The Derbyshire region

Wirksworth is a small market town in the heart of the English countryside between Matlock and Ashbourne. It is on the southern boundary of the Peak District National Park and 30 minutes drive north of Derby.


The local area is steeped in the industrial history. There is the privately run heritage Ecclesbourne Valley Railway that runs through Wirksworth, there is also the National Tram Museum at Crich (5 miles away) and the Derwent Valley Mills (listed as a World Heritage site).

For outdoor pursuits the High Peak Trail starts just down the road, and Carsington Water reservoir has lots of activities for sailing, horse riding and other water sports.

Wirksworth has an Arts Festival in September with quirky little shops, pubs, and a 52 seat cinema with 3 vintage sofas on the back row.

It is away from the crowds of Matlock but is close enough to the main Peak District attractions, such as Bakewell, Chatsworth and the Peak Park itself.

Alton Towers is only 40 minutes away and if you would like a spot of shopping the City of Derby is only 30 minutes drive away.

For romantics, Wirksworth is thought to be the setting of George Eliot's first novel “Adam Bede”

"Very pleasant and well maintained cottage in a pretty location"

I stayed at Hollywell Lodge with my teenage son for a couple of days of walking in the Peak District. It's a pretty little cottage in an attractive rural setting. Robert the owner was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The cottage has a compact but light and airy living space with sofas, kitchen units and a fold away dining table. The main double bedroom is spacious and light - enjoyed the sun coming through the windows in the morning. To get to it you walk through the second bedroom which also has the bathroom off it - an arrangement that is not ideal if the occupants of the second room value their privacy. Although adjoining the owner's property the cottage felt secluded and we liked the fact that it had its own private patio area. The owner had clearly put a lot of thought in to the cottage and it had everything we needed in terms of information and utensils. Everything worked and was in very good condition, including effective central heating which we needed in the evening. The owner was also very knowledgeable about the Peak District and was able to recommend good walks etc.

A few minutes walk away down a quiet lane is a nice local pub - The Malt Shovel, that did decent food and nice beer (Marstons), and a little further, but still walkable, was the Bear Inn that served more upmarket pub food and some interesting beers. The Wirksworth area worked well for us - access to the White Peak area was very easy and yet being on the edge of the national Park we were able to return home easily via the M1 too. Wirksworth was a pretty enough little town, although we didn't think very much of the choices for good places to eat there - better options can be found a little further afield.

"An idyllic retreat"

A jewel in the crown of beautiful Derbyshire. We rented the cottage for a family gathering and although there were a considerable number attending the outside space enabled us to spill outdoors and enjoy the fantastic setting.
The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and equipped with quaint features.
We would highly recommend this to others who are considering this area of the country.
