Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Kniveton, Derbyshire, England
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 starting from the front door.

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.
