  • "The bathroom layout could be precarious, especially for the more elderly client ( e."

    G. steps up to basin with no hand rail) Privacy could be improved ( just a thin curtain screening currently provided!!) Clients mat prefer to have more overall control of heating arrangements - currently this control appears to be governed by preset timer elsewhere The owner was friendly and helpful.

  • "Very nice, quiet & peaceful place, perfect for a break away from City life."

    Perhaps a little attention needed between lets, some milk on arrival would be nice, and topping up soap & hand wash too. Apart from those tiny items a very enjoyable stay.

  • "This was a fabulous find for us."

    The tranquility was just perfect and the cottage completely aligned for our needs a mini 'home from home'. Offering a completely different landscape, within an hour's car journey made it an ideal short getaway with trips to Carsington Water and Matlock Bath. We would certainly recommend Spout Barn and the Amber Valley to friends and will definitely be visiting again.

About the location


Wirksworth 3.5 miles; Matlock 8 miles.

Shottle is a small hamlet located in lovely rolling countryside, on the southern borders of the Peak District National Park. Nearby Wirksworth is a small, charming market town on the edge of the White Peak, and is full of character, with many buildings of architectural interest, including its magnificent parish church. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient "jitties" and courtyards, and the National Stone Centre, as well as the delightful surrounding countryside including nearby Carsington Water and the High Peak Trail. Rock climbing and cycling can be enjoyed here at every level, and there is good walking all around. Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and Wirksworth combines this tradition with a lively carnival. The annual Arts festival attracts international performers of every kind. Beautiful Chatsworth House, Shottle Hall and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath with its spectacular cable car, the newly restored Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom. Only 2 miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is not to be missed. A great location for a relaxing holiday.
