Welcome to your historic Peak District holiday home

Welcome to your historic Peak District holiday home

Welcome to your historic Peak District holiday home

The Peak District is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys walking holidays, stunning landscapes and cosy pubs. Set in the heart of England, the southern tip of the Pennines is where the Northwest meets the Midlands. The area has long been a favourite destination for walkers, climbers and even cavers.

And within the Peak District, there are few locations more lovely than the Hope Valley. The Derbyshire village of Hathersage is a short drive from Sheffield and numerous other cities. It has gorgeous views of the Hope Valley in all directions. It is surrounded by charming old country houses like Offerton, Highlow, and Hazelford Halls. And the Derwent Valley Heritage Trail runs close by the village. So where better as a base for your Peak District holiday?

From tollbar to luxury holiday home

And where better in Hathersage than an historic, Grade II listed cottage? Residential Estates look after Whim Cottage, a delightful lodge just outside the village on Sheffield Road (the A6187). It was built in 1844 as a tollbar on the border between South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. That makes it an ideal base for exploring both counties. The cottage’s immediate setting is at the ‘Fidler’s Elbow’ where Ringinglow Road parts from Sheffield Road. That means Burbage Moor is also on your doorstep.

Of course, the history of the surrounding area goes back a lot further than 1844. Just below Stanage Edge to the north of the village lay ‘Mesolithic microliths’ indicating prehistoric settlements. And not far away are the remains of a Romano-British farmstead. There are a number of local legends concerning Robin Hood. And it’s beyond dispute that the area later played an important role in the Industrial Revolution. More recently, of course, the area is popular with tourists, not least because of Hathersage’s heated outdoor swimming pool.

Your own garden – and wood!

Returning from your adventures in the local area, Whim Cottage could not be more welcoming.

The lounge and dining room has a rustic stone flagged floor, exposed beams and multi-fuel burner. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and both bedrooms are spacious doubles. Perhaps best of all, the cottage has its own garden, which merges seamlessly into Whim Wood. Beyond lies Owler Tor and several fantastic walks, including Millstone Edge. And while staying at the cottage, why not also visit the nearby Chatsworth House, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. There you’ll also find a scenic garden, farmyard and playground, perfect for a day out with the children.

Anyone planning a holiday in the Peak District should definitely check out this quirky and charming property.
