  • "Loved the place and so near belper town centre, but road leading to cottage very bumpy."

    Shame about the seating in the living room as other people have said the sofa and chairs are really uncomfortable

  • "The cottage is beautiful and has so much character."

    We were really impressed when we first arrived. We stayed with 2 young children and they loved the duplo and children’s books, as well as the spacious garden to run around in. All the beds were super comfortable The only issue we had was that you could hear a lot of noise in between rooms but put that down to the fact it was a traditional older cottage. We were able to visit a few places so great location. We loved staying there!

  • "Wat een heerlijk verblijf in deze cottage!"

    We hebben zowel van het huis als van de tuin genoten. Kleine suggestie: Het zou fijn zijn als er nog iets meer informatie over de omgeving beschikbaar is.

  • "Very clean and comfortable."

    Lacking slightly in utensils and suitable drinking glasses. Not very private internally as noise travels easily upstairs. We were 4 people all over 80 years and the stairs were a challenge. Very convenient and central for daily visits to other towns. Ideal location for younger people and families.

    Lots of character. In a good location being close to the town centre.

  • "A lovely stay at a really cosy cottage."

    Great base for walking in the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales, and good local pubs and restaurants. The unusual stairs are challenging, but the sensor nightlight is really helpful, as some gaps in the doors and wood panels do make switching the lights off a necessity! The directions emailed send you to William Street not George Street so watch out for that too. Great week's holiday just when we needed it. Thank you.

  • "Overall a really pleasant week at Chevin View, we appreciated the way the cottage has been renovated, it’s well presented, warm and a bit quirky with a lovely garden in a quiet location that’s a short walk from Belper centre, but you need to take care if you’re really tall or infirm, due to low doorways and the stairway junction on the first floor!"

    Having said that, we’re pensioners and we managed! It’s well equipped with quality kitchen items and also has comfortable beds, nice thick, white towels and good showers. We couldn’t get comfy on the lounge furniture though and would strongly recommend it being replaced - it only seats four people too. No welcome pack on arrival, not even tea and coffee, or salt and pepper pots. This may have been an oversight but don’t expect it to be there. We wouldn’t hesitate to return if the seating was addressed as it is a really nice place.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Chevin View."

    The property and gardens were a great base for our trip. The location was perfect, Belper town, train/bus station and rural walks all on the doorstep. We really enjoyed the garden at the property, which had a large lawn for the kids to play safely. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we slept well at the property. A couple of things to note, the stairs are narrow and were tricky to navigate for our less abled. Low doorways, we had a few bumps on the head. Sound travelled easily in the property, not an issue for us as a close family group, but something to be aware of. We also thought the seating in the lounge area was not comfortable for relaxing in front of the TV. The weather was good for us though, so we spent our evenings in the garden ☺️ Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Highly recommended. Spacious accommodation both inside and out, although time of year restricted outdoor use. Convenient for having parking off road as road was busy with parked cars.

  • "Had a wonderful stay at Chevin."

    The location is fabulous for walking into the town and right on the door stop for the surrounding villages and exploring the peak district. Super comfy beds, lovely shower and fab spacial sized kitchen really well equipped. Loved all the original details, beautiful sash windows and brick fireplaces. The third floor attic style room is a lovely ensuite haven decorated really nicely. Quiet, cosy, helpful friendly host and neighbours too, will definitely return.

  • "A beautiful property, in a very surprising town!"

    The cottage is beautifully furnished with all the kitchen wear, cushions and facilities you are likely to need. The bathrooms and brilliant and we loved the wood burner. The only improvement I could suggest is the single under the window has seen better days...it very squeaky and saggy! The location is perfect...so close to some stunning scenery, and the town a shirt stroll down the quaint lanes, and Belper took us by surprise. Some lovely independent ships and great eateries. We loved it! Highly recommend this cute cottage.

  • "We had an enjoyable holiday but the house fell short in quite a few aspects compared with our normal experiences with Sykes properties."

    These shortcomings were also voiced by previous guests - parking only suitable for one car, not two as stated. Poor access to fridge freezer. Unsuitable dining table, especially with little ones in the property. Cleaning not thorough. Dirt under sofas and seats. Badly stained toilet in main bathroom. Lack of a broom, ash pan and brush. There was not a comprehensive supply of replacement bulbs. There was no comprehensive information in a folder about appliances, emergencies, I e. Smoke alarms going off . Important Contacts etc.

  • "We really enjoyed our week at Chevin View and were blessed with glorious weather - so the outside space really came into its own."

