Find a rural escape by renting a holiday let in the Derbyshire countryside. Stay in a converted farm cottage or barn, surrounded by nothing except green fields and hedges. All roads out of Shottle could be described as country lanes, narrow with good views over the farmland.  This is the place to come when you do not want to be disturbed by anything other than skylarks and the occasional cockerel.


What Shottle, Derbyshire offers for Self-Catering Holidays

Each cottage in and around Shottle is a real country treat. All of the properties are nicely furnished, clean and well maintained. Some of the holiday lettings are pet-friendly so that you can bring your dogs for walks in the countryside around Shottle.

Shottle is a hamlet located just a few miles from the southern end of the Peak District National Park. Situated in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales, this area has an abundance of footpaths and attracts many walkers. It’s also known for its diverse wildlife. You will also notice an abundance of oak trees in this landscape, a legacy of a royal hunting forest called Duffield Frith, dating from medieval times. With plenty of greenery, fields and trees, this is an idyllic place for a country cottage holiday.

Shottle offers plenty of opportunities to just take it easy in a wonderfully rural location but if you want to get out and about you will find plenty to see and do for romantic breaks, holidays with friends and family holidays alike.

Shottle lies due south of Wirksworth

Shottle sits above the Ecclesbourne Valley where the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway welcomes train lovers, both young and young at heart. The railway runs what they describe as heritage diesel railcars between Wirksworth and Duffield and some steam services between Wirksworth and Ravenstor. Passengers can sit back and relax whilst taking in the scenic highlights of this lovely valley. There are also stations at Shottle and Idridgehay. Look out for special events, which are regularly scheduled.

Country holidays in Derbyshire

When taking a cottage holiday in Derbyshire, why not take a few day trips out and explore the nearby old market town of Wirksworth?  Shopping and eating outlets abound in this town. Also, there is a weekly market and a monthly farmers’ market. During the summer season, the Heritage Centre opens its doors. Wirksworth is also highly rated for its church of St. Mary. The village of Duffield is also worth a visit and has cafes, shops and pubs, plus it’s close to a small nature reserve and sports facilities at Eyes Meadow.

Shottle is also only around two and a half miles from the market town of Belper and well worth a visit whilst on a self-catering break. This small, attractive town offers more amenities and it has a rather special attraction. This part of Derbyshire has a fascinating industrial history, which comes alive when you visit the Derwent Valley Visitors Centre at Strutt’s North Mill. Exhibits tell the story of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, of which Belper is a part. Pioneering factory systems for the cotton industry put this area on the map in the 18th century.   

Whilst visiting the centre, why not make a day of it and explore the River Gardens? This tranquil oasis offers riverside gardens with views over the River Derwent. In addition to the floral displays, there is a bandstand (concerts take place during the summer), a duck pond, a poetry trail and children’s play area. Outdoor theatre productions and other events are held in the grounds and you can hire a rowing boat on the river. The Poetry Trail is a fun treasure hunt for verses by famous writers such as Philip Larkin, W.B. Yeats, Robert Louis Stevenson, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Spike Milligan.

Families with children should also take note that one of the UK’s top family attractions, Alton Towers Theme Park is just 22 miles from Shottle. Boasting rides for children and adults of all ages plus a water park, there is plenty to do for a day or two at this famous theme park.
