Button Cottage is located in the hamlet of Wensley in the Peak District National Park. The detached cottage is formed of workers cottages built into the hill and was converted into its current layout in the 1980s but retains original features. During renovations, buttons were discovered in the foundations which gave the cottage its name.
The cottage sleeps up to six people in three well-furnished and comfortable double rooms and has two bathrooms both upstairs, a well-equipped kitchen and utility room and comfortable living / dining room and off-street parking in a garage. It is ideally suited for families or groups of friends for short breaks and longer holidays and is available all year round.
It is 5 minutes from Matlock and Matlock Bath (Matlock Farm Park, Heights of Abraham, caves). Bakewell, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House within 10 - 15 minutes drive. Alton Towers is only 45 mins by car!
