    About this property

    A tastefully renovated, secret haven tucked away on the edge of the Peak District within easy reach of many attractions.
    Tucked away in the beautiful village of Bonsall, this perfect ‘chocolate box’ hideaway has been expertly turned into a secret haven by the owner’s keen eye for interior design and renovation. Exquisite soft furnishings and furniture, along with a cosy woodburner, add to the charm and character. S45446 sits detached, directly on the Limestone Way where you can experience charming fields, dales, caves, cliffs, gorges, woodland and riverside paths along the route. Bonsall is a village of 1000 inhabitants in the Derbyshire Dales on the edge of the Peak District and has a long history of lead mining, possibly going back to Roman times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bonsall inhabitants have been involved in the textile industry, pre- and post-Arkwright. In early modern times it was on an important salters’ route, and was a staging post on the road between Derby and Manchester. Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park and just a short drive from the famous Arkwright Mills at Cromford, S45446 makes an ideal base from which to explore the region’s attractions. Matlock and Bakewell are close by, as is the picturesque village of Crich with its fantastic Tramway Village, while majestic Chatsworth House and Carsington Reservoir, with its sailing centre, are well worth a visit. After a day exploring, sit in the beautiful garden with a glass in hand as the sun sets over the tree-lined fields. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
    . Living room with wood-burning stove. Dining room with quarry-tiled floor. Galley-style kitchen with quarry-tiled floor. First floor: Two double bedrooms, one with 5ft bed. Shower room with double cubicle and toilet.

    "We loved this cottage. Warm, comfortable, cosy, well designed and so clean. We would certainly stay there again."
    Desrea ‐ 3 Nov 2018
    "Beautiful cottage, lovely location, thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. Alot of history in area including Masson Mill sewing factory and bakewell. Would return to see more"
    Louise ‐ 30 Oct 2018
    "Absolutely amazing stay, we loved everything about this place!"
    Jes ‐ 22 Oct 2018
    "Beautiful cottage, the little extra touches by the owner made it very homely. The Kings Head across the road served very nice food. We hope to return."

    "We loved S45446. So pretty and with a lovely garden for sitting out in. The village was lovely- great for walks and there were 2 pubs, a tea room (which we tested twice on our weekend) and a village shop & deli all within an easy walk. The Cottage owner was very welcoming and gave good instructions and she even allowed us a late check out on Sunday which was much appreciated.The Cottage was beautifully decorated, spotless, was very well equipped with everything you might want. I thoroughly enjoyed the lovely shower and we even made use of the cosy log burner one night. The only minor negatives were: there's only one toilet (but we knew this when we booked) & the garden isn't totally private as you get a number of walkers going past up the trail- not a big problem for us but may be a concern for others.All in all, we had a lovely, relaxing, rare weekend away from the kids. We were blessed with the best weather on Saturday so we did so much walking around the village that day that I ached the next. I thoroughly enjoyed my Sunday lie-in (the bed was so comfy; it had lovely squashy pillows and duvet!)If you a couple of two couples sharing, then this is the perfect cottage for a lovely break in the Derbyshire Dales."

    "The moment we arrived we thought this was a fantastic cottage, very comfortable in a lovely village setting. Bonsall is a small village which has 2 pubs, a small shop and a café, which were all great. We ate in the pub literally across the road on a number of occasions and the food was great.There are also good walks on the doorstep and is only about 3 miles from Matlock, which we could walk to.This was also a great base for exploring the Peak District"

    "A lovely cottage,very clean and comfortable and with a pretty and relaxing garden. The owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome. A wonderful centre for visiting a stunning part of the country."
    Sarah ‐ 11 Sep 2018
    "Beautiful cosy cottage with lots of personal touches. Couldnt recommend highly enough."
    Paul ‐ 28 Jun 2018
    "Cottage clean and good quality furniture and fittings - however cottage rather dark inside and dull decoratively. Village not attractive and rather run down."
    Phil ‐ 9 Jun 2018
    "A delightful cottage in a peaceful setting with a very pretty garden. The owners left it spotlessly clean with welcoming,flowers and cakes!Not really suitable for anyone with slight mobility/disability problems, as you have to park a short distance away to load/unload. No bath, just a shower, but overall a very pretty place!"
    Jacqueline ‐ 29 May 2018
    "You feel welcome before you arrive due to the letter & text communications & on arrival the cottage more than exceeds expectations. Every room has been beautifully & very thoughtfully decorated with great attention to detail & a high level of comfort. The garden is stunning & the location quiet, private & peaceful. The people in the village are very welcoming & the Kings Head serves amazing food with friendly staff. The owners of the Barley Mow were fantastic & really helpful & welcoming.Overall I could not rate this venue any higher& will definitely be back."
    Julie ‐ 15 May 2018
    "Great place, clean, cozy with all modern amenities, would definitely recommend."
    Glenys ‐ 8 May 2018
    "When we arrived in the lovely quiet village of Bonsall and saw S45446 we could not believe how stunning and charming it was. The attention to detail was wonderful right down to the well equipped kitchen and lovely white robes in the bedroom. It was decorated and furnished to a high standard and the shower room was amazing.It was lovely to wake up everyday to the lovely garden and views over the countryside. Bonsall was a great base for us to visit great places. We would definitely stay again."

    "A cosy and welcoming cottage with all the facilities you could require for a home away from home stay."
    Sarah ‐ 3 Apr 2018
    "We had an excellent few days at S45446 - the cottage itself was cosy, warm & well equipped, there was a walk we could do from the front door and the village had a couple of pubs & a small little shop for essentials. A great place!"
