Chatsworth holiday cottage near Bakewell and Chatsworth
Chatsworth Cottage was originally part of Chestnut House and the ground floor was the main kitchen for the house. If you look at the outer walls you will see that it has been built to link what is now Chestnut House with what is now Dove Cottage. The ground floor was built first and the different stone suggests that the second storey was added at a later date. The ground floor ceiling is also unusually high indicating that originally it was used for something other than living accommodation.
Following the path through the cottage garden you enter the cottage through French windows. The space in the open plan living area is accentuated by the high ceiling. Striking features include the impressive spiral staircase, floor to ceiling pine cupboard and contemporary logburner and slate hearth. There is a comfortable settee and leather armchair for you to settle back in. TV/DVD and hifi/radio plus books, games and information. The kitchen fittings include an electric cooker, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave plus all day to day utensils.
The spiral staircase leads to a large light bedroom with tasteful furnishings and stripped pine floor, traditional furniture and a rocking chair to enjoy the view of the garden.
There is a separate bathroom adjacent with electric shower over the bath.
Outside the lawned garden is bounded by a hedge and sheltered by a holly tree and nearby sweet chestnut offering sun or shade depending on your preference. The crimson leaves of the Virginia creeper adorning the cottage in autumn are an added pleasure! Beyond the garden is an off road parking area. One well behaved dog accepted – please see terms and conditions for pets on general booking page.
