A gem of a cottage, with wonderful walks to enjoy nearby with amenities such as a pub and shop just down the road. Nestle in front of a cosy fire after an evening relaxing in your own private hot tub.

Situated close to the old pretty market town of Wirksworth, the property is a great choice for guests looking to spend a day meandering through the variety of local shops, cafes and restaurants of this historic Peak District town. For walkers, the nearby High Peak Trail provides an excellent starting point for a challenging hike through this spectacular part of the world. Nearby Carsington Water boasts a variety of scenic walks around the reservoir and beyond. Why not try a spot of kayaking, cycling, sailing or fishing. Matlock Bath has a huge selection of cafes and ice cream parlours and is also the starting point for the cable car that takes you to the Heights of Abraham.

Stepping into the hallway of the cottage is a space where you can hang your coats and take off your boots and wander through to the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. In the lounge area there is a comfy sofa to snuggle up on by the beautiful roaring wood burner and TV, a great place to relax after a day hiking the hills. The kitchen offers everything you need to rustle up a satisfying meal such as an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Enjoy the results of your cooking at the nearby dining table. There is a ground floor shower room with shower and WC which will get you fit and ready for a day exploring the hills. Heading upstairs to the first floor the huge high ceiling in the bedroom is impressive and feels light and airy. There is a super-king-size bedroom which will provide a good night’s rest, with complimenting furniture and wardrobe space.

The cottage was very clean. I dont think it is suitable for dogs however as the front yard is very small and there is only a very small room downstairs without a stair gate which meant keeping the dog downstairs a problem. The hot tub was fabulous. Could do with an upstairs en-suite

Very disappointed booked for 7 nights had to leave after 2. Much smaller than it appears on photos. We informed owners of issues and said we dont do reviews but after reading identical feedback a year ago we feel compelled. It would take minor costs to change and improve. Grubby rug, stairs from hell, concrete, steep and dangerous. No wine glasses Read moreonly old plastic ones. Did not use hot tub as not private from road and had grit in the bottom. Bed very comfy, sheets and duvet tired and no mirrors Hide

This cottage is just so quaint and finished beautifully, with even local marble in the bathroom. The hot tub is a great addition and the closed yard gives safety for any dogs. The stairs are steep but completely manageable in comparison to local hill climbs! The large fridge freezer is helpful. The village is also lovely and the Rising Sun pub doesRead more fabulous food. Being so close to Middleton top gave us some fantastic walks with beautiful scenery and the high peak trail is so interesting. Hide

Beautiful cottage. Ideally located for walkers; some great routes within short driving distance. Hot tub is on the front as no rear garden so little exposed, not 100% private, but enough coverage so it didn't stop us from enjoying it every day. Great cottage with everything you could need, home from home. The stairs up to the bedroom are very steepRead more. All in all a lovely 1 week break away, would recommend. Hide
