An idyllic development in the heart of the Derwent Valley
Our Cupola development is in an idyllic location in the Derwent Valley, with miles of country walks to explore. The pretty town of Crich is only 5 minutes away offering everything you could need and there are good public transport links from the development for easy access to the local towns and villages.
The Peak District National Park is nearby, home to acres and acres of rolling hills and thick woodland, ducking in and out of quaint, traditional villages and towns along the way. Here you’ll find scores of trails to explore at your own pace. Providing just a portion of the grandiose Peak District, Upper Derwent Valley is home to a series of dams and waterways which have helped to put the region on the map. This section of the National Park is absolutely idyllic. It’s carefully preserved, and perfect for anyone who will be looking for a waterside walk or two. It also has a handful of cycle trails, too, meaning if you’d prefer to traverse the area on two wheels, you’re free to do so.
If the wide-open Peak District doesn't appeal to you, maybe you'd prefer a woodland ramble or two. The Matlock Moors take up a huge expanse of almost 1,200 acres, and within them, you'll find seven different woodland areas to explore. There is always going to be something new for you to explore here!
Elsewhere in Matlock, you will find the historically important Lumsdale Valley. Here, amongst lush, green thickets, you will be able to spy the region's beloved and ancient water mills, carefully preserved by local volunteers. It is regarded as extremely important by the archaeological community.
The bustling city of Derby is only 25 minutes away from the development offering a wide selection of shops, restaurants and pubs as well as museums and art galleries to explore.
Cupola is perfect for anyone who wants to break free from the hectic hustle and bustle of everyday life. That’s why it is often such a great spot for people to retire to!
