    • “Was worried our large family group would have enough room, but no problem. Kitchen well stocked pots, pans, etc easy to cater. Large oven, additional fitted oven, 2 microwaves, 2 fridges and dishwasher. Useful utility area. Comfy seats for all in lounge, lovely warm house with endless hot water. Nice walk to pub about 15 minutes to choice of 2. 15 minutes in car to the stunning nine maidens stone circle. Good location for peaks and Chatsworth.”

    • “Suitable for a large family”

    • “We hired Rotherwood Cottage to stay with our five children-7 of us in total. The cottage sleeps 10 so there was plenty of room for us all. The kitchen and dining room were a suitable size for us as was the patio table although we might have struggled to seat 10 around both the dining room and patio tables. The climbing frame, in the garden, was a big hit with our younger children and we enjoyed sitting on the patio. Rotherwood Cottage is well situated for Matlock and the Peak District. A lock on the bathroom door would have been a bonus!”

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!
