Description

This wonderful holiday cottage, situated in the Peak District National Park, is hidden in the pretty village of Birchover. Part of what was once originally a chapel dating back to 1853, Nine Ladies has been tastefully renovated throughout, whilst maintaining its character and charm. The upside-down designed property has an open plan living room and kitchen upstairs, whilst downstairs, there are three bedrooms with two bathrooms.
Excellent walks are on your doorstep, including the Nine Ladies stone circle walk, and it lies within a few miles of the Tissington and High Peak walking/cycling trails, plus the Limestone Way. Just 1 mile away, is the pretty village of Winster, famous for its morris dancers, wakes festivities (every June) and annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race. Nine Ladies is perfect for guests seeking a village location within easy reach of some of Derbyshire’s most famous attractions. Don’t miss the spectacular Chatsworth House, and the market town of Bakewell, which is a ten-minute drive away, home to a fine selection of shops, cafés and pubs, along with the famous Bakewell Pudding. All in all, this is a delightful holiday retreat any time of the year. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

Downriver lies Matlock Bath. This historic village is set in a steep-sided limestone gorge with whitewashed cottages perched along the hill side. Nearer the river a more `touristy' atmosphere prevails with its many attractions from museums and cafes to souvenir shops. On the western side of the gorge is the Heights of Abraham which is popular with visitors due to its superb views and amenities, including restaurant, picnic area and caf�. 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.

Fly fishing is available from the bank and from boats that can be hired from the Fishing Lodge. There is plentiful car parking and for young children there is a children's playground.

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.
