A romantic bolthole for two, this one-bedroom cottage is an idyllic escape. It sits just outside the hillside village of Kirk Ireton and is surrounded by green fields and hills as far as the eye can see. The nearest town, Wirksworth, is 3 miles away and here you will find lots of picture-postcard buildings and narrow lanes full of history. There are also plenty of attractions including the Wirksworth Heritage Centre, The Northern Light Cinema and Bar, plus Alport Height – perfect for a romantic picnic with a view.

The property is set out all on one level. You enter the open-plan lounge/diner/kitchen with a vaulted beamed ceiling. Take a seat on one of the leather sofas, light the wood burner and settle in for a night in front of the TV/DVD. A compact, modern, fully equipped kitchen offers everything needed for a self-catering stay, while a table and four chairs offers the perfect spot to dine. The next room is the cosy bedroom with a wooden king-size bed, built-in hanging space and a chest of drawers. You then have the shower room with a spacious shower cubicle and WC.

The garden is a wonderful place to relax, with a lawn and table and chairs. The surrounding scenery is tranquil and full of nature.

The first thing that greeted us when we arrived at the Cottage was a wonderful view over the Rolling countryside. The Cottage was beyond our expectations.

Perfect cottage, spotlessly clean and the view is amazing. We have had a great holiday at Topshill, lots of walks and then lovely evenings relaxing in the cottage. Hosts are lovely and the welcome pack had a nice Easter surprise. Our spaniel was well catered for and found the local pheasants very entertaining.

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Topshill Cottage. The setting is idyllic, with beautiful views. The owners were so helpful and were always at the end of the phone with recommendations to ensure we had the best stay! The fireplace was such a lovely addition and made it really cosy in the evenings. We loved exploring the local footpaths andRead more also went further afield in to the Peak District for some gorgeous walks. We couldn't recommend this property more! Hide

The property was superb, the best we have ever stayed in, don't tell everyone as we intend to return next year.

Excellent cottage. They were happy to offer 3pm arrival time (which we were grateful for, but didn't request it due to explicit instructions from Derby Cottages).

Great shower, and lovely to have a fully-equipped kitchen. Quick broadband too. Very helpful to have a little private area to let the dog out into, last thing at night. It was also really nice to have a private bit of garden, rather than being overlooked as often happens with barn conversions. All in all we'd be very happy to recommend it and loved the cottage and the area. Thank you! Hide
