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. 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.
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.
Short breaks are available from November to March excluding Xmas & New Year.
Nearest pub - Gt. Hucklow 0.4 miles. Nearest village shop - Tideswell 2 miles. Nearest supermarket - Buxton 5 miles.
"Thank you Russell and Abi for a lovely week we went for some lovely walks and up to the Barrell at Breton. We visited Castleton and the Dams at Derwent. The cottage is well situated for everything especially the Queen Anne pub.....the cottage is well equipped and is really cosy and you can see that a lot of work has been put in to it. It is one of the best cottages we have stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few. We would come back again."

"A great little cottage, spacious lounge with character and wood burner, well equipped kitchen leading off the lounge. Upstairs leads to a bathroom with roll top bath and shower, a spacious bedroom leads off the landing too. Great area for walking at all levels of difficulty with Curlew Cottage central, Monsal Trail, Mam Tor & Lady Bower reservoir all local, Bakewell & Chatsworth not far away. Bretton Barrel provides good food as does pub at Monsal Head. Owners are lovely friendly people who are always available if required but not intrusive."
