    This cottage is right in the centre of Wirksworth within a short walking distance to everything. We arrived on a busy weekend with a Wizard weekend and a beer festival a few steps away. Ideal location for walking, with our dog, and able to leave the car for free. The cottage has two bedrooms, one en suite, a lounge with dining area and kitchen arranged open plan style, all over three floors. Take note of the description stating steep stairs to both upper floors, it means steep stairs. Care with young children would be necessary. The size of the ground floor level would be 'cosy' for 4 adults. All facilities that we needed for a week were provided, and biscuits and milk thoughtfully provided by the owner. Good sized, well enclosed rear yard would be great for socialising in fine weather.

About the location


Matlock 6 miles.

Wirksworth is a small, charming market town situated just a few miles from Matlock, on the edge of The Peak District. Wirksworth is full of character with many buildings of architectural interest, including its magnificent parish church. Independent shops sit alongside the deli, butchers and bakers with a strong local food ethic. Visitors will enjoy exploring the ancient “jitties” and courtyards of the Puzzle Gardens, along with 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 with an amazing Art & Architecture Trail in September, showcasing contemporary art and international performers of every kind. With an art deco independent cinema and a range of places to eat there is plenty to entertain. 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. The weekly market and monthly farmers' market provide local produce and crafts. 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. Only two miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford is not to be missed. In all, Wirksworth is a great location for a varied holiday.
