  • “Bobbin Cottage was clean and well thought out.”

    The lack of a second toilet for 6 guests meant we wouldn’t return, I feel the house should only warrant 4 guests booking as also lack of space in lounge for 6 guests to sit comfortably. ...

    The lack of a second toilet for 6 guests meant we wouldn’t return, I feel the house should only warrant 4 guests booking as also lack of space in lounge for 6 guests to sit comfortably. As you would expect in a terraced Matlock position there isn’t any privacy from neighbours. Only 1 toilet roll provided for 6 guests, no Jay Cloths. Having booked with Classic Cottages lots of time we missed the extra touches like a cake or wine on arrival. Beds were comfy, we didn’t like the fact you had to walk through one bedroom to get to another and the same to access the bathroom, made it difficult in the morning. ( again I feel the house doesn’t suit 6 guests) Sounds like lots of critique but the house was clean and had lovely views.

    Thank you for your comments. The owner passes on apologies from the cleaning team that ample loo rolls and j-cloths were not supplied. These are usually standard along with the dishwasher tablets, dispensers of washing liquids, shower gels & moisturiser. Whilst we don’t leave cake and wine, we do make sure there is an accommodating welcome pack of fresh milk, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and even dog biscuits for our furry visitors. With regards to the bedroom layout, bathroom & privacy, it is clearly advertised in the description of the property what can be expected. Previous guests have been complimentary on how the property exceeds expectations from the listing. All of the information is accurately stated on the website and is there to review the property layout to ensure it meets your requirements. - Sykes owner relations

The property

A mid-terrace cottage in the fascinating, friendly Derbyshire town of Matlock.

With the glorious Peak District National Park close by, this is a charming base from which to explore this fine part of England.

As you climb a few stone steps to the front door of the property, you walk alongside the established front garden which has a dog-friendly ‘pooch patch’ and patio area.

Upon entering the property you are welcomed by a cosy sitting room featuring a wood burner.

After a busy day exploring you can sit back and relax in front of the TV.

Wander through into the delightful and spacious kitchen/diner with its stunning original floor tiles, the gas wood burner brings a sense of comfort while the rustic wooden kitchen is designed to set you up perfectly for your Derbyshire cottage break.

A large map, wall mounted, enables you to plan your next adventure.

Set over three floors, the first floor offers a delightful double bedroom, a stylish twin room and a pristine, all-white family bathroom with shower.

The twin room, with beautiful views of Matlock town, the hills beyond and Riber Castle, has a staircase leading to the converted loft.

The loft room is a spacious double with a contemporary feel, its own TV and a light-filled Velux window.

To the back of the property there is a stone outhouse perfect for storing bicycles, boots and coats.

Up a set of stone steps, you will find a serene raised patio where you can kick back and relax together.

This cottage reflects the history of John Smedley who is a key figure in Matlock history, with features such as the cotton mill bobbins.

Take the stroll into the centre of wonderful Matlock, a town offering a wide variety of places to eat, drink and shop as well as Lumsdale Falls, the Heights of Abraham and Gulliver's Kingdom on offer close by.

The neighbouring Matlock Bath is a fabulous spot to visit.

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!
