Lea Wood is situated between the villages of Crich, Lea and Holloway with the popular towns of Cromford, Wirksworth and Matlock a short distance away offering an array of amenities. We believe the property would ideally suit a family and an early internal inspection is absolutely essential to avoid disappointment.

The area is a haven for those who enjoy the outdoors, with direct access to the High Peak Trail, mature woodlands and canal-side walks.
