    “Loved the seclusion of the ...”
    Loved the seclusion of the property. It was tastefully decorated and comfortable, and everything was thought of to make the cottage a home from home. I really enjoyed cooking on the Rayburn. Also, the ambient temperature of the property was always cosy and there was plenty of hot water. Highly recommend this cottage and will most definitely be returning.

The property

A stone-built detached cottage set in its own spacious grounds, on a high promontory above the ever-popular Derbyshire town of Matlock, right on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

A former barn, this charming Matlock cottage is a real delight and makes a perfect holiday cottage for a romantic break.

In a secluded setting amongst beautiful rolling Derbyshire countryside with fabulous walking from the doorstep, this cottage near Matlock boasts wonderful views across the Derwent Valley and is supremely cosy to return to after a day out.

Enjoying an open plan layout, the ground floor of this Matlock cottage comprises a first-class farmhouse kitchen with stone floors and a dining area, while a stone arch leads through into the cosy sitting room with delightful woodburning stove and open stairway to the first floor.

A lovely spacious bedroom with super king-size bed with Velux windows and an adjacent shower room provides an airy and romantic space.

Full of character and charm throughout, this is a great Matlock cottage to get away from it all and enjoy true country living and yet have the amenities of a large town just a ten minute walk away, accessed from a path originating in the grounds of the cottage.

This is an ideal base from which to explore the region's many attractions, including Chatsworth House and Carsington Water and sailing club.

About the location


Matlock Bath 1 mile; Bakewell 8 miles.

The popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, has been attracting visitors to the area since the spa was developed in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, the Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham – a great place for all the family with its showcaves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. To the north are the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House and Park - not to be missed!
