Spent a week here in a group of 18 and had a great week walking. House is a little tired. The double glazing is gone on some rooms and the woodwork could do with a good painting. The views from the upstairs windows are fantastc with the windows open. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are warm. Our shower in Room 6 was adequate. Room 1 tele only had BBC for some unknown reason. The dining room and lounge/ bar were more than adequate. The kitchen was a tadge smal for 18 people and could have done with an extra fridge freezer. The washing machine works but you wouldnt guess it.
The hot tub and sauna were a useful extra although the spa garden area is very slippy and H&S notices in the booklet on the bsr stating this are not enough and a solution needs to be found. I was well aware and stll slipped on the decking.
Parking was adequate.
Overall we had a great week
My family booked Robertswood for my special birthday, with people coming from all parts of the country. The house certainly has the "wow" factor, particularly the hot-tub which was very well used by adults and children alike. The views are fantastic from the front rooms and front garden which we used to eat following a barbeque.
Every bedroom was beautifully furnished - maybe some of the top-floor rooms could be cool in winter judging by the condensation in the mornings. The kitchen is really well equipped and was more than fitting for the 18 of us. My grandchildren loved the place, and the owners were more than accommodating with high chairs etc., and loved playing "barmaids" in the bar area.
All in all, it's the perfect place for a family or friends' celebration / re-union.
We stayed at Robertswood house last weekend and what an amazing time we had!
There were 15 of us, mixture of couples and singles. all in our 30s
It was a real WOW moment when we drove up the hill to the house, it really is stunning and so are the views. We spent the first few hours just sitting in the garden relaxing with some wine enjoying the late sunshine and enjoying the view. Then it was inside for home made cocktails at Robertwood's very own bar! we all took it in turns to do our best Bet Lynch impression!
The cottage is clean, nicely decorated and furnished throughout, the kitchen especially is well equipped as are the beautiful bathrooms.
Close enough to Matlock to walk, or there are plenty of local taxi numbers behind the bar!
We will definetly return, David, (the owner) was excellent and so friendly and helpful when we were booking.

I stayed at this property with eight girlfriends to celebrate mine and a friends birthday and it was fabulous and in a great location within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to go. The rooms were clean and tidy, each with their own bathroom and individual decor. The dining room and kitchen were immaculate and the lounge area, including a bar which can be used to stock your own drinks was plenty big enough for us all. There's a tv with free view in the lounge and also in each of the bedrooms. All in all I can't fault the property or the location and would definitely recommend it to a large group looking to get away. The only downside is if you're less mobile and don't have a car as it's a very steep drive up to the house.
Had a great weekend. Very spacious house with excellent kitchen facilities to cater for a large group.
Made full use of the spa garden.
The only observations would be the house would benefit from a larger fridge and a freezer, more rubbish/recycling facilities and a touch up with the decor in two bedrooms.
We visited the house in may half term as a family get together plenty of room for the 16 of us the house was great with every thing you needed the only fault was the lack of cleaning of the house on arrival kitchen is in need of a deep clean but all had a great time
This is our fifth visit to this excellent house. The service is good the rooms are spacious and the facilities great. It is value for money and in a superb location. The owners are attentive and listen to any issues that may arise. A very worthwhile destination and a superb place to enjoy relaxation and a great base for hill walking in Matlock and surrounding district.
