Bonsall is a pretty and quiet village, linked to the famous Limestone Way path and blessed by two great pubs and a cafe-restaurant. It has two atmospheric spacious bedrooms, a galleried study, dining area , luxury bathroom and kitchen. You can explore the region by the network of footpaths or strike out by car or bike to the nearby historic attractions such as Chatsworth Hall, Haddon Hall and Arkwright's Mill, a World Heritage Site.

Bonsall is famous for UFO sightings: Especially after the pubs close.

Eat in or out on the dining terrace with only the sounds of farm and wildlife for company, or stroll to one of the village pubs. There are too many other good eating options in nearby towns and villages than there is room to mention here, but Michelin-starred Fischer's Hall at Baslow perhaps should be.

Serious walkers, climbers and cyclists have endless choices beginning at the doorstep or from points across the National Park.

Further details indoors

You enter into a small hall, off which is a cloakroom. The hall leads into the lounge that has a welcoming gas coal effect fire inset in a natural stone surround fireplace.

Off the lounge is the kitchen that has a large gas cooking range and all the essential equipment you will need for your stay.

Two stone steps from the lounge lead to the dining room and there is a further door that takes you into the garden.

Stairs from the dining area lead to the galleried landing that has a study area, two bedrooms and the bathroom.

One bedroom has a king size bed and the other has a double bed, both bedrooms have vaulted beamed ceilings.

The wall art, including the spectacular tiger, was painted by Lithuanian artist Kai Suede - see more at

The large bathroom includes an enclosed seat or stand steam sauna and multi jet shower unit, rolled top bath with claw and ball feet, toilet and hand basin.

Duvets, linen and towels provided.

Further details outdoors

The extensive rear hillside garden is on four levels and there is a large outdoor table and chairs on a spacious deck, perfect for alfresco dining.

The garden is very steep and care does need to be taken, there are a couple of sitting areas with good views of the village and beyond, and there is a small cottage garden at the front. There is also a pond frequented by frogs and newts! Above the cultivated section (which is only one third of the total area) there is a wilderness left to nature.

Families with children could fill two weeks of high energy fun, starting with exploring the wilderness hillside garden above the cultivated and decked terraces and pond area above the cottage. Official attractions begin in Matlock Bath, with Old England's take on Disney at Gulliver's Kingdom theme park and the caves and cable car at Heights of Abraham , continue at the extensive park at at Matlock Town (half-pipes for skateboarders, boats, trains, funky paddling pool, minigolf.. and of course Mr Arkwright's Mill and the adjacent mining museum.

Chatsworth - in addition to the elegant house and gardens - has a fantastic adventure park and children's farm. Drayton Manor Park and Alton Towers are within easy drive for world-class thrill seekers.

About this location

The Derbyshire region

There's always plenty to do the Peak District and Derbyshire, whether you're uncovering the secrets of the ancient custom of well dressing,

participating in a National Park Ranger guided walk, swinging high above the Derwent Valley on a cable car ride at the Heights of Abraham or having fun with the whole family at Alton Towers!

Whatever your interest, you'll find a huge range of events available, from walking festivals, sheep dog trials and country shows to farmers' markets, art exhibitions, music festivals, culinary demonstrations or even woodland laser quest in the National Forest!

Don't miss the regular concerts and events at stately homes such as Chatsworth or Calke Abbey, the joys of the famous opera house at Buxton or the annual food fair and historic re-enactments at Bolsover Castle.

There are hundreds of miles of waymarked paths as well as traffic-free routes such as the Tissington Trail and Manifold Track, which follow former railway lines.


Bonsall was voted Central England village of the year in 2009.

It is set in a deep sided dale beneath Masson Hill, a mile east of Matlock Bath and a mile north of Cromford in Derbyshire. Bonsall Brook rises on the upland and flows S. E toward Cromford where it proved significant in Richard Arkwrights choice of site for his mill. The 13th century stone built St James's Church stands in a prominent position overlooking the village. It has a fine tower surrounded by crowns and gargoyles and is surmounted by a splendid spire. The church has had many additions and extensions throughout the centuries. The village has two pubs with regular entertainment.

Cromford (down the hill!) is very definitely worth taking a closer look at, because it is steeped in industrial history and often called the cradle of the industrial revolution.

Before 1770, Cromford was little more than a cluster of cottages around an old packhorse bridge and a chapel where travellers gave thanks for a safe journey. All that was soon to change with the arrival of one man, Richard Arkwright. He began to build the worlds first successful water powered cotton spinning mill here in 1771 . Others copied his ideas and soon water powered cotton spinning mills began to spring up in Europe and America.

Cromford mill is now a world heritage site. The mill is open everyday and attracts visitors from all over the world. It has a visitors centre, shops and a cafe and plans are in hand for a major exhibition with working machinery, meeting rooms for schools and other educational groups, a library and a study centre.

There are 3 pubs in Cromford, one of which, the Greyhound Hotel was built by Arkwright, to house visitors to the mill and for the use by the local labour force. The other 2 are the Bell inn on North street and the Boat Inn on scarthin lane, where there is also an excellent little bookshop. Cromford is an excellent fly-fishing centre and good rock-climbing is to be had nearby. The Cromford Steam Fair is an annual event held in Cromford meadows.
