A tastefully renovated, secret haven tucked away on the edge of the Peak District within easy reach of many attractions.

A tastefully renovated, secret haven tucked away on the edge of the Peak District within easy reach of many attractions.

Nestled on the edge of the Peak District, this beautifully presented, detached ‘chocolate box’ cottage is the perfect getaway for guests looking to explore the area. Situated in the delightful village of Bonsall, and directly on the Limestone Way, outdoor enthusiasts will relish in the amazing location.
After a busy day on foot, head back to Penny Cottage, kick your shoes off at the door and relax with your feet up in the light and airy living room. Set the wood burner going and snuggle down into the comfortable sofas, whilst enjoying the complimentary drinks basket provided by the owner. With a keen eye for interior design and renovation, the owners have designed this cottage to create a home from home feel, ensuring guests are completely relaxed throughout their stay.
The double bedrooms provide the ideal place to retreat to at night. With comfortable beds and sumptuous linen, a good night’s sleep is ensured. Once awoken from your slumber, retreat outside and enjoy an al fresco breakfast in the tiered garden and fuel up ready for another adventurous day.
Once refreshed and ready to explore this beautiful area, take a walk along one of the riverside paths, or venture a little further and see all that the Peak District National Park has to offer. Alternatively stay local and admire the beautiful village of Bonsall, which features in the Domesday Book, with its long history of lead mining which possibly dates back to the Roman times.

    We had a wonderful and relaxing week at Penny Cottage. Lucky enough to have good weather, we made the most of sitting in the beautiful cottage garden where the only sounds were the bees and church bells sounding. The cottage itself was extremely comfortable, with tasteful decor and a wonderful attention to detail - thanks so much for the welcome message, flowers and of course the cake which we really enjoyed. Penny Cottage is well placed to travel around the area and we made the most of re-visiting places we ventured to over 20 years ago.

    Probably the nicest holiday cottage we have been in. Beautifully decorated and furnished, super clean and very well equipped. We arrived late in the evening to cut flowers on the table, a homemade lemon drizzle cake with fresh cream (in the fridge!) and a welcome message spelt out in Scrabble letters - so thoughtful and very welcoming after a long journey. The cottage is surrounded by lovely views of the village and countryside - and there is a fabulous walk over the back of the cottage to the Barley Mow pub (highly recommended) which we did several times during the week. The garden is very pretty too with plenty of chairs to relax in - the kids found enough space to turn cartwheels. The village of Bonsall has everything you need including several pubs, a tearoom, shop and playground. It has a long history and there is a book in the cottage all about Bonsall which was an interesting read. The village proved to be a great base for exploring the Peak District - we packed in a lot but there’s still much more to see. We really relaxed on this holiday and didn’t want to leave!

    This is one of the loveliest cottages we have stayed in in many years. Immaculately presented, beautifully equipped, in a very pretty village near to many attractions: Haddon Hall, Masson and Cromford Mills and canal, Chatsworth, Calke Abbey, Kedleston Hall, Sudbury Hall, Bakewell and Buxton. The cottage is set in a lovely garden - which is beautifully planted and maintained and has some nice garden furniture - up a footpath (part of a network of footpaths around the village of Bonsall) and steps, the kitchen is equipped with excellent appliances and is bright and airy, the adjoining dining/breakfast room is large and comfortable with a good supply of board games and books (all in great condition and well chosen), next door a good sized living room with a good TV and comfy chairs and a big sofa, upstairs are two pretty bedrooms - one with a five foot bed which is supremely comfortable, and a lovely bathroom with a walk in shower we wished we could take home! The whole cottage is warm with great central heating and a log burner for the colder months, bright and light and we would recommend this cottage to anyone who likes a peaceful and quiet location - the church bells were all we could hear at some times! We were welcomed with homemade mini Victoria Sponge cakes and chocolate dipped Strawberries in the fridge! This is a truly well thought out and beautiful holiday home equipped to the highest standard and a great find in a lovely area!

    A beautiful cottage positioned next to the Limestone Way. Tastefully decorated, comfortable beds and warm. The weather was cold the week we stayed so we were very grateful for a toasty warm cottage to return to at the end of the day. Thank you for all your thoughtful touches and especially the delicious cake. Bonsell is close to all of the local sights and there are many walks from the cottage door. The tearoom in the village was a welcome sight at the end of a circular walk especially as we were always getting lost! Unfortunately the pub across the road was closed for refurbishment but we look forward to using it on our next visit. Jane & Simon
