My husband and i stayed here for one night and certainly wish we could have stayed longer. The room was quiet and restful and spotlessly clean, comfy bed with a lovely breakfast. The owners and staff were very welcoming and the location is fantastic. We will definitely be returning.

We booked last minute for a bank holiday break and were not disappointed, a lovely room overlooking the garden and very comfy bed meant we quickly re-charged those batteries. A lovely hearty breakfast, chosen the night before with a tick box form, set us up for a day's walking. Good pubs nearby and a fabulous Thai restaurant around the right...

Traditional B&B. Had a great time here booked this for myself and a few guests. Rooms were nice, good location and the breakfast was a good start for the morning. Back garden was peaceful and to top it off we had good weather so no complaints. Would say again if in Matlock. Easy walk from train station.

Great breakfast, lovely family and staff. Our room was a bit drafty due to fire exit not closing properly. Other than that, couldn't really fault it. A stones throw from good pubs, bars and restaurants
