  • “Directions to the cottage are ...”

    Directions to the cottage are misleading - states from Porter Lane turn right onto main street and the cottage on the right, the cottage is actually on the left. Also description of the village said there was a shop, there isn't!

    Directions to the cottage are misleading - states from Porter Lane turn right onto main street and the cottage on the right, the cottage is actually on the left. Also description of the village said there was a shop, there isn't! There is no visitor comments book - this can be a source of information from previous guests. The owners provided plenty of tourist information which was very useful.

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!
