Curlew Cottage is a super little cottage lovingly created out of a mellow stone barn. Indulge yourselves in somewhere just a little bit different! The cottage's quality interior sets it apart and is reflected in its recent Visit England Gold Award. Luxurious fittings highlight the owners' attention to detail. But it's the lovely setting in Windmill, a sleepy little hamlet under the dramatic Hucklow Edge, which really makes it special.

This is the world famous landscape of the Peak District National Park. Climb to the top of the Edge, have a pint in the Barrel Inn and gasp in wonder at the incredible views. Explore the local lanes and perhaps find the intriguing 'plague' village of Eyam.

In the very heart of the Peak District, with all Derbyshire's attractions like Chatsworth, Bakewell and Buxton nearby, there are few better places for your holiday. Wherever you go each day, get back in time for a super meal in the Queen Ann pub just five minutes walk to Gt. Hucklow before wandering back to the cottage, for the last glass of wine on the patio, gazing at the night sky brimming over with stars.

Cottage facilities:

A spacious lounge with glowing log burning stove, beamed ceiling, super lighting, luxurious suite, dining table, flat screen T.V. , DVD., Freeview and Wi Fi. A lovely kitchen with quality fitted units, hob, oven, microwave, fridge and automatic washer. A super double bedroom with French cast iron bed and T.V. A beautifully fitted bathroom with French cast iron bath, separate shower and W.C.

Linen and towels are provided. Storage heating, power and an initial supply of fuel for the stove are included (£15 fuel charge Oct-Mar). There is a gravelled patio with furniture. Parking for one car is available on the patio and there are lots of other spaces on the very quiet lane immediately outside. A small pet is allowed by arrangement. Smoking is not permitted. Access for people with disabilities may be difficult.

Weekly bookings are normally Saturday to Saturday but short breaks are available throughout the year.

Perfect location close to amazing hiking trails and views. Pubs close by with great food, some only open Thursday to Sunday. No garden to sit outside, unless you park car on street. Enjoyed week stay very much.

Mr T,

Absolutely loved our second stay. Again, there was everything we needed and it was exceptionally clean and well equipped. We did lots of walking straight from the door despite the rain! A bonus was the newly opened Blind Bull in Little Hucklow which we walked to in 15/20 minutes, beautiful views and great local ale. Thanks again Russell and Abi, nice to see you again.

Previous Customer,

A spacious, well presented property with a rustic charm. Every thing worked as it should and was clean throughout making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location is fairly central making access to most of the key Peak District locations and attractions easy. The property owners were excellent hosts and very helpful with information and support. We would revisit in the future.

Mr F,

This is our third stay in your lovely cottage. It’s ideally situated for exploring the Derbyshire Dales and the High Peaks. We’ve seen lots of Red Grouse, Deer, Kestrels, but sadly no mountain hates this time. We’ve enjoyed coming back to the cosy cottage in the evenings- everything you need to cook your own meal but lots of pubs nearby to choose from as well.We enjoyed an excellent meal at the Barrel Inn, Bretton. Hope to be back later in the year. Happy New Year

Barry & K,

Cosy stay over Christmas. Thank you so much for the welcome gifts. We have enjoyed walking around the area, lots to explore. Would highly recommend the Red Lion in Litton for its excellent food and the Star in Tideswell for its welcome

Jayne & S,

Fantastic Cottage. Snug and cosy with everything we needed. Abi and Russ are wonderful hosts- from our warm welcome to saying goodbye they’ve been brilliant. In the area Curlew cottage makes the perfect base. The cottage is very well equipped and has everything we wanted. We loved the log burner and the very comfy bed. We will be recommending it to everyone and hope to be back

Martin & M,

This was our first visit to the Peak District, and what a treat! Curlew Cottage is a special little place. It is so well equipped and comfortable, a real, “home from home” It is so well positioned for the many local walks from the door and interesting walks nearby to places like Eyam Edge, Win Hill, Lose Hill and many others. We really enjoyed visiting Chatsworth House, Bakewell and Buxton. There are too many lovely places to eat but the Queen Anne pub is within easy walking distance for nice pub food. The Merchants Yard in Tideswell is great for Sunday lunch. Too much to see, so we will just have to come back! Thank you

Sally and G,

Thank you once again Abi & Russell for our lovely welcome to your, “little gem” of a cottage. So warm and comfy. We have all enjoyed the week with plenty of good walks in this beautiful area with spectacular scenery. Walking to High Rake up the quiet road is a particularly favourite. Already planning our next visit and look forward to seeing you soon.
