Very Good

“Everything you need!”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2013

Accommodation: Excellent quality furnishings something out of a home magazine. It's quite a small, but cozy cottage. I don't think any more space is required for two people. It's certainly very quick to heat up using the lovely gas stove in the living room. It felt very comfortable to live in for our holiday. The sofa in the living room could have been little more comfy, but it was ok. Location: Wirksworth was fantastic. It has all that you'll need. A couple of pubs, gift shops, a bank, butcher etc. It takes a good 10mins to walk to from the cottage, but it's nice and quiet where the cottage is located. The French restaurant was particularly friendly with great food. The area around the cottage offers some good views due to it's location on the side of a hill...hence the name! The parking wasn't too difficult and the little walk down the hill in the morning gets you off to a good start. Summary: Suitably small, extra cozy, conveniently located.

Owner's reply: Thank you for a lovely review. You will be pleased to know that we have just had a new sofa delivered! A couple of guests said that the old one looked nice but wasn't very comfy- so we've splashed out for Christmas and bought a new one. Hope you can come over in the future to test it!

“Excellent base for White Peaks”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2013

We stayed a week in this lovely cottage. It's got excellent facilities and is a perfect base for setting out to explore the White Peaks. It's cosy (the bed is comfy) and the kitchen and bathroom facilities are exemplary. I'd recommend to a friend but not an elderly one. The trek from the nearest parking spot is uphill (steep) and about 100 yards away - and the stairs are quite narrow & steep too. If you're fittish it's no bother. We'd never used the key-safe facility before and made the mistake of dropping the key back thru the letter-box (please don't do this!). Overall, a lovely cottage within a beautiful location.

Owner's reply: Thank you for a lovely review. Part of the charm of the cottage is that it is not on a road, and therefore very quiet and peaceful. The only nearby road to this little hamlet is a dead-end one that only leads to the fields, so the location is ideal for going walking straight from the front door. The parking in this historic part of town developed in an era of pre-car and pre-planning and the houses hug the hillside. Parking is therefore located a few minutes walk away from the cottage. There is a closer drop-off point for luggage if required. The cottage and the parking is not suitable to people with limited mobility.

“Beautiful comfy cottage”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2013

We stayed at Hillside Cottage for a 3 night short break and really enjoyed our time in this lovely little cottage in the village of Wirksworth. We were ideally placed to go on bicycle rides on the High Peak Trail which was nearby, joining it at Middleton Top and then cycling towards Parsley Hay and also visited Matlock Bath and walked up the footpath to High Tor where we had a fantastic view over the valley below and the cable cars. We would love to return to this fantastic property in the future and explore more of the area.
