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.

  1. Fantastic cottage - really spacious and had everything we needed and more! Our children loved the big garden and the games that were left in the property. A big thanks to the owner who also gave us some tips on good places to visit nearby (and left us a much appreciated bottle of wine and biscuits!) - we had a great time! Aug 2011.
  2. Beautifully presented, cosy cottage. Welcome gift of wine and biscuits was a lovely touch. We highly recommend this lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Aug 2011.
  3. Lovely location high up above Matlock area. Lots of room for kids to play outside, great views from the windows. Free WiFi appreciated, great to see it - everywhere should have it!
