Pre Christmas chill

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to come to come and relax. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Lovely touches- tea & biscuits waiting for us on arrival, the fire set, a Christmas tree put up & decorated. Beautiful walking country on the door step. Great Sunday lunch at the Royal Oak. A great stay. Good value for money.

Hartington village cottage - very well situatuated, equipped, comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for our long weekend (or longer). We arrived to find a generous welcome pack of supplies. Although we ate out at various pubs the kitchen is well equipped and was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the house. The living room furniture is comfortable and the log burner (with a plentiful supply in the outhouse) soon warmed the room. That said, the central heating worked well.

If you arrive and wonder where to hang coats you will soon find hooks through the door onto the staircase. The front bedroom is very spacious and there is ample cupboard space.

The village shops are nearby, the closest being yards away from the front gate. The staff are friendly and newspapers are stocked. We had a meal at the friendly Devonshire Arms which can be recommended, being a very short walk away.

There is a choice of varied walks from the village but Dovedale and other popular places are easily reached by car.
