Mount Pleasant is near Bakewell, which has numerous cafes, character shops and eateries, approximately 5 minutes away by car, or 45 minutes on foot.
The property is set in superb walking country, with beautiful dales, river walks and villages all around. This includes the famous Eyam plague village, and lively Matlock. There are several great houses to visit within 15 minutes, particularly the superb Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.
There is riding available nearby, and a local pub on the doorstep which is not to be missed. In the immediate area there is a delightful 45-minute walk, starting from your front doorstep, taking you through Over Haddon and along the river with beautiful blue water and a wide variety of local wildlife. The route returns you to the cottage on a footpath which takes you right past the front door of the pub.
