“Worth another visit”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is a very nicely appointed cottage with generally well thought out facilities. The bathrooms are pretty luxurious, the kitchen large and well equipped; 2 ovens, large fridge (with odd beep?) smallish freezer compartment, though only 1 kettle, make sure you press ok on the ovens to get them started! Beds very comfy, plenty of space in the bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms. Parking out front, we got 5 cars on, you might squeeze another on at a push, but there are also spaces on the road.
The owners made us a Victoria sponge which was nice, and left us a bit of tea and coffee to get us started. Oddly, this was also the arrangement with loo roll; just one in each toilet and no further left. We'd have preferred a full supply of that to the cake in honesty.
We didn't pay the extra charge (£200) for the hot tub, and it wasn't really the weather, so we didn't miss it.
There was a problem with the heating which was dealt with very promptly. Communication in general with the owners was very good throughout the booking process.
It was clean enough, but not spotless. No wifi which seems odd these days, but we didn't miss it, and people have phone data for 'emergencies' ;)
Nice view from the living room, bit industrial in the immediate vicinity, but nice hillside beyond.
Walking distance to Morrisons and Belper town centre.
Full run down of the layout; we had to enquire for this to decide suitability for certain guests.
At front door level, large kitchen/diner and living/dining room. A 2 bed room with en suite wet room shower. A cloakroom with washing machine, so this was the toilet we all used during the day.
Stairs up from the living room to two 3 bed rooms and a bathroom with toilet (no shower)
Downstairs from the hallway, a 2 bed room, a 3 bed room with en suite shower wetroom (possibly toilet too, can't remember) and a bathroom with shower and toilet.
Down a few stairs, a door to outside and a 2 bed room with French doors out onto the decking. This room has a high ceiling and 2 outside walls and this all combined to mean that, even with the heating sorted, this was the coolish room.
These 7 downstairs bedrooms all have the living room/kitchen floors as their ceiling so if your party retires at different times, the night owls would be better in these rooms. The flooring is all laminate, so all noise in the living area can be heard loud and clear downstairs!
The sofas were very deep and loungey with cushions for backs and they've seen better days. As the capacity of the cottage is 15, assume the largest 2 sofas are 4 seaters, but that'd be a bit of a squeeze. There's also a cottage suite with a couple of high backed chairs and of course all the dining chairs.
Overall, does what you need for a big group stay, and we'll probably be back, and arrange slightly better for our members now we know what's what.

The property was excellent and covered all our needs. Well done to the owners. We had a brilliant weekend. The dogs loved it. The property was well equipped for us to cater for our evening birthday meal.

“Great house, comfy, spacious, views & facilities”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Used the house for extended family staying for our wedding, 12 people stayed together and didn't trip over each other for a week, lots of space even more so than the pics show , nice outside place with good parking, good levels of equipment and things you need for home from home but not to personalised, large dining and living area with a nice atmosphere to the building. Nice views across the Chevin. Would recommend or use again, owners easy to deal with and flexible.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Visited as a party of 12 ladies on a hen do. From the very start of the booking process Jack was so helpful - answering all of my questions really quickly. When we got to the property, Jack met us with a homemade cake and some milk to start us off - a nice touch. The property was clean and very well appointed, there was comfortably enough rooms and bathrooms for all 12 of us. The view from the decking is superb and, of course, the hot tub was fabulous.
All of us had a fantastic weekend - thank you!

“Lovely lodge in great location for a weekend in the country!”

I would thoroughly recommend Chevin view to any large party looking for a weekend away in the Derbyshire countryside! Paul and his team were very welcoming and it's a nice touch to be shown around the property when you arrive - and an even nicer one to have a cake ready for you on arrival! The property doesn't look large from the outside but this is deceiving as it's really well laid out inside and the kitchen and living room in particular are nice communal areas. The hot tub and decking area really was an added bonus and as part of a hen party it was lovely to be able to spend the afternoon relaxing in the sun in there! All stages of the booking process were thorough and response times were also really quick; can't recommend highly enough!
