    This cottage offered everything and more for our family holiday.

    This cottage offered everything and more for our family holiday. The cottage itself offers the charm of a period cottage (brickwork, thick walls, wooden beams- not too low) while being equipped to a very high standard- plenty of kitchen utensils, dish washer ,washing machine, large fridge and freezer. Each of the rooms offer a great amount of space ( unexpected for a cottage) and are decorated to a lovely standard. The hospitality of the owner ( who lives next door) is exceptional- offering advise on the area, being available if required but never being intrusive. The welcome pack was very welcome! The area offers plenty to do either on foot or by car. It was a welcome break not to drive for a few days. The local area offers- Abrahams's Heights, Cromford Canal (with boat trip), Arkwright Mills and plenty more. In addition, as a car mad family- Donington Race Circuit was less than an hour away offering a museum and rally day. We feel we have only scratched the surface of what this area has to offer and will be returning.

The property

This is a lovely, detached stone Arkwright cottage in the village of Cromford, home to the famous Arkwight Mills in the Peak District National Park.

Situated next to the owners’ home, the cottage has a lovely spacious feeling, making it ideal for a family holiday.

On the ground floor is a large sitting room with beautiful exposed brickwork, wooden beams and a flame-effect gas fire, giving it a cosy feel whilst opposite is a fully-equipped traditional kitchen with a dining table.

Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms, both with low windows and views over Cromford towards the hills beyond.

Outside, there is a patio and a gravelled area with a small path leading to a stone outbuilding, along with a further patio, with a stream running alongside, which also takes in the village views.

The cottage is situated just a ten minute walk from the High Peak Trail and associated cycle routes and the centre of Cromford is just a two minute walk away.

This popular village has a fine selection of shops and pubs and just a couple of miles away, Matlock Bath has a huge selection of cafes and ice cream parlours, and is also the starting point for the cable car that takes you to the Heights of Abraham.

The old mill town of Matlock has a superb range of craft shops, independent stores and bars, whilst the magnificent Chatsworth Estate is just ten miles away.

This delightful cottage is in a great location for discovering fabulous Derbyshire towns and villages, as well as the magnificent walking trails in the Peak District National Park.
