Postern View really is a little gem nestled in the Derbyshire village of Turnditch. On entering the terraced property, step into an English oak framed dining area which leads through to a kitchen that will not disappoint. Featuring solid oak dovetail units, granite worktops with a plethora of Neff cooking appliances. The typical cosy cottage living room is an ideal place to spend relaxing evenings in front of the multi-fuel burner. The first floor offers two bespoke bedrooms and a lovely bathroom with a rain shower. This wonderful cottage offers not one, but two well maintained gardens to enjoy, with mature evergreen shrubs and pretty borders to the front of the cottage. Follow the laurel hedge lined pathway to the rear from the driveway to find a lawned area and a fantastic Indian slate seating area.
Turnditch is a delightful hillside village in the heart of Derbyshire, overlooking the Ecclesbourne Valley. Conveniently located on the Belper to Ashbourne road, the village has a church, a school and three pubs. The adjacent village of Hulland Ward offers a petrol station, shop and post office. Discover the many walks up and down the valley, as well as cycling and a wide variety of water sports to enjoy at nearby Carsington Water. The attractive, traditional market towns of Belper, Wirksworth, Ashbourne and Matlock are within easy reach, as are Alton Towers, for a fun family day out, and the famous and historic houses of Haddon Hall, Kedleston House and Chatsworth House. Along with fishing on the River Derwent and golf nearby, this is a wonderful part of the Peak District, with plenty to do whatever the time of year. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    The cottege was very cosy and warm. Any response required from the hosts was timely. Equipment was plenty so we had all we needed to Cooke with. We will definitely be returning to this cosy gem. Thank you Caroline.

    Warm, clean, well equipped little cottage with some lovely country walks from the door. A lovely start to the New Year. The bed was rather hard for our old bones! But this is just personal choice.

    The cottage has a very odd layout with the neighbours window looking out over the back garden as its pithing the boundary of this cottage. The side gate onto the main road kept being left open and blew open on two occasions as although we secured it, it was evident someone else was using it to go out and therefore couldn't lock it properly from the road side. This was very dangerous as we had 2 dogs with us and the whole point of having an enclosed garden is that its secure. Clearly, the access by neighbours through the 'front' garden was not only just to put the bins out. The immediate neighbours side gate was open when we arrived back one day and wouldn't shut so we had to put the garden bench in front of it so that the dogs wouldn't go through. The key safe is very awkward to get to and we had significant difficulty opening it on our arrival. This is not what is needed after a 4 hour drive. We phoned the owners who didn't reply as they were in a location where the signal wasn't good. After 25 minutes, we managed to open it. The kitchen equipment was greasy and the cooker was difficult to operate. One of the induction rings didn't work and the supplied instructions didn't match the hob installed. Perhaps they had replaced it? The supplied frying pan was unusable as the coating inside it was 'ruffled up' so would have burnt anything we put in it. The frying pan I had brought with me was unsuitable for an induction hob so we had to travel to Argos to buy a new one. The kitchen crockery was dubious - one pasta bowl? We had to buy some new mugs. The sitting room was only suitable for 2 people (although we were not comfortable on a hard leather settee) as the 'chair' was small and very uncomfortable. The single bed was so small that it would have been unsuitable for our male friend, had he been able to come, to sleep on. We left 3 days earlier than we had paid for as we were not enjoying being in the property. The bathroom was very clean, but awkward to get into the bath to have a shower as the bath taps had been placed in the 'nearside' middle, making it harder to swing a leg over. There was no hand rail on the wall side to help. It's clear this property was originally one larger one, which has been split into smaller cottages, hence the neighbours sitting room window actually within the fenced part/boundary of the properties back garden. There is no privacy with this property at all. The suggested' off lead' dog walks were dire: one had a field of cattle in it so we couldn't get in it and the other, was overgrown to the extent that you couldn't walk abreast with a dog on a lead and you couldn't let the dog off as the sheep field adjacent had notices re shooting dogs and the fence looked a bit dodgy in places. If you advertise a cottage as a dog friendly cottage, you need to consider being able to let dogs 'do their business' in the garden providing it is cleared up. Going down either track at night, in an unfamiliar terrain is just not feasible and is not safe. If you don't want dogs using the garden, don't advertise it as dog friendly.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our cottage. The general appeal of a 150 year old rural cottage is that you can be guaranteed ‘quirky bits’ and we have tried our very best to make the old cottage comfortable for modern living. As can be seen from other review comments left, many guests and returning guests have embraced, enjoyed and personally thanked us for sharing this little piece of English heritage.
