Description

Walk through the doors of Witchnest, where you will be met by this lovingly furnished 18th-century property, which boasts original open beams and a cosy open fire. Every thought has gone into the beautiful décor, with unique antique furniture, co-coordinating soft furnishings and luxurious drapes. The bespoke kitchen offers all the contemporary facilities needed, with the center piece being a large range to cook upon. Each bedroom has been designed with draped beds and comfort in mind, and there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy a sound night’s sleep in the comfortable beds.
Full of charm and character, the cottage is situated on the old ’Clatterway’, which leads into Bonsall, a quiet village in the hills between Matlock and Wirksworth. With the most stunning picturesque surroundings, two great pubs and a cosy coffee shop and deli, this pretty village is one you’ll love to relax and spend time in.
Bonsall is a village which is nestled in the Derbyshire Dales, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, and has a long history of lead mining, which is thought to go back to Roman times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bonsall’s residents have been involved in the textile industry, pre and post Arkwright. In the early modern times it was on an important salters’ route, and was a staging post on the road between Derby and Manchester. It is just a short drive away from the famous Arkwright Mills at Cromford, with Matlock and Bakewell also close by. The picturesque village of Crich with its fantastic Tramway Village and Chatsworth House and Carsington Reservoir, with its sailing centre, watersports and cycle route are all just a short drive away.
Why not climb up on to Bonsall Moor and marvel at the views over the Derwent Valley. Stride out across the tops of the ’Peaks’ on the Limestone Way. Ashbourne is great for guests who love county town shops. Wirksworth’s Heritage Centre and trail is definitely worth a visit and Matlock Bath’s cable cars are breathtaking. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
