Property Description

Lamp Cottage is an immaculate stone detached holiday property set in parkland where sheep and deer roam and is located in the grounds of the historic Leahurst Estate, the former summer residence of Florence Nightingale and her family. It is approached down a private driveway through a meadow and a gate leading to a gravelled parking area. A large oak porch leads into this delightful accommodation where furnishings and fittings are of the a highest quality and spectacular unspoiled south west facing views across the Amber Valley make this the most unique of properties. The property is entered into via a large entrance hall, off which are the main reception rooms. To the rear of the hall, through double glazed doors, is the fully equipped kitchen which is open to the south facing conservatory style dining area that has some occasional seating and fold back glazed doors opening onto a large wrap around patio. A large teak table and chairs, a custom steel barbecue and a well-stocked herb garden cater for any alfresco dining requirements, in addition to sun loungers, spacious lawns and stunning views. The living room, situated at the rear with comfy seating and doors opening onto patio and lawn, features a wall-mounted wood-burning stove creating a truly relaxing atmosphere. There is a further study/TV room with board games and seating and a cloakroom. The stairs lead to the open gallery landing giving access to the bedrooms. Gardens and meadowland surround the property and there are also footpaths from the doorstep. Within a mile of the property is the World Heritage site that houses the world’s first water-powered cotton spinning factories and just under 4 miles is the delightful town of Matlock Bath boasting smart riverside cafés and bars. Slotted in between are more traditional pubs, restaurants, tea shops and ice cream parlours. Here visitors can experience a cable car ride up the dramatic face of the gorge The Heights of Abraham and admire the views of ‘Little Switzerland’ as Byron once described this area. Shop and pub ¼ mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Beautiful well presented property in a lovely location with excellent views and walks from the doorstep. Tasty homemade cakes and desserts left for our arrival, but didn’t see the owner or housekeeper all week. Generally very well equipped and yet basics such as oven gloves and dish cloth missing. Beds very comfortable, but settees very lumpy. July 2012.
  2. This was a lovely cottage, exactly what I was expecting and perfect for our family with teenagers and grandparents. The weather was pretty wet so a shame we could not explore the area more but there were some nice walks from the house and we were very comfortable indoors especially as my husband had to connect to work from the office. Thank you for a nice stay. June 2012.
  3. Although old in appearance, the cottage is very modern inside and very spacious. The kitchen/dining space is excellent for a large group although it can get very hot in good weather. The kitchen was well equipped and the large fridge/freezer a bonus. The garden being fully enclosed is great for kids to play out in without worrying about them. March 2012.
  4. An absolutely fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. The quality of the fittings was superb and the value for money was excellent. On arrival, we were met with homemade bread, fresh eggs, a homemade lemon drizzle cake and a bottle of wine! There were 7 of us staying the cottage and there was more than enough space for all of us. It was quite difficult to find the property as there was no mention of the grand automatic gates so make sure that you look out for them if you get lost. March 2012.
  5. Absolutely beautiful property, the owner has impecable taste and has not scrimped on anything at all! Dec 2011.
