Description

Standing in the village of Darley Bridge, Stag View has been attractively and very comfortably furnished throughout, providing designer-style accommodation for a large family or group of friends wishing to explore this stunning countryside. This semi-detached cottage has a large living room with an open fire to cosy up in front of, and a fully equipped kitchen to create that special evening meal. The light filled dining conservatory opens out onto a superb terraced area with seating for all. Each of the bedrooms have been tastefully decorated with every detail being thought of, offering plenty of flexibility for your sleeping arrangements. The adjoining countryside has stunning views across the Derwent Valley.
Stag View is ideally situated just 500 yards from the village pubs, and 200 yards from the river where fishing can be enjoyed. Discover the popular Peak District, market town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, which 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, the Matlocks 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 its showcaves, nature trail, water gardens and 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. The lovely town of Bakewell and the historic Chatsworth House and park are just a short drive away, making this delightful house the perfect holiday base at any time of the year. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 500 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.

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.
