Knockerdown Cottages - Callow Cottage in Brassington, Derbyshire - for a short midweek or long weekend break

Welcome to Knockerdown Cottages - Callow Cottage and ideal choice for your next long weekend or midweek break.

"Fine cottages and facilities – in a county of unspoilt landscapes, deep dales and winding rivers . . ."

This fine courtyard of old stone barns was part of a working farm, but has now been sensitively converted to offer sixteen beautifully furnished and well-equipped cottages. Boasting a wealth of original features, they enjoy shared use of a rich choice of leisure facilities, including a superb indoor heated swimming pool in an adjacent, purpose-designed building. With a shallow area for children, the pool has its own changing rooms and a sauna, and there is a separate games room within the pool building where wi-fi is available. Brackendale Spa is an independent facility offering luxurious treatments, which guests can book by contacting the spa directly. There are two conference/dining rooms to accommodate large groups, and a separate laundry room with automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. Close to the cottages are patio and barbecue areas. All set in 3 acres of shared grounds, offering a children’s play area and plenty of space in which to relax.

This is an ideal setting for a Peak District holiday. Knockerdown Farm is conveniently situated on the road between Ashbourne and Matlock, within walking distance of beautiful Carsington Water, a superb windsurfing and sailing centre, which has an area devoted to wildlife and nature conservancy. Throughout the year they have special fun days for children of all ages. At the water sports centre guests can hire (with tuition) kayaks, windsurfers, Canadian canoes and bicycles. Professional fly fishing is available to enable guests to try their hand at fishing this popular, well-stocked reservoir. Fine walking country is virtually on the doorstep, and the renowned Tissington and Middleton cycle trails are both close by (with bikes available to hire). The principal centres of the Derbyshire Dales are nearby - Wirksworth, the market town of Ashbourne, attractive Bakewell (of pudding fame) and Matlock: all are fascinating ancient towns. Matlock Bath (6 miles) is popular as an inland resort, standing on the River Derwent amid lovely scenery, and offering boating, angling, bowls, tennis and cricket. The young (and the young at heart) will enjoy a day out at the National Tramway Museum - where visitors may enjoy the fun experience of trams from around the world! Magnificent Chatsworth House (16 miles) boasts a famous collection of art treasures as well as beautiful gardens. Haddon Hall (13 miles) is England’s most complete and authentic medieval house dating back to the 14th century. It is set in lovely countryside overlooking the River Wye, near Bakewell, which houses one of the National Park’s information centres. One of Britain’s premier theme parks, Alton Towers is within easy reach. It is set amongst appealing countryside close to the picturesque village of Alton and offers a fun-packed day out for all the family. There are several country inns within walking distance. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
