    We had everything needed for our stay and we settled in stress free. The farm was in the most idilic spot with traffic noise unnoticed which was a welcome change for us . We had everything we needed in the area close bye from shops to places of interest but it was the walking we will remember which we never tired of. Watching a calf being born and keeping track of its progress will stay with us for ever. The best stay and can't wait to return again.

  • "We loved our long weekend at Wigwell Barn."

    We received a lovely warm welcome from the owners on arriving. The barn was spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable and just like home from home. The scenery from the window was just amazing and so was the peace and quiet, we enjoyed lots of walks around the area. We visited Chatsworth House for the Christmas event, which was only 12 miles away. The house and gardens were fabulous and well worth a visit. We also visited Cromford Mill and Wirksworth. Both Chatsworth and Cromford were dog friendly. We would not hesitate to stay at Wigwell Barn again and our dog enjoyed it too.

  • "Couldn't have chosen a better cottage for our holiday."

    Delightful, tasteful decor and furnishings - and really well and thoughtfully equipped. Felt at home immediately.. The agency photos simply don't do it justice! The views across the valley, from the lounge and garden are truly stunning. You feel you're away from it all, yet the wonderful historic town of Whitworth, with a good selection of shops and eating places, is is only a few minutes drive away. Loads of fabulous places to visit, under a half hour drive away. (And it is genuinely dog friendly!) Can't wait to return!

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.
