The Potting Shed is in an ideal location for exploring, by foot, bike or car, the beautiful Peak District. There are hundreds of rental cottages in Derbyshire but few can boast the panoramic views that can be seen from the Potting Shed. This is a feature that guests love as well as the watching the variety of birds that visit the bird feeders. There is an entrance and exit drive to the property and off road parking for vehicles. New for 2019 there is a secure bike store and we provide maintenance and cleaning equipment as well as boot driers. E bikes can be charged in the store. Attractive gardens are to the front of the cottage and raised deck area for you to relax and enjoy the stunning rural views across the countryside towards MamTor. We welcome up to two dogs and kindly ask dogs are kept on leads outside as the cottage is surrounded by farmland. You are welcome to use the games room to securely store bikes.
The Potting Shed is situated in the peaceful rural hamlet of Wormhill which lies only 4 miles from Buxton where leisure facilities including swimming pool and the Pavilion Gardens can be found as well as the famous Buxton Opera House where regular music and theatre shows are a feature.
Tideswell is the nearest village where small local shops and public houses can be found which is 2 miles away. For walkers and cyclists Wormhill is conveniently located for access to the Monsal Trail at Millers Dale. Bakewell and Chatsworth House are popular tourist attractions for visitors wishing to explore the Peak District and being only 8 miles away are easily reached from Wormhill.
