A perfect cottage for family and friends, situated in an ideal spot to explore the beauty that surrounds The Peak District National Park. Offering cosy accommodation and plenty to do on your doorstep.

Book a stay at this unusual, three-storey, stone village home at Cromford, approximately 2.5 miles from Matlock, and less than 500m from the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park. Associated with the famous Cromford Mills complex, built by 18th-century industrialist Sir Richard Arkwright, this historic, three-bedroom home sleeps five guests and also welcomes two of their four-legged friends. An ideal base for a family or group of friends who enjoy walking, the lively village is also known for its shops and eateries.

Open the front door to the striking cottage and wander inside to find yourselves in an inviting lounge, with a beamed ceiling and stone fireplace. Light the wood burner, find your favourite programmes on the Smart TV and chat together as you plan the following day’s activities. Make your way through into the kitchen/diner, with its distinctly contemporary finish to prepare holiday treats whenever you fancy eating in. At the end of each busy day, head to the upper floors to lay your head in one of the beautiful bedrooms. On the first floor, there is a twin room, plus a small double and a shower room. The floor above, reached by climbing steep, cottage-style stairs, houses another double bedroom. Parking at this cottage is on the road, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Enjoy staying at the heart of Cromford, parts of which are designated a World Heritage Site for its role in the birth of the Industrial Revolution. Visit Arkright’s Mill; browse at Mason Mills, with its collection of shops; wander round the other independent stores and bookshops in the village. Stroll 1.5 miles along the river to High Peak Junction, where keen walkers can pick up the famous High Peak Trail. Plan a day out to spectacular Chatsworth House, 10 miles from the cottage.

A lovely period cottage with a modern touch. The kitchen is very well equipped. Located near to all the village amenities. We didn't use the car for three days as there are several circular walks starting from the village. The Boat Inn and Parkies cafe are very dog friendly. A visit to Crich Tramway museum is recommended, again totally dog friendlyRead more. A great property, would definitely stay there again. Hide

This was a very cosy cottage. Spotlessly clean! Very wast check-in and check out. Everything supplied was good quality! The upstairs bedroom is up a steep flight of stairs so fine for us but if youre less able it might be difficult. A lovely house in a beautiful location! We will be back

The cottage was really well equipped and furnished very tastefully. Great location for touring the area. Be aware that the Stairs are extremely steep and anyone who has difficulty with mobility will struggle.

Loved the history of the house, with top floor full of light for weaving and its relationship to the historic Mill down the road. Very nicely converted. Stairs steep and narrow, awkward for carrying cases, needed the thoughtfully installed handrails

This cottage was gorgeous. It's newly decorated and everything felt new & spotless, while still holding on to its historic uniqueness. It's well kitted out with almost anything you could wish for, including sharp knives & even a slow cooker! Note if you have small children: there isn't a bathtub or a washing machine and the steep stairs are perhapsRead more a bit tricky for little legs/climbers. The owners were so kind and helpful with all of our questions and needs and we had a wonderful stay. Hide
