Wirksworth, Derbyshire, England
Beautiful, lovingly renovated one bedroom cottage with scandinavian influenced design. Originally built in the 1880's for the mill workers in this small rural enclave, the cottage combines history with contemporary interiors and sits within amazing rolling countryside. Walk or cycle straight from the door. Restored to a high quality finish, including fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a cosy lounge with a feature fireplace and an airy double bedroom with solid oak floors and exposed beams.
