Agricola House is the perfect space for a celebratory short break with extended family or friends, as well as a hen weekend. The beautiful house is in the heart of Wirksworth, only a short stroll from the shops, cafes, restaurants, wine bars and pubs that make this charming Derbyshire town such a favourite. The award-winning cottage comfortably sleeps up to 14 guests in 7 luxurious bedrooms, with living spaces designed for socialising and having fun.
Wirksworth is a wonderful choice for a holiday close to the Peak District. Not only does the town have excellent amenities but it is also ideally located for some of the area's favourite attractions like Chatsworth House, as well as fantastic footpaths and cycling routes, including the traffic-free High Peak Trail. Wirksworth is close to Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock, all of which have an excellent variety of independent shops and markets, while Chesterfield and Derby are also within easy reach with a great choice of High Street names.
The space at Agricola House is ideal for arranging in-house activities. Pamper yourself with a spa-day, making good use of the house's sauna and bringing in the services of a mobile beauty therapist or a yoga instructor. Hire a chef to cook your special celebration meal to follow a memorable wine-tasting experience, or spend the day learning a new skill together, like painting or baking.
Agricola House is perfect for your group holiday in the Peak District. Its space and interiors are welcoming enough that you may never want to leave. However, if you do go outside, you'll find yourself surrounded by an exciting array of places to eat, drink and shop, and close to some of the region's best sights and attractions.
The owners are keen to ensure their guests enjoy the holiday of their dreams and can recommend local businesses and services to ensure your stay is everything you imagine. Please see their website for more information.
