The property

A lovely, tastefully-finished, end-terrace cottage set alongside the beautiful Chester Green, close to Darley Park in the heart of Derby city centre.

This lovely cottage is in a superb location for exploring this delightful part of the country.

This attractive cottage is set over three floors, with the top floor having a very spacious double bedroom and a twin room with fabulous views over the green.

A further twin and double room can be found on the second floor, along with a large modern bathroom with corner bath and shower.

On the ground floor, the open plan sitting room and dining room is a lovely place to share some time with family and friends, whether you are around the large dining table or relaxing on the comfy sofas snuggled in front of the gas fire.

From the dining area, step through the well-equipped galley kitchen and then on through the French windows into the courtyard.

This private and enclosed patio area is a great place to have a barbecue, possibly washed down with something from the traditional ale house which is just across the way!

Step out of the door and you are immediately on the delightful green.

With a children’s playground, it’s the ideal place to kick a ball around, fly a kite, walk a dog or have a picnic.

If you decide to venture further afield, you are faced with some tough decisions!

Will you be a city slicker and choose the many attractions available on your doorstep such as shopping, great real ale pubs, restaurants, theatres, festivals, many parks and even ghost walks, or will you head for the beautiful surrounding Peak District countryside, such as the stunning Dovedale, Carsington Water, Matlock and Ashbourne, all being a short drive away?

This charming cottage is lovely home-from-home with an exhaustive choice of things to do all year round.

About the location

DERBY

Carsington Water 13 miles; Matlock 18 miles.

Renowned for its friendly citizens, Derby is the UK's most central city. With a full programme of festivals and events throughout the year you are always spoilt for choice. You can find fine food from all corners of the globe and Lonely Planet described it as “The best place to sample real ale in the world”. There’s a wealth of arts, culture and heritage and excellent retail therapy on offer. Derby is also a great base to explore nearby Peak District delights such as Ashbourne with it’s narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses and many fine Georgian buildings or Matlock and Matlock Bath, which has been attracting visitors since the 17th century. A host of attractions await including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham – a great place for all the family with its showcaves, nature trail and water gardens. A little further north is the market town of Bakewell and the world renowned Chatsworth House and Gardens, a lavish stately home with noted art collection plus a playground and farmyard in the lush grounds.
