Hillside Croft sleeps up to fourteen guests and is a fantastic large luxury holiday cottage which nestles quietly amidst six acres of grounds with beautiful gardens as well as pasture land (plus a hot tub for the ultimate in relaxation!). This holiday cottage sits on the outskirts of the Peak District National Park just over a mile from Carsington Water - a large reservoir offering excellent water sports and visitors centre.
Nestling within the Derbyshire Dales, this central location makes it ideal for enjoying the many attractions of not only Derbyshire but also Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire - perfect for large groups of friend, families, celebrations and hen parties.
This delightful holiday cottage dates back as far as 1709 and it is listed of Grade II historic interest. Full of character, stone mullion windows with leaded lights, old oak beams, stone walls with timbers and inglenook's for cosy log fires all add to the beauty and charm of this five star retreat.
It is situated in a lovely tranquil position where you will see pheasants wandering through the grounds, along with rabbits, squirrels and plenty of wild birds - the countryside is on your very doorstep just waiting to be explored!
Derbyshire is a county that offers something for everyone, whatever the weather and guests are welcome to enjoy a break or longer holiday at Hillside Croft at any time of the year. The area offers plenty of interesting places to visit for great days out. Why not visit the impressive choice of historic and National Trust houses and gardens in the area, such as popular Chatsworth House or simply take in the spectacular and varied scenery on foot, bike or by horse back. You will also be able to enjoy golf, climbing, kayaking and fishing or for the younger ones seeking excitement, the thrill of theme parks such as Alton Towers. Alternatively simply sit back and relax in luxurious and beautiful surroundings whilst enjoying good food and company with friends or family.
