This is a great, well appointed little cottage in an ideal area for exploring the best of Derbyshire. We would recommend without any hesitation.
Mr Chandler

This is the third time I've stayed here and I continue to be very happy with the property.

I've stayed at this cottage several times before, as it's perfect for me and you always get a warm welcome from the owner.

The cottage is a few steps from an entrance to Allestree Park, which is huge and a wonderful dog-walking experience. Across the road is a pub serving food all day which allows dogs in. Blenheim Parade, with shops for food/newspapers etc is 5-10 minutes' walk and bus service is even closer on Duffield Road for Matlock, Bakewell, and more. The sports ground is 2 minutes' walk away for a short dog walk (and friendly dog owners galore). The owners are fabulous, with explanations of how everything works. Every cooking appliance is there so it is really a home-from-home and for TV addicts, there is not only the large flat-screen in the lounge, but also others in the kitchen and bedroom.

No 7 Allestree is a charming cottage, full of character and with everything one needs for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. The owners go out of their way to provide a warm welcome and to make their guests feel at home. It is the second time we have stayed in this cottage and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
Mr Davison
March 2015
Had a really enjoyable holiday. A holiday is all the more enjoyable when you have a good standard accommodation. Number 7 is a special place. It's a home away from home, and spot on for transport and local shops. Even 2 miles from Derby city centre, it has a village feel. I enjoyed it so much I might even stop there again.
Mrs Sims
April 2015
Lovely property, lovely owners and a lovely location.
Mrs Templeton
March 2014
The cottage was clean and tidy and everything we needed was supplied. The shops were a 5 minute drive away and the pub a few minutes walk away. Everything was on our doorstep and the nearby park provided a wonderful walking opportunity for our dog. The owners were welcoming and so friendly. It was peaceful and calm, was a perfect place to stay.
Miss Hughes

This is the third time I have stayed at this property. The nearby pub serves good-value food with friendly service. There is always a warm welcome to the cottage itself, which is in very good condition, and the plants are very impressive. I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone looking to stay near Derby. Allestree Park is lovely.
Mr Camp
January 2015
The cottage was very warm and cosy. Had a lovely greeting on arrival from the owners. This cottage is perfectly placed for tourists being quite close to everything including a very regular bus service. A very enjoyable stay.

I have now stayed at this property five times and it's perfect for my holiday requirements - I don't drive, and shops/pub are within walking distance.
Mrs Burns

The cottage had everything you needed, very clean. Owners very friendly and helpful. Allestree has a lovely park, Derby has a great shopping centre. We went to Matlock Bath and visited The Heights of Abraham. Nottingham is a great city. Local pub does great food. People very friendly and lots of places to visit.

Well equipped cottage made for a comfortable stay, in a good location in the south of the Peak District. Easy to get to a number of villages and historic properties and plenty of walks around.

Lovely cottage in a quiet location yet close to amenities. The owner was extremely helpful and caring. Tea tray was made up and a bottle of sparkling wine was chilling in the fridge. Perfect!
Mrs Hughes
November 2011
Lovely warm welcome from the owners. Good food pub, very reasonable prices, just across the road. Large bed with luxurious bedlinen. Flower boxes at front, rear and windows made the cottage idyllic. Easy parking outside.
Mrs Calladine
October 2011
We received a warm welcome from the owners. Great location; easy to access the city or countryside. Cottage just great. We have paid more than twice this amount in the past for so-called luxury accommodation that was no where near this standard. People could learn a lot from the standard of No. 7 and the care and attention to detail. A TV times programme was even provided! Congrats. to the owners.
Mr Russell
October 2011
A great place to stay, a very nice cottage. The owners are a lovely couple. Nearby there is a lovely park for the dog, and great pub along the road which made you feel so welcome. All in all we would come back again.
Mr Mills
September 2011
A really comfortable home from home and thank heavens a brilliantly comfortable king size bed, a spacious bathroom with a good shower and comfy chairs, including a recliner in the lounge. No shortage of TVs either! All set very near Allestree Park and ideal for dog walking. Wish we could have stayed longer. The owners were there to welcome us which was nice too.
Mr Hayes
June 2011
This was our 2nd visit here and it was every bit as good as our 1st. We would highly recommend this cottage and the surrounding area. We will visit again.

