Across the hall, there is a shower room with WC, next door to which there is a bathroom with roll top bath and his and hers wash basins.

Outside you will find a selection of outbuildings, one of which is the games room which comprises of a pool table, table football and a dart board, creating the perfect chill out space. The second of the blocks is a drying room containing a washing machine and dryer, so you can leave wet coats and boots in a separate area, whilst there is also a shower block with two shower cubicles and a WC. There is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the sunshine, including a patio with a table and chairs for the whole group to have an evening drink, a hot tub to soak in and enjoy the peace and quiet, and an area laid to lawn to any garden games you might want to play.

Great cottage with everything you need provided. Good size rooms with plenty of storage and comfrey beds. Enjoyed the hot tub after some long walks and outside showers are a great idea. Secure for the dogs. I would love to give it 5 stars for location as some great walks from the cottage, Cromford and Matlock along the canal is a must but the 50MPHRead more road right outside with heaving trucks and cars speeding by does spoil it.
