About this listing
Set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside in the village of Crich, this cosy 200 year old cottage, with its 2 up 2 down design, is an ideal base for walking, climbing, cycling, exploring and sightseeing, or simply getting away from it all.
The cottage is around 200 years old and is adjacent to the owners’ own cottage.
The cosy cottage, a 2 up 2 down designed for 1 or 2 persons has been modernised to a high standard and is centrally heated throughout. It is in a very quiet location but only 50 yards from the village market place with many local amenities including pubs serving food, a post office, and our own unique artisan bakery, cafe and deli, called 'the loaf'.
It’s quirky in that the living room and kitchen are upstairs whilst the bedroom and shower room are on the ground floor. This is to make the best of the view towards the nearby village of Fritchley.
The living room is furnished with a sofa, a table and chairs, a TV/DVD, a Radio/CD player and has a feature fireplace. There is a selection of games, books, DVDs and tourist literature provided. The kitchen has a gas cooker and fridge with freezer compartment. There is a queen size double bed with storage drawers, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The bathroom has a self contained shower, sink and loo.
Guests can share use of the private garden and patio which has its own brook running through it. Off road parking is available on the private driveway.
Interaction with guests

Other things to note
We provide all linen, utensils, crockery and some essential supplies (you won’t need your salt and pepper!). There is also lockable storage for bikes and any other leisure items (climbing ropes etc.).
There is a no smoking policy in the cottage for the comfort of all our guests. Unfortunately pets cannot be accommodated.

I'm originally from Leek in Staffordshire and moved to Derbyshire from London in 2005, having had a career at the BBC. I now run the loaf bakery, cafe and deli in Crich with my partner Andrew.
I love independent travel so hope that Halcyon Cottage reflects that in making sure others have a great stay in Derbyshire.
