Property code: OC-DCELM

This cosy hideaway for two is tucked in a sleepy hamlet 4.5 miles from Chesterfield, offering marvellous views, elegant interiors and a crackling wood burner for chilly evenings. Discover the rugged landscape from the comfort of your doorstep, enjoying local walks through the Linacre Valley and pausing for picnics against a rolling backdrop of hills. Chesterfield boasts plenty of shops, eateries and attractions including an iconic crooked spire church, but a short 4 mile drive will bring you to historic sites such as the Chatsworth Estate and Bolsover Castle. Bakewell is within easy reach, just 7 miles away, where you can meander through the pretty streets admiring the architecture and sampling some Bakewell Pudding.

Delightful from the outset and finished in a studio style, this romantic retreat is stylish and comforting. Quarry tiles underfoot, elegant furniture and a wood burner set the scene in the open-plan living space, inviting you to pull up a recliner and sink back with your favourite drink in hand. There is a TV and DVD player for entertainment, and the compact yet excellently-equipped kitchen area has everything you need to whip up delicious meals, plus a quirky breakfast bar with stools. Moving through to the bedroom, you’ll find a king-size bed and pretty furniture, but this can be configured as a twin on request. Completing the property is a bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Outside, the small garden has a gravel patio that’s encircled by wildflowers, providing a peaceful spot for your first coffee of the day.

The cottage was beautiful. We had days out to Matlock Bath, and Bakewell. We sat in the garden area listening to the birds. Just lovely and relaxing stay.

Exceptionally clean and well equipped. However the small, private garden was overgrown and lack a gate to prevent access to a small but fast road. Message from the Owner: Thank you for your feedback. The small garden area has now been enclosed for the benefit if guests, particularly those with pets.

Many thanks for making our visit so comfortable and enjoyable. It is a lovely cottage, well equipped and has everything we could wish for. The honey and flapjacks were a lovely and delicious surprise and very much appreciated. This week we have had some wonderful walks in the beautiful countryside. We will put the word out and hope to be back soon.Read more Hide

I really enjoyed my stay here with [goldendoodle]. Nice touch with the welcome flapjack on arrival, was really delicious and the honey. Thank you. Everything works really well, easy to use and even the knives were really sharp. Great spot for dog walking with the Linacre reservoirs. My only criticism would be that I wasn't told where I could recyclRead moree my rubbish so ended up putting it all in one bag. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. Hide
