Brookside Retreat sleeps two guests and sits in the sleepy Derbyshire village of Two Dales on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Ideally located a short distance from the popular towns of Matlock and Bakewell, the village is surrounded by woodland and rolling hills and has a great local butchers, traditional village inn for eating out and shops including a convenience store for stocking up on provisions. The Plough Inn is within walking distance, as is Barrington's Pub and Restaurant - no need to cook on holiday if you do not wish!
With a king-size bedroom and bathroom with shower cubicle and bath on the first floor, plus spacious living areas on the ground floor, the cottage is ideal for couples at any time of the year with plenty of space to relax and unwind.
Two Dales is a haven for wildlife and an excellent holiday choice for outdoor enthusiasts. For walkers, you will struggle to find a better location with spectacular walks from the cottage, along with direct access out onto the open moorland of the Peak District National Park from not far outside the village. There are also miles of trails and country lanes for cyclists to explore in the area, as well as plenty of great days out for the less active including Buxton and Bakewell - famous for its pudding, along with popular Chatsworth Stately Home and Haddon Hall.
The Peak District is home to some of the UK's most beautiful countryside and spans some five hundred square miles across several counties. Attracting holiday makers from all over the world, it is famed for its exquisite natural beauty and diverse landscape of dramatic peaks, rolling dales and picture post-card villages.
