We had a wonderful stay at Sheriff's Lodge with Alan and Kate! Road weary, Kate was the perfect hostess and took us to a spotless and spacious room. She took the time to share recommendations for dinner which are very nicely noted and starred with directions in the information provided in the room. We enjoyed the other guests as well... More

My husband, dog and I stayed here for one night in the dog friendly room, The Warren. The B&B is easy to find and in a good location, just 5 minutes downhill walk into Matlock centre. There are plenty of spaces in the car park. The Warren is in the basement which gives dog owners access to the beautiful garden.... More

The room was clean, spacious and had spectacular views. Alan took the time out to suggest some restaurants and even kindly printed us... More

We stayed here on recommendation and was very pleasantly surprised. Kate was very helpful and talkative. The room was excellent and clean. Tea and coffee in the room and fruit juice available in the lounge. This accommodation is so good we have booked to return.

Sheriff''s Lodge has it all - great location , comfy beds, spotlessly clean rooms, charming owners and breakfasts to die for. We stayed over the Bank Holiday weekend.
