About & Contact

Spacious upside down cottage for four people

This upside down cottage was created from an old cart shed on our farm. formerly part of the Chatsworth estate. It has a large upstairs sitting room with magnificent exposed beams and a log burning stove. This cottage is ideal for two couples as downstairs there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, a twin bedroom and a further bathroom.

Above the front door are the three original massive oak beams. The two delightful bedrooms are accessed from the entrance hall. The master bedroom has light oak furniture, a 5 foot double bed and en suite bathroom with a new large walk in shower and a bath. The second bedroom, with twin beds is on the other side of the hall and has the use of the second bathroom, (with over bath shower) accessed from the hall.

Upstairs is a stunning spacious sitting room with old oak beams, one wall retains the original exposed stone, giving the room great rural character. There is a log burning stove to keep you warm and comfortable and a plentiful supply of logs is provided. There is free WiFi throughout the cottage, a Sky Freeview TV and DVD player.

The cream painted kitchen breakfast room, off the sitting room, has a Neff electric cooker and ceramic hob, Bosch dishwasher and washer/dryer, large Neff fridge/freezer and a microwave. The dining table seats 4 people.

Outside the shared lawned area has a picnic table with a sunshade for sunny days when you may wish to dine outside. There is ample car parking immediately outside the cottage. In an adjoining shed there is secure bicycle storage and a supply of logs. Our private tarmac drive is half a mile long and a safe place for children on bicycles and for lovely after dinner ambles.

Reviews for Derwent Cottage at Churchdale Farm

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Sarah Winkworth-Smith

Hello, my name is Sarah and I live at Churchdale Farm with my husband John. Churchdale was previously part of the Chatsworth estate. We are sheep farmers and thoroughly enjoy living in the Peak District. When we bought the farm John spent a great deal of time abroad on business and I wanted to develop a home based business so that I could be at home for the children. Fortunately, we had some old farm buildings which we were able to convert into three charming holiday cottages. I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of developing the business and being awarded both the 5 Star Gold Award and the Green Business Tourism Award. Running the cottages is a very varied job including embracing changes in technology, fashion and taste and working closely with the local community. I very much enjoy meeting my guests and talking with them about the wonderful area we live in.
