We absolutely loved our week at the old well cottage. Baslow as a base is perfect with facilities/services ( shops, pubs/restaurants/chatsworth house) in addition to the most wonderful walks all within a stones throw of the cottage. The cottage is well equipped, stylish and comfortable making you feel very much at home as soon as you arrive. The reRead morear garden is also worthy of praise, a private haven, perfect for alfresco meals and chilling. Hope to return. Hide
