  • "Lovely warm clean Cosy cottage"

  • "We have stayed here a few times and have recommended it to friends."

    The cottage was well furnished, very comfortable and well equipped. A definite bonus is the lovely pub next door serving great food and beers.

  • "The cottage was compact with everything you needed."

    We would have liked to have a washing machine but this is a minor point. The pub next door is a major selling point and the cottage is located in beautiful surroundings with lots to do locally.

  • "A superb cottage - spotlessly clean and comfortable."

    All 3 bedrooms are en suite and each one has a television. The cottage has the added advantage of being next door to an excellent pub which has an extensive menu and serves very good meals. About a dozen steps have to be negotiated to reach your parked car or to reach the pub. As long as you can manage steps, you will enjoy an excellent stay in a very well appointed cottage. Both the pub and the cottage are dog friendly, with the cottage having a completely secure patio area

  • "The property was lovely."

    Bedrooms were a good size all with en-suite. The living space was small for 6 adults. In one bedroom the noise from a fan outside kept the couple in that room awake, this lack of sleep meant the holiday wasn’t as enjoyable as it could have been. The pub next door was lovely with great food.

  • "The Cottage is compact and clean but parking a problem."

    There is a communal park but this was full on arrival (Sunday p.m.) and parking by the Pub is very restrictive, this happened twice. The cottage has the cooking, dining and seating area all in one space and the three of us coped but for 6 it would be tight. Cottage well provisioned and equipped. The Pub next door is excellent with food, service and range of drinks. There is no shop in the village the nearest is either Bakewell or Buxton so arrive with plenty of supplies or its a long drive

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Church Inn Cottage."

    Lovely clean and tidy rooms all with ensuite facilities. Kitchen is small but modern and lounge/diner has plenty of room for 6 people. Private parking and its own back entrance to the quiet, friendly pub across the courtyard, which has a good selection of food and beers. Chelmorten is a very small village but Buxton and Bakewell are only a short drive away.

  • "A lovely cottage and great location."

    Everything is a drive except local walks and of course the pub which has a back entrance from the cottage - very handy! Friendly with good homecooked food. The steps into and out of the property are tricky if less mobile. Ensuites with every bedroom very handy. Living areas a squeeze for 6 people at a time.

    Decent size bedrooms with en-suites. Nice outdoor patio area. Next-door to a lovely pub serving great food and Drink (we ate there four nights during our weeks stay). Its a place we would consider returning to.

  • "The Church Inn cottage is absolutely perfect for exploring the Peaks."

    Comfy beds, great en suite showers for every room. My family and I had a great time - the little patio is a real sun trap and the pub next door is very welcoming. Would highly recommend.

  • "Lovely, comfortable cottage in a great location for visiting the Peak District with the added bonus of being just a few steps away from a very nice pub."

    The three en-suite bedrooms were just right for our party of 3 couples. The kitchen area is quite compact but well equipped. However we ate in the pub for the 3 nights we were there. The one negative point is the sensitive smoke alarm - which isn't really a problem unless you like your toast more than lightly done!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We can confirm that the smoke alarms are checked and conform to industry standards. They were professionally installed and have not caused any other issues,. Property Owner

  • "Had a fantastic week, the cottage is lovely and well equipped in a fabulous location."

    Dog friendly, very clean and well decorated throughout with everything you need to enjoy your stay including an enclosed patio with a bbq. Whilst the listing does say not suitable for those with limited mobility, the pictures on the Sykes site show the front of the pub and the front of another cottage 200 metres into the village on the other side of the road. These both appear to have 2 steps. We assumed this meant no wheelchair access but would be OK for someone with heart problems who could manage a couple of steps. However there are 10 steps to navigate down to the property. I think the listing needs to be clearer but otherwise its a fantastic cottage with a great pub next door and I'd wholeheartedly reccomend it.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Church Inn Cottage, Chelmorton."

    It's in a peaceful village and very comfortable with 3 spacious bedrooms plus good facilities making it a 'home from home'. The cottage is an ideal base; next door to a friendly pub with excellent menu and great for exploring the Peak District. I was celebrating a special birthday and it was lovely to have close family there (including the dog!). Would like to return one day as there's more to see in the area but we ran out of time!

    The living space and kitchen area is a bit cramped for 6 and the sitting area wasn’t too comfortable. We were only 4 adults so six would have a squeeze. Great walks from the area, excellent pub, good Choice of food and real ales. Convenient to get to Buxton and other towns. Nice seating area outside but this time of year we were unable to enjoy it.good hot water, heating was also excellent.

  • "Great week in a well furnished and comfortable cottage."

    It was something knowing that after a day walking in the Peak District you were going back to a warm and welcoming cottage. The added bonus being the Church Inn next door where we ate most nights, also owned by the cottage owner, great food and a friendly atmosphere. You could ask for more. Highly recommended.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
