Holiday Rental House
Meri Cottage is right at the heart of the village of Hartington. Built in 1777 it retains much of its original charm but is also warm and very comfortable. It has three bedrooms to sleep six and there is plenty of room in the main bedroom for a cot as well. With substantial rooms on three floors it has plenty of space for the whole family. Settle down for the evening on one of the sofas in front of the living room multi-fuel stove with the tv/dvd player for entertainment, should you need it. Alternatively spend some time catching the evening sun with a glass of wine on the secluded terrace or amongst the shrubs in the garden. The kitchen has every convenience, including a dishwasher and a washing machine, and also boasts a small seating area to enjoy breakfast or a morning coffee.

Don't forget the village shop is just next door if you have a sudden craving for croissants and home-made marmalade. When you come back from exploring the national park the bathroom boasts a large bath with plenty of hot water in the tank if you have time or a luxurious fitted shower cabinet if you are going out for the evening. If you want to keep in touch with work or your social network during your stay the cottage has a free broadband connection for guests with wi-fi.More

About the neighbourhood
Hartington is a lovely village in the heart of the White Peak area of Britain's first national park. The village and the beautiful River Dove nearby are famous for their role in the history of angling. Although small, Hartington has thriving shops, tea-shops, an award-winning post office, hotels and pubs. The local limestone is everywhere creating a warm, mellow tone and the buildings, mostly dating from the eighteenth century flowering of the village, are very much in sympathy with each other and the Peak District environment.
