Historic Location

Our Victorian cottage is located in the historic mining and quarry town of Wirksworth in Derbyshire. The history goes back to the times of the Romans. They were attracted to the lead ores found in the area. More recently high quality limestone was quarried in the area, though these quarries are now closed. The cottage is located on a hill on the Derby Road. The centre of town is 330 metres to the north along the Derby Road.

A miner’s cottage

The cottage was built in 1905 to house a quarry worker’s family. As part of a small terrace of brick built and tiled roof houses, it had two rooms downstairs and two rooms upstairs. The tin bath would have been used in the kitchen and stored in an outhouse when not in use. Over the years, the cottage has been modernised to give a lounge and kitchen downstairs. Upstairs is a comfortable large double bedroom and shower bathroom. It is good for one or two people staying on holiday or visiting friends. At the back of the house is a common yard surfaced by bricks with steps leading up to the garden area. A picket wooden fence and gate divides the yard.
“Convenient for couples and pet”

It is not a country cottage.

If you are seeking a tranquil country thatched roof cottage with roses around the front door, this is not the place for you. It is on a town road with buses every half hour. It is convenient for the centre of town. The Anthony Gell secondary school is 100 metres to the East.
