Ever spent a night in the police station?

The Old Police Station is an idyllic holiday cottage sleeping 2-4 people, offering self-catering accommodation in the lovely valley of Edale, close to Castleton, in the Peak District National Park. The cottage has stunning views of the nearby iron age hill fort known as Mam Tor as well as down the valley to Loose Hill. Modern conversion featuring Wifi, wet shower room, flat screen TVs and underfloor heating.

Edale and the Hope Valley lie in the centre of the Peak District, conveniently situated for walking from the door to Kinder Scout, mountain biking, climbing and all types of outdoor activities. It is also a perfect location from which to explore all the major attractions of the Peak District, such as Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Dove Dale, Castleton caverns etc.
The cottage is well served by local amenities. It is close to a railway station (on the Manchester – Sheffield line) and in the Village centre (2 minutes walk away) there is a small shop, a great cafe and two pubs, both of which serve food.

The cottage is newly converted for 2012

open plan kitchen diner with sofa room to the right

This is the sofa room which can be used as a relaxing lounge with the double doors open to the kitchen diner,  or the sofas make comfortable single beds

Or both sofas pull out to make what my kids call a bedroom

The views from the dining area are simply stunning and the big windows here and in the kitchen are south facing.

 The shower room is a modern wet room with a 10kw shower, there is underfloor heating throughout the cottage  but it feels extra luxurious and warm underfoot in the shower.
And this is the bedroom, it can be set up either as a king size double bed or split to make two singles.

great views all around, perfect for walking from the door
