Welcome to Postcard Cottages

Beautiful Derbyshire Holiday Cottages for you to relax in.

Postcard Cottages is a lifestyle venture for John & Vanessa. Our aim is to offer you delightful "pretty as a postcard" cottages in fantastic surroundings where you can relax and have fun. Have a look at our cottages and see if you can choose between them; a traditional shepherds cottage or stunningly individual barn conversion.

The choice is yours...

No 3 Club Cottages

No.3 Club Cottage

No.3 Club Cottage at Biggin-by-Hartington is a charming old limestone shepherd end of terrace cottage and it captured our hearts as soon as we saw the stunning rolling views front and back and the safe south facing enclosed gardens. The cottage wood burning stove in the cosy lounge, the spacious kitchen diner with upcycled and renovated furniture makes it a special place to visit and unwind. We love the enchanting enclosed wooden staircase and the 2 bedrooms and bathroom with their special views upstairs.

We have ensured there is full range of modern facilities for your every comfort and need. We hope you like it as much as we do.

The Old Co-op Barn

The Old Co-op Barn is in the village of Brassington our second property. This has been renovated over 14 weeks during Autumn 2016. The Old Co-op barn is so called because it used to store agricultural items for the old co-op store in the village and has been called the old co-op barn ever since when. We have kept this theme and you will see dustbin lids, potato baskets and ladders used as light fittings, old sacks and picnic blanket curtains.

The barn renovation has been extremely challenging and fulfilling as we have been followed from start to finish by Channel 4 for their new series Big House Little House. This is a new renovation programme due to be screened in spring 2017 weekly on Saturdays at 4.00pm. Let's hope it looks good!
