“cosy well equiped cottage”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2018

I have just spent 3 nights here and found it to be very comfortable and equipped with everything you could need. Nicely furnished and ideal for exploring the area

“Great cosy cottage”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2017

Matchbox cottage is a great cottage in a great location. It is well equipped with comfy beds and a secure garden (for the dogs). It's only a five minute walk to the town centre and has great walks in and around the area. The WiFi works really well and it has a freeview plus TV. Great communication with the owner. Looking for somewhere to stay in the Peak District look nowhere else.

Owner's reply: Thank you!

“Comfortable and Cosy Cottage in a Great location”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

We stayed here with our two children and dog in May half term. The cottage is well equipped and has a wonderfully, cosy feel. We loved being able to catch the morning sun in the front garden whilst enjoying sundowners on the rear patio enjoying the lovely views. The cottage is very peaceful and was spotlessly clean on our arrival. It was great to be able to walk straight into Wirksworth to take advantage of the superb local shops and cafes. The deli in town is especially good. We also loved exploring the old quarry and many local footpaths without the need of the car all the time. A perfect base for relaxing or exploring the peaks. We will definitely be back next year.

“Sweet little cottage in good location”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

This is a lovely comfortable cottage which is well equipped and in a good position. I went with a friend and we took two dogs. The small garden is enclosed so ideal for the dogs. The owner was extremely helpful when booking as we only wanted Monday to Friday, and then he was flexible enough to let us stay an extra day as we were having such a good time. Thank you Rob! For dogs owners, a good place to take the dogs locally is the Stone Centre, a five minute drive from the cottage. The cottage itself is on a very steep hill, which was ok for us but anyone with a disability would find hard. We can recommend Le Mistral which is a French bistro in Wirksworth.


Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

Lovely cottage with everything you could want and a short walk to the town and the excellent Blacks Head pub which was welcoming and dog friendly. Even the moody teens did not want to leave. We felt relaxed from walking in and would recommend the property and Wirksworth if you want to chill out and relax.

“Could have been really good......”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2013

Lovely location, lovely building, but a few finishing touches spoiled the overall experience. Please fix the front door - It desperately needs re-decorating and looks awful. The keep also needs to be properly fixed - I did an improvised repair, but it offers no security. The curtains in the small bedroom have pins holding the hem up - not ideal when the room is used by kids. The dining room seat pads have collapsed and cannot be used. It's very nice having fancy paint on the walls, but the above items really took the edge off of a lovely holiday.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your feedback; We work hard to keep Matchbox in top condition, whilst still keeping the 'old-cottage' charm. The front you can imagine, we and the local planners are reluctant for anything other than a period wooden front door to be fitted, and we've got a craftsman carpenter making a replacement front door for us. This should be done within a few weeks but in the meantime, please accept our apologies for it not looking as nice as it should. Curtains are new; being hemmed asap. The dining table and chairs are old, period items and as a result of your feedback we'll get the seat pads refurbished. Rob

“Gorgeous little cottage in a lovely friendly town”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

I Booked Matchbox cottage for a 3 day break with my 22 year old daughter to simply chill out. Cottage was cute and quirky with everything we needed and was a great place to relax in. It was clean, comfortable and cosy, reasonably priced and we absolutely loved our time there. Booking was easy and the owner provided information I requested within a very short space of my asking along with offering flexibility with our arrival and departure times as we were travelling by train. The local transport is excellent and we found it very simple to visit the area this way. The town has plenty of places to eat and drink and has its own deli, bakery and local store. We got everything we needed from these and it was so nice not to see a big supermarket taking over another self sufficient town. Wirksworth is a lovely, friendly and happy place, the cottage was just lovely and we cant think of anything we didn't like.

“Perfect New Years getaway”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2013

Very nice little cottage, perfect for me and my partner for our New Years getaway. Perfect location with restaurants and pubs very close by and other facilities available. Also perfect for plenty of walks to take in the views and the fresh air. Very nice cosy cottage and perfect for a romantic getaway

“Warm, cosy and welcoming”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2013

Booked to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, the cottage had everything we needed. As non-drivers it was a great location being just a short walk from shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants in Wirksworth and the very good bus service which enabled us to travel far and wide across the Peak District. It was lovely to sit in the garden and take in the views before and after a day out. It was so cosy that we were almost reluctant to go out and enjoy one of the friendly pubs in Wirksworth though we managed to overcome our reluctance on some nights. Owner was very helpful throughout our booking and it is certainly on our list for a return visit.

“Lovely old cottage”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2013

I stayed here for a week with two teenage children. We loved the layout of the cottage. Tone os character with some low ceilings and a little sun trap of a garden. The beds were comfy and there was a great bath. Everything provided and only a short walk to the shops. Local country walks can be done without a car and it's easy to get to all the main attractions with a car. The village had some good takeaways but not so much in terms of restaurants, more of pub food. Do things close to the cottage as you will be rewarded with fantastic walks and views. If you want a hotel then book one, if you want a cottage in a town/ village then this is perfect.
