Self catering holiday cottages to rent in Milford, Derbyshire, England

A cottage holiday in Milford, on the River Derwent in Derbyshire, offers a potentially magical experience.   Just a seemingly ordinary Derbyshire village, north of Derby can prove to be the best place for a romantic break. The river arches around the town which should please Aquarians. A good spot to view it during your holiday is at Hopping Mill Weir where visitors come to watch the cascading waters, or from the terrace of Mill House where you can enjoy a meal and pint whilst watching torrents of water flash past.   Whilst there, book a table at Angelo’s New Inn, high up over the river and add Itialianate glamour to an evening of your holiday in Milford. You may have booked a cottage or even a holiday apartment but it is trips and treats that add up to a very special stay and keep the allure alive. It is not so much where you stay in Milford as what you do to create that memorable break.


Information on Cottage Holidays in Milford

A place for sweet dreams on holiday

 It all happens whilst you are asleep, tucked up in your holiday cottage, resting under the planets and the stars. Outside, the wind gently fills the village with life. It awakens the trees by strumming their branches with a gentle waft of air, the leaves respond to this wake- up call and dance to its tune, swirling on the ebb and flow of its breath. It then blows a refreshing waft of cool air into the nostrils of sleepy beaks nestled under feathery eiderdowns…and the birds rise and shine, keen to add their own sweet tones to the beautiful choir of the earth… and the grass, the wind sweeps across its blades, causing them to sway in time…then it rushes over to the wildflowers and puffs its rejuvenating breath onto each one of them…and they raise their heads,  gladly answering the winds excited request to join its symphony…and the whole village begins to hum with this beautiful wake- up call. If you are still slumbering, the wind will blow over the oceans, whipping them up into a crescendo of passionate, wild timbres to slowly stir those eyelids and coax them into the land of the living…not only will this awaken your physical body, it will awaken your spiritual body too….

There are holiday cottages with couples appeal for romantic breaks, sensible family oriented houses with fully enclosed gardens to keep dogs safe and also unusual properties for the quirky and imaginative.  Imagine bedrooms old and new, with four poster beds and ultra sleek super king expanses. A self-catering holiday in Milford could be a complete revelation.  

Now that you have been gently stirred you can begin your day in Milford, take a long, peaceful walk…who knows what lies ahead? Mother Nature is the star of the show, she has created the plot and you are an audience member whose role is to marvel at every scene. Proud statuesque fells  are just a stone’s throw away in the Peak District, their summits shining brightly like golden crowns under a scorching sun. And for something regal, why not pay a visit to Chatsworth House? Watch out for the chickens that strut around with such great pride. The tours are very well put together, very relaxed and well -paced. Can you conquer the maze? It looks easy but it could be a while before you reach the other side! And the house…well, majestic is a word which certainly sums it up. The artwork is out of this world,  look for the violin hanging on the wall, is it a painting or is it real? Alton Towers theme park is just 43 minutes away, the addition of the gardens makes it a lovely place for everyone. Pretty market towns are scattered all around including Bakewell, the home of the Bakewell tart. If you fancy a flutter, Uttoxeter race course is just 24 miles away and Donington Park is sure to drive in the motor racing enthusiasts.….

If you are drawn to streets which flow like rivers, why not follow them to:

  • Kedleston Hall (5 miles)
  • Crich Tramway Village (8 miles)
  • Dove Dale…a beautiful valley in the Peak District (19 miles)
  • Hardwick Hall and Gardens (23 miles)

Book a Milford cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Derbyshire on holiday.
