  • “We had a lovely holiday even if it was only for a week.”


    The cottage was spacious for six of us. We loved being in the cottage with a beautiful open field view. We appreciated the welcome pack which encouraged us to frequently visit the vending machine for daily milk, eggs, bread, and cream. You do not need to over pack like we did. The cottage was well equipped, there are additional towels provided for the hot tub, which was not mentioned, so happy days. If you enjoy cycling, perhaps you may combine a day trip to Bakewell, stop over at the Hassop Station for cycling (you can rent bicycle from the cycle shop there) then reward yourselves with a nice lunch at the Hassop Station café. Many thanks to the owners for their thoughtfulness. Steve has been very helpful throughout our stay and easily contactable by a text or call, so thank you very much!

The property

Resting within striking distance of the Peak District National Park is this superbly appointed, Grade II listed dwelling, Woodthorpe Cruck Cottage.

This stone-built property, filled with charming original features, offers a heart-warming retreat for a family looking to explore this wonderful area of Derbyshire.

Nestled away within a 100 acres of farmland, but a mere 300-yard drive from the main road, this cottage promises a tranquil stay throughout the year.

It comes with three well-presented bedrooms, consisting of a family bedroom with two single beds, a king-size bedroom and a standard bedroom, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit your family.

On the first floor, you will also find an elegantly appointed bathroom, where you can choose a refreshing shower or a relaxing soak after a busy day hiking within the Peak District National Park.

On the ground floor you will be charmed by the contemporary fittings and the new oak beams which complement the listed beam structure.

The amply equipped kitchen offers a wonderful place to rustle up your evening meals, with the warmth of the roaring woodburning fire to fill the room with charm.

Look forward to unwinding of an evening within the sitting room, where you and your loved ones can sink into the sofa, which sits in front of an additional woodburning fire, perfect for those chilly winter evenings.

Step outside to find a spacious garden area, where you can enjoy the superb countryside views before dipping into the warming hot tub, where you can truly unwind.

If you don’t feel like cooking, a short stroll will bring you to the local pub, which offers an outstanding dining menu.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful property, venture into the market town of Chesterfield which offers superb historical features to explore and bustling market days to enjoy some specialist shops and stalls.

If you are feeling more active, head to the picturesque Peak District National Park, where you will find breath-taking scenery and plenty of outdoor opportunities to enjoy.

Woodthorpe Cruck Cottage promises a excellent stay within a delightful location.

About the location


Chesterfield 5 miles; Matlock 7 miles.

Clay Cross is a small town on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The town is home to a varied range of shops, pubs and excellent restaurants. Just a few miles away is the historic market town of Chesterfield which acts as the gateway to the Peak District, and has much to offer visitors. The town is famous for its 14th Century church with "Crooked Spire", twisting curiously from its true centre, while the frequent bustling market days are ideal for exploring the many different specialist shops and stalls which line the old Market Hall and charming Shambles beyond. The town also boasts Queens Park, with its boating lake, walks and summer bandstand, as well as a museum and theatre. Nearby, the Elizabethan Hardwick Hall is still impressive today, with its 6 grand towers elaborately monogramed with Bess of Hardwick’s initials, overlooking the superb gardens and walled courtyards of the grounds. Also popular is the semi-ruined 17th Century mansion of Bolsover Castle, set high on a wooded hilltop, looking west towards the heights of the Peak District. The area has a host of other attractions within easy reach, such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, the amenities of Matlock and Bakewell, or the Opera House at Buxton. An interesting base for a varied break.
