This visually stunning and imposing early 19th century building was originally the Coach House and Stables for the nearby Owl Coaching Inn, (reputedly a haunt of highwayman Dick Turpin), thats now a fine old farm some half a mile from the historic Derwent valley mill town of Belper with its formal River Gardens (summer Sunday brass-bands!) and Visitor Centre.
The buildings fine stone exterior - with hand-cut lintels, vaulted coach-ways, mighty wrought-iron detailing - and its interior, which retains and highlights superb barrel-vaulted ceilings, cast-iron saddle-racks and unique arching cast-iron roof trusses; all these together emphasize the quality and historic importance of this Grade II Listed structure, which is now carefully transformed into a quality holiday residence.


Turpins Coach House overlooks a wooded dell and adjoins a 2-acre paddock and play field with ample parking, thats reached by steep steps (not suited to the infirm) running down from the Coach House stable yard. The Black Brook trout stream runs alongside the paddock, (children under supervision please), and fun fishing is welcome, subject to locally-obtainable River License.

  • Ground Floor Layout: Large quality kitchen with utility room off. Dining room and main lounge. Second lounge and games room with pool table on first floor.
  • 5 Bathrooms. Ground Floor: The bedroom has an adjoining bathroom and there is also a cloakroom on this floor. First Floor: 2 shower rooms with toilet and basin. Second Floor: 2 bathrooms with toilet, basin and shower tap.
  • Easier unloading at top of stable-yard drive, with disabled parking, large flag-stoned terrace, steep stone steps down to paddock, sun-deck & play-field with trout stream access. Sundeck area not accessible to wheel chairs.
