This family run friendly B&B is situated high up above Matlock with superb views. Excellent breakfast and kind hospitality. If walking, or cycling up to it or need to go out to eat without transport though, its very high up several hairpin roads. Depends on how much you need to prove your fitness level!

I recently stayed at The Gables for my 6th anniversary with my other half/New Years Eve and I can definitely say it was a delight to stay here! The owners were so welcoming, the room and bathroom were really clean and the view of Matlock Bath and The Heights Of Abraham were unbelievable. I'm so pleased to have stayed here...

Arrived late on Saturday & stayed in the Derwent suite with my fiance & our 21 month old daughter. Its the best B&B room I've ever stayed in, a luxurious en suite, a gorgeous comfy bed & to be honest, we came for some peace & quiet & a decent night's sleep which is what we got. John welcomed us...

This B and B was well run, we were welcomed with a pot of freshly brewed tea, and a slice of homemade cake. The room was clean, bright and perfectly stocked with homemade shortbread and a cafetiere with proper coffee, perfect for a coffee snob like myself. The breakfast was plentiful, well cooked and locally sourced with many options available....

A 4 night stay which did not disappoint. We watched the Olympics and felt the Gables deserved gold medals for welcome, helpfulness,room breakfast and not to forget the cake! We were really able to relax. Thank you so much John and Sue.
