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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very very relaxing and peaceful cottage, though the heating was abit to much for us, we holidayed the first week of October, if eating out it would be a good ideal to call ahead to the local and surrounding pubs as they not all serve meals every night, we would recommend the boat house for real home made food, it’s good to go out for a meal and get home made chips, the boat house is in matlock. Oct 2012.
  2. Very comfortable, clean & well equipped. Excellent views over the hills. Good base for days out - would recommend! May 2011.
  3. Decorated to a high standard. The under floor heating was a great bonus! Feb 2011.

  10. Very clean and well presented, the welcome gift of wine and biscuits was a nice touch. Feb 2010.

  13. Beautiful location with lots to do in the area for a family. Lime House was very comfortable and well equipped. Aug 2009.
  14. Fantastic location & loved the spiral staircase. Aug 2009.
  15. Lovely cottage, pictures on website don’t do it justice. They should include the beautiful staircase, and maybe a better outdoor photo as the one on website made me think the cottage was dated, which it wasn’t. It had a lovely modern feel. Owners very welcoming and accommodating, as well as being very helpful when i got slightly lost. Feb 2008.
  16. The cottage was furnished to a very high specification and was sparkling clean and very comfortable. The welcoming bottle of wine and packet of biscuits was also a very nice touch. June 2008.
  17. Beautifully & tastefully furnished cottage, spectacular views, wonderful to have on-line facilities & a dishwasher. Welcome pack of a bottle of wine gratefully received after along & fraught journey. This was all in stark contrast to our summer holiday booked with a rival company. Oct 2008.
