• About The Smithy

    A really enchanting, detached, village holiday cottage with views to sheep-grazed, craggy hillsides and within a 2-minute stroll of a couple of village inns, both serving food. The interior is a work of love and provides a real home from home. Carsington Lake, 2 miles, offers RYA sailing, canoeing, wind surfing and fishing, and there are extensive cycle paths around the lake and on the High Peak Trail nearby. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton are all within half an hour’s drive, while Alton Towers is just 15 miles. Pony trekking, 5 miles. Wirksworth, 3 miles, has a full range of shops.

    We have just returned from a week stay in Brassington. A lovely village with two great friendly pubs that serve food and in the Miners Arms you are able to buy bread, milk etc. The cottage is in a good location for seeing all that the Peak District has to offer. The cottage itself was cosy and had everything we needed (except a washing machine!) for our stay. Sadly we had to be very careful when taking a shower/bath as a previous leak down to the living room meant we had to have a bucket catching the drips from the ceiling! The bathroom could definitely do with a revamp. On arrival there was a lovely bottle of red wine and the cottage seemed clean but could do with a good dust and some TLC. The bedrooms were all of a good size and it was lovely sitting together around the big kitchen table. The garden was enclosed and secure, perfect for our dog!

    Very comfortable cottage and nice outdoor seating area. Could do with a bit more kitchen equipment.

    A lovely place to stay in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak district. Cottage had everything you could want. Owner very helpful and obliging. We stayed two weeks in the middle of a big relocation. Could not have asked for anything more relaxing.

    A fantastic cottage in an ideal location for walking, trail riding and generally 'getting away from it all'. The village is picturesque and the host is very helpful. The only thing that the cosy cottage would benefit from is a washing machine to assist with dealing with the British weather! Would definitely stay again!
