Comfortable 3* accommodation in the unspoilt village of Taddington, set in the heart of the magnificent Derbyshire Dales, midway between the ancient market town of Bakewell and the famous spa town of Buxton.
The accommodation comprises: living room with exposed beams and log burning stove (logs provided); a bright kitchen and dining room; spacious hallway; one double bedroom with en suite bath/shower room. There is a peaceful private area outside with views over the fields.
All utilities are covered.
Interaction with Guests
Although the accommodation is in part of my house, it is self contained with its own entrances and no areas are shared.
This is a great location for walkers. There are footpaths to popular destinations such as Millers Dale, Monsal Dale (where cycles are available for hire to travel the converted Midland railway route),Cheedale and Lathkil Dale, as well as many other paths linking villages and ancient sites. A few minutes walk up the footpath by the cottage takes you to High Well where there are spectacular wide ranging views of the area.
For people who like to explore with a car, the cottage is a short drive to the stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall and is conveniently located for visits to Lyme Hall, Hardwick Hall, Calke Abbey and Kedleston Hall.
The village is bypassed by the A6 and the majority of traffic is local as well as agricultural as it is a working village.
Taddington has two public houses which serve locally brewed ales as well as bar snacks and meals.
Parking is off road in front of the accommodation.
Taddington is on the main Transpeak bus route between Manchester and Nottingham and the nearest train station is in Buxton which is 6 miles away.
Other Things to Note
There is no village store in Taddington and the closest Post Offices and shops are 4 miles away in Ashford and Tideswell.
No smoking inside please. I'm sorry but pets aren't allowed.
We had a lovely 3 night stay at Judith's cottage. It has a well equipped kitchen and a very cosy living area with ample wood/coal for the fire- which was lovely to have. Judith had kindly left some milk and eggs on the fridge which was a nice surprise when we got there. The location is perfect; it's a 15 minute drive to Bakewell and Buxton. Also there are many walks close by, including the Monsal trail. We'd definitely come and stay here again!
Had a wonderful time. Judith is lovely and very helpful. The flat is very cosy and well equipped and the village is full of footpaths and walking opportunities. I did not have a car and it was still easy for me. There's a bus to Buxton or Bakewell (and other points) if the need for more than a village emerges. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year stay at the cottage. Judith was very welcoming on our arrival and communicated well with us prior to our arrival...she even put Christmas decorations up especially for us! The cottage itself was absolutely perfect for what we wanted, a cosy long weekend getaway. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment, and the log burner in the sitting room is VERY efficient. The village of Taddington is nice & quiet and not far away from places such as Bakewell, Buxton or the Monsal Trail. I'd happily recommend staying at Judith's cottage to anyone.
We had a very enjoyable stay in Judith's cottage in the Peak District. It's a traditional cozy cottage well located between Buxton and Bakewell and close to the Monsal Trail, an excellent base for exploring the surrounding hills and river valley.
The cottage is located in a picturesque village very conveniently placed between Buxton and Bakewell. It was very cosy and very comfortable. Beautifully clean and well appointed. In fact it felt as if Judith, who was very welcoming and helpful had thought of every possible need and met it. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped! Thank you we had a very pleasant stay.
We had a great time in our cottage in Taddington. Excellent kitchen comfy bed and a thoughtful and helpful host. A great location for exploring Derbyshire. The cottage has bundled of character and is full of books on local walks and places to go. Strongly recommended.
House as per the profile. Well equipped and quite spacious downstairs. Lovely little garden, and fresh eggs from the hens. Area quiet and rural. Pub very close and populated by interesting locals. Didn't eat there, but good choice of local beers.
I'm from the village originally although I lived away for a number of years. The house is a conversion of the farm buildings opposite the farmhouse where I used to live. I work in the local library and occasionally at the museum.
