Pillar Box Cottage nestles in the grounds of the owner’s home and is surrounded by the hills of Derbyshire.  The property is a stunning Grade II listed barn, converted in 2008.  It has an elevated position close to the town of Matlock which is within 5 miles of the Peak District National Park.  It is situated in the owner’s courtyard and has been tastefully decorated to a high standard yet still retains the original beams.  The cottage is close to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the Spa town of Buxton, the picturesque market town of Bakewell is only 8 miles away.

About the local area

The ’High Peak Trail’ goes from the nearby village of Cromford and is ideal for walking or cycling on, this extends to over 23 miles when linked to the ’Tissington Trail’ the latter ending/starting in the market town of Ashbourne.  For those whose passion is being either beside or on water there is Carsington Water with its visitor & activity centres.  The Crich Tramway Museum is also nearby.
The village of Cromford mentioned earlier has ’World Heritage Site’ listing.  The Sir Richard Arkwright Mills are a great place to visit and the newer mill now supports a large retail complex and mill museum.
The village of Matlock Bath (2 miles away) is a Mecca for motorcycle enthusiasts.  During the Victorian era Matlock Bath was known as ’Little Switzerland’ and since the mid 1980’s it has had a superb ’Cable Car’ system, this saves all of the leg work and raises the visitor high above the Derwent Valley, also in Matlock Bath is Gullivers Kingdom theme park which makes a great day out for all ages.
