Lismore is a very attractive cottage with super decoration, quality furnishings, sunny conservatory and lovely gardens. Set on a quiet road on the edge of picturesque Great Longstone village it has lovely views of Longstone Moor rising above the roof tops on the far side of the village green. On summer afternoons you can watch the local cricket team in action from the comfort of the back garden!
Great Longstone is a superb village with its local shop and two pubs - the traditional Crispin Inn and the White Lion which is a gastro pub with a good reputation for its locally sourced food. Bakewell with its lively Monday market has to be seen and magnificent Chatsworth is another must for your travels. Our own personal favorite is the lovely and romantic Haddon Hall, a popular film location for historical dramas.
Even better, you don't need to use your car to go on wonderful walks right from the doorstep including the Monsal Trail whose most spectacular sight, Monsal Dale is just a mile from the cottage. You can even hire bikes to explore the valleys and tunnels along the trail. If you are feeling even more energetic climb to the top of Longstone Edge and admire the fantastic views.
An attractive lounge with luxurious sofas, coal effect gas fire, flat screen T.V, DVD and Wi Fi. An adjoining dining area with birch table and chairs. A sunny conservatory with furniture. A well fitted kitchen with quality units, cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. A utility room with large freezer, automatic washer and tumble dryer. A lovely double bedroom with super king bed .

"Lismore has been a great base from which to renew our acquaintance with the Peak District. The bungalow had everything we needed and is wonderfully comfortable and attractive. We loved the conservatory and have had our breakfasts and evening meal out there most days. Have had good meals at both the Crispin and the White Lion. Also did a super walk up on Longstone Edge."

"We had a lovely time in this beautiful cottage over Christmas and New Year. The cottage is comfortable, cosy, well equipped, well maintained and very, very quiet. The position in Great Longstone is excellent for exploring all areas of the Peak District. We have stayed in many different cottages in the Peak District over the years and Lismore compares very favourably with all of them-even those with 5 star rating. We hope to be able to come back one day."
