This 300-year-old stone cottage offers the perfect blend of period charm and contemporary conveniences in an unbeatable village location with a walled courtyard perfect for summer evenings.

Located in the heart of the old part of the stone built Derbyshire village of Calver, the property is within walking distance of the local shops, cafes and gallery. Spreading across the floor of the Derwent Valley, the village is surrounded by stunning scenery and walking routes, including gristone edges, heather clad moorland, grassy heights and limestone outcrops. The family-run – and allegedly haunted – Derwentwater Arms sits overlooking the village and cricket field, the perfect spot to enjoy a pub lunch.

The property is entered through the pretty stone wall and iron front fence into the dining hall. With stone flagged floors and an original decorative fireplace with traditional gritstone surround, this is a suitably grand venue in which to enjoy your evening meals. Beyond the dining room, the newly refurbished kitchen is fitted with a Rayburn Range Cooker and stocked with everything you should need throughout your stay. On sunny evenings, guests can enjoy an al fresco meal in the private courtyard located through the kitchen. Once you’ve finished your meals, head to the sitting room to relax next to the log burning stove in one of the many sofas under the beamed ceiling.

A twin bedroom, which has 2 steps down, and it has its own en-suite shower room is also located on this floor, while the three remaining bedrooms can be found upstairs. The master bedroom features a super king-size bed with an en-suite shower room. There is a second bedroom with twin beds and tranquil views across fields. The final bedroom has a double bed and enjoys views to Curber Gap. All bedrooms on this floor have access to the family bathroom which has a large shower cubicle, bath, toilet and hand wash basin.

Outside is a private walled courtyard with afternoon sun, ideal for BBQs.

A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous village - a real home away from home. Plenty of space for our party of 6 adults & 2 children, never felt on top of each other at any stage. Everything you need has been thought of and provided, to a top standard, and its a lovely stroll to a wonderful pub and an excellent shop. Within easy driving distance to many Read moreplaces of interest, too many to list here, and lovely walks right from the door. We will be back! Hide

A gorgeous and idyllic cottage with plenty of space for 8 people. Lovely welcome pack on arrival and spotlessly clean ... we arrived late on Friday. The facilities and furnishings were faultless. We were a family of 3 generations and the space and layout was perfect for us all. It was in a super location for walking and days out.

The cottage is in a very convenient location. There are beautiful walks accessible from the front door. The cottage itself is obviously very old but has been beautifully modernised and is very comfortable. It is also spotlessly clean.

A wonderfully presented cottage. Looks even better than on the photographs and larger too. Great location for exploring the peaks with some good walks from the cottage and also some handy walking books provided for other walks. There's also good local pub and an unusually excellent Spa both within a few minutes walk of the cottage.
