The property

A beautiful renovation of a stone-built Grade II listed Arkwright Estate worker’s cottage in Cromford.

This charming detached property is set back from the road with great views and lots of space inside and out.

A fantastic setting for a couple’s romantic break with no debates about designated drivers as Cromford’s fine eateries and inns are all within a short stroll.

Kick your boots off in the porch and step into a tastefully furnished and surprisingly large sitting room with exposed beams, original quarry tile flooring and a glowing woodburning stove in an impressive stone fireplace.

The modernised kitchen and separate dining room has everything you need for a cosy dinner together.

Upstairs there is an equally beautiful spacious bedroom with king-size bed, chaise longue, window seat and the original fire place with beautiful stencilling work.

After a hard day exploring the Peaks, there’s a lovely spa bath to soak away any accumulated aches and pains.

There’s a delightful landscaped garden with fantastic uninterrupted countryside views belying the village central location, a simply lovely place to dine alfresco and a useful outbuilding (formerly the piggery) is a secure place to store bikes, handy to know given the proximity of Carsington Water, High Peak, Monsal and Tissington Cycle Trails.

Cromford offers a selection of quality pubs, shops and cafés, as well as Arkwright’s Cromford Mill and canal, a world heritage site.

The area boasts an abundance of attractions such as Gulliver's Kingdom, the nearby Peak District Mining Museum and splendid Chatsworth House.

Visitors can take a ride on the Heights of Abraham cable car and take in the views in style, whilst the more active are catered for with plentiful walking around the Derwent Valley and the White Peak.

Something for everyone all year round.
