Had a lovely weekend in this characterful cottage, well equipped with great welcome hamper. Its on a bit of hill but then again so is everywhere in Derbyshire!
Will be coming again.
We had an excellent time at Hog Cottage and Wirksworth itself is lovely. Lovely places to eat and drink like Mercia, Le Mistral and Featherstar. My only caveat is that you need to be comfortable with hills -walking up them, or at least parking on one. There is parking at the bottom of the hill too luckily as our driver is an anxious person with a fairly long car. The cottage itself is absolutely lovely, with every inch packed with character and thought. It felt like a proper home away from home.
Absolutely fell in love with hog cottage from its beautiful views,decor to the personal hamper for humans and for your dog , a real lovely touch . The hill to the property could be tricky for some , however this is stated on the description of the property. Beds are soo comfortable . We had the most magical Christmas and hope to go back xx
Everything we could think of was in the house. The heating was cranked up, making it wonderfully warm. The general feel of the house was exactly the right amount of old-fashioned charm. Yes, the hill is very steep and you really do need a small car to get up there. It is perfectly manageable though, and even if you had a larger car there is plenty of parking at the bottom. The service we received throughout was excellent. Perfect for us
If you want peace and quiet, I recommend Hog Cottage. It has heaps of charm and character. I read all the reviews submitted before our visit, and to be fair they were all quite accurate. Overall, the cottage and service outweighed the negatives for me, even the steep hill turn to the cottage!
The only area for improvement I can suggest, is for larger base sheets for the master room bed, as they were too small and hence kept springing off during the night.
