Dormy , Foolow

A charming cottage beautifully restored in the little village of Foolow with its lovely duck pond and local pub.

Sleeps: 3 (2 bedrooms) | Change over day: Saturday


  
Dormy Cottage is a charming 18-century cottage carefully restored, beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished to create a splendid holiday retreat. Its comfortable lounge, hand crafted kitchen, attractive bedrooms and lovely bathroom make her a super cottage to return to after a hard day's holidaying in the Peak District.

The perfection of the cottage is only matched by its location in the sleepy little village of Foolow snuggled up under the dramatic Hucklow Edge. This is a near perfect village gathered around the duck pond with its six white ducks, with the traditional Bulls Head pub renowned for its hearty meals and surrounded by lovely countryside that stretches as far as the eye can see.

There are few more peaceful spots yet there is also a vast array of visitor attractions within easy reach. Castleton's caverns, Chapel's wildlife sanctuary, the Derwent Valley Dams and wild Winnots Pass are all nearby. You might also fancy riding Peak Rail's steam trains or a tram at the National Tramway Museum between visits to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell' famous market and Buxton' Victorian Crescent. Save an evening to visit the Barrel Inn at Bretton, high up on the Edge, and watch the sun set over the cottage.

"I stayed in this cottage with my husband and two dogs, it is in a very picturesque village with a great pub. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen with a small table, the sitting room is comfortable and there are two bedrooms one double and one single. There was a welcome pack of milk and biscuits on arrival and there was coffee and tea in the cupboard. There are some lovely walks from the cottage, if you walk to Bretton you can enjoy a great food experience at the Barrel Inn, most definitely worth the walk."

"We’ve had a wonderful time over the past few days staying in this cottage and it’s beautiful surroundings! The cottage itself was warm and welcoming. Nearby Eyam proved a treat, and we managed to see some spectacular caverns up in Castleton! Always a pleasure to visit Derbyshire."

"Our annual December return to the Peak District brought us to this lovely warm cottage -just where we wanted to be; 34 paces from our favourite pub. It was a weekend of exceptionally strong winds so we restricted our walk to Cressbrook Dale. Comments about the cottage: fabulous! beds comfy, kitchen super! Bath perfect!"