    We appreciated the privacy of the garden, there was always some shade to be had and we were grateful for the outside table, benches & deckchairs. A great location with the friendly facilities of Belper town within easy walking distance and lots of interest close at hand in the Derwent Valley and Peak District. A problem with a leaky shower was fixed very quickly and efficiently, thanks to Sykes and the owner for that. I'd suggest that some more information about the surrounding area within the cottage would be helpful to visitors.

  • "Chevin view is a beautiful, fully kitted out house that was absolutely perfect for us and our 4 children."

    The house is perfectly clean with everything you could need. The garden is absolutely immense! Our children played in it every day and we had a lovely BBQ one evening. The town of Belper is a 2 minute walk away with restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets. The river gardens are beautiful and they have a play park, ice cream van and a play area. I would recommend the Crich tram museum, Gulivars theme park and waterworld for days out. The house is ideally located for a fun packed family holiday and the owners are lovely. We had a superb week at Chevin view and would throughly recommend this beautiful house to any family.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Chevin View!"

    The cottage is in a great location for the train station, local pubs and shops, and is surrounded by great views. Only a couple of things that I think may need to be amended is in the ensuite there is a flickering light, which can be quite irritating. Also, every evening around 10pm there was an unpleasant smell that filled the lounge and kitchen. We tried to look for the cause but couldn’t find anything to stop the smell, and so had to buy some air fresheners. Lastly the sofas in the lounge were rather uncomfortable and hard, however this is just a personal opinion. Overall, we had a wonderful holiday and are sure to visit Belper again one day in the future.

  • "A lovely cottage in a very pretty little town."

    The cottage is very well equipped and tastefully decorated. One small thing however, the pillows are very thick and firm so not very comfy for sleeping on unfortunately (we ended up purchasing some softer ones), but otherwise everything was very good. Some excellent walks nearby and we enjoyed the garden which is so peaceful. Some relaxing garden chairs would be good for future guests since the weather was so warm but we improvised using cushions on the bench. Would recommend the property as a good base for exploring the surrounding area.

The property

Nestled in the historic industrial town of Belper, surrounded by the Derbyshire countryside and not far from the wonderful Peak District National Park, is this traditional mill manager's house, Chevin View.

A semi-detached, three-storey dwelling, Chevin View is perfectly suited to a family of six seeking a UK staycation full of scenic walks and fascinating, historic attractions.

Be welcomed into the property after walking through the pretty, enclosed front garden, stepping straight into the homely sitting room where a chesterfield sofa, and matching armchair and wingback chair, offer a spot to unwind before the traditional woodburning stove with a Smart TV to entertain.

Walk beneath the original beams and atop the polished wooden floor over to the spacious kitchen, featuring exposed brick to add character aside the more contemporary glass dining table, while powder blue fitted units house a great range of appliances for rustling up delicious home-cooked meals to enjoy.

Spend time outside in the lovely enclosed garden, with a patio area to sit out on in the summer months, perfect for alfresco dining and soaking up the sun.

Head upstairs to the first floor to find a beautiful king-size bedroom overlooking the garden, a sleek shower room to for refreshing showers, and a twin room which is ideal for little ones and home to a selection of children's books for a lovely bedtime story.

Completing the layout of this 19th century abode is the second-floor double bedroom, offering a private setting to catch your rest, and benefitting from an en-suite shower room.

The award-winning Belper high street is just a short walk away, you can leave your car parked on the off-road parking space and explore on foot, browsing the great selection of independent shops and boutiques, with plenty of restaurants and pubs to choose from too.

The ground-breaking 'skyscraper technology' which is used the world over, where a fire proof iron frame is the basis for a structure, was first conceived in this Derbyshire town; learn about this conception at Strutt's North Mill Museum, with a fascinating insight into the Industrial Revolution within this former cotton mill.

Enjoy strolls around the town admiring the sights like Long Row and The Clusters, St John's Chapel, which is the oldest building in town and home to the Belper Heritage Centre, and the Nail Makers Workshop, while the Belper River Gardens are delightful for a picnic, hosting special events throughout the year.

Carsington Water is perfect for an active family seeking some adventure, with plenty of watersports to choose from like sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and rowboat hire, as well as a great cycling trail around the lake and fishing available too.

The delights of Matlock and Matlock Bath offer plenty to keep your busy too, with the Heights of Abraham, Gulliver's Kingdom theme park and Matlock Bath Aquarium and Arcade all worth visiting.

Enjoy a wonderful break to Derbyshire with the family at Chevin View.
