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.

    Fantastic family holiday to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday at Lamp Cottage. Nobody wanted to leave & we would definitely stay here again, Charlie my 9 year nephew especially loved having his own little TV room downstairs which became his snug. Loved waking up to views of the countryside complete with sheep & deer's. Fantastic little shop at the top of the drive, very compact but full of tasty home made goodies if you fancy a BBQ or eating in :O)

    We enjoyed a wonderful stay over Christmas week in Lamp Cottage. It's a beautifully furnished, luxury cottage - every bit as good as the catalogue photos show. The cottage is well located, with easy access to shops, family activities and local attractions. The dishwasher broke down during our stay but the landlord was lovely and responded quickly to ensure there was an immediate replacement in situ for Christmas Day as we had family visiting, with 12 around the table on Christmas Day. We loved it and hope to come back again next year!

    Lamp Cottage is a beautiful property and extremely well equipped with lots of space for my family of 6 adults and 2 young children. Your website states that there is a pub within 1/4 mile, but it actually closed 2 years ago & the nearest is 30 mins walk (2-3 miles away).The main problem we had was with feathers and allergies. Apart from 1 bedroom, all the duvets, pillows, mattress protectors and even sofas & cushions in the lounge are all feather, so I feel that there should be an allergy warning about this. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage to family & friends, unless they have a feather allergy!!
