What Our Guests Say...
Fantastic bungalow, great location
Tracey is there to greet you upon arrival and take you through everything you need to know. The bungalow itself is great, there were 4 of us and we had plenty of room. It is well equipped with everything you need for your stay. Location wise it was great as all the place we wanted to visit were within 30 mins drive. Garden was peaceful and great place to relax after a busy day. Flowers and chocolates on arrival and a bottle of cooling in the fridge for us……bliss!!
Fabulous holiday house
This is our third visit to No 31 Belper and we love it. We could not wish for a better base for exploring delightful Derbyshire The property is always immaculate and the owner thinks of everything to make your stay a comfortable and happy one. Comfortable lounge , comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and a secluded garden to relax in. This is the ideal home from home holiday let.
Tracey was there to meet us and showed us around. There were fresh flowers and yummy chocolates along with chocolate buttons for the children. We had milk in the fridge for tea, a packet of coffee and wine for later. The beds had been made up with duvets but the weather was very hot so Tracey left extra top sheets and we just slept under them. It was very thoughtful. The place was spotlessly clean with plenty of towels. It may not be an ultra modern property but it was comfortable and we felt very relaxed. Also provided are a mountain of leaflets for local attractions and we were well placed to visit many of them. We could have spent another week exploring as there are so many things to do. We would certainly recommend to others. We’ve had a lovely break.
Great base for exploring Derbyshire/Peak District
The property was lovely and was easily the best equipped out of any holiday home we have stayed in, with lots of thoughtful extras. Tracey (the owner) was really helpful and gave us lots of suggestions of things to do in the area with our young son.
Immaculate, well equiped ‘home from home’.
Have just returned from a wonderful week in Belper, This bungalow was immaculately clean throughout, fitted out with everything you could possibly want for a weeks holiday. Was met on arrival by owner who also left a welcome pack of teas, coffees and milk as well as wine, chocolates and flowers. Outside there is a wonderful garden in which to sit and relax at the end of the day. Hope to return very soon.
Excellent bungalow and facilities, Tracey was an excellent host, nothing was too much trouble and all the additional “goodies” made the stay very enjoyable – thank you for the care and attention. Area is a brilliant area to visit, so much to see and do, not enough days to do it all in.
Another Cossy stay at No 31
This was our second stay in this comfortable, clean, well equipped bungalow. Although it was cold outside we were cozy and warm inside and our daughter loves the bed and duvet. Tracey makes you feel very welcome and is always available if needed. Belper is a lovely town with plenty of shops and places to eat and is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District and local area.
Delightful, Relaxing Property.
We received a warm welcome from our host Tracey, she had left us milk a bottle of wine also flowers and 3 lovely Easter eggs , such a nice touch. The bungalow was spotless and well maintained and is very well equipped all you need is to buy food for your stay. There is plenty of tourist literature available to help you make the most of your stay. After a long day exploring the area it was nice to return home to relax at No 31 in its tranquil location. I don’t think you will find a more quiet relaxing property in the Dales. Hope we may be able to return in the future.
Delightful, relaxing, everything you could want or need.
We had a perfect, relaxing stay in this wonderful house in Derbyshire. Tracey was a fantastic host, and ensured that we had everything we needed. Attention to detail really made the cottage stand out, right down to the beautiful flowers, welcome basket with Chocolates, jam and proper coffee plus she left us milk and a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge. It was cozy and warm with very comfortable beds and a great living space. Overall, we were very impressed and couldn’t fault our stay. No 31 was perfect, would definitely return!
A comfortable well equipped bungalow.
The property is in a quiet area just out of town, it is walkable if you have good mobility & don’t mind the hills. The bungalow is very well equipped & we were welcomed by Tracey & given all the information of the area we could wish for. A good find.
A lovely clean, comfortable well equipped bungalow, warm, good beds & a private garden, a good find.
We had a lovely stay at the bungalow,Tracey was welcoming & there was all the information for Belper & surrounding area we could wish for. The town centre is pleasant with the usual shops but also an assortment of specialist shops.The luxury treats were enjoyed,for once it lived up to my expectations, we’ll be back.
A Tranquil & Perfect Stay
We spent just a week at No 31 (wish it could have been longer!) and were SO happy. The property isn’t your traditional stone cottage but hey who cares, it was far far better than most of the cottages we have stayed in previously, one being able to park on the drive, knowing we didn’t have to do battle at the end of our day out and being stressed at having to find a suitable parking space like some cottages we have stayed in previously, this to us is one of the many things that made our holiday. it was perfect and could not be more ‘home-from-home’.
