About the property

Cottage in Crich, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire Dales, Derbyshire, England -great walks, Pubs, local shops And The Tramway Museum

Typical Derbyshire stone cottage with cosy lounge with low beamed ceiling and coal effect gas fire. Cupboards with games, jigsaws, lego, colouring pens and books , local info and walking maps. No television. I believe this is a great place to make time for yourself, friends and family, a place to relax, a place for romance. There is Wifi, if you want to bring a laptop or tablet. The cottage has 2 generous double bedrooms, a dining kitchen and a recently renovated shower room. The kitchen opens to a good sized, fenced in, south facing back garden with patio (covered to provide shade in summer), lawn and flower beds.

It is located on the edge of Crich Village, near the stand and tramway museum.There are lots of public foot paths nearby. Lots of off lead walks for dogs.

Crich itself has everything you need within a 15 minute walk : 3 pubs, convenience store, lovely bakery /tearoom, traditional butcher, Indian restaurant, fish and chips , post office and even a hair dresser/ beauty salon!

Crich is only a 15minute drive of Matlock Bath with restaurants, (esp Fish and Chips), Tearooms, Musea, Gullivers Kingdom, the Heights of Abraham.

The peak district and historical sights like Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall, Keddleston Hall, Haddon Hall and many more are all less than 1 hour drive away.

There is information on lots of tourist attractions, local restaurants and walks available at the cottage. Even ordnance survey maps for the brave or experienced ones...

About annick sackx

Annick, has always loved the Peak District and got this cottage to get away from a busy working life.

She would now like to share it with others and hopes you will enjoy it as much here as she does!!

Why annick sackx chose Amber Valley

Bought in 2010 as a second home to get away from the pressure of work and have long walks with the dog and meet up with friends "in peace"

What makes this cottage unique

I am still in love with the cottage and the area.

The house is small but very cosy with lots of light.

I love the kitchen leading up to the private patio/ back garden and have the door open all the time, as soon as it is warm enough.

The back garden is sun drenched all day (when the sun is out).

It is an easy walk to the shops and pubs and you have lovely walks in all directions without getting in the car.

Lots of off lead walking for the dog.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Thursday to Sunday. Communication on our stay throughout from the owner/s was excellent. We had a family barbecue on the Saturday and the owner/s did all they could to be helpful on laying a few items on, e.g. barbecue eqipment.

All materials for learning about the area were available and very useful. The cottage was clean, fresh and tidy. Crich is a lovely area and we enjoyed the walks we had near or far from the cottage.

For those of you wanting television, there isn't one...however with broadband all laid on you can easily set up a tablet or laptop to see it, so it then becomes your choice.

If asked would you use the cottage again, we definitely would.

Homely, well equipped, excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over Easter 2017, having stayed previously in October 2016.

The cottage is fabulous. It is very well equipped with everything you could want, the shower is excellent and it benefits from a nicely sized garden. There are plenty of toys for the children to play with, expecially the Lego, which was a big hit.

Our children age 7 and 8, love feeding the ponies in the field opposite and adore the Tramway Museum, we visited every single day, even if just to use the adventure park.

The village has a well stocked shop and bakery and two excellent pubs, the Black SWan and the Cliff Inn, would recommend both.

The cottage is ideally placed for walks from the door. Short walk into Crich.

  • 2 of 5

Sadly the property did not meet my expectations. I booked this cottage after reading all the positive reviews. However the cottage wasn't as clean as it should have been. I have spoken to the owner direct about this.

Owner's Response: Sadly my mother passed away and I had other commitments, so somebody else gave the cottage a quick clean. I did apologise and gave some refund and the cottage was given a very thorough clean before the new guests (second time visitors!) arrived. Annick

Well placed, cosy cottage with lots of character

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in Crich on a couple of occasions now.

The cottage is s short downhill walk to the village amenities. Parking is on road, but immediately outside of the cottage.

The two bedrooms are large with views from both.

The kitchen/diner is well equipped.

The lounge is cottage style with a gas fire and central heating for chilly evenings.

There are a couple of radios and a bookcase, but no tv which wasn't a concern for us.

Very dog friendly, and plenty of local walks.

I'll definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you. It is nice to have a few "regulars" now, who obviously enjoy the cottage and the area as much as I do. :-)

Lovely traditional cottage in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very welcoming. The decor is smart and the kitchen equipment is high quality. There is also a good collection of games in the lounge and a fantastic Lego collection, just right for the children. The design of the cottage has been well thought through and overall it is like being in a home not just a holiday cottage.
