Things To Do in Butterton

Follow the stream that runs behind the cottage that will take you into the centre of the village and straight to the door of the Black Lion Inn. It is famous for its reasonably priced posh pub grub such as the crab, leek and clotted cream pasty and the beetroot and tofu burger. To walk off your meal, take the scenic 1.8-mile route to Wetton Mill, a National Trust property that is a starting point of some of the numerous rambles the region has to offer. The five-mile Wetton Mill Circular is the most popular and it takes in the Manifold Way, a disused railway line making it a pretty even trail. Back at the mill, the dogs and younger set can paddle in the stream while you rest your weary feet and have a refreshing cuppa and slice of cake at the on-site tearoom.

Just outside the village of Wetton is the magnificent Thor’s Cave, set in a steep limestone crag. Once home to our pre-historic ancestors from the Stone Age 11,000 years ago, excavations have found stone tools and even amber beads and bronze items from as far back as the Roman period.

For a more up to date location, a visit to Chatsworth House, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, has to be on the cards and it is less than a 40-minute drive from the cottage. Closer still is the market town of Bakewell, only half an hour’s drive away. Mondays are especially appealing because two of the town’s squares are given over to a stall market, and an entertaining livestock auction takes place across the river at the same time.

Last Word

This is a perfect cottage for a group of friends or a family looking to enjoy a holiday that is all about the great outdoors. While you languish in the perpetual trail of bubbles in the hot tub, you can take in the scenery beyond Hoobrook’s lawned garden, knowing that you are slap bang in the middle of one of the country’s most stunning national parks.

Your every need is catered for in this delightful refurbished cottage and as the nights draw in there is plenty of space for all of you to sink into the comfy sofas in front of a log burning stove. Those who love to cook the kitchen has it all and the owners provide a generous welcome hamper to get you started for that much-awaited family meal.

Alton Towers theme park is only 17 minutes away by car if you or the kids are seeking some adrenaline or even a walk around its stunning gardens. However, there are plenty of natural attractions right on your doorstep to provide thrills and spills. Within walking distance, you can marvel at caves and splash through a stream that trickles over the main street’s cobbles. Butterton is a “Doubly Thankful” village so called because all its men returned safely from both WWI and WWII and you will be more than doubly thankful that you’ve chosen this location.
