Luxury Holiday Cottages Derbyshire

Another of our luxury holiday cottages located on the edge of the peak district is Billy's Bothy, situated in picturesque Derbyshire within the lovely grounds of Offcote Grange, a historic coaching house dating back to the 1600s. This delightful former workers' bothy has been sympathetically restored to provide holiday accommodation in Derbyshire of luxury and quality. Billy's Bothy is a warm brick built self-catering luxury holiday cottage with attractive arched windows and a feature oak and glass gable end wall which overlooks a private patio, garden area and lush green Derbyshire meadows.

All rooms in this delightful cottage have light beamed ceilings and feature revealed brick walls throughout, giving character, charm and a welcoming ambience when you walk through the door. With magnificent views across open countryside, this luxury cottage nestles peacefully amidst 10 acres of private landscaped gardens with flower meadows and a lake - a tranquil haven in which to relax and unwind, or to get together with friends, family or colleagues. Meals and pampering are available to our guests on request.

Centrally located in the scenic Derbyshire Dales and edging the magnificent Peak District National Park, our luxury holiday cottages are superb for discovering all this fabulous county has to offer. Walk the many beautiful dales, visit the abundance of historical houses, including Chatsworth and Sudbury, or explore the mysterious caves at Castleton. Close by is Carsington Water with its cycle hire and water sports centre. Activities abound around us with paintballing, quad biking, archery, clay pigeon shooting, golf, fishing and tennis amongst the many things to try. A visit to the steam or tramway museums or the thrills and spills of Alton Towers premier theme park is a must. This area promises you a holiday to remember.
