Townhead Farmhouse b and b in Matlock

At first appearance Bonsall, near Matlock, is a small quiet village, and indeed at night your sleep will be disturbed by nothing more than the hoot of an owl or lowing of a cow.  In the daytime however you will find a huge range of activities with lots of walking paths following the old lead mining routes. Wonderful cycling along the trails and visits to the local attractions of Cromford Mills, The Heights of Abraham, Gullivers Kingdom The Tramway Museum at Crich and the magnificent houses of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Kedleston to name a few. The great thing is that nothing is very far away.

We have 2 great pubs in the village offering food and often music and other entertainment.  There is also a wonderful cafe with a small deli - perfect for picking up a bottle of wine, lunch or the morning papers.

We have lived here for nearly 6 years now and we have tried to make Townhead just what we expect from a B&B.  The house oozes with character, but has newly fitted bathrooms with heated floors and modern showers, comfy beds and of course a wonderful AGA cooked breakfast with locally sourced ingredients.  There are places for you to sit both inside and out and enjoy soaking up the view.

We love living in this delightful friendly village and hope that you will enjoy it too.

We share our home with our delightful Springer Spaniel - Monty.

This year we have purchased an electric car as part of our green credentials. (We also have solar panels).  We have a charger that can be used for a small fee if you have one too.  Please ask
