This fabulous, cosy barn conversion, which has been described as compact, bijou and perfect as a romantic retreat, can be found 165 yards away from the family run camping site of Upper Hurst Farm, which has been awarded the coveted Environmental Quality Mark Award. There is also an unique, eco-friendly Mongolian yurt, Gaias Hideaway (UK4189) on-site which can also be booked. Gaia Lodge, a former piggery, nestles in an elevated position that boasts panoramic views of the undulating countryside, dotted with natural hedgerows and dry stone walls; so characteristic of the southern Peak District National Park. The warm gritstone cottage has been renovated with much love, with exposed Douglas fir king post trusses, stone flag flooring and an outside patio and garden area that is fully enclosed with a dry stone wall. It is enhanced further by fully controllable underfloor heating, a wood burner and its own, completely private, additional decked patio area (south west-facing and becoming a little sun trap) with a red cedar, wood-fired hot tub, to provide a truly special stay.
Upper Hurst Farm has a nature-based, ethos, encouraging bio-diversity in fields and hedgerows. In addition, the majority of energy is provided from sustainable sources or solar panels. Resident animals include four characterful and friendly mini Shetland ponies. There are resident little owls as well as other indigenous owls and buzzards, and peregrine falcons are a common sight. Swallows and curlews return here every spring.
An area popular with walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers alike, the River Dove is just 1 mile away and takes you to Hartington, Dove Dale and Biggin, via Biggin Dale. It is also just 1 mile to the River Manifold and the start of the Manifold Trail. The Tissington Trail is around 3 miles away, and a dog friendly, food serving pub is within walking distance of the cottage, as is the local village stores. The picture-postcard village of Hartington is just 2 miles down the road and the market towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Leek are all around 20 minutes from the site, providing a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities. The infamous Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can all be reached in around 30 minutes, as can one of the country’s most popular theme parks, Alton Towers. Shop, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

    THE COTTAGE IS VERY SMART AND THERE IS SOME EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT IN IT. THE BED WAS COMFORTABLE AND MOST EQUIPMENT WORKED. HOWEVER WE COULD NOT WORK THE COOKER AND ALTHOUGH WE FOUND SOME INSTRUCTIONS IT WOULD STIL NOT WORK. THE TELEVISION NEEDE 2 NEW BATTERIES IN THE REMOTE CONTROL FOR IT TO WORK CONSISTENTLY. HOWEVER THE VOLUME SUDDENLY STARTED GOING VERY LOUD ON THE TELEVISION, AND IT HAD TO BE REDUCED ON THE STARTING REMOTE CONTROL. OTHERWISE WE ENJOYED OUR STAY AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT FOR A COUPLE.
