17 The Lanes

The cottage was purchased in 2018 and underwent a sympathetic refurbishment before opening as a holiday cottage in April 2019.  It now combines  character with modern convenience and provides a real home from home.  

The high peak trail is on our doorstep along with glorious walking and cycling.  

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 Wirksworth and the surrounding Peak District and Derbyshire Dales.

Matlock, Ashbourne, Bakewell, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth are all within very easy reach and Carsington Water is only a couple of miles away.

Dogs are very welcome at the cottage but we do ask that they are not allowed on the furniture of the beds. 

We also have private parking for 2 cars.

Please note that the cottage is built into a hillside so that the garden is accessed from the first floor across a small footbridge. The door into the garden is at the top of the stairs and there is a quite steep step out of the door and then 4 more steps to the garden. 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Lanes.
