Perfect for families and friends, this former silk mill has been styled with an eye for detail and offers a fantastic place to call home when visiting the Peak District.

Wirksworth is an ancient market town located at the heart of the Derbyshire Dales on the edge of the Peak District National Park. It is 4 miles from Matlock, 12 miles from Bakewell and 10 miles from Ashbourne. Wirksworth is a vibrant place with a strong arts-based community. It has a range of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and even an independent cinema. The beautiful Carsington Water is within easy reach 4 miles away, so if exploring the miles of rural footpaths isn’t your thing, try your hand at windsurfing, canoeing and fishing – for those who like dry land, push your limits on an 8-mile mountain bike course. You will also find a restaurant, playground, shops, bird hides and miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore nearby.

The property is split over three floors and reached via a few steps to the front door which leads into a hallway providing space to kick off boots and hang your coats. There is a king-size bedroom decorated beautifully and offering space to pop a travel cot if needed. There is a shower room with shower and WC and a nearby utility room with a washing machine. Heading up the stairs to the first floor you will find a twin bedroom and a king-size bedroom which is bright and airy. The family bathroom offers a freestanding bath, shower and WC. Head up the final staircase to the second floor to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a perfect space for entertaining. The kitchen area offers an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. Come together around the dining table and enjoy a celebration meal followed by relaxing on the comfy sofas in front of the Smart TV.

Enjoy relaxing evenings sat outside in the courtyard-style garden, with a hot tub and outdoor dining furniture. There is a parking space for one small car and a public car park is nearby (local charges apply).

Everything about Silk Mill House says 'quality', from the warm welcome on arrival to the high specification of the fixtures and fittings, which made our stay so comfortable. Our hosts were very responsive to our questions, too, which shows the attention to detail that has been invested in every element of the house.

We were wowed by the property as soon as we entered. You can't fault the cleanliness, amenities and small touches around the whole property. The owners had left a hamper full of goodies from the local shops which we did not expect. I highly recommend booking this property for your next stay

A fantastic property in a brilliant location. Loads of space and beautifully finished. The view from the top floor across the town and to the hills is so lovely. Great pubs and places to eat right on the doorstep and everyone was so friendly. Really lovely walks straight from the door.

To sum up the Silk Mill in one word it would have to be WOW! We loved it. Everything has been thought of and considered. What an amazing place. The decor is gorgeous. You can tell that the owners really love this place with no expense spared on the finishing touches. Wirksworth is a lovely quaint place. The Hope and Anchor do a lovely Sunday dinnerRead more. If there was a downside for folk it would be the amount of stairs but this was not an issue for us. The views were worth it. Just LOVED it!!!! Hide

A beautiful house with lovely furnishings and fittings. Separate towels for showers and the hot tub and even specific drinks glasses for the hot tub which was great!

A lovely property in a very interesting place. Wirksworth was a real surprise. Loved walking around the little pathways between the houses. Also enjoyed walking along the Cromford canal as naturally that was level amongst a multitude of uphill walks. Im sure the walks in the uphill areas were lovely but it was 39 degrees! Ideally placed for visitinRead moreg Chatsworth and Bakewell. The property did get very hot but it was exceptional weather. Not good for those with mobility issues as many stairs. Hide
