Property Description

These two delightful holiday cottages enjoy a charming position on the slopes of the Derwent Valley, with lovely views. Restored and refurbished to high standards, they enjoy shared use of an indoor heated swimming pool and unlimited, free use of a small golf course, set in 8 acres (plays 9 holes) by prior arrangement. Bakewell is just 4 miles away, an attractive market town with a choice of shops, inns and restaurants. Providing a point of interest for visitors, The Old House Museum displays a selection of rustic tools and costumes from Bakewell’s past, whilst for walkers, the Monsal Trail proves rewarding - spanning about eight miles and passing through some wonderful limestone valleys as it wends its way north to Wyedale. There are many fine country houses and interesting National Trust properties nearby, including Chatsworth House (Chatsworth Park is within walking distance). Built by the first Duke of Devonshire in the 17th century, it is set within vast grounds, landscaped by Capability Brown, and boasts the magnificent Emperor Fountain. Haddon Hall, 2 miles south of Bakewell, stands on the banks of the River Wye, and whilst not as grand as Chatsworth, stands as a fine example of a medieval manor house. The NT also owns several proeprties in the area, which make for worthwhile visits - including Sudbury Hall at Ashbourne (a late 17th-century house with sumptuous interiors, housing the Museum of Childhood within the service wing), and Hardwick Hall and Stainsby Mill, at Doe Lea, Chesterfield. Ilam Park (running along the River Manifold, with spectacular views towards Dovedale), and High Peak Estate (a vast area of outstanding walking country) also come under NT ownership and provide wonderful walking opportunities. For watersports enthusiasts, Carsington Water is within easy reach, with sailing, wind-surfing and canoeing all available. Matlock 6 miles, with swimming, cycle hire and golf. Shops ½ mile.

In superbly maintained landscaped gardens, with panoramic views of the Derwent Valley, this cottage (see second photograph) is attached to the owner’s home, with its own enclosed garden. Well-equipped kitchen. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Beamed sitting/dining room with ‘living-flame’ gas stove. First floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Overall comfortable with wonderful views. Minor disappointments were dated TV set (not easy to operate) and lack of electric sockets in bedrooms. Lovely swimming pool which was a bonus. July 2012.
  2. This property has a good central location for visiting lots of places in the Peak District. It is very comfortable and has a lovely garden with great views from the cottage. The pool and golf course are added bonuses. May 2012.
  3. This is a perfect location for visiting the Peaks. Lovely quite setting, but very quick access to A6 and M1 for visiting the sights. The pool was an added bonus - not a 25m lane pool, but big enough for children to spend an hour of fun - and who wants to do lengths when on holiday anyway! The owners were lovely giving us Easter eggs for the children and leaving us to enjoy our stay whilst being available should we require them. We would certainly stay again. April 2012.
  4. Excellent location with wonderful views, grounds, and the bonus of a heated indoor pool of a reasonable size. Walks from the cottage easily accessible. March 2012.
  5. Wonderful cottage in an excellent location. Owners extremely nice and helpful. The use of the swimming pool and small golf course absolutely made our holiday special, with the added bonus of hand feeding the pheasants in the garden. Sept 2011.
  6. Excellent location, great owners, hugely welcoming & accommodating. Lovely pool facility and beautifully kept golf course. Would go back again in a flash! June 2011.
  7. Loved the location of this property, having a golf course to ourselves was brilliant. April 2011.
  8. It was spotless. Spacious and great location and the owners were very accommodating and friendly. Oct 2010.
  9. It suited us perfectly and was exactly what we expected. Pool and golf course were main reasons for booking - and were made good use of in the week. Oct 2010.
  10. Warm and friendly hosts and the cottage setting and facilities provided met all our expectations. We would recommend Woodside without hesitation. Sept 2010.
  11. Very clean and comfortable. Sept 2010.
  12. Excellent location, lovely welcome, very helpful through the week, comfortable and clean. May 2010.
  13. It is well maintained and clean. The setting is stunning, the owners unfailingly helpful and attentive and the pool delightful. It is only a leisure pool and not large enough for a workout swim but was a welcome feature of a lovely holiday cottage. Nov 2009.
  14. Beautiful location, central for all local attractions. June 2009.
  15. Great location, wonderful views and very welcoming hosts. A fantastic place for a holiday with a young family (kids 6 and 7). April 2009.
  16. The views from the house were superb! Photographs just can’t do justice to the beauty of the surroundings. Also we felt very comfortable as the owners were so very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Feb 2009.
  17. The golf course and swimming pool were excellent and much appreciated . July 2009.
  18. Abraham Heights was really great, but you definitely need good weather for it, and Chatsworth was truly amazing, would recommend. The swimming pool at cottage was really good. Owners were really nice people and went out of their way to meet us, and check on us during the week, a truly lovely couple. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and your company to our friends and family. We will use your company again too.. accommodation was good although cluttered with owners belongings, amazing amount of wardrobe and drawer space in bedrooms, did lack some basic kitchen equipment such as chopping board. Aug 2009.
  19. The countryside was beautiful, and the help from the staff/owners fantastic, thanks for helping with the washing, feel like I had a holiday. April 2008.
  20. The owners of the cottage were more than helpful. The cottage was fantastic and we would love to go back. Aug 2008.
