    “We booked this cottage near Kirk Ireton as soon as 12th April was named as the date restrictions on self-catering holidays would be lifted, so that we could at least meet our new grandson in his parents' garden in Derby!”


    The cottage is in beautiful surroundings and was exactly as described, although the glass tables in the photos have now been replaced with scubbed pine. Given the restrictions, we self-catered every day and the kitchen made this a pleasure - plenty of space and well equipped. We did not use the dishwasher or washing machine. Hot water was piping hot. The bed being close to the wall is, in reality, only an issue for about two minutes per day, i.e. when you are getting in and out of bed! However, we are both slim - it might be more problematic for others. This property is a long way from the nearest main road so is very peaceful and this, combined with the very comfortable bed, meant that we slept well. The broadband signal was very good and we were able to watch TV live on-line with none of the buffering we experience at home. Beautifully furnished throughout with some interesting art on the wall, ceramics in the display cabinets and other nice pieces dotted around. The owner was very helpful in giving us permission to cross his fields straight onto the Carsington Water Circuit path. Only critisism would be the strength of lighting in the kitchen and the sitting room could do with a proper reading light placed behind the sofa. We enjoyed our stay at Garden House and would definitely consider returning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

About the location


Wirksworth 4 miles.

Kirk Ireton is a lovely rural village located in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, dating back to the Bronze Age, on the southern borders of the Peak District National Park, just four miles from Wirksworth. Kirk Ireton is made up of lovely locally quarried sandstone buildings, many of which date back to the 17th century, the oldest of which is the village pub. Kirk Ireton is home to a fascinating Norman church and the village is just perfect for having a stroll around and soaking up the history. 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. Beautiful Chatsworth House, Shottle Hall and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as is Matlock Bath with its spectacular cable car, the newly restored Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom.
