About Helena Porter

I have lived in Coton-in-the-Elms very happily for 37 years. The people round here are friendly and welcoming.

I love living in the country and enjoy walks and cycling round the lanes.

Helena Porter purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Helena Porter chose South Derbyshire

The cottage needed a total makeover when we bought it, but I'm a very practical person and was a great builder's mate and project manager! Being close to our home means is so useful for looking after the house and garden and being there to meet and greet our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

On a lovely summer day the sun will shine in the garden from sunrise to sunset and it is so peaceful! At the end of the day, take your glass of wine to the top of the garden and catch the last rays of the sun and the sunset...it is lovely!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Exceptionally clean accommodation in a great location for cycling. All mod cons and welcome provisions. And bike storage. We visited Hicks Lodge for the cycling and it was brilliant. Branston Water Park and up the canal to the Marina also great. 5*. Thanks Helena we all had a great time."

Very clean and comfortable house 😊👍

  • 5 of 5

House is in a great location with off road parking and bike storage.

It's very clean and has everything you need for a family break.

It's close to Hicks Lodge mountain bike trails which was also brilliant.

Cosy, clean and functional - everything we needed for a family break!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect, just as advertised. It was well-equipped and easy to settle into. It was a lovely surprise that the beds were so comfortable and the small bedside lights in the bedroom with the two single beds were very useful for the children. The provision of a washing machine and a dishwasher made things very easy for us and the garden was nice and large. Having a couple of very nearby pubs made it easy to go out for a quick meal without it being too much of a palaver with the kids. The cottage is well-located for a range of local children's activities. Helena was very welcoming and helpful as a host. Very happy with our stay here and would definitely come again.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted that you were very happy with the cottage and enjoyed your week in South Derbyshire and the National Forest. It is an area that has a lot to offer and is relatively unfamiliar to many, but easily accessible.

very clean and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it was clean, comfortable and we had everything we needed. There were only two of us but there would be plenty of room for a family holiday and the kitchen is well stocked with plenty of crockery and utensils. The local area is very quite and pretty, It was rainy during our stay but the garden is lovely and there is garden furniture available. Helena was very welcoming and helpful and gave us plenty of suggestions of places to eat locally. Her recommendation for fish and chips was spot on. We would definitely recommend this cottage

mill House Cottage near staffordshire

  • 5 of 5

lovely weekend stay in a beautiful country cottage with all facilities including wifi.

beautiful countryside surroundings on your door step , being in the New Forest.

However with a car you can get to see and do lots more of interest, such as Drayton Manor, Tamworth Castle, Bosworth Hill Battlefield and lots lots more.

We only went for a long weekend, but could have stayed a week, with so much more to see.

We will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your excellent comments.To save confusion, please note that we are in the National Forest (not the New Forest), which takes in areas of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. The National Forest is one of the country's boldest environmental projects, transforming 200 square miles in the centre of England blending ancient woodland with new plantings to create a new national forest. We are easy to get to and yes, there are lots of things to do!
