Absolutely super few days over new year, was a truly lovely cottage with great access to walks & hikes- we were lucky with the weather & the scenery is literally breath taking! Thank you to all involved.
We loved the cottage. It’s beautifully finished and had everything we needed. Including a cheery Christmas tree. The garden was great for our dog too. Lovely location too.
What a lovely cottage in the Peak district. walks along Curbar Edge, the Pipe track under Curbar Edge and along the river right outside the door. A short car drive to Chatsworth, Bakewell, and the rest of the peak district. Highly recommended. Thank you for such a great cottage to stay over Christmas. Everything was lovely and the additional Christmas decorations just make it extra special for the boys

Lovely well equipped cottage with parking (a plus in Curber!), excellent directions and check in. Ideally situated for walks etc. Great communication from owner.
This is one of the best Airbnbs we’ve stayed in. Super comfortable. Fantastic location for exploring the Peak District from the doorstep yet close to all conveniences you might need. The perfect cottage for our first holiday with our baby: warm thanks to being so well insulated, fully equipped kitchen so we could make dinner each night, clean and cosy. Bedrooms are very generous and beds are comfortable with lovely soft bedding. A real gem. We can’t wait to go back! Thanks, Marita!
Cannot rate this cottage more highly, as long as you want peace. Amazing location. Very special.
Neat little cottage, well put together and with everything you need for a few days away.

Fabulous cottage in an amazing location. Everything about the cottage was perfect, beautifully clean and well equipped. Communication was fantastic and the location is absolutely stunning.
“Edge Cottage is a delight. Highlights are the beautiful mature garden, with plenty of space to eat outdoors in fine weather; a well-equipped kitchen and a wood-burning stove for keeping warm when the weather's not so good. Marita is a responsive and thoughtful host. This was our second visit and we hope to keep coming back.”

Just wanted to thank you ( and Marita who posted the items we had left behind! ) for our comfy and relaxing stay in Edge Cottage. It was a great place to meet with our son and to enjoy the great walks in the Peaks. The cottage was perfect for walking , wine and board games during a rather cool and sometimes wet autumn stay. I would thoroughly recommend Edge Cottage.
This house is everything you could want in a country getaway. Incredibly beautiful property, insanely well located for access to some of the Peak District’s best known hikes & natural wonders. The house is also amazingly well equipped for self-catering. We had the best time!”

Great space, full amenities so was great for cooking large amounts of food and located in a beautiful spot in the Peaks. Would recommend to a friend!
“Really comfortable, stylish and clean property in a great location for peaks, towns and Chatsworth. You can choose to go on circular walks on your doorstep up Curbar edge, or travel to the popular day walks up Kinder Scout or Mam Tor. Chatsworth is just down the road with conveniently located shops and other amenities in Baslow. Don't neglect the local pub, the Bridge Inn - only a short walk away with great food and beer. We would definitely return next time we're planning a short break in the Peak District.”

Curbar, Baslow and Froggatt Edges offer a spectacular walking route where you can view both the Dark and White Peaks. These three gritstone edges are part an almost continuous line of cliffs running from Stanage Edge down to Birchen Edge at the southern end. These Edges once famous for millstones, are now known as great places to rock climb. There over 200 rock-climbing routes on Curbar Edge alone, making the edges a mecca for walkers and climbers alike. For walkers Baslow Edge also offers interesting features including a memorial to the Duke of Wellington, a giant rock called the Eagle Stone which in years gone by the young men of Baslow used it to show off their prowess and fitness for marriage by climbing to the top and even some resident Highland cows. A nice circular route which also includes walking along the river Derwent can be viewed by clicking here or please click here for a shorter circular route around Curbar Edge which starts at Curbar gap car park, just up the road from the property. There is also a great refreshment van called Jolly's that is frequently at the car park which serves some fantastic cakes, a lovely treat after a long walk!
Nearby is the village of Eyam, famously known as the plague village. The village was unique in its response to the outbreak of plague in 1665 as the village placed itself in voluntary quarantine. Eyam museum is great to place to find out more about the plague story and the history of village, there is also Eyam Hall, built in 1676 in a Jacobean style. The house is open to visitors (please check the National Trust website for opening hours) and next door there a small craft centre, which is also worth a visit. There are many great walks around the village and it is lovely just to wander around as many of the buildings also have plaques giving details of their history and the part their inhabitants played in the Plague saga, notably the Plague Cottages where the outbreak began.
Castleton is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to the Peak District, it has an array of natural and historical features both above and below ground, and is surrounded by superb walking country. High above the village stand the imposing ruins of Peveril Castle. To the west of Castleton lies Mam Tor offering amazing views and fantastic walking on the ridge. Castleton is most well-known for its four caves, each offering a different experience to the visitor, Peak Cavern, Speedwell Cavern, Treak Cliff Cavern and Blue John Mine. The caverns are a great activity for kids and when the weather does not cooperate for outdoor activities.

Fabulous open air heated pool in the nearby picturesque village of Hathersage, with a great selection of events throughout the year. The lido is heated to a lovely 28oc all year round and has a nice cafe on site, undercover seating area as well as a grassed area (perfect for sun bathing in the summer months) and a bandstand. Please check out their website for opening times and further details on special events including night time swims and outdoor cinema events.
No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth Estate. There really is something to do for every member of the family - The Farmyard and Adventure playground, the magnificent house and the gardens which are equally as impressive as the house , with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.
