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.

Whether you’re in the area to embrace challenging walks in the Peak District National Park or simply mosey around nearby market towns, the location of this property couldn’t be more perfect. An ideal bolthole for two to unwind, the cottage lends itself to a romantic getaway with plenty of options for activities a short walk or drive away. The cottage welcomes one dog making it the perfect base for a walking holiday with man’s best friend. Set off and discover the varied landscapes of the glorious Derbyshire countryside from here, exploring the ancient woodland and rugged moors of the famous Heart of England.

Compact and cosy, this barn conversion offers the perfect amount of space for two and a dog to call their own. The open-plan living space on the ground floor is kept cosy thanks to the wood burner. Throw a log on the fire and let the warm ambience fill the room as you prepare your meals, hopefully with some local produce picked up on your travels. Set atop a hill, this property boasts remarkable views from both its patio space outside and the galley bedroom on the first floor. We’ve no doubt you’ll never tire of waking up to that view each and every morning throughout your stay.

A short wander through a pretty meadow leads you to the market town of Wirksworth (1 mile), your go-to spot for picking up essentials, enjoying a pint of local cider or tucking into a meal at a restaurant. Adventurers will delight staying this close to the Carsington Water reservoir (3 miles), a place for fishing, water sports or perhaps just a circular walk. Nearby, you’ll find the Harborough Rocks (4 miles), well worth a visit before venturing into the Peak District itself (5.5 miles) to hike and bike to your heart’s content.

We made usRead moree of the many local walks from the doorstep and even walked to a pub or two. Shops & amenities were also numerous in the town. Loved it, would return. Hide
