General Info

This detached cottage is located in the Derbyshire village of Alstonefield. Ideal for a couple looking to explore the wonders of the Peak District, this property is a great base to return to and kick off your boots after a wonderful day of hiking. Be welcomed into the lovely open-plan living space, decorated with light colours to enhance the natural light from the windows coming through. Take a seat around the dining table with a glass of wine while your partner cooks up something special in the kitchen just for you, and afterwards you can cosy up on the sofas in front of the TV for those quiet evenings in. Step down into the hall and through to the bedroom, which holds a super-king-size which can be divided in to twin beds, for that little bit of luxury during your cottage break and in the morning throw the curtains on the floor to ceiling windows open and let the sunshine get you ready for the day ahead. After a shower in the neat bathroom, you can head out to the patio area at the front of the cottage to sit and eat breakfast and later on in the day come back from your walk to relax in the hot tub. Alstonefield is pretty village in the Peak District, with rolling countryside between spectacular valleys and it is home to two local pubs, the Watts Russell Arms being a short walk away, while local shops are around a 20-minute drive away. You can find a wider selection of activities just a bit further out, like the awesome Heights of Abraham, famous for its landmark cable car which provides an incredible journey across the Derwent Valley for those feeling brave. Head up to Buxton, around a a 25-minute drive away, for a more unusual adventure at Stoop Farm, where you can take an Alpaca for a walk and afterwards enjoy tea and cake back at the farmhouse. There are countless things to do in the Peak District, but make sure one of them is staying at The Old Cow Shed for a relaxing break with your loved one. Read More

To start off we were unable for a week to contact owners for keycode and bed setup , sent emails and left answer phone messages.” We had to ask Sykes to get info. Great location and perfect after lockdown. After reading previous feedback we were looking forward to our stay. But......................... Big notice leave as you found plus clean oven and fire. The cottage/barn was large and airy. Woodburner no tools to be able to use and clean it out (had to bring our logs back home.(we emailed owner while there no reply). The bathroom was awefull everywhere around shower was thick mould, took me ages to clean it, in bedroom mould all over walls by window , including windows and curtains.(we emailed owner while there no reply) Not good if you have a lung condition. The oven was ?????? we did not want to use it, this is dispite owner asking guest to clean on departure. We altered our menu to try not to use. The heating was superb. The hot tub is a great bonus but take care when getting out as you are up against windows (glass) Went to use laundry washing machine needed a good clean due to mould, no washing line dispite a peg basket, not all clothes are suitable to put in tumble drier.(we emailed owner while there no reply) It was obvious from the rusty state of some radiator tops where the washing was dryed.
