The Little Vicarage Cottage is the perfect place to stay if you want a base for exploring the Peak District. It was just the right size for four people and was cosy and comfortable. Nicky’s personal touches of fresh cut flower, freshly baked (warm) bread, jam and cake made us feel at home from the get go. We will definitely be coming again.
Located in the lovely village of Wetton which has a super tea room in the old school house. Fantastic local walks to Thors Cave, Wetton Hill, Dovedale and the Manifold Valley. The cottage is well appointed and has everything you need for a great stay in the Peak District, and a warm welcome from Nicky with her homemade cake, jam and bread. You could take a walk across the fields to Alstonefield for a great Sunday lunch at The George pub. A good location for discovering the beautiful Peak District.
Nicky’s cottage is one of the nicest we have stayed in. It is a completely self contained annexe to the main vicarage which has been beautifully rebuilt with much love and great attention to detail. The cottage is warm and extremely generously equipped and furnished - everything you need for a real home from home stay and spotlessly clean. The gardens surrounding Little Vicarage are extensive and are a beautiful place to sit in the sunshine.
Wetton is a lovely little village set in the glorious Peak District with so many beautiful walks right from the cottage door that you could easily leave your car on the driveway. Further afield are so many beautiful places to visit, this area has something for everyone with the lovely old market town of Ashbourne just a few miles away should you need provisions or a spot of very smart retail therapy!
We shall definitely be back and the sooner the better!
Oh yes, forgot to mention Nicky’s lovely homemade bread, cake and Jam!

What a relaxing break! This is the second time we have stayed at Nicky’s place in the lovely Peak District village of Wetton.
The first time we came, we spent some nights at the B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there and vowed to return after spending a few days in the autumn exploring the Peak District.
The breakfast is rather marvellous – as was the homemade cake on arrival. The rooms were large and warm – as was the welcome from Nicky and her two dogs.
The second time we visited we chose to stay in the cottage which is an annexe to the main house. This was charming and it was lovely to relax in a warm, well-appointed and equipped space.
Nicky is a super host, with lots of good ideas about where to go and which tearooms to visit – whether it is for an all-day breakfast, lunch or tea. We chose to eat each evening at the local pub which served great food and has the benefit of only being a few paces away from the B&B.
This is a beautiful place, and ideally placed for access to the Peak District. For walkers of all ages, there are a huge number of choices with starting points just a short drive away. There are also some lovely towns in short distance away. We will certainly be back!
