Birds Nest Cottage garden

We have a large woodland garden for you to enjoy. A quarter if an acre (c.1000 sq metres), the garden is divided by a large brook that is fast flowing but has a regular visiting set of ducks and the occasional heron keeping an eye out for fish! Plenty of seating areas available should you want to be in the sun or shade and we have recently added a bright new summer house if you want to get out of the sun or rain. We also have a barbecure if you wish to do some outdoor eating. Check out the updated pictures below.

Wonderful flat. The garden is a hidden beauty, enjoyable to explore even in rainy autumn. You can view the brook which runs through the garden from the large comfy bed, which really enhances the atmosphere. I would highly recommend the birds nest.

Beautiful base for walking in the Peak District. The Garden Retreat is nicely furnished with lots of thoughtful touchs - blankets on the sofas for snuggling into after a long walk Would definitely book here again and would recommend to friends.

The Garden Retreat is truly that - a beautiful home away from home set in a gorgeous garden. The Retreat was clean, cozy, spacious and well-appointed. We wil happily stay again!

The Garden Retreat is a wonderful place to stay. It’s a lovely apartment set in a beautiful garden. It provided the perfect location for us; combining going to see Manchester with doing outdoor stuff in the Peak District. We’d love to stay again.

An amazing host, the property is fabulous and with a beautiful garden to enjoy. Great location with a private entrance Highly recommended to anybody looking for a break with easy access to the moors and to Manchester.
