  • "Lovely cottage and a great location for exploring the peak district."

    Everything you need is available in the cottage with a short walk to the local shops worked well for us especially with two dogs. We arrived late so it was great to find a welcome box of goodies from the owner and tea/coffee all set up for us......highly reccomend this place.

    Jeff, thank you very much for highly recommending us! We are pleased you appreciated the goodies on arrival and found everything you needed in our small cottage. Property Owner

  • "Cottage in a perfect location close to shops, pubs and walks."

    Very clean on arrival however a few points where improvements could be addressed:- Towels that were provided were extremely rough The bed and mattress was very uncomfortable, really could do with replacing, it creaked very loudly with every single movement. Apart from this we had a lovely week at the cottage and spending time in a beautiful area.

    The cottage has been lovingly restored with lots of period features and is warm and comfortable. Lots of great walks on the doorstep. Will definitely be back, thank you.

  • "We had a relaxing short stay in this cosy cottage."

    The woodburner was ideal in the rainy, windy weather! The stairs were too steep for our older dog, but the door at the bottom meant we weren't worried about him trying to get upstairs. Although the cottage is on a main road, there wasn't too much traffic, especially at night time. Lots of places to walk from the doorstep and dog-friendly pubs with excellent food. We would definitely go back.

    Barbra, I'm glad you found our cottage a cosy place to shelter from storm Eunice. Thank you so much for choosing to stop with us. I hope to welcome you again with more clement weather! Property Owner

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It was impeccably clean, warm and situated perfectly for walks and historic sites. There were lovely thoughtful touches such as biscuits for Murphy (much appreciated by him) and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay away from home. Adam was so helpful, answering questions quickly and giving great recommendations on places in the area. I would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage for a stay!

    Cromford is a great place to stay with plenty of amenities and lots of nice places to visit on foot along the many public footpaths or by bus. We found parking in the layby easy. There was audible road noise but it didn't impact on our enjoyment of our stay. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and the shower was great.

  • "A fantastic spot in a convenient location in historic Cromford ."

    Its wonderfully cozy and pretty friendly for walking & outdoors activities with easy clean floor and sufficient space for two, though you will need plenty of kit/ handwashing. Squeaky staircase and metal door handles are cute though not so great for sneaking about when someone else is having a lie in! We looked for a vintage setting, and found it!! Tempered by a most luxuriant modern shower room, so not entirely vintage :)

  • "The floor was dirty, the road was incredibly busy and noisy, the stairs were steep and small and i couldn't use them during my stay."

    A redeeming feature was the wood burner.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the stove. The living room floor is 200 years old and consequently has an aged patina. If you genuinely felt there were issues with cleanliness we are unsure why you did not raised them during your stay. The cottage description clearly states that the stairs are steep and may not be suitable for those with limited mobility. We encourage guests to read the description carefully before booking.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the cottage, which is small and cosy, and has been restored authentically and had everything we needed."

    Cromford is ideally placed for exploring the area on foot, due to the network of footpaths that crisscross the village, giving easy access to the High Peak Trail and many other routes. We knew the cottage was on a main road but didn’t find the traffic noise intrusive at all, and enjoyed looking out over the neighbours well kept vegetable gardens at the back! Local amenities- several shops and two pubs - were within easy walking distance, and the fish and chips from Robinsons were the best we have had. Scarthin Books and Cromford Mills are well worth visiting, as is a walk along the canal.

    It is really good to hear you enjoyed your time in Cromford. We too love to walk up to the High Peak Trail and back into the village along the canal. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful holiday, do NOT go to 61The Hill."

    The description of the property says ‘some road noise’. This as an understatement. There is actually constant road noise from cars, a lot of motorbikes, (nearby Matlock is a biker haven) and a phenomenal amount of lorries carrying aggregate to and from the local quarry. There is also a constant flow of skip lorries and a ‘dampening down’ vehicle to try and keep the quarry dust down. There is a brief period of quiet between 1am and 430am. The property says it has a seating area with views. The seating area is actually next door’s bin store. He has access to the space when ever he wants. He also has a security camera outside his door pointing to the 2 wooden chairs (which were pretty much rotted through) which is not conducive to a ‘relaxing glass of wine’ as suggested in the information book. There were also a lot of flies in the house which made things very unpleasant. I am assuming they must have come from the neighbour’s bin. Cromford itself is very busy traffic wise, and it can get difficult to drive out with long waiting times at junctions. The Boat inn provides some respite with a nice garden which doesn’t overlook the road (the other pubs do). Cromford canal is nice.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback. We are sorry that the traffic spoilt you enjoyment. Cromford is a busy village particularly this summer, as more people are choosing to holiday in the UK. We hope you find greater solitude from your next holiday. Property Owner

  • "The advertised small garden was just a narrow alleyway and it wasn’t until we arrived we found out that it was the next door neighbours right of way, totally unsuitable for a dog to be in, this we didn’t find out until we arrived at the property."

    There were collapsible table and chairs but couldn’t be used as you would have been in the way of the next door neighbours access. The Road was horrendously busy as lorries from 2 stone quarries thundered by continually from 5am in the morning plus skips carrying bulkwaste, when we left the cottage my Daughters car was covered in white dust from the lorries carrying stone. I know on the sykes website it said it was on a busy road but that was an understatement in fact it was miss representation. The cottage was lovely very clean and cosy and not over modernised.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback. The extraction of limestone makes an important contribution to the local economy. Road noise is audible from the property but in our experience the majority of traffic is local or tourism. Property Owner

    ) with modern bathroom and a kitchen that ticks all the boxes without looking out of place. It's a pleasure to stay somewhere with such character! The corner stairs are steep but manageable for most. Our second visit was just as enjoyable as the first despite covid restrictions! Cromford is a great little town with good access to walks along the canal and the High Peak Trail and Black Rocks. Don't miss Robinsons fish & chip shop – only open Friday & Saturday nights but excellent! The Boat and the Greyhound both have good food as well as real ale, and the Bell is just down the hill and perfect for a nightcap on the way back! A little time exploring the path by the church is rewarding – so peaceful and a welcome shortcut away from the traffic if you're going into the centre from the station or the canal.

