Extremely comfortable , especially the bed which we wanted to take home with us. A note about its location - neither of us will see 60 again, but the path up to the house didn't present any great obstacle, we just had to stop to admire the view once or twice. However It was extremely kind of Mal to meet us and help us with the luggage on arrival and departure . Our first trip to the dales, Wirksworth is a secret treasure ;we particularly enjoyed the local cinema with its sofas and wine thrown in ; The Mistral Restaurant ; the Farmers Market ; the bus ride to Bakewell ; The Horse Drawn Barge on the Cromford Canal ; overall a holiday that will warm the memory for a long time to come

Plenty of sleeping areas, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The Old Mill sits in a picturesque village close to a number of local attractions
