About Mrs Gill Allsop
My husband and I bought Chestnut Farm in 1985 where we brought our two daughters up. It is a grade 11 listed building and was in need of renovation . The project took several years to complete but after all the hard work it was worth it. When our children left home we decided that Chestnut Farm was too big for the two of us so we decided to turn the barn into a one bedroom holiday let. We have now been letting The Conkers for 13 years and during that time we have met so many lovely guests from all around the world and closer to home. Many of our guest return again and again.

Why Mrs Gill Allsop chose South Wingfield
The Conkers is an ideal location if you are wanting a quite and scenic place to stay close to Derbyshires wonderful attractions. We have been here for 33yrs and still enjoy every aspect of the area as much as we did when we first moved here. We are sure you will too.
What makes this Apartment unique
Here at The Conkers you are surrounded by beautiful countryside. There's the White Hart Inn that serves good food only a 2 minute walk along the lane and you don't even have to move your car!. I am in the interiors business, therefore, The Conkers is furnished to a very high standard to create a cosy, rustic yet stylish accomodation.

Exactly what I was looking for
The cottage was very charming, right out of a book. The owners were available if we needed anything, but not at all obtrusive. There's a binder containing information on all the things that can be done in the area and how to go about it. The White Hart Inn was a 2 minute walk and is a lovely way to start and end the day, although our kitchen was ready to go if I was inclined. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking to escape the city and reset the mind.
Hi Erica thank you for your review, I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Yes The White Hart is a great watering hole for our guests with only a 2 minute walk on the lane and the food is very good. I hope you had a safe journey home.
Lovely and cosy property in good location
The property was done to a perfect standard and was completely clean and comfortable. The host was friendly and we had everything we needed. It is a lovely place, perfect for 2 people. We easily drove from the property to the main walks across the peak district. I would definitely recommend this property.
