  • “The cottage itself was lovely, lots of space and well provided with kitchen items.”

    A kind welcome pack of milk, juice and chocolates was a lovely start to our holiday. The outlook across from the cottage is rural, with sheep grazing in the field, which our daughter loved to see each morning! Took us a while to locate the walk to the wood from the cottage, we have left instructions in the guest book as it is lovely once you find it! The main road, which is 100 yards from the cottage, is very busy and exiting the property by car is troublesome. The direct locality isn't ...

    A kind welcome pack of milk, juice and chocolates was a lovely start to our holiday. The outlook across from the cottage is rural, with sheep grazing in the field, which our daughter loved to see each morning! Took us a while to locate the walk to the wood from the cottage, we have left instructions in the guest book as it is lovely once you find it! The main road, which is 100 yards from the cottage, is very busy and exiting the property by car is troublesome. The direct locality isn't particularly rural, but on the plus side there are plenty of options for shopping and take aways locally. There isn't a dishwasher, it would just make self catering for a larger group easier if one could be accommodated in the future. Overall the cottage is really comfortable and within half an hour of many interesting places. We used it as a base to visit Chatsworth, Carsington Water, Gulliver's Kingdom, Bakewell and many beautiful Peak District villages.

About the property

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.

About the location

GOLDEN VALLEY

Riddings 1 mile; Alfreton 3 miles.

The small hamlet of Golden Valley close to the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border is situated a few miles from Alfreton and within reach of the Peak District National Park. A mile away is the village of Riddings, which has pubs, and a larger selection of pubs, as well as shops, supermarkets and a Post Office can be found in the town of Alfreton. Crich, the home of the National Tramway Museum is 4 miles away, and Matlock, 8 miles away, also offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions including Gulliver's Kingdom. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show-caves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. A little bit further away is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, while other places to discover include the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and park and Haddon Hall, with Carsington Water offering fantastic watersports - not to be missed! Ideal at any time of year!
