EXCEPTIONAL ONE BEDROOM SELF CATERING HOLIDAY COTTAGES WITHIN THE SCENIC CONSERVATION VILLAGE OF FOOLOW AT THE CENTRE OF THE PEAK DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK

Visit England Four Star Self Catering'Blessed with all these picturesque ingredients, Foolow could easily serve as one of those idyllic villages featured in Midsomer Murders - without the murders of course' - Derbyshire Life

The village of Foolow is described in the Peak Park Tourist Guide as being one of the prettiest villages in the Peak. Many insist it is the prettiest! A small conservation village with pond, ducks, Manor House, village green, 14th century cross, bull baiting ring, one pub with good food offerings and a tiny picturesque church.

The location is ideal for exploring the many attractions of the area too numerous to mention here but including the historical plague village of Eyam (a couple of miles away), the Chatsworth Estate, Haddon Hall, Ladybower (of Dam Busters fame), Bakewell, Castleton, Buxton (the highest town in the country), the lovely dales of Lathkill, Cressbrook, Monsal (and Foolow's own Silly Dale!) and the numerous edges and crags. Other areas of beauty such as Dovedale are slightly further afield but are easily accessible. Visitors will appreciate why so many films, to include period dramas and television programmes, are set in the area.

The Bulls Head by the village green offers both edible and liquid refreshment as does the famed "Barrel" which occupies a commanding position on Bretton ridge high above Foolow affording views over five counties. The nearest shops are approx. two miles away in Eyam. Bakewell is the nearest market town whilst Sheffield and Chesterfield are each only half an hour’s drive away. Manchester is easily accessed by both road and local train stations - about an hour away by rail.

Foolow acts as a crossroads as far as a variety of walks are concerned and is extremely popular with walkers, artists and lovers of country life.

The cottages are furnished in traditional style with modern twists and are of great charm, comfort and character - a testimony being the number of repeat bookings received from guests year after year.

No Smoking cottages. Well behaved 100% housetrained dogs are accepted by arrangement but must not be left unattended at any time and must not be allowed on the furniture. An accessibility statement for each of the cottages is available on request.
