The cottage was ideally placed for our needs with pleasant, semi-open outlooks from the main windows. The village of Calver offers all one might reasonably need .... e.g. a ( very! ) nearby pub serving high quality food, a good general store, a post office and a petrol station. Varied and beautiful scenery is all around, and the wonderful stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are within easy reach. There is also an adequate rail service from several small, fairly local stations.
