Description

This converted detached stone barn has a contemporary feel and offers good holiday accommodation situated in a rural location accessed by a no-through lane. It is only minutes from the centre of the old market town of Wirksworth. Originally a village in its own right, Bolehill became part of Wirksworth during the town’s expansion during the 19th and 20th centuries. Bolehill is adjacent to Black Rock, a local landmark and a short walk from the High Peak Trail. You can take the footpath directly from the doorstep of the property into Wirksworth, where you will find antique shops, restaurants, pubs, gift shops and local market. You can also walk to the High Peak Trail, where you can walk or cycle for miles. Matlock, Matlock Bath and the World Heritage Site of Arkwrights Mills are only 3 miles away. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell and Carsington Reservoir are all within an easy reach. The property is an ideal base from which to explore this stunning area.

Downriver lies Matlock Bath. This historic village is set in a steep-sided limestone gorge with whitewashed cottages perched along the hill side. Nearer the river a more `touristy' atmosphere prevails with its many attractions from museums and cafes to souvenir shops. On the western side of the gorge is the Heights of Abraham which is popular with visitors due to its superb views and amenities, including restaurant, picnic area and caf�. A cable car can be taken to the top from Matlock Bath railway station.

Between Matlock and Matlock Bath is High Tor, a broad limestone cliff rising some 400 feet above the River Derwent. Around High Tor there is a network of paths suitable for exploring the area and from which to experience the spectacular views. In the grounds below there are refreshment facilities, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks and two caverns.

Carsington Water is ahuge draw for outdoor enthusiastswith outdoor activities including walking, cycling, fly fishing, birdwatching, sailing, canoeing, and windsurfing all available. Situated in Asbourne and within easy reach of the Peak Districtit has a sailing club next door to the Visitor Centre and cycle hire. Fly fishing is available from the bank and from boats that can be hired from the Fishing Lodge. There is plentiful car parking and for young children there is a children's playground.

To the south is the market town of Wirksworth, which is one of the oldest towns in the area, with a central marketplace in which markets have been held since the reign of Edward I. Here visitors will find many fine old buildings of great character including a magnificent Jacobean house known as Babington House. The town is now a small bustling and thriving local centre with a selection of shops and pubs.
