Past Customer,

Fantastic house. Fabulous village. Brilliant weather!

Past Customer,

Fabulous property! One of the best equipped we have stayed in. Lovely village and great walks.

Past Customer,

Gorgeous cottage complete with all we could possibly need. Beautiful walks, butcher and a bakery - heaven!

The T,

A super cottage in a wonderful location. We arrived for a christmas break and the decorations were beautiful and very festive, the facilities were really home from home for us. Local walks with the dog, the choir service in the square and the lovely artisan shops in the village all added to the stay. Towards the end of our stay we unfortunately had a car accident which left us without a car and means to get home, Jerry the host was extremely understanding and did everything to enable us to extend our stay until we managed to sort everything out. A host with most, thank you Jerry.

Mrs Christine M,

Had an amazing time, cottage was perfect and we will def. come again.

Blaster and R,

Wonderful cottage & beautiful surroundings. Loved our stay and can’t wait to come back.

Clarissa & T,

Our stay was fantastic, the property is beautiful and very comfortable. We really appreciated all the effort by the owners i.e. the guides and the walks. We had some great days out (Heights of Abraham, Cromford Mill were particularly good) and enjoyed the local pub, bakery & Indian restaurant. We will definitely visit Derbyshire again!

Miss R,

Beautiful property with plenty of space, much bigger than I expected. The rooms were really nicely decorated and the standard of cleaning was excellent. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were spacious enough for 6 people, there was even a room with a view of the garden for morning coffee if you felt like escaping. On arrival we had the distinct feeling that the Homeowners had thought about our stay and they provided everything we might need. We felt at home right off the bat. The location was quiet and there were lots of places to visit within easy reach. Locally, the Black Swan pub was very good and the Jeera Indian restaurant was outstanding. We would highly recommend staying at this property.

Mrs C,

The fixtures, fittings and cleaning was all first class. The house was easily hotel comfort. Good little village with a pub, butchers and bakers. Just what you need for a 4 day holiday.

Mrs B,

A very comfortable cottage with plenty of space, pretty garden and great location. It was a real home from home and the owners have gone to great lengths to make it special. The boot room and side access was great for the dogs too. Would happily stay here again and have already recommended it to a friend. Overall, excellent.

Mrs S,

We loved it! Felt like our second home for the week. Thank you for an excellent stay.

Previous Customer,

Fantastic cottage in prime location. Probably the best we have stayed in - so well equipped and what a comfy bed. We will be back!

Previous Customer,

Faultless cottage - everything you need and more. Thank you very much.

Previous Customer,



Did you ever think Cardale village in the ‘Peak Practice’ T.V. series looked a lovely place? Well, that is Crich in real life set in the lovely rolling countryside just to the south of Matlock. Gathered around the market place it is a great village that really lives with its local stores, brilliant bakery, two super pubs and a well-known Indian restaurant.

Its other claim to fame is that it is home to the National Tramway Museum (Crich Tramway Village). This is a fantastic day out where the recreated period village has its cobbled street, working pub, café and tram depots. Re – live the olden days riding one of the 60 beautifully restored trams before wandering around the really interesting museum. You might also like to walk up to Crich Stand which is a memorial to the ‘fallen’ in the local army regiments. It is very moving to go up there and it also gives you incredible views over five counties and all the local attractions.

The Derwent Valley World Heritage Corridor, Matlock Bath with its cable cars, Carsington Water with its wild water sports, the National Stone Centre featuring everything to do with stone and Matlock with its Peak Rail steam train rides can all be found in the local hills. Don’t forget to visit Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and all the other stately homes.

Local pubs: The Cliff Inn and the Old Black Swan pub in Crich. The Bluebell Inn South Wingfield.
