Morley Cottage - Hathersage, Hope Valley, Derbyshire, The Peak District, England - Sleeps 2

Morley Cottage

Morley Cottage is a cosy pet-free retreat just for two ideally located in the bustling village of Hathersage is the Peak District National Park.

Sitting in the heart of the village, the south-facing cottage is nicely placed away from the main road that runs through the village and has a good choice of pubs and shops within walking distance as well as an open air swimming pool during the summer months and railway station. It sits within the grounds of the owner's house and is available to rent all year round (two night minimum short breaks are offered out of peak season).

Hathersage nestles amongst the Hope Valley at the eastern end and is steeped in history with its connections to Charlotte Bronte who gained her inspiration for 'Jane Eyre' in the village, and Robin Hood with the church reported to be Little Johns burial place.

The village is a popular holiday destination with outdoor enthusiasts offering excellent opportunities for walkers, pot holers, climbers, cyclists, fishing enthusiasts and bird watchers. Easy access can be gained from the village onto the moors for a days hiking, as well as onto Stanage Edge. Possibly the area's most impressive gritstone edge, Stanage spans some three and a half miles in length, attracting climbers from far and wide.

The surrounding area and Peak District offer a host of attractions. Castleton is a staggeringly pretty village just four miles away with its famous caverns and castle ruins keeping a watchful eye over the village. Peveril Castle is also close by, and Chatsworth House is within easy reach by car. Haddon Hall, The Heights of Abraham, the village of Tideswell, the market town of Bakewell and Buxton also make great days out.
