Boutique Cottage Accommodation in the Peak District
The superb Heather Cottage is self-catering taken to new heights. The cottage has been lovingly rebuilt from the roof down in a project taking us just short of two years. The cottage can now offer you a luxurious and intimate retreat where you can relax under the stars in the spacious Canadian hot tub; watch the world go by from the window of the beautifully furnished oak bedroom with its huge hand made four poster; and stretch out on the squashy leather sofa in the sitting room warmed by the restful flames of the fire bowl.
The cottage has recently been graded 5 star by the AA
Although ideal as a romantic hideaway for couples wishing to indulge in some well-earned peace and quiet, Heather Cottage also boasts a second sitting room (The Snug) which can easily be turned into an additional en-suite bedroom; so if you want to go away with your best friend you can have an en-suite bedroom each!
Luxurious Bedroom and En-Suite Bathroom
With stunning views of Kirk Ireton village and the surrounding Derbyshire countryside, the master bedroom is a stylish and comfortable sanctuary in which to relax. The beautiful solid oak floor is complemented by the gorgeous, huge hand made bed and the oak beams above. It’s no wonder that the scent of wood and beeswax in here is so delicious!
The stunning stone fireplace, this room’s centrepiece, is just one of Heather Cottage’s original features that have been lovingly restored. A warm and sunny room, the living room has elegant French windows to the back and a large, deep-seated window overlooking the village to the front.
Kitchen & Dining
The traditional and the modern blend effortlessly in this convenient and well thought out kitchen; it’s equipped with oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and plenty of elegant crockery, cutlery and utensils. There’s even a little TV in here in case you fancy catching up with news of the outside world while you eat a leisurely lunch!
Hot Tub & Garden
The beautiful, open and sunny front garden with its low stone wall, lovely plants and immaculate lawn commands excellent views of the old stone-built village of Kirk Ireton; the famous 18th century ‘Barley Mow’ pub and village shop are just twenty yards away down the hill. Sit on the garden bench with a gin and tonic and enjoy watching the world go by.
