The property

Just a short distance away from the stunning scenery of the Peak District, situated within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site, within the bustling town of Belper, is this traditional Edwardian property, Shaw House.

This comfortable retreat is perfect for a family of four or for two couples seeking to explore the delights of the Derwent Valley Mills and venture further to the Peak District where you will find a vast array of attractions and amenities to suit all ages and tastes.

You will enter the property via the porch, where you can kick off your walking boots before relaxing into your evening within the elegantly-styled property.

The sitting room is a bright and airy space for you and your loved ones to unwind in the evening, with a TV, a large collection of DVDs or games to choose from and a selection of books to enjoy as you relax on the comfy sofa.

Beyond here is the well-equipped kitchen, where the designated chef of the group will be delighted by all the quality appliances that have been fitted to ensure that you can cater for yourselves during a week-long break.

At the end of the kitchen there is a delightful sunny breakfast room which also doubles as a bedroom for your dog should you choose to bring one.

After cooking up a storm in the kitchen, head into the dining room where you and your loved ones can gather to plan the days ahead whilst you tuck into a delicious home-cooked meal.

The dining room is also a second sitting room with more comfy chairs and a second sofa and a cosy log burner to curl up in front of.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find two refreshingly decorated bedrooms, comprising a king-size double bedroom and a twin bedroom with zip-lock beds that can be joined to make a super king sized bed on request, each boasting quality linens, and ample space to house your personal belongings. If you are visiting during the summer months, spend some time in the pretty, enclosed, sunny rear garden where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining whilst your canine companions relax on the lawn area. If you don’t feel like cooking every evening, venture into the centre of Belper where you will find a superb selection of amenities including a host of pubs, including several quirky micro pubs, and restaurants offering a wide range of quality, locally-produced food.

During the day you will be spoilt for choice with a fabulous range of independent shops to browse and coffee shops /cafes.

Don't forget to book seats at the independent Ritz Cinema , just a ten minute walk from the house, and enjoy the luxury of it's velvet-clad seating one evening.

Attractions within the surrounding area include Strutt's North Mill Museum where you can brush up the local history of the town and learn about Belper's claim to fame as the 'birthplace of the Industrial Revolution' or enjoy a walk in the stunning victorian River Gardens.

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.
