3 Bedroom House In Eckington, Worcestershire

The village of Eckington is situated on the north-west side of Bredon Hill, an outcrop of the famous Cotswold hills, and is surrounded by the River Avon. Here you can leave the car behind as you are well served on foot, there is a well-stocked village store and two good pubs. You can embrace the outdoors with waymarked paths for both walking and cycling, follow the riverside walks from Strensham Lock, or enjoy a day’s fishing on the River Avon, within half a mile. This area has a year-round events calendar: follow the Blossom Trail in springtime, the Asparagus Festival in the summer, and attend the Plum Festival in autumn. A paradise for walkers of all abilities and stamina (great for the kids), there is easy access to Bredon Hill, 4 miles away and made famous by AE Houseman’s ‘A Shropshire Lad’, and the Wychavon Way, 3 miles.

Dramatic limestone cliffs offer stunning views, cradling the River Derwent which takes you into the heart of Matlock itself or through Matlock Bath into historic Cromford. Less than half a mile away, heading into Matlock, you are met with quirky shops, cafes and restaurants. Head the other way and you can scale High Tor or take a gentle stroll on lovers walk, enjoying the amusements and gift shops of Matlock Bath. Venture a mere 7 miles away and you will find Chatsworth and Bakewell.

The cottage itself offers a cosy living room, with colourful accent cushions and throws. Books and games can be found here, and a Smart TV to unwind in the evenings. The flame effect fire makes for a cosy night after exploring Derbyshire. The kitchen is modern and bright, with a dining table offering a great space to gather and share meals together. Just outside the kitchen door, you can enjoy the outside patio space. The first floor offers two bedrooms, one with a beautiful en-suite and there is a separate shower room. The top floor has another bedroom and a quiet space to relax and unwind. Each bedroom is uniquely and beautifully decorated.

Outside there is an enclosed patio at the rear, and out the front, you can walk straight over the road and meet the River Derwent, with walks into Matlock via the park or into Matlock Bath.
