From the owner


COVID-19: At least 48 hours will be left between bookings. Sorry, the cottage may not be used for people in Covid quarantine or isolation.

Wakedon cottage sits in private grounds at the end of a long driveway. The grounds are surrounded by open countryside overlooking the softly wooded Derwent Valley.

All the rooms are situated on the ground floor and each bedroom has en-suite facilities. The lounge-diner is light and airy with stable style doors to the garden. The kitchen and breakfast bar is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, fridge, microwave, etc. Both bedrooms have en-suite facilities. This is a secluded cottage, sitting far from any public footpaths or roads. However, should you need assistance, the owners B&B is just out of sight, and only 70 metres away. You will be within walking distance of the village of Crich, the National Tramway museum, the Cromford Canal, the World Heritage site of the Derwent Mills, and a very short drive from the major Houses and sights of the Peak District. Crich has several friendly pubs and restaurants, plus award winning butchers, and bakers. Rental includes, power, heating, towels and linen. When you arrive the cottage will be supplied with the basic ingredients for tea and biscuits. (you will also have a complimentary toilet roll and soap).There is one step to get into the cottage and there are no steps within the cottage. Wakedon cottage was created for us by a local master mason from the stone of an old stable and combines exterior charm with modern building standards. The cottage is kept warm in the winter and it is designed to be naturally cool in hot summers. Sorry, the cottage is not suited to children, no pets can be accommodated, and the rooms are all non-smoking.
