Description

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 peaceful country 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, especially birds. At dusk tawny owls are often seen, and sometimes foxes and badgers too.

Ground Floor: Kitchen/Diner: With table and chairs, electric halogen rings, combination microwave oven and fridge with ice box.
Shower Room: With WC, wash basin, shower and shaver point.
Spiral wooden staircase leads to.....

First Floor: Studio Lounge/Bedroom Area: With futon/sofa bed, flat screen TV, DVD, wood burning stove, free view and radio/CD player

Under floor heating and a portable oil filled radiator, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Initial logs and sticks included, remainder at £5 per basket. Parking bay for 1 car. Use of balcony with table two chairs and barbecue.

    Great little place, well looked after and like a Tardis it is so well designed, we spent a week and immediately booked another. The area is beautiful with more walks than you could do in a lifetime. Loads of National Trust and English Heritage properties nearby. Don’t be put off by the apparent small size of this property. This place has everything you need. The balcony has lovely views across the valley, loads of birds flitting around and is the perfect place to wind down after a long day walking before strolling to the pub (possibly the friendliest we have ever been in). The microwave doubles as a conventional oven and we cooked most nights with no problem. The sofa bed is comfortable and if you don’t bother to put it back to a sofa each day is fine to lay back and watch TV.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; What a great review, thanks for your appreciation. Love the Tardis reference.

    Had a great time at the croft, futon/bed was uncomfortable,would benefit from sprung sofa bed

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks for leaving your feedback ...... glad you had a good time at the Croft but sorry you found the bed not to your liking. There have been only positive comments on the comfort score since your visit, so maybe our futon bed was just not for you. Beds are a very personal taste and maybe the firmer futon style is not what you are used to. I should point out that it is in fact the thickest and most comfy futon I personally have ever tried.

    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.

    Loved it! So quiet and cosy, and pub just a five minute walk away - Wirksworth lovely too, just a 20-minute stroll. We will be back.

    small but cosy and adequate for 2 adults and a dog. enjoyed sitting on the balcony and the quiet location. the only thing we missed was a cooker. ideal area for the dog as there was very little traffic.

    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.
