Welcome to Lea Cottage in Foolow - Header 1


To Lea Cottage


Lea Cottage can be found in the small picturesque village of Foolow situated in Derbyshire and the Peak District National Park, 2 miles west of the historical plague village of Eyam and 6 miles north of Bakewell famous for its puddings and tarts.


The cottage, formerly the tractor barn and hayloft, forms part of the main house,  Kirk Lea,  a Grade II listed limestone barn.  Lovingly restored by the Goulder family who still live in the village, it has been welcoming guests for over 12 years.

You enter the cottage through the large arch picture window which helps flood the lounge/dining room with light.  This large open room with high ceilings and exposed beams is tastefully decorated with warm tones of cream and green which give the cottage a warm homely feel making it the perfect place to settle down after a long day exploring the many delights of the Peak District.

The galley kitchen is light and bright and has everything you will need for your stay.  A feature of this room is the high ceilings, exposed beams and the original open stone steps which take you up to the main bedroom.  


The large bedroom with king size bed is carpeted and has a light and airy feel due to the high vaulted ceilings.  The exposed beams and fireplace give this room a true cottage feel.  Great care has been taken to ensure the mattress,  bed linen and pillows are to the highest standard to satisfy everyone's needs. 


There is a newly refurbished compact tiled ensuite shower room with a white suite with chrome fittings and a power shower.  A generous supply of large towels and toiletries is supplied for your convenience.


Lea Cottage has a private garden overlooking the village green available to guests situated across the road from the cottage with garden seating where you can watch the world go by.  Directly outside the cottage is a wooden bench where you can view the sun setting.

Please remember that Foolow is a working village and as such you will very much encounter true village life.  We are fortunate to have a  local pub The Bulls Head which is a short stroll from the cottage offering an exceptional high standard of food. 

Much of Foolow dates from the 18th and 19th century, growing around the village pond and green with its medieval cross and bull ring.  The cross bears the date 1868 on its plinth, this being the date ait was removed from the site where the chapel now stands and placed in its present position.


Both St Hugh’s Church and the Wesleyan Reform Church both date from the 19th Century.
