Holiday Cottages In Alport

Alport is a quaint little hamlet containing chocolate box pretty cottages with roses around the door and gardens reaching down to the Rivers Lathkill and Bradford whose gentle clear waters marry together on the outskirts of the village.Holiday cottages in Alport will ooze charm and character and are the perfect venue for a romantic break.

From any of the holiday cottages in Alport it will be just a stone’s throw to a fabulous footpath, a wonderful riverside walk or a network of quiet country lanes, as Alport lies surrounded by an area of natural beauty in the heart of theDerbyshire Dales countryside.

The majority of Alport is an estate village to Haddon Hall, owned by the Duke of Rutland. This has enabled the village to remain virtually unchanged in the last century, with very few new buildings and only a handful of barn conversions to be found. Staying at one of the holiday cottages in Alport will take you back in time and on a journey down memory lane.
Although Alport is now a quiet and sleepy little village, it takes its name from The Portway which was an important main route through Derbyshire more than two thousand years ago. None of the holiday cottages in Alport date from that time, but it is said that nearby Harthill Hall is 13th century in parts and Monks Hall in the village is certainly hundreds of years old, reputedly containing a secret tunnel.
Lead mining was the chief industry in Alport during the 18th and 19th centuries, with some of the holiday cottages in Alport being built as lead miner’s cottages. However, apart from a few bumps, dips and hollows in the fields around the village, the scars of the lead mining era have healed over to become nature reserves packed with wild flowers and mature trees.
From the holiday cottages in Alport it is only a short drive or 15 minute walk up the hill to Youlgrave where there are three public houses and even more character properties. Alternatively, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House are only minutes away as is the lovely market town of Bakewell.
Holiday cottages in Alport are prefect for a country retreat offering peace and quiet, scenic views and an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and touring holidays. So be sure to pack your walking gear and pedal cycle if you prefer an activity packed stay at one of the holiday cottages in Alport or a good book if you decide to relax.
