A perfect location to explore the local area and a lovely cottage to stay in, plenty of quirky character. I was mildly concerned about the parking before our stay but never had an issue, always seemed to be spaces available, maybe not outside the door but never far. The garden was a blessing, our Lakeland loved it, especially the pears!

Great location in historic village. Cottage is large enough, but layout slightly awkward with steep stairs and twists and turns to get through. Lovely sunny cottage garden at the back and very reasonably priced local pub on the corner. Price/quality ratio on the whole great.

All fine other than the position of the garden, which needs to be made more clear on the webpage. You cannot let your dogs out directly from the back door. It wasn't a problem, but it should be included in the details, and also the back door didn't close properly which would be an issue for a family with young children.

Arkwright cottage is as we expected for an old mill workers cottage, not that spacious downstairs and a higgledy piggledy layout but saying that it was clean and fairly comfortable. The location was ok, within walking distance to the village but be warned it is very noisy with the constant rumbling of quarry trucks and motorbikes. Some lovely walksRead more along the canal at the wharf and Arkwrights mill is worth a visit. A meal at the Boat inn is recommended as is the chocolate shop in the village. Hide

Lovely cottage in great location. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well equipped and leaflets on the area were a nice touch as well as the milk, biscuits tea coffee etc. As other guests have said, there are lots of steep stairs but they also add to the charm of the place. The little, sunny garden was a delight. There are lots of good walks around CRead moreromford particularly those that link up with the local train service. Wirksworth is well worth a visit as if the National Stone Centre. Hide

The cottage is in a great location to visit many attractions in the Peak District and it has a lovely little garden which we did not mind walking across a path to get to. It could do with refreshing and a little more consideration to making holiday goers feel relaxed like a spare key or better still new Yale locks and better lighting.
