things to do

the old millworker’s cottage

on your doorstep

Amazing walks and quite outstanding pubs and restaurants a short walk away awaiting you.

On Hopping Hill in the middle of this old village, we have found everyone friendly and this is one of the first airbnb’s in the area so you won’t be in a tourist trap but able to join what’s available in a lovely Derbyshire village.

Across the road is a riverside walk and ‘beach’ on the River Derwent. The Peaks are about 15 miles north just past Matlock along the A6 which runs past the rear of the cottage.

Milford has 3 pubs in walking distance and The Palfrey restaurant about 10 doors down (thepalfrey.co.uk).

Milford also has an ice cream shop.  A new Indian pub has opened in December 2022.

Local village of Duffield (1 mile) Co-op, chemist, bakers, chip shop is quite the Notting Hill of Derbyshire with wine bars, cafe scene and restaurants.

The beautiful market town of Belper is a mile north of the cottage. Belper is packed with everything you need and has won British best high street twice in recent years!
