Know It All

Hit the Spot
In the Derbyshire village of Kirk Ireton, near Belper.

Come here for...
• Peak District peace and seclusion. • Soaking in a fabulous outdoor hot tub and bathtub for two. • No staff to intrude but no need to lift a finger!

There's a large hot tub on the patio, a cabin for drying off, a terrace with table, chairs and barbecue and a fully equipped kitchen. A smaller, second lounge (The Snug) can be turned into an additional ensuite bedroom for a child.

Good to know
Love a full English but hate cooking? Head off to Dannah Farm for (ten minutes away) for a full farmhouse breakfast.


One master bedroom.

Special features
You'll find oak beams and a six-foot, hand crafted oak bed. The fabulous bathroom has a double soaking tub and power shower, fluffy bathrobes and indulgent toiletries.

Pillow talk
We loved the Egyptian cotton bedding and views towards the village.

Eat & Drink

Dining In
Heather Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, though you can always head out for eats. You'll find numerous local independent butchers in the area if you're after steaks for the barbie.

A hearty full English breakfast is served at the owners' nearby farmhouse  until 9.30am (10am on weekends) if you don't fancy rustling up brekkie yourselves.

Room service
No, but the owners provide details of some favourite places for ordering a takeaway.


See & Do
Derbyshire is a year round destination brimming with lovely scenery, stately homes such as Chatsworth and appealing towns like Bakewell, Castleton and Matlock. There are plenty of scenic walking trails, so do take some decent walking shoes (or wellies) for outdoor pursuits.

If you're planning some home cooking, farmers' markets are a great source of local produce, home-grown veggies locally reared meat and free range eggs. Regular markets are held at Shottle, Belper and Matlock – your hosts will be happy to provide details.

Diary Dates
Sample the best in local produce at the Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair in Hardwick Hall.

Enjoy a night of opera, concerts and chamber music at the Buxton Festival.
