Overview

About the property

The cottage is set in the beautiful quiet historic village of Bonsall on Masson Hill, although within 25 minutes you can walk to the Heights of Abraham cable car that leads to Matlock Bath which is a popular resort, some other nearby places of interest include Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Chatsworth, Carsington water and a little further afield Alton Towers.

The village of Bonsall benefits from two pubs which both offer a range of decent ales and food, the nearest of which is literally a stone’s throw from the front door, there is a café within 5 minutes walk overlooking the local children’s park and a small deli shop.

The cottage is a lovely family holiday home which has been refurbished, maintaining many traditional features which include exposed oak beams, original stone flags too the hall and recessed window seats. The cottage benefits from gas central heating, which is supplemented by a log burner.

The accommodation comprises:

On the ground floor; entrance hall, shower room and w/c. A large lounge leads off the hall which comfortably accommodates 8 people. The kitchen has a 6 seater dining table, range cooker and fitted kitchen.

Upstairs there is one king size bedroom, one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, there is a large bathroom with double ended bath.

A further two people can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the lounge taking the maximum occupancy to eight people ( you would need to fold the bed away each day to use the living room).

From all rooms there are views of the village or the surrounding countryside, the back stairs from the kitchen lead to the rear garden which has fantastic views and the field behind often has cows grazing (please don’t feed them!). There is a table and chairs to enjoy the view from. At the front of the property there is off road parking and a small front garden with seating, further parking is available on the street.

The cottage is child friendly and also two well behaved pets would be considered if kept downstairs (there is an additional cleaning fee for pets).

Whether hiking, hibernating or using Bonsall as a base to explore any of the other activities which are all available within 15 minute drive such as caving, rock climbing or sailing, I am sure you will enjoy staying here!

A great base for the Peak District

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be everything we needed for our stay in the Peak District. The location works well (just a few minutes from Matlock and thence just a short drive to most of the Peak District), the house was spacious enough for the 7 of us, and we had no issues apart from a little trouble parking at times (the space is tight if you have 2 cars and the neighbours are also in - one neighbour parked at an angle and this made it very squeaky-tight indeed!). Adam communicated well, the little patio out back was lovely, and the village was interesting. We would definitely consider it again in the same circumstances.

Owner's Response: Thank You for the kind review, I am glad that you found their to be enough space for 7 people and that you found everything to your liking. When there are 3 or 4 cars outside the front of the cottage it can be very tight parking! however there is always room on the road not to far away for a second or third car. Thanks again for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed staying. Adam

Interesting Place

  • 4 of 5

The house was quite quirky and individual- a bit more like staying with family! Good spacious bathroom with huge bath and plenty of hot water. The garden terrace at the top was a lovely place to sit. Bonsall was interesting and we enjoyed strolling around and looking at the gardens.

comfy cosy cottage, great base for walking

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is a lovely olde worlde place, it has everything we needed (2 adults), v comfortable beds, a very well equipped kitchen, warm and cosy with plenty of hot water. It has good wifi, which considering its location is a bonus, but the mobile signal is not good anywhere in the village really, which is to be expected. We were easily able to reach the places we wanted to walk from, Eyam and Chatsworth are also only a short drive away. Robinsons chip shop in Cromford is good and if you like books, Scarthins in Cromford is like an Aladdin's Cave, (but the cottage itself has a large, superb selection of books, as well as local guides). Bonsall is a great village to stay in, food at the King's Head is excellent, good pies, v friendly owners. The Barley Mow is also v friendly and keeps a good pint, we just didn't happen to eat there.Our host Adam was always available if needed, very prompt in all his responses to us, both before and during our stay. We would recommend the cottage as a good place to stay and good value.

Lovely Bonsall

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just as described in a lovely village. An extremely well stocked cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay.Kings Head pub just down the road from the cottage is excellent with great landlord, landlady and staff. Food was excellent, we ate 4 times there in the week. The pies are not to be missed

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This holiday cottage is perfect for exploring Matlock Bath & the surrounding areas. The cottage is in a quiet location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. If you enjoy walking there are plenty off trails for you to try.

The cottage itself was perfectly kept, clean, tidy & warm. It had everything we needed so was literally home from home.....we enjoyed a very relaxing weekend.

We would certainly love to visit again in the near future.
