Golconda is a charming old farm house that has been totally refurbished to an incredible standard. Behind its mellow stone walls, it has been interior designed retaining stone flagged floors and oak doors but then adding lots of modern features. The lovely furniture and drapes and the incredible use of colours and textures creates warm, calming and luxurious accommodation. The lounge has an amazing log burning stove. The dining kitchen is superbly fitted. The two en-suite bedrooms with king-size beds are to die for. You will find all the fluffy towels in the superb shower rooms.
One of our favourite pastimes is to sit at the top of the field behind the house with a good book and just drink in the wonderful view. But nearby Brassington is worth exploring. It’s a lovely village with a jumble of cottages across the hillside, two great pubs and lovely walks through beautiful countryside. Carsington Water has wild water sports, cycle trails and birdwatching all just a ten-minute drive away. Close by historic Wirksworth is a super little town where you can explore its heritage trail and railway, range of local shops, pubs, restaurants and even a small cinema.
Set in the glorious Derbyshire Dales on the edge of the Peak District National Park, you must visit Matlock Bath with its cable cars and riverside prom and nearby Cromford Mill in the Derwent Valley World Heritage Corridor. Magnificent Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are just up the Derwent Valley. Venture over towards Chesterfield and you will find amazing Hardwick Hall, Bolsover’s brilliant castle, Grassmoor’s Country Park and even Robin Hood’s Sherwood Forest.
A stylish lounge with comfortable furniture, Smart T.V., WiFi and eco log burning stove. A lovely dining kitchen with oak table and chairs. A well fitted kitchen with bespoke units, hard wood surfaces, Belfast sink, hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and slimline dishwasher. Two superb double bedrooms with king-size beds. Classy en-suite shower rooms with walk in showers and W.C.s. A downstairs cloakroom with W.C.

Beautiful converted farmhouse and buildings. We stayed in one of the two bed conversions. The decor and furnishings are all to a very high standard. The caretakers, Dawn and Ian, live on-site and are very friendly and helpful. There is a Camping & Caravan Club site at the front of the buildings which was not being used whilst we were there. The views from the top of the hill behind are beautiful. It's an easy walk to Carssington Water with a very good cafe. The High Peak Trail is easily accessed on foot from the property.
Here for Christmas, Amazing beautiful place!!! Superb place to stay especially for Christmas
Home from home-well equipped and of a high standard. Love everything about the cottage. Fabulous walks, helped by good weather. Definitely coming back again. Thank you
Fabulous stay, very well equipped, very nice welcome pack. Sunday lunch Ye Old Gate, Brassington excellent. Railway Inn, Shottle worth a visit really good food. Thank you.
We were delighted with the cottage , it’s decor and quality. The beds and bedding were heavenly but with so many nearby walks there was too much to do so staying in the gorgeous king sized beds was not an option. The surprise cake a bottle of wine was a wonderful welcoming touch and the on site team were friendly and helpful. It all exceeded our expectations and we will be back.
Brassington is a very picturesque village with a muddle of cottages tumbling down the hillside nestled in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales. Close to the lovely Georgian market town of Ashbourne, as well as the historic lead mining town of Wirksworth, there are few better places to base your holiday. Best of all, the village has two great pubs. Ye Olde Gate Inn is a 17th century unspoilt village inn that has been named Britain’s cosiest pub. Alternatively, get a very warm welcome in the Miners Arms that does great food and fantastic beer.
If you enjoy the countryside, you might know that the Limestone Way that passes the village will take you out across the Peaks, while the nearby Tissington Trail is just great for walking or cycling. Set virtually on the shores of Carsington Water, Derbyshire’s inland sea, there is also easy access to wild water sports, birdwatching, cycle hire, an adventure playground, visitor centre, café and craft shops.
There is lots to explore in this southern part of the Peak District. Beautiful Dove Dale has its famous stepping stones across the river or there is Manifold Dale with its ‘vanishing’ waters. Tissington with its fine Jacobean Manor, Hartington with its great cheese shop or Crowdecote with its incredible views, are great local villages. You might even get as far as Alton Towers, just over in Staffordshire!
Local pubs – Ye Olde Gate Inn, the Miners Arms and the Knockerdown near Carsinton.
