The Space

Scandinavian influenced beautiful character cottage perfect for exploring the Peak District. Hillside Cottage, is literallly located on a hillside, with stunning views. It is warm, bijoux and decorated with style.

Amidst the wild birds and butterflies in the sunny south facing garden watching the sun go down with a glass of wine, or curled up in front of the fire in the evening the cottage is a perfect retreat. In the winter you might get a beautiful frost or a scatter of snow. Whether you are active or just want peace and quiet the cottage is a gateway to both. This charming and relaxing cottage is fully equipped with boutique style interiors and restored character features in a countryside setting. It is surrounded by lush green hills with parading cows, and outdoors on your doorstep.

Short distance away from historical houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, chic boutiques and antique shops of Ashbourne. Also near to Bakewell with bakeries selling its famous Bakewell tart and Carsington Water for outdoor sports including sailing, canoeing, cycling and walking. Hills and famous edges of Peak District National Park are within easy reach.

The cottage offers easy access to the hills and outdoors, and also the delights of this quirky little market town with a blend of history and contemporary.

The cottage is spotlessly clean and offers all the mod cons in a peaceful setting with a tasteful decor and a sense of luxury.

  • Tiina's cottage is the perfect cosy winter retreat in a lovley village. Beatuifully decorated and spotlessly clean with all mod-cons. From sitting around the log burner reading to going up onto the nearby dark peaks, we had a fantastic week and would reccommend to anyone.
