    17th Century Stone, Traditional, Cosy, Country Cottage With Original Features

    Historic cottage in Hope Valley
    • Please note, for the safety and peace of mind of our guests, we have introduced additional cleaning and disinfecting measures to supplement our already high standards of hygiene • Chime Cottage is a charming, period property ( circa 1670 AD). Pet Friendly and Free WiFi, BT TV & Netflix • SPECIAL DEALS THIS AUTUMN. NOW FROM JUST £65 PER NIGHT • Situated in Bradwell village, this cottage represents the peace and relaxation that you associate with Village Life. Typically stone built exterior with solid oak original beams running throughout the lounge, kitchen/dining area and upstairs bedroom, together with the inglenook fireplace, form the perfect image of 17th Century Middle England. Once inside, you will notice that the stone sink and and utility area is hewn from the bedrock, on which the cottage is built. The light ash kitchen provides ample storage and there are sufficient place settings for up to 4/6 people. Although it is a working kitchen, sorry, there is no dishwasher! The kitchen leads to a small wash place containing a washing machine and combi boiler, which provides constant instant hot water. Onward from the wash place is the little charming outside courtyard, with high stone walls and hanging garden. The ground floor is completed by a small, cosy lounge complete with Inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove. Once inside the lounge there is a 3-seater sofa-bed for occasional use and a matching armchair. Guests often comment that when they light the wood burner stove, they don't ever want to move!! However, that would be a big mistake, as there is lots to see and do beyond the walls of the cottage - both in the village and beyond. There is also a bathroom, with roll-top bath, shower & toilet. Up the wooden staircase - which is rather steep - to the first floor landing you will find twin beds in a light, charming space, suitable for any age, but not for privacy as the main bedroom is located through the landing area. A family with children or a same gender group would be most suited to these sleeping arrangements. The main bedroom has a double bed with luxury foam mattress, and convenient drawer units and nearby power sockets. Two windows provide dual aspect across the village and towards the hills beyond. This character cottage also offers a taste of the present day with central heating, BT Smart TV (NetFlix included) and Wi-fi. Out the front door and to the left is a small hill and left again takes you to the garage and its forecourt - where we politely ask you to park your car - abundant with potted plants (depending on the season). Here you will find a tiny gated arch which leads to the little terrace garden, typical of the cottages in this region. Many gardens are situated nearby, rather than within the grounds of the residence! Depending on the season, here you can relax with a glass of wine overlooking the distant hills. When you decide to venture beyond the cottage you can go down the main hill to the village. Here you will find the Post Office, which is the centre of the community, providing all the usual newspapers (and some unusual ones!), cards, etc. and a friendly conversation. There is a newly renovated CO-OP supermarket for your provisions, a beauticians, hairdressers, a Fish and Chip shop, a bakery and a Doctors' surgery! There are two play parks - both well equipped - a chapel, a church and four pubs!! One of which is only 100 m/yards away. Nearby villages include Castleton. Its name is the clu situated high above the village and is well worth the treck for magnificent views!! Castleton has a wonderful array of tiny souvenir shops selling the famous 'Blue John stone' from the region's mines and many places to indulge yourself with cream teas and beverages, plus pubs serving full menus.This is also the location of the famous Blue John Mine, Treak Cliff Cavern, Peak Cavern and the subterranean river cave, Speedwell Cavern. All these magnificent caverns are open to the public and have guided tours. Hope village is en-rote to Castleton and is a favourite of walkers and visitors to its annual show, sheep-dog trials and car boot sales. Travelling East you find Hathersage, the burial place of 'Little John' of Robin Hood fame. The closest City is Sheffield and can easily be reached, as can all of the above mentioned villages, either by car or bus, which stop in the centre of Bradwell!From Manchester Airport it's approximately 1 hour 30 minutes by car. A car is strongly advised to make the most of this fascinating part of the world.Well-dressing is a craft, unique to the area. This requires teams of villagers drawing, 'puddling' and petalling a themed picture using only natural resources to make up the completed pressed into a bed of clay. When it is complete it is mounted on a prominent site in each village. All the wells are different and some villages have more than one ( Bradwell has four!). This takes place during June through to September in Peak District villages. A little further afield you will discover the villages of Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and many other villages of outstanding beauty, offering unique shopping opportunities and even cable car rides. Among these is the famous 'plague' village, Eyam, which is the only known village outside London to conract the Black plague. The plaques on the cottage doors tell the horrific stories of the passing of the 17th Century occupants! The museum tells the whole story.Walkers will enjoy the fabulous network of public footpaths, sites of historic digs, and guided walking trips around the Peaks.Chatsworth House is the residence of the Duchess of Devonshire, with many connections to The Royal Family. The house and gardens are open to the public all year round with the exception of a couple of weeks during the Christmas period.There is an adventure playground and a wonderful prize- winning Farm Shop. It is approximately 20 minutes by car from Bradwell.The cottage has a fairly comprehensive collection of maps, walks and information booklets about the Peak District and all the amazing activities and opportunities to investigate the area.If there is anything else we can help with, please don’t hesitate to let us know!Many thanksAlex

    Cosy family cottage in beautiful location.
    Had a fabulous experience on our first holiday as a family of four. The property had everything we needed and we really appreciated the communication from the owner prior to our arrival. Both the house itself and the location were very pretty and there was plenty to do in the area. We were sad when it was time to leave!
