Walkers can enjoy an unrivalled choice of waymarked paths offering routes to suit every ability, from easier paths to more challenging long-distance routes. You can also enjoy a gentle stroll around one of the many unspoilt villages.

You can choose to walk from the door of Bramble Cottage down the public footpath that takes you through Bolehill and into Wirksworth. Alternatively turn right and walk around 100 meters up Oakerthorpe Road where you will find a public footpath that will take you along Barrel Edge then down to Black Rocks and then down to Cromford or onto the High Peak Trail.


The High Peak Trail is an excellent cycling route and a range of bicycles can be hired at Middleton Top. Bicycles can also be hired at Carsington Water.

Water Sports

Carsington Water can help anyone looking to get out on the water, whether it’s hiring a rowing boat or canoe, windsurfing or kayaking, or to arrange lessons in a range of water sports, from kayaking to powerboats.

Cosy cottage, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cosy cottage with beautiful views. The location was perfect for us. Very close to local shops and a great local pub. Also really close to Matlock which is very beautiful. The best thing for us were the high peak trails only a 5 minte drive away where we hired some bikes and climbed some rocks. Stunning scenery. The cottage is well maintained clean and very comfortable and the owners are extremely helpful. Thankyou very much. A very memorable stay.

Lovely cottage; great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great Christmas here with the family. Cosy, warm and inviting cottage in a great location to explore Peak District and close to the pretty market town of Wirksworth. Cottage was clean and well equipped to cope with all our culinary needs for our Christmas festivities! Jonathan was prompt and helpful in dealing with all my enquiries in relation to letting the Cottage.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Bramble Cottage is a lovely place to stay. The cottage itself overlooks the Wirksworth valley and Wirksworth is a quaint town which is certainly worth spending time exploring. The High Peak Trail and Black Rocks are literally on the doorstep and there is a public footpath which you can take either down to Wirksworth or over Barrel Edge and down to Cromford which is also another great place to explore. (Scarthin Books was a highlight for me).

The cottage has plenty of walking books, tourist guides and information leaflets and there is also a Bramble Cottage website which we were able to use at the cottage as it has wi-fi.

The cottage is set back from the road so it is worth knowing that as you would need to look for the car port when initially arriving.

We were spoilt for choice with things to do in the area and will probably visit again.

Really enjoyed our time at Bramble Cottage. Brilliant cycle trails and walks right on the doorstep. Really liked Wirksworth, a proper little town with some independent shops, fab restaurants and great tea rooms. Hope to return again soon.
