The property

Brailsford 3 miles.

A cosy, single-storey, brick-built cottage situated in the grounds of the owners’ home, on the edge of the beautiful village of Kirk Langley, three miles from the village of Brailsford.

This is an ideal base for birdwatchers and walkers, or just for a couple looking for a romantic hideaway.

You enter via a stable door into the cosy open plan living area with a red quarry glazed tile floor and a country cottage decor.

Beyond is a spacious double bedroom with an en-suite walk-in shower.

Both bedroom and living area benefit from lovely uninterrupted views to open countryside.

Outside, there’s a private patio with furniture making for a great place to dine alfresco or to just to sit and watch the lambs frolic.

This walker’s heaven has paths leading right past the boundary so you could opt for your faithful old boots as your only mode of transport for the stay, especially as one of these paths lead to a pub!

If you do wish to venture further afield then the stunning Peak District National Park and the lovely market town of Ashbourne are just a short drive away.

Or if you fancy a day’s shopping or a night at the theatre, Derby city centre is close by.

With countryside peace and tranquillity on offer at the same time as being a lovely base for the townie within you, there’s always plenty on offer whenever you go.
