  • "Cottage was beautiful, very nicely decorated and comfortable."

    Hot tub was great! Perfect location in the village with bus stop and pub in walking distance. Only downside was the lack of a hairdryer, but after messaging the owners they dropped one round.

  • "A lovely cottage."

    A hidden gem. It was a special anniversary and the owners recommended where to have a special meal and were on hand if needed. The bedrooms are fantastic. We will be returning.

    Hi Michael, Thank you so much for your lovely and positive feedback. We are so happy you have all enjoyed your stay at Toll Bar. We really look forward to seeing you all again. Shada and Paul x Property Owner

  • "Our stay at the Toll Bar cottage was excellent."

    Really nice house, extremely comfortable and what a location! Hot tub being the icing on the cake. Would highly recommend as a base for touring the Peak District

  • "The property is in a great location, close to shops, restaurants, pubs and walking routes."

    We mainly booked the cottage for the location and the use of the hot tub which was obviously welcome after walking. It is in a nice spot with the garden looking over the river. The garden room looks to be a new addition and was a lovely place to sit, although there were only two chairs so more chairs would be an advantage as the property is for six people. Also the main bathroom did not have a mirror. The bedrooms were lovely with good bedding and furniture. I would recommend this cottage although there are a few low beams and low doors to be aware of so a couple of us that were over 6 foot had to make sure we decked our heads!

    Hi Debbie, Thank you so much for your lovely and positive feedback. We are so happy you have all enjoyed your stay at Toll Bar. We have now placed a mirror in the main bathroom and have added additional seating in the river room. We really look forward to seeing you all again. Shada and Paul x Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay in the cottage."

    It began with an excellent welcome pack and a visit from Paul and Shada to show us how the fire and hot tub worked. The beds were very comfortable and the fire and hot tub were a luxury to return to after a walk. The cottage is perfectly situated with walks from the door around the Chatsworth estate. Paul and Shada were easily contactable both before and after the stay offering advice on days out and places to eat. Overall an ideal place for three generations to meet up and have a well needed break.

  • "A little girly mini-break."

    One of the loveliest cottages we have ever stayed in. Absolute perfection. The owners Shada and Paul have thought of everything anyone could wish for ( fizz and chocolates on arrival were such a thoughtful touch). Twinkly fairy lights everywhere, fabulous hot tub and kitchen facilities. Charlie’s Bistro ( literally across the road) was an added bonus. HIGHLY recommend! Thank you both so much.

    Hello Julie and guests, Thank you so much for your lovely review, and really it should be me and every other woman thanking you all for the fantastic charity work you do for “what women want” a worthy charity which helps women with cancer. You are a lovely ensemble of truly remarkable women and we so look forward to welcoming you all back again Love Shada and Paul x Property Owner

  • "We booked a girls weekend away in the peaks and chose Tollbar cottage , it absolutely exceeded our expectations and was such a lovely stay."

    The hot tub was such a nice feature and was easy to use. The house was very clean and comfortable and the hosts even left us a bottle of Prosecco which was so sweet. We will definitely be coming back!

  • "A lovely place to spend a cosy family Christmas."

    The cottage was very easy to locate and settle into. Very convenient village location with the local coop and pub on the doorstep. It was lovely being able to access the grounds of Chatsworth on foot. The house itself it well set up. Handy ground floor bedroom for elder family and comfortable bedrooms for us and the kids upstairs. Kitchen is well equipped (full Christmas dinner was possible) and space for sitting room, conservatory and dining room was perfect for our group. We did not get the benefit of the garden and jacuzzi, it was December after all, but loved seeing the river and ducks from the windows at the back of the cottage.

    Dear Heather, Thank you so much for a very kind and lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed Toll Bar Cottage, and Christmas was enjoyed by you all. Hopefully we will see you all again when you can hopefully enjoy the hot tub with sunny and glorious garden views. Cheers Paul and Shada Property Owner

  • "Fantastic property."

    Beautifully renovated cottage and completely spotless. Great to have off road parking and yet be right in the middle of Baslow. Cottage is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Will definitely recommend and have already rebooked for 2024 to visit Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. Super stay! Many thanks...

    Hello Liz and thank you for your very generous words. It’s important for us to ensure our guests enjoy their stay and we are happy you loved yours. Lovely to see you are to return as well and we look forward to welcoming you back to Toll Bar. Thank you Shada and Paul x Property Owner

  • "A delightful stay at Toll Bar cottage."

    The hosts were very friendly and provided lots of useful information. The cottage is beautiful, a stunning location beautifully decorated and very cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. We had everything we needed, the hot tub was an extra bonus as we hadn’t noticed that when we originally booked. We would definitely return for another stay

Toll Bar Cottage is a delightful, riverside dwelling resting in a picturesque setting on the banks of the River Derwent in Baslow, Derbyshire, with beautiful riverside views to enjoy, this stylish property is close to a range of amenities and is situated near to the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in the Peak District National Park.

The cottage benefits from ample parking upon the private driveway or to the roadside, before stepping into the hall, firstly reaching the welcoming living room and the stylish dining room then finally reaching the well-equipped, spacious kitchen, with all the essentials to ease your self-catered stay; here you can prepare meals and enjoy brunch, whilst for a formal affair, set the dining table and cheers to your getaway.

The sitting room offers a lovely space to unwind after a day of exploration, open the bifold doors to the garden room to enjoy the evening sun over the river.

Original beams overhead and plush seating to sink into, light the woodburning stove before partaking in a competitive evening of boardgames.

The garden room offers an additional space to sit and enjoy the views, the perfect nook to escape from the rest of the home with a good book and glass of wine, or why not enjoy an alfresco evening, overlooking the breath-taking river while having a relaxing soak in the hot tub.

When it’s time to rest, the cottage boasts three thoughtfully-appointed bedrooms, including a super-king-size bedroom (zip and link), a king-size bed to the upper floor and another king-size bedroom to the ground floor, all serviced by a sleek bathroom, housing both a bath and walk-in shower.

The ground floor has a separate WC and basin facility.

Toll Bar Cottage provides the perfect base to explore Baslow, a quaint village of historical structures, its mediaeval bridge next to the cottage, independent boutiques, and traditional inns.

For a day out, visit the nearby Chatsworth House, the magnificent home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, brimming with exquisite architecture, beautiful gardens, and vibrant events, or take a trip to the bustling town of Bakewell, renowned for its pastries, local markets, and outdoor activities.

There is a bus stop right outside the property where you can catch a bus that will take you all around the Peak District.

About the location

BASLOW

Chatsworth 1 mile; Bakewell 5 miles.

The pretty village of Baslow lies at the north end of stately Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The village has many unusual and picturesque features including a triple-arched river bridge guarded by a toll house whose doorway is only 3 1/2 feet high! Baslow offers a range of village amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants. Close by is Bakewell, the capital of the Peak District, and home of the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!), still made locally to an old and secret recipe. Bakewell is at the scenic heart of the Peak District, and with Alton Towers also within easy touring distance, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
