The Coach House - Monyash, Nr Bakewell, Derbyshire, The Peak District, England - Sleeps 4
Formerly a coach house, this charming stone holiday cottage sleeps four guests and will captivate guests with its stunning position sitting up above the mere in Monyash, a pretty Derbyshire village. This welcoming cottage provides an ideal rural retreat to relax and unwind and is close to the popular town of Bakewell in the heart of the Peak District National Park. It has been awarded Four Star (Visit Britain) as well as being accredited for walkers and cyclists. There are many personal touches, such as house plants, games and books. The cottage has its own large lawn and patio area for alfresco dining with outdoor furniture and BBQ. There is free Wi-Fi access, secure bike storage (lockable), boots, golf clubs, etc.
Just a short stroll from the cottage is the village green where you will find the Bull's Head Inn and The Old Smithy cafe where you can have a meal out. The local area also has a good number of traditional pubs (within a four mile radius) which all serve food and have open fires to relax in front of.
Monyash is a picturesque village in the Peak District in Britain's first National Park. It was once a market village and the old market cross still stands on the green. Lathkill Dale commences on the eastern edge of Monyash and all other Derbyshire Dales are within a few miles. There is a superb children's playground. The roads are wide so that, even at popular times, the village is never congested.
The beautiful unspoilt town of Bakewell is just over four miles away and is of course famous for its tarts, puddings and pies! It is a market town, situated on the River Wye which offers a superb selection of independent food shops, restaurants, pubs and small specialists shops guaranteeing exciting shopping.
For those who enjoy walking, The Limestone Way walking trail goes straight through the village and Dovedale and the other Derbyshire Dales and walking trails are all within a few miles and just waiting to be explored. The Tissington and High Peak cycle trails pass a mile from the cottage. Everyone will love the splendour of this beautiful area and there are stunning views all around the Peak District for those who want to simply relax.
The area offers an abundance of attractions and activities to enjoy. For those who like wandering around country houses, Haddon Hall and spectacular Chatsworth are both fifteen minutes by car. Crich Tramway Museum and the award winning Heights of Abraham are also within easy reach. Alton Towers, the UK's premier theme park, and Jodrell Bank, the country's number one observatory, are both less than a hour away by car. Buxton Spa has a superb Georgian crescent, free-flowing spring water and the opulent Opera House. The Peak District has many caves to be explored on guided tours.
Derbyshire is the only UK county that displays spectacular Wells Dressings. Large, clay boards are decorated with thousands of tiny petals, pebbles, etc, and displayed for a week beside wells. This takes place from the middle of May to early September and Monyash displays theirs from the last Saturday in May.
