A spacious property in lovely surroundings…Just what was needed after spending the day at amusement parks ?<br/>Each of the rooms were immaculately decorated and made our stay for a family of five, quite special.<br/>Host & Stay were very helpful as we needed assistance to locate the property on arrival.



An absolute gem tucked up a short lane, with gorgeous views from both the spacious patio, cozy living room & spacious double bedroom. Super kitchen , two beautiful shower rooms, comfy beds & towels. Annie was a wonderful friendly host. There’s a restaurant/pub just a few steps away. Within easy distance of lots to do, including Haddon Hall, Kedleston Hall, Chatsworth & Derbion for shopping as well as the wonderful towns of Ashbourne & Wirksworth to explore. It was hard to leave!
