    Bakewell tarts waiting for us on our arrival, the fabulous views from the windows and a warm, country feel to the chapel. The wood burning stove in the living area was ideal for an Autumn break. For breakfast we had fresh eggs from Mary`s hens that roamed free round the fields at the back and we had advice on the best eating places in the area. Beyond the chapel we were lucky to have a sunny spell which showed off the glorious colours of the leaves on the many trees in the Derbyshire countryside. We are now looking forward to going back in spring to see the countryside coming back to life again

The property

Crich 3.3 miles.

This is an outstanding converted chapel, set in the grounds of the owners' home, in the rural hamlet of Wheatcroft conveniently located between Crich and Matlock.

Packed with character and charm throughout, the cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all, enjoying true country living and yet be within easy reach of some lovely villages and towns.

As soon as you arrive, you know you'll be staying somewhere very special.

Enter into the hallway with room for coats and boots and a cloakroom.

This leads to a well-equipped kitchen and then up three steps to where The Old Chapel really comes into its own.

There is a fantastic sitting room with vaulted ceiling and woodburning stove where you can sit and relax with a refreshing drink.

Overlooking the sitting room and up the spiral stairs, there is a beautiful mezzanine bedroom, with wooden carved beams, curved ceiling and an en-suite bathroom.

Outside is a pretty patio, overlooking a wild meadow with stunning views over the Amber Valley, and just the spot to enjoy your morning coffee or an after dinner glass of wine.

Exploring the beauty of the Derbyshire Dales is within easy reach on the public footpath which is to the side of the cottage.

The cottage is the perfect base from which to explore the region's many attractions, including Chatsworth House and Carsington Water and Sailing Club.

A fabulous romantic cottage in an idyllic location.

About the location


Matlock 7 miles.

The village of Crich (known as Cardale in the hit TV series Peak Practice) is full of character and history, and boasts a number of shops and several pubs. There are walks around the village, and trams (the village is home to the National Tramway Museum) move up the valley to some of the most beautiful views of the Derbyshire Dales. Matlock, 7 miles away, offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as Gulliver’s Kingdom. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show-caves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, while to the north are the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park and Haddon Hall, with Carsington Water offering fantastic watersports - not to be missed! Ideal at any time of year!
