I wanted to let you know that we had a great time at Horseshoe Cottage and will gladly recommend it to other people. It's a great place, and very well equipped. Your personal touches were greatly appreciated, and the log fire was brilliant. The views are amazing, and it makes a great base for exploring the beautiful countryside around. Having internet was a bonus too.

Uppermoor Farm and Holiday Cottages occupy an enviable elevated position in the White Peak part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Ideally located for access to all major Peak District attractions from stately homes (Chatsworth and Haddon Hall) to picturesque towns and villages (Ashbourne, Bakewell, Buxton, and Matlock). For the seriously energetic (climbing, cycling, horseriding, sailing) or for the more passive soaking up the fantastic scenery, (Monsal Head, Dovedale, Castleton) and lots more too. A 'walkers paradise' with a network of trails and footpaths to enjoy (The Tissington Trail & High Peak Trail). The Minninglow Trail starts almost from your doorstep, just a short stroll across some of our own 70 acres of rolling Derbyshire Dales latticed with pretty stone walls. The spectacular Peak District has something for everyone. Alton Towers is only about 40 minutes away and nearby Carsington Water offers sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and other water sports as well as mountain biking.

Other Activities: Steeped in historic places of interest like Chatsworth house & Haddon Hall & Buxton Opera House
