“Superb Accommodation in Stunning Surroundings”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a beautiful apartment, spacious, airy and exceedingly comfortable. It is furnished to a high standard and the beds are very comfortable indeed. The kitchen is very well equipped with first class appliances and equipment.

Sainsbury will deliver to the apartment, which we found of huge help as it meant we were able to stock up for the week (the fridge and freezer are of a very good size) and so not have to shop whilst on holiday.

There is parking outside Litton Mill, with a 2nd space in the underground car park, a lift takes you from the car park to inside the building itself. The River Wye runs alongside the apartment, the sound of the water is very relaxing. Litton Mill is in a valley below the Monsal Trail, which is easily reached (a bit of a climb but not too strenuous) by walking to River Cottage (which you pass on the way in to Litton Mill) turning a sharp left at River Cottage and crossing a small footbridge, then following the path up to the Trail. The Trail offers 8.5 miles of level and even walking/cycling, suitable for all ages and abilities. The views alongside and off the Trail are beautiful.

We visited Chatsworth House, would recommend buying the audio guide which adds to the enjoyment of this stunning stately home. Eating in the Chatsworth Farm Shop Restaurant was a delight and also costs approximately 50% less than if you eat in the restaurant next to the House itself. The Farm Shop also stocks a wonderful array of local yummy goodies to buy. Visiting Chatsworth and the beauiful gardens there takes about a day to make the most of it all.

The Tramway Museum at Crich is well worth a visit, you need about half a day.

We also visited Cromford Mills, with its art and craft shops and a delightful restaurant.

The Denby Outlet Store in Derby is also well worth a visit with prices about 50% discounted.

The scenery in the area is just stunning, make sure you take enough batteries for your camera!

Buxton, Tideswell and Matlock Bath are all worth a visit.

We noticed on Trip Advisor that the bath towels are of the small variety, so took our own. It's also worth packing a tea towel (there is a dish washer) for drying up small amounts. There is a hair dryer supplied in the apartment. The apartment has a huge tv in the living room, so it's worth packing some of your favourite dvd's to relax to after a day's walking/sight seeing. We didn't use any of the local pubs, so can't comment on them.

If you visit Tideswell the local store sells freshly made Fidgety Pie (a local speciality) well worth trying! Can recommend their Tidza pies too, a local take on a Bakewell Tart. The bookshop in Tideswell is amazing and worth visiting just to see how the books are stored!

Local roads are very good, some of the smaller ones naturally a little winding; we had no difficulty finding Litton Mill from the owner's instructions.

We had a wonderful week and would love to return to Litton Mill again.