Guest service from Tracey, the owner of No 31, was fantastic. She was very efficient and thorough with all communication via email, she even sent us a location map, and text and was very pleased to offer assistance if required. On the day of arrival we were warmly greeted and given a guided tour. We were delighted to be given a “Welcome” basket of goodies including beautiful flowers, Chocolates, Jam and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge and more. There was even 4 pints milk in the fridge so we could make a hot drink (with the tea and coffee provided) and settle in before needing to go out shopping. She was very obliging and happy to help.
My wife and I absolutely loved the property, a little gem of a find, It has been tastefully furnished and were delighted to find that it looks even nicer and is more spacious when inside than it looks in the photos. The lounge is bright and airy. Tracey really has thought of everything that guests may need, there has been so much thought put in to equipping the cottage and attention to detail everything you need and more. The garden is also a wonderful space and very private for us to sit out in (table and chairs provided) and take in the peace and quiet. There are lovely walks at the back, the views are superb. It is very tranquil.
In terms of self-catering, because the kitchen is so well equipped you could really choose a variety of things to cook and you’d highly likely find all the utensils etc you needed to cook/prepare it. Plus my wife loved the Denby.
We were very lucky with the weather but should you need to/choose to stay in there is lots to do. A selection of magazines/ bookcase of books/games for various ages/ a tv, dvd and video player (bring your own DVD’s). Having wifi was also a big bonus, great connection.
As you can tell from our review we really enjoyed our stay at No 31.
Thank you so much Tracey for our wonderful stay.
Lovely bungalow, very comfortable, fantastic welcome.
This is a nice 2 bedroom bungalow on the outskirts of Belper. The bungalow is very well equipped with lots of little extras which make the holiday special. There is a fantastic amount of tourist literature to help you make the most of your stay. The welcome card, flowers and chocolates were nice touches.
Home away from home
Tracey was a wonderful host . We were a family with a 16month old and Tracey had a cot and highchair and many toys for her to enjoy! There is a park around the corner and the neighbourhood is quiet. We felt very welcome and settled in easily. We were welcomed with flowers, chocolate, and even milk to make a cuppa! The beds were comfy and much appreciated. There is nothing negative to say, only good things. We hope to return again !
Wow!! From Start to Finish this has been brilliant. Tracy and Andy are fantastic owners.The property was spotless and well maintained. Extremely quite area,which was brilliant. Lovely local walks within Belper,Matlock and Bakewell. Fantastic sites and many photographic opportunities.. A stunning area.. Recommend … We will return..
Love this…a lot!!
Brilliant. Well Done to Both Tracy and Andy for a fantastic property. Clean and extremely tidy with everything you require…( really comfortable beds).. So quiet…and relaxing.. Many Thanks Xx
We had a wonderful week stay here, Tracey has thought about everything and particularly people’s comfort. The bungalow had everything and more! We are sad to leave! We have been to stay in many places where we haven’t been keen or comfortable to go back to, but we all loved the bungalow and it’s home from home feeling. Tracey has made a lovely holiday home with something a little more special than any others. We couldn’t believe how much there is to do and see, we couldn’t get it all done in a week, so it’s a perfect excuse to come back!! Having nice homely self catering accommodation is often difficult to find, particularly as our son who has autism finds many places difficult to relax, he absolutely loves no 31 and that’s quite a big deal! Highly recommend that this holiday bungalow is a perfect getaway for families touched by autism, it’s relaxing, safe and has plenty to do or not to do, if desired! I can see it’s a popular holiday accommodation but I would suggest that the National Autistic Society are aware of this accommodation to recommend on their website. It’s an ideal holiday. We can’t wait to come back, and are sad to leave today! Tracey thank you so much, you have been so lovely and helpful from booking to the actual holiday. Best of wishes for the future and we hope to come and stay again in the future, it’s a relief to know there’s somewhere we are confident to go for a holiday, that’s also a big deal for us xxxx
Home From Home
A beautiful bungalow in Belper with a secluded back garden. It is equipped with everything you need for a fabulous stay. Tracey met us and made us feel so welcome. She gave us a tour around the bungalow and explained everything that we needed to know. There were lovely touches like a welcome card, a vase of fresh flowers, sweets, chocolate, a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and very well presented. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed visiting Hardwick Hall, Bakewell, Calke Abbey, Denby Factory and the Outlet Village at Junction 28. We could recommend this bungalow to anyone and we definitely hope to return again in the future.
