Lying peacefully in the market town of Wirksworth, this quaint 18th-century, detached cottage offers scenic views over roof tops and the surrounding countryside.

    This is a very comfortable and well-equipped cottage, which made an excellent base for us at Christmas. The only drawback is its position (which, of course, has lovely views): it is at the top of an extremely steep path, which, if guests are elderly or have e.g. knee or back problems, is problematic. The owners are very helpful and responded to any requests that we made; Wirksworth is a an interesting and enjoyable small town and an excellent centre for exploring the Dales.
