These all provide great family days out within easy driving distance.

We are situated just on the edge of the Peak Park and Dovedale is just a 20 minute drive away. If you enjoy walking there are some fantastic walks for the accomplished walker and we have also produced a booklet containing a variety of walks right from your cottage door, in and around the village. These range from 1 – 10 miles and are suitable for the whole family.

The closest swimming pools are at Matlock and Bakewell. There is also a swimming pool at Chesterfield which has a slide, toddler pool and three diving boards.

There is a folder in each cottage containing leaflets for all of these and so much more, to keep you entertained during your stay. There is also a folder containing local restaurants and take away menus.


Bonsall is a lovely and very active village. As well as a farm shop we have two pubs serving fine ales and food.

The Barley Mow is renowned for its Landlords guided walks, sighting of UFO’s! and annual hen racing on the first Saturday in August. Most Saturdays they have live music. If you're here on a bank holiday look out for their mini beer and music festivals.

The Kings Head has Saturday night entertainment and Sunday night quiz’s.

We also have a monthly village publications called The Mutterings with what’s on and all the latest village gossip!!

The last Saturday in July is our annual well dressing and carnival. There are events every evening of the following week culminating in a fantastic firework display on the Friday evening. A week not to be missed!

At the bottom of the driveway is a park with football pitch and a childrens play area with climbing frames, swings and a slide and is suitable for all ages!

Thank you very much for your review.
Just to verify, for visitors in the spring/summer, there is garden furniture in the courtyard. It was in storage at the time of your visit due to the time of year and the recent heavy snow.
