About the neighbourhood
Set in a lovely valley, the cottage is ideal for visiting the many local attractions that Derbyshire has to offer. Chatsworth House, Crich Tramway Village and Carsington Water with fishing, sailing, bird watching and lots of outdoor activities. There is a choice of cycling trails with hire cycles in the locality. 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. Walkers will find a criss-cross of public footpaths to suit all levels in the immediate local area; the Midshires way passes directly past the