    Many thanks for stopping with us again. It is always good to welcome guests who appreciate the character and historical significance of our modest cottage. Robinson's fish and chips are our favourite! We hope to welcome you again in the not too distant future. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely cottage!"

    Everything we needed for a much needed break away from work demands. We had planned to do lots of walking with Mungo, the Labrador, but the weather was too wet for us to do everything we wanted to . However, we were warm and comfortable in the cottage, with plenty to keep us occupied, especially as broadband was good. Loved the fact we could make tea as soon as we arrived - which was much needed after a fraught journey up the M1 - and that there was a good sized teapot! Everything was great - only dropped a grade on comfort because of the steepness of the stairs, which took some getting used to. But they are part of the charm of the cottage - just useful to be warned if mobility is an issue. Mungo is used to having access to a large garden, but he soon adapted to going across the road to the local cemetery for his morning and evening walk, so lack of garden was not an issue for us. Parking was also easier than we had anticipated. Village of Cromford was sufficient for all our eating needs, so no need to drive in the evenings. We would all highly recommend this cottage and look forward to another visit in the future as we love this area of England.

  • "I felt the cottage was very basic and really quite depressing."

    I felt that I needed to stay out as Long as possible. I appreciate that it was an old cottage, but felt it needed a lot of TLC. For the amount of money I paid I was very disappointed. The outside space was poorly advertised and very scruffy I know that the size cannot be helped but needed mentioning. Being has the stairs were so steep they needed carpeting. The bathroom was nice but no where to sit and no bath mats, floor in shower very slippy,had to buy bath mats. No tables in front room. Toaster not big enough to take a normal slice of bread. I have stayed in lots of cottages over the years not all good but have not complained. The cottage was no where like the web site pictures. Sorry haven’t quite finished although I also appreciate keeping the original features the floors did nothing for making you feel cosy. I switched the cleaner on it sounded like a screeming Banshee.

    What it does not tell you is that it is on the main A road through Cromford so that it is impossible to sleep. The stairs are extremely steep and would say that it would be a problem for some people. The "Courtyard Garden" was small and cluttered with plant pots that had weeds in them and was overlooked by the neighbours which made it unpleasant to sit out, morning or evening and to cap it off, I don't normally watch the TV when away but it is a good job, it kept "cubing"and the sound went several times. There were a couple of nice touches like the bottle of wine and treats and a towel for the pooch. The local people were very friendly and the food was excellent value and good quality. The area is great for walking and interest. .Sorry but not a lot more to say

    Lorraine, thank you very much for your feedback. We always appreciate comments from guests to acknowledge what we do well and as an opportunity to improve. We were glad that you enjoyed all the Derbyshire Dales has to offer. Also, that you felt the wine and dog treats were a nice touch. As mentioned in the description the cottage is located on the B5036, but this is not an A road. As with similar properties in the village road noise is audible but this reduces considerably at night. There are several pots on the patio to add colour and interest. These contain Astrantia, Geraniums and Verbena, which are not usually regarded as weeds. The patio is overlooked by our friendly neighbour, as the wall is waist height. However, this allows guests to appreciate the views over Black Rocks. Thank you letting us know about problems with the TV. I wish you had contacted us at the time of your stay and we would have replaced it then Property Owner

    Very thoughtful owners who had made sure there was everything we and our dogs needed there. Amazing walks in and around Cromford itself as well as the beautiful Peak District National Park a short drive away. We had a fantastic time and would love to return.

  • "As it was stated as being a dog friendly cottage, lack of garden space could have been greater emphasised!"

    Otherwise, a delightful property and worthy of passing recommendation to family and friends

The property

The Hill is a sympathetically restored 200-year old terraced, Grade II listed, former millworkers' cottage situated in the village of Cromford close to the Peak District National Park.

The cottage combines simple Georgian style with modern comforts and is perfect for a couple wishing to explore the picturesque Peak District.

Stoke up the woodburning stove on a chilly evening or admire the expansive views up the hill to the High Peak Trail.

The more adventurous can be walking or cycling within minutes of leaving the cottage.

For those with relaxation in mind, the warm throws and lovingly restored furnishings will help you to unwind.

The hand-built kitchen provides all the cooking essentials as well as a table for dining.

Characterful steep original stairs lead to the first floor where there is a comfortable bedroom.

In the bathroom, there is a generous walk-in shower.

Outside there is a small seating area with views, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee and planning the day ahead.

Cromford is a must for those with an interest in industrial history.

Set in the World Heritage Derwent Valley it was here that Richard Arkwright spun his way to fame and fortune.

The cottage itself forms part of the original village, which is the world's first example of industrial housing.

There's plenty to keep you entertained in the Mill Yard and canal, Cromford's historic heart.

There's a Visitor Centre with interactive exhibits, cafes and shops.

The village also offers a range of shops, pubs and other facilities.

Away from the village, there is a broad range of attractions.

Beautiful Chatsworth House and its stunning parkland is a short drive away.

The Crich Tramway Museum is a fun way of exploring the history of transport, whilst the cable cars of the Heights of Abraham will offer you a whole new perspective over the area, known to the Victorians as Little Switzerland.

Matlock, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Buxton are all close by with Dale Road in Matlock being an antique hunter’s paradise.

You really are spoilt for choice whenever you chose to stay.
