ABOUT THISTLEDOWN COTTAGE
Thistledown Cottage is a beautiful, limestone-built, mid-terraced cottage which can be found in the picturesque and unspoilt village of Great Longstone, in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
Immaculately presented throughout and with exposed stone walls and beams, the open-plan ground floor living space is simply inspired. The original stone fireplace is home to a wood burner, which is perfect for cosy evenings. The shaker-style kitchen takes pride of place in the centre of the house resulting in a sociable design. From the kitchen flows a superb timber-built conservatory which boasts an abundance of natural light and beautiful rural views. A perfect place to eat or just to sit and relax. Upstairs are two comfortable double bedrooms and to the front of the property is a small south-facing garden to make the most of the sunnier months.
Great Longstone is a pretty, quiet village that’s home to a village shop, dairy and two dog-friendly pubs serving food. Neighbouring Little Longstone has an additional pub and the ever popular market town of Bakewell with its shops, restaurants and regular farmers markets can be reached in around a 10 minute drive. An ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts, there are excellent routes for walkers and cyclists in the local area and you can pick up the traffic-free 8½ mile Monsal Trail which passes close to the edge of the village. Chatsworth estate with its impressive house and grounds is around a 10 minute drive, and other Peak District towns and villages within easy reach include the fascinating plague village of Eyam, 10 minutes, Buxton with its iconic Opera House, 20 minutes, and the beautiful honeypot village of Castleton famous for its caverns and Blue John Stone, 25 minutes. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
