Stunning Scandinavian Boutique Cottage Retreat with Rolling Countryside Views

Historic cottage in Matlock
Trust the reviews and book this 5* cottage for a relaxing and luxurious stay.
Enhanced Covid-19 cleaning and sanitisation process in line with Government guidance to ensure a safe and comfortable stay for you.

A wonderful cottage in a peaceful countryside location with rolling countryside views, and great walking and cycling straight from the door. Enjoy the fantastic south facing sunny garden with birds tweeting and cows parading on the field opposite. This bijoux little cottage with Scandinavian influenced design and top quality fittings throughout is lovingly restored with plenty of character.

Warm and welcoming it has everything you need for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Included is everything you could possibly need free Wi-Fi, top quality bedlinen and towels, DVDs, books, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine, espresso coffee machine. Interiors are carefully chosen to create a peaceful and comfortable retreat.

Located in a picture perfect quirky town of Wirksworth with a walk away from range of independent shops, boutique art-house cinema, monthly farmers market, french bistro, local delicatessen, annual arts festival, micro-pub selling records and local ales, antique shops and country pubs. Wirksworth is an ideal place for a local relaxing stay, or to venture further into hills of the Peak District.

Hillside Cottage offers a peaceful, calming, spacious and airy double bedroom on first floor with exposed beams, high ceiling and a skylight window letting in lots of natural light and sunshine. A comfortable and chic Laura Ashley king-size bed with a lovely coil sprung mattress with memory foam top, luxurious mattress topper, fluffy pillows and high quality cotton bed linen for a peaceful sleep. Next to the bedroom there is a beautiful and stylish modern bathroom with freestanding sink and powerful shower, as well as nice fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries.

Downstairs has a fully equipped kitchen with high quality Smeg appliances, including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave and washing machine, and plenty of supplies for cooking and baking.

The cottage has everything you need for a perfect holiday and all the little extras like hair dryer, ipod dock, ironing board, free Wi-Fi, DVD player, internet enabled TV and books to read. A home away from home. Guests often comment how spotlessly clean the cottage is and what an amazing tucked away retreat feeling it has.

The sunny South facing garden is a real suntrap with all day sunshine and lots of wild birds and butterflies. There is a table and chairs to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy a sunset. In the autumn you can watch the beautiful autumn colours of the trees on the fields opposite. In the winter you might be lucky to get amazing snowy fields or a frosty morning views from the cottage. This is a beautiful tucked away little cottage. Just bliss.

Wirksworth provides an ideal base to explore the Peak District at any time of the year, with plenty of walks straight from the front door and close proximity to High Peak Trail and Carsington Water for cycling, canoing and walking, as well as close to stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. It is easy to just enjoy a lazy day in the town sampling great cake and coffee in one of the independent coffee shops with a newspaper and a stroll around the quirky and historic narrow lanes and streets of Wirksworth. St Mary’s Church, the Star Disc and the old hidden footpaths around The Dale and Greenhill offer great exploration of local heritage and architecture, and brilliant views.

Plenty of cultural activity in the town with an annual arts festival, open gardens, spring carnival, well dressings, open air cinema screenings and music nights in the pubs.

Hillside Cottage is located in Gorsey Bank, a short walk away from town centre. Gorsey Bank is a delightful hamlet of character homes located just on the outskirts of Wirksworth, overlooking the town. Many of the homes were built for the employees of Providence Mill, once a hive of industry, where narrow red tape to bind legal documents was produced. Gorsey Bank has a web of paths and walkways leading in and around this historic site.

Good location, steep stairs, a lot of steep hills,walks from the door, railway nearby,,Matlock Bath.
Rained a lot but managed to have some lovely walks and lots to do nearby.

5/5 Excellent

Cosy cottage, good location
Lovely cosy cottage, clean and very well equipped. It has a nice elevated position and a small garden with table and chairs which is perfect for a morning coffee or afternoon cuppa. There are lots of walks in the area so we didn't use our car during our stay, we parked near the church, a short walk away. Tiina is a great host and responds quickly. Highly recommended.
