Homepage of Rainbows End Cottage

Welcome to the home page for Rainbows End holiday Cottage. Leave behind the stress and hassle of everyday life and escape to a relaxing break at our cottage in the heart of the Peak District National Park.


Situated in the peaceful hamlet of Blackwell between Buxton and Bakewell and near to Taddington. The cottage is nestled in a large garden it shares with our house, with many walks direct from the doorstep.


** UPDATE** As many of our regulars will know we have been planning to retire for a couple of years now.  We expect that to happen at the end of 2017.  Over the 18 enjoyable years we've been running the cottage we've met some great people who we now see as friends and had some fun times. We would like to thank all our guests who have stayed with us over these years and wish you all great holidays in the future.

As we are finishing our custodianship of Rainbows End we are very pleased to be handing over to a lovely couple and we leave them to introduce themselves:


re: Rainbows End Holiday Cottage, Blackwell in the Peak.

Rita and Robin have kindly offered to introduce us to you.  We are Kath and John Henderson and we are hoping to move to Rainbows End early 2018.

We are planning to continue to offer the cottage (Coach House) as a holiday let. Whilst John will still be working full time, I will be around most of the time to ensure that your stay with us goes well.

Our moving date is not finalised as yet, however, we anticipate taking bookings in time for Easter 2018 (i.e. from Saturday 24th March).

We are currently working through details in relation to booking arrangements, website etc, therefore if you would like to contact us before everything is 'up and running' you can use my current email address or mobile number, please see below.

We really hope that you consider staying with us in the future, we aim to continue to offer the great service previously provided by Rita and Robin

Best wishes,

Kath and John Henderson.
