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. Wifi, television and dvd player available now. I believe this is a great place to make time for yourself, friends and family, a place to relax, a place for romance. 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 quite private and great for al fresco dining and a dog.

The cottage 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 is very pictoresque (featured in the television series Peak Practice as the village of Cardale) and 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 15 minute drive from Matlock Bath with restaurants, (esp Fish and Chips), Tearooms, Musea, Gullivers Kingdom, the Heights of Abraham and outlet shopping centre.

The peak district and historical sights like Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall, Keddleston Hall, Haddon Hall and many more are all well less than 1 hour drive away. Even Alton Towers is only about 1 hour drive.

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 Crich

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.

We had a lovely time staying here . It was cosy, comfortable and warm . Our dog loved sleeping by the fire . We had lots of lovely walks . The cottage provided everything we needed for a cosy base for Peak District adventures , the highlights being Thorpe Cloud Hill at Dovedale and an amazing caving trip .

Thanks for a lovely holiday!

Very rustic, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay in this lovely cottage. It's full of old fashioned charm. Nice modern bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Great wee enclosed garden for my dogs, and great walks for them across the road. Crich and the cottage are a great base for exploring the Peak District.

Beautiful character cottage. Clean and bright and lovely garden. Great base to roam Derbyshire :)

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice place to stay. Didn't know what to expect but - 10 mins walk from the village centre, 3 mins walk from the nearest pub, 3 mins walk to Tramcar museum (excellent!), 10 mins drive to Matlock Bath (what a surprise!). Clean and kitchen leads into south facing garden. Great place for dogs - a big meadow (where dogs can be off lead) with great views about 3 mins walk from the cottage.

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.
