Frith Cottage is a delightful little Derbyshire gritstone cottage dating to around 1820. Likely built by William Strutt, the first son of industrialist Jedediah Stutt, to house women and children mill workers and provide employment to their nail maker husbands. Each one of these cottages had a little nail making workshop out in the back yard, all, alas, now long gone.

 

Frith Cottage, which takes its name from the Medieval Royal Hunting Forest the Duffield Frith, is beautifully decorated with a nod to its Regency past. The 'rustic Regency' decor adds a hint of luxury to this lovely little cottage, making it warm and inviting whilst being contemporary and beautiful. Furniture, soft furnishings and fabrics add a vintage touch. Original art by well known Derbyshire artists depicting Derbyshire landscapes and views adorn the walls.

 

One bedroomed, but possessing an attic room that contains a quality daybed, which makes a lovely rainy day reading retreat, Frith Cottage sleeps 2-3 people. A well equipped kitchen and clean, white shower room with a high quality shower and WC, central heating and great little wood burning stove completes the interior package.

 

The terraced garden provides a private sheltered seating area and a fabulous little patio with a Mary Poppins-like rooftop view of Belper and its Countryside. There is also a built-in outdoor BBQ that guests are free to use to make the most of the garden. Free WiFi.

 

All linens and towels are provided. Wood available to purchaseFor the stove and is sourced from our own woodlands.
