A substantial period house only a five minute riverside walk from the centre of Matlock. The owners have thought of virtually everything to make your stay very comfortable.....the large kitchen is comprehensively equipped, a "snug" room, next to the kitchen with a sofa and comfortable chairs and two cupboards full of a wide selection of games, maps and books, is a great area for the kids to play. Four double & two twin-bedded rooms, of varying sizes to suit a large family or groups of friends, are nicely furnished with quality fittings and very comfortable beds. We stayed for 6 days just after Christmas and into the New Year, and a nice touch was the ground floor rooms had been decorated with a big Christmas tree and tasteful decorations.
Snow lay on the ground outside, and it was bitterly cold for three days but the house was wonderfully warm with a very efficient central heating system and plenty of hot water.
We loved the location in old Matlock, with great walks along the riverside and around the town, or up past the church onto High Tor overlooking Matlock and the surrounding Derbyshire countryside. Only one disappointment and frustration...the WiFi system was incredibly slow...even for basic internet surfing or emails.More
