A charming detached stone property which is nestled in the owner’s spacious grounds, enjoying a hillside position with far-reaching views across the valley and surrounding countryside.

The kitchen-diner is fully equipped with all the necessities that guests require during their stay, and the lounge area with its exposed wood beams provides a lovely space for relaxing after a day spent outdoors. There is a charming log burning stove which is a central feature of the room and creates an enchanting ambience for a cosy night in.

Upstairs there is a wonderful gallery style bedroom which contains a double bed. There is also an adjoining bathroom which consists of a shower, toilet and hand basin. The windows perfectly frame the breathtaking views across the valley and surrounding landscape, ensuring that the vistas cannot go unnoticed.

The cottage was lovely and cosy, the perfect size for two and a dog. The cooking facilities were very good (oven, touch hob, lots of good pots and pans etc.) We enjoyed the variety of circuit walks on the door step. To get into Wirksworth its a very pretty walk through the fields, which was ideal for food shopping. Wirksworth has a very useful & weRead morell stocked co-op, as well as a nice little butchers, and lots of pubs. The Peak district is a short drive away, along nice country roads. Hide

The location is absolutely stunning, the views are amazing. We took our dog and there were some beautiful walks. We have a 4x4 which was great for some of the steep and narrow roads around the village. The cottage its self was very clean, cosy and had everything we needed. The host was great and the little extras made the holiday special

A well equipped cosy cottage thats perfect for couples/singles. Though its a small property, its laid out well so that it feels spacious. We found the location to be perfect - away from the hustle and bustle but within walkable distance to amenities (and only a 15 min drive to Matlock). The owners of the property are great - very helpful and friendRead morely when it comes to local knowledge if needed. Compared to nearby hotels, this cottage was good value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Hide