Fabulous, well equiped holiday home
No 31 Belper ticks all the boxes for us. That’s why we returned for a second visit and hope to be back again. The house is comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean. The owner goes to great lengths to make her guests welcome. The house is well situated to explore Derbyshire. The rear garden is quiet and secluded, a lovely relaxing place to enjoy a glass of wine in the summer sun
A wonderful home from home
A beautiful, comfortable, clean, and fully equipped bungalow in a peaceful location. Ideally situated in the town of Belper with all essentials close by, including rail and bus links. Highly recommend Cafe G for a breakfast and The Lion Hotel for meals. Thank you Tracey for the warm welcome and lovely gifts. Tracey also helped to make our daughter’s graduation extra special. We definitely plan on returning in the foreseeable future!
Very nice and comfortable bungalow
Very nicely situated for exploring the Derbyshire dales and the surprising historic town of Belper amazing place !
A Warm Welcome
We really enjoyed our stay in this well equipped and spotlessly clean bungalow. It had everything you needed for a restful holiday and the chocolates, wine, flowers and milk were a nice touch. Tracey greeted us and she was always contactable if we had any queries. The town of Belper is interesting and the North Mill and Riverside Gardens are well worth a visit.. There are plenty of other places to visit less than an hour’s drive away. Would recommend 31 Belper for a restful break.
We have recently had a second wonderful stay in this most fantastic holiday let. From the moment you are met by the owner you know you have chosen a great place to stay. The welcome is beyond compare, very friendly and informative. Nothing is too much trouble. All you need is your food and your clothes. Everything else you need is provided, in this very well equipped accommodation. If you are thinking of booking, don’t hesitate, you wont be disappointed.
Excellent accommodation with everything that you could possibly need.
We found the accommodation was exceptionally well presented with everything and more than usual provided. A very comfortable home that was a pleasure to return to each evening after a day out sight seeing. Thank you to Tracey for the trouble she goes. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to stay in the Derbyshire area.
Lovely bungalow in a peaceful location
This is our second stay at this lovely bungalow. We were met by the friendly owners who had provided a chilled bottle of wine, a box of chocolates and a beautiful spring bunch of flowers (they had also given us some Easter Eggs which was a lovely thought). The bungalow is stocked with everything you would need for a holiday. The homely touches are everywhere from the soap and toilet rolls to the large selection of teas and coffees. There is no need to bring bedding or towels. Each room is decorated to a high standard and it is spotlessly clean. The town of Belper is a short drive away with an Aldi and Morrisons and a pretty high street. It also has a vintage cinema which is worth a visit and an excellent fish and chip shop. There are plenty of places to visit in the area. We went to Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath, Sheffield on the train and the McArthur Glenn shopping centre. To finish I would recommend a stay at this accommodation.
Very comfortable accommodation close to the little town of Belper with every thing needed for a visit to Derbyshire.
“Peaceful, Spotless and Cosy Home from Home”
Stayed here recently with my husband, in all honesty I can’t find anything negative to say. It’s bright and light, very well equipped, spotlessly clean (in fact it is the cleanest accommodation we have ever stayed in). Small necessities such as kitchen foil, clingfilm, dish washer tabs, washing liquid, hand soap etc were available which makes such a difference. The welcome flowers were beautiful and the chocs tasty. It really is a home from home, with excellent broadband facility which was important to us.
“Fantastic winter stop over”
Just finished our winter stop over in this well equipped home Tracey was an ideal host supplying everything you could ask for second stay in last 3 years if anything this stay was even better than our last which was superb
Home from home
An excellent place to spend time in. Tracey has provided a beautiful home from home with everything you could want or need. A wonderful part of the country with lots of places to visit. Would absolutely recommend this property for couples and families.
Home from Home
Great self catering accommodation in Belper convenient for the Derbyshire Peak District. A very warm welcome from Tracey who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we could possibly need for our months stay.The bungalow is certainly big enough for two or two couples, with off road parking in a very quiet location.Each room is well equipped, especially the kitchen, so lovely to see Denby pottery and plenty, not just the bare minimum as you usually find in self catering accommodation. The towels are plentiful,and soft and fluffy,and the beds and bedding are all good quality.I would definitely recommend and wouldn’t hesitate in re booking.
“A real home from home”
I recently spent five weeks at No 31 after I was temporarily relocated by my insurance company.
Everything was spotlessly clean and exactly as the photographs show. The description is also completely accurate and the reviews say it all.
