Granary Cottage is a stone built 18th century Peak District cottage. Recently renovated to a superb standard the cottage retains original features - oak beams and an exposed stone wall together with quality furnishings and super decoration to create a wonderful holiday retreat. Situated in the midst of picturesque Gt. Longstone it's just a short stroll to a choice of two local country pubs.
Many guests love to explore the lanes and trails around the village. But nearby Water- cum - Jolly Dale beckons with its peaceful riverside walk, the Monsal Trail is great for cycling, there is many a picnic to be had exploring Dovedale, while walking on the edge of the world on Calver Edge is our particular favourite.
Chatsworth is a must on everyone's 'to do' list but you might also fancy historic Haddon Hall, Peak Rail's steam trains and Castleton's Blue John Caverns. If you are not too tired at the end of the day what about a visit to Matlock Bath's illuminations, a show in Buxton's Opera House or just a meal in the White Lion or Crispin pubs in the village where you are assured of a great welcome. There is a well stocked local shop if you decide to relax and dine in.
A very attractive open plan lounge and dining area with comfortable suite, oak table and chairs, T.V., DVD, Freeview, WiFi. and log effect gas stove. A superb under floor heated kitchen with hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and automatic washer. A narrow spiral staircase leads to the bedrooms and shower room. A double bedroom with traditional cast iron bed. A smaller bedroom with three-quarter bottom and single top bunk. A lovely bathroom with bath/shower over and W.C.
Linen and towels are provided. Central heating, under floor heating, fuel and power are included. There is a sunny patio with furniture for alfresco dining, below a pretty garden. Ample parking is available on the quiet lane close to the cottage. There is a secure point to lock bikes. Pets and smoking in the cottage are not permitted. Access for people with disabilities may be difficult.

"We had a lovely stay at Granary Cottage. The cottage was well equipped, with everything you could need for a weekend away in the Peaks. There was fresh, local milk in the fridge when we arrived which was a lovely touch. The cottage was spotless and we loved sitting by the fire in the evening! We would definitely recommend Granary Cottage."

"We really enjoyed our Christmas stay here. The cottage is comfortable, homely, and really well-equipped for a short break; particularly the kitchen, making for an easy Christmas dinner prep! The Monsal trail is on the doorstep and the three nearby pubs were all great. The owner gave us some freshly picked sprouts for dinner and left us a bottle of fresh milk, and they had put up a Christmas tree and decorations which was a lovely touch. We would happily stay again and would not hesitate to recommend Granary Cottage."
