    Mrs Down

    “Lovely resort.”

    Cottages were very pretty set around a lake. Houses were lovely and quiet and toasty warm. Kitchens well equipped. Only negatives were that the interiors of the cottages seemed a little tired. Old lumpy sofas. Beds were very hit and miss. Some springy and old. Others okay. Walls and skirting boards scuffed.

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.
