The property

Beeston 5 miles.

Lavender Cottage is situated in a private cul-de-sac in a conservation area within the picturesque, medieval village of Stanton by Dale.

The village has a cricket pitch, a medieval church, children's playground, Erewash Golf Course, two good pubs serving home-cooking and pedigree ales, and charming tearooms in the old school providing homemade lunches and cakes.

This heart-warming retreat is perfect for couples and families alike seeking a rural location yet halfway between the bustling cities of Nottingham and Derby, an easy drive away from the wonderful Peak District National Park.

Upon entering the property, be welcomed into an open-plan living space where you can sink into the plush sofas and put your feet up after a long day, and tune into the TV with a DVD player so you can watch all your favourite classic films or use the CD player to listen to music with the woodburning stove keeping you toasty throughout the evening.

There are dining areas in the kitchen and the adjoining sitting room providing plenty of space for gathering over a home-cooked meal and a refreshing beverage.

The kitchen has been fitted to a high-standard, housing all the essential appliances you could possibly need during a week-long stay, including a dishwasher as an added benefit.

As the evening draws to a close, follow the steps up to the first floor where a king-size and double bedroom await, with fresh bed linens and a range of furniture for storing your personal belongings.

Throw open the doors to find a gravelled court yard with tables and chairs to enjoy the last glimpses of sunshine during a summer's evening.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, make the most of the being centrally located between the bustling cities of Nottingham and Derby, both rich with a popular tourist hub.

Discover the National Trust property of Kedleston Hall, Derby Museum and Art Gallery and a variety of independent shops, supermarkets, pubs and cafés in case you fancy a spot of lunch or picking up a souvenir for your loved one’s back home.

There is a rich network of footpaths that radiate from the village with undulating countryside of fields, meadows, bluebell woods and a famous cave, ideal for horse riders, hikers, runners and cyclists.

For more history and culture, visit Nottingham Castle Museum, the National Trust Grade I listed building Calke Abbey, Art Gallery and Wollaton park, as well as the ancient City of Caves.

Further afield is the beautiful Peak District National Park, home to a wonderful nature reserve such as Dovedale, ideal for all manner of walking, hiking and mountain biking opportunities.

Lavender Cottage is a wonderful base for a family seeking a traditional Derbyshire country getaway.

About the location


Nottingham 7.5 miles; Derby 8.7 miles; Loughborough 15.3 miles

This small village and civil parish lies in the South East of Derbyshire. This quaint village retains its unspoilt charm. The Stanhope Arms and the Chequers Inn are the two watering holes situated within the village. During the second world war, there was a shortage of barbers in the local area, so the landlord used to cut customers’ hair, while they enjoyed a refreshing pint or two! A deep history surrounding the past industrialisation of the area lies at the Stanton Ironworks company, which in the 1960's joined with Staveley Ironworks, together housing 7,000 workers manufacturing manhole covers and concrete street lamps. Also in the village, there is a plaque commemorating aviation pioneer Hugh Oswald Short who, with his two brothers, built some of the first British aircraft in history. There are charming cottages, almshouses, a traditional parish church and village hall, cricket ground and even a medieval cross overlooking a village green. The city of Nottingham is nearby, with a vibrant culture centred on its rich heritage and sporting glory. See live performances, excellent sport, nightlife and art in a series of venues, with Michelin star restaurants and high street shopping to indulge in. Derby lies to the west of the village, on the banks of the River Derwent, hosting a wealth of arts, culture and history, as well as festivals and events on throughout the year. The Peak District offers walking and outdoor activities in abundance, along with delightful market towns and villages to be explored.
