About Roy and Anne Stratton
We bought and refurbished the cottage in 2015 as a retreat for family and friends but we are keen for it to be more widely used so we are making it available to others at a very reasonable rent.

Lovely cottage, nice and spacious! They had thought of everything. Anything you might need from a picnic basket to spare tooth brushes they had everything. Lovely clean and comfortable cottage! We had a fab weekend with family!
This is a lovely old cottage, well maintained and exactly as seen on the internet with all the comforts of home. We found this to be an ideal location for our travel plans as there is lots to do in the area. Host was pleasant and helpful. Will recommend this property.
beautiful cottage in wonderful location
Just enjoyed 5 nights in Roy and Anne's gorgeous cosy and traditional cottage. Well located for the small town of Belper (which is only a 5 minute walk away over a bridge and fantastic weir on the River Derwent) with traditional independent shops as well as some chain stores so a good mix with everything you need. If you want a full-on retail experience then Derby City is only 7 miles away and has a huge shopping complex (INTU Derby) as well as several very busy streets.
Belper has several good eateries and a great Bangladeshi restaurant which also does home delivery if you don't want to venture out.
Belper is ideally located for exploring Derbyshire and is a very quaint and picturesque small town, with very friendly and welcoming people.
The cottage was well equipped and we didn't need anything. There was fresh milk in the fridge when we arrived, along with tea, coffee, sugar and washing and cleaning products. All we had to do was buy any food to make meals, although we never bothered because we ate out in Belper every evening, thanks to the great variety of places to choose from.
All in all a wonderful break and we won't hesitate to go back again.
Perfect cottage in a central location.
Roy and Anne’s cottage was the perfect location. We spent nearly a week there and used it as our base point to go to Chattsworth House, York, Nottingham, and Sherwood Forest. We were all pleased with the accommodations and the close proximity to all you need in Belper. We walked down the road to the main part of Belper everyday and really loved being close enough to do so. We actually decided to spend one whole day exploring the town we loved it so much! Excellent work! Thanks again.
Lovely welcoming cottage.
We arrived in snow and sub-zero temperatures to a lovely warm welcoming cottage. A real home-from-home, with everything very comfortable and thoughtful, including a box of toys just right for a small grand-daughter. Milk in the fridge, a bottle of something stronger for the adults, comfortable beds, ample room for small children to play without always being under adult feet! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, and Roy was a wonderfully helpful host.
The countryside around is beautiful, and this time we even managed a couple of snowy walks. Later in the year there are plenty of interesting villages and stately homes to visit. All in all a most successful stay, and one we shall hope to repeat.
Thank you to Roy and Anne.
Modern, well equipped, well positioned for our reasons for visiting Belper
We booked the property in order to visit the NEC (8th Feb.), and more specifically because of its relative proximity to Darley Mill where my daughter got married on Feb 10th
For the price, we expected decent quality and we got it. We departed on the morning of Feb 12th entirely satisfied
