Wetton is a pretty stone village, nestled at the foot of the Wetton Hills above the Dovedale and Manifold valleys in the heart of the Peak District National Park, a few miles north of Ashbourne. Within the village there are 3 small working farms, a local inn, The Royal Oak, and a 14th century church with its six bells founded in six different centuries. The area is perfect for exploring with a network of footpaths and the Dove and Manifold Valleys. For cyclists, the cottage is just a short distance from The Manifold Cycle Trail and the Tissington and High Peak Cycle Trails.
Stone Cottage is a stone-built cottage situated near the centre of this delightful village. This is an ideal location for exploring on foot, with lovely walks from the doorstep, or riding a bike through the many quiet lanes and footpaths of the area. For touring and sightseeing, the nearby attractions of Bakewell or Buxton with their regular markets, the tourist attractions at Matlock, and the unmissable Chatsworth House are all within easy reach, to name a few.

Of all the beauty spots in the Peak District, this western corner where it merges with the Staffordshire Moorlands is one of its hidden gems. The pretty village of Wetton is little changed from a time when most of its cottages were the homes of agricultural labourers, when farming was more labour intensive. The jumble of lush interlocking hills that tumble over one other to form the Manifold valley is one of the natural world’s great wonders, and from nearby Thor’s Cave you’ll get a magnificent bird’s-eye view of the scene that will have you gasping with pleasure (and possibly pain too – it’s a steep-ish climb up).
It’s very easy to just explore: all the footpaths, bridleways, and lanes are clearly marked. The area is perfect for exploring with a network of footpaths and the Dove and Manifold Valleys. The disused cotton mill at nearby Wetton Mill houses a National Trust tea room and is also the starting point for many walks. Cyclists are well catered for with quiet lanes to explore and the disused railway line converted into the Manifold track about 3 miles away at Hulme End, which also hosts the Manifold Valley visitors centre. Nearby Milldale is the start of the downstream walk to the stepping stones at Dovedale and the village of Ilam. Upstream, a quieter river side walk takes you to Hartington just 5 miles away and has a range of shops, pubs and eateries.
The quiet stone village of Wetton, with a population of around 150, houses the 14th century Church of St. Mary and the popular Ye Olde Royal Oak pub which are both near the village green. Just around the corner, is the old school tea room, where homemade cakes are always on the menu!
