Nestled in the heart of the peaceful Derbyshire village of Middleton rests this delightful stone-built holiday home, Wags Cottage.

Offering a traditional and homely setting, Wags Cottage is an idyllic base for a small family or group of friends looking to explore the delights of this captivating region.

Stepping into the property, you're welcomed into a snug sitting room, beautifully decorated with rustic wooden beams, exposed stonework and a warming woodburning stove, providing the perfect spot to settle down for the evening after an action packed day.

Continue through to the open-plan kitchen/diner, fit with delightful country-style units and equipped with all of the necessary appliances to rustle up a heart-warming meal, where you can gather your loved ones around the intimate dining table tucked away in the corner of the room to indulge.

Climb the stairs to the first-floor where you will find two bedrooms, a snug single room and a king-size, both beautifully decorated with a neutral interior and offering a welcoming space to rest your head.

Servicing the property is an elegant family bathroom, boasting a fabulous roll-top bath alongside a walk-in shower cubicle, giving guests the choice to indulge in a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles or enjoy an invigorating rinse.

In the morning, enjoy a cup of coffee ahead of a new day with a leisurely seat on the front patio, watching the world go by.

Take the short stroll into the center of Middleton where you'll find a traditional village pub, The Nelson Arms, serving beers from a range of UK based micro breweries, and hosting regular entertainment events including a challenging quiz and live music.

Within easy reach is the market town of Wirksworth, where you'll find a selection of shops and eateries to suit all tastes, and homing a wealth of local history worth discovering on display at Wirksworth Heritage Centre.

Further afield is the popular tourist town of Matlock, where you can indulge in a unique experience of afternoon tea aboard a vintage steam-hauled train at Peak Rail, or spend a fun-filled day out at Gulliver's Kingdom theme park.

Avid outdoor adventures can enjoy a trek through the varying landscape of open moorlands, farmlands and wooded valleys in the Peak District National Park, taking in the breath-taking scenery from a wonderful selection of cycling and walking paths, where there's something suitable for all abilities.

About the location

Wirksworth is a small, charming market town situated just a few miles from Matlock, on the edge of The Peak District. The town is full of character with many buildings of architectural interest, including its magnificent parish church of St Mary’s. Thriving independent grocery stores sit alongside a popular zero waste shop, gift shops and two butchers with a strong local food ethic. The weekly Tuesday market and monthly farmers' market (first Saturday of the month) provide local produce, coffee and crafts. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient “jitties” and courtyards of the Puzzle Gardens up above the Market Square, leading to the Star Disc with fantastic views high above the town. Visit the Heritage Centre and 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 fantastic walking all around. Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and Wirksworth combines this tradition with a lively carnival in May. There is also an annual Arts festival in September with an amazing Art & Architecture Trail, showcasing contemporary art and international performers of every kind. The award winning Le Mistral Bistro along with a range of pubs – do not miss micro pub The Feather Star – a range of cafes and takeaways and an independent cinema are all within walking distance. The town offers a leisure centre with a climbing wall and a small trainer swimming pool, The Eco Centre, The National Stone Centre and the Mount Cook Adventure Centre. Beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath, with its spectacular cable car, the heritage Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom.
