Rakes is a recently renovated, beautiful barn conversion at Endmoor Farm, one of five luxury holiday cottages in a stunning rural location at the heart of the Peak District National Park.
A pet-friendly cottage, it lies within easy reach of some superb walks and cycle trails as well as stately homes and the three main spa towns of Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock Bath.
Internally, this nicely-appointed family-friendly holiday property provides a warm and comfortable environment in which to eat, drink and relax after a day exploring the surrounding countryside and villages, on foot, on two wheels or in four. As well as a very well-equipped home, guests also have use of a communal games room.
Raikes has been thoughtfully designed, successfully combining high spec facilities with preserving the character of the original barn (think wood floors, old oak beams and high ceilings). The ground floor has a spacious open plan design housing a kitchen, dining and lounge areas (no lonely kitchen outpost for chefs!). The two well-proportioned bedrooms are upstairs comprising a double and a twin bedroom each having their own en-suite bathrooms.
The cottage has its own private patio, while there is a second communal patio in the courtyard with tables, chairs and BBQs allowing you to choose from privacy or an opportunity to socialise. There is a local farm-shop nearby for succulent locally farmed produce, as well as plenty of independent shops, cafes and bars.
Should you desire to eat (or drink) out occasionally The Church Inn in Chelmorton was the 2016 CAMRA ‘Pub of the Year’ and is within walking distance.
This combination of luxury holiday cottage in a stunning rural location with excellent local facilities nearby ensures that a self-catering holiday in this Derbyshire property will be a memorable occasion.
