The National Trust’s Lyme Park is just 20 minutes from the property, with the historic houses of Haddon Hall and Chatsworth around 40 minutes away.

    The Coal Miners Cottage is a fabulous self catering accommodation set on the edge of the town New Mills. It is exceptionally clean, comfortable and cosy. The views from the front of the cottage are stunning. The steep track leading to the property was managed with ease in my Nissan Qashqai with enough space to turn at the top. Inside, the cottage is very well equipped with a good kitchen and appliances. The bathroom has a large shower cubicle with good water pressure. There is also a bath and there were plenty of clean towels. The log burner was a lovely bonus and there was a good supply of wood. The beds are very comfortable too. The stairs are steep but we’re perfectly manageable. The town of New Mills is well serviced with a small supermarket, pubs and eateries. There is a lot of history to explore at the Mill and Millennium walkway. The Sett valley trail is accessible from the town also. A short car journey will get you to many other areas within The Peak District National Park. Overall I would highly recommend The Coal Miners Cottage and have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the property.

    We stayed here earlier this year and liked it enough to come back. It is a very comfortable and well equipped cottage with lovely views. But beware arachnaphobes this time of year- we saw six different very large spiders in one hour!

    Overall it was a lovely cottage. The only challenge was the extremely steep driveway and tight turning circle at the top. But actually that was part of the charm.

    A really comfortable and well equipped cottage really well appointed and beautifully kept. Convenient to the sales and surrounding towns. With lots to do. Endless walking. Parking and turning point unrestricted otherwise a super cottage.

    This was an excellent base for a weekend visit to Manchester and the Peak District. The cottage was comfortable, well-equipped and warm (even though it was a very cold weekend), and there was plenty of hot water. We found parking outside the house a bit tricky in a people-mover, but didn't have any trouble finding a park on the road at the bottom of the driveway.

    My husband and I spent four nights at the cottage but it wasn’t long enough. The cottage was in a great location with amazing views from the windows. There was plenty to do in the area and with the station close by we were able to go into Manchester without the stress of driving and finding somewhere to park. We had some amazing walks Mam Tor and Lyme Park were our personal favourites. With so much more to see and do we will definitely return to the cottage. It’s a real home from home.
