    People very friendly. Our main problem was The double bed is really, really uncomfortable, the bed is creaky it has a roll to the middle and covers are man made sweaty material, it wasn’t hot when we were there but we were so uncomfortable. Ashtray outside front door full, not nice. People should be aware there is no outside space at all not even to sit and have a cup of tea, just a tiny yard for the dog to have a wee. Every thing else was fine, lovely old cottage. Staying anywhere at this time is extremely expensive and no heating costs so the bed should at least be comfortable.

About the location


Matlock 5 miles

The village of Whatstandwell sits beside the River Derwent, located close to its better known neighbours of Cromford, Matlock, Matlock Bath and the popular village of Crich. The area, located in the Peak District National Park, is full of history, with the National Tramway Museum a particular favourite amongst visitors to the area. Matlock, just a few miles away, offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as Gulliver's Kingdom. Magnificent views of the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show caves, nature trail, water gardens and owl maze. The nearby High Peak Cycle Trail provides a wonderful experience while further to the north the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park, Haddon Hall and Carsington Water are not to be missed!
