Wirksworth is one of the oldest towns of this area and still one of those with greatest character. Centred around its marketplace, where markets have been held since Edward I granted the right in 1306, it has many fine old buildings with picturesque alleys and craftsmen's yards.

The reason for the splendour of many of the buildings is Wirksworth's historical trade - it was the southern centre of the Derbyshire lead industry and the Soke and Wapentake of Wirksworth, as it was called, was one of the most productive mining areas.

"Lovely comfortable and well equipped cottage, ideally located close to the Peak District"

A lovely cottage, dog friendly and comfortably furnished. Everything provided that we needed including a well stocked and equipped kitchen. The welcome hamper was very much appreciated after a long journey, even dog blankets were provided! Ideal location, just off the Peak District and we did very little travelling as there was plenty to see and do locally. Matlock and the Heights of Abraham, and the White Peak were the highlights.

"Warm, cosy and full of character."

This was our second stay at Hog Cottage. When we arrived it was lovely and warm with lamps left on to make us feel welcome. A fantastic food hamper plus other kitchen necessities too. The cottage is spotlessly clean and has some nice features and extremely comfortable. Hog Cottage is in an ideal location for exploring Derbyshire, during our stay we had fantastic walks and great food at the local pubs.

"Easter Delight !!"

My husband & I & our dog had a wonderful Easter stay at Hog Cottage. The welcome hamper on arrival had all the essentials & also some treats as did the one for our dog, much appreciated & a lovely gesture. The cottage itself is a wonderful old cottage yet with plenty of space & light. There was everything you could possibly think of in the kitchen even including a draw with spare light bulbs, candles, batteries, poo bags, you name it they had it. There where lights left on for our arrival which was nice & cheery as we arrived in rain & the coal effect living flame gas fire was convenient but felt ‘real’ & cosy. I loved all the candles that could be lit too, that added to the atmosphere. The stairs are quite steep, typical for a cottage of that age but not a problem with the hand rail. The bedrooms where fresh & inviting. The master bedroom had a tv which we didn’t watch as we brought our IPad with us so the free Wi-Fi was useful for that. After a long day exploring the bed was soft, inviting & comfortable. I liked how big the bathroom was, a separate shower is always a bonus & it was strong & powerful. The front of the cottage has gardens & you are able to sit out & enjoy the views down into Wirksworth. The back is more a yard but handy for letting the dog out at night. I know on the website you are forewarned about the parking but I (even being a woman) did not have a problem, yes it’s a steep hill with a sharp turn but once outside the cottage its flat & easy to park against the wall. We were in & out each day & parked at the cottage each time but if you can’t manage it there is parking just at the bottom of the road which is fine too. Wirksworth town, is quaint & interesting with lots of little shops & pubs, the pubs are all dog friendly. The people are very warm & welcoming too, we chatted to a few locals & they told us different interesting things about the area. The trek to the Maltshovel from the cottage is a must but a little tip, google what a ‘snicket’ is first if you don’t know, could save you a bit of time. Matlock & Matlock Bath with all the bikers & The Heights of Abraham is a nice walk as is Carsington Water. We would have loved to do more but we were only a way for the 3 nights. Hog Cottage is definitely worth a visit, thank you for a relaxing special time!

Many thanks for your lovely comment and i am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hog Cottage. Its a lovely Cottage and we are always delighted to give personal touches to the cottage and the guests. Hope you welcome you again soon. Anna (owner)

Couldn't of picked a more beautiful place to stay than Hogs Cottage, a truly unique and wonderful place to rent to escape from the stress and worries of one's usual life. An unforgettable four days combined with the gorgeous countryside and attractions that the area has to offer , will definitely be back next year in both the Summer and early winter . Would highly recommend to everyone.....
