About the Owner

I'm a local GP and have lived next door to my property Black Swan Cottage for 10 years. I was delighted to purchase and restore it in 2007. Close proximity means I can look after it. I'm also available for local info or if there's a problem. My four children are growing up in this lovely village and it's a privilege to share it with others.

From the Owner

We discovered Derbyshire for the first time when my husband got a job here 10 years ago. Since then I have begun to work as a rural GP and have never stopped thinking what a special place it is.Come and see the wild flowers in May and you'll understand why.

From the Owner

This village lies in the middle of beautiful countryside. Having lived here for 10 years I am still finding new walks and runs from my back door. Now I cycle I am being punished by the hills but get to see even more villages tucked away.It is an endless playground.However nothing beats the ability to combine this with being able to stroll to our many pubs within walking distance, or get some delicious bacon from the village shop.There are more remote villages, but this has a wonderful community and accessibility.
