Situated close to the various amenities of Matlock, including a railway station that makes the property easily accessible by both road and rail, the property is a great base for making the most of the surrounding countryside. The hillside position of the property offers outstanding views across the Derwent Valley. Set against the back drop of Jughole Woods, the property is just a short drive from the pretty market town of Bakewell with its many shops and cafes that offers a great place for a gentle stroll. During November Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall have fabulous Christmas markets and other events through the year.

Situated at the end of a farm track, the property is entered via a hallway that’s perfect for keeping muddy boots and outdoor clothes. On this floor there is a study-lounge which opens into a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed. Two stable doors lead out onto the pretty patio garden and add a wonderful sense of country charm to the room.

Upstairs there is a bathroom with underfloor heating and travertine wall and floor tiles. The bathroom contains a bath, shower-over, hand basin and toilet. Steps lead through to the open-plan living space, with a kitchen that is fully equipped with all the essentials. The cosy lounge area provides a lovely space for relaxing and watching TV. The inverted set up of the property makes the most of the spectacular views, and the windows in the living space perfectly frame the vistas of the surrounding landscape.

There is outdoor seating to the front of the property to make the most of the stunning views or a secluded patio area to the back where you can enjoy a BBQ on a summers day.

A very well appointed cottage with stunning views across the Derbyshire countryside. Extremely comfortable bed. The location was ideal for us as we were visiting family in Cromford. Also ideal for visits to places such as Bakewell and Chatsworth. Would certainly consider a return in the future.

It was in a lovely place with lovely views and a good centre for getting places. Amenities nearby, shame the restaurant we wanted to go was closed on Monday. With reference to recommending it to a friend as a lot of our friends are around our age, I am unsure about this

Very comfortable indeed. There is everything you need in the kitchen. Plenty of books and leaflets about the area which proved useful. There is so much to do we were out every day cycling, walking sightseeing. Car essential for this holiday. We had a most enjoyable get away from it all break and hope to return. Thank you.

Highly recommend for a restful and peaceful break with amazing views of Matlock. Easy walking nearby depending on preferences. The cottage itself does not lack any facilities and is a very comfortable home from home. We felt very welcome. Would love to go back in summer and spend more time enjoying it and the surrounding area.
