“Fantastic house in a fantatsic setting”
Reviewed October 8, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Derwent House is a lovely period property rammed with interesting and quirky furniture and ornaments. You can really tell that the owners have put a lot of time and effort into getting the house just right for their guests. All the rooms were nicely appointed and had everything in them that we needed. The house was really comfy with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms/ensuites. There was loads of space for us (12 in total) to spread out in the house and yet still feel together and cosy. It was a great venue for a friends reunion! The location is perfect for wandering around Matlock and the house overlooked a lovely park and stream. While being nearly in the heart of Matlock it did not feel like being in the town centre and there was no town noise. We had a really good stay and would firmly recommend the house to our friends and anyone else.

“What a brillant house, everything I could have wanted was there!”
Reviewed September 28, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Met in Derbyshire for a family get together. The location of Derwent House was great when travelling from different parts of the UK. Ifwas a great venue to explore the Peak District, some wanted to walk whereas the others hit the shops! The house was individually decorated and has a lot of fine touches. The owners had thought of everything, with so much space, all 12 of us were able to enjoy each other's company without feeling crowded. All in all a wonderful place to stay. And the excellent wifi access was a real bonus for teenagers and adults alike!

“Fantastic well appointed home which is ideal to enjoy time with a group of friends and/ or family just beautiful!.”
Reviewed July 17, 2011 for a stay in October 2010

This is my 4th Booking and not my last already booked for next year!!! Derwent house is an excellent property which is so well positioned to explore Derbyshire. It is comfortable and very well appointed with everything you need to make your break memorable. The attention to detail is fantastic and the welcome pack is always a bonus!!
The house is ideal for us, this time it was a group of friends all couples coming from Essex, Bridlington Yorkshire and Sheffield for a weekend get together. All the bedrooms have character and very comfortable and just worked so well. We ate in the Derwent house and found the kitchen to have more appliances than at home!!! everything for full english/ buffet to sunday dinner could be managed in the kitchen. And it was great having 12 of us sit round the dining table laughing eating and of course drinking good wine. next time we are palnning on enhancing our weekend with booking pampering treatments through the owners we cant wait!!!! Do not change anything just first class in every way!!! thanks and keep up the good work.
