The magical triangle of the Roaches, Manifold Valley and Chrome Hill are within easy reach of the historic houses such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. After a full day finish off with great food and local beer in one of the areas restaurants, before returning to settle down under a carpet of stars and a real log burner.
Bleak House Cottage has stood here for hundreds of years.The house and cottage has watched seasons, come and go. Relax and watch the changing dark starry skies, the trees as the burst into leaf and birds arriving and departing. This is nature at its very best, untouched and untainted.
In summer the gardens and fields attract Large Spotted Woodpeckers, Curlews and Nut Hatches. Barn and Tawny Owls nest in the field and come hunting at dusk as Buzzards and Hawks fly across the sky. Our hedgehog awakens and Bleak House Cottage is, once again, at the heart of the undiscovered Peak District at this glorious time of the year.

The cottage was as pictured and incredibly lovely. It is a perfect setting for some restoration, relaxation and walks in nature. Maria also went out of her way to welcome me, making sure the wifi was working, providing a care package and even coordinating a private tour of nearby Leeks with a local historian. Thanks for the great stay!
"The cottage itself was perfect. Warm, spotless, fully equipped with everything you might need, and it's in an idyllic location. The weather while we were there was great which meant we could take full advantage of the recommended walks in the Guest Book and selection of maps provided...... We left feeling really relaxed and would wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful cottage – we can't wait to come back!"
What a beautiful cosy cottage in a peaceful location yet with good access to major roads. Every little detail has been done with love. Maria was a wonderful hostess and gave us lots of information and guidance for days out and for the best places to eat. The welcome hamper with Prosecco and lemon drizzle cake was a lovely touch, too. The log burner made for cosy evenings. We left here sad to say goodbye but refreshed and will certainly be back.
"The Bleak House cottage was exactly what we had hoped for. It was cozy and peaceful with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside... Maria was a wonderful hostess and did so much to make our stay so enjoyable. We heartily recommend Bleak House and would love to come back for another visit." February 2016
"Absolutely beautiful cottage in a stunning location" September 2015
Bleak House Cottage was no less than a dream! We had a wonderful shortbreak in this amazing cottage. The views are breathtaking, Bleak House Cottage is located in a beautiful part of the Peak District. Close to the Roaches and close to picture perfect Longnor. There was a fire burning. We loved everything. It's sort of a healing place, away from busy life... I would live there forever if I could! :) - November 2015
