Lovely stone 3 bed cottage in quiet village with delightful views.
About Sarah Davidson
My husband and I are originally from Sheffield. We meant to stay in the city but Froggatt beckoned when we needed a new home on the south side. Needless to say 22 years have flown by and we're still here because it's lovely. Four grown and growing children and two labradors means we are still a busy household. We are in and out but hopefully, you can enjoy this terrific place too in peace. We still have many places left to visit in the National Park and Derbyshire and the walking options must be infinite.
Why Sarah Davidson chose Hope Valley
There is plenty to do inside and out all year round. Chatsworth will be open again soon; always worth the financial outlay to visit. Lots of routes for walking from the door or hop in the car to a different starting point. There are some lovely bike trails a short or shortish distance away as I hesitate to recommend cycling for little ones around us on the roads. Spring is a lovely time of year and Autumn can be beautiful - bright sunny days and cold clear nights; lots of tree colour and heather on the moors from August. Our visitors do love the view across the valley from the front of the house and when the leaves fall off, the famous Froggatt Edge can be seen. So we are well positioned for climbers and walkers. And finally, quite a few of our guests last year stayed for weddings - we are very close to the Maynard in Grindleford, Fischers in Baslow, Hassop Hall Hotel, The Cavendish in Baslow and The George in Hathersage;if they can't fit you in!

Ideal Peak District stone house
Immaculate newly decorated spacious large cottage. Very well equipped with everything thought through. Good furniture, although if 5 adults there is might need an extra chair in the sitting room.
Beds comfortable and bedlinen lovely quality, loads of good storage for unpacking
TV a real challenge - why is modern technology so complicated!! Possibly some even more comprehensive instructions would help to stop frustration of one guest missing Match of the Day on the big screen! Ended up watching on ipad as Wifi very good.
Dishwasher - make sure you read note in the instructions re catch on door!!
Sarah was so helpful over everything and only slight difficulty in finding the place as not much signage. Well worth discussing parking with Sarah if you have more than one car as they are very accommodating, but one needs to understand the right spots to use.
Our time cut short, much to our disappointment, by a family crisis down south so a very short but sweet visit.
Location is excellent- a really gorgeous spot with fab local walks, a beautiful property and kind, accommodating host.
A happy return
When we stayed 2 years ago we said we would return and we did last week. The weather was glorious and we did many walks - 3 from the cottage. We also enjoyed swimming in the river just over the road, the lovely garden and BBQ and relaxing in this lovely quiet peaceful place. By coincidence we were there again for the Bakewell international dance day (last Saturday in June) and returned for another ceilidh which was great fun. We came third in the Manners Arms festival pub quiz and had a good evening of darts and pool at the Bulls Head in Youlgrave. A fine week all in all!
Sarah has thought of everything to make her cottage an amazing place.
Stunning interier and very clean
The cottage was a great location for walks and climbing! The cottage is beautifully decorated, very well equipped and very clean. Plus the owner and some brilliant touches to make you feel at home!! Highly recommend
There are many famous beauty spots such as Kinder Scout in Edale, Mam Tor in Castleton and Monsal Dale to be explored and plenty of historic buildings - Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Eyam Hall and Peveril Castle in Castleton. The reservoirs at Ladybower are worth a look and you can walk/cycle all the way round for a nice day out. Or just walk from the front door...
