The Old Post Office description

Cosy Cottage with beautiful views. This charming, detached, stone holiday cottage boasts amazing views over the Derbyshire countryside and nestles in the hamlet of Little Bolehill, on the outskirts of the lovely market town of Wirksworth. It has been renovated by the owner to include all the mod cons but still has the charm of the original cottage. Outside there is an enclosed courtyard with a lockable gate and to the front of the cottage, there is a pretty little garden with seating area to make the most of the wonderful views. Wirksworth was once an important lead mining town and is steeped in history. St Mary’s Church has a famous Saxon sarcophagus and there is an array of interesting architecture, independent shops, pubs and restaurants and an art deco cinema. On Tuesday’s there is a small market and every month (Saturday) there is a farmers’ market. The centre of Wirksworth is 10 mins walk down a public footpath or five minutes drive from the cottage.
Enjoy exploring the ancient “jitties” and courtyards of the Puzzle Gardens, along with the Heritage Centre and the delightful surrounding countryside, including nearby Carsington Water, Black Rocks and the High Peak Trail. Rock climbing and cycling can be enjoyed here at every level and there’s superb walking all around. Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire, and Wirksworth combines this tradition with a lively carnival and annual arts festival, which attracts international performers of every kind. Beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy reach, as well as Matlock Bath, Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, Abraham’s Heights and Gulliver’s Kingdom. The Derwent Valley World Heritage Site in Cromford (Richard Arkwright’s Mills) is just two miles away.
