Shottle is a small hamlet located in lovely rolling countryside, 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. 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 relaxing holiday.

We like the location and the quirky interior.
Mr Stanton, Chorley, March 2013
The barn was very well presented, located in a nice peaceful area but not too far from villages and shops and plenty of places to walk with your dog. If you want a quiet getaway this is definitely a place to consider. I had a lovely visit.
Miss Pope, Cheadle, January 2013
The cottage was perfect for what we needed and it was very cosy. It was situated in a perfect location away from main towns but convenient enough to get to places very easily.
Mrs Watts, Aylesbury, October 2012
Peace and quiet. Modern decor in a remote location. A small property but with a great feeling of light and space. Great place for a weekend close to the Peak District!
