This charming detached stone cottage is nestled high on the hillside overlooking Matlock Bath and the beautiful Derwent Valley - you will not believe the views until you get here!

Over the past year we have had dozens of happy guests including many Hen Parties... here are what some of them have to say about the cottage:
I organised a group holiday for my sisters hen do and Crow Pie cottage was the perfect location. We had enough space for all 14 of us and the kitchen was a great space for cooking and socialising over a glass of Cava. I would happily recommend it to other groups, both families and friends. Crow Pie Cottage has all you need to if you want to enjoy beautiful countryside or relax, play games, eat, drink, laugh with a group. It is also very easy to get to from London on the train if you don't want to bring cars. Chloe's Hen Do August 2012
This cottage was everything I hoped it would be when I booked it for my sister's hen party: beautifully warm and cosy downstairs with the log-burning stove making it hard to leave the expansive living room; a really well-supplied kitchen, with everything we needed to prepare and enjoy a celebratory meal (the slow cooker was a real treat) and a full English breakfast the morning after, and dramatic views.

Many thanks for a lovely stay in Crow Pie Cottage. The cottage was beautiful, sparkling clean and had everything we needed, from a spectacular view to an iPod dock in each room. Jackie was really helpful and recommended some great places for us to visit on her recommendation we enjoyed lunch in the Princess Victoria pub and some very entertaining pot-painting at Going Potty! We would certainly visit again, thanks for a great stay.
