The market town of Wirksworth is 1.5 miles away and provides the usual amenities, plus a varied arts programme throughout the year.

Use the cottage as a base for exploring the Wirksworth Arts Festival!

Matlock Bath and Matlock are 3 miles down the road, providing all manner of attractions, amazing scenery and fantastic walks.

Ashbourne is 10 miles away, an excellent market town that serves as the southern gateway to the Peak.

Black Rocks is within walking distance along the High Peak Trail and provides excellent climbing, or if you prefer, explore the footpaths through the woods up to the summit.

The National Stone Centre can be found just down the High Peak Trail:

You can follow the High Peak Trail north for quite a way, either on foot or by bike (bring your own, or hire from Middleton Top Cycle Hire centre). Eventually the trail joins up with the Tissington trail close to Parsley Hay, from where you can head south to Ashbourne.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had such a lovely weekend.. lovely walk to Matlock stopping off for a drink at the Boat Inn (Cromford), then finished the weekend off with a meal at the Red Lion in Wirksworth.

Fire was fab and everything was prepared ready for us, we definitely will be returning!

Lovely, quirky property in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We booked a last minute short stay at this lovely little property. Communication with the owner was easy, quick and much better than expected considering we only booked the day before arriving and they managed to get a cleaner in so that they'd be able to accommodate us!

Kitchen is well equipped, bed is super-comfy and the quirky bathroom with bare stone wall is a great feature!

Whilst there is no garden to speak of, the patio area (accessed from a gate to the right of the property) is lovely and we enjoyed listening to next doors canaries chirping away.

Cannot fault the service, the location, or the property and would highly recommend.

Lovely presented cottage, positioned an ideal location for exploring the Peak District.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little gem of a cottage, perfect in every way. Ideally situated for anyone who wants a quiet retreat - plenty of good walks within a close proximity. Sure to return.

Wonderful little cottage, made up with great care and attention

  • 5 of 5

The cottage makes brilliant use of the space. It is very cosy and not at all cramped, with a lovely lounge/dining room area and ample kitchen with separate shower and toilet downstairs, and a nice big king-size bedroom and landing (with pull out mattress/sofa) upstairs. The whole place was spotlessly clean and had many little touches that just elevated the whole experience. It is a little tricky to find and parking is on a busy main road, but only a 30 second walk from the front door and we didn't struggle to find a space at all.

My daughter and I had a lovely time staying here and will definitely be back. Well done and thank you Brian for making our holiday so special.

Very Romantic get away for the fit and healthy

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic property really well maintained. Access to the small garden was gained via a steep stairway. Whilst the bed was huge and very very comfortable access was via another steep staiway that lacked in our opinion a bannister.

Overall impression was a truely restive holiday cottage that would have earnt 5 stars had the TV worked or a router with access to internet. If you are looking for a Romantic getaway, Honeysuckle cottage is for you !

Lovely little cottage, very clean and functional

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the weekend, they have thought of everything and the property has been done out to a high standard.

Really great location, friendly village, as cyclists it was really handy to get on to the tow path and visit various areas of interest along the way.

Would love to come back soon.
