Description

Within the historic Leahurst Estate this large, immaculate property is the perfect venue for a special gathering of friends or family.

Lamp Cottage is an immaculate stone detached holiday property set in parkland where sheep and deer roam and is located in the grounds of the historic Leahurst Estate, the former summer residence of Florence Nightingale and her family. It is approached down a private driveway through a meadow and a gate leading to a gravelled parking area. A large oak porch leads into this delightful accommodation where furnishings and fittings are of the a highest quality and spectacular unspoiled south west facing views across the Amber Valley make this the most unique of properties. The property is entered into via a large entrance hall, off which are the main reception rooms. To the rear of the hall, through double glazed doors, is the fully equipped kitchen which is open to the south facing conservatory style dining area that has some occasional seating and fold back glazed doors opening onto a large wrap around patio. A large teak table and chairs, a custom steel barbecue and a well-stocked herb garden cater for any alfresco dining requirements, in addition to sun loungers, spacious lawns and stunning views. The living room, situated at the rear with comfy seating and doors opening onto patio and lawn, features a wall-mounted wood-burning stove creating a truly relaxing atmosphere. There is a further study/TV room with board games and seating and a cloakroom. The stairs lead to the open gallery landing giving access to the bedrooms. Gardens and meadowland surround the property and there are also footpaths from the doorstep. Within a mile of the property is the World Heritage site that houses the world’s first water-powered cotton spinning factories and just under 4 miles is the delightful town of Matlock Bath boasting smart riverside cafés and bars. Slotted in between are more traditional pubs, restaurants, tea shops and ice cream parlours. Here visitors can experience a cable car ride up the dramatic face of the gorge The Heights of Abraham and admire the views of ‘Little Switzerland’ as Byron once described this area. Shop and pub ¼ mile.

    We had a great week at Lamp Cottage - a lovely pace to stay. The house is very spacious and comfortable and was spotlessly clean & well equipped, we hope to return.

    We have stayed at this accommodation four times now and have enjoyed each and every visit. We visit all the local areas when we stay and find the property spacious, clean, warm, and very comfortable. It is in a very quiet location where you can relax. On this visit we were blessed by the properties local peacock who visited each day. What a wonderful sight !! We hope to return again in the future.

    The house was a delight and a great base for us to explore this delightful area of the country we didn't know. We were fortunate with the excellent weather, but this led to the only major issue with the property. There is a lovely sized garden, mostly laid to lawn, that is full of wickedly sharp thistles. There were two children aged 4 and 6 in our party who love to run around in the garden in bare feet. This was impossible whilst we were there and was a frustration as it is such an easily solvable issue.
