Briar Cottage is a great location being close to both Matlock and Chesterfield. The cottage was originally a barn and nestles in the hill side overlooking beautiful countryside. The village of Alton is right on the edge of the Peak District, with a working cattle farm at its heart. We have a small dog, Bea and a cat called Tilly, they are both very friendly and will give you a warm welcome. The cottage is full of charm and character providing an atmosphere of peace & tranquillity.

The space
You are welcome to join my daughter and I in our cosy bright cottage. The Garden room is on the ground floor and has direct access out onto the terrace and garden. There is a sofa and desk if you need to work and the double bed is a Futon Company sofa bed which is firm and very comfortable. The bathroom is on the first floor and there is also a downstairs cloakroom. We also have a single room which has the use of the family bathroom and a double room with a king sized bed and its own en suite wet room. The gardens here are beautiful and you could not ask for a more wonderful setting to relax and take some time out. Briar Cottage is located in the small hamlet of Alton about 7 miles from Chesterfield and Matlock. There are numerous pubs and restaurants close by and the Peak District is 10 minutes away by car. If you feel more energetic it is easy to walk from the cottage & explore the local countryside.

Where you’ll be

Alton, England, United Kingdom

Hope’s home is located 7 miles from Matlock and Chesterfield.
As we are in a rural location this is a great place to relax and leave your busy life behind for a while. There are lots of lovely walks straight from the cottage. Our tiny hamlet does not support any local taverns, the nearest pubs & restaurants are about 5 minutes by car away or 30 minutes walk on a light summer evening. For good food, I would recommend 'Batemans Mill' 5 minutes away at Old Tupton, The Black Swan in Ashover which is the nearest village to Alton with 3 pubs, post office & shop. Chatsworth House, Haddon and Hardwick Hall are between 15 and 20 minutes away. There are great farmer's markets to visit in nearby villages along with Well Dressings and open garden weekends in the summer.
