About Eight The Green

Eight The Green has witnessed the activities of Middleton by Wirksworth for the last two hundred years. Sitting quietly opposite the village green, this gorgeous stone holiday cottage offers a peaceful escape where couples or individuals can retreat to the beauty of rural Derbyshire and the magnificent Peak District. You're a stone's throw from the National Park, within easy reach of Matlock, and, very important for a relaxed self-catering holiday, only a few minutes' stroll from two pubs, The Rising Sun and The Nelson Arms, if you want to socialise with the locals.

Derbyshire and the Peak District are splendid in all seasons. If your heart sings at the sight of a sensational view, with plenty of colour and interest, you'll love it here! Middleton's elevation is over 1,000 feet which means incredible views from places like Middleton Moor, where you can see Bolehill, Riber Castle, Alport Height, and Crich Stand. Many of the properties, including Eight The Green, were built to house workers in the local lead mines and limestone quarries. The limestone from this region is still highly coveted, and you can learn more about the history of this industry in the National Stone Centre just outside Middleton. Ten minutes’ walk across the moor is the High Peak Trail and Middleton Top Visitor Centre, where you can hire bicycles. Stay on the High Peak Trail to explore the Tissington Trail, White Peak Loop, Limestone Way, and the Pennine Bridleway.

You'll find many ways to have fun when you stay at Eight The Green. Go walking, cycling, mountain biking, and horse riding on your own or as part of a guided group. You're only a few miles from Matlock's shops and restaurants. Treat yourself to a swimming session at the thermal pool in Matlock Bath, or spend a pleasurable few hours exploring the waterfalls and the historic mill ruins in Lumsdale. Chatsworth House is just over 20 minutes north of the cottage, while Alton Towers is half an hour south. Rail enthusiasts will love a day out at Steeple Grange Light Railway or Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, whilst the Crich Tramway Museum offers a fascinating display of bygone-era transport. Buxton, Bakewell, Dovedale, and the plague village of Eyam are also within 30 minutes of Eight The Green.

Location (The Peak District)

Accommodation Comprises:

Eight The Green is a charming stone cottage with loads of character and accommodation over two levels.

Downstairs:

  • An enclosed entrance porch offers space to take off your coat and leave your shoes. The entrance lobby leads into the living room and kitchen.
  • If it's cold outside, put the kettle on and light the log burner, luxuriating in the cosy warmth and the joyful feeling of being on holidays with no timetable or agenda. The living room has a sofa, armchair, dining table, and a Smart TV with a Roku Streambar for relaxed nights in front of a film.
  • New oak worktops give the kitchen a stylish country vibe, made even more lovely with an efficient induction stove, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, and a thoughtful welcome pack provided by the owners.

Upstairs:

  • A king-sized bed and dual aspect windows make the bedroom a place where you will sleep soundly. One window looks over the village while the other has views of Black Rocks, Bolehill, and Alport Heights to inspire you from the moment you open the curtains.
  • Soak in the bath or use the overhead shower with ample hot water in the bathroom. Underfloor heating ensures it's always a relaxing room, even on chilly mornings.

Outside: A bench in the sunny front garden overlooks the village green, and an enclosed courtyard to the rear is perfect for al fresco dining. There is a lockable outhouse for bike storage. Free parking is readily available on The Green; there is also a free public car park beside The Nelson Arms.

Additional Information: Utilities, fast fibre WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. The property is suitable for adults only - no children or pets. Please note that although there is plenty of head room in all the rooms there are a few low ceilings on the corridors and stairs. There is a handrail on the carpeted stairs but they are quite steep.
