The Derbyshire region
The area is famous for its wonderful scenery and country walks. The ultimate in “year round” appeal, the Peak District offers moorland countryside, picturesque villages, grand gardens and magnificent scenery. Britain’s first National Park, today the boundary of the Peak District National Park touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, rolling valleys and wooded dales. It is a perfect destination for walkers and climbers. From a gentle stroll to a full-scale hike, the Peak District has a walk to suit everybody.
For a day of history and elegance there is the beautiful Chatsworth House, where Capability Brown designed and landscaped the beautiful gardens in the 1760s. A visit to the lovely spa town of Buxton, home to St Anne’s Well, a public drinking fountain and source of the famous mineral water, is also recommended.
The Peak District’s many hospitable and picturesque villages such as Ashbourne, Bakewell and Matlock Bath still practice a range of ancient customs and traditions, including the ‘Well Dressings’ festival in the summertime. Below ground, a world of caverns and caves are waiting to be explored by cavers and pot-holers but also by the casual visitor with guided trips around the amazing and quite spectacular caverns and disused marble and stone mines-visit Peak Cavern or Blue John cavern, or join a magical boat tour of Speedwell’s flooded passages.
The quiet village of South Wingfield is only 1 mile from Crich and 2 miles from Alfreton. It has 2 public houses and a village shop. The Old Yew Tree Inn, serving food and cask ales and ciders at affordable prices, is only a short step away. Crich has a post office, a general store, a bakers, hairdresser, greengrocer, butcher & chemist as well as the National Tramway Museum. Alfreton is a larger town with banks and a wider selections of shops.
From The Old Creamery immediate access can be enjoyed to several walks and a wide network of public footpaths across rolling Derbyshire countryside and bluebell woodland. The imposing ruins of Wingfield Manor, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned can be seen from one of these local walks. The drive to Chatsworth House crosses the scenic “White Peak” and is a beautiful open road trip for the motor enthusiast.
Within a 10 mile radius there are many family activities including Gulliver’s Kingdom Theme Park, The Heights of Abraham and Hall Leys Park, which has many recreational activities such as mini golf, bowls, tennis, a boating lake, a miniature railway and a children’s play area. Matlock and Matlock Bath offer a range of activities such as climbing and canoeing and golf, shooting and horse riding are also available locally.

I had a great week here and the sun just shone every day which was a bonus. This is a quirky, well presented, very well appointed cottage with friendly welcoming owners who have a good eye for quality and detail. What you see in the pictures is what you get. It is a converted farm building with all the character you might expect. It is a very comfortable place to stay. South Wingfield is rural and a quiet village however it is not isolated. The residents are friendly without being intrusive. There are many attractions and quality restaurants within a short drive. A great base for access to the Peak District while having easy access to the East Midlands .

A true home from home.

Everything about our stay was perfect. The location was close to Matlock but far enough to ensure that our stay was peaceful. The local pub was very friendly and the food was very good. The cottage has a really nice layout and is perfect for couples planning to spend a few days in the Peak District. The owner of the cottage is very friendly and happy to help you. I will definitely be staying at The Old Creamery again in the near future.

"BEAUTIFULLY EQUIPPED AND VERY COMFORTABLE"
Clean and very well equipped. Loved the shortbread biscuits! Convenient for Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall. Will return for another stay to see the Tram Museum. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.

"Perfect Holiday Cottage!"
My friend and I recently stayed at the Old Creamery for a 'girly' weekend and we had a fantastic time. Priscilla was extremely helpful and friendly during the booking process and met us when we arrived to show us around. The cottage is lovely and had every amenity that we needed. The strawberry shortcake biscuits and homemade marmalade were an excellent welcome gift! The cottage was spotlessly clean and tidy and the rooms were very cosy. The small fires were definitely good as the weather had turned quite cold. The cottage is in a very good location, it has good viwes and is quiet yet it is close to local attractions. There is a local pub which is just a couple of doors down and although we only ate in there once (we were only there for three nights), the food was very good and they served generous portions for a very reasonable price. So, if you are looking for a lovely getaway cottage, with very reasonable prices, I would absolutely recommend The Old Creamery. My friend and I are definitely looking to go back again next year! Thank you Priscilla for making our weekend so wonderfult!

"Perfect Romantic Getaway for our Mini Honeymoon"
What a fantastic cottage!!!!! My new wife and I returned to The Old Creamery following our wedding and had a fantastic 3 night mini honeymoon. I had stayed the night previous to the wedding and was met with a very warm welcome from Priscilla (who I have to say had been extremely accommodating throughout the booking process!) and was so pleased to return to the cottage on the night of our wedding to a freshly cleaned property, all curtains drawn and, more lovingly, a card, bottle of champagne and a bouquet of flowers - such a wonderful touch from a very nice lady. We only live 30 mins down the road in Derby, but The Old Creamery felt like a world away. It is in a fantastic setting - great for walking and exploring Derbyshire. There is also a lovely pub, literally 30 paces away that serves very very nice food - big choice and all cooked superbly - we treated both sets of parents to a 2 course meal on our final night - 7 of us ate and drank and we had change from £70!! It really was a shame to have to leave on the Tuesday morning, but life goes on - or in our case, married life begins. A massive thank you, once again, to Priscilla - you helped to provide a wonderful start to married life. I wholeheartedly recommend you to stay at this property - you will not be disappointed.

"Lovely, welcoming cottage"
Travelled to The Peak District to do a Pride and Prejudice Location Tour and this cottage was perfectly located just on the edge of the area but very accessible from major routes. Very good communication with Priscilla ensured that she was waiting for us with a tour of the cottage. This is just about the best equipped cottage I have ever stayed in with all sorts of unexpected additions to make it like a home from home. We particularly liked the quality of the fittings (e.g. a new Sony TV where so many holiday lets go for something that they have probably got second hand and a good cooker). The master bedroom was large and very comfortable, with the twin bedroom being snug but very cosy. The best comment I can make is that when I asked my (20 year old) daughter which house she liked best from those we had seen (bearing in mind we had visited Lyme Park, Chatsworth, Sudbury Hall, Hardwick Hall e.t.c.) she said: The Old Creamery! Well done Priscilla - you've put thought and care into this place and we would love to return. I'd also like to mention that from the initial enquiry communication was quick and efficient. The WiFi was very helpful.

"A truly wonderful cottage in beautiful countryside."
We really enjoyed our break in the old creamery, Priscilla is such a thoughtful host, she really had thought of everything. The cottage is lovely, very clean and everything you could possibly need is there. We were made to feel very welcome and there was a nice little basket of goodies provided. It is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside and we are hoping very much to go back next year.

"A lovely place to stay"
We stayed only two nights at the Creamery and would have happily stayed longer. Priscilla was there to welcome us, despite our late arrival, and had left us milk and a welcome basket with some delicious home made shortbread. All the rooms are very comfortable, beautifully furnished and the whole place is light and cheery. I haven't ever stayed in such a lovely cottage. The area is ideal for walking and we spent part of Saturday looking at the well dressings. An added bonus is the pub next door which serves food. I would definitely recommend the Creamery and hope to come back for a longer stay.
