Hog Cottage is an idilic Derbyshire Luxury Holiday Cottage and is located in the market town of Wirskworth. Leaving the town you start to climb up a hill towards the small hamlet of Gorsey Bank and its quaint haphazard collection of cottages which was once the home to of a Victorian fabric Mill and a Hat Factory. The delightful assortment of cottages reminds you of the smuggles seaside village of Polperro but without the sea or fishermen and if you pause for a moment its easy to imagine the hustle and bustle of people going about their daily business in this tiny Mill community.

At the very top of Gorsey Bank you will find Hog Cottage which is tucked between another two cottages. Its a picture postcard cottage and in the summer the cottage garden is alive with colour and a stunning Wisteria climbs gracefully up the front of the Cottage. Its hard to imagine that this beautiful cottage was once two dwellings and housed the Hat Factory workers families. Once inside the cleverly converted cottage feels spacious and offers modern day luxuries.
