The cottage is set in the beautiful quiet historic village of Bonsall on Masson Hill, although within 25 minutes you can walk to the Heights of Abraham cable car that leads to Matlock Bath which is a popular resort, some other nearby places of interest include Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Chatsworth, Carsington water and a little further afield Alton Towers.

The village of Bonsall benefits from two pubs which both offer a range of decent ales and food, the nearest of which is literally a stone’s throw from the front door, there is a café within 5 minutes walk overlooking the local children’s park and a small deli shop.

The cottage is a lovely family holiday home which has been refurbished, maintaining many traditional features which include exposed oak beams, original stone flags too the hall and recessed window seats. The cottage benefits from gas central heating, which is supplemented by a log burner.

The accommodation comprises:

On the ground floor; entrance hall, shower room and w/c. A large lounge leads off the hall which comfortably accommodates 8 people. The kitchen has a 6 seater dining table, range cooker and fitted kitchen.

Upstairs there is one king size bedroom, one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, there is a large bathroom with double ended bath.

A further two people can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the lounge taking the maximum occupancy to eight people ( you would need to fold the bed away each day to use the living room).

From all rooms there are views of the village or the surrounding countryside, the back stairs from the kitchen lead to the rear garden which has fantastic views and the field behind often has cows grazing (please don’t feed them!). There is a table and chairs to enjoy the view from. At the front of the property there is off road parking and a small front garden with seating, further parking is available on the street.

The cottage is child friendly and also two well behaved pets would be considered if kept downstairs (there is an additional cleaning fee for pets).

Whether hiking, hibernating or using Bonsall as a base to explore any of the other activities which are all available within 15 minute drive such as caving, rock climbing or sailing, I am sure you will enjoy staying here!

Great place to stay …
We spent a 4 night family holiday in this lovely cottage - us, our son and his partner and grandchildren ages from 8 to 15. The cottage is well equipped, spacious, warm and cozy. The village of Bonsall is beautiful, and the Kings Head just a few minutes walk away is very welcoming. Plus there was plenty for us all to do both locally and in Matlock Bath. We all enjoyed a great few days. Thank you Adam

Wonderful Cottage
We had a lovely stay at the cottage! It had a lot of space for all of us (4 adults, a child and a baby) and was exactly what we needed. Many thanks Adam!

5/5 Excellent

Illuminations weekend
We just returned from a 3 x night weekend away at this cottage. 5 of us in total with 3 x young kids, were in the area for the Matlock Bath Illuminations. The cottage had plenty of room for us & was well equipped for everything we needed. Arriving on the Friday night, we ate out in the Barley Mow a short walk from the cottage. On the Saturday we were out for most of the day in Matlock & Matlock Bath, the kids were very happy in the amusements & eating candy floss. We made good use of the log burner & spent a good few hours sitting in the comfy chairs reading. We enjoyed our stay & would recommend the cottage to anyone. Thanks Adam!
