Wirksworth is a small, charming market town situated just a few miles from Matlock, on the edge of the White Peak. Wirksworth is full of character with many buildings of architectural interest, including its magnificent parish church. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient “jitties” and courtyards of the Puzzle Gardens, along with the Heritage Centre, as well as the delightful surrounding countryside including nearby Carsington Water, Black Rocks 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. Beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath with its spectacular cable car, the 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. In all, Wirksworth is a great location for a varied holiday.

Previous visitors' comments about Shalcroft:
Location was excellent near to shops and easy access to attractions in the Peak District. Highlight was 'Le Mistral' an excellent restaurant just round the corner.
Mr Walker, Coventry, August 2012
The town was lovely and the cottage gorgeous and comfortable. It was very central for the Peak District and walk able to pubs and restaurants without being too busy.
Mrs Carpenter, Bishop's Stortford, August 2012
I booked the cottage on behalf of my sister and family. When immediately entering the cottage, we were really impressed with the calm and relaxed feel the cottage had, the location and the information available regarding local attractions, restaurants and places of interest. Also the little touches (biscuits, little notes and historical information on the cottage) all added to the ambience and experience. As a frequent visitor to Le Mistral, I was able to take my sister, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Very warm cottage, comfortable and clean. Lovely area of interest to walk in and good shops and restaurants in village.
