A unique historic building full of character and warmth. Set in the quirky picturesque market town of Wirksworth, nestled between The Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District National Park.
A former Magistrates house and Police Station now an unusual and quirky luxury guest house. Situated in the historic market town of Wirksworth on the edge of The Derbyshire Dales and Peak District National Park the Old Lock up is ideal for walkers, cyclists or just as a get away from it all romantic break. A wide range of watersports are available at nearby Carsington Water, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Matlock Bath and the Derwent Valley Mills are all within half an hours drive.
The Old Lockup has been sensitively refurbished to combine its historic original features with modern convenience. Its four spacious en-suite bedrooms are individually styled and furnished, complete with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
An extensive breakfast menu offers something for everyone, special dietary requirements are catered for and evening meals are available allowing guests to do nothing but soak up the atmosphere. Eating out is easy too with a range of restaurants and pubs just a few minutes walk away.
The Old Lockup also provides guests with a free private car park, complementary Wifi access, guest lounge with open fire. There are bookshelves in most of the rooms with a selection of good reads.
An invigorating double airbath soothes aching muscles after a day walking the Dales and as we are fully licensed a glass of wine adds to the experience.
