    Very thoughtful welcome package and lovely owners. The cottage was warm, clean and extremely well equipped. Only stayed 3 nights but wish we’d booked a week! We had a lovely meal at the Boat inn which is only 5 minutes walk away. Hope to be able to visit again in the future.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Bedehouse cottage."

    Welcomed by a lovely clean and cozy cottage and a great welcome pack with nice touches for our son (which we haven’t had before) which made him feel very welcome too. We appreciated the books and toys in the cottage, especially as I had forgotten to pack some! Only niggle was having no where in the bathroom to put toiletries. I saw that this had been mentioned a lot in the visitors book too dating back to 2015! Easily remedied with a small shelving unit as there is plenty of space. The twin bedroom could really benefit from a chest of draws as well. We struggled with only one towel per person for a weeks stay. Next time I would bring more of our own towels with us.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a bathroom shelf and a shower caddy for guests toiletries in the bathroom. The review from 2015 was remedied several years ago! With regard to the towels, if any additional towels were required during your stay we would have been more than happy to supply. Property Owner

  • "Our 5 stars says it all."

    It’s a wonderful place to stay. Very clean, well-equipped, spacious and conveniently situated. It has flat parking, unlike many cottages in the Peaks. It's a very old cottage with slightly limited headroom immediately next to the outside walls upstairs but that is only to be expected in a cottage of this age and adds to the charm. A very supportive and helpful owner (next door) who does not intrude unless asked. We’ve stayed there many times!

  • "We had a fabulous stay here."

    It is so well equipped with everything you could need. It’s a perfect location to explore Derbyshire and Cromford itself is lovely. Short walk to local pubs and Parkys which is a bistro/cafe. Also you can walk to the mill and canal easily. Walk back up a steep hill is a little more of an effort. Our host was lovely and left us a welcome pack which was so nice. For me the only reason I didn’t give top marks for comfort was because the double bed had a very hard mattress which I found difficult to get used to so a couple of poor nights sleep until I got used to it - but that’s personal preference and some people might be used to a hard mattress already. All in all a wonderful stay.

    It was comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners Sarah and David live next door and are very helpful without being intrusive. On this occasion the chilly weather prevented us from sitting out in the outside garden area which is opposite the cottage, but it is there for those who stay in warmer weather. For walkers, Cromford is an ideal place with many walking trails accessible from the village, as well as those a little further away. It has pubs, cafes, a village shop and an excellent bookshop. For anyone like ourselves who do not have their own transport, Cromford is an excellent base as the public transport links are good in several directions giving access to Wirksworth, Ashbourne, Derby, Matlock, Bakewell and many other places. We highly recommend this cottage and intend to return again ourselves in the future.

  • "We loved Bedehouse cottage."

    The house was very clean and comfortable and beautifully presented. The owner had left a lovely table of goodies on arrival and everything you might need in the kitchen, which was excellent! The only thing that we would suggest is maybe a chest of drawers in the bedrooms for clothes that aren’t being hung up and possible a shelf in the bathroom as there wasn’t anywhere to put wash bags and toiletries. But these really are just minor suggestions. We really loved the house and the whole experience was very easy and convenient and just what we were looking for. It didn’t effect our stay as it was winter time but we were expecting a small garden/terrace as mentioned in one of the reviews but couldn’t see one? Perhaps the review is an old review?

    Many thanks for your feedback. We will be installing a bathroom shelf in the next couple of weeks for toiletries etc.. We do feel there is adequate drawer space in the home, with the main bedroom having 7 drawers in total, and the second bedroom having shelving within the wardrobe. The outside seating is as per the photographs online and is directly adjacent the cottage , outside the lounge window.

However, again the details about the cottage were very misleading, the noise from the road was horrendous, we didn't know there was a quarry 100 yards up the road and the lorries started thundering up and down and the road at 5 am. The traffic was non stop all day. The cottage said it had a seating area. It did but it was away from the cottage and you couldn't see the front door from where you were sat, so we felt we had to keep locking the front door but again it was 50 yards from the traffic noise. Obviously the owners can't do anything about the road but it should have been stated in the details that there is road noise.

The only minor drawback was the lack of a drier which could be easily remedied by replacing the washer with a washer drier. However, I imagine most visitors wouldn't need this facility. The cottage is situated in an area of great historical interest and is in wonderful and spectacular walking country. The owner, who lives next door, provided fresh milk, wine, coffee (filter & capsules!) and biscuits.

The cottage is approximately 5 minutes walk to the centre of Cromford village. The cottage is ideally situated for walking, of which there are many walking route suggestions in the cottage. The local area is steeped in industrial history, with Richard Arkwright's Cromford Mills and Masson Mills nearby. A visit to Matlock Bath is highly recommended, being a seaside town complete with multiple fish & chip shops, amusements, candy floss, a promenade, cable cars (Heights of Abraham) etc, just one missing factor from Matlock Bath being a seaside town...that is...the sea. All in all a very pleasant and enjoyable holiday cottage.

    The welcome pack was the icing on the cake & we were very grateful. The cottage is situated perfectly for days out, Poole cavern is a must see & walking to solomans peak is worth it for the breath taking views. Cromford Mill & heights of abraham make a great day out. We went home via the monkey forest which was really lovely. The tapas terrace in cromford is just delicious but you need to book!!! The greyhound is expensive but beautiful & the boat in is perfect pub grub. All in all the week has been perfect made so by staying in such a lovely area & a wonderful cottage.

    The generous welcome pack from Sarah was much appreciated. The kitchen was well thought out and again, generously, provided us with all we needed to enjoy our stay. An unusual bonus to have Sky tv, although there is so much to see and do in the immediate area that there was very little time to spend watching tv! A great way to spend a holiday, in a charming cottage, well located with easy access to the centre of Cromford and lots of lovely walks on your doorstep.

    Very clean and tidy. The only thing that I would add, is the twin room didn't have a wardrobe. I took my mum away for 1 week, and there wasn't anywhere to hang her clothes in her room, although she could've shared mine she felt it would've been an inconvenient. OWNER RESPONSE: thank you for your comments. A wardrobe has now been ordered for the twin room also.

    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 owners are next door, and are available if you need them, which we didn't. Really good broadband, and it's unusual to have Sky TV. Cromford is a very interesting place. Right in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage site, and lots of interest - the origins of the industrial revolution. The countryside is very attractive, and of course, there's Chatsworth not far away. And the fishing..... well that's for another day!

    Being an old cottage it does stay cooler inside, even when it is hot outside. We stayed in June and had great weather the cottage is ideally located for walking and visiting places such as Cromford Mills, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and The Heights of Abraham all of which are no more than 5 to 25 minutes’ drive away. The village is a pretty village incorporating pubs, fish and chips take away, local shop, however Matlock is only a few miles away for the larger shop at Sainsbury’s. For a great view of the Heights of Abraham take a trip to the White Lion at Starkholmes which had great pub food, also a public footpath leading to Matlock Bath. Would definitely recommend a stay in this cottage.
