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.


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.
