Set over three floors enjoying scenic views, Coachmans Cottage features a wood burner, an expansive garden and a hot tub.

Set over three floors and next to a trickling stream, this beautifully unique, detached property boasts spectacular views over the countryside, and is in a truly private location with a stunning outside space complete with canopied hot tub. Approached by its own private drive, it has a sweeping run of stone steps leading to a spacious decked area with seating, from where sightings of wild deer can often be seen in the early hours. The owners live close by, and direct access from the top floor of the property takes you to the contemporary bedroom, and the middle floor offers cosy living space that’s enhanced by a wood burner.

Nestled in the picturesque hamlet of Fernilee within the Peak District National Park, the small town of Whaley Bridge is just 5 minutes away, with its wonderful array of local pubs, restaurants and cafes. In the other direction, the spa town of Buxton is home to the fabulous opera house, a number of festivals and the Pavilion, all of which can be reached in around 10 minutes by car. The ever popular market town of Bakewell, home to Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, is around a 30-minute drive, as are the beautiful village of Edale and Castleton. A perfect, romantic retreat, this cottage provides a magnificent base from which you can do as much or as little as you like. Shop and restaurant 2¼ miles, pub ½ mile.

    The cottage itself is beautifully appointed. Well equipped and pleasant furnishings. Unfortunately a very bad smell developed throughout the property which neither us or the owners were able to detect where it was coming from. It became too nauseating to stay in the property and we unfortunately had no alternative too cut short our holiday stay here.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for letting us know how beautifully appointed and well equipped the cottage is. It is heart warming to receive such great feedback and you are not alone in your views. Of the 85 couples who have stayed in the cottage since we opened in July 2016, (a number of them returners) only 3 have given us a score on Reevoo of less than 10, giving a score of 9 but with accompanying comments such as “exquisite, Idyllic, great location”. We fully appreciate that a perfect 10 score is difficult to give and we feel privileged when we are awarded one. We were sorry that you felt you had to leave after 4 nights with us as a result of the “very bad smell” which you say developed throughout the property. We unhesitatingly spent considerable time with you in the whole of the cottage to ascertain what the perceived issue was and whilst we were with you, the smell you have described was not evident to any of us. Every check known to us was made whilst you were with us, including an inspection of the septic tank (as you had said that the smell was one of sewage) and as you stated, we were unable to find anything. Notwithstanding this, and in the spirit of wanting everyone to enjoy and love Coachmans Cottage, we of course didn’t hesitate to offer you a full refund for any nights you chose not to stay. It should however be noted that no smell was reported by the guests who stayed before and after your visit and also that the local farmer was muck spreading on the Tuesday, which is a natural occurrence in the countryside and completely outside of our control.

    Second visit to the cottage. Love the location and the peace and quiet. Hot tub lovely. Only downside (which I don't remember when stayed there 9 month ago) was the bed was mattress was quite hard, and woke up most mornings with sore back, but that wouldn't stop us booking again, because we love the cottage and it's surroundings

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are honoured and delighted that you chose to stay again at Coachmans Cottage and we really appreciate your constructive feedback. As you noted, the bed is relatively new and so given everyone has different mattress requirements, we have now purchased a sumptuous topper for you to enjoy during your next stay. We look forward to seeing you soon and thanks again for your helpful feedback.

    Just back from a week’s stay at Coachmans Cottage in Fernilee and can honestly say it’s the best cottage we have stayed in. Nestled in beautiful countryside, the cottage is perfect for exploring the nearby National Trust locations. Richard and Claire have thought of everything for this cottage and every need is more than adequately catered for. Would definitely recommend and will be looking to return in the future. Thank you for a lovely, relaxing week away from the hustle and bustle. Perfect 10/10.

    This cottage is just simply first class in every single way. I cannot fault it - the owners have gone over and above to make sure your holiday accommodation and experience is perfect. We cannot wait to go back again.

    Another fabulous stay at Coachmans cottage. So comfortable and the cottage has everything you need and more. Hot tub and Log burner are such a treat after walking. The owners Clare & Richard are so lovely and yet again made us feel so welcome and our stay so comfy. There are fantastic walks around the reservoirs only minutes from the cottage. The local pub The Shady Oak is great with good pub grub and literally a walk down the drive. Nearby Whaley Bridge has shops and plenty of places to eat and love the walks down the canal and The Navigation Inn was a delight to find with great local characters in there and lovely food. We can't wait to go back to The Coachmans it's our favourite hideaway!

    Fantastic place to get away from it all. We went for a mini moon after our wedding and we couldn’t have asked for more. Owners were amazing. Short of there being food in the kitchen, everything has been thought of. Will be looking to go back again soon. So relaxing. Beautiful cottage, beautiful location! Hot tub and log fire are brilliant. Can’t say enough good stuff about this cottage!

    We stayed at the cottage with our dog in July. We had a lovely relaxing week, the house is in a great location in the Peak District so an excellent base for visiting the area. The house itself is quiet and in a beautiful location. Well equipped and very comfortable. The owners live nearby and were very helpful and friendly but never intrusive. We really enjoyed the hot tub after our long walks and bike rides!

    A beautiful cottage with excellent views. Everything is provided for you. The hot tub is a big plus and is situated for complete privacy.
