Standcliffe Mews Holiday Cottage Description.
A lovely all ground floor, detached cottage, located next door to Crich Tramway Village on the outskirts of the pretty village of Crich in Derbyshire.
Very well maintained and comfortable throughout, the bungalow is perfect for small families or couples looking to explore this varied part of the Peak District. The Bungalow offers a delightful morning room overlooking the garden, where you can enjoy a morning cup of tea in quiet surroundings. The bungalow has a cosy sitting room with electric log effect fire, which is an ideal place to relax after a day of activities, plus this holiday home has a fitted kitchen with dining area, and there are two bedrooms, both with en-suite facilities.
Outside, there is a pretty, lawned garden with patio. This bungalow is ideally located to wander around the village of Crich, with its Market Square and three traditional pubs. Standcliffe Mews is an excellent base for walking and exploring the Peak District and close by you will find the Arkwright Mills, the Market Towns of Bakewell and Matlock, the imposing Chatsworth House and wonderful Haddon Hall. This Crich bungalow is a wonderful base, from which to enjoy the whole of the Peak District.
Glyn & Sheila Hartshorne built Standcliffe Mews in the grounds of Standcliffe House about 30 years ago and converted it into a Holiday Cottage five years later.
When Peak Practice the TV Medical Drama started filming in Crich it was used as accommodation for the stars and crew while they filmed mainly during the winter months.
The Cottage has been run as a Holiday Let ever since.
Over the years we have met many people and get regular repeat bookings from them.
Crich is a delightful self contained village with various shops and services and a very good hourly bus service can take you further afield if you don't want to drive to far.
Glyn & Sheila Hartshorne purchased this bungalow in 1976

The "Cliff Inn" is a superb pub which is just as good as it was forty years ago and only 100 yards from Standcliffe Mews. Serving good food with a varied menu. The pies from a local butcher are highly recommended.
Another favourite with our guests is "The White Hart" at Moorwood Moor, the pub has recently been rebuilt and offers superb food and surroundings. It is only about one and a half miles away from the bungalow and a map to get to it is available on request.

My family and I (myself, husband, 19 year old, 11 year old and dog!) have just spent a lovely week in Standcliffe Mews in Crich, Derbyshire. When booking somewhere the main requirement was that they took dogs and we happened upon Standcliffe Mews. The cottage is a converted barn standing in the grounds of a larger house. The accommodation was very clean. The kitchen has a good gas cooker and what looked like quite new dishwasher and washing machine. There is a highly efficient boiler giving hot water on tap. There is a double and twin room. The beds were comfortable and the bedding lovely and fresh. There is a sitting room with electric fire and TV/DVD. There is a useful large tiled hall as you come into the property and we could sit in here to get away from the kids! The garden is secure from a dog point of view. The owners are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The setting is idyllic. Lots of walks within a few minutes of the front door, the National Tramway Museum next door, plus loads to see in the area plus, of course the absolutely beautiful countryside. Crich is a small village but has a good butchers, small Nisa supermarket and a bakery plus an Indian and various pubs although we didn't eat out at all. I would definitely recommend the accommodation and the area.
The property provided wifi/internet access.

• The property was "as advertised".
• I recommend the location.
• The property was a good value for the price paid.
Lovely cottage, well appointed and well worth a visit.
This was our second holiday in Standcliffe Mews this year. Both were for two weeks and, as the weather was kind to us, equally enjoyable. The area is delightful and, by making use of our Bus Passes in conjunction with the bus network, many of the attractions are fairly easy to get to without the need for driving everywhere.
Whilst being small and compact, the property suits our purposes and, given an opportunity, we shall return.

Wow! What a beautiful place, very clean, very comfortable, the beds were especially so, just could not fault it. Owners made us feel very welcome, were there if you needed them, but not intrusive in any way. Loved the fact that the tramway museum is at the back, sat outside listening to the" ting ting " of the trams, ( this is not intrusive in any way, and can not be heard inside the property). The bedrooms are smaller than we expected, but this did not spoil the wonderful time we spent there. I would recommend this property for couples or a small family with young children.There was three of us, and it was perfect.
The shop in the village centre we found to be fantastic, we could buy all we needed without having to travel miles to the nearest supermarket.
We are hoping to stay again in the near future.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area.
This is an excellent base for exploring the peak District the bungalow is well maintained and very clean a delight to stay in the owners are lovely we had a wonderful week
Had a great time in Crich,the cottage was well kitted out & good for our dog enclosed garden.
Glyn was helpful in his places to go & do,shame the weather was lousy,Great Fish Chip Shop in Crich and indian take away.
Thank you Glyn and Sheila, your cottage had everything we needed. Cosy warm and well equipped with plenty of space and a good enclosed garden for our dog. There are lots of local walks we particularly liked walking up to Crich Stand and down to the Derwent at Whatstandwell. We enjoyed some good meals at the Cliff Inn nearby, The Royal Oak at Tansley and the Jug and Glass at Lea plus the Family Tree at Whatstandwell.
We both originate from this area and had a lovely time revisiting, so much so we have booked another week in August.
