Nestled in the heart of Middleton by Wirksworth and close to the historic towns of Cromford, Matlock and Wirksworth, Eight The Green makes the perfect base for exploring Derbyshire and the Peak District by foot, bike or car. Overlooking the village green and hills beyond, the refurbished self-catering cottage offers a cosy holiday escape for two all year round, with excellent walking and cycling routes from the door.
Eight The Green is around 200 years old and has recently been refurbished to a high standard. Located towards the upper end of Middleton by Wirksworth, the cottage is just a short walk away from The Nelson Arms pub, a well-serviced bus stop and Middleton Moor’s far-reaching views. It makes the perfect escape for two, offering a cosy retreat after a day exploring the nearby hills or historic towns and villages.
The accommodation is split over two floors: living room and kitchen on the ground floor, bedroom and bathroom to the first floor. The front garden and rear courtyard provide plenty of outdoor space and offer a seat in the sun throughout the day.
Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi are included. A few ‘essentials’ will be found in the kitchen on arrival, and logs and kindling will be provided to get started with the wood burner.
Please be aware that at present we don’t accept children or pets, and the cottage is non-smoking.
NB Although the rooms offer plenty of head height, there are a few low ceilings on the connecting corridors and stairs – guests would be well advised to follow the ‘mind your head’ signs! The carpeted stairs are quite steep but there is a handrail.
After leaving your outdoor kit in the porch, you’ll find a comfortable living room with a wood burning stove, dining table, armchair, and sofa handmade in Derbyshire. A 37″ television with Roku Streambar provides streaming services via fast fibre broadband. The newly fitted kitchen has oak worktops, induction hob, electric oven, microwave, separate fridge and freezer and integrated washing machine. In warmer months, you can head outside to the sheltered sunny courtyard to top up the tan or enjoy some al fresco dining.
Moving upstairs, a well-proportioned bedroom has two windows looking out to the surrounding village with Black Rocks, Bolehill and Alport Heights beyond; a king size metal framed bed and hybrid mattress offer a restful night’s sleep. There’s plenty of storage with a hanging rail and chest of drawers. The spacious bathroom allows for a relaxing soak after a busy day of discovery, having a bath with thermostatic shower over and underfloor heating.
To the front of the cottage, you can take a seat on the bench and keep an eye on village life. A lockable outhouse opposite can be used for bike storage if required. Although there is no parking space at the property, there is plenty of free parking around The Green and in the public car park beside The Nelson Arms. You can pull up outside the property for luggage drop off and pick up.

Arrival and Departure Time
Every effort will be made to have the property available from 16:00 on the day of arrival. The property must be vacated by 10:00 on the day of departure.

The property owner takes no responsibility for the personal possessions of the holidaymaker or the holidaymaker’s party. Vehicles and possessions are left entirely at the risk of the holidaymaker.
We would like to think the holidaymaker and party would treat the property as they would their own home and at the end of the holiday the property is left in a clean and tidy condition. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for cleaning should the property not be left in a similar condition to the way it was found at the start of the holiday.
The holidaymaker should make every effort to keep the property, fixtures and fittings and all contents in the same state of repair and condition as at the start of the holiday. Any accidental damage or breakages should be reported to the property owner (or their representative) prior to departure. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for damage and breakages although it should be noted that minor breakages and reasonable wear and tear (in the opinion of the property owner) will not be charged for.
Every endeavour is made to ensure your stay with us is memorable for all the right reasons. However, we do recognise that from to time things do go wrong. In these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the holidaymaker to make any such problem known to the property owner (or their representative) immediately it becomes apparent, thereby giving the property owner the opportunity to correct the situation. Unless this procedure is followed, no subsequent claim will be entertained.
The property owner will make every endeavour to rectify any identified problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
Any dispute, claim or other matter which may arise in relation to your booking will be governed by English law and you agree that any dispute will be dealt with by the courts of England and Wales.
