    “Beautiful cottage with all you could wish for.”


    Two gorgeous comfy bedrooms, central heating and a lovely log burner (with a starter pack of logs/fuel to get you going). Fully fitted kitchen with all you need (and if you do need anything there's Morrison's, Aldi, Co-op minutes away). There are a lot of quirky individual shops in Belper which are worth investigating. Broadband with smart TV with Netflix/BBC Iplayer and more. Iron + ironing board - no washing machine (no big deal, but useful to know) Well located for Derbyshire with loads of places to visit. Lovely secluded garden which is great for those with dogs and it's just across the road from Belper gardens which is perfect for exercising dogs. Belper market square is less than 10 minutes walk through there - take a torch though, it gets dark! We didn't get the best of the weather on our visit, but the garden in better times would be a real suntrap, with lovely patio and table. We had a lovely meal at The Devonshire on the other side of town (20 minutes walk) fully dog friendly and great food. We'd go along with most of the comments in the visitor's book - we want to move in!

The property

Tucked away within a picturesque setting is the Blacking Mill Cottage, nestled within the historic town of Belper.

Promising a quaint retreat for two couples, this cottage is perfect for those looking to explore the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, or for those simply looking to escape their day to day life.

Upon entering the dwelling, you are welcomed into a well-appointed kitchen, boasting a charming range cooker, stone flooring and granite worktops.

Look forward to sinking into the sitting room, where you will find two sofas resting in front of a roaring woodburning fire, making a delightful spot for unwinding after adventure filled day.

Head up the staircase to find a well-presented double bedroom and a separate family bathroom, where you will find a stylish interior with a walk-in shower, a warming bath, a basin and WC.

Completing the interior is a king-size double bedroom on the second-floor, where you will be delighted with the overlooking views it houses as well as the exposed beams which quietly reflect the history of this property.

Spend a moment or two within the enclosed garden area, where you and your loved ones can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining during the warmer months.

If you fancy a special treat one evening, a leisurely stroll will bring you to a wealth of restaurants, pubs and bars, in addition to a selection of shops for picking up any holiday essentials.

Within the town itself you will also find a number of attractions to keep you busy, including The North Mill, Long Row and the endearing River Gardens.

Further afield, are the charming villages of Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath, each well worth a visit.

Belper, situated in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site, is a town with a long and famous history dating back to the 13th century, when it was then called Beaurepaire (beautiful retreat), a name that still holds true today. Now you'll find it to be a spirited and bustling town, with attractions including the North Mill, Long Row and the River Gardens. There is a thriving local music and arts scene and the town hosts an annual Arts festival every May as well as Winter and Summer Food festivals and a monthly Farmers Market. The nearby historical village of Wirksworth is also home to a well-established Art and Architecture trail and Arts Festival every September. Just 10 miles away, the popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, are set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent. The Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as a whole host of other exciting attractions. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car, which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family! South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst to the north lie the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House - not to be missed! The award-winning town of Belper provides holidaymakers with an excellent base for all that Derbyshire has to offer.
