Our lovely 18th century cottage was completely renovated to the highest standard in 2016 with solid oak fittings throughout offering guests luxury and homely accommodation. The cottage easily accommodates 3 people with one double bedroom with king size bed and one spacious single bedroom. The cottage has full central heating with radiators in all rooms, and under floor heating in the kitchen. For extra cosy nights there is also a log burning stove in a Derbyshire gritstone fireplace.
With its own private patio area, Leaside Cottage is situated in the attractive and unspoilt village of Great Longstone only a few minutes from the popular attractions of Bakewell, Monsal Head and Chatsworth House. There are some excellent routes for walkers and cyclists in and around the village. Numerous paths lead up to Longstone Edge where there are superb panoramic views. Well Dressings are held annually in both Great and Little Longstone and there are also Flower and Arts Festivals. Fully equipped with every modern convenience including free WiFi, Leaside Cottage is the ideal base for walking, cycling, golf, fly fishing for trout, or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful and varied landscapes of the Peak District National Park.
Tucked away in a secluded spot in the centre of the village, our lovely cosy cottage is the perfect place for getting away at any time of the year. Nearby is a very well stocked village shop, Also, free range eggs and milk bottled by the local farm can be bought simply by leaving the money on the shelf by the fridge! For those who enjoy eating out, there are three pubs (including one in nearby village Little Longstone) all within easy walking distance and serving excellent food. For real ale lovers, the pub in Little Longstone sells the locally brewed and highly acclaimed Thornbridge Ales.
Bakewell, considered by many to be the 'capital' of the Peak District offers a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea shops and also has a market day every Monday when market stalls completely fill the centre of town. Bakewell is only a ten minute drive away or you could take an enjoyable walk into town along the Monsal Trail, which passes close by the edge of Great Longstone village.
Whatever your interests, we are sure you will enjoy a comfortable relaxing holiday or short break in the luxury of Leaside Cottage.
