What to Expect

As the name implies, you are in a rural setting in the heart of the Peak District National Park with a pub and a shop a two-minute walk from the door.

The market town of Ashbourne is just under seven miles away from this period cottage for two dating back to the 1600s. You can close your door to the rest of the world and cosy up on the sofa in front of the wood-burning stove.

In warmer months, there is alfresco French furniture in a wildflower garden or a picnic bench under an age-old oak on an expanse of manicured lawn.

Things To Do in Parwich

A jumble of quaint cottages nestled against a lush hillside, Parwich has all the charm of a typical High Peaks’ village. The Sycamore Inn serves food and real ales and serves as a village shop too and the Royal British Legion Club that is open to non-members.

Plum in the middle of one of the most scenic walks in the High Peaks, Parwich is a pit-stop in a four-mile walk that starts and ends in the village of Tissington. Park close to Tissington’s St Mary’s. There is plenty to do and see here before or after your walk. There is the grand Tissington Hall; you can lunch at Herbert’s Tea Room and stock up on homemade fudge at Edward & Vintage’s old fashioned sweet shop. Give yourself about two hours if you wish to complete the walk at a leisurely pace.

Just eight miles of Parwich is Carsington, an idyllic expanse of water that offers horse-riding, fishing, walking and cycle routes, and birdwatching. Its open waters, muddy shoreline and native woodland offer natural habits for birds such as kingfishers, grebes and buzzards. Visit the wildlife centre where you can learn about the birds that make Carsington Water their home. There is also an RSPB shop on site. Hire a bike from the visitor centre and go on an eight-mile waymarked trail or hire a canoe or kayak and take to the water. In season fly fishing is popular here, too, for brown and rainbow trout that you can catch from a boat from March to November.

Last Word

This period cottage has been inhabited for 500 years and you will be surrounded by reminders of this such as the open fire with its stone surround, the deep sill windows, and the low beams overhead. Combined with all these original features are creature comforts such as underfloor heating and a wet room.

Other than the fact you are in a traditional High Peaks’ village, the historic market town of Ashbourne is just under eight miles away. Make use of the courtesy bikes provided to you and cycle there where you can immerse yourself in a myriad of winding cobbled streets that play host to 200 listed buildings such as alms and genteel townhouse, as well as fine coaching inns dating back to Tudor times. Ashbourne is known as the Gateway to Dovedale with its spectacular limestone landscapes.

There is no doubt you will want to explore as much of this part of the Peaks as possible and there are several ways to do it. Other than cycling, there is horse riding and boat trips on nearby Carsington Water. If, however, you would prefer to spend your break unwinding in and near the cottage, you have your private wildflower garden with alfresco dining. French-style table and chairs that is going to provide all the tranquillity you need.
