  • "Lovely stay at The Cottage."

    Clean and warm on arrival (keysafe). Very comfy beds and seating. WiFi connection good and reliable. Very spacious property with good size fridge and freezer. Downstairs bedroom and shower room really useful. Downstairs shower had great pressure (12" step). Fully equipped with everything you need for self catering. Private secure parking. OK there are no views from the property but lovely quiet walks direct from property with views and close to Shipley park which is massive with nature reserves. A few things needed to improve , no matches or kindling left for fire, needs a local information pack, heavy wooden gates to private parking drag on the floor and difficult to open and close without physically lifting. Advised by Sykes owners choose not to provide any contact details and any contact is via Sykes, contact details would be helpful . Would book again without hesitation .

  • "Bedrooms and lounge very good."

    Log burner worked well. Garden excellent for spring and summer use. Downstairs shower room somewhat dirty, radiator not working and rusty, shelf needed for toiletries. No shower in main bathroom so difficult for hair washing plus no bath mat. Approximately 12 light bulbs need replacement in the property. Driveway to property very poor with deep pot holes everywhere.

  • "The stay was lovely and we had a lovely stay at the cottage, however it is in need of a little loving, as in a lick of paint here and there."

    The cottage was very cosy and warm and when you had the fire on it soon warmed you up. Very clean. Yes we would stay there again.

  • "It is a great cottage in a lovely location."

    House had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Places to eat include the Old Black Horse steps away and further away the Bottle Kiln and Nutbrook coffee shop although that’s only open Fridays and weekends. We loved all the walks nearby at Shipley Country Park and other country lanes. Would recommend for a relaxing break.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Cottage."

    With a great pub next door, walking routes in all directions including to the excellent Nutbrook cafe and plenty of comfort and facilities in the Cottage itself, it was perfect. Looking forward to returning already!

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Lovely and clean. Really enjoyed our visit. Some lovely walks around the area and the food at the pub next door and the Nutbrook cafe were wonderful.

  • "Spotless, quiet & comfortable cottage with plenty of kitchen utensils, crockery etc."

    Comfortable beds but downstairs bathroom needs a shelf for toothbrushes, paste etc and a mirror. Otherwise a perfect stay.

  • "This is a really lovely cottage."

    It was very comfortable (especially the beds!) We found it very clean and well maintained. It’s in an ideal situation for exploring the surrounding countryside and places of interest. The garden is lovely and would be great in the summer and the pub next door serves excellent food. Our only comment would be that it would be helpful to have instructions for the appliances especially the cooker and dishwasher. Would certainly recommend it to friends. A lovely place to unwind!

  • "Excellent property in a lovely location."

    There are just a few comments which, hopefully will help: It would have been helpful if a welcome pack of information had been available which included how to use appliances, recycling info, nearest shops etc. A small vacuum cleaner to help keep the place tidy might be worth considering. A more accurate what3words reference is: clarifies.baseline.swooning and advises that the location of the cottage is on the right hand site of main street after passing the pub

The property

West Hallam 1.2 miles.

Nestled near the large village of West Hallam in Derbyshire is The Cottage.

This wonderful holiday home welcomes up to five guests in three bedrooms and boasts a spacious, enclosed rear garden with lawn, patio and furniture as well as a welcoming woodburning stove, making a wonderful setting for a family getaway to Derbyshire.

After meandering the nearby walks and trails, settle into the homely living room, snuggle up on the plush corner sofa and flick on the Smart TV while the woodburning stove crackles soothingly.

The designated chef of the group will feel at home in the fully-equipped kitchen where they can rustle up tasty meals for the whole group to enjoy at the large dining table; later step into your private garden and enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets over Derbyshire.

Choose from three bedrooms, a ground-floor king-size serviced by a ground-floor shower room, and a king-size and single on the first floor serviced by a bathroom.

Be sure to get some well-earned rest before another busy day exploring.

The Cottage lies just paces away from The Old Black Horse local pub, a great place to spend an evening out, it is also close to the village of West Hallam with stores to ease your self-catered stay and a number of attractions, including Shipley Country Park and Victoria Park.

Or visit the historic city of Derby where you can explore The Derby Museum and Art Gallery, a great place to learn about the city's history, or Derby Cathedral, a beautiful Gothic building.

The adventurous among you will want to try your hand at roller skating at Rollerworld Derby which is a great place to enjoy some roller skating fun.

Nottingham is also nearby and is rich in history and culture; venture to Nottingham Castle, built in 1068 or the Robin Hood Statue, which commemorates the legendary outlaw.

The City of Caves, located beneath the city centre, is a labyrinth of man-made caves and tunnels that date back to the Dark Ages and is well worth the visit.

There are also plenty of restaurants and bars to refuel in, including The Soulville Steakhouse, known for its delicious steaks.

Choose The Cottage as the base for your next getaway to Derbyshire.

About the location


Nottingham 7.2 miles; Derby 9.7 miles; Matlock 21.7 miles

The Derbyshire town of Ilkeston sits on the Erewash river, just seven miles from Nottingham. The town has a rich history in the coal mining, iron working and lace making industries, all of which have since disappeared, and today visitors can explore the Victorian Erewash Museum and Gardens, play a round of golf at Erewash Valley Golf Club or Pewit Golf Course and enjoy afternoon strolls around Victoria Park, as well as find a good selection of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Nearby, the 16th century Wollaton Hall, Gardens and Deer Park boasts acres of parkland, a natural history museum and a golf course and is a must visit. The university city of Nottingham, known as the home of Robin Hood, is just over seven miles away and brimming with attractions and entertainment. Here you can see world-class sport, live performances and outstanding art, as well as experience fine dining at Michelin star restaurants and shop at unique independent stores. Slightly further afield, Derby has much to attract visitors with its shopping facilities and Cathedral Quarter, offering a great selection of cafes, restaurants and bars.
