This cottage is in the grounds of a former mill in New Mills and can sleep six people in three bedrooms

The Clocking In House is a superb cottage in the grounds of a Grade II* listed former mill on the River Goyt, just on the edge of the Derbyshire town of New Mills. The cottage sleeps six people and has two first floor double bedrooms (accessed by an external staircase) and another on the ground floor, along with two family bathrooms. Also in the cottage is an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area.

Outside is off road parking and access to the river and a myriad of walks. The Clocking In House is a superb holiday home in an historic building set in a magnificent location.


We stayed at the property in July with friends. The location is great. If we hadn't been meeting friends we would have left after the first night. As previous reviewer stated, upstairs was lovely, but it needed a clean. Downstairs was also badly in need of a clean. The worst part for us was a smell downstairs which wasn't pleasant. The sofas stank, and were filthy. Thankfully we were able to sit outside for 2 of our three nights. I have photos of cobwebs (yes, it is an old mill and spiders are natural) around the cooker and in the bedrooms, hair in the plug hole (thought the drainage was poor). Found makeup on the pillowcase, and there were utensils in the kitchen still with food in them. The dust from the bedroom surfaces aggravated our chests for days. Sorry, but there was no excuse for the experience we had when we paid so much money.

Plenty of space
Handy location to walk to the shops. The small road to the access road leading to the property unfortunately has huge craters (I know that's nothing to do with the property but don't bring your lowered sports car ;D). The upstairs section of the property is absolutely lovely, the bathroom is great, lovely shower and the bed we used was comfy. A couple of coat hooks would be handy. However, the downstairs has an awful concrete floor (presumably to keep the feel of it previously being a clocking in building) so bring some slippers. I couldn't sit on the leather sofa because it stank of cigarettes. The wifi worked well (although it had no password), which was handy as the (huge :) ) tv didn't always have a clear signal. Had a small dishwasher but only one tablet provided for 4 days. Teatowels, cleaning products, really nice handsoap provided and plenty of utensils and pans etc in the kitchen which was great. Also a good selection of knives which is usually a self catering downfall! The oven and extractor work well (sounds daft but so many holiday lets have awful ovens!). The outside seating is nice and also spacious.

The location was unique, the family loved the walks and shops. The cottage was warm and clean, with plenty of space and excellent comfortable beds and settees. The welcome was excellent and really helpful.

The location is very quiet but very atmospheric and seconds away from beautiful river walks. We really liked how the restoration had been done; still old fashioned, still able to see the original layout and functions, and much of the furniture is of its period but the bits that mattered were up to date, so the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the showers were good. A very comfortable, cosy house.
