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.

    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.

    This was our second stay at Lamp Cottage and yes we have booked again for next year. We absolutely love this cottage, there is so much space for everyone to spread out yet be together. Everything is pristine and very well equipped. The beds are so comfy and we all had too many "lie ins" after all the fresh air and soft pillows. Apart from the stylishly decorated interior, the locations and views of this property are amazing. There are walks on your door step and we highly recommend the local butchers on the main road. If you look on their website there is a list of all the products they offer and they will take an order over the phone prior to your stay (handy if you plan on having a BBQ they do delicious burgers and sausages etc). We love the chip shop in Crich Village they are so friendly and the Nisa shop is well stocked and reasonable too. We ate out at the Jug and Glass in Lea and ThenTavern in Tansley highly recommend both places. Chatsworth was as stunning as ever and we enjoyed our usual haunts (Bakewell, Cromford, Crich Tram Museum, Matlock). If you have time do recommend visiting Buxton the journey over there itself was spectacular taking in the rolling hills and you can see for miles (take the A5012 then A515 via Cromford). The Pavillion Gardens were lovely and had a nice meal there too. There is so much to do in Derbyshire we look forward to returning in May 2018. Thank you The Rogers and Jones Family Kettering/Mansfield

    Overall we had a wonderful week at Lamp Cottage. Clean, spacious, well equipped, beautiful location. A few niggles regarding the house (not enough lamps (odd considering the name!), blown bulbs on arrival, no kindling, faulty plugs, taps and loo roll holders. Nothing major and certainly nothing to detract from a lovely house and fabulous holiday. Lots to see and do in the area with friendly local people.
