About Rachel Halley

The cottage owner is Rachel Halley, I grew up in Sheffield and spent a lot of my childhood exploring this beautiful part of the UK. I am passionate about the area, the village and I take great pride in being very hands on with the management of the cottage. I have an ongoing programme of improvements which the regular visitors love as there are always new touches whenever they return.

I look forward to welcoming you to Thimble Cottage.

Rachel Halley purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Rachel Halley chose Derbyshire Dales

We just love the area, the countryside is so beautiful, the people are so friendly and there is so much to see and do, or our guests just relax and unwind. We use the cottage as an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Having spent many years renting other people's cottages, we have learnt that home comforts are essential for a relaxing holiday. We have filled the cottage with many luxury items that we think you will love and we very much look forward to sharing our cottage with you.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is conveniently located in the heart of the village within easy strolling distance of the 3 village pubs all of which accept pets and serve good reasonably priced food.

We encourage our guests to shop locally as much as possible. There are 2 butchers in the village which double up as village stores / Post Office and sell all the essentials.

Hollands the butchers make the most delicious pies in house - both sweet and savory and we tend to stock up when we are in the village.
