The Yellow House is just brilliant as it oozes quality with its lovely decor and drapes, oak floors and doors, exposed stone walls, leather Chesterfield sofas and a glowing log burning stove. It also provides lots of spacious accommodation with a large lounge, orangery, dining room, dining kitchen, four large bedrooms and three bathrooms. And then there is the extensive landscaped garden, patio and summer house!
Surrounded by rolling countryside it is conveniently located for all Derbyshire's myriad of holiday attractions. Alfreton the nearest town has lots of little shops and a Tesco supermarket. Turn the other way and you are soon travelling across the beautiful Amber Valley to Matlock and Bakewell, with their country town shops, and the fantastic Peak District National Park beyond.
This is the last description I am writing this year so please forgive the following. Matlock Bath with its dramatic scenery and lots of attractions is almost unbelievable. Chatsworth House with its Emperor Fountain is incredible. The views from Frogatt Edge always send a shiver down my spine. Sam our youngest likes feeding the ducks in Bakewell. Robert and Harriet think Peak Rail's Steam trains are great. Jessica and Richard always get soaked rafting out to Carsington's islands. Lizzy is hooked on Alton Towers!
