With character and original features this is a perfect for those looking to get away from it all, situated next to the owners home, down a private drive surrounded by mature trees and passing stream.

Nestling amongst rolling Derbyshire countryside, the surrounding landscape offers some spectacular walking and mountain biking routes, with bike hire available locally. Visit nearby Crich Tramway Village and museum (1.5 miles) for a trip back in time or Gulliver’s Kingdom (6.5 miles) with its ride and attractions. Just 4 miles away is the bustling market town of Belper and slightly further but only 15.5 miles from the property is the famous market town of Bakewell. Home of the famous Bakewell Pudding, you can also visit nearby Chatsworth House, gardens and farm shop which is an unmissable day trip if you’re in the Bakewell area. Matlock Bath and Matlock town are also within easy reach and within a 7-mile radius. The spa town of Buxton (26.5 miles) offers a wealth of independent shops and eateries along with the Buxton Opera House.

Step into the hallway where there is plenty of space for coats and boots. Wander through to the traditional cottage-style kitchen with a stone floor, exposed beams, wood burner and mill stone with seating around. There is an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and microwave. Curl up with a good book in the comfy seating next to the wood burner or relax on the bar stools chatting with the chef. The dining room is a wonderful space to come together and enjoy a family Sunday dinner, with a feature wood burner-effect electric fire in the fireplace and spacious dining furniture for six. There is a handy downstairs WC and a utility room offering a washing machine and tumble dryer. Head upstairs to the lounge which has wood flooring and comfy seating, situated around the open fire and Smart TV. There are two doors leading out to the garden which are lovely to open in the summer months and let the countryside air in. There is a super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom which can be made into twin upon request, with lovely views over mature trees. The shower room offers an enclosed shower and WC. Heading up to the second floor, you will find two lovely bedrooms: a king-size with exposed stonework and beams, and a super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom which can be made into twin upon request, with additional walk-in wardrobe space and views over the garden.
Outside, there are two seating areas situated at the front and the back of the cottage, which are lovely places sit, enjoy the peace and quiet, spot the nature that surrounds you and listen to the sound of running water from the nearby waterfall. You will not find manicured lawns here as the owners focus their efforts on keeping the local wildlife happy and offering them a place to call home. There is a large wildlife pond which has been fenced off, but due to the nature of the location children and animals must be supervised at all times. There is off-road parking for three cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
