This Litton Mill apartment is one of the cleanest and most well appointed self catering accommodations we have stayed in. The area is lovely, plenty to see and do, and a couple of nice pubs reasonably near for a good meal. The Red Lion at Litton is especially good, in particular the sausages !!
However, although not wishing to be a killjoy, there are a couple of points that I feel other prospective residents should be made aware of. It states in the information about the apartment that it is on the ground floor - what it doesn't tell you is that you need to go up 11 steps to get to the apartment. Secondly, it also states that both en suite bathrooms have a shower enclosure - they are not shower enclosures but a shower over the bath. Minor points you may say, but I am 68 years of age, my wife 69. I have two replacement knee joints and a twisted pelvis, so lifting the luggage up the 11 steps and getting into the shower required a lot of extra effort - each day my wife had to help me climb over the bath so that I could have a shower.
As previously stated, this a great apartment, especially if you are fit and well. Sorry for the negativity.
Litton Mill is a peaceful very secluded place. In the middle of the Peak District but quiet relative to many places around the area. It was lovely to come back to in the evening. We enjoyed the constant running water around us and the general feel of the place. The apartment is spacious and comfortable with satisfactory facilities, but perhaps not the rural charm and decor of a cottage. We would go back to this place. Very convenient for walking, cycling and visiting the area. We cycled on the Monsall trail and had good walks direct from the apartment without the need to drive somewhere first. There was also the interest of industrial history, fabulous bird sightings (dippers, grey wagtails, siskins seen very frequently) and the beauty of the river. There is lots to do in the local area.
