About this property
Dating back to the mid-1800s, this pretty, terraced, stone-built, former rail workers cottage provides beautifully presented and comfortable holiday accommodation, which is well located for families or couples who want to explore all that Derbyshire’s Peak District has to offer. The village of Rowsley is conveniently situated between two of the Peak District’s most popular market towns, Bakewell, 3 miles, and Matlock, 5 miles, as well as being on the doorstep of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, both 2 miles away. Rowsley provides an excellent base for walking, with paths leading to Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and up the hillside towards the moors of Stanton and Fallinge. The Derwent Valley Heritage Trail runs through the village, which has two small art galleries and a couple of good pubs. The Peak Village factory outlet and Caudwell’s Mill, with cafe and craft centre, are both within easy reach of the cottage. Places of interest further afield include Crich Tramway Village, Manifold Valley, Castleton, Dovedale and Buxton. Activities available locally include cycling and fishing. In summer, steam trains operate to Matlock via Darley Dale. Shop 50 yards, pub ¾ mile, restaurant 2 miles.
