Sitting snugly in a deep, cosy hollow at the foot of Eccles Pike in the hamlet of Whitehough, this 400-year-old, beautifully converted coach house offers superb holiday accommodation on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Complete with its own off road parking, well equipped and furnished to a very good standard throughout, solid oak and slate flooring, beamed ceilings, a vintage bath with rain shower and an oversized 6ft double bed (6ft 6in length) adorned with 100% cotton sheets, this cottage makes a perfect, romantic retreat for a couple. There is a range of walks available from the door and along the local canal, and Whitehough itself has two pubs offering real ales, traditional, locally sourced food and an annual 3-day beer festival attended by thousands. Outside Whitehough, Chinley, as its neighbouring village, contains a good range of shops including a newsagents, deli and an Indian restaurant. Popular tourist destinations include Lyme Park, Castleton and Buxton, which can all be easily reached in under 20 minutes.
