Description

Snowdrop is a wonderful, detached, spacious property with every attention to detail paid throughout. There are four light and airy bedrooms along with a spacious well-equipped kitchen and separate dining area to enjoy. The beautiful living room has large leather sofas and wooden floors along with large, south facing windows letting the light flood through. From the living room you can wander into the delightful garden where you will find a patio area with seating and views afar to enjoy whilst relaxing after a hard days exploration.

Snowdrop is the perfect base from which to enjoy the Peak District National Park and a 5-minute walk will take you into the centre of the lovely little village of Crich, with an artisan bakery, butchers, restaurants, pubs and village post office. You will discover a plethora of walks around the village which is home to the National Tramway Museum. A stroll up the valley to the memorial offers the most wonderful views of the Derbyshire Dales and Matlock.

Matlock is 7 miles away and provides guests with a host of things to do with an array of quirky shops, antiques, pubs, coffee shops and much more. Why not take a cable car ride to the Heights of Abraham, with its magnificent views of the gorge? A great place for all the family with its show caves, nature trail, water gardens and owl maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak cycle trail, whilst to the north you will find the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park and Haddon Hall, with Carsington Water offering fantastic watersports to be enjoyed all year round!

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.

Carsington Water is ahuge draw for outdoor enthusiastswith outdoor activities including walking, cycling, fly fishing, birdwatching, sailing, canoeing, and windsurfing all available. Situated in Asbourne and within easy reach of the Peak Districtit has a sailing club next door to the Visitor Centre and cycle hire. 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.
