Two luxury cottages converted from an historic barn on an equine farm, at 1500ft on a high ridge with stunning views over Manifold and Dove Valleys. Both cottages have underfloor heating downstairs as well as in the bathrooms.

Each cottage sleeps 4 with a master bedroom with en-suite and a second bedroom with twin beds plus a separate bathroom. Downstairs there is a large lounge/dining room with leather sofas, TV/DVD and CD player. There is a fully equipped modern kitchen with oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and granite worktops, plus a separate drying room with a washer/dryer.

Outside, the two cottages share an enclosed patio and are surrounded by open fields and protected moorland which are a breeding ground for rare birds. Curlew and Snipe are two of our regular summer visiters but also there are Lapwings, Buzzards, Owls and Skylarks to be seen.There is a car park adjacent to the cottages for 4 cars and a barn for Bikes and Motor bikes.

Our prices are all inclusive of heating and electricity and a welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine. Dogs are welcome at no extra charge.
