Penny Cottage description

Tucked away in the beautiful village of Bonsall, this perfect ‘chocolate box’ hideaway has been expertly turned into a secret haven by the owner’s keen eye for interior design and renovation. Exquisite soft furnishings and furniture, along with a cosy woodburner, add to the charm and character. Penny Cottage sits detached, directly on the Limestone Way where you can experience charming fields, dales, caves, cliffs, gorges, woodland and riverside paths along the route. Bonsall is a village of 1000 inhabitants in the Derbyshire Dales on the edge of the Peak District and has a long history of lead mining, possibly going back to Roman times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bonsall inhabitants have been involved in the textile industry, pre- and post-Arkwright. In early modern times it was on an important salters’ route, and was a staging post on the road between Derby and Manchester. Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park and just a short drive from the famous Arkwright Mills at Cromford, Penny Cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore the region’s attractions. Matlock and Bakewell are close by, as is the picturesque village of Crich with its fantastic Tramway Village, while majestic Chatsworth House and Carsington Reservoir, with its sailing centre, are well worth a visit. After a day exploring, sit in the beautiful garden with a glass in hand as the sun sets over the tree-lined fields. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
Living room with wood-burning stove. Dining room with quarry-tiled floor. Galley-style kitchen with quarry-tiled floor. First floor: Two double bedrooms, one with 5ft bed. Shower room with double cubicle and toilet.
