Originally owned by the Duke of Devonshire, Hope Cottage is set in the peaceful, delightful village of Great Longstone at the heart of the Peak District National Park. This 18th century corner cottage features a cosy mix of beams, wooden floors, planked latch doors and original stone fireplaces. Well modernised and tastefully restored, it offers the perfect haven for relaxation after a day of walking, activities or sight seeing.
Bakewell, with its bustling cattle market, beautiful shops, local produce and world renowned Bakewell puddings is within 3 miles, as is the Chatsworth Estate with its famous stately home, gardens, restaurants and shops. The picturesque Monsal Dale is approximately 1 mile from the village.
Activities in the area include walking, mountain biking, golf, fishing, gliding, horse riding and many more. The village boasts several pubs serving excellent food within walking distance, making the cottage a perfect holiday retreat or romantic bolthole.
Please note that this is strictly a non-smoking property. In order to ensure the comfort and enjoyment for all of our guests, smoking is not permitted anywhere within the cottage. Unfortunately, due to previous problems caused by excessive smoking, we now must enforce this rule by retaining the damage deposit where there is evidence of indoor smoking due to the extended cleaning time required to air and refresh the property in time for our next guests.
