Completely restored but with a heritage feel, Jack’s Cottage is located in the picturesque village of Longnor, in the heart of the Peak District National Park, and it is an excellent base from which to explore the many delights of the region. The cottage has been thoughtfully restored, with a perfect balance of original features and up-to-date mod cons, and it has everything you could need for a relaxing and stress-free break. Snuggle up by the fire, sit in the garden enjoying the views or get out and explore this beautiful part of the world, with its sensational scenery, quaint market towns and magnificent National Trust houses. This is a sublime setting for a romantic getaway.
The Peak District is renowned for its beauty and it is a haven for ramblers, climbers and cyclists, whatever the weather. The village of Longnor has a choice of pubs, a well-stocked village store, a Post Office, a tea room and a fish and chip shop. Further afield, the Peak District is packed with things to see and do. Visit the Opera House, Georgian Crescent and Royal Stables in Buxton, explore famous Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall or the National Trust properties Hardwick Hall, Kedleston Hall and Calke Abbey, or wander round the parks and gardens at Ilam, Biddulph Grange and Lyme Hall. Alternatively, while away an afternoon in the market towns of Bakwell and Ashbourne, sit in a tea room in Tissington or Eyam, take on the High Peak and Manifold cycle trails, or stop in at Poole's Cavern or the Blue John Mines at Castleton. Never a dull moment!
