The Sidings description

Holiday home
The Sidings is a wonderful, cosy semi-detached holiday home in Wirksworth in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District. There is an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner that you can curl up by and enjoy a book or share a bottle of wine while you plan your holiday's activities. An idyllic window seat offers a lovely spot to sit and enjoy views of the Gilkin Hills. Up an open staircase, there is a double bedroom with a en-suite shower room and outside, there is a small, private patio with furniture. With Carsington Water and Ashbourne within easy reach, The Sidings is a wonderful base for a couple's retreat exploring this beautiful region.

Situated just a few miles from Matlock on the edge of the White Peak is Wirksworth, a small market town. Full of character with many buildings of architectural interest including its magnificent parish church, Wirksworth offers a quieter alternative to the popular town of Matlock. Visitors can enjoy exploring the ancient 'jitties' and courtyards, as well as the National Stone Centre, the delightful surrounding countryside and the nearby Carsington Water and High Peak Trail. Rock climbing and cycling facilities in the region cater to every level of skill, and there is good walking all around. The country homes of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as is Matlock Bath with its spectacular cable car, the newly restored Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and Gulliver's Kingdom. Only two miles away, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site in Cromford provides a fascinating day out.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Fine cottage in a lovely area. There is so much to do in and around Wirksworth, a busy, sophisticated town, not called Gem of the Peak for nothing. Thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to the area.

Very modern, fresh and clean. The log burner was gorgeous. Very quiet location, didn't hear much car noises. The owners were very friendly and welcoming (even though we didn't get to meet them, contacted by phone!) They left tea, coffee, milk, sugar, jam, bread etc. and some what looked like homemade shortbread - gorgeous! We would definitely stay here again, I have absolutely no bad points to say

It was wonderfully warm even with the turning weather, The Sidings was exceptionally well-equipped both in the kitchen and bathroom. The owners were very friendly, while their property was the perfect size to be a home from home for us during our stay.
