About the property

E13395

Thistledown Cottage has been lovingly created out of a mellow stone barn which looks out across Wensley Dale in the sleepy little hamlet of Snitterton. Its attractive decoration, comfortable furniture, modern facilities and glowing log burning stove make it a superb cottage to return to at the end of the day.

The Hay Loft has been carefully created out of a mellow stone hay loft in the midst of the sleepy little hamlet of Snitterton. Its dramatic vaulted ceilings, attractive decoration, comfortable furniture and fittings, quality bed linen and towels together with its wonderful setting in a secret little valley make it a really great holiday retreat.

I cant recomend this place highly enough

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few nights here with the family. I have two children aged 6 & 7 and they absolutely loved it. Great location and really cosy living quarters. Kerry (the owner) was great and was happy to talk about the farm and even let the children bottle feed baby lamb. Great country escape away from city life and loads to do in the area. I'm sure we will be back one day.

Cosy, well-located, attractive cottage

  • 4 of 5

Really well-located cottage, 2 minutes from Matlock, and a great Sainsbury's, yet in the middle of the countryside. The children loved watching the new born lambs, Kerry and Wendy were very friendly and helpful, and we loved seeing their horses, dogs, cat and sheep. The cottage is very cosy, clean, attractively furnished, well-equipped and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here.

There is room for three in the downstairs bedroom, but they would need to get on well together, as it is not a large room. It was fine for my two though (12 year old girl, 13 year old boy).

We enjoyed visiting the Heights of Abraham (5 minutes), fascinating working museum's at Arkwright's mill (10 minutes), Caudwell's mill (Rowsley) and beautiful walks locally and in nearby Lathskilldale and Dove Dale.

Lovely Cottage, very well situated just outside Matlock Spa, perfect for the Peaks and our visit to Derby Uni. Would stay again.

Special interest holidays:

Snitterton is in a quiet little valley just over the hill from Matlock so you will think you are in the middle of nowhere yet all Derbyshire's attractions are close to hand. If you like walking, wander up Wensley Dale until you find the lovely village of Winster, conquer Stanton Moor to see the 'Nine Ladies Needles', or take an evening stroll by the river to the Square and Compass or Three Stags pubs in Darley Bridge. The cottage is situated in the grounds of a small holding containing various animals including sheep and horses

But always remember that tomorrow you can visit nearby Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Peak Rail's steam trains and the magnificent Matlock Bath gorge. Alternatively take the children to Gulliver's Kingdom, treat the older-ones to Carsington Water adventures and perhaps all of you can revel in nostalgia on Crich's wonderful tramway. In complete contrast drop to 'Oblivion' at Alton Towers.

Distances:

Nearest pub - Darley Bridge 1 mile.

Nearest village shop - Matlock 1 mile.

Nearest supermarket - Matlock 0.75 miles.

Further Details:

Hidden away in beautiful Wensley Dale, locations don't come much better than this. There are superb views across the valley on all the lovely walks from the cottage. A brisk evening stroll along the road by the river will soon get you to the Three Stags and Square and Compass pubs in Darley Bridge. Matlock, with all its county town facilities is just five minutes drive over the hill.

Don't forget to visit nearby Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the Peak Steam Railway. Other treats include Calver Edge's breathtaking views, Monsal Dale's wonderful waterfalls, the 'little Switzerland' of Matlock Gorge, Sunday breakfast in the Devonshire Arms in Beeley and the ultimate of meals in Stone's restaurant in Matlock. Make sure you get back in time for a drink on the little patio as the swifts and house martins swoop overhead.
