Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Wirksworth, Derbyshire, England
Matchbox appeals to all ages and can provide the perfect holiday for the active and also for those looking for a quiet retreat.

Matchbox is large enough for 4 people , with separate dining and living rooms, gardens front and rear. The cottage is ideally situated close enough (a few hundred metres!) to the town to wander to, but located at the edge of some of the best walks in the Peaks.

Featured in Good Homes magazine, Matchbox has been recently redecorated and refurbished throughout with Farrow and Ball paints, new furniture and curtains creating a warm and welcoming feel. The wealth of charming features – from the original butcher's block and Belfast sink in the kitchen, the apothecary chest in the dining room, roll-top bath, wood-burner, and beams throughout – help to create the prefect atmosphere for a great holiday.

Matchbox is in a brilliant location so near to the centre of town and such a wonderful, cosy cottage. We loved the bath, the log burner and sunny garden especially plus the amazing walks from the door. Wirksworth is a great place with so much going on and we definitely would have come back to Matchbox, except. during our stay...

A cosy cottage, nicely decorated with a fabulous free standing bath and confortable master bedroom. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. Wi-fi throughout. Parking was never an issue despite no allocated parking - the road the cottage is on is pretty steep, but that's not uncommon in the Peak District. Would recommend...

About the neighbourhood
A leaflet we picked up recently in the town (produced by the Wirksworth Civic & History Society) mentions the following features...
- The Puzzle Gardens; a higgledey-piggledey collection of houses perched on the steep hillside above the Dale, and linked by a maze of footpaths.
- The Wirksworth Fetival (September annually) including my favourite Art & Architecture weekend where around 70 homes open their doors to the public to show off their architecture, features, or as galleries for local artists and sculptors.
- The High Peak Trail (start at Middleton Top); cycle or walk for up to 30 miles along this trail. (cycles can be hired from the Middleton Top visitor centre)
- The National Stone Centre (great for Children's activities)
- Wirksworth Leisure Centre (at Anthony Gell...
