Kingfisher Cottage - Available from 24th May 2019.

Part of the Upperdale Collection

All of our cottages in the Upperdale Collection are located in Monsal Dale on the banks of the River Wye - one of only a handful of rivers where anglers can fly fish for wild trout. The Wye meanders through one of the most scenic valleys in Derbyshire, where you can walk along the river, admire the stunning landscape or rest by a babbling brook and have a picnic. Monsal Head, high above Monsal Dale, is one of the most photographed viewpoints in Derbyshire. Located just six miles from Chatsworth and three miles from the pretty market town of Bakewell, the Upperdale collection of cottages are perfectly placed to explore the peak district.

There is abundant wildlife along the river including a resident Kingfisher and Derbyshire's local bird, the Dipper, skimming the surface of the river for food - and we have named our cottages after them. Kingfisher and Dipper Cottage were once barns on a working farm. Left derelict for many years, they have been sympathetically restored into two beautiful holiday cottages.

All six cottages in the Upperdale Collection are just a stone's throw away from the popular Monsal Trial, a nine mile disused railway line perfect for gentle walking and cycling. Luckily, the cottages at Upperdale are located half way along the trail - just an easy level walk into Bakewell or the breathtaking scenery of Water-cum-Jolly, an ice age gorge.

Outside, you can find a garden (safe for children) with garden furniture & a BBQ
