A beautiful cosy cottage with a rich history set just on the edge of the Peak District. The ideal base for walkers, cyclists or just those with a love of pretty villages and historic homes. There are two good pubs in the village and a small local microbrewery less than a mile away, reached via the beautiful Lumsdale Falls, a World Heritage site. Matlock, an old spa town, is less than 2 miles away and Matlock Bath with its dramatic limestone cliffs is close by. Lovers' Walks, a short, flat path near the Derwent River can be enjoyed here or a cable car can be taken to the Heights of Abraham. Cromford, with its rich history and beautiful walks, including along the canal where Richard Arkwright had one of his revolutionary mills is 4 miles away. Carsington Water has a great water sports centre and is set less than 8 miles away. The grand Chatsworth House with its roaming deer is just over 11 miles away and Bakewell is a similar distance with its famous pudding.

Inside there is a light and bright kitchen space, with lots of room to decant your coats and shoes and to rustle up meals to enjoy together. This kitchen leads into a cosy living space, with beautiful, exposed beams and soft leather seating around the smart TV. A cosy electric wood burner makes for an ambient addition to this lovely room. There is a dining table set in front of the large windows, where you can enjoy your meals. Upstairs leads to a family bathroom, and a colourful and bright super-king-size bedroom, with views towards Lumsdale.

Outside the garden is a shared space, with a wooden bench, where you can enjoy this peaceful Derbyshire location.
