Welcome to QWirky Cottages
We offer a choice of two well-equipped self-catering holiday cottages, available all year round. Both are set in the picturesque market town of Wirksworth, in the Derbyshire Dales, which offers an ideal base for exploring Derbyshire and the Peak District. The Peak Park has been popular with daytrippers since it was established in 1951 but there is so much more to see and do here than could possibly be fitted into a daytrip so why not come and stay in one of our cosy cottages and explore it thoroughly.
Short breaks and mid-week to mid-week bookings are available. See the price list for more information.
Saddler's Cottage sleeps 4/6 and sits in the heart of the old town. It has an extremely well equipped kitchen for those who like to unwind by cooking, and a cosy sitting room with log burning stove. An odd shaped cottage, vaguely triangular, it exudes charm and character with it's beamed ceilings and original windows. It is conveniently situated for all Wirksworth's facilities and events. We manage this cottage on behalf of the owners. [More]
Flat-iron Cottage sleeps 2 and sits on the hillside in the hamlet of Bolehill overlooking the town. This cottage is definitely triangular, hence the name. A cottage for both the romantic and the intrepid! Flat-iron has storage space for 2 bicycles plus hanging space for wet weather gear, hiking boots etc and after a day spent tramping the Peak District what could be more romantic than to curl up in front of the log burning stove and later retire to the four poster bed.

Wirksworth is an ancient town, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1089 and granted its Market Charter in 1306. It served as the administrative centre for this area of Derbyshire until the late 19th Century. Full of quaint nooks and crannies waiting for you to explore, the town holds its traditional Well Dressing Festival every Spring Bank Holiday, and a very modern Arts and Architecture Festival in September. So why not join the elite band of explorers who have discovered Wirksworth and fallen in love with it. It's a fascinating place and makes a great base from which to explore the rest of our beautiful county.
Carsington Water is just up the hill to the west, the High Peak Trail runs across the northern edge of the town continuing for 17.5 miles deep into the Peak District, the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site is literally just the other side of the hill and that's before you even start to consider Chatsworth, Dovedale, Edale, Bakewell, The Matlocks........
