Swap seaside for countryside and bring the family to one of our Matlock cottages. We promise fun and entertainment every day!
Surrounded by dramatic scenery at the edge of the Peak District National Park, Matlock is Derbyshire's historic county town, while its smaller neighbour Matlock Bath (Byron's 'Little Switzerland') is a thriving tourist village, renowned for its architectural heritage, industrial sites, natural splendour and family attractions.
A conservation area, wander along the elegant Parades, lined
with Victorian and Georgian buildings housing souvenir shops and
eateries. Follow riverside paths through landscaped parkland to
children's play areas. Hire a rowing boat or opt for steam
aboard Peak Rail.
Fantastic days out from your Matlock cottage!
If you're travelling with kids, Gulliver's Kingdom hits the spot for 2-13 year olds. Boasting over fifty attractions and cuddly, costumed characters, the terraced park offers all kinds of themes from the Wild West to Fantasyland.
Find culture and retail bliss at the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site at Masson Mills, featuring an exclusive shopping village and working textile museum.
For 'gorge'-dropping views, ride by cable car up to the Heights of Abraham. Explore the nature trails and enjoy a picnic lunch.
On a rainy day, head for The Aquarium, a rather quirky conversion of the old Hydro, the thermal pool now home to carp and the treatment rooms large fish tanks.
For September/October stays, do book your Matlock cottage early for the spectacular Matlock Bath Illuminations - a magical, illuminated boat parade along the floodlit river every Saturday and Sunday evening.
We have a wide choice of cottages in the Peak
District, with properties for all tastes and budgets.