The bungalow is very homely and I was very comfortable during my stay. The king size bed was so comfy that I have bought the same one now I’m back home!
Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes.
Perfect location, perfect accommodation = perfect holiday
We were welcomed by Tracey & Andy who gave a quick overview of the property and handed over the keys. They had left us some lovely welcome gifts, which went down a treat!! The bungalow is very well equipped from the kitchen to the bathroom. The kitchen is stacked with crockery, cutlery, pots & pans as well as all the mod cons of washing machine, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc. The bathroom has enough towels to be able to use one every hour and still not run out, along with lovely soaps etc. The king size bedroom has the comfiest bed with a big thick warm duvet and plenty of storage space for clothes. We did not use the double room but it was just as well equipped. The lounge was really comfortable with a sofa each and a big flat screen tv. There were leaflets and guides galore so you will never be stuck for a place to go. The house is so warm and welcoming that we felt so much at home. It is ideally located for getting out and about and we went to many of the surrounding towns and villages, sampled lots of gorgeous food and bought many souvenirs. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family.
Lovely house, very well equipped
Our stay at this cottage was lovely. The welcome pack was very generous and we found the cottage to be the most well equipped we have stayed in. For example, the owner provided baby shampoo and bath toys as she knew we had a young son – there were lots of really thoughtful touches. The bungalow is very comfortable and has everything you need, even WIFI. There is lots of information about things to do in the area and we found there was loads to do. For those with kids there is a playground just round the corner too. Thank you Tracey we had a lovely time.
Fantastic holiday stay in Derbyshire
Just enjoyed a wonderful 11 night stay in this lovely bungalow situated in a quiet residential area of Belper. The owners met us on arrival, explained everything and left flowers, chocolates and essentials to ensure our holiday got off to the perfect start. The bungalow was spotlessly clean, had a lovely private garden and was well stocked with everything you needed for a self catering break including lots of utensils, towels and information booklets. Belper is a lovely town close to the Dales and other areas such as Matlock, Bakewell and of course Derby. Would highly recommend this rental and would stay again on our next trip to Derbyshire.
A very well-equipped home with everything we needed provided. The pretty and private garden was safe for our grandson. On top of a hill, walk able into town for the energetic but there is also an hourly daytime bus from the end of the road. Tracey made us welcome and responded quickly to our queries. Extremely comfortable bed and very quiet area.
“Superb. Owner makes sure the bungalow is perfect”
Extremely comfortable property . The owner clearly puts a lot of effort looking after the bungalow and the guests who stay there . Everything was superb.
“Wonderful, Fab, you will NOT be disappointed!”
Just back from our second stay at No 31. Its a delightful home from home. You will find everything you need here from the kitchen that is so well equipped and was a pleasure to cook in to the hair dryer tucked in the dressing table drawer, which so many owners forget to provide. A lovely welcome card, chocolates and freshly cut flowers in the vase greeted us with plenty of tea and coffee on arrival Tracey even provides the milk. A good selection of games, books, guides and maps for the area plus the owners knowledge of the best places to go walking and pointers for the best places to eat. There are lots of nice country walks straight from the door and the view at the back is to die for, Beautiful private garden, i love this garden it’s so peaceful. Immaculately clean, comfy sofa’s and beds with gorgeous linen and plenty of fluffy towels… I could go on and on. Tracey the owner is friendly and will be ready with a warm welcome and thank you for another truly relaxing break. This will not be our last stay, i’m always recommending this place to friends and family. If you are still trying to decide if this is the holiday house for you… IT IS PERFECT therefore, it is!
“Excellent holiday home”
Everything about No 31 was perfect.kitchen well equiped,beds comfortable,bed linen and furnishings lovely. owner ensured our holiday was a great experience
“Great property for a visit to Derbyshire”
This property is very comfortable and a well equipped little jewel, Belper is a good central point to visit Derbyshire dales and the Peak district. The property is in a very quiet location close to town center with a lovely enclosed rear garden.
This was a well positioned, quiet, excellently equipped, clean and tidy bungalow and was just perfect for us. The owners greeted us warmly and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.
