Wigwell Barn Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Wigwell Barn is a ground floor barn conversion on a working farm near to Wirksworth in Derbyshire. All on the ground floor, you will find stunning uninterrupted views of the Peak District countryside with a cosy sitting room with electric fire and a king-size bedroom. You will also find a fitted kitchen with a dining area, perfect for a hearty breakfast before a busy day. Outside is off road parking and a lawned garden with outdoor furniture. Set in beautiful Derbyshire countryside, Wigwell Barn is a fabulous romantic getaway.

Situatedjust 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.

Everything was lovely. The cottage was excellent, and had a warm welcome from owners. Would definitely go there again and would fully recommend. Had a fabulous stay, love the Peak District.

A comfortable and welcoming cottage in beautiful countryside. A very quiet location, yet close to all amenities. Had friendly and helpful owners. A perfect area for walking with or without a dog, however if you do take a dog, many pubs and tourist attractions are dog friendly. The closest pub to the cottage was probably the most dog friendly pub I have ever been in, at one point there were more dogs than people! More of a drinking pub rather than eating, but locals were very friendly and welcoming.

Ideally located cottage with fantastic views. It was like a home from home and we received a very warm welcome on arrival. We would thoroughly recommend this amazing cottage and already have done to all our family and friends. We can't wait to return!

The owners live next door and were very kind and welcoming, but were not intrusive. The view was fantastic. The conversion is small but perfectly formed, was very clean and well presented, perfect for our little family, and the facilities are very new.

The tenants of the farm were lovely and friendly. They provided milk and tea bags when we arrived and a bottle of wine and biscuits. They even provided biscuits for our dog which was a lovely welcoming touch. Set in a beautiful location, the farm was peaceful with fantastic views of the countryside and the horses in their paddock. Loved it all.

We certainly picked a winner with this cottage. Everything was just what was required for a short break with our dog Patch. Parking right outside, lovely and warm when we arrived, and a wonderful view thrown in as an extra!
Mrs Broadbent
September 2013
I particularly liked that you didn't need to bring such things as towels and tea towels. The greeting from our hosts when we arrived was also really nice. We couldn't fault our time at Wigwell barn, it was just what we were looking for!

Great location for visiting local attractions. Owners friendly and very welcoming. Would highly recommend to others.
Mr Sleight
August 2013
Wigwell cottage was probably the best cottage we have stayed in, everything you need is in the cottage. The surrounding area was really good for walks, and nothing is too much trouble for the owners.
Miss Hinds
February 2013
The cottage exceeded all expectations. This is my first holiday of this kind and I will definitely be booking another in the future. Superb!
Mr Lintern

Ms Hooton

Very impressed with the booking process, even though I,d left everything until last minute. Property exceeded expectations, owners very pleasant and very accommodating. Great location, lovely quaint pub nearby, good food. Great walks for the dog!
July 2013
Clean, well equipped, good welcome. Situated in a very interesting area with exellent views.
July 2016
Despite arriving (and eventually leaving) in pouring rain we had a very warm welcome from the owner. Even down to a pint of milk in the fridge, a bottle of wine and some biscuits! A well appointed cottage let down only by a lack of kitchen storage for food. Don't take a week's worth of food with you! Otherwise all you could hope for.
Mr Kearney

It's a fantastic cottage set in a great place. The owners were very welcoming and considerate. We will return.

An excellent well equipped holiday cottage which was very clean. Would recommend this cottage for touring the Peak District.
