  • “Great holiday base with lots to explore on the doorstep (without needing the car) if you are interested in industrial history (or just beautiful country).”

    We did a lot of walking and outside activities due to Covid. Cromford has a range of small independent shops - including a famous bookshop and an amazing chocolatier with chocolates made on the premises. Cromford Mill has a lovely cheese shop which also sells locally produced biscuits, cakes and other treats.

    We did a lot of walking and outside activities due to Covid. Cromford has a range of small independent shops - including a famous bookshop and an amazing chocolatier with chocolates made on the premises.

Also a butchers/deli, post office and small general store in the village just a couple of minutes walk, and also pubs/cafes/takeaways. Well equipped flat with everything you need. We also had a call from the housekeeping company to confirm bed layout before we went. The flat was very clean with plenty of loo roll for four people (mentioned in other review). Having off street parking was great (wedding shop mentioned in other reviews was closed, so no one else was attempting to park in the car parking area). Blinds are fitted to the velux windows in the bedrooms now - a criticism in some earlier reviews. The wheelie bins had migrated up the road and were outside the Mill Manager's house. The owner responded very quickly to an email to confirm they were the ones to use for our rubbish. We really enjoyed our holiday - thank you!

The property

This apartment has been beautifully converted from the first floor of The Old Carriage House as part of The Mill Managers House in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cromford Mills, in the heart of the Derbyshire village.

Holding reams of character, luxuriously appointed throughout with beautiful wooden floors, beams and stonework and with a thoughtful family bedroom, this could be the perfect Peak District holiday for you and your loved ones.

Enter through the original ledge and brace door into the stone floored porch area.

Then take the bespoke internal staircase to reach this wonderful apartment, the whitewashed stone wall gives an instant sense of charm.

Be welcomed into The Carriage House in wonderful style; its high specification open-plan dining kitchen attractively combines a wide range of high-quality, modern appliances with old rustic features, including the wooden bench dining table seating 8 and striking overhead beams.

The sitting area, with two cosy leather sofa beds, is enhanced by a light-filled picture window looking out towards the quaint street below and stunning exposed stonework and beams.

Traditional latch doors lead you to the two en-suite bedrooms, both with impressive roof height beams and even more character.

The first bedroom offers a convenient zip/link bed and luxury shower facilities whilst the main bedroom contains a zip/link bed, a single bed and a stunning bathroom of its own.

To the outside of this splendid retreat is a well-kept pebbled garden; sit out here and enjoy an alfresco BBQ with the whole family.

This wonderful Derbyshire village offers a wealth of superb amenities including the famous Scarthin bookshop, friendly pubs and coffee shops as well as superior access to some of Derbyshire's finest attractions.

Matlock and the neighbouring Matlock Bath are within a stone's throw, bursting with class and plenty to see and do. Activities including Gulliver's Kingdom, a number of National Trust properties and the awe-inspiring Peak District National Park are within easy touring distance.

A tasteful, enticing apartment perfect for that long-awaited family break.
