Quirky house with very good accomodation for a family
Left on 06/08/2010 for a stay in April 2010 | Karen Dawson
Wirksworth was a quiet village but also had good facilities for eating, drinking and purchasing any requirements. The house was quirky with good accomodation for a family.
The house was well equipped and generally clean.
The bath was fab but it took a little getting used to going for a shower in a cupboard!!
The stairs are quite steep - not for very young children or less mobile - this was not a problem though for our party.
We had a fab stay - lots of walking and a day at nearby alton Towers too. A great holiday.
