    “Stunning Family Retreat”

    We are a family of four, and we wanted a true ‘hideaway’ (and felt we could use some luxury!) when circumstances beyond our control meant we had to vacate our home for a short while recently ...

    We are a family of four, and we wanted a true ‘hideaway’ (and felt we could use some luxury!) when circumstances beyond our control meant we had to vacate our home for a short while recently. I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt absolutely compelled to share how amazing this place is. The words ‘exquisite’ and ‘luxurious’ are banded about a lot these days, but just from walking through the original farmhouse door into the huge kitchen, I was blown away, and I felt the stress of the past few weeks begin to lift. It’s rare to find original features (the farmhouse is grade 2 listed) and modern design mixed well - but Wildersley Farm seems to do this effortlessly. The whole downstairs is open plan and ‘flows’...yet each area has an identity and uniqueness to it; from the quirky and cosy “bar” to the stunning, high spec kitchen. The original stonework is exposed throughout, which just gives a warm feel to the place. Everywhere you look, there is something beautiful to marvel at; decor, design or simply the beauty of the house. It’s hard to know where to start really with the details...but let’s do so in that Kitchen. All appliances are of a very high quality. I love to cook, and the cupboards housed everything I needed; all spotlessly clean and organised well. Marble worktops, heated floor, top of the range double oven...a dream kitchen! The dining table (as with many items of furniture throughout Wildersley Farm) was clearly bespoke, a vast of beautiful oak surrounded by very comfortable velvet chairs. The children loved to cosy up and chill out on the kitchen’s sofas, especially when my Husband had the log burner going (which sits within a stunning and absolutely massive original stone fireplace!). Screen time rapidly reduced too...just to all be in the same room chatting was so novel for us; Wildersley is a genuine ‘retreat’ that just seemed to bring us together. The lounge and snug are chic yet very comfortable, and my Daughter was very pleased to find lots of games in the cupboards (Dinosaur Operation being her fave!). As well as toasting marshmallows on the fire pit, we loved family time in the hot-tub; and once again everything is evidently thought through for guests; for example a second path leads directly from the hot tub to the snug and then through to a downstairs shower room. Fluffy robes, towels and toiletries were all provided. The views of Derbyshire Countryside from the hot tub are out of this world. Across two upper floors are 6 individual bedrooms; we didn’t know which to choose from as they are totally stunning and each unique. My Daughter felt “like Rapunzel” in her blush pink hideaway on the top floor - complete with it’s own bath in the room! And my Husband and I loved the opulence of the “copper bath” room - which really does have to be seen to be believed. Just stunning...a real escape from reality. Every en-suite and bathroom has a theme, a feel to it; it’s just so well thought out and stunningly beautiful. As I said, I promised myself I’d write this review as the owners have just absolutely got it spot on. Every single room. Every day we would make wishes in the grounds’ wishing well, and have a walk to a little woods we discovered very close by. The local area is beautiful. Walking back to light a fire in the wood burning stove and sit around the table as a family will stay with me always. As I said, circumstance meant that we had to find somewhere to stay, however, we were extremely lucky to have found this place, and I would recommend that anyone who has the opportunity to book Wildersley absolutely do so.

The property

The ultimate remote hideaway resting in an extremely desirable position in Derbyshire, The Farm House can be found settled on the outskirts of Belper, in easy reach of the Peak District National Park as well as Matlock, Derby and Nottingham too.

A spectacular, detached stone-built cottage, surrounded by spectacular countryside views, there's surely no better choice for a rural escape with your loved ones.

Marvel at the impressive exterior of the property, soaking in the peace and quiet, before stepping inside to the excitement of the inviting open-plan living space.

The property exudes character throughout, with exposed stone walls, original beams and a contemporary twist in its decor, this theme being evidenced in the spectacular sociable space before you; gather all together around the impressive dining table as the warmth of the woodburning stove fills the room, the chef of the group making the most of the high-quality appliances at hand, the breakfast bar making the perfect spot for little helpers too.

Gather around the warmth of the stove in a smaller group, or carry your conversations through to the sitting room where a second woodburning stove awaits you amidst its luxe furnishings.

Take the stairs from the snug, moving past the convenient ground-floor shower room where you can hose off after a relaxing soak in the hot tub beneath the stars, and be greeted by four of the beautiful bedrooms; take your pick from a super-king-size with an en-suite bathroom, a king-size, a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin with zip/link functions being a double on request, all being served by the glamourous family bathroom where you can choose from a dip in the freestanding bath or a soothing shower in the large walk-in enclosure.

Moving up to the second floor you will find the final two bedrooms made up of a super-king-size also with convenient zip/link functions to be a twin on request and a double with a freestanding bath in the room making a lovely escape for couples seeking a spot away from the excitement of the group, with an impressive wet room resting up here too.

Each room boasts its own lavish interior, offering guests only the best on their luxurious retreat, accompanied by ample storage space for all of your personal belongings too.

Outside the wonder only continues; get together around the sunken fire pit and while away the hours exchanging stories of your favourite holiday moments so far before sinking into the warm waters of the hot tub.

If you can tear yourself away from this beautiful base, be sure to explore the local historic town of Belper, holding a charming atmosphere at any time of year, it provides all you could need for a welcome self-catered stay, with a wide selection of shops where you can pick up any ingredients for a hearty breakfast, as well as eateries aplenty for those special occasions including pubs, restaurants and cafés to take your pick from, or pack up a picnic and take a stroll amongst the scenic River Derwent for a leisurely day with your loved ones, the beautiful Memorial Gardens and Belper Parks Local Nature Reserve being well-worth exploring too.

Visit the wonder of the Strutt's North Mill Museum, one of the Derwent Valley Mills, given UNESCO World Heritage Status for a fantastic historic experience, with Long Row and the River Gardens being a must-see too, or spend an hour or two in the cinema, with plenty of shops to explore after too.

The property also benefits from offering good road links to the surrounding areas, so a trip to the Peak District town of Matlock is easy where you will find the enticing Peak District Mining Museum, Gulliver's Kingdom theme park perfect for the little ones, Matlock Bath Aquarium and Exhibitions, and of course it's beautiful gorge, the best views available from one of the town's cable cars for a day out with a difference, you can get to Matlock and also Newark using Belper train station.

Venture into the city of Nottingham to discover spectacular architecture, rich culture and a bustling nightlife, while the excitement of Derby can be found just a scenic drive away too.

In easy reach of the Peak District National Park as well for all matters of adventure, The Farm House is a truly special property for your family escape to rural Derbyshire.
