Property Description

This imposing 19th century building was originally the coach house and stables for the nearby ‘Owl Coaching Inn’ (reputedly a haunt of highwayman Dick Turpin), that’s now a farm some 2 miles from the historic Derwent Valley mill town of Belper. The building has been most sympathetically converted and retains hand-cut lintels, vaulted coach-ways on the exterior, and superb barrel-vaulted ceilings, all emphasise the historical importance of this Grade II-listed structure. The original arched coach entrances now have French windows that open onto flag stone terraced areas. Turpin’s Cottage, in the grounds of the farm with another property, overlooks a wooded dell, and adjoins a 2-acre paddock and a play field with ample parking. Belper’s formal river gardens, visitor centre, and historical mills, now a World Heritage site, are within 2 miles. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Matlock and Matlock Bath, and the popular market town of Bakewell, are all a short drive away. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This cottage is huge and really well set out for separate family groups who are meeting up as each pair of double and twin rooms has it’s own separate balcony with it’s own bath or shower room. The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped. Everywhere was tastefully furnished and the children loved the games room with pool table. Thank you so much!! Dec 2011.
  2. Great property where all rooms are of a good size. Good value for money. Oct 2011.
  3. Incredible building with a lovely big lounge which isn’t shown on the photos. There are no bad bedrooms either. Jan 2011.
  4. Turpins Cottage is a great place for people to get together. Lovely lounge and dining room, capable of catering for 20 people. The pictures on the web site didn’t do the place justice. The place has so much character. Also the paddock was very useful for games and entertainment. All-in-all, superb. Dec 2010.
  5. Whilst it was on its own and therefore private it was near to Belper and other towns. Excellent parking and room to kick a football. May 2010.
  6. I booked this cottage to celebrate a 50th birthday. The cottage was excellent in its location, the surrounding area was idea for walking, biking and boating the cottage catered for every need it was clean and very welcoming. A great place for a large group to enjoy each other company in a great place. April 2010.
  7. Good design for a large group with three social areas. Plenty of room for us all in the main sitting room and dining room. April 2010.
  8. We had a large family get-together over the weekend - 10 adults and 9 children. The configuration of the accommodation was ideal for the four families with children plus the grandparents, and the children had fun playing outside while the adults chatted on the terrace. July 2009.
  9. Property was accurately described and suited our needs. Well furnished and equipped. The open space was ideal for the children to play. July 2009.
  10. An excellent venue for a big party of friends and family centrally situated and with lots of lovely countryside and interesting features to visit close by. I would certainly visit again. Everybody loved the dining room especially. Feb 2009.
  11. Well laid out with good sitting areas. July 2009.
  12. Absolutely magnificent property. Was above and beyond my expectations and will definitely be coming back again. Made my birthday celebrations very special and for that I thank you very much. Oct 2007.
