Spring Cottage is tucked away in a beautiful, rural part of the Derbyshire Dales. The views are special and guests are welcome to sit in and walk around the garden. There are fabulous circular walks, from our door, varying from 30 mins - all day. We (Ali and John) work in agriculture, have a small menagerie and have many countryside interests. We will be pleased to chat with guests or to give privacy. We can collect guests from nearby stations and assist in other ways by prior arrangement.

The space
The old part of Spring Cottage dates from the 18th Century. In addition to the bedroom and adjacent shower room (in the old bit), guests can use our large sitting room (new bit) as their breakfast room and somewhere to relax or work on the laptop. There is a cosy log burner which we are happy to light on cooler evenings.
There is a mini fridge, which will be stocked with milk, bread, water (from our own spring supply) and other DIY breakfast foods, as arranged prior to your stay. As well as hot drink and toast making facilities in this room, there is a hospitality tray in the bedroom.
For warmer weather there is a sitting out area and our guests will always be welcome in the garden ; especially if you bring your gardening gloves! There is parking right outside the cottage.
If staying with us in Spring there will be a few lambs to see in addition to our poultry, cats and dog.

Whatstandwell, England, United Kingdom

The view from our garden across the Derwent Valley to Crich Stand, the Sherwood Foresters memorial, is fabulous. All of the cottage windows look out onto the garden, fields and woodlands. It is a lovely location within the Derbyshire Dales, ideal as a base for walkers and cyclists and for people who wish to have privacy and peace. Just 5 minutes in the car (or a 30-40 mins walk over the fields) gets you to The Family Tree, a great place to have a cooked breakfast, lunch or tea and cake.
The character-filled small market town of Wirksworth is within 10 minutes drive. Belper (High Street of the Year 2020), Matlock, Matlock Bath, Ashbourne and Bakewell are also within easy reach for eating out, nice shopping, antiques and local history museums.
Crich Tramway Museum and the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Sites are close by and Derbyshire offers a wealth of fabulous walking, landscapes, history and beautiful gardens.
Guests are advised to check the opening dates and times of special places, they may wish to visit, before their stay.

I love my home County of Derbyshire and enjoy travelling around it with my work. My hobbies include: gardening, making things for the garden out of hazel/willow and spinning and weaving with our sheep's wool.
