Description

Turpin’s Cottage overlooks a wooded dell, and adjoins a play field, Belper is close by and Bakewell a short drive.

This imposing 19th century building was originally the coach house and stables for the nearby ‘Owl Coaching Inn’ (reputedly a haunt of highwayman Dick Turpin), that’s now a farm some 2 miles from the historic Derwent Valley mill town of Belper. The building has been most sympathetically converted and retains hand-cut lintels, vaulted coach-ways on the exterior, and superb barrel-vaulted ceilings, all emphasise the historical importance of this Grade II-listed structure. The original arched coach entrances now have French windows that open onto flag stone terraced areas. Turpin’s Cottage, in the grounds of the farm with another property, overlooks a wooded dell, and adjoins a 2-acre paddock and a play field with ample parking. Belper’s formal river gardens, visitor centre, and historical mills, now a World Heritage site, are within 2 miles. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Matlock and Matlock Bath, and the popular market town of Bakewell, are all a short drive away. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

    Fantastic cottage for a big group of people. Cottage is very close to the main road but the garden at the bottom of the steps makes up for it.

    Very enjoyable place to stay. Previous comments on crockery, basic nessesatys etc have all been sorted out. Good value for money for a large group.

    Brilliant property for a large group of friends or families staying together. The only reason that I haven't given the property full marks is because the kitchen really needs a bit of a re-vamp. When we arrived, there was a cupboard door practically hanging off its hinges and a drawer that was broken. Also, the fridge door shelving has seen better days. The cooker hoods also need servicing as they weren't up to the job. However, all in all a lovely property and we all hope to go back next year.

    A fantastic house for a large family/friends get together. Reasonably priced when we stayed in February, the trip was hassle-free and we had everything we needed. The only suggestion for improvement we had was that it could be made clearer that you need to take your own towels and it would be nice to be provided with enough dishwasher tablets, etc., for the whole stay.

    The cottage suited our needs very well apart from the kitchen. The crockery is very chipped and even though there is plenty of equipment it is rather well used and some were rather dirty. It would be good to provide a few more basic needs. When we arrived there wasn't even 1 sheet of toilet paper. Good job no one was desperate. On the plus size the house is a fantastic size and all 20 of us could congregate in the lounge comfortably. Would not hesitate to go back but would take my own crockery, cutlery and saucepans.

    Cottage was just right for us but bearing in mind there were 11 adults and 5 youngsters using worn out frying pans was very difficult at breakfast time. A couple of the kitchen drawers need attention and several light bulbs need replacing as no spares available. It would also be helpful to have an information pack available that includes local facilities, doctors, dentists, nearest supermarkets etc, and easier instructions regarding the hot water and heating system. Overall we had a great time and the pool table was an added bonus.

    Overall a great property for large groups. Nice bedrooms and living space. Only slight downside was that nothing was provided, no washing up liquid or bin bags or anything like that which would have been helpful.

    Great accommodation for a family reunion. Beautiful old building with lovely grounds. Good heating (important for old buildings!). And comes with a pool table! My only complaint would be the mattress I slept on, which reminded me of my time as a student!

    Lovely place, will definately be going back. Photos do not do it justice. The place is lovely and so big. Few cobwebs etc but I thought that added to the place, everything else was all clean and tidy. Just could do with a bit of upkeep regarding things like lightbulbs and checking things like that.
