LOCATION

Park View Cottage is a holiday cottage in Glossop, adjoining the village of Old Glossop in Derbyshire is perfect for your getaway.

 

Boasting the beautiful Manor Park - directly opposite the cottage.  Perfect for a lovely stroll especially in the Formal Gardens.  Ideal for walking dogs and has a fenced-in area (Training Area) to the rear of the park, which is very useful if you're not confident letting your dog off-lead or if the park is particularly busy.

Lovely walks close by - including numerous reservoir walks and for those wanting something a little more challenging without going too far, Shire Hill, visible from the rear of the property is a lovely, rewarding walk, steep in parts but with wonderful views when you reach the top.

For those wishing to go further, head up to Bleaklow, maybe visit the B29 Superfortress Crash Site.  If you're not happy to try navigating your way alone you could try a Guided Walk.
