  • "Lovely cute cottage."

    Done up well inside. Wasn’t informed of the code to the key safe, had to keep ringing up for them to contact the owner which was given to us after we had arrived. Property states it is dog friendly and has an outside seating area. This is one chair outside the front door. Which was not ideal for a dog to stay in, as I really struggled to find any grass around for them to go to the toilet. Also states it has private parking for 2 cars which it doesn’t.

  • "My husband and I had booked a long weekend with our dog, and we loved staying at Milford Cottage."

    The neighbours were friendly and welcoming, and gave us good advice on pubs to eat in that were dog friendly. The area was great for walking and there were good countryside walks from the cottage. It was my birthday and the owners very kindly left me a present for when we arrived. All in all, a great place.

    Thankyou for your kind review Katherine, glad you enjoyed your stay and had a great birthday. Property Owner

    Social club very quiet in the cottage even though attached. Super friendly and welcoming to the village. Lots to do for all ages.

  • "Super location."

    Beautifully decorated and furnished cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. Spotlessly clean. The Strutt Arms pub just opposite serves excellent food and is ‘dog friendly’. Would definitely recommend. Make sure to use the dedicated parking spots at the back of the social club - don’t park along the road.

    Pleased to hear you enjoyed everything about your stay Natalie. Thankyou for the kind review. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage."

    Sitting room very small and not too practical but overall cottage was great for what we wanted it for. Social Club next door was excellent but the fact one of the doors accesses the club a little concern. Overall, really nice stay and made very welcome. Would recommend the Strutt Arms.

    Thanks for the kind review Mark, we're glad you felt welcomed. Property Owner

  • "The place is nice, but there are no windows in the living room, so that's not amazing."

    Felt very small Plus the room where the bunk beds are is very stuffy. The pictures make the place look bigger

  • "Beautifully, stylishly designed interior with lots of space and very well equipped."

    Excellent quality and fresh- a lovely place to stay. Some thoughts for the owners might be to think about a bathroom splash back and 6 Dining chairs in the kitchen Not 4. Some clothes hooks in bedrooms would be great. We'd give in 4.5 out of 5- we really liked it. Thank you.

    Thankyou for your kind review Suzanne, we have taken these pointers on board and added them into the cottage. Glad you liked your stay-thankyou Property Owner

The property

Duffield 1.4 miles.

Within the small village of Milford in the county of Derbyshire, lies this delightful end-terrace stone cottage, full of character and original features, it makes a quaint and homely base for a family.

Attached to the now revived Milford Social Club, you are in the centre of the action, just a few steps away from a refreshing drink after a day of walks in the Peaks, or watching live music on a Friday or Saturday night.

Enter this lovely cottage and hang your coat up in the spacious hallway and be greeted by the charming kitchen/diner where a pleasant evening can be spent preparing a hearty feast for the family underneath the exposed rustic beams on the ceiling.

Opposite the original brick fireplace is the dining table, perfect for gathering around to eat while sharing your favourite moments of the day.

A balanced contrast of modern appliances with older rustic features makes for a welcoming atmosphere, continued into the sitting room through the traditional wooden door.

Settle into the sofas and armchairs, turn on the electric woodburning stove effect fire for some extra warmth and enjoy a family game of charades with a glass of wine or two for some fantastic family holiday fun!

When it's time for sleep, head up the stairs hidden behind quirky wooden doors leading from the kitchen/diner, choose from three bedrooms on this first floor; a double or a king-size which leads to a bunk room, an ideal setup for families.

The bathroom lies on the first floor providing a bright and airy spot to freshen up and prepare for another joyful day.

Take a seat in the outdoor space in the summer months and enjoy a morning coffee as you wake up with the rest of the village before beginning to explore the surrounding area.

Embark on the 'Milford Walk' a route of around 6-miles that begins from the village and takes you on a sight-seeing tour up the Derwent Valley before descending into Belper, with wonderful views of the village found from the top of Sunny Hill near the end of the walk.

Take a drive up to the Peak District for some more wonderful landscapes and walking routes, or find other attractions closer to home, like Kedleston Hall, a neoclassical mansion within huge parkland open to the public, or the Duffield Castle run by the National Trust for some local history.

Pick up your essentials from the shops in Duffield, but find your entertainment on your doorstep at Milford Social Club or several other pubs within Milford.

Milford Cottage is a delightful and unique cottage placing you in the centre of a quaint Derbyshire village, perfect for exploring the Derwent Valley.
