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 Willy 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 towns of Bakewell and Buxton 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.
Ingle Cottage is a short drive (or an hours country walk!) to oa great country pub The Royal Oak at Hurdlow which boasts an expansive menu of home-cooked food. Also the recently refurbished pub with pizzeria at The Bull I' Th' Thorn offering homemade wood fired pizza with fresh dough made daily by our Italian chef, tasty burgers and classic British pub meals on the menu.

The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for Ingle Cottage. Verbatim.
This property was stunning! Clean and well presented throughout with fantastic facilities. Well-equipped kitchen for entertaining. Quality appliances and everything you may need. The hosts left teabags and coffee bags which were really handy as this was overlooked by us and so were much appreciated. The bathrooms and bedrooms were stylish, spotless, functional and well equipped. Haveing parking space also helped but there was ample parking opportunities on the street. The heating was responsive and modern with NEST control. The log fire in the dining space was very handy and the hosts even prepared the fire with kindling and a supply of logs. i cannot really fault anything. the stay was exceedingly comfortable and the local information left by the host was really helpful as was the advanced brochure that was sent after booking. Just wish we could have stayed for longer. Recommended!

Lovely stay at this pristine cottage. Super clean, photos matched real life and sleeps 6-8 comfortably if like us you get the attic room. Really lovely kitchen, clean bathrooms and comfy beds.

We have all had a fantastic long weekend at Ingle Cottage for a birthday celebration. The cottage is one of the best we have ever stayed in. It was so clean, the layout worked perfectly for us, the beds were super comfy with lovely fresh white bedding. The kitchen is lovely and well equipped. We did bring our coffee machine and echo dot speaker but apart from that we had everything we needed. We made use of the outside space as we were so lucky to have gorgeous weather.

Both trails meet at Parsley Hay, the Tissington Trail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, while the High Peak Trail is 17.5 miles long route from the High Peak junction near Cromford to Dowlow. 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. From Chelmorton you can join the Midshires Way at High Stool Lane (locally known as Blinder Lane, pronounce blin - der) and take in the panoramic views of Flagg moor. Walk along the lane until you meet the A515 cross the road and onto the High Peak Trail south towards Hurdlow, Parsley Hay and beyond.
