  • "A relaxing break in a lovely location."

    Cottage was very comfortable and cosy, everything we needed for our stay. The welcome pack was appreciated. Great to be able to use pool and jacuzzi every day. Helen and Laurence were responsive and nothing was too much trouble even though they were very busy lambing

  • "Really nice cottage, contained everything we needed, clean and comfortable."

    Lovely welcome pack and sole use of the swimming pool and jacuzzi at arranged times with Helen was amazing. I would highly recommend a stay at Adelaide Cottage and we hope to return again next year.

  • "A lovely getaway cottage in a quiet area off Snelston, we really enjoyed what Adelaide Cottage had to offer."

    A very private location, farm animal encounters and a lovely host. More than enough amenities, anything needed was supplied when asked for. The cottage was clean, nicely decorated and very cosy. Helen made sure we made the most of our stay and was so kind. We especially adored the pet cat and ducks. Pool is extremely well kept and we were given plenty of opportunities to use it during the week. Welcomed with complementary goods, the host mentioned she’s planning to introduce a welcome pack for the cottage. The area has nice walks but you must be devoted to walking about at least 40 minutes to reach nearest point of interest - the national trust’s Manor and the Norbury Church. With a car, you will make the most out of the area with quicker access to the surrounding villages and sites. I would recommend taking a bike as we found the nearby roads are perfect for a bike ride. Overall a fantastic and well needed stay, we truly wish the best for the owners on their future endeavours. Thankyou!

    Thank you both for your wonderful comments. So glad you had a great holiday. Also, thank you so much for the drawing of Pepper our cat! It's amazing Property Owner

Set on a working farm with a grand farmhouse and two lakes in the grounds, Adelaide Cottage is a fantastic choice for couples looking to get away from it all.

After finding the designated parking spaces, step into this charming abode, discovering the living/dining room where you can flick on the electric fire and cosy up with a good movie.

Move into the country style kitchen, where you will be assisted by an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and even a washing machine, so you can easily freshen up your wardrobe!

Be sure to take advantage of the on-site facilities, including an indoor swimming pool with Jacuzzi, providing endless hours of entertainment during those rainy days.

Come morning, enjoy a coffee whilst planning your itinerary, starting with a visit to the Darley Moor, where you'll find a café, or head to Roston and enjoy a pint at the Roston Inn.

When you’re ready to tackle the day, begin your travels into the National Park, dotted with superb walking trails, landmarks and the chance to cycle, horse ride and canoe across the park; visit Reynards Cave, climb up to Manifold Valley, or follow the Wolfscote Dale trail.

About the location


Matlock 15.7 miles; Bakewell 16.6 miles; Chatsworth 20.4 miles.

A pretty little village, Rocester lies on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border, located on a triangle of land between the River Churnet and River Dove. The site of a Roman fort exists today and the village was also mentioned in the Domesday Book. Rocester is home to the famous JCB factory, and the company has landscaped the surrounding area to provide some wonderful walks with some interesting sculptures around the site and the nearby parkland. Most significant of these is The Fossor, which is made entirely of digger parts and is a powerful representation of JCB. Rocester is halfway along the Staffordshire Way which runs the length of Staffordshire and is also at the start of the Limestone Way which goes to Matlock. Close to Rocester is the lovely market town of Ashbourne, and just a short drive away is Alton Towers, with fun for all the family. Explore either the Staffordshire or Derbyshire part of the Peak District National Park with historic houses, market towns, moorland, rolling hills and valleys, all easily accessible from Rocester.
