About the property

Sleeps 3 with a delightful attic room with Mary Poppins-like views

Frith Cottage, is a delightful 1 bedroomed, sleeping up to 3 people cottage in Belper's Conservation Area, in the heart of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. This lovely stone built cottage, overlooking a 13th Century chapel with views across this beautiful town and the stunning Derwent Valley is located on a quiet cobbled side street and is filled with vintage charm and character with a boutique feel. Whether you arrive by car, train or bus you're just minutes away from the town centre, making this one of the most accessible places to stay in the county we believe. Centrally heated, with a woodburning stove in the character fireplace, with lovely furnishings and quality fabrics and linens, Frith Cottage is the perfect, quaint romantic bolthole for couples. A private fenced sun-trap garden with a high patio that has an amazing Mary Poppins-like view of Belper and the surrounding countryside from the top. A built in barbeque completes the perfect getaway experience. A quality daybed is located in the converted attic room, creating a gorgeous retreat within a retreat, somewhere to lose yourself whilst reading a good book on a rainy day. There is a Freesat and HDTV, DVD player and free WiFi. Belper is the beating heart of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, surrounded by stunning countryside, making it a perfect playground for walkers and explorers. The majestic Peak District is just down the road. The county's crown jewels like Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are easily accessible by car, bus or train.

There is so much to explore! Belper itself is the Winner of Britain's Best High Street 2014, and famed for its local food offerings, restaurant's, and entertainment, like the award winning Ritz Cinema, where you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst reclining on a comfy sofa for two. When you've watched your movie you can saunter just across the road to Fresh Ground, have a coffee (or more wine) and delightful supper. You'll find everything you need in the cottage to make your stay perfect, and we pride ourselves on cleanliness, attention to detail and the personal touch.

Please note: The steps to the attic room are steep. We do not recommend you use them if you have mobility issues. Stairs to the first floor are fine however, and if you can manage your stairs at home then you should be fine. Frith Cottage is not recommended for children under 5. Strictly NO SMOKING.

About The Owner

A life-long Derbyshire lad, I live with my family about 8 miles away from our 2 Belper cottages, where we own vineyards, orchards and woodlands. My fathers family have been in Belper for around 200 years, possibly more and we lived there till 2007. We still love Belper, hence our passionate commitment to providing visitors with a first class experience.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why The Owner chose Belper

We lived in the one just next door until 2007, and Frith Cottage came on the market in 2015, at a point when we were thinking of adding a new cottage to our business. We knew the owner and we knew the cottage so it was a perfect fit.

We invested in a fairly major refurbishment, opening up some internal spaces and completing the attic conversion and putting in a new patio. We love it and think you will too.

Quaint Little Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely few days staying in Frith Cottage. The cottage is very small but fully equipped with everything you could need. The bed was extremely comfortable, so much so I am now looking at buying a new bed, as I slept better in this one!

Belper is a lovely little town with independent shops alongside high street favourites. Something worth noting, if you have mobility problems or struggle with hills, then this may not be the place for you. We didn't get to use the garden as the weather was not on our side during out stay, but went up and looked at the views. Would be lovely to have a coffee on a nice morning.

Had a meal out at the Black Boy Pub in nearby Heage. Would definitely recommend this pub for a meal out.

Overall, enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

My first time staying at Frith Cottage and what a lovely cottage it is too. It has everything you could need for a great stay. I was visiting family in the area, and due to them having some building works done and Frith cottage fitted the bill and more. If you have never been to the Belper area its well worth the visit as there are lots of places to visit in and around the area. Happy holiday folks !

Car: not necessary

On the edge of the Peak District and in the beating heart of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site this cottage has everything on its doorstep. Buses and trains connect keen wakers with the Peak, museums and beautiful countryside and there are beautiful scenic walks from the cottage that overlooks historic Belper and the beautiful Derwent Valley.

Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and many other stately homes are in easy striking distance, with some easily accessible by public transport. The attractions up and down the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site are all accessible by train too.

There's almost too much to see and do!
