  • "This is a five star apartment with nice design touches, ideally located for Bakewell, Chatsworth and Matlock."

    Coop in local village for shopping needs. Owner on site and very helpful, as it’s a working farm nice to get close up to the Bulls. Plenty of space within the apartment, with outside seating, very comfortable bed and on site parking.

  • "It was a lovely property but why on earth the door between ourselves and the next rooms was left in is beyond me."

    We could see the lights and hear noise through the door which was not very good. Apart from that it was an excellent stay.

About the location


Matlock 7 miles.

The village of Crich (known as Cardale in the hit TV series Peak Practice) is full of character and history, and boasts a number of shops and several pubs. There are walks around the village, and trams (the village is home to the National Tramway Museum) move up the valley to some of the most beautiful views of the Derbyshire Dales. Matlock, 7 miles away, offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as Gulliver’s Kingdom. Magnificent views down 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. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, while to the north are the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park and Haddon Hall, with Carsington Water offering fantastic watersports - not to be missed! Ideal at any time of year!
