“Lovely cottage, home from home”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Matchbox Cottage met all of our expectations from the website, it had everything we needed for the week. Private gardens at front and rear catching sun at different times. Nice to have internet access. Great location, it is just a few minutes walk down the hill to the centre of Wirksworth. Good bus service links, we barely used the car! Lovely walks from the doorstep. Wish we could've stayed for longer!

“Ideal base to explore Wirksworth and the Derbyshire Dales”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

we really enjoyed our stay at Matchbox cottage. From the moment we arrived and were welcomed with tea and coffee supplies, we felt at home. The stairs hidden behind the fire place is the most unusual thing I have seen in a cottage! Wish we could have used more of the outside space, but just a few degrees too cold.
Wirksworth has everything you could need, including 6 pubs, lots of independent shops, cash points, petrol station and the best Indian takeaway. Most places are dog friendly.
For a nice evening meal try the Miners Arms Carsington on a Wednesday night, 24oz steak for £11 !!
Lots of walks long and short from the front door and the circular route round Carsington and the high peak trail nearby.
Will return next year, may be for 2 weeks.

Matchbox cottage is a lovely well presented cottage. We had a very enjoyable week staying there. The back garden is a sun trap and very peaceful.

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Loved staying here. Walked down the hill to the French cafe/restaurant most days for a great coffee and fresh croissants straight out of the oven. Warm sunny back garden, good spot for village walks down narrow lanes. Easy to park nearby. Good access to many sightseeing places nearby. Happy to recommend to others, definitely.
