This ideal Derbyshire Country Cottage is south facing and takes advantage of its position with a cottage garden at the front which is mainly laid with flower beds and a flagged stoned area making it a perfect summer sitting area with its stone brick BBQ. The most charming part of the cottage is the attention to detail and the quirky collection of pigs which adorn the cottage, from cute cuddly soft toys to wooden and pottery pigs they add to the special touch from the owner.More

About the neighbourhood
Wirksworth is one of the oldest towns of this area and still one of those with greatest character. Centred around its marketplace, where markets have been held since Edward I granted the right in 1306, it has many fine old buildings with picturesque alleys and craftsmen's yards. The reason for the splendour of many of the buildings is Wirksworth's historical trade - it was the southern centre of the Derbyshire lead industry and the Soke and Wapentake of Wirksworth, as it was called, was one of the most productive mining areas.
How to get there
From Buxton, follow signpost to Ashbourne (A515), continue along this road until you reach a Garage on the left at Newhaven. Take the turning on the left signposted to Matlock, B5012. Continue along this road passing through the Grangemill crossroads and take the next turning on the right after approximately two miles signposted to Wirksworth. Turn immediately left again up the B5023 and carry on through Middleton until you reach a T-junction, turn right and continue through to Wirksworth village, passing the Market Square. Proceed through Wirksworth Village and past the Wheatsheaf Pub on the left, then take the second left into Water Lane following the signpost to the Leisure Centre. Continue up Water Lane, the The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway line and up the hill. On reaching the Church...
