Property Description

Scenic location

Chestnut Farm, a 17th century Derbyshire farm, longbarn and dairy have been sympathetically converted into five individual properties that combine modern comfort with the distinctive construction methods of the era. Set within 1¼ acres of courtyard and grounds, the farm looks out over the undisputed beauty of the Peak District National Park, and yet is less than 15 minutes to the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Retaining many original features including beams and exposed stone walls, each cottage offers individual holiday accommodation, welcoming couples or large family parties who may wish to book several cottages together. Situated in Uppertown, just above the village of Bonsall, high above the wooded ’Via Gellia’ gorge, it is ideal for walkers with the Limestone Way passing immediately alongside the farm. Matlock is 10 minutes away with supermarket, bus and rail, and a steam train up the Derwent Valley. The lively town of Matlock Bath, approximately 2½ miles by car or walk through woodland, has a mining museum, Abraham Cable Cars and Gullivers Kingdom. All the scenic delights of the Peak District are a short drive including Carsington Water, High Peak Trail, Dovedale and the Manifold Valley. The market towns of Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne are all within a half hour drive along with Chatsworth House, Haddon Halla and the Crich Tramway Village all a similar drive. Alton Towers and the Potteries are well worth the drive. Shop 100 yards, pub ½ mile.

  2. Lovely relaxing time spent at the cottage, cosy living room, good location as had some friends coming by train and train station is only about 10 minutes away (Matlock Bath). Great place for a relaxing gathering betwen friends! Sept 2012.
  3. Gorgeous property, snow on arrival -although I imagine this is not a guarantee!!! Nicely decorated, well equipped, a wonderful weekend! Dec 2011.
  4. Go to the Barley Mow excellent! Sept 2011.
  5. Very good facility, with all we needed. May 2011.
  6. Extremely comfortable and spacious. Wine and biscuits very welcome. Excellent appliances and sufficient cleaning materials for our stay. Home from home and value for money. March 2011.
  7. The cottage was excellent and exceeded our expectations by some distance as it was so reasonably priced. It was warm, cosy and well-equipped, perfect for our requirements. We found a good Indian restaurant too in Matlock - called Maazi - along with a delightful cafe in the park in Matlock. March 2011.
  8. Lovely cottage with bottle of wine and biscuits included. Fully functional kitchen with lots of utensils, comfy beds perfect location had a wonderful stay. Feb 2011.

  12. Very clean, well equipped, excellent location. Welcoming wine & biscuits a lovely touch. Oct 2010.
  13. Very pleasant accommodation, which exceeded our expectations. Not one, but two spiral staircases! The house was set in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. With plenty of open space for the children to let off steam. July 2010.
  14. The location for getting to all the attractions in the area is excellent. The property is spacious a nd very comfortable. Having the two spiral staircases makes it very separate ideal for your own privacy, but great for sharing with each side having its own bathroom you can be completely self contained when you want to be. It is very quiet and private and yet near to everything.It has a lovely feel to it so you feel at home from the start. Great outside area for sitting out. Ideal for all weathers and times of the year. June 2010.
  15. Practical base especially if you are in to walking. May 2010.
  16. Peacefull location and walks from the doorstep. April 2010.
  17. The property is well equipped, roomy, warm and comfortable. It has plenty of equipment, has been thoughfully converted and has been furnished to a high standard. The second bathroom is a real boon to the larger family. Mar 2010.
  18. Would have liked to rate it as excellent except neither the dishwasher nor the washing machine worked. The owner had stated the dishwasher had a problem stopping. The appliances were not suitable for the property ie dishwasher & washing m/c too low a quality, microwave too complicated and a toaster so small that a standard slice of bread would not fit in it. Oct 2009.
  19. Beautiful location with numerous walks straight from the cottage. High quality of accommodation and very helpful owners. April 2009.
  20. Lovely location. Warm and comfortable accommodation. Dec 2008.
