  • “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 ...

About 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.

Walkers can enjoy the many great walking areas in the surrounding area, as well as the fantastic Peak District National Park within easy driving distance.

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.

Belper, situated in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site, is a town with a long and famous history dating back to the 13th century, when it was then called Beaurepaire (beautiful retreat), a name that still holds true today. Now you'll find it to be a spirited and bustling town, with attractions including the North Mill, Long Row and the River Gardens. There is a thriving local music and arts scene and the town hosts an annual Arts festival every May as well as Winter and Summer Food festivals and a monthly Farmers Market. The nearby historical village of Wirksworth is also home to a well-established Art and Architecture trail and Arts Festival every September. Just 10 miles away, the popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, are set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent. The Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as a whole host of other exciting attractions. 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! South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst to the north lie the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House - not to be missed! The award-winning town of Belper provides holidaymakers with an excellent base for all that Derbyshire has to offer.
