The space
Wirksworth is a small market town on the edge of the Peak District. Nestled in the Bolehill area high above the town, 17 The lanes is perfectly located for exploring the quirks of Wirksworth and delights of the surrounding Peak District and Derbyshire Dales.
There is fabulous walking and cycling from the doorstep. This is a perfect location for enjoying all sorts of outdoor activities or just to use as a base to explore the area. Matlock, Ashbourne, Bakewell, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth are all within very easy reach and Carsington Water is only a mile away.
The high peak trail is on our doorstep along with glorious walking and cycling. There is also secure storage for bikes or other sports equipment in a garden store.
Wirksworth punches well above its small size in terms of its thriving community and many activities. The town’s welcome sign proclaims it the ‘gem of the peak’ and its not wrong.
The cottage itself offers a comfortable size lounge with log burner (logs provided), free WiFi, Freeview TV with built in DVD player, Netflix and a selection of DVD’s, games and books. Maps and walking books are also provided.
Dogs are very welcome but we do ask that they are not allowed on the furniture or beds. We charge £25 extra for dogs.
Parking is available at the cottage for two vehicles.
Please note that the cottage is built into a hillside so that the garden is accessed from the first floor across a small footbridge. There are drops to retain two sides of the garden from the cottage but these are well fenced with fencing approximately 3'6" high. It is not suitable for wheel chair access.

Location

Matlock , England, United Kingdom

The words quirky, different and special are often used to describe Wirksworth. A fascinating small town on the Southern edge of the Peak District where the geology and landscape have shaped its character and its people for generations. On a Royal visit, Prince Charles once referred to the town as ‘Quirksworth’.

Having had an industrious past and mixed fortunes relating to the industry available, Wirksworth is now known for its independent shops and cafes, annual arts festival, bustling music scene and dozens of artists and creatives who live and work in the town.

The town is nestled at the head of the Ecclesbourne Valley surrounded by beautiful countryside with delightful walks and stunning views. The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway (Derbyshires longest heritage railway) is a stone's throw away.

We (my sister Helen and I) purchased 17 The Lanes in December 2018 after previously owning another holiday home in the Peak District. We did some renovation and decoration and opened the doors to our first guests in April 2019. The Lanes is a fabulous spot with a sheltered and secluded garden, great views and walking from the door step. Wirksworth is centrally located to explore the Peaks and the Dales and is an utterly charming market town. We love our cottage and sharing it with our guests and hope you love it as much as we do.
