About the property

Cottage in the grounds of Biggin Grange, Biggin-by-Hartington, Peak District

Biggin Grange is a private family home with 3 barn conversions in the grounds which have been sympathetically and very individually restored. The nearby village of Biggin has a pub and country house hotel and Hartington offers 2 village shops, pub, hotel, garage and traditional cheese shop. The Tissington trail is very close for walking and cycling and it is possible to walk over the owners land to Biggin Dale which leads to the River Dove. All 3 cottages can be booked together if wished to sleep 6 as Courtyard Creamery has a dining area which can accommodate all the guests.

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. The ensuite bathroom has a bath, electric shower, hand basin & loo. The cottage is heated by oil-fired central heating. Plenty of secure storage for bikes. The tennis court is available throughout the year. A central laundry room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing board and there is also a pay phone. Free Wi-Fi. All towels are provided. Barbeque.

Stunning views over Biggin Dale and walk straight from the cottage.

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.

Cosy cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our weekend stay here, it was very relaxing and a well needed break! Loved the company of the lambs outside and the donkey just down the path , they are very friendly. Cottage was very clean and we were provided with everything we needed. The bed was very comfy which is rare for a rental. Loved sitting on the sofa with the fire on in the evenings. Would definetly stay again.

Thank you!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay and see the Peak District. It has a really comfortable bed and lots of hot water after a long day out on the hills.

Fantastic pet sheep in the field at the back of Cheese Press Cottage. 'Boss Sheep' (Arthur) was very affectionate, we would have loved to take him home.

A genuine warm welcome with wonderful home baked chocolate brownies. We hope to stay with you again sometime.

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage has it all. Excellent facilities,character and charm with the most amazing views! If you can dine Al Fresco you will appreciate the outside space as we were lucky enough to do. Jane and Richard are excellent hosts and provided lots of useful local information, the chocolate brownies were delicious and a lovely touch. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: So pleased you had a great time. And that you enjoyed Eroica! I will try and find a local taxi driver for you next year so you don't have to drive. Hope to see you both in 2018!

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!
