Holiday Rental House
Milk Maid's Cottage is a lovely 2 bedroom former dairy adjacent to the owners' 18th Century farmhouse, with exposed stonework and lots of interesting nooks and features. Situated at the top of the attractive grey stone village of Kniveton, the cottage is fully equipped with everything the holidaymaker could want. With a barbecue and outside seating area, the cottage has shared use of the owners' spacious gardens, which contain fruit trees and seating as well as a pretty stream with wooden bridge over. The local pub The Red Lion is within walking distance and serves good, home-cooked food. The charming little church is next door, famous for its tower and font, both dating back to the 13th Century. Miles of public footpaths cross the rolling fields all around, and there are many walks s...Milk Maid's Cottage is a lovely 2 bedroom former dairy adjacent to the owners' 18th Century farmhouse, with exposed stonework and lots of interesting nooks and features.

Miles of public footpaths cross the rolling fields all around, and there are many walks starting from the front door. Carsington Water is just up the road, with its visitors centre, miles of footpaths and children's play area to explore. Beautiful Dovedale, famous for its stepping stones, and Black Rocks Country Park are a short drive away. Not forgetting the UK's premier theme park, Alton Towers which is 20 miles away. Our favourite places to visit include antique shopping in Matlock and Wirksworth; ascending to the Heights of Abraham by cable car in the old Victorian spa town of Matlock Bath; and cycling the path of the old Ashbourne to Buxton railway line along the Tissington Trail. The cottage itself has one double bedroom and one twin, a well-appointed kitchen diner and comfortable living area with a selection of books, games and DVDs. Fresh bread, home-made biscuits and other provisions are provided for guests on arrival. Ample private parking, including secure garaging on request, make this an ideal holiday choice. If you are interested in a two night stay please send a inquiry and I will try to fit you in when I can. More

The cottage was clean, comfortable and very much a home from home. Liam made sure our Christmas and new year were very special. We would be very happy to visit the village and the cottage again. Best wishes from France, Paul

I spent three days here. The hosts were lovely, very welcoming and available; the property all that I had hoped for and expected. The cottage has everything needed for a break in the Peaks, plenty of parking. There are many beautiful and peaceful walks within...More

Stayed for a couple of nights. All the things you would expect and more - the cakes were a lovely touch. Just what we needed, but wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back when the weather is better.

The pictures are a bit misleading as like an estate agent photo the rooms looked much larger than they are. The owner should really point out there is no mobile signal none of us could get any! Wifi not available however for those looking to...More

Thanks for the comments. I usually have liquid soap in the bathroom but this clearly wasn't there and the sugar in a bag was clearly missed when I was preparing the cottage. Signal is quite tricky in the village and some networks are better than...More
