Stay in the beautiful Peak District

Knowl Cottage
 
This cottage is between 500 and 700 years old, it could therefore have been built sometime in the 1300s.
 
It was originally of cruck construction, with a thatched roof.
Some time later the thatch was removed, and the walls raised to build a second floor. Part of the original cruck beam can still be seen both downstairs and is in fact featured upstairs.
There are still plenty of further old beams to be seen, although these further ones are not as old as the cottage itself.
 
Relaxing inside, you certainly feel you have stepped into the past, (with all the mod-cons of course).
 
This cottage has been graded with the maximum 5 Stars by the English Tourist Board.

Knowl Cottage Interior
In the spacious lounge there is an impressive inglenook fireplace with open grate, bordered by dressed stone lintels.
 
There are also original stone mullion windows and beams.
Without doubt this is a most relaxing room. There is a television, video and CD player, but who needs these - whether in summer or winter, just sit in the leather settees and look at your surroundings!
The cottage is well heated with fully controllable central heating in addition to this open fire place.
 
All heating is included in the rental!
This cottage (and the other two) up-graded to the highest quality as is reflected by the Tourist Board grading which less than one percent of all cottages achieve.
 
There is a fully loaded superior custom built fully equipped kitchen, with gloss work-tops and real granite sink, fridge with good sized freezer compartment, micro-wave, dish-washer and washing machine, adjacent to the open-plan beamed dining room.
 
On the first floor are three large bedrooms, all en-suite, two doubles and one twin.
One en-suite (in an entirely seperate room off the bedroom) has bath with shower over, the others (again one of them in an entirely seperate room leading off the twin bedroom) have large showers. Again the age of the property is apparent from these rooms.

Manifold and Dove Cottages
 
Behind Knowl Cottage are two further stone cottages, Manifold and Dove Cottages, converted from an old barn.
 
Again these have just undergone substantial upgrading, once more with little regard for the expense.
They were previously for four persons each but we have have made them both one bedroomed to give more room and comfort to the occupants.

Manifold bedroom
Both have double beds, but one of them, Manifold Cottage also has the option of an extra single bed, giving the option of sleeping three in a room or alternatively, using as two singles.
 
The overall floor space of the two cottages is roughly the same.
 
They have log effect stoves in the living areas, again fully controllable central heating throughout, leather settees and leather chair, fully equipped modern kitchens, again with gloss work-tops and real granite sinks, fridge-freezers, micro-wave, ceramic topped electric cookers (far more controllable for cooking than traditional electric cookers) and plenty of original old beams and other interesting features.
Being in the courtyard, they are exceptionally quiet.
Again there is provision for parking in the courtyard.
 
These two cottages have comfortably achieved the high grading of 4 Star awarded by the English Tourist Board, the maximum that could be awarded due to their being no washing machine, nor dish-washer in the cottages.
 
(Laundry facilities are shared between the two cottages in the laundry room on the other side of our courtyard.)
