About this Cottage

This attractive detached barn has been thoughtfully converted retaining many beams and is situated in the grounds of the owner’s home in the delightful rural hamlet of Alton, just 7 miles from Matlock. The original farmhouse is early 19th century and was historically both a working farm and a pub. Featured as one of the doctors’ houses in Peak Practice, this makes an excellent base for visiting all the Peak District has to offer, with Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall close at hand, as well as Crich Tram Village and Hardwick Hall. The renowned show caves at Castleton are an easy drive, whilst Carsington Water for fly fishing and water sports is within 15 miles. Chesterfield with its crooked church spire is just 6 miles. There is excellent walking from the door and the area boasts stunning countryside. Horse riding and golf nearby. Shop 1 mile.
