    “I think there's lot to love about this cottage: location, cosiness, romantic retreat, comfy kingsize bed, decent shower, nice and quiet and although close to neighbour feels private enough.”

    The kitchen has all the pots and pans you need and there was some bits and bobs (oil/salt/pepper etc.) in the cupboards - this was handy. The porch is great for taking off wet weather clothes after a walk in the rain. We had a car but you could easily use public transport to get here (Whatstandwell on the Derby to Matlock line) and there are good bus connections to Bakewell and then on to Buxton/Castleton etc. There are plenty of walks out of the door with various levels of challenge that can ...

    The kitchen has all the pots and pans you need and there was some bits and bobs (oil/salt/pepper etc.) in the cupboards - this was handy. The porch is great for taking off wet weather clothes after a walk in the rain. We had a car but you could easily use public transport to get here (Whatstandwell on the Derby to Matlock line) and there are good bus connections to Bakewell and then on to Buxton/Castleton etc. There are plenty of walks out of the door with various levels of challenge that can be linked together. There are flat walks along the canal too. The village of Crich has everything we needed - great butcher and a local shop and pub. Belper has supermarkets and in Ambergate you can do a distillery tour - Shining Cliff Gin and Whisky - this was really interesting and felt covid safe. Directions to Inglenook were easy enough to follow and find the place. There are also a few niggles: we booked the cottage for 4 adults and a dog but due to coronavirus/work changes we ended up being 2 adults only - I think this was a relief as the cottage would be cramped for 4 adults for anything longer than a few days (probably okay for 3 adults or adults and kids). Not having the dog with us made us aware that dogs had been in the house e.g. doghairs on the sofa (if the dog had been with us we would have just thought they were from our dog). The woodburner needed some TLC when we first arrived - I learnt using ash, newspaper and elbow grease made the glass transparent again. The kitchen blinds need a good clean/need to be replaced and the water from the kitchen tap is insanely hot (strange niggle I know but I had to plunge my hand into cold water after being caught out). Some of the furnishings/finishes/paintwork are probably ready for a touchup to keep the place matching the photos. A few guidebooks/maps/local info would be handy too. On the whole this was great base for walking, for two of us it was a good size, relaxing and represented good value for money. I would recommend.

The property

Holloway 1.8 miles.

A lovely, stone-built, semi-detached cottage, on a quiet road 1.8 miles from the village of Holloway and near to the villages of Whatstandwell and Crich.

This splendid property is ideal for a small family or a group of four friends who are looking for a memorable holiday spent exploring the stunning countryside surrounding the Peak District National Park.

The cottage has been fully-renovated with a designer kitchen, modern bathroom and contemporary furnishings, yet retains lots of lovely period features, such as exposed beams and a feature fireplace with a warming woodburning stove.

The two bedrooms, a king-size double and a twin, are light and comfortable, whilst the open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area is a lovely place for friends and family to spend quality time together.

Outside, there is a gravelled courtyard with a table for alfresco dining, as well as a secure outbuilding for storing bikes.

There’s plenty to do from the doorstep, such as a visit to the quaint market village of Crich, with its traditional pubs and Tramway Village, not to mention a trip to Cromford, home to the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.

Just a little further afield there’s Matlock, with a range of shops, pubs, restaurants and fun family attractions such as Gulliver’s Kingdom.

Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show-caves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze.

South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst to the north is the market town of Bakewell, as well as Chatsworth House and Park and Haddon Hall.

Carsington Water is also close by and offers fantastic watersports, not to be missed by outdoor enthusiasts.

With all this and more just waiting to be explored, this charming property is a perfect base all year round.
