The Coach House Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Coach House is a beautifully presented cottage, next door to the local pub and set in the heart of the Peak District village of Crich and can sleep six people. The cottage has one double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, a bathroom, a fitted kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with a woodburner. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and two patios with furniture and BBQ, a lawn and a summer house with furniture. The Coach House is an ideal base for exploring the Peak District National Park and market towns.

The lovely village of Crich has a number of shops and public houses and more recently was the location for ‘Cardale' in the TV series "Peak Practice." The village is home to the National Tramway Museum, and trams move along the valley, making this an unusual way to see the stunning views. To see other spectacular views a cable car ride to the Heights of Abraham near Matlock is a necessity. At the top, there are many more attractions to be enjoyed, from an owl maze to water gardens. There are many impressive stately homes and halls in the area; Chatsworth House and Park with its garden centre and farm shop are worth a visit as is Haddon Hall. The village is an ideal base for a holiday in this lovely area.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Gas central heating with woodburner in sitting room. Electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, 4 x TVs with Freeview and DVD, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 2 cars. Two patios with furniture and BBQ, lawned gardens and summerhouse with furniture. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shops and pubs 1 min walk.

We appreciated the comprehensive provision of all we needed at The Coach House. Especially enjoyed the garden in lovely weather.. Chose cottage for ease of access to village with pushchair. The owner was very helpful.

We were extremely happy with the cottage, it is a credit to the owners. We would like to return in July, I have recommended the cottage to our friends.

A beautiful cottage which was wonderfully decorated, furnished and well equipped. There was a lovely big garden and friendly owners. The open fire was so cosy and the beds comfy - we all slept well, including our nocturnal 3 year old!

This was our second stay at The Coach House and again it exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the garden this time as the weather was perfect to relax and enjoy. The facilities are second to none, one of the best self catering cottages we have stayed in.

I have stayed in many holiday cottages in the UK and we immediately felt at home, relaxed and comfortable in The Coach House. It was spotlessly clean and we felt very welcome!
Mrs Bell

A great cottage with attention to detail which made our stay perfect. The fresh scones waiting for us on arrival were delightful, the fire ready laid was welcoming. The owners have gone to a great deal of effort to make this cottage warm and cosy. A great location for exploring the area and has local shopping facilities on the doorstep.
Mrs Briggs

The position of the accommodation was good for visiting the surrounding areas attractions. The accommodation was considerably better than expected with many welcoming touches and assistance from the owners that truly made the holiday.

This cottage was perfect - large enough but still cosy and homely. Loved it, especially the log burner.
Mr Paget
July 2014
A beautiful cottage, we really enjoyed our stay. Had a spacious garden ideal for the dog and in a lovely area with many places to visit.
Mr Bell
July 2014
On arrival there was a lovely welcome pack, including milk, butter, scones, jam etc. The property was spotlessly clean and there was everything you could want. The owners were very friendly, even Mack the Dalmatian! The garden was well equipped and secure for our dog. The only thing that would improve the cottage would be an additional toilet. We would definitely consider staying again and would certainly recommend to friends.
Mrs Freeborn

This was by far the best cottage we've ever rented. It was gorgeous - beautifully furnished and equipped, really well decorated with lots of beautiful touches. It was comfortable, cosy and roomy and had a fantastic garden in which our dog could run about safely.
Mrs Morris
April 2014
The house was beautifully decorated and clean, but still felt like a home. We always have a friendly welcome. Lots of personal touches - toiletries, teabags, cakes and this year, Easter eggs for the girls. Crich is in a good location for the Peak District and for friends and family near Derby. It also has excellent walks from the door for our dog.
Mrs Campbell

Fabulous, well equipped cottage in a great location. Everything was of a very high standard - one of the best equipped kitchens we have ever come across.

