Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

On the ground floor, you’ll find the living room which is a cosy place to unwind together and enjoy an evening of entertainment in front of the TV which has Freeview and a DVD player. In warm weather, open up the French doors and step out to the private garden and patio where you can cook up a barbecue feast for a leisurely lunch. You’ll find it difficult to tear your eyes away from the breath taking views of the Derbyshire countryside.

There’s a separate kitchen/dining room with a modern kitchen area featuring a stylish granite worktop and stone flag flooring, an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, an American-style fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. When it’s time to eat, enjoy your meals all together at the dining table that seats up to eight. There’s also a washing machine and tumble dryer housed in the utility area.

One of the bedrooms is also located on the ground floor and it has a double bed and an en-suite with a shower cubicle and a WC. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms: one with a king-size bed and an en-suite with a bath, shower cubicle and WC, the other with three single beds. There’s also a luxurious family bathroom with a shower cubicle, WC and a free-standing Victorian bath that’s perfect for soothing aching muscles after a day out walking.

There is a lockbox where you can access the key to the property for a self-check-in, however the owners live nearby and are available to offer assistance during your stay.

Location of 'Curlew Cottage


The neighbourhood

The cottage is located in the peaceful hillside village of Kirk Ireton in the stunning Derbyshire countryside, with several good country pubs to be found within a few miles.

If you like gentle outdoor pursuits you are in the right place and just a short walk from the cottage is Carsington Water. This reservoir and nature reserve has a visitor centre, a picnic area, a playground and lots of activities to try. Families might like the 1-mile stroll to Stones Island where there are lovely views across the water, or for a longer hike take the route that passes through the villages of Carsington and Hopton. You can also hire bikes or book water sports including rowing, canoeing, windsurfing and kayaking. Carsington Water is also a good spot for trout fishing which is available from March to November.
