About Val Carman

The Apartment Wirksworth and George House were renovated by Val and Lester. The main property dates back to Georgian times and was originally built as a coaching inn. The apartment and garden were a special aspect of the refurbishment bringing contemporary design to this historic site. For four years the apartment was home to Val and Lester during the renovation of the main house and the comfort and pleasure derived from this experience made them realise that others too, may enjoy this sanctuary in a beautiful Derbyshire landscape. Val, an artist and Lester a musician have lived in Wirksworth for twelve years and engage with the many creative opportunities which are on offer within the community, and the annual Festival in September brings thousands of visitors to the town.

Why Val Carman chose Wirksworth

The apartment is an ideal place to relax, or to visit the amazing, historical sites of Derbyshire.

The apartment is situated on the edge of the town within walking distance [ 2 minutes] of the centre. Ideal for two people, 4 friends or a small family the apartment provides a comfortable contemporary living space .

Fantastic base for exploring the Peak District

Had a great time away with the family and the apartment was excellent. The kids loved the games and we were made really welcome by Val.

We’d certainly stay there again and can highly recommend.

Lovely modern appartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the appartment which was perfect for our family. Everything we needed was there and the location was great with a shop and pubs just a few steps away.

Alton Towers was about 30 minutes away, we also visited Crich Tram Museum, Poole Cavern, the Peak Wildlife Park and Monkey Forest all within easy reach.

Great location and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Wirksworth as we wanted access to the Tissington Trails and though a bit steep we could walk up to Middleton Top to hire bikes in about 30 minutes. This enabling us to have a drink half way at the Royal Oak in Hurdlow, highly recommend best meal we had in the Peaks, a few beers and not have to worry about driving back to our apartment where we could recover from the day.

The apartment was perfect everything you need, bright and fresh, while very comfortable and clean. Val was lovely and on hand for any queries and a smile. There is parking and your own garden if the weather is warm enough to enjoy.

We ate one night at Le Mistral in Wirksworth which is well worth a visit had a really nice Seabass and my husband a spicy chicken dish, the pubs unfortunately are not great though the Red Lion is more welcoming inside than it looks from outside and very reasonable for a drink. But we found plenty of lovely pubs on our walks. As already mention the Royal Oak at Hurdlow our favourite, Knockerdown Inn which is only about a 10 minute walk from Carsington Reservoir had a really lovely lunch there a nice beer garden though it is next to a fairly busy road, also Carsington Reservoir is a great place to walk round. we did walk there from Wirksworth but its quite a difficult walk to follow as the farmer has blocked a path. We had another great meal at The Bowling Green in Ashbourne, which is a really nice town, my husband who rarely eats steak in England said it was really good and the staff were lovely, we also visited for a drink the George and Dragon in Ashbourne very nice.. On our last day we walked to Matlock as wanted to walk along the Derwent and the Canal at Cromford a lovely walk, though walking through Matlock Bath is not so great, but following the river through to Matlock is though a very steep walk you get some great views your even above the cable car. Pubs are not great in Matlock we had to walk slightly out and found a great pub with a garden the Red Lion at Matlock Green and met some very friendly locals.

All in all we had a great time, would highly recommend the area and the accommodation.

Wirksworth in "darling " Derbyshire, Matlock district

  • 5 of 5

We traveled quit a bit before reaching this lovely apartment ( explored Scotland and Yorkshire). Now we needed to see this area! What a great find! Perched on a hilltop right situated in the middle of this village... This apartment is modern, clean, great bathroom ( important to us Yanks) , spacious with two bedrooms and parking!!! Easy on our doorstep parking!!! Our hosts were helpful and gracious offering in addition a lovely welcome basket. Also offered for your evening entertainment.. Videos, music , lovely books and board games. Within steps you have a mini market, bakery ,restuarant etc no need to move that car! Just walk!

For us, this location offered easy access to the magnificent Chatsworth(which currently has a lovely costume exhibit as well), HAddon Hall a jewel.. Please see Haddon's video on premises, Keddleston, Sudbury, Shurborough estates. The surrounding area also offers pubs,hiking, walking and beautiful vistas. What more can you ask ?

For the price... A bargain. Spent four night here. Became Home!
