We stayed here for our second week in the Peak District as part of our honeymoon. We were very glad we had booked a different cottage for our second week as our first did not go well. This cottage was a lovely counteraction to that and meant we did not leave the Peak District with only bad memories.
As there was just the two of us, the cottage was very spacious. For 4 adults it would be a bit tight but for a couple it was luxurious and for a family it would be perfectly comfortable. The cottage has a wonderful history, which the owners have thoughtfully explained in a file in the cottage. It is next to the village shop, which is very convenient but the carefully screened garden means you are not affected by the comings and goings in the shop. It is only a few minutes walk to several pubs and restaurants and Baslow itself has a really lovely feel. We treated ourselves to a meal at Fischers at Baslow Hall, which we would recommend to anyone wanting a special meal during their stay and getting a taxi there and back, even given the rural location was very reasonable.
The cottage is decorated to a high standard for a holiday home and is very comfortable and cosy - the fire in the living room was lovely to take the chill off, even on a June evening! We found the beds very comfortable - this is a personal thing as I prefer a firm mattress for my back but I would not have thought it too hard for others. It also was equipped with everything you need and has plenty of storage space which makes for a more pleasant stay.
It is easy to walk to Chatsworth from the cottage, which we did and then around the estate. All in all the cottage is set in a great location, easy to get to lots of places both walking and driving and we would recommend to all.
