Great Cottage that was spotlessly clean, made very welcome by Helen and Tony while we were there. Nice touch was the cream tea when we arrived. A good base for sightseeing in the area.

Thanks Robert for the great review, glad you enjoyed the cream tea. All the best Helen and Tony

The market towns of Belper, Ashbourne, Wirksworth, Bakewell and Buxton are all within easy reach. Belper is the nearest 2 km away and set in the Derwent Valley which has World Heritage status. Alton Towers is roughly 45 minutes by car, The Heights of Abraham are within 20 minutes drive.
