Sheepwalk Cottage - Stanton in the Peak

    Sheepwalk Cottage (5 star rated with English Country Cottages) is Grade II listed, dating back to around 1664 and filled with luxurious, rustic charm and character. It nestles at the foot of ancient Middle Street, forming part of the street's listed vista.

    The cottage has undergone a complete and thoroughly sympathetic renovation that blends contemporary comforts with its many original features. A cosy log-burner sits in the imposing 300 year old fireplace, whilst underfloor heating warms the limestone flagged flooring. Oak beams throughout, create a romantic setting in which to relax and unwind . The welcoming interior has been decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard, with careful attention to detail. Oak doors with oak latches, Farrow and Ball paint finishes, vintage Burberry fabrics and sheepskins combine to create a chic, country style.

    Sheepwalk Cottage quirkily has its front door and facade at the back! It enjoys a view of the generous and sheltered walled cottage garden, which catches the sun all day long (when it can!). The prettily planted patio area offers a relaxing place to sit, eat, drink and to discuss the delights of the Derbyshire day.

    The Lounge
    The oak shuttered front door opens into lounge which will delight with its generous proportions and decor. Cottage style settees and bespoke Burberry armchairs comfortably seat 6 people around the toboggan coffee table. The original grit-stone fireplace with contemporary log burner, limestone flagged floors (with under floor heating), stone mullioned windows and exposed oak beams create the perfect Peak cottage setting.

    Wall-mounted flat screen TV, DVD player, surround sound, DAB radio, Broadband wireless internet access and landline telephone provide all the entertainment and links you're likely to need. Leave work totally behind you or combine it with your lovely Peak District holiday!

    The Dining Area
    When it comes to dining, the stripped French cottage table (which extends if you want more space) and cute chapel chairs create a lovely space for you to relax and eat.

    The well-equipped, bespoke kitchen is small but perfectly formed! A slimline dishwasher, microwave and washing machine help to make life easy, whilst the honed granite worktops, Italian electric cooker, gas hob and fridge add extra touches of style.

    The Jacob - The Jacob Bedroom is light and airy, sleeping two in a Jacobean-headed double bed. En-suite bathroom facilities are Jack and Jill style. The room has two stone mullioned windows with views over the cottage garden and across the village to the Derbyshire hills beyond. The A framed oak beams, oak flooring (with under floor heating), original fireplace, antique furniture and luxury Lexington bedding create a beautiful, romantic sleeping space.

    The Soay - The Soay Bedroom sleeps two, in a king size or two 2' 6" single bed arrangement. En-suite bathroom facilities are Jack and Jill style. The A frame and oak beams create a dramatic feeling of space. The bespoke linen headboards, Brora throw and Lexington bedding give this room a luxury boutique feel. Lie in bed, gaze through the stone mullioned window and watch the pheasants fly over the Stanton Estate Wall into the garden.

    The Bathroom
    The immaculate bathroom serves both bedrooms 'Jack and Jill' style and is packed with character. Two exposed stone niches provide a glorious space to light your candles and rest your champagne glass (sadly plastic for safety). A strong shower is fitted over the 'tubby' bath - smaller but extra deep and wide. Adding to the luxury are Fired Earth tiles, top quality fittings, heated towel rail, shaving point, soft close oak toilet seat, British Rail mirror (rescued) and French storage cupboard. Tall people have to duck slightly under the old oak cross beam (part of the charm).
