The cottage dates from around 1850 and is situated in the conservation area of Wirksworth. Designed for couples who want a homely base when exploring the Peak District National Park.

Wirksworth is a small market town situated just a few miles from Matlock and only 2 miles from the Peak District National Park. Explore nearby Carsington Water, Black Rocks and the High Peak Trail, which are accessible directly from the cottage for those who enjoy walking. The Wirksworth Festival, held each September, sees the town turned into an open gallery with access to artists’ houses and a programme of live music and entertainment. With an art deco independent cinema, Heritage Centre, a range of places to eat and some lively real ale pubs, there is plenty to entertain. The Ecclesbourne Valley heritage railway has a station in Wirksworth and the weekly market and monthly farmers' market provide local produce and crafts. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath, with its cable car.

The main entrance to the cottage is through the stable-style front door, into the cosy lounge with characterful stone fireplace and wood burning stove. There is a comfortable sofa, TV, DVD player and range of books and games to help you relax and unwind. Wander through to the adjoining kitchen equipped with electric oven and gas hob, microwave and fridge, perfect for rustling up a meal if the delights of town can’t tempt you. Enjoy lazy breakfasts at the dining table while planning the day’s activities ahead. From the kitchen, head up the steep stairs to the first floor to reach the bedroom with country pine furniture and double bed. The spacious bathroom offers an bath, separate shower and WC, catering to all your needs.

Leaving the cottage from the kitchen door takes you into one of the narrow paths of the Puzzle Gardens and gives access to the small garden through a shared gate. There is a table and chairs should the weather be kind enough to sit out. The cottage does not offer private parking yet parking can be found a short walk away.

A very quaint cottage with lots of character. It was fully equipped, even though some things had to be removed because of Covid. The location was brilliant for sightseeing and walking. We visited Carsington water, Chatsworth, the Tram museum, the Heights of Abraham and Bakewell. There are many great eating places nearby but you need to book at the Read moremoment due to Covid. As we couldn't get anywhere, we tried Le Mistral takeaway menu. It was brilliant. Ready on the dot and scrumptious. Hide

We had a lovely time staying in this gorgeous cottage. Very clean and comfortable and would definitely stay again. A perfect base for exploring the local countryside and relaxing after a long day's walk. We found parking a slight issue as recommended spaces were always taken. We instead parked on the left hand side of the road which could be difficRead moreult to climb in as it was so close to the wall. Nevertheless, we did always find somewhere to park. Would recommend this cottage to everyone! Hide

Charming cottage in attractive village. It was very clean, everything we needed was provided. Its at the top of a very steep hill. We found this a challenge. Otherwise delightful.
