Chelmorton is a classic White Peak limestone village set in stunning upland scenery, and a very quiet and peaceful village. It is one of the highest villages not only in Derbyshire, but all England and this region is known locally as Top Country. One of the dominant features of the White Peak landscape are the limestone walls and there is nowhere better to see these than in and around Chelmorton.
The strip like crofts and patchwork of walls run at right angles off the main street and date back to medieval times. The village is built along this single street running up to the church of St John the Baptist, with its' graceful spire topped by a weather vane in the shape of a locust. Behind the church is Chelmorton Low (low in the Peak perversely signifies a height) and from here the delightful Illy Will Water stream runs down through the village. Opposite the church is the village pub, The Church Inn is a family friendly pub serving great homemade dishes and local ales. It also has a great outdoor seating area for whiling away a summer evening. Booking a table is recommended
Further afield you will find the pretty market town of Bakewell less than 10 minutes drive from the cottage. Here you will find an abundance of local businesses and independent retailers selling lots of lovely things. A 10 minute drive in the other direction brings you to Buxton, another lovely market town famed for its natural spa waters. Visit the stunning Buxton Opera House, stroll around the Pavilion Gardens or head to Pooles Cavern where you will find the Go Ape adventure course and lots of fabulous walking around the 2 million year old limestone cave!

The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for Rose Cottage. Verbatim.
I would highly recommend staying at Rose Cottage. Beautifully decorated, fantastic location, with more than enough room for 2 adults and 2 children. Great amenities - beds were comfy, along with big fluffy towels, very nice back garden. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Peak District, you should stay here!
A lovely stay in the Peak District, the cottage had everything we needed and was very tidy. A short drive from some beautiful walking spots. We had a really nice stay and loved the cottage
Rose cottage is located in a great location in a quiet village within the Peak District. The cottage is ideal for a small family of four or like ourselves two adults and their family pooch. Within this cottage you will feel at ease immediately. The cosy hallway invites you in where you’ll enjoy an evening on some comfy sofas or making yourself a meal in the modern kitchen which has every item you could possible need. Upstairs we slept in a calming bedroom with the most comfortable bed. There is a further small bedroom suitable for two younger members of a family. Out in the garden, if the weather allows, there is a small rear patio kitted with table and chairs, under a modern new pergola. The location of Rose Cottage was perfect to enable us to visit many different places over the short time we were there. The added bonus for us was the local village pub (Church Inn) which is within an easy walking distance away.
Rose cottage was a lovely place to stay. The cottage is really cosy and has all of the expected amenities, plus a BBQ which was great for warm evenings. The welcome guide was excellent and we used Sourced locally to deliver fresh produce which was in the house when we arrived. The village of Chelmorton is very pretty and the local pub has good food and a nice selection of local beers. We did a some good walks locally including Bamford edge and Chee Gorge.
Absolutely beautiful cottage, had a lovely few days. Would definitely stay again!
We were having a break from our farm and glamping business and so happy we booked Rose Cottage. The cottage was perfect in every way. The garden was fabulous for the children and dogs, a nice enclosed walled area. Short walk to footpaths and the the local put which did fabulous hearty meals. Local residents were super friendly which was lovely. The cottage was bright, fresh and clean with everything you need. We read a few of the books and the children got through lots of the DVDS. We also hired a dog sitter whilst there which meant we could go out for the day on a few occasions. Dog sitter i booked through Charlotte and Pavillion Pets who were brilliant. Super comfortable beds and beautiful decor. Kitchen and bathroom had a lovely fresh and clean feel about them. Outside there was also a handy shed for locking your bikes up in. Even though we didn't get to meet the host communication was clear from both owner and Peakvenues. Thank you all so much for a memorable time in Chelmorton Hannah and family
We loved our stay in Rose Cottage. Beautifully decorated throughout.. some lovely touches. Very comfortable and cozy! The bed was so comfortable! The space was just right. Lovely garden in the front and back for our pug to enjoy. The kitchen was well stocked. Smart TV was a bonus and we could watch films by the log fire. Plenty of walks from the cottage too. There was lots of books and maps to help choose local walks. Everything was just perfect… the only regret was not staying longer! Highly recommended !
Rose cottage is a cute little place to stay in the heart of Peak District. Sparking clean with modern bathroom and kitchen. Perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids max. Thanks for hosting us.
Gorgeous little cottage in a perfect location to explore. Everything you could possibly need to make your stay easy was available. Hosts were really helpful and communication was spot on.
The cottage is lovely, clean and cosy. It is very well equipped and the fire was enjoyed by all! The location is perfect too - 10min drive to Buxton and Bakewell. Allison was also very helpful and quick to reply to messages. The cottage is amazing and we loved our stay!
Beautifully presented cottage, everything you need and more. Perfect location for south Peak District - lots on doorstep to explore. Very comfy bed!
Lovely hospitality , particularly liked the thoughtful milk in fridge and welcome chocolates and card . The dog basket with dog towels was also very useful with the wild weather during our stay . Thank you Alison and Kate for a lovely weekend
The cottage was beautiful, set back from the street in a super quiet village the location was perfect! The cottage itself had plenty of room for cars and it’s own little gate to let yourself in. It was VERY clean and you can tell the owners had not held back on decorating the cottage, every part of it was lovely! The cottage had plenty of equipment to cook. The location itself was close to a lot of key walking areas and easy to drive to them. If you didn’t want to drive anywhere you could walk to some lovely walking places as well. We brought our dogs and they loved it also very dog friendly. We will be coming again that’s for sure, not one negative thing to say at all just perfect! 5* across everything Thanks Sophie and Josh

