Darley Dale, Matlock, Derbyshire, England
350 years old and once home to local lead miners, Dale View is a a real chance to escape from the stresses and strains of modern living. You can step back to a time without the telephone or internet and enjoy an original spacious beamed sitting/dining room, an open fire, peace, quiet and fabulous views - at weekends you can even catch the sound of a the old stream train running between Rowley and Matlock!

Located in the unspoilt hamlet of Wensley, Dale View is ideally situated to enjoy the best of the Peak. It is between Bakewell and Matlock, seven miles from Chatsworth House and five miles from Haddon Hall. There is great walking from the front door, through Darley Dale and beyond. Nearby, there are country pubs and restaurants. It is perfect for a 'get away from it all' relaxing break!

Although we were not traveling for leisure the cottage was a beautiful base for us. The charm of the cottage matched with its picturesque views made it a wonderful stay. Coming home every night and sitting by the fire was wonderful. I would recommend staying here if you want to visit the Peak District as there are so many beautiful...

Spent a lovely week at Dale View, very comfortable and quiet, everything we wanted in an ideal location. Big log fires, glass or two of wine and good music on the cd player. Kitchen basic but functional (don't cook big meals when on holiday!) Bed very comfy, and cottage very cosy. Every one exceptionally friendly!! Can only think of two...

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to welcoming you back. Good to hear you found the cottage cosy and the bed comfy. The leaky shower is not straight forward as it is movement in the joists that cause it - it will need the whole floor coming out! We are planning an updating of the kitchen and...

This old cottage is tucked away in a tiny village near Matlock, really cozy, private with a fantastic view. The kitchen feels a bit 'back in time', but it's all part of the charm. The water pressure is a bit low but we managed to get the shower to work. It's a great location to tour around in the Peak...

About the neighborhood
There are a host of places to visit on the local area. The unmissable Chatsworth House, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire is a short drive away. The house is magnificent and was recently used to film Pride and prejudice with Kiera Knightley. She also starred as Georgiana in the film The Duchess, wife of the fifth duke. Room after room is stunning. Visit the library, dining room, sculpture hall, bedrooms and great hall. One of the most fascinating sights is the famous violin door. The gardens are equally stunning with the famous cascade down the hillside, the Emperor fountain, waterfalls, rare trees and shrubs and the Maze. Successive Dukes have collected sculptures, which are scattered throughout the gardens to dramatic effect. Behind the house there is good walking through Stand... more
