The large garden has a large decking area and a raised garden with more seated area with fresh water fish pond which looks over fields and can lead to many walks. Why not take a walk to one of Englands oldest pubs The holy Bush which is just 200 yds up the road serving traditional ales and fresh food daily or if you fancy a little bit more of a lively stay take a 5 mile bus or taxi into Derby city centre or a little further to Nottingham and you will find lots of trendy bars and clubs at your disposal. Really you will have the best of both worlds by being in the countryside and not to far from city life. Unfortunately we do not take stag weekends or 18-30 year old mixed groups of young people.We do take Hen parties and love to have families with children More

About the neighbourhood
Belper is were the hosiery business started at The East Mill the strutt family owned and maintained Belper as its own.Nearly all residents of Belper worked for the Strutt family ,they owned all the cottages which can be visited today up the cobbled streets of Long Row .They educated the children in their own school and bought vast wealth to Belper and made it one of the most thriving towns in England. The strutt family resided in Makeney Hall which is were the Gate House once stood and which then became a garage simply to maintain their Rolls Royce cars .The Gate House then became a working garage for the people of Milford for many years until it was restored to a fabulous Holiday Lodge .