“Fantastic, what more can one say…”
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. A welcome you can normally only dream of. We were personally greeted and shown around by the owners. Fresh flowers, chocolates, milk, wine, tea and coffee were just a few of the lovely things provided for us. Everything has been thought of that you may need, even foil, cling film and rubber gloves. Never before have we stayed in such a clean holiday let, which smelt so clean and fresh. Lovely bedding and very comfortable beds. Loads of soft fluffy towels. Positioned in a quiet close we hardly heard any noise, other than the birds singing. The swing and slide around the corner was greatly enjoyed by our child, whilst we enjoyed the views of the countryside. We had organised a shopping delivery so we didn’t have to worry about grocery shopping which was a great success. No 31 is perfectly placed to explore all Derbyshire has to offer. Our visit to the local cotton mill was highly enjoyable, and the Denby pottery village, just a few miles away, is also worth a visit. We will definitely be returning to this amazing property.
“Warmest welcome we have ever received from a rental”
Beautiful flowers, chocolates and a welcome card were here to greet us. The bungalow was exactly as described and was very clean and well presented. Found an excellent farm shop in Duffield and ate at a lovely Italian… Angelos at the New Inn .
“Our second visit ~ so we knew it would be excellent.”
We once again spent a very enjoyable week at the bungalow. The property is in a lovely neighbourhood which is also quiet, peaceful and perfectly placed for all amenities and places of interest to visit. We were exceptionally comfortable, with all needs catered for…….and more. The owners of the property have thought of absolutely everything to make a holiday perfect. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone wishing for a home-from-home break away.
“Excellent would definitely recommend”
We were very warmly welcomed by the owners who had also left us lots of treats such as flowers, chocolates, wine and essentials e.g milk, “bon maman” jam which is poignant to us as we live in France and lots of other nice things. The cottage is very well stocked with everything you could ever need. It is very comfortable including the beds and lovely and warm being February it was very cold outside so it was a pleasure going back there after a day of exploring. It is also in a nice quiet spot but just outside the town of Belper so you have everything on your doorstep. I am really pleased I chose it for our stay in Derbyshire.
“charming property with everything you need”
a delightful host who is helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and options for visits. the property is very well equipped, clean and quiet, you can’t go wrong.…
“Superb, home from home stay”
From the moment we arrived, Tracey greeted us warmly. We were impressed by the extra touches, beautiful flowers, chocolates, wine and a personal welcome card. In addition there were plenty supplies including milk, coffee and other basics. The whole house is exceptionally well equipped from the cosy lounge, comfy beds and soft towels. The kitchen has everything needed and more. The whole place was spotless.
The house is situated in a quiet culdesac yet a short distance from Belper town. It is ideally situated for exploring the many sites in this lovely region.
There is a wealth of information provided by Tracey along with maps, eating places etc. There are games, tv, wifi…a real home from home. I could go on….suffice to say we will return.
“One of the very best”
This really is a lovely house. My husband and I have stayed in many self-catering houses, some truly dreadful and some really excellent. No 31 is up there with the very best of them. It is obvious that Tracey has put a lot of thought and love into making it a home from home for her guests. Absolutely everything you could ask for is provided and is top quality. The towels are soft and fluffy and plenty of them, the bedding is warm and comfortable and there is ample storage space for clothing and food etc. The rooms are all of a good size, comfortable and well appointed. The water heating system is good and simple to use, as is the microwave (usually you need a degree to use them). We loved the welcome pack so very thoughtful, it was so nice to be able to sit down and have a cuppa after our long journey with the ample tea, coffee and milk that Tracey had provided us with another thoughtful touch (so often missed by owners) The house was spotlessly clean and we respected this by leaving it the same way. All in all the house is everything that you could wish for and more. We tried The Talbot Inn and a place in town called Nourish No 44 both recommended by Tracey both had good atmosphere’s, friendly staff, excellent food and good service. In summary, No 31 is somewhere that I will recommend to family and friends and, as my husband and I are regular visitors to Derbyshire, will certainly return to.
“Beautiful little place”
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was clean, very well equipped and had a nice garden as well. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood. Belper is a nice town and a good place to explore the peak district from.
“Everything we hoped for, and more”
This cottage in Belper was a sheer delight with beautifully tasteful furnishings and every convenience we could have wanted. Everything worked well and the house was super clean and very well looked after. Just a few minutes drive from the middle of town makes it very convenient too. Tracey, the owner, added so many personal touches which also made our stay a memorable one. Well worth it!!!
“Lovely, comfortable and peaceful accommodation.”
The cottage is very well equipped with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. We always use self catering accommodation and this is the best we have stayed in. It is in a peaceful location with lovely walks on the doorstep but still very close to all amenities. There is lots to do in the vicinity; good shopping, National Trust properties, nice restaurants and beautiful countryside.
