About Val Carman
The Apartment Wirksworth and George House were renovated by Val and Lester. The main property dates back to Georgian times and was originally built as a coaching inn. The apartment and garden were a special aspect of the refurbishment bringing contemporary design to this historic site. For four years the apartment was home to Val and Lester during the renovation of the main house and the comfort and pleasure derived from this experience made them realise that others too, may enjoy this sanctuary in a beautiful Derbyshire landscape.
