Guest Reviews


    • “Great cottage, shame about the wardrobe space!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay with everything on hand that we could need. The only downside was the wardrobe space. As we were only there for three nights it wasn't too big a problem but had we been staying longer it could have proved problematic! The cottage is characterful and conveniently located a stones throw from the a6, a direct route from Derby through to Bakewell and beyond. We know the area well and enjoyed renewing our acquaintance with a variety of places including Carsington Water, Ashbourne and the Museum of Childhood at Sudbury Hall, a 25 minute drive away.”

About the location


Matlock 5 miles

The village of Whatstandwell sits beside the River Derwent, located close to its better known neighbours of Cromford, Matlock, Matlock Bath and the popular village of Crich. The area, located in the Peak District National Park, is full of history, with the National Tramway Museum a particular favourite amongst visitors to the area. Matlock, just a few miles away, offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as Gulliver's Kingdom. Magnificent views of the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show caves, nature trail, water gardens and owl maze. The nearby High Peak Cycle Trail provides a wonderful experience while further to the north the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park, Haddon Hall and Carsington Water are not to be missed!
