The delightful Keeper's Rest cottage sits on the very edge of the magnificent Peak District National Park, in the village of Buxworth, Originally an old miners’ cottage, nowadays it provides beautifully renovated holiday accommodation for a couple or a small family wishing to take a break in this stunning area. You can park up on the off-road parking space and enter the cottage, coming straight into the sitting room, where you can take the weight off your feet after a long walk in the Peaks and enjoy a well earned rest on one of the plush armchairs. An electric coal effect fire can warm you up in the brisk cold months, and a TV sits in the corner for your entertainment on a quiet evening. Moving further in, the cosy, well equipped kitchen/diner is complete with all the appliances and equipment you will need for your self-catered stay and has a solid pine kitchen table and four chairs allowing plenty of room to enjoy a meal with your loved ones. There is even a jar of doggy treats for your four legged friends and also dog towels provided for those muddy paws. Explore upstairs and find the two lovely bedrooms, beautifully decorated in white and other light colours to create tranquil sleeping spaces. Comprising of a double room with white wrought iron bed and a cosy single room; with the single room overlooking the pretty little garden, and the double looking out to the road below and the trees and hills beyond. The lovely light and bright shower room lies across the hall waiting to provide you with a refreshingly hot shower.
