Approached from the courtyard, the Coach House is entered through the cart opening, now fully glazed to let in light. Behind are the fields leading up to Speedwell Cavern and Winnats Pass.
On the right is the door of the boot room – a drying room with a large sink – particularly useful if you have had a muddy day of walking or cycling. On the left is the staircase – once used by the coachman this now leads to your own terrace (see below).
Once inside you will find underfloor heating (upstairs and down), high speed wifi and easily operated blinds for the large front windows when you need some privacy.
Downstairs the cottage is open plan. The key features are the original hand made brick lining, the reopened old slit windows and the views to the hills and fields beyond.
The spacious open plan design allows separate dining and seating areas. In response to feedback the monk's bench in the picture has been replaced with a sofa.
The kitchen is fully fitted, including washer/dryer and dishwasher.
The window from the sink looks out to Mam Tor – some may want to do washing up rather than use the dishwasher!
Upstairs is a double room, a twin room and a shower room.
Both bedrooms have views over the fields. The double room, with a king size bed and fitted wardrobe has access onto …
… the terrace. Approached from the bedroom or the outside stairs, this is an ideal tranquil place for morning coffee, evening drinks – or indeed anytime.
