Nature and tranquillity surround you when meandering down the canal. For walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, there are numerous trails across the Goyt Valley, Kinder Scout and Edale, and for those seeking something a little more challenging, the beginning of the Pennine Way is nearby.

The kitchen offers an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave, with plenty of storage to store your groceries. Head upstairs to the master bedroom which offers a double bed, complimenting bedroom furniture and smart TV. There is a shower room with a walk in shower and WC. The second bedroom offers access to the garden and has a double sofa bed, which can either be used as comfy seating to sit and relax whilst overlooking the garden or as a double sofa bed at night.

Outside the fully enclosed garden offers a wonderful space to sit and catch the summer sun overlooking the field behind the cottage. There is patio furniture where you can look forward to relaxing and enjoying a meal outside. There is on-road parking to the front of the cottage (subject to availability).

Great for dog owners, playing field down the road & paved rear courtyard with tall fencing makes it very secure. Location wise, Hayfield village 15 min drive.

The Post Box Cottage is a lovely, comfortable, modern cottage. Everything you need for a break away from home. It is in a fantastic location, near to walks and local pubs. A short walk into Whaley Bridge one way and Chinley the other. Beautiful scenery in every direction. We will definitely be returning to stay here next year, if not sooner.

Post box cottage was an absolute delight. Modern interior that suited the cottage well. Had everything you could need. One minute walk to the canal basin and the navigation Inn.

Superbly modernised cottage. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds and lovely relaxing back room with door to garden. Amazing patio with furniture, BBQ and fire pit. Wonderful stay and would highly recommend. Go to the Beehive at Combs for a meal - brilliant, but do book ahead as they are very busy.

This is a perfect modernisation of a small terrace cottage that is bigger than it looks in the photos. Artwork and furniture not to our taste but the cooling tile floor downstairs was most welcome in the heatwave. There is a little traffic noise from the B road outside but much more from the busy A6 just across the valley.

The property was lovely and cosy and beutufully done, very clean and comfortable, with everything you need. A nicer village pub would be good, the navigation wasn't too good, the bar man and lad that brought out food were very scruffy dressed so really put me off. Plenty of places to drive to though.

Lovely cottage, perfect for a relaxing few days with the dog. On nice days we sat in the garden & it was cosy enough just to watch a film inside when the weather wasn't so great.
