The England 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.

Wirksworth

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”

“Compact, comfortable and good value”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2016

Nice clean little cottage, good for us and our dog. V handy for Matlock and Matlock Bath, and a lovely hilltop location. Heating system was good. Towels and washing up liquid, tea towels etc. all provided. Just what we needed as we had come up for me to do a poetry reading at Masson Mills on Saturday and that was really nearby for any Derwent Poetry Festival visitors. Malt Shovel pub is v handy and welcoming for us and the dog, but what I would say is make sure you take a torch if you want to walk to it, and a reflective armband would have been useful too as lane is dark at night.

“Wonderful stay”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2015

I stayed here with my partner, mother, brother and 2 dogs. The accommodation is situated in a beautiful and tranquil location and perfect to escape the business of everyday life. However it is just a short distance from all local amenities such as the co-op, pub, cashpoint etc. There are also plenty of lovely strolls to go on (perfect for dogs) or if you don't fancy going far (or if you have an elderly dog) there is an enclosed paddock not far from the door to exercise your dogs in. We had a lovely stay and Robert the owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I hope to stay here again in the future.

“Lovely cosy lodge”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2015

We had a lovely week staying at the lodge. The property is very clean and well equipped and the paddock is very handy for anyone with dogs. The owners were very helpful too. We went to Carsington Water, Dovedale, Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock, all of which are within 20-30 minutes drive away. There are plenty of walks from the property but some do involve walking on roads if the fields are too muddy. It's an excellent property in a really good location with lots of things to see and do nearby. Would thoroughly recommend.

“Ideal hideaway with a view, & dog friendly.”

Comfortable, modern, fully equipped, incl wi-fi, excellent location, superb views, very friendly hosts, and tremendous collie friendly facilities & location.

“Very pleasant and well maintained cottage in a pretty location”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2014

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.

“Nice little cottage”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2014

Nice, comfortable little cottage & well equipped. Perfect for visiting the main tourist areas for Derbyshire and also well placed for all sorts of walks, long and short.

“An idyllic retreat”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

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”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2014

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.
