17 The Lanes
17 The Lanes
17 The Lanes, a sympathetically refurbished ex miners cottage, provides character with modern convenience. It has a cosy lounge with log burner, well fitted kitchen and a peaceful, secure garden for relaxing with a glass of wine or local beer. Dog friendly (£25 extra) with fabulous walking and cycling from the door step. You can literally leave your car untouched for your stay with us. Situated in Bolehill, a short walk from Wirksworth centre, it's superbly situated for exploring the Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District. 4 Miles from MatlockRead More
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. It is a cozy, characterful 2 bed (sleeps 4) with a suntrap, sheltered and secure garden.
There is fabulous walking and cycling from the doorstep, with a footpath from the garden gate and the High Peak Trail less than 10 minutes walk away. 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.
There is also secure storage for bikes or other sports equipment in a brick store directly opposite the cottage.
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 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 one vehicle.
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
