The Sidings Self-Catering

Holiday home
The Sidings is a wonderful, cosy semi-detached holiday home in Wirksworth in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District. There is an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner that you can curl up by and enjoy a book or share a bottle of wine while you plan your holiday's activities. An idyllic window seat offers a lovely spot to sit and enjoy views of the Gilkin Hills. Up an open staircase, there is a double bedroom with a en-suite shower room and outside, there is a small, private patio with furniture. With Carsington Water and Ashbourne within easy reach, The Sidings is a wonderful base for a couple's retreat exploring this beautiful region.

Area
Situated just 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.

Region
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.

A wonderful place to stay, everything about it was good..

What a gorgeous little treasure.. Cosy, romantic and nicely hidden away but close enough to anything you might need. Cannot fault our holiday at The Sidings, in driving/walking distance of different walks and attractions, we particularly enjoyed our walk to the star disc, and blue lagoon. Great place for couples seeking time away from a busy life, in seek of peace and tranquility. The cottage itself is a lovely size, perfect for two, with everything you might need, we personally loved that the facilities enabled us to cook our own meals which made things extra special and romantic for us. Additionally the friendly owners are always on hand if needed, or if you seek any information for advice.

The Sidings is a clean and cosy cottage.. The owners are lovely and attentive if anything is needed. The location is perfect, about 7 minutes in to village centre and 10/15 minute walk from many walking trials. Will definitely be visiting again.

I found The Sidings to be a very quiet and comfortable place to stay with everything you need to make yourself a home away from home.. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, and very informative with lots of useful information about the local area of Wirksworth, and also the Peak District in general. The main purpose of my visit was to walk the Tissington & High Peak Trails and I found The Sidings the perfect location to access this area from. I would highly recommend a stay here to anyone and will certainly be returning myself at some point

The Sidings is a wonderful place to explore the local area, Shirley the owner was a wonderful host and went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect.. If you are a Railway enthusiast this the place to stay being right next to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, the upstairs window being the perfect place to sit and watch the trains go by. I throughly enjoyed my stay and will be returning at some point in the future for another visit

Lovely property within walking distance of Wirksworth.. Not as private as we expected as joined on to a property next door & facing the owners house but was a lovely relaxing break & the owners, Shirley & Kevin, were very helpful & friendly. Wirksworth is a lovely town & a great base for visiting places in the Peak District National Park.

The Sidings is the perfect peaceful hideaway for two.. Immaculately presented, this cosy cottage contains all you could possibly want, and more, for a comfortable stay in a lovely part of the country. Owners Shirley and Kevin made us feel so welcome and have thought of everything with so many extra little touches which make all the difference. Clever storage is well thought out and a comfy bed ensures a great night's sleep. Quaint and quirky Wirksworth, a short and pleasant stroll away from the property, offers an abundance of amenities from shops to eateries to pubs and is a charming town. We have discovered a beautiful area which we intend to revisit at the earliest opportunity. We may even bring along the walking boots next time around!

What a wonderful little cottage! Had everything we needed. Great location, just a short walk into Wirksworth which is a beautiful village.

Fine cottage in a lovely area. There is so much to do in and around Wirksworth, a busy, sophisticated town, not called Gem of the Peak for nothing. Thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to the area.

Fine cottage in a lovely area.. There is so much to do in and around Wirksworth, a busy, sophisticated town, not called "Gem of the Peak" for nothing. Thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to the area.

Very modern, fresh and clean. The log burner was gorgeous. Very quiet location, didn't hear much car noises. The owners were very friendly and welcoming (even though we didn't get to meet them, contacted by phone!) They left tea, coffee, milk, sugar, jam, bread etc. and some what looked like homemade shortbread - gorgeous! We would definitely stay here again, I have absolutely no bad points to say

It was wonderfully warm even with the turning weather, The Sidings was exceptionally well-equipped both in the kitchen and bathroom. The owners were very friendly, while their property was the perfect size to be a home from home for us during our stay.
