The Old Lockup was a great stay, the old magistrate's house and its rooms are lovely and very charming. It's in a great location right by the peak district and Wirksworth itself is a very old english village worth exploring. Tim the host was super, met us with tea when we arrived in the evening and provided a great breakfast... More

I was visiting friends nearby and chose the Old Lockup for it's quirkiness. The Magistrates Room is beautifully decorated and the bed was really comfortable. It was scrupulously clean too. Tim is a great host, making me a cup of tea upon arrival and cooks a fantastic breakfast which is very unhurried. I will definitely stay again when in the... More

We needed a stopping off point between the South Coast and Northumbria and so started looking for places around the half way point - Derbyshire. The complication? We'd have a dog with us. No problem at The Old Lockup. Us and our furry friend were made very welcome. We stayed in the Magistrates room which has, as others have said,... More

I spent two nights at The Old Lock Up and look forward to returning there in the future. There is so much character in the place - The Magistrate's Room was delightful and the bed was really comfortable. The en-suite is compact but spotlessly clean and, as others have said, there are some lovely touches (the chocolate truffles were delish!)... More

We have just returned home from our second visit to this lovely little B & B, and we were not disappointed! Lovely room, excellent breakfast, and friendly and helpful owner, Tim. Wirksworth is a very interesting little town with nice walks and historic buildings to visit. We would highly recommend the Old Lockup.

Stayed and ate 2 nights. Our mIn reason for staying was to use it as a base for cycling the Monsal Trail. Fantastic scenery and the 6 tunnel you ride through make it verydifferent from other trails We agree entirely with Mat B's comments in August. The host was very attentive and thoughtf. Would only add one thing WONDERFUL home... More
