Edge Cottage is ideal if you do not want to miss a minute of the stunning surroundings of the Peak District National Park. The cottage enjoys incredible views of Curbar Gap and has beautiful walks virtually from the doorstep. Although there is ample space for up to six people to stay in two bedrooms, the unconventional layout means it is as welcoming for couples as it is for families, and all within walking distance of The Bridge Inn.
Curbar and nearby Calver are friendly villages with a variety of amenities including several excellent pubs, a village store that is well-stocked with local produce, and a charming tea room which is ideal for a fortifying slice of cake (or two) after an energetic walk or bike ride. The villages are built on the banks of the Derwent River, and the Derwent Valley Heritage Trail passes through along the way to Chatsworth House and the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
Curbar Edge, Froggatt Edge and Baslow Edge are all close by, providing visitors with an enormous choice of footpaths, mountain biking trails and bridleways. The Monsal Trail adjoins nearby Hassop Station and offers a relatively flat route through spectacular countryside, and if the weather is poor then head underground and discover the hidden world of Blue John Caverns. With so much to see you may find it difficult to fit everything in during your stay, which is just one reason your holiday at Edge Cottage will make you want to come back!
The town of Bakewell, which has the only regular market in the Peak District National Park, is just five miles away. It is a lovely, welcoming place with beautiful stone buildings housing an array of independent shops and a variety of places to eat and drink. No visit to the Peak District is truly complete without a trip to Chatsworth House, even if you only admire it from the road that sweeps through the impeccably maintained parkland towards the grand house which the Cavendish family have called home since 1549.
Favoured by well-to-do Georgians and Victorians for the health-giving quality of its waters, Buxton is still an impressive town with grand buildings that echo its importance. Haddon Hall, Castletown, Edale and Hathersage are all other excellent places to explore.
Just because you love being outside does not mean you want to stay somewhere anywhere less than amazing. At Edge Cottage, there is no need to compromise.
