Overview

About the property

Lovely village setting close to Monsal Trail, Bakewell and Chatsworth

This attractive bungalow with a conservatory and pretty enclosed garden overlooks the cricket ground of the small picturesque village of Great Longstone, in the heart of the Peak District.

Great Longstone is just 3 miles from the bustling town of Bakewell, with it’s weekly Monday Market; 1 mile from the lovely village of Ashford in the Water and 10 minutes away from Chatsworth Estate. There are two pubs in the village within 2 minutes’ walk providing good food and a warm welcome. The village also has a small convenient shop and a dairy where you can get milk and eggs.

The cottage is an ideal base for cyclists and walkers being only 50 metres from the popular Monsal Trail. The trail runs along the former converted Midland Railway line between Bakewell to near Buxton making enjoyable walking and cycling options on the former railway line which enjoys lovely cafes and country pubs en route. Cycle hire is available from the Station at Hassop 1 mile away. As well as the trail, the village has numerous footpaths with walks through beautiful countryside and pretty villages that can be started from the doorstep.

As keen walkers ourselves we have provided, for our guests, maps and route descriptions of some of our favourite walks and cycle routes.

The area is also very popular for runners, climbers, cavers and mountain bikers as well as those wanting to visit the many traditional peak district villages and country houses.

Dogs are welcome in most pubs in the area, we provide details of these in our welcome pack. We are happy to accommodate up to 2 dogs.

The cottage can sleep 4 and comprises:

• Two Bedrooms (1 King Size bed, 2 Singles)

• Bathroom with shower (please note there is no bath)

• A fully equipped kitchen (with electric ovens and grill, gas hob, washing machine and microwave, there is no dishwasher)

• Lounge and dining area (TV, DVD, Wifi, Bluetooth speakers)

• Conservatory

• Small Garage/off road parking

Peaklands welcomed us and made us feel at home from the off. Very comfortable and well-equipped, with lots of attention to detail, and prompt response from a very nice landlady round the corner when needed. Great Longstone seems a happy place in a magnificent position, with two really good pubs and a remarkably well stocked shop. we'd like to come back in the cricket season so we can watch the game over the fence.

Great holiday in a fantastic cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ask for in a holiday.

The dogs loved the garden and surrounding country side and with 2 pubs with good and and ale just a stroll away they thought they had gone to heaven so much they did not appreciate coming home.

The owners saw to our every need when we needed it.

The peak district is delightful with loads of walks filled with interesting other places to visit, you never get bored.

The cottage itself was all we thought it would be, clean, beds very comfortable, bathroom great, garden a delight and the conservatory a pleasure to sit out in for us all with a view over the cricket ground you would die for

Overall a holiday we will remember for a long time, thank you Jane and Sara for letting us use your cottage.

Lovely comfortable bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Peaklands. We rebooked as it is very homely and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Off road parking is also a bonus. The owners have put alot of thought into the rental, and live close by should you need any assistance. Great Longstone is on the Monsal Trail if you enjoy walking, and the village is well situated to visit the places of interest in the National Park. Come rain or shine you should be satisfied if you stay here.
