This spacious late 1600s, semi-detached cottage which forms part of a traditional range of farm buildings set around a courtyard is on the northern side of the Golden Valley next to the village of Riddings, providing a fantastic base for families and those with pets.
This lovely, traditional home from home is full of charm and has four comfortable bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities.
Downstairs there’s a cosy sitting room with low ceilings and oak beams where you can relax at the end of the day, a spacious dining room again with low ceilings and oak beams and an open fire, and a lovely farmhouse style breakfast kitchen with quarry tiles, beams and a Belfast sink.
There’s a lovely cottage garden to the front and side, perfect for a barbecue and chilling out in the sun.
A really fantastic feature of this cottage is it has a paddock and field with walks all the way down into the valley which means you can step out the door and walk into the valley without ever going near a road.
Quite amazing when you think it’s situated very conveniently for the local shops, eateries and real ale pubs.
Take a stroll around Codnor Park Reservoir, jump on a steam train at the nearby Midland Railway Centre, or even try your hand at carp fishing.
There’s a good golf course nearby and plenty of attractions with Matlock, Bakewell and Chatsworth all within easy reach.
A superb cottage that you can enjoy at any time of the year.
