The Crofter's House is situated in the quirky little town of Wirksworth which is known as the "gem of the peaks". The house is perched on the top of a hill and has wonderful panoramic views overlooking the surrounding countryside. Being on the edge of the Peak District National Peak it is an ideal base for exploring this scenic part of England. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and many other attractions are just a short drive away.
Start your day with a hearty English breakfast including local produce and homemade jams and marmalade.
One double/family room with private bathroom, TV and tea/coffee tray. Wifi access available.
Wirksworth is a vibrant little market town with a selection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and independent shops. Browse for antiques, books, brocante, toys and gifts. The town is also home to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, running seasonal weekend trains to Duffield. The annual Wirksworth Arts Festival held in September offers a mix of live performance, art trails and exhibitions.
A great place to stay in a very relaxed, welcoming, quiet location. Could not be bettered. No hesitation in recommending to others.
High standard of accommodation in lovely large room with very good facilities. Excellent breakfast, cooked to order with plenty of choices and using local suppliers from village. Separate bathroom. Joan is an excellent host who made us feel at home and provided local knowledge of area. Would stay again.
We had a very relaxing weekend staying in Joan and Tim's house. Joan's attention to detail is of a very high standard; from the room to breakfast and little cake treats too. A fantastic location in a beautiful small English town on the edge of the Derbyshire Dales. Plenty to do in the area. We very much enjoyed staying here.
Our stay with Tim and Joan was lovely. The house is set in a quiet area of a peaceful village. They made us feel very welcome and breakfast was absolutely 5-star!
Would highly recommend :)
Joan and Tim were great hosts! The house was beautifully decorated, the room was spacious and inviting and Joan went out of her way to cater for our every need. It was a delightful experience to stay in this town with these people. Breakfast was excellent as well. Highly recommended.
