Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip to Wirksworth. The cottage was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. The town itself was quirky and interesting with lots of narrow hilly alleyways to explore and there were parks for our 18 month old daughter to run around. We would definitely come back.

Nice property, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time, house was nice. One downside was the parking or lack of it! other than that had all that we needed. Wirksworth is a good place for a visit to Derbyshire, quite central and the people are really friendly.(4 stars because of parking)

Lovely little cottage in an excellent village

  • 5 of 5

The cottage itself was fantastic! Very clean and it was in a perfect location.

Wirksworth it self has a lot to offer for such a small village, plenty of places to eat and drink, it has a small pub called the Feather Inn what has a great selection of beer and i would highly recommend the visit.

Several small villages to visit nearby as well as many walks and Carsington reservoir what offers water sports activities! - couldn't ask for a better place to stay, i plan to return!

Small cottage, big impression

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully presented, comfortable and well-located cottage was the perfect base for our short stay in Wirksworth. It packed a lot into a small space and every aspect met or exceeded our expectations. The bathroom opened onto both bedrooms - a great use of space. Kitchen was very well-equipped and, like the bathroom, was perfectly clean. Decor was modern and completed to a high standard and the furnishings were clean and cosy. Great walks are available from the doorstep. Wirksworth itself is lovely and has a lot to offer but well-known centres like Matlock and Bakewell are also within easy reach. We wished we could have stayed longer and, though we've rarely returned to places we've stayed, we're planning a return trip to The Dale. All in all, highly recommended.

Beautiful property in a perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Joanne's property, such a perfect little cottage-esque home, perfectly decorated and just the right size for the two of us and our 18 month old. The wine and biscuits were such a lovely touch. We will definitely be returning soon.

Very Cute and a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We chose number 5 The Dale as had planned a short trip to the Peaks as we normally travel in Europe on motorbike but thought we would try and explore what is such a beautiful part of the country . We were delighted with Wirksworth - such a cute and "quirky" place that's in a prime location to be accessible to some of the most beautiful scenery, interesting and fun places in the UK . There is so much to see and do - and always a hidden gem just around the corner ! The walk around Wirksworth with Stoney Forest and the Star Disc was lovely - and a welcome relief after biking up from Essex on our first day . There is everything in reach nearby - lovely butchers , bakers and great café literally 2 minutes away if you don't want to eat out in the local pubs and very nice French restaurant on your door step in the village ! The Dale is immaculate and very tastefully decorated and although it is small , is perfectly formed and comfortable even if you are a burly firefighter as my partner is and who needs space :) . We really appreciated the touches left by our hosts by leaving tea ,coffee ,milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge - really thoughtful . People in Wirksworth were so friendly and welcoming - we had lots of chats with people living local from the builder down the road renovating cottages to neighbours advising us on good roads to roam and my favourite - meeting a Checkolsavian Rescue Wolf Dog ! Lovely people and a lovely place with so much to see and enjoy and cant hesitate to recommend a stay here for the location , facilities and hosting .
