Pyegreave Cottage is a character stone cottage, converted from 300 year old stables and has retained many of the original features, including oak beams and stone alcoves. The cottage sits on the hillside outside the village of Combs, near Chapel-en-le-Frith. The stables formed part of one of the old barns on Pyegreave Farm, which in 1840 was purchased at a local auction by Florence Nightingale’s father who lived in the village for a considerable time.
The cottage has outstanding views down the Combs valley, up to Castle Naze and Combs Moss and is situated in the Peak District National Park, Britain’s first National Park.
The Peak District National Park is famous for a combination of soft and rugged beauty which can be found in its moors, fields and woodlands which have an abundance of wildlife. There are also many sports and activities catered for nearby.
Situated near Kinder Scout and Edale, which are at the bottom of the Pennine Way it is in a perfect area for keen walkers and the not so serious walkers who may prefer to amble on “Tea Shop” or “Pub” walks.
For visitors who enjoy cycling there are the High Peak and Tissington Trails which are easily accessed and provide over 30 miles of flat, traffic-free cycling. Bicycles are available to hire locally.
Within a few miles of the cottage there are 5 golf courses to play from steep and exposed with panoramic views to gentle parkland surrounded by beautiful scenery. Each course has its own special features.
Places where fishing may be possible at certain times of the year include:
Errwood Reservoir, Rudyard Lake, Lamaload Reservoir, Ladybower Reservoir, River Wye
Climbing is available both indoors and outdoors for all abilities.
For those who prefer to be less strenuous, the cottage is within easy driving distance of the great houses of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall, Keddleston Hall, Lyme Hall (TVs Pride and Prejudice location) and many other National Trust properties.
The Spa town of Buxton is only 3 miles away with its famous Opera House which features a varied programme throughout the year. The Opera House is renowned for holding the annual Buxton Festival with its operas and fringe concerts.
In Castleton you will find the labyrinth of limestone caves with stalactites and stalagmites and where the prized stone Blue John is exclusively mined.
Old traditions continue to thrive and in the Summer the traditional art of decorating springs and wells with pictures using only what nature can provide takes place in many of the villages (Well Dressings).
