Are you looking for a pleasant room in a location that’s handy for the city of Derby and for major road links?

In this peaceful home in Darley Abbey, Derby, you would be sharing facilities, including a spacious kitchen, with one considerate person, myself. My name is Claire, your host; I'm friendly, helpful and welcoming, however I’ll fully respect your privacy and space.

You’d be able to make morning tea and coffee in your room. The bathroom with shower is next to the room. Your preferred times to use the bathroom and kitchen would be fitted around as much as possible.

The house has on-street parking close by. Our location is handy for the A6, A38 and A52. Darley Abbey is an attractive villagey area and is near a regular bus route into Derby. Walking from here is easy too. It is 20 minutes walk to Derby University, and 30 minutes walk to the city centre, either through the streets or with the option of a good river path all the way. 

In Darley Abbey we have a village shop open early till late; a pub with meals; and a big green space by the river Derwent.

I am looking for a professional and considerate working person for this Monday-to-Friday stay. Not working from home - thank you. 

Linen, towels, cleaning and bills are all included. 

No washing machine or clothes washing facilities are available, sorry.

Short or long stays are possible. Please contact to ask about dates. I look forward to hearing from you.

Transport nearby

From Darley Abbey by car you are near the A6, the A38 and the A52.
You can get the bus into Derby city centre using the Transpeak or the Sixes bus routes which go down the nearby A6. You can also walk into the city centre in about 30 minutes, either through the streets or along a good path beside the river Derwent (this is also a bike path) .
To travel by train, you can drive to Derby station, which is just slightly south of the town centre. There are charges for parking at the station, with long stay and short stay car parks.
Road travel at peak times to and from the city centre can be congested, unfortunately.
You can also reach the rail station by taking the bus into the town centre and then a 10-15 minute walk. Or you can walk to the station from Darley Abbey; using the river walk, this takes about 45 minutes. Leave the river path at Railway Terrace and you're five minutes from the station. Walking to the station through the streets also takes about 45 minutes.
If you're wanting to travel away from town and out into Derbyshire using the A6, there are regular buses (the Sixes). To go to Matlock and Bakewell, use the hourly 6.1 bus. To go even further, to Buxton, use the hourly Transpeak bus. Naturally you can also drive to these places.

Describe your neighbourhood here

Darley Abbey is a peaceful and picturesque part of Derby with a village-like feel. The well-stocked Darley Abbey Village Shop is open early until late. The Broadway pub serves meals and is about 15 minutes walk away. In the historic Mills area, 10-15 minutes walk, you can find Lorentes tapas restaurant.
We have the attractive Darley Park and a footpath by the river Derwent nearby. A pedestrian bridge takes you over the river to Darley Abbey Mills – part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. A bit further away in the other direction is beautiful Markeaton Park, near Derby University. A big advantage of Darley Abbey is its location – it's easy to reach so many places from here.
However Darley Abbey is not a shopping destination! For shops, visit the big Derbion shopping centre in the centre of Derby.
PS There are two other food shops slightly further away: Little Waitrose at Shell petrol station next to Park Lane, DE22 - on the A6 just north of Darley Abbey; and Asda Express at the Texaco petrol station - on the A6 Duffield Road just north of the city centre.
