About this listing
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.
No areas are shared.
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 Derby 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.
Please note, the bathroom is compact and has a sloping, beamed ceiling which some people may find awkward.
No smoking inside please. I'm sorry but pets aren't allowed.
About the Host, Judith
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.
