  • "One of the best Sykes cottages we have stayed at ."

  • "Wonderful cosy holiday cottage equipped with everything you need."

    Spotlessly clean with a lovely outside decking area great for breakfast in the mornings or a glass of wine early evening. A lovely surprise to find a more than generous welcome pack on arrival. Cottage is situated opposite a lovely woodland walk so great for dogs or walk into town. We used public transport throughout our stay using Wayfarer day tickets which allow you to travel throughout Derbyshire on buses and trains. Would highly recommend a stay at Halfways.

  • "This is a delightful cottage located within a few minutes walk of the town."

    Probably the best stocked cottage we have been in, which was much appreciated. It was clean, warm and cosy and the generous welcome pack was a lovely surprise. There are a few great walks directly from the cottage which meant no need to drive and many tourist attractions only a short drive away. Would definitely recommend Halfways.

  • "Everything you would need was provided plus a very generous & very useful welcome pack."

    The cottage had an efficient central heating system & we liked the close proximity to Belper- could take a 5 -7 minute walk through a small wood to reach the town or a few minutes longer by road. Would certainly recommend this property & likely to return @ some future date.

    It is beautifully decorated with lots of homely touches. There was a Christmas tree and lovely decorations in the lounge. It was Home from home. There was even an extensive welcome pack... Eggs, bread, milk, biscuits, a bottle of wine and lots of nicies. The cottage is exceptionally clean with all the amenities you could think of. It was handy having a driveway too. The owner of the cottage, Vanessa is a lovely lady and really helpful. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.

  • "Halfway- exceeded expectations."

    The exceedingly generous welcome package and superbly equipped kitchen (you could easily cook a Christmas dinner, with what was available in this kitchen). Clear information (posted, where you need it) throughout cottage, explaining where to find or what was behind the door. Easily the cleanest cottage we have stayed in. Owners got in touch on arrival day, so you had a contact if there was a problem. Happily, book this again, if staying in area.

  • "Lovely clean cottage with an exceptional welcome pack."

    Everything you could possibly need has been provided and the location is perfect for exploring the Peak District. Across the road is a wooded walk with a short cut through to the shops. Nonno's Italian restaurant and Beaurepaire tea shop are a must!

    Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. I am glad to hear you found the cottage comfortable and suprised to hear the sliding door was not working as intended. Had the issue been reported during your stay we would have attended the property right away to get this fixed. Since your departure on the changeover we arranged for our handyman to fix the door and was fixed within a matter of a few minutes. We would love to welcome you back to Halfways and hope to see you again! - Many thanks. Property Owner

About the location


Matlock 11 miles; Ashbourne 11 miles, Nottingham 16 miles, Derby 8 miles.

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.