Lovely clean house which was very homely. Fresh scones and cream on arrival was a nice touch. Basic tea and coffee making facilities were there so we could make a cuppa while waiting for our supermarket delivery
Mr Hill

Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and furnished. Great location - 1 minute from shops and pub, 5 minutes from countryside walks. Very friendly and helpful owner next door, private secure parking and exclusive use of large enclosed garden.
Mrs Crowhurst

A very tastefully furnished cottage with the convenience of being in the heart of this sweet little village. Our party was aged from 3 to mid 70s and everyone was happy. Would definitely recommend this home from home.
Mr Bowen

Lovely well appointed cottage close to Matlock and the delights of the Peak District. The cottage has everything you need and is very comfortable. Owners always on hand for assistance if needed.
Mr Bullard

Fantastic cottage, made very homely by the small touches, including scones, cream, and jam on arrival. The best self catered accommodation that we have ever stayed in and the garden was a delight, particulary for our dog.
Mrs Fletcher

Lovely, warm and cosy. Logs for the fire, friendly owners. Well equipped. Couldn't fault it, perfect.
Mr Good

The Coach House was everything we wanted and more. The garden was a joy to sit in. A nice surprise to find tea coffee milk sugar, and a gorgeous cake waiting for us on arrival. The location was great five minutes to Gullivers Kingdom and the Heights of Abraham and a further few minutes for Alton Towers. We hope to return to The Coach House fairly soon.

We had lovely stay. The cottage was very clean and had everything we would need. There was a lovely large bath, and a nice open fire. The beds were all very comfortable.
Miss Finn

The cottage was perfect for a break with family or friends. The lounge had ample seating for comfort and the log burner was lovely and cosy over winter. The cottage was in an ideal location to get to other areas for some great walks. The walking books were useful too! Would definitely recommend to others.
November 2015
We stayed in this lovely cottage with our Dog Humphrey and loved every minute. Location is perfect with a local store, butchers, bakery, Indian, Fish & chip shop and a few local pubs on your door step. The cottage itself is really cosy, beautifully presented and very clean. The walking books and local information the owners have provided are very helpful to plan ahead. We will book again - can't wait for more scones!!
Mrs Mathers
February 2013
The best holiday cottage we have stayed in in 30plus years of renting. Wonderfully equipped, beautifully furnished, 'excellent' doesn't begin to do it justice. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Location was also very good, in the centre of a lively village, with good choice of eating places, food shops etc. Even in winter lots to do.
March 2015
Well what can I say ?? This place is a little stunner, from the fresh scones on arrival to the log burning fire and very deep bath, it was all perfect. We are a group of fourty and fifty something's that fancied a few days away, we certainly chose well with The Coach House, it was clean, quaint and most importantly next to the pub ! Don't worry though the pub isn't rowdy and the walls are two feet thick. If you decide to do the recommended five mile walk do it in reverse as the way we did it was a little up hill at the end (felt like a mountain) but still thoroughly enjoyable. The Cliff Inn next to the tram museum is the place to go for home made food and something called real ale (not my bag) we were made to feel very welcome, even after I ordered lager !! The landlord of the Black Swan (pub next door) is a good sort and made us feel like locals from the moment we walked in. All in all a lovely cottage in a great location.
December 2012
The property provided us with a refuge from the grandchildren after an exciting Christmas and room to have all the children together. The property was extremely well fitted out and finished a lovely welcome pack and helpful hosts.

Lovely, very clean ,home from home ,will return. could not find anything that we was not happy with we had lovely home made scones ,jam and butter on our arrival which was lovely thought thank you
October 2015
The photos of the cottage do not do it justice. It is far more beautiful in real life. The cottage has everything you could need and more... We visited as a family with partners in tow and the dog! The pub could not be closer as its next door. Great walks from the doorstep, perfectly situated for visiting Bakewell. Scones were a welcome gift and we very well received. Would list it as one of our favorites and would like to visit again soon.

