About the property

Sunnylea Cottage - a two bedroom, four guest property with open fire.

Sunnylea is a pretty limestone cottage, hidden away in a backwater, close to the centre of the typical 'White Peak' village of Great Longstone. Just four miles from the market town of Bakewell it is central to all the attractions of the Peak District.

Local villages have fetes and flower festivals during the summer, and you will never be far away from tea and cake! When you return to Sunnylea, you might simply relax in the sunny south-west facing garden, or in the winter months, in front of the open range. However, should you wish to eat out, the village has two pubs serving good food within a five minute walk. A 15 minute walk over the fields will take you to the Packhorse in Little Longstone, an unspoilt country pub, popular with walkers, which also serves good food.
