Monks Retreat Holiday Cottages

Our guests tell us we have the best location for country cottage holidays in the Peak District, and we think you will agree.

The monks of old chose to build a monastery here, although they are long gone, the dales remain much the same and will inspire you. Abbots Abode sleeps 6, Friars Folly sleeps 4, Monks Memories sleeps 2.

Sitting on a south facing hillside where Monks Dale meets Millers Dale, a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, our lovingly restored old oak beamed  limestone cottages have extensive views across the dales to towering rocks and peaceful fields and hills.

A 300 yard stroll down a leafy lane brings you to our local, the Anglers Rest pub nestling by the beautiful river. You can sit here with a pint or a glass of wine and a good meal and watch the trout jumping and water fowl play in the perfect setting.

Tideswell with its many hidden alleyways, cafes, traditional shops and magnificent ‘Cathedral of the Peak’ is just 2 miles away.
