About Lesley Stevenson

Keith and Lesley Stevenson are the proud owners of Tawny Cottage. We live locally which means we can be on hand should we be required. We have enjoyed renovating the Cottage to a very high standard. We think the quiet location of the Cottage will please holidaymakers and having Shipley Country Park just outside the front door offering 700 acres of varied landscape and 20 miles of footpaths we hope will delight our visitors.

Lesley Stevenson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lesley Stevenson chose Erewash District

Tawny Cottage is over 100 years old and is one of only 12 houses in Shipley Village. We fell in love with the village many years ago whilst walking in the Park. We were lucky enough to purchase the Cottage in November 2013 and have enjoyed carrying out the renovation.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage had stood empty for over 5 years when we purchased it. One room was querky, it could only be entered by walking out of the back door, crossing the yard and entering through a second back door. The room had been a workshop for over 70 years. The room is now part of the Kitchen.

Shipley is close to the World Heritage sites at Belper, and the Derwent Valley. Carsington Water is a short drive away, for sailing and water sports . Chatsworth, the medieval Haddon Hall, and Eyam, the plague village, can all be visited whilst staying at Tawny Cottage. Buxton renowned for its Opera House and Pavilion Gardens is a short drive away. You are also at the gateway to the dales, and the Peak District National Park, the perfect place to enjoy long walks, leisurely bike rides or horse riding in the quiet Derbyshire countryside

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all loved this house. It was very beautifully renovated and has everything here we needed - from the eldest to youngest. We were having a family birthday weekend 70 years to 2 years. It is also in a lovely position, great walks and easy access to lovely places.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend staying here. The house is lovely. All very clean and well looked after. Rooms are very good sizes, and plenty of space for people to be in different places if they want to be, whilst the dining room is big enough for everyone to eat together. Very well equipped with everything we needed. Very friendly hosts, who met us on arrival and showed us round, and provided a cake and milk for us as well. Would highly recommend, and we would definitely stay again if in the area.

Relaxing and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well appointed, comfortable cottage suitable all year round for short or long stays. Rachel and Keith are lovely people and made us feel really welcome. Quiet country location but central to lots of Derbyshire attractions. Highly recommended.

Beautiful cottage. A real home from home with everything you could possibly need.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at this cottage. The cottage has been beautifully and sympathetically restored by the owners and has a lovely feel to the place. There were 9 of us staying and we had plenty of space to spread out. The cottage is very close to Shipley Country Park for lots of walking and biking and big play area/zip wire for the kids. The owners were lovely and helped us with tips on local things to do and places to eat which was really helpful. Couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough and we're hoping to come back soon!

Beautiful cottage. Had everything we needed and more. Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome to this amazing cottage. Little extras like cupcakes, milk in the fridge and tea and coffee was so nice after a long journey. Many other extras throughout the house was greatly appreciated.

The property has been beautifully refurbished and was extremely comfortable. We really didn't want to go home.

Great sized property. Quite deceiving really. Much bigger than expected. We had 8 adults staying and plenty of room. 2 beautiful living rooms and huge dining area. Perfect!!

Thank you. We will definitely return!

Tawny Cottage is one of twelve homes which form the small village of Shipley . We are proud of our pretty recently reinstalled Village Green. Weleda have their gardens within the village which produce herbal plants for their world famous health products. Michael House School is situated within the village and is a Steiner Waldorf School. The village hall is well equiped, and is available for meetings, keep fit and also to hire for parties etc.
