exceptional and professional

Derbyshire Country Cottages have been exceptional and professional. They advised and guided me through the whole process of letting my holiday premises. The Matlock Office is always available for queries and reply promptly. Since the beginning of my let in April 2021 I have been fully booked. Thank you.

Owner Little House, Matlock

highly delighted with the support and service

We joined many years ago because we wanted a local and personal service. We have been highly delighted with the support and service, and booking levels are always high. There is always someone you know to talk to, to help with queries. The flexibility to have owner bookings is a big plus too.

Owner Cara, Holymoorside

best of both worlds

We didn’t want to disappear into internet clutter with a massive company. We like that you’re a small local team with years of marketing experience and inspect all the properties yourselves. But you also have the advertising clout of Original Cottages, best of both worlds.

Owner Park Corner, Sutton Scarsdale