We received a warm, friendly welcome by the owners. A lovely cosy cottage ideal for two and set in a very good area with plenty to see and do. The enclosed rear garden is ideal for pets.
Mr Hayes
April 2011
A very nice setting. Owners very welcoming. Superb cottage and we would highly recommend. We will certainly return here. There is plenty to see and do in this lovely part of the country.

This was the 2nd time I've stayed in this wonderful holiday cottage just north of Derby city centre. Last year I was on a diet and couldn't accept the bottle of prosecco that the owners thoughtfully left in the fridge - this year, I could! :-) Not just prosecco, though - the owners leave a pint each of skimmed, half, and whole milk in the fridge, along with at least a months' worth of tea, coffee, and sugar (two kinds) for your stay. Too many holiday cottage owners cut too many corners - not these folk. Everything you need for a wonderful holiday is here, including more TVs than you can watch (lounge, kitchen, bedroom) and ample clothing storage in the bedroom. The 6* buses from Derby city centre will get you to Blenheim Parade (with a Co-Op, Tesco, newsagents, and more; a 5-10 minute walk to the cottage) or, you can take a TransPeak bus from Derby bus station to Duffield Road/Park Road, and walk up the Church Walk pathway (next to the fireplace store) to the CofE church directly opposite the cottage. The Red Cow pub directly across the road serves food all day long - and is dog-friendly inside and out - and nothing can beat Allestree Park for dog walks through woods, streams, ponds, and across the (18-hole) golf course. The southern access to Allesstree Park is just steps from the cottage's front door. (Note that food/drinks from Allestree Hall aren't available Mon-Weds-Fri.) Bakewell, Buxton, Matlock, and more are accessible via public transport or car for day trips. This really is a wonderfully quiet, tranquil, and dog-friendly cottage for all Derbyshire holidays.
Miss Halford

The cottage is in the perfect location opposite the church and pub. It feels like being in a village but it is only a 5 minute car ride to the center of Derby. The cottage was well decorated and clean. The owners were really helpful and had thought of everything to make the stay feel like a home away from home.
Mrs Jodrell
September 2010
All fine, very convenient for Derby and surrounding area. Church and pub very close. Altogether a very nice break.
Mr Batson
January 2011
The cottage was so warm and comfortable through the very cold weather and very convenient to bus routes and the pub! Could not have asked for a better property.
Mr Mrs Marsh
February 2011
A warm, comfortable and homely cottage in an ideal location for town shopping and country walking. Holiday homes for two do not come better than this!
Miss Buckley
March 2011
The cottage was well presented and very clean, we were met by the owners who were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend to family and friends.
Mrs Templeton
April 2011
Everything was just perfect from the time we walked into the property. There was plenty of parking outside, nice and spacious inside. The garden was so tranquil and peaceful. The owner showed us the park to walk the dog and it was in close proximity to all the attractions.
August 2012
Stopping in this cottage over Christmas was superb. The cottage is so cosy and in a brilliant location. A lovely church across the road and an old pub within a stones throw. The owners are great people and so helpful.
July 2013
Lovely cottage,great area to stay in,very good pub 50 yards. There is a lovely park round the corner for your dog. The couple that own the cottage are so nice,and very helpful. Overall we would highly recommend.
August 2013
We were met by the friendly owners who went to great lengths to make sure that we were comfortable with everything about the property and the village. The cottage and garden was picturesque and immaculately presented, Everything we could possibly need was there in the cottage. What was surprising was the pleasantness of the location - only a couple of miles from Derby city centre and close to a large residential housing area, but here we were in the middle of a quiet and peaceful country village, with the church and pub just opposite - charming!
December 2013
This is the third time I've stayed in this property; as my partner and I don't drive, it's great to stay somewhere which is within walking distance of some shops, just across the road from a pub which serves food (very nice!) and also just round the corner from the very lovely allestree Park, which is perfect for dog-walking. The property itself is very cosy, with a lovely garden/patio area - and amazingly well-kept hanging baskets/plant troughs. I would definitely stay here again.
January 2015
We arrived at the cottage and were met by the owner who gave us a lovely welcome. the cottage is situated in a prime position between derby and the peak district. we were there for a week and ventured out every day to see some stunning scenery or visit a stately home like chatsworth house. The cottage is pet friendly with a nice courtyard garden , and is just across the road from a country park where our little dog holly could enjoy some long walks. I would recommend this cottage.
September 2011
Number 7 is a perfect property for a couple. Very comfortable and a great location near to park and pub but also the city centre. Thank you for being dog friendly!
December 2011
