Great cottage, well eqiupped and clean. Parking out front can be a challenge if you have a big car.
Comfy beds and decent sized kitchen. Bunk beds only suitable for kids.
Two bathrooms a big help
Absolutely gorgeous house, just looking at all the other reviews tells you what to expect, the house is beautifully decorated, the rooms are spacious, the heating works really well, while the log fire is welcoming, I’m hard pressed to find anything negative about this house. It’s a brilliantly central base to explore Derbyshire. It really does have everything you need. Would recommend to friends and family.
A gorgeous house, with plenty of space and ameneties. The living room is warm and cosy, and the log burner and Wii are perfect for a cosy night in. The Kitchen comes with everything you need, kettle, toaster and dishwasher to large fridge freezer and coffee maker. The coffee on wine on arrival was a very nice surprise, and enjoyed muchly. For 8 adults for a 30th Birthday it was a perfect location and choice. The Walks included in the Guest Information were ideal, and the views in the morning from the bedroom windows are just stunning. We timed our stay with the Matlock Bath Illuminations and Fireworks (which you can see without having to leave the house). Parking was also never an issue. The neighbours and local residents are all very friendly should you need anything too.
Should you wish to eat out Matlock is only a 20 minute walk (if you want to have a drink) or 5 minutes in the car, and thank you to Helen for the recommendations on places to eat.
Would really like to come and visit again in the future to see the local attractions, as well as for more climbing and walking. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quiet week/weekend away, or for a group looking for a base for good climbing and walking.
Only last thing to say is, Thank you Helen for such an amazing and welcoming home away from home.
We arrived in pouring rain after a long, traffic-delayed journey on the M1, but as soon as we entered the cottage it felt homely and welcoming. Everything we needed was provided and we loved the coffee machine! The cottage was very clean, all the beds were comfortable with good quality bedding. A hairdryer in every room is certainly a luxury. The kitchen is very well appointed and we enjoyed our evening meals sitting around the large table in the kitchen. The washing machine and dishwasher were much appreciated. All in all, this is a great base in a beautiful part of Derbyshire. Having a guaranteed parking space in front of the cottage was good, particularly after negotiating the steep and narrow roads leading up to Hope Terrace.
