The cottage is set in the beautiful quiet historic village of Bonsall on Masson Hill, although within 25 minutes you can walk to the Heights of Abraham cable car that leads to Matlock Bath which is a popular resort, some other nearby places of interest include Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Chatsworth, Carsington water and a little further afield Alton Towers.
The village of Bonsall benefits from two pubs which both offer a range of decent ales and food, the nearest of which is literally a stone’s throw from the front door, there is a café within 5 minutes walk overlooking the local children’s park and a small deli shop.
The cottage is a lovely family holiday home which has been refurbished, maintaining many traditional features which include exposed oak beams, original stone flags too the hall and recessed window seats. The cottage benefits from gas central heating, which is supplemented by a log burner.
The accommodation comprises:
On the ground floor; entrance hall, shower room and w/c. A large lounge leads off the hall which comfortably accommodates 8 people. The kitchen has a 6 seater dining table, range cooker and fitted kitchen.
Upstairs there is one king size bedroom, one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, there is a large bathroom with double ended bath.
A further two people can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the lounge taking the maximum occupancy to eight people ( you would need to fold the bed away each day to use the living room).
From all rooms there are views of the village or the surrounding countryside, the back stairs from the kitchen lead to the rear garden which has fantastic views and the field behind often has cows grazing (please don’t feed them!). There is a table and chairs to enjoy the view from. At the front of the property there is off road parking and a small front garden with seating, further parking is available on the street.
The cottage is child friendly and also two well behaved pets would be considered if kept downstairs (there is an additional cleaning fee for pets).