A nice clean cottage, with some nice welcoming touches. The location on a main road on the high street in Crich means you can get some traffic. The description is accurate. If you are going as 2 families, the lack of an extra wc might cause a problem. If you have a shaver or electric toothbrush, take an adaptor as there is no shaver socket. With the check out time at 10am, the last day felt a little rushed. However location and check out time are stated, so it is not a criticsm of not being told, merely something to consider.
February 2015
Me and my friends from Newcastle, Leeds and Essex met here for a lovely weekend break. We regularly have weekend breaks across Derbyshire but this has been the best to date. The owner was friendly and welcoming. The cottage was to a very high standard and the little extra treats made it really special- homemade scones, the fire all set up ready to be lit and toiletries. Would definitely recommend and will be back in the future.
January 2015
A lovely cottage, cosy and attention to detail was evident throughout. Scrumptious scones and cream on arrival, fire laid ready for use, well stocked with everything you could imagine. Family of six and pip the dog had a great stay.
September 2014
This place is a real gem. Incredibly comfortable, beautifully furnished and equipped, you're hard pressed to find anything to criticise and - frankly - you'd be a curmudgeon if you did. We stayed here for our second week (although we've visited Crich many times) and were blessed with such good weather that we were able to enjoy sitting out in the little courtyard and playing in the large garden (which is equipped with a range of of seating) with our dog. Once again, we arrived to a gorgeous clotted cream, jam and scones tea and each night (even though it wasn't very cold) settled in the sitting room in front of the log burner. We'd taken dvd films of our own, but there's a huge number (I estimated at least 80) provided to choose from, almost all very family-friendly. There's also a bookcase full of the kind of books I love to read and excellent folders are provided with all manner of suggestions for days out and activities in and around the area. Crich is almost self-contained in terms of amenities - within 100 metres of the cottage are a mini market (which has well-priced wine), a butcher, the excellent Loaf deli and cafe, an Indian restaurant and next door is the White Swan, a pub that does food as well as take away fish and chips - we ordered, were sent home to wait and they brought our order round to the house! I can't recommend the Coach House highly enough. It's not only a gorgeous cottage, but it's in a lovely village in the beautiful county of Derbyshire.

Beautifully presented accommodation throughout. Very high standard of equipment and lovely home comforts await guests upon arrival. Would highly recommend the coach house as a great base for exploring this beautiful part of Derbyshire.
August 2014
Lovely cottage in a great location. Beautiful secure garden with plenty of garden furniture, BBQ and a delightful summer house! Comfy lounge with woodburner and plenty of seating. Lots of lovely extra touches, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, biscuits, scones, jam, cream, butter and fudge. Owners very helpful, it was our daughters 21st birthday during our stay and we had family visit for afternoon tea in the garden, thanks for the help Charlotte, David and family! One of the best cottages we have stayed in.

We've rented quite a few times in Crich before - it's our favourite place to go in the UK - and we've always been happy with the places we've stayed. This one, however, knocked the others into the proverbial cocked hat. It's a gorgeous, historical building, beautifully furnished and equipped, with lots of space for a group of up to six and you can take your well-behaved dog along, too. The Coach House is right in the centre of Crich, so it's just footsteps away from all the village's amenities and shops, pub, bakery/deli/cafe, post office and so on. The week got off to a splendid start when we arrived at the beginning of gorgeous Spring weather and found a cracking cream tea awaited us in the kitchen. There's off-street parking in the grounds (shared with the lovely family who own The Coach House, but don't worry - they're on hand if you need them but never invade your privacy), a great, enclosed garden for games with your dog, quiet contemplation or a nice read in the sunshine and a cute, enclosed patio outside the cottage door which is good for morning coffee or an early evening snifter. There is a good-sized lounge with wood-burner (although the central heating works well), a separate dining room which seats six diners and a kitchen in which two can sit - we ate most of our meals there when there was just the two of us, but appreciated having the dining table when our friend came to join us. Upstairs is the loveliest bathroom - complete with claw-foot bath tub and a separate shower cubicle - that I've encountered in a rental cottage. There are three generously-sized bedrooms (one double and two twin), each with its own TV (there is, of course, a TV and dvd player, plus lots of dvds, in the lounge). There is wifi broadband... I'm writing this on the fifth night of our 7 night stay. After that, I'm going to have a look at when we might come back again!
March 2013
Stayed for 3 nights with family on a cold weekend. House was cosy and warm so we sat by the log fire in the evening drinking wine, chatting and playing games. Bathroom with its enormous bath was amazing. Bedrooms all lovely. Best equipped cottage I have ever stayed in.. Visited Matlock, Matlock Bath, Buxton, Bakewell. All lovely.
November 2013
Yes I agree with all of the previous comments of this cottage. However I think the addition of a TV in every bedroom is an unnecessary extra as surely people spending holiday together want to do so in each others company. One of the TV's could be better put in the kitchen so that the cook could still watch it. The only thing missing from the cottage is a downstairs loo.
