A unique studio property with stunning views from the elevated balcony.

This rural retreat for two is down a quiet country lane and offers an architect - designed barn conversion with stunning views from the balcony onto the quaint town of Wirksworth in the Ecclesbourne Valley. A cosy studio , this conversion has a wood burning stove and under floor heating. Twenty minutes walk takes you into Wirksworth for shops, restaurants and take aways. Five minutes walk up the hill offers a friendly local pub serving home cooked food.
The Croft is a 300 year old former cow house and barn, now saved from collapse by the previous owner and renewed as a comfy holiday home. The property is on two floors; downstairs a dining kitchen and well appointed shower room, and upstairs a living area with a wood burning stove and double futon bed/ sofa. Perhaps its most interesting feature is the galvanised steel quadrant- shaped balcony, where guests can sit and have an alfresco drink whilst watching the sun go down, sitting at the bistro style table and chairs. The Croft is situated along a secluded, quiet country lane cul de sac. It has its own private parking space and is totally separate from the owner’s house which is nearby. There is a wonderful variety of wildlife here and at dusk tawny owls are often seen, along with badgers and foxes.

Kitchen/Diner: With table and chairs, electric halogen rings, combination microwave oven and fridge with ice box.

    A lovely conversion of an old barn, the space is perfect for a couple, kitchen and bathroom downstairs, spiral staircase leads to living/sleeping space with log burner and small balcony. On the whole we enjoyed the space and we loved the location. However, it feels like it's in need of some TLC. As noted by previous guests, we didn't find it in pristine condition. From outside, the entrance door and windows appeared unloved and dusty. The bathroom had patches of mildew around the shower and the window was dusty with many cobwebs. The extractor fan in the bathroom wasn't working properly, we gave the filter a quick clean to remove layers of fluff and dust and hey presto it worked like a charm. The terrace is quite overgrown with ivy and the planters empty and sad. None of these are big problems, the place just needs some love.

    The property is in a quite lane below the owners property, It has a little balcony with no real view other than the lane, And you have to make up the bed each night as it doubles up as a sofa. We found the property to be tidy and fairly clean just got the impression it hadn't been used for a few weeks. There was also nice welcome basket. The owner mysteriously appeared from the garden to say hello and apologies for the cleaner not being able to fully clean the property( fair enough as it was ok).

    Had a lovely stay, some fantastic scenery and great walks. Nice little welcome pack and killer log burner. Shame it rained almost our entire stay.

    Very charming and well equipped for its size with good 'green' credentials and in a beautiful location with several good walks from the door plus maps and guide books etc. We absolutely loved Wirksworth as it had everything you needed and was delightfully quirky with some good local restaurants. We visited for last minute, short break quite early in the season and though the work surfaces and important areas were clean there was a lot of dust on the windowsills and blinds and a number of cobwebs which I hope get removed before the busy summer period. The futon sofa bed was comfortable enough but rather stained and we were rather surprised that no mattress cover was provided as it was most definitely needed. We struggled to get any real heat out of the log burner and had to resort to the oil filled radiator one evening. Given the quality of the architecture I am sure the owners could have found a better quality table (a round one would have worked well) and a couple of more upright wooden dining chairs. It would also have been useful to have a shallow frying pan available for omelettes/pancakes etc rather than just a saute pan.

    Nice little cow shed conversion tucked down a narrow lane. Everything we needed for a short relaxing break before the mayhem of Xmas! Polite owners, nice welcome gift of bread & wine on arrival. Would stay again.
