Derbyshire in the United Kingdom has a rich history that dates back thousands of years. It is one of the earliest homes for the factories and mills that kick-started the Industrial Revolution. It dates back even further as it has evidence of human settlement approximately 200,000 years ago! This can be seen when you visit the Ice Age Cave at Creswell Crags, where you can find evidence of early human settlements. Derbyshire is famous for its stunning natural landscapes. For example, Winnat’s pass - a winding path through the valley and Mam Tor which means mother hill - is the site where frequent landslides have led to the formation of multiple smaller hills. The county is dotted with brick stone cottages that are a delight to stay at. Keep reading to find out about the best country cottages in Derbyshire, the UK.
This accommodation, fondly called “Yew Tree Barn”, is fit for two guests. It has one bedroom and one bathroom. It gets its name from the gigantic Yew tree in the yard - which is perfect to spend a summer evening under, reading a book and drinking a cup of coffee. The cottage has a lovely patio with stunning views of the valley. No cable television is available, but the hosts have provided plenty of DVDs so guests can keep themselves entertained. Overall, the cottage is small, comfortable, and cosy, making it a good break from the city. Please note that small pets are allowed and that it comes with free parking.
