Perfect for families and friends, this former silk mill has been styled with an eye for detail and offers a fantastic place to call home when visiting the Peak District.

This impressive abode is ideal for families and friendship groups seeking adventures galore across the Peak District National Park. Set across three floors in a reverse-level style and equipped with storage space for muddy boots and coats, this stylish bolthole is situated within the ancient village of Wirksworth, 4.5 miles from Matlock. With the rolling hills and rugged open moorland on your doorstep, you’ll soon be navigating exciting trails and returning to soak in your private hot tub under the stars.

Quintessential and charming, your accommodation (reached via a few steps) is everything you would expect from a classic Peak District property. Vaulted ceilings with characterful timber frames and mellow stone walls provide the old-world feel, but everything else is elegant and contemporary including the tasteful furniture and array of home comforts. Whether you are sinking into the sofas to watch TV or rustling up a delicious supper to enjoy around the table, you’ll do so in style. Each of the three bedrooms is opulent and comfortable, and the bathroom facilities are a treat when you are weary from the day’s explorations.

The pretty streets of Wirksworth host a variety of shops, eateries and even an independent cinema for light entertainment, a must when you are keen to kick back and relax. Adrenaline enthusiasts are well catered for with canoeing, windsurfing and fishing at Carsington Water (4 miles), or you may prefer to tackle the myriad of footpaths on offer. Matlock has a treasure trove of attractions to suit visitors of all ages such as the imposing Heights of Abraham (3.5 miles), and the regal Chatsworth House is 12.5 miles away which eagle-eyed film buffs may recognise from Pride and Prejudice.

Silk Mill House is a beautifully renovated old building and the owners had thought of everything to make a holiday home enjoyable and more! Kayleigh could not have been more helpful and communicative. We really cannot sing the Silk Houses praises enough.

Wirksworth is a pretty little market town with its own steam train/great little eateries etc. We would highly recommend it! Hide

We had a fantastic week in the property, which was beautifully presented, clean and came with a delicious welcome hamper. We would love to return one day as there was so much to see and do locally. We agreed that this was the best property we have ever rented.

A beautiful house in a fantastic location. The property itself was impeccably clean with lots of surprising little extras included. Everything about the decoration was beautiful and comfortable. The parking was very easy and the parking pass included works in other car parks around the Peak District too. The location was great and within very easy Read morereach of lots of adventures and visits for a family with young children. There is more we want to see so we will probably be returning. Hide

There were five of us staying in the cottage, me, my husband, sister and her eighteen and eleven year old. The cottage layout was absolutely spot on for us, with one bedroom on the bottom floor with its own loo and shower and the other two bedrooms on the middle floor with a beautiful bathroom. Top floor was the lounge and kitchen area, with fantasRead moretic views out over the hills in the distance. We had a brilliant time and would not hesitate to recommend Silk Mill to anyone. Hide

An absolutely fantastic place to stay. The house itself is beautiful and the location is perfect with great places to eat and drink just steps away. Even though the house is centrally located it is peaceful and the views from the upstairs windows are breathtaking. We were given a welcome pack with bread, cakes etc and milk which was lovely. The ownRead moreers also give you a pass for the car park if your car is too big for the narrow lane. Hide
