The nearest pub is about 200m away, with a Co-operative store a further 100m beyond. Other shops include butchers, delicatessen, mini supermarkets and takeaways all within easy walking distance. There is also a local park with play facilities including skate park for children within 200m of the house, not to mention the network of public footpaths from Wirksworth into the surrounding countryside. Although the house itself does not have wi-fi, a few minutes walk to the town centre will find free wi-fi at The Red Lion, Le Mistral and the local library.








The hall gives access to the kitchen and the lounge/dining room, and stairs leading to the first floor. There is some hanging space in the hall and a large walk-in area under the stairs where you will find chairs for outside, the hoover etc. and space to store walking boots and bicycles. This area can also be fitted with a safety gate to create a dog pen overnight. The ground floor has laminate flooring throughout.


The Living room is a large room created by knocking two rooms into one. It is divided into zones with a seating area centred around the open fire, having two 3-seater sofas, occasional table and the Freeview TV with DVD player. The dining area has a large wooden table seating 6, and there is a secondary seating area at the far end of the room providing a quiet area.








The Kitchen is spacious, and new. It has plenty of working space and a separate breakfast bar where onlookers can sit and chat to the cook without getting in the way!! The 4 ring hob and fan oven are electric, and there is also a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, microwave oven and a washer/dryer. We provide plenty of crockery and cookware including some less breakable plastic crockery for little people.
