    A FlipKey Verified Reviewer, Shrewsbury, July 2013


    • “Everything was lovely. The cottage was excellent, and had a warm welcome from owners. Would definitely go there again and would fully recommend. Had a fabulous stay, love the Peak District.”

    Mrs Harding, Wickford, August 2015

    • “A comfortable and welcoming cottage in beautiful countryside. A very quiet location, yet close to all amenities. Had friendly and helpful owners. A perfect area for walking with or without a dog, however if you do take a dog, many pubs and tourist attractions are dog friendly. The closest pub to the cottage was probably the most dog friendly pub I have ever been in, at one point there were more dogs than people! More of a drinking pub rather than eating, but locals were very friendly and welcoming.”

    Mr Usher, Norwich, May 2015

    • “Ideally located cottage with fantastic views. It was like a home from home and we received a very warm welcome on arrival. We would thoroughly recommend this amazing cottage and already have done to all our family and friends. We can't wait to return!”

    Mrs Hunt, Lowestoft, March 2015

    • “The owners live next door and were very kind and welcoming, but were not intrusive. The view was fantastic. The conversion is small but perfectly formed, was very clean and well presented, perfect for our little family, and the facilities are very new.”

    Mrs Jordan, Sheffield, December 2014

    • “Peaceful. Quality standard and cleanliness of the property. Friendly welcome.”

    Mr Trower, Stafford, December 2014

    • “The tenants of the farm were lovely and friendly. They provided milk and tea bags when we arrived and a bottle of wine and biscuits. They even provided biscuits for our dog which was a lovely welcoming touch. Set in a beautiful location, the farm was peaceful with fantastic views of the countryside and the horses in their paddock. Loved it all.”

    Mrs Stirrup, Luton, October 2014

About the location


Wirksworth 2 miles; Belper 7 miles.

Alderwasley is a scattered area of farms and a couple of local pubs located in lovely rolling countryside with undisturbed views for miles, on the southern borders of the Peak District National Park. Nearby Wirksworth is a small, charming market town on the edge of the White Peak, and is full of character, with many buildings of architectural interest, including its magnificent parish church. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient "jitties" and courtyards, and the National Stone Centre, as well as the delightful surrounding countryside including nearby Carsington Water and the High Peak Trail. Rock climbing and cycling can be enjoyed here at every level, and there is good walking all around. Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and Wirksworth combines this tradition with a lively carnival. The annual Arts festival attracts international performers of every kind. Close to Alderwasley is Belper which is a town with a long and famous history dating back to the 13th Century, when it was then called Beaurepaire (beautiful retreat), a name that still holds true today. Now a spirited and bustling town, attractions include the North Mill, Long Row and the River Gardens. Beautiful Chatsworth House, Shottle Hall and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath with its spectacular cable car, the newly restored Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom. Only 2 miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is not to be missed. A great location for a varied holiday.
