With spectacular walking and cycling on the doorstep, Rose Cottage offers the perfect base to explore the Peak District National Park whether by car, bike or on foot. We like to offer maximum flexibility to our guests on arrival and departure dates on both our holiday cottages in Derbyshire so it is best to give us a call to discuss your preferred holiday dates first.

Rose Cottage offers off road parking for 1 vehicle and secure garage storage e.g. for bikes. To the front of the cottage is a fully enclosed garden with stone bench seating ideal for enjoying the afternoon sun. To the rear of the cottage is a small garden (also fully enclosed) with paved patio area and outside furniture perfect for enjoying your breakfast alfresco or a meal or drink on a fine evening.
Well behaved dogs (2 max) are very welcome @ £25 per stay - downstairs only.
Please note due to the age of Rose Cottage, the staircase is quite narrow and steep.
