Notes:
Vicarage cottage is bright and welcoming with comfortable furniture and new beds. Modern heating and a log burning stove have recently been installed together with a satellite box for the TV. The cottage was once the drawing room and bedrooms of the Vicarage and the fire place and various period features including shutters take one back into the early 19th century. It has recently been refurbished and is cheerful and attractive. Hollinsclough is a charming friendly village in remarkable country where the sounds are the distant rumble of a passing tractor, cows and chickens going about their daily life and the stream running down to the River Dove.

Idyllic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a mini break in the October half term in this delightful cottage. It's rural setting within walking distance of two exciting hills including Chrome Hill make it a safe but interesting place for children to explore. The cottage is about half an hours drive from Alton Towers (which we did with our tescos vouchers!) but equally close to Mam Tor and all the caves. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. We were very happy there and would certainly consider going back there again.

Beautiful spot in the Peaks

  • 4 of 5

Very pretty cottage on the edge of The Peak National Park, great base for exploring the fantastic countryside.

Very quaint cottage, had pretty much everything you could need.

I have a couple of grumbles, some of the information leaflets were extremely out of date and it would have been nice to have maps of some of the walks close to the cottage.

There was a rather overwhelming smell of damp in the cupboard in the lounge which had made the beddIng for the sofa rather unpleasant to use.

But overall we had a wonderful visit and a thorough fantastic holiday

Very characterful cottage in an extremely attractive setting.

Unfortunately we had to cut short our intended week's stay because of an unexpected death in the family, and apart from one good day in Buxton, we were unable to achieve our other planned outings.

Spacious cottage in idyllic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Vicarage Cottage is in Hollinsclough in the southwestern part of the Peak District and on the Staffordshire side of the border. We were fortunate to get 2 1/2 days of sunshine. Access is along very narrow roads and once there you are quite isolated. The only noise is from cows and birds. The house is on two floors and the stairs are quite steep-- at least for toddlers. It was a bit cold in the morning but one can light a fire. The kitchen is more than adequate. There is a Methodist Church next door and even a school, surprising in such a tiny village. Buxton is a short drive and the nearest grocery store is in Longnor, 3 kms away. Our only complaint is that the two cribs promised upon booking were not provided. Otherwise we had a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: So glad that you had a good stay and so sorry about the cribs. I think I asked you to remind me about them a week or so before you came as it was booked a long time ago. If I didn’t, forgive me. We do have two travel cots and one of them was in the cottage but folded up. Thank you for letting me know that it was cold in the morning. It was particularly cold last week but we could have turned up the heating if we’d known you were cold. (The individual radiators are on thermostats.) Mark

Lovely, clean, peaceful, homely, relaxing place to stay. Perfect to get away from it all...

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely 3 night stay. We had everything we needed. The owner called past to make sure we were happy but didn't intrude. Kids loved playing outdoors and slept great with all the fresh air. Surrounding countryside great for walks but close enough to lots of places to visit to keep everyone occupied. Highly recommend for a simple, relaxing getaway. Climbing the hill behind was a highlight of our stay. We will be back.

The cottage is situated in the heart of the beautiful Peak District near Buxton. Ashbourne and Bakewell are near by. On one side of the cottage are the spectacular peaks of Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill and on the other are heather clad moors of the Staffordshire Moorlands.

The market towns of Leak, Buxton, Ashbourne and Bakewell are all an easy drive, each having their own market days.

Hollinsclough is beside the River Dove and is a walk away from the village of Longnor which boasts four pubs and various eating places.

Other Activities: hill climbing, country market browsing
