Hathaway Cottage in Edale

Hathaway Cottage, a stone-built rural cottage in the idyllic hamlet of Oilerbrook, Derbyshire, offers couples on holiday the perfect home base for touring the High Peak district.

This romantic cottage on the owners’ working hill farm adjoining their farmhouse is approached by a farm lane. The cottage enjoys a southerly aspect, providing superb, unspoilt views of the surrounding hills and valleys.

The cosy living room opens to a fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area, with patio doors leading to a delightful garden. The one-bedroom cottage has thermostatically controlled heaters in all rooms and a heated towel rail in the bathroom.

Hathaway Cottage is a 10-minute walk from Edale’s pretty High Peak village within the Peak District National Park. The village has two pubs to enjoy a romantic night out, or guests can walk the Pennine Way or enjoy day trips to nearby Castleton, with its Blue John Caves, or the spa town of Buxton.

Breathtakingly beautiful place to be

Cosy, warm little cottage, perfect for two.Owner friendly but not intrusive. Far away from noise and traffic, the only sounds were of birds singing and baa-ing sheep. Perfect for walking or visiting the best of the area.

Beautiful place

A bath & freezer compartment in the fridge would be good. Otherwise fantastic, have already booked for next year.

Superb cottage.

Such a lovely cottage, well fitted out with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The view from the lounge and patio is beautiful over to Mam Tor and the surrounding area of the dark peak district and the walled garden is very private.
