El lugar

The Retreat is especially for those who like quiet neighbours!
It is more than 200 years old – built in 1812 as a Chapel of Rest in the middle of a small graveyard owned by the Baptist Church. The Retreat itself is mostly one big, light and welcoming room, a wonderful airy space with cast-iron lancet stained glass windows with lacy cafe-style curtains looking out across the cemetery to farmhouses which dot the slopes of the hillside beyond. Formally desolate with a tree growing through the roof, the Retreat has been saved from ruin and re-invented as an atmospheric holiday let. It is now Grade 2 Listed.
Stay here to discover the town of Wirksworth on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District. Described as “the Gem of the Peak” and one of the most traditional and unspoilt towns in Derbyshire, the town has more listed buildings than anywhere else in Derbyshire! Centred around its marketplace, it is a town of picturesque alleys and craftsmen's yards, of old cottages and lead merchants’ houses.

Disponible para huéspedes

The graveyard although open to the public, rarely gets visitors, and is a peaceful and tranquil spot to sit and reflect. There is a small free unlimited car park just opposite; first come first served. Other free unlimited parking is close by. Guests will be sent the code for the key safe on booking, and the cottage is cleaned before your stay by a professional cleaner.

Otros aspectos destacables

In the Retreat there is a folder containing maps, and lots of information about local attractions.

Reglas de la casa

Basically all we ask is that you leave the Retreat as you find it and replace any breakages. We are dog-friendly but request that you keep your dog off the furniture and the bed - it will probably want to spend most of its time lying on the beautiful under floorheated slate tiled floor anyway!

Great place to stay, really quiet and easy to reach other areas of the peak district from Wirksworth.

The Retreat is a charming and unique lodging in a charming and unique village on the edge of the Peak District. As many have commented, the creative and efficient use of space is impressive. The two of us stayed for six nights total (from the entries in the guest book, I think most stays are in the two-night range), so we were a good test case for that use of space being workable/liveable. We were quite comfortable and very much appreciated the quiet and reclusiveness of the place: Even as we were in the midst of Wirksworth, and on a bank holiday weekend with Well Dressings and carnival festivities, no less, we had a world to ourselves in the converted chapel itself. With the wonderfully comfortable bed, thick stone walls, and black-out curtains, we slept long and soundly after our busy days of hiking all the amazing areas around Wirkswirth.

Thanks for this lovely review Laura. You're quite right that most people only book for weekends, and we never quite know why - there is so much to do in and around Wirksworth! Hope to have you to stay again. Reduced rates for returnees!

The Retreat is well placed for those that want to take advantage of the beautiful location around. John provided all the information needed to make the most of our stay. The retreat had everything that we would need. We stayed at the retreat because of the quirky nature of the property. It has many original features, including the windows. If staying in winter this does mean that it is a little drafty even with the underfloor heating so warm clothes are needed. Do not let this out you off, it is a lovely place and i would defintely recommend others to stay here.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. No-one else has ever said that the under floor heating wasn't more than sufficient to heat the Retreat, in fact other guests have described it as "snug and cosy". Perhaps the heating needs adjusting and I will of course check it out myself. Welcome back anytime

A gorgeous charming property in a lovely town with plenty of places to eat and drink and gorgeous walks from your doorstep. The graveyard is definitely a good place to stay if you enjoy a quiet nights sleep! Thank you for a lovely stay.

So please you liked the Retreat Zoe. It is indeed so quiet yet only a few hundred yards from the centre of a bustling market town. Welcome again anytime.

The key was easy to find and we absolutely loved how secluded the property was. We absolutely loved coming back from chilly Autumnal walks in the Peak District to this quirky home from home. Can't tell you how much my partner and I appreciated the underfloor heating; just what you want waking up on a cold October morning. We had everything we could have wanted staying here and regret not staying here longer. The graveyard adds nothing but character... not sure our family and friends agree though! Thank you John for providing such a unique property.

I had a very nice stay at the chapel. It was quiet, charming, and, quite frankly, it made my best friend quite jealous. I was lucky to get to stay in Wirksworth as it is a very charming town with great people. Over all when I come back with my Husband we will be coming back here. The heated floors made my feet very happy in the chilly 6°c mornings and the two wall heaters were almost overzealous when turned on. The kitchen was decently supplied and anything you need can be found in town. All together easy and charming for my holiday. I loved it.

We are a family of four living in rural France. We love it here but also love returning to Wirksworth where we used to live. We bought the Retreat in 2012 and have enjoyed renting it out to holidaymakers since. There's not many places you can stay in a graveyard!. We hope you enjoy the books and dvs waiting for you there!

We hope you will find our property like a 'home from home', with lots of books and dvds
