House Rules

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!

A fantastic, quirky little retreat for two. Centrally located in the Peak District, close to lots of things to do. Wirksworth itself is a lovely little market town and The Retreat is two minutes walk from the centre. We had a fabulous stay - a cosy Christmas away from it al…

Ourstanding location. Took by the cosy and quirky chapel which is really well equipped and well presented inside. Waking up in the morning to a very nice and different view of the grounds the chapel lies within. If you like to dissappear and want time away, this is perfect!😀😁

You were our ideal guests! Booked the day before but the cleaner was ill, so Adele happily made up the bed herself and did without flowers and fresh milk. So glad you liked the Retreat and welcome back anytime - reduced rates for returnees!

We thought it'd be really scary staying in a graveyard! But it felt really cosy and safe. The chapel felt like home and the underfloor heating was amazing. The bed was so comfy and all the information provided by John about walks in the Peak District and local amenities/restauran…

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 mo…

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…

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

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 enj…
