A delightful cottage located by the river in the sought after village of Baslow, adjacent to the entrance to Chatsworth Park.
This refurbished 18th century cottage has original features over 3 floors. It is ideally positioned in this popular village close to excellent local amenities which include 2 village shops and a choice of restaurants, cafes and gastropubs. There is even a Michelin starred restaurant at Baslow Hall.
A short stroll over the river is the entrance to Chatsworth Park and all its attractions. Bakewell and Haddon Hall are within less than 7 miles. The market town of Chesterfield, with its crooked spire and Hardwick Hall are about 20-30 minutes drive, as are Edale and the Hope valley.
This is a prime walking area with so many walks from the front door. Go up onto the edges ( stunning views over the Hope valley) or walk along the river Derwent as far as Derby- if you have the energy.
The cottage was renovated over winter 2018 and the living accommodation enhanced, in line with recommendations from guest reviews to the previous owners. A downstairs toilet and dishwasher were also added. The property has steep and narrow stairs so is unsuitable for disabled visitors. It has since been redecorated as needed to maintain an extremely high standard of accommodation.
You enter the cottage into a generous living/dining room, with access to a kitchen and utility room at the rear, off which is a downstairs wc. The living room has a wood burning stove in the original fireplace. From the kitchen, the back door leads to a paved courtyard with table, chairs and a BBQ. The kitchen is equipped with oven, hob, fridge with icebox, dishwasher, microwave and washer.
On the first floor is a cosy sitting room with TV and amazon fire stick, DVD player and spacious bathroom with a separate shower, bath, wc and hand basin.
Stairs lead up to the 2 bedrooms. The rear bedroom has a king size zip and link bed which can be split into 2 singles. The front room has a double bed and fitted cupboards, with views from the velux window towards the park.
There is wireless internet throughout the property.
A first come first served parking space is available over the bridge for residents or there is ample parking in the village car park 100m away. High chair and cot are available. Bedding and towels are provided.
A maximum of 2 dogs are welcome at a charge of £20 per dog but should not go on soft furnishings or in the bedrooms.
