Rose Cottage is a cosy space, only a stones throw away from the High Peak Trail. Easy access to Wirksworth, Cromford, Matlock, Ashbourne, Bakewell, Chatsworth and all that the Peak District has to offer. Great location for many walks and bike rides.
“Wonderful cosy cottage. We had a fabulous weekend. Location really good to feel slightly away from the business of Matlock bath. Great walks located around and easy access to Matlock and Matlock bath. We walked into Matlock bath but it is really easy to grab a 10 minute bus if you don’t fancy a 1 hour walk. Hosts are super helpful and added lovely little touches to make you feel really welcome. The pictures do not do this place justice it is just what we where looking for a cosy, romantic little break in country. Thank you xx”

Guests also have use of a croquet lawn, boules court and parking in the garden of Babington House next door.
“Anne is such an understanding host! She made us welcome in these difficult times. This visit was work related finishing off some crucial survey work. Anne's cottage is beautiful and in happier times will be a little gem to return to. The location is amazing with gorgeous views over Wirksworth to the fells. The cottage is really well kitted out and homely. All I'd say is that it's a steep hill to get to it, but we'll worth the effort! Perfect spot with parking in Anne's lovely courtyard by their stunning Jacobean house. Wow. I can't recommend enough”
Tower Cottage is a detached, 3 storey stone cottage for up to 4 guests in the heart of Wirksworth with its rich history and beautiful situation. * In light of the current situation, please rest assured that we have very high cleanliness standards and leave 24 hours between bookings for a deep clean and thorough airing. Wirksworth is a quiet town hence we are still taking bookings for those who want to get away from it all. Please do get in touch if you have any other questions. *
“Absolutely fantastic stay! We stayed in January and had the use of the gorgeous woodburner but look forward to visiting again in the summer as the terrace gardens are absolutely stunning.. The decor throughout is really nice, and there’s absolutely everything I could think of needing. Lots of the bottles about the house are refillable eco (e.g. washing up liquid) presumably from the local zero waste shop, which was an added bonus as helped me feel I wasn’t adding to being too wasteful..! As per the listing, the stairs up to the main bedroom are a bit winding and wouldn’t be appropriate if you had any mobility issues, however the stairs to the bathroom are standard stairs and fine for anyone staying on the ground floor room. The upstairs bedroom is also relatively cool compared to the rest of the house, there’s an oil filled radiator which made it toasty, but if you were arriving late I’d suggest trying to arrive an hour or so before going to sleep just to warm it up a touch. We parked absolutely fine (Audi estate), and noted that there was plenty of parking around Wirksworth within 3 of 4 minutes walk even if we hadn’t have managed to park outside. The access road is a little tight, perfectly fine for any normal cars but vans/yank trucks/campers would probably have an issue. Wirksworth itself is lovely, plenty of cafes pubs and restaurants in under five mins walk.. perfect location for a week’s holiday or weekend away!”
