Hideaway Cottage is an attractive cottage hidden away on a quiet lane on the lovely wooded hillside of the Derwent Valley. The cottage has very comfortable, quality accommodation but it's the incredible walks and fantastic views, right from the cottage door, that you will remember forever. It's just an idyllic little place.
Sit on the cottage balcony above the fishpond and share your breakfast with the myriad of wild birds. Explore the lovely, mature garden that tumbles down the hillside. Wander off along the numerous woodland walks or onto open moorland before calling at the Devonshire Arms in Beeley or the Grouse and Claret in Rowsley for a scrumptious lunch. Save a few afternoons for exploring the numerous local attractions.
There are many interesting and exciting places to visit literally within a few minutes drive. Caudwell Mill's craft centre, the Red House carriage museum and Peak Rail's steam trains are down in the valley. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are not to be missed. Bakewell with its famous 'puddings' and Monday market is another must. Get back in time for a glass of wine on the patio as you gaze in wonder at the magnificent sunset over the Peak District hills.
An attractive little lounge with leather suite, flat screen T.V. and DVD. . An external balcony with furniture and fantastic views across the valley. An adjoining dining kitchen with table and chairs, quality units, ceramic hob, oven, microwave and fridge. A utility room with freezer, automatic washer and tumble dryer. A pretty double bedroom.

"The Hideaway has been the perfect base from which to explore some of the many pathways that traverse the stunning landscape. Very clean and comfortable, it has been a haven from which to enjoy the wonderful views from the cottage window and to watch the antics of the visitors to the bird table, woodpeckers and jays to name just a few. Thank you for all the extras, milk, wine and eggs and all the homely touches about the place. Best wishes."
