Escape to the luxury and romance of this Georgian gem, a charming Grade II listed townhouse on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

Relax in the sumptuous interior of this extraordinary semi-detached home, lovingly created by its artist owners. Period décor is combined with contemporary comfort to include chandeliers, kingsize sleigh bed, lavish en-suite bathroom and designer furnishings. Individual touches throughout make this a very special place to stay.
Nestled in the historic heart of Wirksworth, this elegant property was built originally as a lawyer’s office. Guests will love exploring hidden corners of this quirky market town. Surrounded by rolling Derbyshire Dales countryside and with cafés, bistros and vintage shops on the doorstep, The Counting House is an ideal, year-round destination.
The area boasts an abundance of attractions. Stately homes such as Chatsworth House, Kedleston, Haddon and Hardwick Halls are all within easy reach. At Cromford the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site offers a fascinating insight into the region’s industrial past. Plentiful footpaths and trails provide a great choice of routes for walkers and cyclists. Visit nearby Carsington Water for bike hire, sailing, windsurfing, fishing and bird watching.
Wirksworth is a creative, vibrant community where there is always something going on. There is a weekly produce market and monthly farmers’ market, plus a host of annual events including the Well Dressing Carnival, Arts Festival, Open Gardens and ‘Antiques in the Streets’.

    This was a fantastic 1770’s house, beautifully restored to its elegant Georgian period, ideal for a couple on a romantic escape! We absolutely loved the quality of the artistic work by the owners on the fixtures and furnishing. These included - among many delightful touches - a wine box (containing a complimentary Prossecco!) crafted into a perfect facsimile of the house façade, and a stunningly hand-painted feature wall in the bedroom, replete with peacocks and other exotic birds. (We felt this was an interesting take on hand-painted wallpapers we have seen in National Trust properties of the Georgian period). And there seemed nothing missing in the way of 21stC essentials - easy to use and cosy central heating, TV, Wi-Fi etc, and a very well-provided kitchen - though it was also very easy to eat out in this location! Car parking could have been a problem - the house entrance is on a narrow side street in the centre of town (though on a cul-de-sac, so very little traffic past the door) - but the owners solved this neatly by the booking including a permit covering the nearby car parks, for 24-hour, 7-day parking. The nearest car park was only a matter of tens of yards from the house so this worked fine. We found Wirksworth to be a lovely market town with plenty to do in the area on a short break, even at a time of year (February) when all the large stately homes are closed and long walks in the Peak District are not high on the agenda. There are several interesting churches (Wirksworth, Youlgreave, …), a fabulous bookshop in Cromford, even a nice circular walk out of the Counting House’s front door and up the hill to the view at the millennial StarDisc, with a detour across the old limestone quarries. And Derby is nearby, with its unmissable Museum and Art Gallery. All in all, highly recommended!
