Briar Cottage is a great location being close to both Matlock and Chesterfield. The cottage was originally a barn and nestles in the hill side overlooking beautiful countryside. The village of Alton is right on the edge of the Peak District, with a working cattle farm at its heart. We have a small dog, Bea a cat called Tilly and chickens who provide fresh and tasty eggs for breakfast. The cottage is full of charm and character providing an atmosphere of peace & tranquillity.
