    “The cottage was beautiful and had everything you could ask for.”

    The owner is so relaxed, friendly and helpful and was especially welcoming of our dogs. The pub next door is very friendly and worth a visit. Lovely area with some stunning walks. Highly recommended.

The property

This comfortable, well-maintained, semi-detached cottage is located next to the owners’ pub in the heart of Middleton near Wirksworth, close to historic village of Cromford.

This wonderful Middleton cottage is perfect for groups of walkers, families, and groups of friends looking to enjoy the outdoors and explore this beautiful part of Derbyshire.

This Middleton cottage has three lovely bedrooms boasting feature beams, including a delightful family bedroom with a double bed, a mezzanine level with twin beds, and an en-suite shower room.

Downstairs, the cosy, open plan living area is the perfect space for everyone to gather and relax, and simply enjoy your time together.

Outside, soak up the sunshine on the patio and on warm summer evenings, enjoy al fresco dining as you discuss the day’s adventures.

Middleton is a charming little village.

Next door, the owners’ own pub makes the perfect spot to unwind with a refreshing drink after a day of walking.

The National Stone Centre is just a short walk from this delightful Middleton cottage, as is access to the sensational surrounding countryside and an abundance of wonderful walking trails.

Explore the nearby Carsington Water and the High Peak Trail where rock climbing and cycling can be enjoyed at every level.

Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and the nearby market town of Wirksworth combines this tradition with lively carnivals.

The beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach of this Middleton cottage, as well as Matlock Bath, with its spectacular cable car rides, the newly-restored Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, and Gulliver's Kingdom.

Only two miles away from this Middleton cottage, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is certainly not to be missed.

In a great location for exploring the pleasures of the Peak District, this Middleton cottage is a great base for a family holiday, at any time of year!

About the location


Wirksworth 1.7 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, 5 miles from Matlock. The village is centred on a long main street which consists of two good pubs, before eventually winding its way down into nearby Wirksworth with a selection of shops and amenities. The village was the Silver Gilt winner for the National Village in Bloom awards in 2016 and 2017. 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!
