Monks Retreat Holiday Cottages, Millers Dale, Buxton, Derbyshire

A host of wild birds visit our extensive terraced gardens where there are elevated view points and quiet corners in which to sit.
The cottages and gardens are equipped with barbeques and garden furniture and face south, getting the best of the sunshine all day long.
Each of the cottages is individual in character and maintains its own privacy but together they make an ideal base for a larger party or group of families and the dining area in Abbots Abode is large enough for the whole of such a group to relax over a meal together.
