The Heart of England/Peak District
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”

"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.

"A beautiful hidden gem"
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Wish it could have been longer. The Lodge was lovely, clean, tidy and spacious. Wonderful views. It was a treat to come back to at the end of the day. Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are all close by and worth a visit.. The owners have created a lovely place to stay and we cannot wait to come back again.
