About the property

Quiet 1 bedroom cottage in village location

Beautiful cottage situated in the historic lead mining village of Middleton-by-Wirksworth, right on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

Sitting Room, Kitchen, Shower and Toilet on the ground floor.

TV with Freesat. DAB Radio.

Log burner (logs provided).

Landing area with Sofa Bed for a "plus one".

Bedroom with King size bed. Bedding, towels, toilet roll all provided.

Small Garden ideal for sitting out with a hard-earned drink after a day's activity!

Lockable shed, ideal for storing bikes.

Parking is on the main road, usually freely available. You can stop briefly outside the cottage and drop your bags off before finding a spot.

Close to the High Peak Trail, ideal for cyclists or walkers.

Two pubs to choose from, both in walking distance. Closest is the Nelson Arms: <a href="http://www.nelsonarmsmiddleton.co.uk">Nelson Arms</a>

The market town of Wirksworth is 1.5 miles away and provides the usual amenities, plus a varied arts programme throughout the year.

Use the cottage as a base for exploring the Wirksworth Arts Festival! http://www.wirksworthfestival.co.uk

Matlock Bath and Matlock are 3 miles down the road, providing all manner of attractions, amazing scenery and fantastic walks.

Ashbourne is 10 miles away, an excellent market town that serves as the southern gateway to the Peak.

Black Rocks is within walking distance along the High Peak Trail and provides excellent climbing, or if you prefer, explore the footpaths through the woods up to the summit.

The National Stone Centre can be found just down the High Peak Trail: http://www.nationalstonecentre.org.uk

You can follow the High Peak Trail north for quite a way, either on foot or by bike (bring your own, or hire from Middleton Top Cycle Hire centre). Eventually the trail joins up with the Tissington trail close to Parsley Hay, from where you can head south to Ashbourne.

Relaxing weekend away in lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a relaxing stay in this fab cottage!

Everything was well laid out and we enjoyed an evening by the fire after for an early dinner in nearby Matlock . The cottage is beautifully decorated throughout with a large comfy bed to rest after a day exploring the local area. The cottage is on a quiet street in the village with great views across the valley from the upstairs bedroom . We were inspired to enjoy the countryside and took a walk from the cottage across Middleton moor to join the high peak trail to the Black rocks and were lucky to enjoy great views across nearby Cromford to Matlock on a sunny January morning ! There is a small private terrace behind the cottage where you can sit with a drink which would fabulous in warmer weather . I would definitely recommend this cottage for a relaxing get away and a good location to explore all that this part of Derbyshire has to offer.
