About samantha Maye

This property is our second/holiday home. We have visited Derbyshire many times over the years and love it so much we decided to invest in our own property in the area. We have furnished the cottage in a comfortable and homely manner as it is not just a holiday let it is our much loved holiday home.

samantha Maye purchased this cottage in 2011

Why samantha Maye chose Derbyshire

We love the views,the peace and quiet and the lovely countryside walks. The village of Milford has a lovely community feel and is within easy reach of Belper and Derby for shopping trips. Carsington water, Matlock, Dovedale and Ashbourne are a short drive away making this area an ideal base for visiting many of the beautiful places within the peak district.

What makes this cottage unique

The views from the cottage over the Derwent valley are stunning in both winter and summer.

A perfect little cottage. We only travelled from Nottingham but it was just what we needed, relaxing, cosy and quiet. The cottage is very clean and tidy, modern but with that cottage feel.

Would love to come back one day.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is small but perfectly formed and finished to a super high standard. It's the perfect cosy getaway in winter with the real wood burner. We visited near Christmas and there was a tree and decorations up which was a lovely touch.

2 friends and I stayed at the cottage for two nights and it was the perfect size and in a lovely quiet location.

Would definitely recommend and will hopefully be back soon for a second visit!

Our second stay in this beautiful, romantic, cosy cottage. Both quaint and quirky, the cottage is finished to a high standard with original features and gorgeous, contemporary extras that combine perfectly. Ideally located, we visited Bakewell, Matlock, Belper and Ashbourne for a spot of shopping, Chatsworth House, and enjoyed an invigorating walk around Carsington Water. The owner is both friendly and professional, handling our booking efficiently, providing full details before arriving and ensuring we enjoyed our stay. We will certainly be returning for our third visit.
