Elm Croft is a small, compact detached cottage, created by its owners who live in the adjacent property. The building is constructed to a high standard with modern fixtures and fittings. It has all the facilities one could wish for in a holiday cottage and is attractively presented and decorated. It has under floor heating under the quarry tiled floors and there is the added bonus of a log burning stove (for which logs are provided). It is comprehensively and comfortably furnished, has a super king-size bed (or twin beds depending upon how you'd like it configured), and a beautifully fitted kitchen and bathroom.
The cottage is very peacefully situated in the quiet hamlet of Hollins, part of the parish of Old Brampton, some 3 miles West of Chesterfield, so there is very little traffic noise. There is a small sheltered rear patio area adjacent to meadow and open fields.
There is ample off-street parking in front of the cottage.

Hollins is an attractive little hamlet on the edge of the Peak District National Park with local walks in the beautiful Linacre Valley right from the cottage door.
Wander up the road to a choice of the Royal Oak or the Fox and Goose pubs, or further up to Pudding Pie hill for views both 30 miles East to the Trent Valley and West over the rolling Peak District hills.
This is an ideal location hidden in the lovely Derbyshire
countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of all the tourist
visitors yet Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Lathkill Dale,
Monsal Dale, Froggatt Edge, Stanage Edge and the Derwent Valley
attractions are all within a 15 minute drive. Grindleford,
Hathersage, Castleton and the rest of the Hope Valley are only a
little further away. Venture the other way and the same short
journey will take you to the historic market town of Chesterfield,
and only a little further to Bolsover's magnificent castle, romantic
Hardwick Hall and even Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest.
Derbyshire has one of the country's largest Country Shows at Bakewell, also one day shows at Ashover and Hope. Chatsworth hosts an annual Country Fair and Horse Trials.
