About John & Vanessa Marriott
Vanessa and John are pleased to introduce you to our new business Post Card Cottages. After a long career in Medical Sales and the Agricultural Supply trade we have decided to retire early and have a lifestyle change! Actually it is really a semi-retirement plan. We love the Peak District and have wanted to move to Derbyshire for a long-time. We have spent many weekends and bank holidays walking in the Peak District and just love the area! So over the last few years we have been planning how we might be able to live and retire to the area. Postcard Cottages is our new business venture and will have three or possibly four holiday cottages available to rent out as holiday cottages. Our aim is to offer lovely cottages in delightful locations furnished to a high standard. Where possible we are using up-cycled and refurbished furniture to give a contemporary and fresh feel. Johns business is being sold in 2015 and this move has enabled us to get the plans going. In December 2014 we found our delightful cottage in the peaceful village of Biggin-by-Hartington. The property was purchased early in 2015. The property had been empty for over a year and was in need of some serious TLC! The builders got started in March 2015 initially knocking down the old garden shed and converting the downstairs bathroom extension into a lovely dining room space with views over the fields behind the house. Plasterers, plumbers, electricians and joiners got to work…you can see the progress on our Facebook page…postcardcottages…

Really enjoyed our few days staying the cottage. Nicely done and cozy, just right for us. Paddy, our dog, enjoyed it too with the lovely walk straight out the door across the fields.
We enjoyed walking down the road to the Waterloo Inn which was very welcoming. Good traditional pub.
Our first time to the Peak District and we certainly weren’t disappointed. Stunning scenery. Hopefully we’ll return to explore more.
Lovely, clean and cosy cottage
The cottage was lovely. Very warm and cosy and well equipped. Walks straight from the door and food at the local pub was delicious. Lovely part of the country to stay in. Will definitely go again!
Lovely cosy cottage and very well equipped, amazing walks on the door step and a great pub a few minutes walk away. What's not to like!
Lovely Dog Friendly cottage
Everything met our requirements from the initial correspondence, information pack and a lovely cottage with beautiful surroundings, even our dog enjoyed himself. We were fortunate that we had excellent weather for our 5 night stay and were able to sit outside for breakfast, if it had have been raining everyday it would have been nice to have a tumble dryer; however the cottage has everything you need.
The enclosed gardens mean't that we didn't have to worry about the dog straying away which enabled us to be more relaxed.
A two minute walkdown the road to the Waterloo inn, were you can have a relaxed time in a friendly atmosphere, we ate in the pub every night (dog friendly) and felt that there was an excellent choice on the menu, all our meals were well presented, tasty and cooked to out satisfaction.
We had a fantastic holiday, definately will stay again in the future
lovely short break
My wife and I plus dog were looking for few nights 'away from it all' and this cottage was ideal. We found it well equipped, comfortable, clean and blissfully quiet. Biggin is a peaceful place and very well located in the Derbyshire Dales with Ashbourne, Matlock, Bakewell and surrounding areas all easily accessed by car in addition to the local walking possibilities on the Tissington trail. We hope to be back.
Perfect little cottage, dog friendly with everything you need home from home.
Just loved everything about this cottage. Perfect location, great pub in the village that serves really superb food and walks straight out of the door. The cottage is really well equipped and a pleasure to stay in.
Plenty of local footpaths, the Tissington Trail is just 1/4 mile away either by road or across the fields. The trail is great for car free biking and walking. The trail is an old disused railway so is easy going. The Village Pub is The Waterloo Inn 01298 842 84 and there is a good restaurant at the hotel in the village; Biggin Hall 01298 844 51. Both the pub and the hotel take bookings.
