Welcome to Postcard Cottages, John and I (Vanessa) have taken (slightly) early retirement from our careers in Medical Sales and the Agricultural Supply Trade to live our dream by moving from Leicestershire to the beautiful hills and dales of Derbyshire. We started by coming on short holidays here over many years, just like you are thinking of doing and fell in love with the beautiful rolling green hillside, the limestone walls, numerous sheep, pretty villages and friendly folk. Watch out this area is addictive it could happen to you.
We now have 2 properties, the first we opened in 2015 No3 Club Cottage at Biggin by Hartington is a charming old limestone shepherd end of terrace 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 then loved 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.
January 2017 sees the opening of “The Old Co-op Barn” 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 blankets for curtains. John even made the whole kitchen out of used pallets which were delivered to site during the renovations and I painted them to look like an old garden potting shed. There are many more surprises to be seen and used such as the double ended bath in the upstairs bedroom. Check it out on our gallery on the web page.
Also, the whole renovation process has been filmed by Channel 4 TV for a new renovation show called Big House Little House to be shown from Feb 17 for 20 weeks 4pm on a Saturday. We hope you like it, it was good fun being filmed and there should be some funny moments, hopefully they will not be too rude about John and I.
