Biggin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage in the grounds of Biggin Grange, Biggin-by-Hartington, Peak District

Biggin Grange is a private family home with 3 barn conversions in the grounds which have been sympathetically and very individually restored. The nearby village of Biggin has a pub and country house hotel and Hartington offers 2 village shops, pub, hotel, garage and traditional cheese shop. The Tissington trail is very close for walking and cycling and it is possible to walk over the owners land to Biggin Dale which leads to the River Dove. All 3 cottages can be booked together if wished to sleep 6 as Courtyard Creamery has a dining area which can accommodate all the guests.

All on one level the very cosy cottage is entered through the private south-facing patio and garden into an open-plan kitchen/sitting room with a flagstone floor, rugs and exposed beams. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave and fridge/freezer. There is a wood-burning stove and a basket of logs, coal and kindling is included. TV, DVD player and a Wireless Bluetooth speaker. The bedroom has an antique double-size bed with goose-down duvet and 100% cotton linen. The ensuite bathroom has a bath, electric shower, hand basin & loo. The cottage is heated by oil-fired central heating. Plenty of secure storage for bikes. The tennis court is available throughout the year. A central laundry room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing board and there is also a pay phone. Free Wi-Fi. All towels are provided. Barbeque.

Stunning views over Biggin Dale and walk straight from the cottage.

About Jane Henry

Biggin Grange is owned by Richard & Jane Henry and we moved up to Derbyshire in 1993 from London. We bought Biggin Grange is 2000 and have extensively restored the house, outbuildings and farm. It is a fabulous home to bring up our 3 children and we are surrounded by over 100 acres of fields. Our black labrador, Otto, together with ponies, a donkey called Guinness, chickens and ducks have plenty of space to amuse themselves. The property is steeped in history as the Garendon Abbey in Leicestershire owned the Grange and it dates back to 1209. It is Grade II listed and there are many significant archaeological features on the property. We rent the land out to a neighbouring farmer who has beef cattle and sheep over the fields. We adore this stunning area and hope you do too!

Jane Henry purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Jane Henry chose Derbyshire Dales

Biggin Grange is a perfect place to visit as it is surrounded by acres of land with amazing views so you really get a feeling of being away from it all. But at the same time it is really convenient being close to Ashbourne and the nearby villages of Biggin and Hartington. London is only 1 hr 30 mins away on the train from Derby and Manchester is 1 hr drive away.

Living within the Peak District National Park is incredibly special and it is only when we have been away do we fully appreciate the unspoilt beauty of Derbyshire.

Excellent cottage in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable and well-appointed cottage with all that one/two people need for a relaxing stay in this beautiful area. The views are lovely and there are plenty of walks and places to see nearby. Jane and her husband were very welcoming and always quick to answer any query. I hope to come back again and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a very pleasant home base for a stay in the Peaks.

Beautiful scenery and atmosphere! Such a Cosy little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner had a fantastic stay in cheese press cottage for our anniversary weekend! We arrived on the Friday afternoon to find the cottage absolutely spotless yet so cosy with a log fire place in the main room, Jane had left homemade brownies for our arrival too which were delicious! The only thing we couldn't find was a corkscrew, however other than that everything else we could have needed or wanted was supplied. The views are truly amazing, you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere because of how peaceful it is when actually you're only 20 minutes away from Buxton and other large towns, would book again in a heartbeat! Thank you for a lovely weekend Jane!

Beautiful cottages set in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage appeared just as shown in the photographs, very homely and welcoming. So peaceful and quite with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Great location, with the local pub just a short stroll over the fields ! Harrington just over 2 miles away, and plenty of other walks to explore the local area. We would thoroughly recommend and look forward to another stay in the near future

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cheese Press Cottage is a perfect getaway. We were shown to the cottage by Jane and were immediately wowed by the stunning views away across the hills. The cottage feels very private, with it's own patio area and a parking spot tucked away from the main house.

Inside, we found a characterful, homely space to enjoy, with the added bonus of home made chocolate brownies to accompany our first cuppa, yum! The living area has a comfy sofa in front of the fireplace, a kitchen with everything you could possibly need and a table and chairs for two next to the window, cosy.

We booked our stay as an alternative to camping in a field for the YNOT festival, now that we're a little older we're not quite so hardy. So the fact that we slept extremely well (excellent quality bedding makes all the difference), and that there was a really lovely bathroom with hot shower, made us feel particularly smug!

Thanks Jane for your hospitality, we will certainly be back.

Owner's Response: It was lovely to meet you both and I'm glad you had a good weekend at the festival. As you say slightly more civilised than camping in a field! Jane

A peaceful break

  • 4 of 5

A cosy cottage in very peaceful, beautiful surroundings. We missed having a dishwasher but more than made up for with the location.

We had a very lovely break, enjoying local walks and the Devonshire Arms pub in Hartington.

Hoping to return and stay in one of the other cottages.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing a review and glad you had a good time in The Peak District. Sadly there simply isn't room in the kitchen for a dishwasher so you will have to come back again and stay at The Old Farrowings or Courtyard Creamery who both have dishwashers! Jane

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Everything two people need in a great location for touring the Staffordshire/Derbyshire moorlands. Quiet with great walking close by, and also close to the wonderful village of Hartington with pubs and a terrific village store.
