Accommodation for groups is available by linking two of the cottages (Bottom & Seventh Heaven) or more.

From relaxing breaks for two to an energetic family holiday, you will experience the best of what’s on offer within walking distance, including stunning wildlife, beautiful scenery, great walks from the door, a pub, tearooms and even the Churnet Valley Steam Railway.

Peak District Self Catering Cottages

Most of the cottages have private gardens, which are fairly dog secure (depending on your dog!) Outside is a great space, with gardens for games, BBQs, relaxing & fresh air. There is also the fabulous BBQ shelter where you can sit around a fire pit and relax with family or friends. All this is set within 30 acres of ancient woodlands and flower rich meadows bursting with native birds, wildlife and our own Dexter cattle herd. The Cottages themselves all have woodland, lake or canal views, as well as log fires and exceptional kitchens and bathrooms. After a great night’s sleep in the peace and quiet, you can explore many of the local attractions and places of interest close to Foxtwood.

Alternatively, you can relax without moving. We have outdoor games, a trampoline, as well as table football, skittles, table tennis and more – something for children of all ages.

All our cottages are non smoking & we operate ‘quiet time’ after 10 pm to ensure a peaceful holiday for all.

Since opening our self catering peak district holiday cottages in 2000, we’ve absolutely loved being here.
We’re surrounded by woodlands and wildflowers, which makes just being here a joy. Listening to the woodpeckers hammering at the trees, the birdsong and the farm animals makes us really appreciate the beauty of our location.

Being able to walk for miles, in any direction, into fantastic countryside, along canals, rivers and into the Peak District is a real thrill and something we never tire of.
Whilst set in a very rural location, we’re not miles from civilisation. We live in what can only be described as a quirky area! With the canal running right past us, there are occasionally narrow boats chugging past, walkers studying maps, as well as the sounds of the steam trains tooting echoing down the valley.

Why not join us? You’ll love it!
