    • “Well equipped cottage with stunning views”

    • “Super well-equipped cottage with absolutely stunning views. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to any able bodied person. (The stairs to the bedroom were quite steep and not suitable for anyone who is disabled.) Wifi was advertised but very hard to connect to, We persevered and eventually connected by being near the upstairs bedroom window but the signal was weak and inconsistent. Overal this was a lovely cottage, we really enjoyed our relaxing stay and we would stay again.”

    • “My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous midweek break in this beautiful, cosy, spotlessly clean cottage that has everything required for a comfortable stay. On arrival there was bread and wine on the breakfast bar and milk and butter in the fridge. A really nice welcoming touch. As a late booking we really didn't have much planned but there was a wealth of information available in the form of leaflets to help us. Jill, the owner of the cottage, really made us feel at home as did all the locals we spoke to in the village and the local pub, The Lord Nelson, was a super way to end each day. We would definitely return.”

    • “My husband, myself and our cocker spaniel stayed here for a midweek break and oh my what a great find. The cottage is fantastic and has all the amenities you need. On arrival we had bread and wine, milk in the fridge and everything you could need in the kitchen and bathroom. We lit the log burner and settled for a cosy stay. This is a real home from home and Jill made the whole experience simple and straightforward. The cottage is beautifully furnished, clean and warm. We will definitely stay again.”

    • “My wife and I stayed for a week in October. The cottage is delightful and in a lovely village technically just outside the national park although perfectly located for exploring everywhere between Dovedale and Buxton. Our hosts, Jill and Kevin, were just great and very welcoming (including a pack of wine and essentials). We had planned to stay longer but had to leave, however that gives us all the more reason to come back. We also found from the guest book that some relatives had stayed a few months earlier and never told us what a find it was.”

    • “Took my partner up for a romantic weekend in the Peak District. Was more than pleased by our stay at 12 The Green, and an unexpected welcome present of wine and bread. It was perfect for the two of us and was well kitted out to make meals and breakfast and for a comfortable stay. The stove fire was fun to use and there was enough wood/fuel for the two nights we stayed. Good location in terms of visiting the Peak District and options for the evening in the nearby Wirksworth and Matlock”

    • “We had a great winter stay at 12 The Green. The cottage was warm and comfortable, spotlessly clean and has a thoughtfully equipped kitchen. The owner Jill was very accommodating and flexible regarding check-in and check-out times. The weather was bad when we were there, with snowfalls each night, but we were happy to stay in and watch DVDs and even managed a wintery walk thought the hills. We reluctantly cut our trip short as the weather worsened but Jill has kindly offered us a free night if we stay again. The only downside for me was a lack of walkable eating places - the only pub to serve food in the village was poor.”

The views are lovely especially from the bedroom . When we arrived we were greeted with a delicious bottle of red wine and good chocolate such a very thoughtful gesture . The village is quiet and the locals are very friendly . We really enjoyed our stay in this sweet cosy cottage and feel we have had a very relaxing break. Big thankyou to owner .”

    • “Great cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely cottage. It is very comforable and well equipped in a good village location. We had a problem with the dvd palyer and the owners brought a new one round almost immediately. The only thing that was a bit of problem is that we took 2 dogs and we had to take them out on the lead if they wanted to go for a wee as there is only a tiny front garden and we didn't want it to end up smelling of dog wee. But if you have no dogs then this is a brilliant place to stay. The area is hilly so not suitable for disabled.”

    • “This was our second visit, we adore the place. There are so many interesting villages, lots of history, and of course an amazing amount of very different walks with splendid views. What more could we ask for? Then to return to the comfort of such a well equipped, tastefully furnished cottage! Also we were able to take our dog!”

About the location


Wirksworth 2 miles; Matlock 5 miles.

The former quarry and lead mining village of Middleton quietly nestles on a prominent hillside above the nearby towns of Wirksworth and Cromford, 6 miles from Matlock. The village is centred on a long main street which consists of a village shop and a good local pub, before eventually winding its way down into nearby Wirksworth. The surrounding countryside is a walker's and cyclist's paradise, with the disused High Peak Railway line close by, recently converted into The High Peak Cycle Trail and providing a fun day out for all. Nearby Matlock provides a good range of shops and pubs, whilst the many National Trust properties and museums throughout the area are not to be missed. A great location at any time of year!
