Absolutely charming little house which we fell in love with. A part of history. Would definitely recommend. Well renovated and very well equipped - thoughtfully done. Location is also perfect - an easy stroll down into Cromford (2mins), Cromford Mills and canal (10 mins) and easy drive to other towns and attractions nearby.

A lovely period cottage with a modern touch. The kitchen is very well equipped. Located near to all the village amenities. We didn't use the car for three days as there are several circular walks starting from the village. The Boat Inn and Parkies cafe are very dog friendly. A visit to Crich Tramway museum is recommended, again totally dog friendlyRead more. A great property, would definitely stay there again. Hide

This cottage was gorgeous. It's newly decorated and everything felt new & spotless, while still holding on to its historic uniqueness. It's well kitted out with almost anything you could wish for, including sharp knives & even a slow cooker! Note if you have small children: there isn't a bathtub or a washing machine and the steep stairs are perhapsRead more a bit tricky for little legs/climbers. The owners were so kind and helpful with all of our questions and needs and we had a wonderful stay. Hide
