“Worth every penny...”
Reviewed July 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you're intending on staying in Matlock but you're a little dissuaded by the idea of B&B's, this contemporary apartment would be ideal for a solo traveler or couple who are looking for a clean, reasonably priced self-catering option that is perfectly situated to explore Matlock, it's surrounding areas and other parts of Derbyshire.

Firstly, the location - the apartment located just off the town centre, literally a stone's throw from Matlock train station - so they'll be no heavy lugging of rucksacks or suitcases for miles as it's just a short 30 second walk from platform to the front door of the apartment.

Additionally,the apartment is just off the main town square so should you wish to find something to eat, drink or entertain yourself, another thirty seconds walk in another direction takes you right into the heart of Matlock and it's numerous shops, varied eateries, pubs and bars.

If you don't mind walking, then the cable cars and the Tor mountainside in Matlock Bath isn't too far away either, around twenty minutes or so on foot at a decent pace. That said, if you've got your own transport it would be around 2-3 minutes though there is always the option of a regular bus service that runs past the apartment - once again, the accommodation proving to be ideally placed.

The apartment itself is contemporary, spacious and has all the necessary items to self-cater - perfect for a solo traveler or couple. It has a long, comfortable sofa facing the TV which is perfect to unwind on, a modern kitchen and a sizeable, clean bathroom with a powerful corner shower.

The bedroom is adjoined to the living area though is partitioned off as a separate area and is once again, contemporary and tastefully decorated with comfortable double bed and pillows. Additionally, there is plenty of wardrobe space and inside that, seemingly as a bonus there was a fistful of hangers, an iron and hair dryer so you don't have to bring your own!

Personally, I traveled alone and whilst I did make my own meals on a couple of occasions, I found the temptations of all the great cuisines available in the town too hard to resist - but that's just me.

Being an absolute technophile, I missed the fact that I wasn't able to access any WiFi whilst I stayed here but that's a small, insignificant and personal thing of mine, a nonenity, even - being a city boy I sometimes do find it hard to go a day without spending at least an hour needlessly frittering away the day on the internet... something, which, I'd imagine most people who go to the Derbyshire Dales have no intention of doing anyway :-)

Securing the apartment was easy; within minutes of registering my interest, Karen, the owner, had contacted me and advised me of everything I needed to know regarding the rental and was in contact during my stay if I required anything else or any further assistance. :-)

With all those considerably good points in mind, yes - I would happily recommend this rental to anyone considering a holiday or break in Matlock or the surrounding areas.
