A good base to explore the Peak District, and within driving distance of Alton Towers and Gullivers Theme Park.
Old School House, as it suggests, is the original school house in Kirk Ireton, a charming old world village which climbs steeply out of the Ecclesbourne Valley rising to about 850 feet at the upper end, and looking down over miles of lovely countryside.
This charming cottage exudes rustic character whilst incorporating modern day luxuries. In the cosy lounge you will find a wonderful wood burning stove to relax and unwind in front of. The kitchen has been designed to offer all the mod cons you would expect, and a separate utility room with a washing machine can be found. Both bedrooms are oozing with character with exposed original beams and original windows with outstanding views.
Why not take a short stroll to the local pub, a handsome, Jacobean-style public house dating back to 1683, which is one of the very few remaining old English pubs to have retained the traditional image, and features highly in the Good Pub Guide.
There are some wonderful walks to be found from the doorstep of this cottage, and fantastic Derbyshire villages to explore such as Wirksworth, Matlock, Matlock Bath, Chatsworth, Carsington Waters and the High Peak Trail. For the more adventurous, Alton Towers and Gullivers Theme Park are not far away.
Whatever you preferences, Old School House is the perfect retreat from which to enjoy a memorable break in the Peak District.