We stayed 3 nights at this perfectly cosy cottage and didn't want to leave. It was so warm and welcoming, especially the cosy lounge with the sparkly Christmas tree. The cottage is situated in a perfect location between Buxton and Bakewell, which are just a short drive away. It is on a charming street with other beautiful cottages and a great little pub at the top, which we went to a couple of times for drinks and great food. The cottage was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat with lots of walks and places to visit on the doorstep. Thank you!
Rose Cottage was a lovely home from home and well situated with many amazing sites and attractions a short drive away.
Thank you for the use of your lovely house. We really enjoyed our time away, although our feet may take another week to recover from all the fabulous walks!
Great weekend and well finished house and garden. Helpful landlord. Second bedroom is child bunks only. Ask for the twin bed in the room that can also be made as a double if you are friends sharing.
The cottage was lovely and we had a great time Thank You!
We really enjoyed our stay, the house is great! Thank you
We had a wonderful stay in the quintessential Peaks Rose Cottage. We arrived to plenty of advice for what to do locally. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and really comfy. Chelmorton is well located for lots of great walks plus a pub at the top of the road. Our two kids loved the bunk beds and our dog had a great time in the garden which has a nice seating area. The cottage isn't quite as large as the photos made out but we loved the style and the attention to detail. We'd thoroughly recommend it.
Fantastic cottage with good cooking facilities if you want a night in, or a good, friendly pub only 2 minutes up the road with some fantastic food and drinks. Thank you for a fantastic stay in the Peak District for a much needed break!
We have loved staying in Rose Cottage, so very comfortable and generously appointed. Everything was is in such good order, clean and new. This is a super part of England which is unknown to us and we would love to stay here again very soon.
“Highly recommend - we had a lovely stay at Rose Cottage. The accommodation was immaculately clean, super comfortable and very well-equipped. Our puppy loved exploring the garden too. The village is quiet and peaceful, but ideally located between Buxton and Bakewell (which has everything you need in terms of groceries, cafes, etc). We loved waking up to the sounds of birds and sheep. Thanks so much for having us - we would love to return some day.”
We have had a wonderful break. Your cottage was excellent. You have thought of everything and more. So comfortable and cosy. Perfect!
A lovely little cottage away from the main tourist areas, but close enough to be close to everywhere you would want to visit. The cottage itself was sparkling clean, stylish and very dog friendly!
We’ve just loved Rose Cottage. It’s such a lovely place. So clean, tidy and well equipped. Huge thanks.
This is a lovely modernised cottage out within a beautiful rural village. The cottage is situated in Chelmorton, a small quiet village allowing easy access to wherever you want to travel within the Peak District. The directions provided by the host made it easy to find with plenty of nearby roadside parking. We received a message from the host prior to our arrival, and assured us that we could contact them should we need anything during our stay :)
“The cottage is truly beautiful and is in a stunning location! It is perfectly equipped with everything you will need for any length of stay too, all the small details that are often not thought about had been catered for perfectly! We loved our stay here and I'm sure anyone else would love it too! Great place to stay and the hosts were perfect!”
A beautiful cottage, we had a great time staying here with our children, lots of space for them to run around, and the cottage is very well equipped. We had a great week, thank you.
We had a great stay in a lovely cottage
Had a lovely weekend stay at Rose Cottage, the attention to detail was second to none. The kitchen is full equipped with everything you could possibly need. The bed in the master bedroom is the extremely comfortable. The living room is cosy but with enough space for 4 people to sit and relax. Outdoor space is huge yet secluded...We will be coming back!

Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for horse riders, cyclists and walkers of all abilities. It is also suitable for wheel chairs and pushchairs along the flat sections and the trail is mainly mud free which is quite rare in the Peak District.
