The accommodation was amazing - the pictures didn't really show how clean and well presented it was. Excellent equipment in a beautiful kitchen and several bits in the lounge / bedroom that we would happily have in our home !!. It provided an excellent base to venture out and explore the surrounding countryside, towns and activities.

Lovely place to stay ... a great location, secure parking, and a very clean and well appointed apartment. Some noise from the ajoining properties so walls a little thin, but otherwise very quiet.

The flat is well laid out and nicely furnished, but brought down by noise from No.1 & No.3, as No.2 is sandwiched between - not clear from the photos. We heard talking, laughing, sneezing & children running around which put a dampener on the romantic week wed planned.

Other concerns: a used washing up sponge, no draining rack, a tiny nonslip mat in the slippery shower. Hide

We stayed at the cottage for a month and it was absolutely fabulous! The cottage was perfect, Jacky the owner was fantastic, and the surrounding area was as bucolic as advertised.

This is a really lovely cottage - spotlessly clean, very well equipped & comfortable. Jacky was very friendly, responsive & helpful with any queries. Lovely welcome basket too with bread, milk, wine, jam, biscuits & crisps. Wirksworth is great in terms of location close to the national park, but we found most restaurants were closed from Sunday to Read moreWednesday. We found the small parking area close by difficult to use - space is very tight & it was full most days. Hide
