Region: The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.
Town: This millstone grit village is surrounded on three sides by the beautiful Peak District National Park. Old Glossop can be reached along the Snake Pass, aptly named because of the way it winds past dramatic and exceptional scenery. Around the original market square, the village has houses dating back to the 17th and 18th Centuries and a splendid Norman Church, with, rumour has it, a haunted vicarage. Eastwards on the Snake Pass will take the holiday maker past the Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs, where the famous Dambuster Squadron practised. Nearby Glossop provides a range of amenities and access to the spectacular Peak District with the towns of Buxton and Castleton in the Hope Valley within easy reach. A fabulous holiday destination for the whole family.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Lovely situation - I enjoyed crossing the bridge over the stream to get to the property. Able to go for long walks straight from the cottage. Warm, comfy cottage. In great part of the village - lovely stonework and villagey feel to the place but easy drive to the town centre for the usual shops etc. Very quiet.

Only real problem was finding the place, had ongoing argument with sat nav. Worth the effort. Beautiful, quiet setting and lovely welcome from the owners. Cottage was so cosy. Small but everything for a relaxing break. Marvellous walks on the doorstep, not to mention three dog friendly pubs (Glossop Triangle) within three or four minutes. Not sure who enjoyed it most, my wife and me or the dog. Can`t wait to go back.

Lovely little cottage for a couple - cosy and comfortable. We struggled a bit with the boiler- it kept coming on noisily in the night but other than that perfect. Especially for country dwellers like us - it was no nice to have 3 pubs within 5 minutes walk, and a town within 15 minutes walk! There are 31 pubs within one mile of Glossop centre, not to mention good coffee shops,restauranats, takeaways - oh, and the Peak District literally within walking distance if the weather permits!
The one disappointment was that previous visitors wrote constantly in the book about how friendly and welcoming the oweners were - but we only saw them on arrival and leaving. But it was dark by 4.30 so we didn't have much chance to see them.
Peace & Quiet

A perfect getaway for a couple. A cute little cottage with everything you need and a nice welcome tray. Glossop, a great place for restaurants too!
