  • 300 year-old cottage full of chocolate box charm

  • Enjoying beautiful rural views up to Curbar Edge with stunning walks right on your doorstep
Property code: PK939

This 300-year-old stone cottage offers the perfect blend of period charm and contemporary conveniences in an unbeatable village location with a walled courtyard perfect for summer evenings.

Dating back some 300 years, this charmingly picturesque 18th-century cottage makes a spacious and comfortable holiday base for up to eight guests exploring this beautiful part of the Peak District. Providing cosy and quiet self-catering accommodation, this pretty retreat is an ideal haven for a larger family or a group of friends exploring the southern and eastern parts of this stunning national park. The cottage is situated in the quaint and relaxing Derbyshire village of Calver, perfect for eager walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers, with miles of walks through the Derwent Valley. Just 5 miles away is the idyllic and thriving market town of Bakewell on the banks of the River Wye.

Situated along a quiet village lane, and entered through an iron front fence set in a stone wall, this beautifully updated property retains some original features including flagstone flooring in the kitchen, exposed beams and a wood burner set in a large fireplace in the pretty lounge. The lounge is an ideal space to relax in, with plenty of comfortable seating and a TV so you can snuggle up and enjoy a favourite movie at the end of a great day out. The bright and fully equipped country-style kitchen is a pleasure to cook in and is fitted with a Rayburn range oven. You can enjoy your favourite meals in the fresh and sociable dining room which features an original decorative fireplace with a traditional gritstone surround. Exploring the ground floor further, you will find the first of the cottage’s four cosy and inviting bedrooms: a twin room which is accessed via a couple of steps and has easy access to the ground-floor shower room. Heading upstairs, there are three further bedrooms to choose from on the first floor, all decorated in light, soothing tones. The master bedroom has a super-king-size bed and an en-suite shower room, the twin room has tranquil views across the countryside, and the double room looks out over Curbar Gap. There’s also a first-floor family bathroom. Stepping outside from the kitchen, you can unwind in the small, private, walled courtyard which makes a lovely suntrap and is ideal for sitting back with a glass of wine in the evening or enjoying a BBQ.

Such a lovely cottage and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was clean, well equipped and bigger than we expected from the photos. Great location, lots of walks right from the door step, plenty of dog friendly pubs in walking distance. The local Spar has a great selection of local produce and the Toll Bar fish and chip shop, 5 minutes Read moredrive, excellent! The views from Curbar Edge are stunning and worth the hike up the hill, the river walk less strenuous but beautiful. Thank you!! Hide

This cottage was perfect for our family party of 7 adults and 1 toddler. The downstairs rooms are large and comfortable and the bedrooms are delightful. Everything was clean and welcoming when we arrived and we quickly felt at home. There is no passing traffic outside and it is very quiet at night. The village is lovely and everyone we met was frieRead morendly. It's very well situated for walking and sightseeing with Chatsworth just 2 miles away. Five stars all round. Hide

Very spacious and attractive cottage, tastefully decorated and modernised, but retaining its olde-world character. It is in an ideal location, near to the centre of Calver village and well-placed for visiting other places in the Peak District such as Bakewell and Chatsworth.
