Excellent accommodation in a great location
We were very satisfied with the property and all 9 of us had a most enjoyable family get together. The accommodation was clean and furnished to a good standard and we were impressed with the well equipped kitchen. We had good weather throughout our stay and were able to enjoy time outside in the patio garden. We appreciated the homemade chocolate cupcakes brought to us on the Saturday evening by the owner Terence’s wife....thank you!! It was good to have Cromford station nearby as some of our party arrived and departed by train. During our stay we visited Matlock Bath, Matlock, had a very nice meal in the local pub, and enjoyed the many rhododendrons in full bloom at nearby Lea Gardens. We would certainly consider a return visit to the property in the future.
Hi Kathleen. We are very pleased you found out our properties suitable for your holiday. Much appreciated for your Review.
Lovely property tricky spiral staircase
The property was ideal
Perfect for a family gathering
The property was perfect for a large family gathering. Plenty of sleeping areas, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The Old Mill sits in a picturesque village close to a number of local attractions
We are very pleased that you all have an enjoyable stay at The Old Mill and Cottage. Thank you Paul and family for your REVIEW. Very much appreciated!!
Characterful, welcoming, lovely views and very good value for money.
We were welcomed with a large tin of chocolates instead of their usual home-baked cake, as my wife has a gluten allergy. (I don't think our grand-daughters had any objection to this arrangement!) And the shop/cafe/post office a few yards up the road even had some gluten-free items available; though as weekend visitors we weren't there long enough to try them.
The main house was full of character. It has a spacious lounge and feature fireplace. A spiral staircase (not recommended for disabled access!) goes down from the hall to the dining room, kitchen and lower bedrooms. There is a ground-floor bathroom and twin bedroom and a very nice double bedroom in the tower (but mind your head going down if over 6ft.). The owners live in an adjoining section of the building and the main courtyard has parking for 3 visitor's cars. A self-contained cottage next door has a double bedroom and double bed-settee. There was a good supply of utensils and accessories and loads of toys, books and games for both kids and adults. We did find a few faulty items, such as a stuck tap, that appeared not to have been reported by previous occupants. The owners thanked us, ordered a plumber, and gave us a £10 discount.
The location is very convenient for back-road access to Matlock Bath and many other attractions, without having to fight your way through the traffic in Matlock town centre.
We have already recommended it to other friends and family.
Dear Mr and Mrs King,
Thank you so much for your REVIEW! We are very pleased that you all have an enjoyable stay.

Well appointed house in a great location
The house was well appointed and spacious, with a very large lounge that groups of up to 15 can comfortably sit around. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The location is lovely - a mile away from a nice pub, a mile away from a river, and not all that far from small towns and the Derbyshire Peaks.
The only small thing to be aware of is a very steep set of stairs down to the kitchen and dining area. This is fine for most but I'd be cautious before letting someone who is a bit more frail to walk up and down. That said, as long as they are sleeping upstairs you could manage without them using the steeper stairs.
Much appreciated your REVIEW! We are pleased that you all have an enjoyable stay at The Old Mill and Cottage.

Generous, Convenient and Well Equipped
We hired the Old Mill and Cottage for a family holiday to celebrate an Anniversary. Our party totalled 6 adults and two children.
We were all very pleased with our choice of bedrooms and facilities and really impressed with the way in which the property was equipped and supplied. Although we needed to bring Bath and Hand towels this wasn't really a problem.
The spiral stairs down to the Dining Room and Kitchen take a little practice but we were soon quite proficient.
The comfortable and roomy lounge was perfect for getting together. Our granddaughter (age 7) was delighted to find a brilliant dolls house and toys, whilst the adults had a range of books and games as well as a full Sky TV service.
Lots of fridge and freezer space together with the oven, microwave and dishwasher made it easy to do our bit of self catering whilst a huge array of crockery, cutlery and glasses meant we rarely ran short of implements
The owners are just lovely. Very obliging and willing to help. We were fortunate to enjoy a Cheesecake ready in the fridge when we arrived and some home-baked chocolate muffins later in the week.
In the village, the local store.post office was handy and the Jug & Glass Inn do a really excellent meal.
Thank you very much for your REVIEW, Mr. Piper. My wife and I are very pleased that you all have an enjoyable stay. It is good to know that The Old Mill and Cottage are very much appreciated!
