House
Lovely Georgian house sleeping 12, ideal for extended family gatherings, in Wirksworth near the Peak District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Durham House, Wirksworth, Derbyshire, sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms.

Durham House is a beautiful Georgian house, set over 3 floors, which has retained its original features, with 2 ranges and 7 fireplaces. Windows and doors are all original and there are even two sets of staircases - one for the servants and one for everyone else....although nowadays it is a good opportunity for children to burn off their energy or occasionally for people to get lost in the house!

The sunny and enclosed garden is set on two levels, with the top level mainly laid to lawn with some flower borders. The lower level (which can be blocked off) has a pond on one side and lawn on the other, with an old fashioned path to wander around. There is a patio garden to the side of the house, with a large table and chairs for al fresco dining and barbecue facilities.

Durham House sleeps 12 comfortably, in 6 large bedrooms (2 kings, 2 doubles, 2 twin rooms), arranged over the top 2 floors of the house. Original fireplaces are in most bedrooms, although not used any more, and all of the windows enjoy beautiful views across to Wirksworth Moor. There are 2 bathrooms, both with showers, one of which is separate and the other is over the bath.

The house has 2 sitting rooms, one with an open fire and 3 sofas; the other has the original range and a TV. The kitchen is well equipped and a separate dining room seats 12. The utility room has a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

Off street parking for 3 cars and plenty of space to store bikes.

Durham House is in a great location for walking, cycling, exploring the beauty of the Peak District or just catching up with friends and family. The house is on a quiet road but only 5 minutes walk to the centre of Wirksworth, with a number of independent shops, an independent cinema and some lovely places to eat and drink.

There are plenty of activities if you want something more adventurous - white water canoeing, sailing lessons at nearby Carsington Water, rock climbing and bouldering or mountain biking. For children, there is a heritage railway in Wirksworth, two playgrounds and slightly further afield are Gullivers Kingdom and Alton Towers.

If your group is larger, another cottage next door sleeps a further 4.
