Overview

About the property

Dove Cottage is an above average sized two person pet-free non-smoking cottage, graded by the country’s official grading organisation, Visit England, in the top half of four star, and year after year for ten consecutive years given an almost unheard of 100% for standards of housekeeping in the grading process. The cottage has a modern tasteful ambience but plenty of charachter features. The living room has a log effect stove with leather settees and a leather armchair plus a TV and DVD player. The TV receives full sky programmes, so including sky sports and films channels. There is also wifi. There is fully controllable central heating throughout. The bedroom has an extra thick mattress (and second television) and the bathroom with full sized bath –with shower over – is en-suite to the bedroom. The cottage has a full sized bathroom with shower over the bath. The kitchen has imposing real granite sinks, gloss worktops, There are top of the range laminated floors of the highest quality throughout (where not carpeted).

Hartington itself is one of the honey-pot villages in the Peak District, being regarded as an excellent base for walking and cycling. This is helped by its location only a couple of hundred yards from the River Dove, which can easily be reached from the village over an attractive meadow and from there, there is an excellent riverside path down to Dovedale. As a result the village is able to support, despite only having 130 houses, several tea shops, two (excellent) coaching inns, a delicatessen, a grocers, two gift shops, a post office an art studio an antiques shop and famous cheese shop to which many make a point of travelling from miles around. There is also a duck pond which acts as a magnet to many visitors.

The village is approached down a gorgeous but easily driven 2 mile long dale road from one of the Peak District's main artery roads, making it extraordinarily easy to get around to visit the numerous attractions in the Peak District.

The cottage is centrally located in a private courtyard consisting of three cottages, and is therefore able to offer peace and quiet despite the village getting at times during the main tourist season or at weekends fairly busy. In the courtyard there is a barbecue and laundry room and provision for off-road parking of cars. There is some limited outdoor seating area with flower borders On the other side of the courtyard is a Sky sports room, shared with the two other cottages, but little used due to all cottages having their own Sky programmes in their own cottages, so sole use of this room is almost certain.

Visitors to this entry on this web site might notice there are only two reviews on this cottage, the reason being simply that whilst we have been taking direct bookings for the last 14 years for this cottage, we have only started listing this cottage on this site in the middle of this year. We do have thirteen reviews on Tripadvisors' web site where we have advertised for a few years with which we feel that visitors will be impressed, all having given us 'five stars'. However can we stress that you do not get graded in the top half of four star by the official grading organisation, EnjoyEngland without having high standards.

Guests will see when proceeding to the booking page, that one of the fees included in the quote is called the base charge; this is because otherwise quotes for short breaks work out wrongly as this site's computer assumes that a two night mid week break is one half of a four night break (which it very rarely is). By putting in a base charge and then reducing the nightly (and weekly) charge the computer generated figure becomes correct whether booking for two, three or four nights.

Please note that the computer generated quote is usually (but not always) too low for those looking for a short break that includes only one night of either friday or saturday (it is correct if the short break request includes both a friday and a saturday night). If this situation applies, please simply complete the enquiry section to the right of this page or the 'Contact the Owner' bit (depending on which page you are on), rather proceeding with the ‘Request to Book' section , or 'proceed to booking’ section and the owners will send out a quote with the correct figure.

About Patrick Skemp

We first started running holiday cottages 22 years ago the cottages being located about a mile away from Hartington so we like to think we are pretty good at meeting guests expectations. Most weeks one or other set of our guests will comment (in addition to making favourable comments on the cottage) about our professional approach, which is after all driven by our determination to ensure that guests thoroughly enjoy both their stay in our various cottages and in the Peak District. In the name (of course) of market research, we visit the numerous inns, restaurants, chippies etc, (there are about 30 of these within 7 miles alone, plus various tea rooms) and are able to pass on our knowledge if requested to our guests.

Well kept convienient place in the middle of Hartington

  • 4 of 5

The Cotton pub was an experience !!!! Service was haphazard. The food was cooked just right & a good variety of draught beers. Beware of he noisy dining room. Remember the chippy is there Friday nights and that's okay as well.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review; i hope you don't mind me saying it's actually more of a review on the Charles Cotton Hotel than on our cottage. Perhaps for the benefit of those reading your review and this response, well for those for whom quality of service is important, then even closer than the Charles Cotton Hotel 80 yards ago is the Duke of Devonshire Inn, and there the service is truly excellent. The landlord has been there for several decades, our guests have been going there for two decades (some of them five times or more a week) and not once has anyone criticised the service there, many praising the friendliness of the landlord and his staff

There is almost certainly more to do within 30 minutes drive of Hartington than anywhere in the UK, stately homes, market towns, attractive villages, the National Stone Centre (!) the absolutely superb National Tramway Museum, 8 heritage railways, the list is endless, hence there being 11 really well organised information folders in the cottage. But primarily we are of course in the heart of the White Peak Area of the Peak District (the area of rolling hills, valleys, dry stone walls and limestone villages, for which the Peak District is so well known - the Dark Peak is mainly uninhabited moorland), so absolutely superb for scenic driving, walking, hiking or cycling.

We are also within 3 miles of three former railway tracks, now cycle paths and walkways, of average 15 miles in length and there is a truly extensive network of quite lanes superb for cycling along, with Sustran Cycle Route 54 passing the cottage. The possibilies for walking are literally unlimited as almost every other field in this area has a footpath passing through but more specifically in the village there is a lovely walk starting, passing over a meadow before reaching after a few hundred yards the River Dove at Beresford Dale. Just down river, along an excellent solid river side path are other stretches of the River Dove known as Wolfscote Dale and then the most famous outside attraction of the who Peak District, namely Dovedale.
