A large detached stone house built in the late 1700s for the manager of the former Alum Works, Low Peak stands in an isolated position on the cliff side with outstanding views across to the Bay. The cottage is comfortably furnished in a period style, using traditional and antique furniture in keeping with its age. It enjoys an enclosed garden which is a delightful place to sit on warm days.

    Our time at Low Peak was absolutely unique, a chance to connect with a very special landscape, to live in it and feel it change through the day, all in comfort and in the security of knowing that every detail had been taken care of. Only problem - for the dogs life may never be as good again ....
