  • “A lovely find for our short break ...”
    A lovely find for our short break visiting Chatsworth. Very comfortable, warm and relaxing with all the thoughtful extras that make a stay great. The hosts were very nice and on arrival we enjoyed the tour of the cottage provided by the daughter.
    A lovely find for our short break visiting Chatsworth. Very comfortable, warm and relaxing with all the thoughtful extras that make a stay great. The hosts were very nice and on arrival we enjoyed the tour of the cottage provided by the daughter. Directions provided were excellent and we appreciated the prompt replies to questions. Hope to return when next planning another visit to the area.

The property

This lovely stone-built cottage is an annexe to the owners’ home, on the outskirts of the village of Rowsley, close to both Bakewell and Matlock.

As there’s an abundance of activities to suit all ages in the area, this cottage is equally ideal for a couple or a small family.

You enter the cottage into a modern kitchen with Belfast sink and granite work surfaces, then onto a spacious sitting room with dining area which fills with natural light and looks out to the beautiful extensive gardens.

A couple of steps down from the hall is the tasteful bathroom with elegant fixtures befitting this period property, and upstairs is a spacious and light king-size en-suite bedroom, and a twin.

Outside, there’s a sheltered and private courtyard and you are free to stroll the beautiful extensive gardens which are teeming with birdlife and the occasional visiting sheep from the neighbouring farm.

Cyclists are well catered for as the cottage sits at the base of Rowsley Bar, which is listed in the top 100 climbs in Britain.

The Peak Shopping Village designer outlet is just a few hundred yards away, and some of the best gastro pubs and fine dining restaurants in the region are within walking distance.

The majestic Chatsworth House is less than 3 miles away, and head a few miles in one direction to amble around the pretty market town of Bakewell or a few in the opposite direction to enjoy a ride in a cable car, a steam train or a horse and carriage in Matlock and Matlock Bath.

Other nearby local attractions include the Crich Tramway Museum, Carsington Water which is a lovely spot for a picnic, Dovedale and the Tissington Trail, a 13 mile route starting in Ashbourne.

Whenever you go, there is lots to see and do making this a perfect cottage base.

About the location

ROWSLEY

Bakewell 3 miles; Matlock 5 miles.

The pretty village of Rowsley is situated just at the south of stately Chatsworth - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and a stone’s throw from the impressive tudor-built Haddon Hall. This little village has many attractions, including Caldwell's Mill which houses the last water-powered roller flour mill and a range of craft workshops, shops and a restaurant, Peak Rail, which is a rail enthusiasts dream with rides along the valley, and the Peak Village which has many outlet shops with bargains galore together with feature attractions, a fitness centre and an old fashioned sweet shop and ice cream parlour. Rowsley offers a range of village amenities including shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants, excellent fly fishing facilities (day tickets available from the historic Peacock Hotel) and neighbouring the village is the superb Michelin-starred East Lodge Hotel and Restaurant. The village is also a hub for walkers and cyclists with many picturesque Peak District trails being accessible including the Derwent Valley cycle way, the Monsal Trail and the Rowsley Bar Hill Climb. Close by is Bakewell, capital of the Peak District, and home of the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!), still made locally to an old and secret recipe. This picturesque town is at the scenic heart of the Peak District, and further attractions in the area include Gulliver's Kingdom, the shops and eateries of Matlock Bath, and Alton Towers, also within easy touring distance, making the location ideal for the whole family to enjoy.
