Set in the beautful Derbyshire Countryside, the Cow Shed offers a cosy relaxing hideaway away from home.  Having undergone a complete refurbishment our accommodation sleeps up to 2 adults.  Suitable for couples, the cottage has a rustic feel, with a touch of luxury.  

Built in the 1600s, The Cow Shed is attached to Littlemoor Farm and was, as the name suggests, originally the cow shed.  Situated on a quiet country lane within the hamlet of Riber, the towns of Matlock & Matlock Bath are only a short distance by car.  We are ideally situated for walkers and cyclists alike and can offer advice on great places to explore, visit and eat. Located on the edge of the Peak District we have the best of both  worlds, conveniently placed for local attractions and shops, but off the beaten track.  Your only neighbours will be the cottage owners and possibly the cows and sheep in the fields around.

The surrounding countryside offers some beautiful and undiscovered walks, with the village of Lea being located approximately 1 mile away.  Local amenities include a traditional country pub, offering fantastic food and ale, Lea Gardens and tea rooms, two art galleries, a post office and an award winning butchers.  


Also within walking distance is the hamlet of Dethick, steeped in history, this beautiful little settlement is well worth a look and is conveniently en-route to the pub.
