The property

This modest, detached cottage, inspired by George Clarke's Amazing Spaces is named after an ancient family home and sits within the grounds of the owner's property.

Dwaradin is old English for place or den of the dwarves, this "tiny house" is small, but has everything you need for a romantic self-catered stay.

This all-ground-floor holiday accommodation has been designed to offer a welcoming and eco-friendly base for a couple or single person from which they can explore the delights of Derbyshire’s countryside and spend quality time.

The inviting cottage is run entirely on green electricity, as well as being of timber-framed construction.

With deep insulation on all sides and triple glazed, Dwaradin only needs a small amount of energy to keep it warm!

The king-size eco duvet is made from recycled bottles and the appliances are all A-rated for energy efficiency.

The entrance hall brings you into the open-plan living space, with all the essentials required for a self-catered stay, including a compact kitchen with electric cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

There is a two-seater sofa and a foldaway dining table and chairs, which can be used indoors, or outside on the private decking where you can dine alfresco whilst soaking in the countryside scenery.

Eat and drink from the locally produced Denby tableware and be inspired by the prints and paintings of local scenes on the walls.

Enjoy a meal, glass of wine and plan your itinerary, before relaxing into your evening on the sofa, or lounging on the king-size bed; from either spot you can flick on the Smart TV, use the internet, watch TV or a Netflix programme, before catching up on sleep ahead of your next day of adventure.

Concluding the interior is the shower room off the entrance hall, with a corner shower, corner vanity unit and WC, this is a perfect little space for a relaxing shower before or after a wonderful day in the Peak District.

Outside, you can enjoy the wonderful view, over the garden, of historic Riber Castle on the skyline, with views over to Starkholmes creating beautiful scenery you can also watch the sun go down over the surrounding hills from the west-facing decking.

Be sure to explore your local surroundings by foot or bike too, with Matlock boasting plenty of scenic routes to follow whilst resting amidst the wooded gorge of the River Derwent.

Dwaradin is a couple of hundred yards from the bus stop on the main road, with regular buses to Sheffield, Chesterfield and the centre of Matlock.

Stop off in the local pub, the Duke of Wellington, set in a former drover's inn, this characterful public house serves delicious meals as well as refreshing drinks, perfect for a relaxed evening following a day of rambling.

Matlock is also home to a host of restaurants and cafés, as well as supermarkets and a scatter of convenience stores where you can pick up your own selection of snacks for a picnic by the river, whilst the Peak District Mining Museum is the perfect place to learn of the town's rich history where you can even try your hand at panning for gold!

The Crich Tramway Village is guaranteed to be a delight for the avid trainspotter, with over 60 trams built between 1873 and 1982 to marvel at, while Chatsworth House is well-worth visiting; home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, here you will find an impressive 105 acre Victorian rock garden and a farmyard with furry friend, as well as there being a host of fantastic events held throughout the year, with opportunities to indulge in a traditional afternoon tea too.

Explore the wonder of the Peak District National Park to find walking and cycling routes aplenty as well as more adventurous activities such as fell running, caving, fishing, horse riding, watersports and more, or simply soak up the beauty of your desirable location back at your charming cottage, Dwaradin, a wonderful base to call home as you explore this glorious part of England.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Matlock Bath 1 mile; Bakewell 8 miles.

The popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, has been attracting visitors to the area since the spa was developed in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, the Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. 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 with its showcaves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. To the north are the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House and Park - not to be missed!
