Pearson's But and Ben is an utterly wonderful holiday retreat nestled in a picturesque little valley on the edge of the Peak District National Park. It has been interior designed with superb attention to detail in its furnishings, decor, colours and textures. Totally refurbished to an incredible standard it just oozes quality throughout all its spacious accommodation. It must be one of the best cottages in Derbyshire!

Surrounded by lovely countryside with fantastic views down the valley to the hills beyond it has a lovely rural setting yet the charming little town of Wirksworth is just five minutes' drive away with its heritage trail and railway, range of local shops, pubs, restaurants and even a small cinema. The High Peak Trail which is great for walkers and cyclists passes close by and Carsington Water with its wild water sports, cycle trails and birdwatching is just over the hill.

There are also lots of other Peak District attractions in the surrounding hills. Matlock Bath with its cable cars and riverside prom is not to be missed. Magnificent Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are just up the Derwent Valley. Venture beyond famous Bakewell and you are in the real Peaks with sparkling rivers, picturesque villages, incredible views from the grit stone edges and country pubs galore.

Such a beautiful cosy cottage. Easy to get to a variety of walks and days out.

Previous Customer,

Everything about this cottage screamed quality- the location, the views, fixtures and fittings and equipment- were all fantastic. If the weather is kind there is plenty of outside seating but the cottage is a little cosy if it's raining and there are four of you indoors. The road up to the property is a little scary but the sheep don't seem to mind! I would definitely recommend this cottage and we will certainly be booking again.

Mrs P,

A great week in this attractive high-standard cottage. All the comfort and convenience we could want, with stunning; scenic surroundings and excellent access to walks in beautiful and varied countryside, plus interesting local towns.

Mr C,

Lovely views from the outdoor seating areas. The kitchen was well equipped. The main bedroom was great, but the second one was a bit small with nowhere to put our luggage.

Mrs D,

Exceptional cottage, very high standard throughout in a fabulous setting. Had a wonderful time here. Thank you see you again soon.
