  • Car advised

Bonsall is a quaint, friendly and very active village on the edge of the stunning Peak District, a historic former lead mining settlement set in steeply converging limestone dales. Found in the hills south east of Matlock, Bonsall has a charming atmosphere and is popular with lovers of the outdoors – a walker's paradise! Surrounded by lovely countryside, lead mining caverns and caves, and even a defunct volcano, Bonsall is full of interest. Many miners tracks as well as packhorse tracks criss-cross the Bonsall countryside.

Nearby Cromford is acknowledged as the home of the industrial revolution, where Richard Arkwright built the first water powered spinning mill, constructing the majority of the village to house the extensive workforce. Bonsall was also a centre for framework knitting, upstairs rooms were used to make hosiery which was sold back to local mills. Matlock Bath is a popular tourist destination, 5 minutes drive or a pleasant 20 minute walk away.

Cobbles holiday apartment is conveniently situated at the centre of the village, behind the Fountain Tea Rooms, which opens daily for breakfasts, lunches, drinks and home made cakes and scones. Park with swings, climbing apparatus and slide nearby. Convenient for local bus service.

The recently converted apartment has a spacious king size double bedroom and twin room, and a modern and functional open plan living/dining/kitchen area, furnished and decorated throughout to a very high standard. Located on the first floor of a converted barn, with vaulted ceilings, complete with contrasting exposed beams and remotely controlled ceiling fans in each room. The fully tiled bathroom has a separate bath and shower, heated towel rail and underfloor heating. The living area and both bedrooms have flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi connection available.

The village has two pubs serving fine ales, one of which, the Barley Mow, is the home of the World Championship Hen Racing Competition that takes place on the first Saturday of August every year. The Barley Mow is highly recommended for real ale and live music on Saturday evenings, with regular musicians open sessions on Fridays. The Kings Head is an ancient hostelry built in 1677 and to be found next to the fine stepped village cross.
