This attractive bungalow with a conservatory and pretty enclosed garden overlooks the cricket ground of the small picturesque village of Great Longstone, in the heart of the Peak District.
Great Longstone is just 3 miles from the bustling town of Bakewell, with it’s weekly Monday Market; 1 mile from the lovely village of Ashford in the Water and 10 minutes away from Chatsworth Estate. There are two pubs in the village within 2 minutes’ walk providing good food and a warm welcome. The village also has a small convenient shop and a dairy where you can get milk and eggs.
The cottage is an ideal base for cyclists and walkers being only 50 metres from the popular Monsal Trail. The trail runs along the former converted Midland Railway line between Bakewell to near Buxton making enjoyable walking and cycling options on the former railway line which enjoys lovely cafes and country pubs en route. Cycle hire is available from the Station at Hassop 1 mile away. As well as the trail, the village has numerous footpaths with walks through beautiful countryside and pretty villages that can be started from the doorstep.
As keen walkers ourselves we have provided, for our guests, maps and route descriptions of some of our favourite walks and cycle routes.
The area is also very popular for runners, climbers, cavers and mountain bikers as well as those wanting to visit the many traditional peak district villages and country houses.
Dogs are welcome in most pubs in the area, we provide details of these in our welcome pack. We are happy to accommodate up to 2 dogs.
