Description

Situated right in the centre of the Derwent Valley mill town of Belper, in a conservation area. Originally built for the workers of Strutts Mill, Creelers Cottage is an excellent base for touring this beautiful area of Derbyshire. Belper was at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution and the Strutts North Mill Museum is part of the World Heritage Site which is next to the beautiful Belper river gardens. Also situated in this town you will find a good array of pubs, bistros, coffee shops and restaurants. The cottage is around 10 miles from Matlock Bath and the lovely market town of Ashbourne, and is on the doorstep of the beautiful Peak District National Park. The Peak District National Park has something for everyone to enjoy including walking, cycling, climbing, caving, fishing and sailing at the nearby Carsington Water Centre. Why not visit one of the many historic country estates nearby such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the Hardwick Estate. Nearby in the spa town of Matlock Bath you can take a cable car ride to the Heights of Abraham, or why not visit the Crich Tramway Museum where you can enjoy a ride in a vintage tram.
