Eight The Green: experience Derbyshire from the heart of the village

Eight The Green

Eight The Green is around 200 years old and has recently been refurbished to a high standard. Located towards the upper end of Middleton by Wirksworth, the cottage overlooks the village green and hills beyond, and is just a short walk away from The Nelson Arms pub, a well-serviced bus stop and Middleton Moor's far-reaching views. It makes the perfect escape for two all year round, offering a cosy retreat after a day exploring the Derbyshire Dales.

The accommodation is split over two floors: living room and kitchen on the ground floor, bedroom and bathroom to the first floor. The front garden and rear courtyard provide plenty of outdoor space, and offer a seat in the sun throughout the day.

Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi are included. A few 'essentials' will be found in the kitchen on arrival, and logs and kindling will be provided to get started with the wood burner.

Please be aware that at present we don't accept children or pets, and the cottage is non-smoking.

NB Although the rooms offer plenty of head height, there are a few low ceilings on the connecting corridors and stairs – guests would be well advised to follow the 'mind your head' signs! The carpeted stairs are quite steep but there is a handrail.

After leaving your outdoor kit in the porch, you’ll find a comfortable living room with wood burning stove, dining table, armchair, and sofa handmade in Derbyshire. A 37" television with Roku Streambar provides streaming services via fast fibre broadband. The newly fitted kitchen has oak worktops, induction hob, electric oven, microwave, separate fridge and freezer and integrated washing machine. In warmer months, you can head outside to the sheltered sunny courtyard to top up the tan or enjoy some al fresco dining.

Moving upstairs, a well-proportioned bedroom has two windows looking out to the surrounding village with Black Rocks, Bolehill and Alport Heights beyond; a king size metal framed bed and hybrid mattress offer a restful night's sleep. There's plenty of storage with a hanging rail and chest of drawers. The spacious bathroom allows for a relaxing soak after a busy day of discovery, having a bath with thermostatic shower over and underfloor heating.

To the front of the cottage you can take a seat on the bench and keep an eye on village life. A lockable outhouse opposite can be used for bike storage if required. Although there is no parking space at the property, there is plenty of free parking around The Green and in the public carpark beside The Nelson Arms. You can pull up outside the property for luggage drop off and pick up.

If you wish to utilise public transport, then Cromford rail station is under 3 miles/10 minutes away, with a taxi or bus to Middleton by Wirksworth. The bus stop on The Green is served regularly by Trent Barton's The Sixes service, which runs from Derby to Matlock/Bakewell and visits many other local towns and villages on route. There is also a service to Ashbourne with a stop adjacent to Middleton Top.
