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

Interaction with guests
My home is on site so I am available for the whole of the stay. The cottage will be open when you arrive and I try to meet everyone on arrival day or the following morning to give a few tips on day trips and good pubs/restaurants.
