Description

This charming detached holiday cottage dates back to the 1600s, and is set in the heart of the Peak District village of Bonsall. The property has been carefully furnished and co-ordinated throughout with a well-equipped kitchen, although guests may want to take advantage of some of the great places to eat including the two traditional village pubs within walking distance or in Cromford and Matlock just a short drive away. Take a step out to the rear garden, which boasts three tiers, and enjoy the wonderful views. There is also a summer house and patio area, which is perfect for guests who want to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in the sunshine.
The traditional conservation village of Bonsall is situated in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, 4 miles from Matlock. Named in the Domesday Book, with a history dating back to Roman times, this former lead mining and textile producing village is renowned for the World Hen Racing Championship’s held on the first Saturday in August.
This part of Derbyshire has a rich heritage, with nearby Cromford being home to Arkwright Mills and Crich, playing host to Crich Tramway Village. Matlock Bath is just a short drive away and is the base for the cable car leading to the Heights of Abraham, a 60-acre hilltop country park. Walkers and mountain bikers will delight in the magnificent trails that abound in this part of the Peak District, whilst watersport enthusiasts are well-served by Carsington Water, which is just 7 miles away. Poppy Cottage is a great place to enjoy everything that the Peak District has to offer right from your doorstep! Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

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.
