Hog Cottage – Idyllic Derbyshire Luxury Holiday Cottage

The cottage which sleeps up to 4 guests is delightfully located in the market town of Wirskworth. Leaving the town you start to climb up a hill towards the small hamlet of Gorsey Bank and its quaint haphazard collection of cottages which was once the home to of a Victorian fabric Mill and a Hat Factory. The delightful assortment of cottages reminds you of the smuggles seaside village of Polperro but without the sea or fishermen and if you pause for a moment its easy to imagine the hustle and bustle of people going about their daily business in this tiny Mill community.

At the very top of Gorsey Bank you will find Hog Cottage which is tucked between another two cottages. Its a picture postcard cottage and in the summer the cottage garden is alive with colour and a stunning Wisteria climbs gracefully up the front of the Cottage. Its hard to imagine that this beautiful cottage was once two dwellings and housed the Hat Factory workers families. Once inside the cleverly converted cottage feels spacious and offers modern day luxuries. You enter the Cottage through a stable front door into a snug area with a desk and easy chairs which offers a perfect place for chilling out on summer evenings. From the sung a door leads to a lovely cottage style sitting room with a cosy gas living flame fire and comfy sofa and two chairs.

At the other end of the snug there is a archway through to a newly appointed luxury Kitchen which leads into a stunning Dining Room with a grand dining table which looks magnificent against the stone walls, high ceiling and exposed beams.  The dining room leads out onto a secure patio area and in the summer months it provides a wonderful alfresco breakfast area with a small bistro table and chairs.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one offering a Colour TV/DVD and new King Sized bed the other with an option of two single beds or King Size. There is a luxury appointed Bathroom with bath and separate spacious Power Shower.

This ideal Derbyshire Country Cottage is south facing and takes advantage of its position with a cottage garden at the front which is mainly laid with flower beds and a flagged stoned area making it a perfect summer sitting area with its stone brick BBQ.  The most charming part of the cottage is the attention to detail and the quirky collection of pigs which adorn the cottage, from cute cuddly soft toys to wooden and pottery pigs they add to the special touch from the owner.

What you can see from the Bedroom Windows: The valley rolling down to the town and far reaching views of the country fields.

Dogs welcome Cottage: A Derbyshire Dogs Welcome Cottage and all four legged friends receive a special doggy welcome pack.

Romantic breaks: Hog Cottage is a perfect Derbyshire Romantic Cottage and on request you will receive a good bottle of Bubbly and Chocolates.

Hog Cottage is a idyllic Derbyshire country cottage offering luxury accommodation, its warm welcoming atmosphere is a perfect place for romantic hideaway or ideal for a small family wishing to explore Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Things you should know:Because of Hog Cottage unique location the entrance road to the cottage is very steep and narrow and although there is parking for one car on the lane outside the cottage many guests find the hill a challenging experience and prefer to park at the bottom of Gorsey Bank.

The garden at the front is mainly laid with flagstones and then flower bed2 and shrubs and there is a small drop wall down to the service road.

Guests Comments

“Really fantastic cottage and just what the whole family needed. Cottage was very well equipped and was a real home from home. The kids loved all the little pigs everywhere which was a really nice touch. You can tell a lot of thought has been put into equipping this beautiful cottage. Great walks and the kids loved the days cycling at nearby Carsington. Thanks again for all you effort.”

“We had a wonderful stay at Hog Cottage. What a pretty cottage and so well equipped and what a fantastic dining room, we really enjoyed our meals at night in this wonderful room. We had some great days out at Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. We can’t wait to return next summer”
