Windmill Farm - 5-star holiday cottages in the English countryside

Situated on the fringes of the Peak District, Weathericks self-catering holiday cottages offer premium accommodation surrounded by stunning scenery and historic market towns. Whether you are looking for a relaxing break or a luxury base to explore the Peaks, the crofts provide a unique and comfortable setting.

The larger of the two cottages, Bradstones was once a barn used to house cattle. Renovation has transformed the steading into a luxurious and spacious cottage whilst retaining its character.

The stable door opens into a large, open-plan kitchen complete with a dining table and chairs. The kitchen is fitted with hand-made pine units and all the appliances needed to make you feel right at home. The large wooden dining table allows easy access around the kitchen.

Into the sitting room, you are greeted by two large sofas, a coffee table and a large stone fireplace, cast iron fire with a gas coal effect stove. The beamed roof and flag stoned wall and stairway maintain the history of the building and a set of large doors lead into a small furnished patio.

The traditionally decorated stairway (take care when going up and down) leads to a bright landing off which are the bedrooms and bathroom.

In the smaller cottage, Weathericks, you'll find a full range of appliances and plenty of storage space. The kitchen holds a large dining table that sits six. The beamed ceiling retains the character and history of this old barn at no cost to the luxury.

The sitting room's main feature is the gritstone fireplace with a gas coal effect log burning stove. The large sofa offers beautiful views out the patio doors towards Carsington Water reservoir. The patio is furnished with a table and chairs and leads into the shared lawn area…

„Jean! We loved it... Roses, wine, wildflower meadow, our own peacock and its love affair with the pleasant, and dinner outside under the moon; you didn't forget a thing! We could live here forever. You've done an amazing job with these two cottages - thank you so much!”

Our language school regularly organizes intensive language courses with native teachers to Weathericks and Bradstones cottages. 
But if you just want to spend some time in the English countryside with your family, Jean Hurdle, our host would also welcome you to her farm. 
You can find more information about it on the following website: www.weathericks.co.uk

From November, 2013, a low-cost airline, Jet2 flies from Budapest to East Midlands airport which is just a stone's throw from the cottages.
