About the property

Stainsborough Hall Cottages

We have four holiday cottages sleeping up to 20 people. The holiday cottages are set within their own private garden and surround a courtyard. Each cottage is individually styled and all were recently renovated to a high level of comfort with all modern conveniences including wifi. All bedding and towels are provided.

Stainsborough Hall is located on the shores of Carsington Water - with direct access to the footpath around the reservoir - in a stunning rural location. The gardens are full of secret passageways, hidden swings, beautiful flowers and even a stream. While the house and outbuildings are full of history and built of beautiful Derbyshire stone. The house is set back from all major roads and surrounded by fields, animals, flowers and Carsington Water - its just the perfect place to relax either for large gatherings of families and friends or for romantic get-aways for two.

In addition to the cottages there is a large games room and a private tennis court which guests can use. There are plenty of books, games and dvd's as well.

While Stainsborough Hall is in a rural location, it's not too far from anywhere. It takes 10 minutes to get into Ashbourne and Matlock, five minutes to drive to Wirksworth or 20 minutes if you want to walk over the fields. From Stainsborough Hall you can walk directly onto the pathway around Carsington Water using our back gate. So there is no need to walk or cycle on any roads. This is also the quickest route to the nearest pub which is less that one mile away.

It is possible to rent the four cottages together, individually or in combinations that suit your party size. Please contact us if you need assistance.

About Joanne Basford

Hello - we are Tim, Joanne and Lily. We moved to Stainsborough Hall earlier this year after living abroad for more than 15 years and we're delighted to be home.

We are originally from this area and have spent the last few months re-visiting many of the places we loved as children, meeting old friends and making new ones.

We've also been dedicated to renovating our cottages to be the kind of place we'd like to go on holiday. We're sure you won't be disappointed.

Why Joanne Basford chose Wirksworth

Stainsborough Hall is simply stunning. (if I do say so myself) The gardens are full of secret passageways, hidden swings, beautiful flowers and even a stream. While the house and outbuildings are full of history and built of beautiful Derbyshire stone. The house is set back from all major roads and surrounded by fields, animals, flowers and Carsington Water its just the perfect place to relax. But, at the same time its not too far from anywhere. It takes me 10 minutes to get into Ashbourne and Matlock, five minutes to drive to Wirksworth or 20 minutes if you want to walk over the fields. I couldn't imagine anywhere more beautiful now and we feel incredibly lucky to live here.

What makes this cottage unique

From Stainsborough Hall you can walk directly onto the pathway around Carsington Water using our back gate. So there is no need to walk or cycle on any roads. This is also the quickest route to the nearest pub which is less that one mile away. The gardens are also a beautiful place to relax and our private tennis court, games room and children's play area give you a lot to do in between going off to visit the hundreds of things to do in the area.

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - we chose it because it was close to our friends in Middleton and it was very convenient to visit them. We enjoyed a game of tennis and walking round the grounds but most of our time was spent off the property. The cottage was really clean and the beds comfortable. It was lovely and quiet so we slept very well. I do wish I had brought my slippers as only the bedrooms were carpeted! We had a problem with the bathroom towel rail not working and although this was not fixed during our stay (which made the bathroom chilly) the owners were extremely helpful and communicative over the problem and gave us clean dry towels and I was able to tumble dry them on another day. The kitchen is small but perfectly well equipped for basic cooking and heating meals I had pre-made. It was useful to have the use of a freezer across the yard too. The television reception was intermittent but we made use of the extensive DVD collection in the games room so it didn't matter too much. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Lovely compact cottage with great walks out the back door

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with anothe couple and we had 2 dogs between us. Cottage was perfect for our weekend stay but would be a little compact for a week with 4 adults but perfect for a couple and a child I'm sure. The lake really is a couple of minutes out the back gate of their land and a pub less than 20 mins walk away around the lake. Would recommend for sure.

Great break, comfy cottage, good hosts, good location for rest,walking and sight seeing

  • 5 of 5

Cottages overlooking the pond, fields and countryside, in a tranquil setting. Good weather made each morning a lovely start and for a very relaxing break. A short drive into Wirksworth, or walkable along the lane up hill, or a great walk across fields to Carrsington Reservoir, for walking, bike trail, restaurant and cafe. Or drive to Tissington trail for a great cycle along the old railway. Walk into Ashbourne for some history, from the top of the trail too. Lots of other walks around- we were here when the lambs were springing around , which with the cows, geese and birsdong in full flow made for an idyllic location. Eateries in Wirksworth /shops and good pubs in locality. Mistral is a good favourite. Saturday market in Wirkskworth definitely worth a visit- get there earlier if you don't want to miss out on the great bread and cakes...and good coffee.

There is a stone museum and the Star Disc (best at night) to see in Wirksworth. Matlock Bath and Masson Mills for shopping at factory prices.

Cottage was clean and comfortable. Tiled floors so you may want your slippers! Open plan kitchen had limited space for us as I did cook a lot, due to our requirements, but it would have been ample for a family eating ready made food/lighter meals...there was a microwave, dishwasher and oven/hob. All utensils we needed-although a bit short on cutlery-as we cooked 3 meals a day. Tea towels/washing up liquid/dishwasher tabs all provided. Take your own bathroom toiletries but towels provided for.

We made very good use of the table tennis, played tennis on the court briefly and the others made good use of the large dvd selection! I read my books on the terrace in the sunshine!

Host Tim was very friendly- made time to join us at the table tennis! and made our stay relaxed and enjoyable. He has a decent bottle of wine too!

We left with a view to coming back - for those times when we just need to rest. No internet to speak of and not the fastest in the game room- but I view that as a PLUS! we left significantly more rested and calmer than when we had arrived! Recommended!

Great cottage perfect for walking

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage with great walks around, we took our labrador and he had a great time running everywhere. Tim was very helpful letting us into the property before the time we should have arrived. A lovely few days away.
