Description

Holmefield Cottage is a beautiful, semi-detached holiday cottage set in the picturesque Peak District National Park, mid-way between Bakewell and Matlock, with its sister cottage Holmefield Coach House (UK4039). These properties are only a 5-minute drive from Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, with uninterrupted views over the Derwent Valley and the historic Peak Rail steam trains.
The popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, have been attracting visitors to the area since the spa was developed in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, they both offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car, which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family, with show caves, a nature trail, water gardens and the Owl Maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. To the north is Chatsworth House and Park, along with the market town of Bakewell. These properties are ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region, both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach from Bakewell, whilst the theme park, Alton Towers, is only a short drive away. These wonderful Derbyshire homes have the added benefit of a delightful patio area overlooking wonderful views – an ideal place to spend time over breakfast as you plan your days ahead, or a glass of wine after a long day spent exploring. Shop, pub and restaurant 580 yards.
Holmefield Cottage can be booked together with Holmefield Coach House (UK4039) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

A cable car can be taken to the top from Matlock Bath railway station.

Between Matlock and Matlock Bath is High Tor, a broad limestone cliff rising some 400 feet above the River Derwent. Around High Tor there is a network of paths suitable for exploring the area and from which to experience the spectacular views. In the grounds below there are refreshment facilities, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks and two caverns.

To the south is the market town of Wirksworth, which is one of the oldest towns in the area, with a central marketplace in which markets have been held since the reign of Edward I. Here visitors will find many fine old buildings of great character including a magnificent Jacobean house known as Babington House. The town is now a small bustling and thriving local centre with a selection of shops and pubs.
