****please note applicable to Family Bookings- whilst the property is suitable for children of all ages - the ground floor has flagstone flooring and therefore attention must be paid by the parents as any fall by a young toddlers remains the parents responsibility. Upstairs we have light beige carpets and therefore we do not allow shoes upstairs - and we don not have Stair Gates - again this remains the parents responsibility - we would like each and everyone of our Guest who book with us to experience the house
in as much perfect condition each time - therefore if each Guest does not take this into consideration this makes our costs too high to make good each time and thus will not allow us to offer the house at the prices offered
Thank you for reading this and thank you for expressing an interest in Holidaying with us - Hope to see you soon

If Shopping is on your mind then Masson Mill - another Heritage site - is a 4 storey mill converted to selling clothes, household goods and offers good food - again well worth a visit - you can easily spend a good half a day there. approx 3.8 miles

Standwell House is fortunate to be located amongst this dreamy landscape - always looking green & lush.
Go round the corner into Holloway woods at any time of the year and you will find wonder!
The bluebells in Spring are amazing, as too are the wild garlic plants which flower giving off a tantalising scent. Summer brings early morning bird song and Autumn shows glorious shades of colour and if Winter brings the Snow it's just a picture post card to see.
Walk along the Cromford Canal or pop to Crich Village where you will find local village bakery serving tasty food, The cafe that appeared in the filming of 'Peak practice' some years ago, but none the less you can say ' you were there'.
Less than 1 mile away walk up to visit the famous Tramway Museum this is sign posted 4 cottages up from the house on the left hand side and take the most breath taking of walks over the hill top taking in all the views before reaching your destination.
If you fancy a little shopping there is Masson Mill Shopping Village which caters for people of all ages this is located along the A6 just 4 mins from Cromford.
Should you be staying over a weekend and fancy a nice Sunday Lunch 'The Bear' at Alderwasley gets your taste buds alight the moment you enter, it's a lovely walk over the canal bridge and up to the left where you will see the signs to Alderwasley which is approx. 2.5 miles
