Shires Rest  Sleeps 2

A fully equipped self catering holiday cottage in the Peak District.


Shires Rest conversion to a holiday cottage was completed in 2002, and has been inspected by the English Tourist Board. We are very proud that this delightful holiday cottage achieved and maintains a '4 stars' quality rating. As the name suggests it was originally the home of the farms Shire horse but with the ascent of tractors it had been redundant for many years - occasionally housing a few lambs in spring.


It has lent itself to conversion very well offering a lovely spacious two-storey character holiday cottage for 2 guests and is beautifully furnished throughout with pine.


Upstairs Shires Rest has a double bedroom & shower room including shower, toilet and washbasin, whilst downstairs features a lovely beamed lounge with stone mantel over a cosy living flame cast iron stove giving the feel of a real fire without the work! The comfortable suite is ideal to unwind in and converts to a double bed for any extra guests. TV, DVD, Radio/CD/Cassette are provided for your entertainment.


The spacious light oak fitted kitchen houses an electric cooker, microwave, fridge with freezer box, dishwasher and all the utensils of a working kitchen. A Pine dining table and chairs grace this lovely kitchen.


If you are looking for a quality assured self catering holiday cottage in the Peak District of Derbyshire we are sure that Shires Rest is the place for you.


We are proud of our cottage, which is personally serviced to maintain a high standard. We are on site should you need anything.
