Warm and welcoming it has everything you need for a very comfortable and relaxing stay, including a fully fitted kitchen, high quality bedlinen and towels, free Wi-Fi, DVDs, books, and lots of walking and cycling straight from the door.

There are lots of great country walks straight from the door into the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, and historical houses like Chatsworth a short drive away.

Inside features a peaceful, spacious and airy double bedroom with exposed beams, high ceiling and a skylight window letting in lots of natural light and sunshine.

Enjoy the fantastic sunny garden with birds tweeting and cows parading on the field opposite. The sunny South facing garden is a real suntrap with all day sunshine and lots of wild birds and butterflies. There is a table and chairs to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy a sunset. In the autumn you can watch the beautiful autumn colours of the trees on the fields opposite. In the winter you might be lucky to get amazing snowy fields or a frosty morning views from the cottage. This is a beautiful tucked away little cottage. Just bliss.

Wirksworth provides an ideal base to explore the Peak District at any time of the year, with plenty of walks straight from the front door and close proximity to High Peak Trail and Carsington Water for cycling, canoing and walking, as well as close to stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. It is easy to just enjoy a lazy day in the town sampling great cake and coffee in ‘Coffee Drop’ cafe with a newspaper and a stroll around the quirky and historic narrow lanes and streets of Wirksworth. St Mary’s Church, the Star Disc and the old hidden footpaths around The Dale and Greenhill for local heritage and architecture.

Plenty of cultural activity in the town with an annual arts festival, open gardens, spring carnival, well dressings, open air cinema screenings and music nights in the pubs.

Wirksworth has fantastic amenities with independent shops, butchers, bakeries, antique and vintage shops, cafes, micro-brewery and a French restaurant and local pubs.

About Tiina Hill

We are a family living in Wirksworth with an enthusiasm for the outdoors and the cultural life. Wirksworth provides the perfect base for both! We love the artist community in Wirksworth, the annual arts festival and all the other creative activity that takes place. We are always happy to give you ideas for places to visit, or to go walking and cycling. I love running and walking in the hills, and my husband loves his collection of mountain and road bicycles and likes to get out mountain biking in the Peak District at every opportunity. The cottage has lots of maps and books for ideas on where to go. We very warmly welcome you here and happy to help you make the most of your stay.

Tiina Hill purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Tiina Hill chose Derbyshire Dales

We lovingly renovated the cottage a few years ago, and have spent happy times there ourselves and now want to let other people enjoy the magical countryside spot. I always feel that Hillside Cottage is a very happy beautiful cottage with the beautiful sunlight it gets and the great suntrap garden with lots of birds and butterflies.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has an amazing tranquility and peace about it as it has a Scandinavian influenced beautiful decor, and has views of hills and fields. The garden offers a perfect opportunity for watching the evening sunset with a glass of wine, or enjoy the frosty views in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was luxurious and perfectly located for an active holiday.



Tiina made us feel very welcome, provided an excellent info pack and everything we needed for a lovely, comfortable stay. We loved the place-small but perfect and the location was wonderful for walking/exploring/pottering about. We really enjoyed Wirksworth, a really pretty, Interesting place.

Our Stay at Hillside Cottage Wirksworth

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay at Hillside cottage. Everything you needed was there including the fantastic scenery. Hillside cottage is beautifully presented and Tina made sure you feel at home as soon as you entered. There is lots to do, or not, whichever suits you on the day. The terraced gardens to while away the day or visiting the surrounding areas. All is clearly laid out in the welcome pack. We really enjoyed our stay. As Tina points out, could be a bit of a steep walk up to the cottage for some but so worth it. Hope to come again.
