  • "Lovely cute cottage."

    Very clean and was well equipped. Bedrooms good size and beds comfortable. Beautiful views from the main bedroom. Great driveway space. Would recommend taking slippers as sometimes the downstairs felt a bit cold under foot. There is no local shop to walk to, a drive away of a couple of miles. This wasn't a problem for us as we were out every day and near a shop at some point. We went to 'The Peacock' for our first night to have some dinner which is literally over the road from the property. Delicious food and very welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

  • "As we were first visitors everything was near perfect the only thing not perfect ..."

    As we were first visitors everything was near perfect the only thing not perfect were the mattresses which were very hard very well equipped Very close to pub about 3 metres and deliveries started from 7 in the morning so a lie in would have been impossible but as early rises to us not a problem A fan would have been nice as very very hot in the cottage Reported freezer not working and slight leak to toilet

About the location


Matlock 10 miles; Chatsworth 10 miles; Bakewell 13 miles.

The historic market town of Chesterfield acts as the gateway to the Peak District, and has much to offer visitors. The town is famous for its 14th Century church with "Crooked Spire", twisting curiously from its true centre, while the frequent bustling market days are ideal for exploring the many different specialist shops and stalls which line the old Market Hall and charming Shambles beyond. The town also boasts Queens Park, with its lake, walks and summer bandstand, as well as a museum and theatre. Nearby, the Elizabethan Hardwick Hall is still impressive today, with its 6 grand towers elaborately monogramed with Bess of Hardwick’s initials, overlooking the superb gardens and walled courtyards of the grounds. Also popular is the semi-ruined 17th Century mansion of Bolsover Castle, set high on a wooded hilltop, looking west towards the heights of the Peak District. Chesterfield has a host of other attractions within easy reach, such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, the amenities of Matlock and Bakewell, or the opera at Buxton. An interesting base for a varied break.
