About Badger Cottage

Badger Cottage sleeps six guests and is a true haven of peace and tranquility - a place to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life.

As you drive to Cressbrook through the beautiful river valley, the peace and tranquility is immediately apparent. A picturesque conservation village perched on the hillside, Cressbrook is in a lovely position overlooking Monsal Dale and is close to the popular Derbyshire village of Bakewell in the Peak District National Park.

This cosy 18th Century Grade II listed cottage provides a home from home and occupies an idyllic setting leading out into National Park country with a plethora of footpaths tracks and trails to explore through sheltered wooded valleys, beautiful waterfalls and magnificent hills, rich in both wildlife and archaeological finds.

Most guests who stay comment on how idyllic the position is with the added bonus of it being exceptionally central for visiting the many attractions of the National Park including castles, historic houses, gardens, caverns and endless opportunities for outdoor activities. The popular market towns of Bakewell and Buxton (each with their own individual charm) and Chatsworth House are all a short drive away and a little further beyond is Alton Towers and many other popular attractions.

Closer to home, ‘The Cressbrook’ pub provides a warm welcome and is just a short stroll across the road. The surrounding area also offers a good choice of country restaurants and traditional inns where you can sample wonderful local produce.

An ideal choice for walkers, climbers and cyclists, Badger Cottage is close to the Monsal Trail, Ravens Tor and Water Cum Jolly. It is ideal for a family holiday and also for couples looking for a romantic break. With log burner and full central heating for the colder months and sunny gardens with patio furniture for when it is warmer, Badger Cottage is an idyllic retreat at any time of the year - a place where you immerse yourself in a peaceful setting with spectacular country views.
