“Perfect cosy cottage with lots of character”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Matchbox is in a brilliant location so near to the centre of town and such a wonderful, cosy cottage. We loved the bath, the log burner and sunny garden especially plus the amazing walks from the door. Wirksworth is a great place with so much going on and we definitely would have come back to Matchbox, except. during our stay we bought a cottage in the town for ourselves!

“Cosy and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A cosy cottage, nicely decorated with a fabulous free standing bath and confortable master bedroom. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. Wi-fi throughout. Parking was never an issue despite no allocated parking - the road the cottage is on is pretty steep, but that's not uncommon in the Peak District. Would recommend to others.

“Cute and comfortable - highly recommended”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This was our second trip to Matchbox Cottage and it did not disappoint. We love where it is situated so easy to reach most of the attractions that the Dales has to offer.

The cottage was comfortable and very clean. Probably the best equipped place we have stayed in and with the addition of free logs for the log burner this time, we enjoyed lighting the fire most evenings. The bathroom has no shower, although shower attachments available, but the roll top bath makes up for lack of shower as it forces you to lie back and relax!!

This cottage allows doggie guests and there is no hint of previous four legged guests in terms of mud, scent or wear and tear. We love this place.

We particularly like the Farrow and Ball colour schemes and have come away with inspiration to decorate!!

Thanks Rob for another good visit. Particularly like the welcome tray on arrival. Jane and Louise Hack

Had a lovely stay at the Matchbox.
Clean and comfortable.
Good base to explore Derbyshire.
Had fun climbing and parking up the hill but hey you are in the Dales.
Thanks love to come back another time.
