Getting around

We are centrally located to transport hubs but a car would enable trips to attractions lying away from the main towns. Blackbrook has a local bus service which runs during the day roughly every hour in both directions. Belper has a bus station which connects to many services. There is a branch line train station where trains run from Matlock to Newark via Belper, Derby and Nottingham. Taxies are very reasonably priced on a local run into Belper

“Fantastic Hidden Gem”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2017

This little cottage is just perfect! Clean and cosy and a perfect base for exploring this part of Derbyshire and beyond. Helen and Tony are perfect hosts - on hand if needed but totally respectful of your space and privacy. Everything in the cottage was of an excellent standard. The bedroom is wonderful and bed very comfortable and bedding of excellent quality. Little touches like a black out blind ensure you get a good nights sleep. A perfect few days and I will certainly recommend and return! Thank you. Penny

Owner's reply: Dear Penny We are so pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing time with us and will be pleased to see you again in the future. Best wishes Helen and Tony

Very well placed for walking, biking and discovering the secrets of the Peak District. Host there to greet us on arrival and cream tea ready inside! Very clean and everything you could need for self catering. Would recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the very good review. We are pleased that you enjoyed you visit to Derbyshire whilst you were in the UK. Best wishes Helen and Tony

Although we only stayed over a long weekend at the Mistal we found the accomodation everything we wanted it to be,the web photos not doing the "cottage" justice. A warm welcome from our hosts completed a perfect stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the very positive review, we are very pleased that you both enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you can come again! Helen and Tony

“Wonderful 'get-away' for two!”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2014

Mistal is a very comfortable cottage in a pleasant location. It was beautifully clean with fresh flowers and a tea-time snack provided. We enjoy walking and cycling and suitable trails are within easy reach. If you want a meal out, there are some excellent restaurants within 4 miles of the cottage. Helen is an excellent hostess! All in all, a great place to stay!

“An exceptionally peaceful and relaxing stay”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

I enjoyed a most peaceful stay in August of 2014. Helen is very accommodating and ensures she is on hand to attend to all needs. I was impressed with her consistent high level of service and attention to detail throughout the booking process which continued throughout my stay. The location of The Mistal is very accessible and the plentiful amenities at Belper are only a short distance away, "George's Tradition" fish and chip shop at Belper is definitely worth a visit! The local (and wider) area is very picturesque with beautiful rolling hills. There are plenty of tourist attractions within easy reach of The Mistal and there are lots of scenic walks nearby too. During my stay, I decided to have a stroll to "The Hanging Gate" public house, which is only around a 10 minute walk away. The food was delicious and the beer was good too. Turning to The Mistal itself, the cottage is very clean with all the usual necessities (and more) in all of the right places. The Mistal is peaceful with a relaxing living room, well fitted kitchen, clean bathroom and very comfortable beds. There are plenty of leaflets containing information of local "things to do" and Helen has put together a fantastic folder detailing all the things you would wish to know in order to get the most out of your stay. I very much recommend a visit to The Mistal or indeed the adjoining cottage.
