Welcome to Hope View, our beautiful holiday cottage in the heart of the Peak District National Park. We hope to offer all of our guests, both two-legged and four-legged, a home-from-home stay during their holiday with us.
Situated in the lovely village of Hartington, just a stone’s-throw from it’s centre, Hope View offers all the mod cons (including free WiFi) for our guests, set within a traditional, stone cottage.
Enter through a green gate and up a few steps, to the right is the enclosed cottage garden and to the left is the pretty green front door. On entering the hallway, to the left is a comfortable lounge with it’s multi-fuel stove for cosy nights in, a sofa and two armchairs, a Smart TV, which includes Netflix, a DVD player, plus books and games, all for your entertainment.
To the right of the hallway, is the kitchen/diner and a separate Pantry which houses abundant shelves and space for groceries, a large Fridge/Freezer, a Dishwasher, Ironing Board and Iron, and a Washer/Dryer. The modern kitchen/diner may be compact but has everything that you may need for your comfort and convenience, including an Illy Coffee Machine for your morning or after dinner coffee, an electric Induction Hob and electric Cooker, and a farmhouse table and chairs for eating in.
Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and the bathroom. The Master bedroom is large and has a beautiful double brass bedstead and an Edwardian Dresser and Wardrobe, lending a romantic elegance to the room.
The second bedroom is very pretty, with its cast-iron fireplace, combined wardrobe/chest of drawers and two 3-foot Divan beds, which can be made into a Super-king on request. This bedroom overlooks the garden, which is very colourful in the Summer.
All of the beds are to a Hotel-Standard, pocket sprung mattresses, in order to ensure that our guests have the best night’s sleep. The bedding is hypo-allergenic and, as with the Towels, high-thread Egyptian white cotton.
In the bathroom, you will find a full-length bath with an overhead electric Shower, Basin, electric Towel Rail and Toilet. Hot water is provided by an immersion heater, topped up by the multi-fuel stove and an override electric booster system.
Entering the enclosed cottage garden via two steps, to the right is a small enclosed “secret garden”, where you can drink your morning coffee or evening glass of wine at a ‘table a deux’. Then, passing under the rose arch, there is a colourful flowerbed along the left hand-side, and a lawned garden with a table and chairs for 4 people and a charcoal BBQ. It’s a very private garden, not overlooked, but with views into the village and beyond.
We are dog lovers and have 2 lively dogs of our own: a Springer Spaniel and a Golden Retriever. Consequently, we welcome up to 5 dogs to Hope View at no extra charge. All that we ask is that they remain downstairs, which has a tiled floor, during their stay….pawprints on carpets and white bed linen are a nightmare! On arrival, there will be a small doggy welcome pack, with towels, blankets, shampoo (after those muddy walks!), poo bags and dog treats. There’s also an outhouse with water and a hose for use with the shampoo!
Parking is on the roadside but we have some parking cones for our guests to use, if necessary. An outhouse provides storage for a couple of bikes, plus fuel for the stove and charcoal for the BBQ.
