All on one level the very cosy cottage is entered through the private south-facing patio and garden into an open-plan kitchen/sitting room with a flagstone floor, rugs and exposed beams. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave and fridge/freezer. There is a wood-burning stove and a basket of logs, coal and kindling is included. TV, DVD player and a Wireless Bluetooth speaker. The bedroom has an antique double-size bed with goose-down duvet and 100% cotton linen.

About Jane Henry

Biggin Grange is owned by Richard & Jane Henry and we moved up to Derbyshire in 1993 from London. We bought Biggin Grange is 2000 and have extensively restored the house, outbuildings and farm. It is a fabulous home to bring up our 3 children and we are surrounded by over 100 acres of fields. Our black labrador, Otto, together with ponies, a donkey called Guinness, chickens and ducks have plenty of space to amuse themselves. The property is steeped in history as the Garendon Abbey in Leicestershire owned the Grange and it dates back to 1209. It is Grade II listed and there are many significant archaeological features on the property. We rent the land out to a neighbouring farmer who has beef cattle and sheep over the fields. We adore this stunning area and hope you do too!

Jane Henry purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Jane Henry chose Derbyshire Dales

Biggin Grange is a perfect place to visit as it is surrounded by acres of land with amazing views so you really get a feeling of being away from it all. But at the same time it is really convenient being close to Ashbourne and the nearby villages of Biggin and Hartington. London is only 1 hr 30 mins away on the train from Derby and Manchester is 1 hr drive away.

Living within the Peak District National Park is incredibly special and it is only when we have been away do we fully appreciate the unspoilt beauty of Derbyshire.

Amazing views and a cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Really nice location, views were amazing. Nice little cottage, with everything you could need for a short break away in the peaks. Not too far from trails and tourist places. Welcoming and friendly owners. Hopefully make another visit soon!

Lovely little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cheese Press Cottage was fantastic. When we arrived the owners were very welcoming and accommodating towards us; once we had been shown to the cottage and everything explained our privacy was very well respected. The cottage was great and came with most modern conveniences including wifi. Located on a farm, surrounded by scenic views of the Peak District, its an ideal location for a quiet getaway or as a start/finish point for exploring the area but is close enough to local towns you don't feel isolated. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely stay again myself.

Excellent cottage in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable and well-appointed cottage with all that one/two people need for a relaxing stay in this beautiful area. The views are lovely and there are plenty of walks and places to see nearby. Jane and her husband were very welcoming and always quick to answer any query. I hope to come back again and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a very pleasant home base for a stay in the Peaks.

Beautiful scenery and atmosphere! Such a Cosy little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner had a fantastic stay in cheese press cottage for our anniversary weekend! We arrived on the Friday afternoon to find the cottage absolutely spotless yet so cosy with a log fire place in the main room, Jane had left homemade brownies for our arrival too which were delicious! The only thing we couldn't find was a corkscrew, however other than that everything else we could have needed or wanted was supplied. The views are truly amazing, you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere because of how peaceful it is when actually you're only 20 minutes away from Buxton and other large towns, would book again in a heartbeat! Thank you for a lovely weekend Jane!

Beautiful cottages set in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage appeared just as shown in the photographs, very homely and welcoming. So peaceful and quite with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Great location, with the local pub just a short stroll over the fields ! Harrington just over 2 miles away, and plenty of other walks to explore the local area. We would thoroughly recommend and look forward to another stay in the near future
