Why Ralph Kirk chose Stanton

The peaceful and quaint village of Stanton-in-the-Peak is the perfect location if you want a quiet rural getaway. It's like stepping back in time a few hundred years! The Flying Childers pub is one of the best meeting spots in the area where you can enjoy real ales and food.

The magnificent Chatsworth House, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and location for films such as Pride & Prejudice, is just 15 minutes drive away where you can visit the House, Garden, Playground, Farmyard and Farm Shops or just wonder around the beautiful park.

Within a short walk is the English Heritage's Bronze Age monument - the Nine Ladies Stone Circle. And less than 5 minutes drive is Haddon Hall, a beautiful Tudor stately home where films such as Jane Eyre have been shot.

The nearby town of Bakewell is a real favourite of tourists and is home to the famous Bakewell Pudding with several shops where you can buy one to take home. There are plenty of great places to eat close by including The Druid Inn in the neighbouring village of Birchover or for fine dining, there's The Peacock at Rowsley which is also just 5 minutes away.

What makes this cottage unique

Lathkill Cottage has two beautiful gardens where you can relax and watch the world go by. It has lots of old world charm and is very well-equipped with all the modern facilities.

fantastic cottage great neighbours joined us for drinks in the beautiful garden with fantastic sunsets where we had dinner. Great landlord left us a welcome pack which was much appreciated as we were hungry when we got there.The whole area is beautiful and so quaint. Matlock great little shopping place where my friend's and I spent a fortune and Bakewell so pretty we had a carnival and England was playing on the Saturday so very busy but a great atmosphere. Chatsworth house is amazing must see. Thanks Ralph

Perfect country get away, family friendly and full of charm

  • 5 of 5

We really couldn’t fault Lathkill cottage - it was everything you could wish for in terms of country charm, but also had all the mod cons we needed for the practicalities of holidaying with children. Great reception from Ralph too, and some lovely touches like the welcome basket which had clearly been bought with a family in mind. The location was also excellent within easy reach of all the places we wanted to visit - Chatsworth House a must whatever your age! Hope to come back very soon.

What a gem! This enchanting cottage includes all that is necessary for a comfortable stay in this beautiful village, including a large shower, spacious bedrooms, charming decor throughout, lovely gardens, and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, not to mention the lovely welcome basket! Easy walk to a cozy local pub and walking paths, and hiking, biking, and access to interesting points of interest abound. Ralph is a superior host and went above and beyond to make our experience in the area exceptional. Highly recommended!

Lovely break

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this cosy cottage, nothing needed -( maybe a cheese grater ha ha! we couldn't find one not an issue at all!) Forgot to tell the owner - he would have been mortified as everything else was perfect! The lovely basket of food inc delicious bottle of red! which was enjoyed along with the stunning views from the windows! what more could anyone want! We are going back as a weekend was not long enough!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet cottage to use as a base for exploring the Peak District. This was the perfect home- we were welcomed with a delightful basket of food, the local pub served real ales and had friendly owners with a nice fire, and it was very easy to drive to nearby sites. There is a beautiful garden out front and the backyard abuts a peaceful pasture. The owner was very easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions promptly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place in this area.

Turn off the A6 Bakewell to Matlock Road onto the B5056 signposted for Ashbourne and Youlgrave. After 2 miles turn left and follow the signs for Ashbourne. After 800 yds turn left again signposted Stanton In Peak. On entering the village, Lathkill Cottage is the 3rd cottage on the left. (If you reach the village pub you have passed the cottage and need to turn around).
