog Jack stay at The Haybarn which is near to the town of New Mills (10 minute to walk into town) which has shops, pubs and places to eat . Great views from the property and beside the canal with good walks (despite the bad weather). Accommodation is well kept, clean and has everything you need for your stay. The owners introduced themselves and were available for any concerns (we did not need anything). I would definitely return and recommend this property to my friends and family. I thought the price was really reasonable.
