The Local Area
The Wriggly Tin is situated in the beautiful valley of Millers Dale, a stunning area of Derbyshire, with the river Wye running through limestone hills. This quirky holiday home offers luxury accommodation, it was originally built in the mid 1800’s along with the now disused railway, it has been meticulously rebuilt to a high standard and offers pure quality and comfort. Right on the doorstep of The Monsal Trail and near The River Wye for perfect access to the very best countryside, for walking, cycling or just relaxing.
Millers Dale is a beautiful village nestled in the fabulous Peak District, following the course of the River Wye. From the Wriggly Tin you can explore the hills and valleys along the Monsal Trail, experience the breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside, discover tranquillity as you amble along to Water-cum-jolly-dale, or relax as you and your family or friends picnic and play on the banks of the River Wye.
This stunning location offers you a holiday full of memories, and will appeal to photographers for the local flora and fauna including rare orchids, there are also exciting ascents for rock climbers at Ravenstor and Chee Dale, including watching the abseiling events from the nearby viaduct. The Monsal Trail has just undergone a major overhaul, all the 6 tunnels between Buxton(Blackwell Mill) and Bakewell were opened in May 2011, and we now have a perfect car free route for Bikes, Walkers, and Pushchairs along the 6 miles (12 miles return) from the Wriggly Tin to Bakewell and back. The route has opened up more breath-taking views lost with the closure of the Railway line, and there are new information points along the track to add even more interest.
