Dating back to the mid-1800s, this pretty, terraced, stone-built, former rail workers cottage provides beautifully presented and comfortable holiday accommodation, which is well located for families or couples who want to explore all that Derbyshire’s Peak District has to offer. The village of Rowsley is conveniently situated between two of the Peak District’s most popular market towns, Bakewell, 3 miles, and Matlock, 5 miles, as well as being on the doorstep of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, both 2 miles away. Rowsley provides an excellent base for walking, with paths leading to Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and up the hillside towards the moors of Stanton and Fallinge. The Derwent Valley Heritage Trail runs through the village, which has two small art galleries and a couple of good pubs. The Peak Village factory outlet and Caudwell’s Mill, with cafe and craft centre, are both within easy reach of the cottage. Places of interest further afield include Crich Tramway Village, Manifold Valley, Castleton, Dovedale and Buxton. Activities available locally include cycling and fishing. In summer, steam trains operate to Matlock via Darley Dale. Shop 50 yards, pub ¾ mile, restaurant 2 miles.

Great location to visit places of interest, road outside was a bit noisy at peak travel times. Lovely views, comfy furnishings and well equipped kitchen. A few changes to the rear outside space would help. Lovely big bath. Great area to walk around. Natural surroundings.

The cottage was clean but there was only one pan and no baking tray , we could not sit outside as the small back yard had bins and the table and chairs were old and very hard, the area was full of weeds and dirty

Dove Cottage was a perfect find for us. Everything was clean and tidy. A perfect place to venture out into the Peak District. If you are going to visit Chatsworth house it is only a couple of miles away. I scored it a 6 on "local Amenities because it is a small village and everything closes early. Overall we had a brilliant stay.
