An imaginatively converted former chapel, this stylishly updated property makes a fantastic getaway for two guests. Positioned along the southern edge of the Peak District, this delightful hideaway is a wonderful romantic retreat for couples exploring the spellbinding Derbyshire countryside.

The dining table is perfect for sharing a romantic meal for two which you can enjoy cooking in the lovely kitchen. The impressive spiral staircase leads up to the mezzanine bedroom which has a cosy super-king-size bed, an attractive chandelier and beautiful exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling. There’s also a contemporary en-suite bathroom with his and hers sinks and a shower over the double spa bath. Outside, a small courtyard provides a pleasant spot for a morning coffee as you plan the day’s adventures.

Stunning property - loved the exposed beams, the space and spa bath in particular. The welcome basket was generous and the festive touches were greatly appreciated as this was our home away from home over Christmas! Cant recommend enough!

Fabulous location and property. The Chapel has quirky elements but also very modern. Welcome pack is an excellent bonus. The place is so close to many landmark areas. I would highly recommend. I am now trying to incorporate inside the chapel decor into my house as its so fresh and tastefully done.

Lovely cottage with many premium features, spotlessly clean and modern with all you would expect and need in a kitchen and living area but the real features are up the spiral staircase on the mezzanine level, with the huge bed and wonderful bath/ bathroom

Fantastic renovation very tastefully appointed. Couldn't be happier with the cleanliness or the little touches the owners provided upon our arrival. Wirksworth is indeed a gem of a location and this accomodation provided an excellent base for our walking trips out.

We had a lovely stay at the Chapel. The accomodation was super clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we could want. On arrival we recieved a thougtful and lovely welcome hamper, which made our stay extra special. The location was ideal as its less than a 5 min walk to the main village centre. Great pubs and restaurants to eat at and quirkRead morey shops to visit whist in Wirksworth. Not far from other attractions either. Fantastic holiday all round! Hide

This accommodation is of excellent quality with everything needed for a holiday base, the complimentary basket with various items was really appreciated along with the milk in the fridge and the bottle of wine.
