  • “Fabulous property of a very high standard, beautifully furnished.”

    Extremely comfortable and spacious. ...

    Extremely comfortable and spacious. Very helpful and thoughtful owner, plenty of contact up to day of visit and checked in over the weekend to make sure we had everything we needed and were happy with everything. Parking could be difficult but we took 2 cars and found close by parking for both, permits are provided and there is a garage, but was a but difficult to get into, so we decided not to use it. Would definitely consider visiting again as it was brilliantly located for matlock bath and a taxi ride into matlock was easy enough for an evening. Overall it is a super property.....and fulfilled our needs for a short break.

The property

Nestled behind the historic north parade in Matlock Bath and set in front of a dramatic green hillside is this fabulous Victorian townhouse.

Full of character, Kirkham house is set over three floors with the ground floor dating back to the 18th century and the top two floors added in the early Victorian period during the golden era of tourism to the health spas of Matlock, the ground floor is now a spacious garage with a remote controlled door and a fabulous en suite studio that is sure to be a hit with teenagers or couples who would like their own space and their own front door!

This high spec house boasts a Smart TV in every bedroom and even a house ipad to control the hive heating and the high end Sonos sound systems, which you will find throughout the house.

Spend your time relaxing in the spacious open-plan living space, finished in an eccentric style with a large corner sofa and Smart TV, towards the opposite end, you will find an area with a wood burning stove and seating that is just perfect for tucking yourself away with a good book.

Off the living area you will find an extremely well-equipped kitchen with contemporary décor, there is a large double oven and gas hob, espresso machine with milk steamer, dishwasher and all the utensils and equipment you might need.

Step out onto the elevated south-facing terrace and you will find a sunny spot where you can dine al fresco or get the BBQ fired up, there is also an enclosed courtyard to the back, which is suitable for those bringing their four-legged friends but rest assured you are not short of dog walking routes in Matlock Bath.

The first floor plays host to three well-appointed double bedrooms with white bed linen, served by a contemporary bathroom with bath and walk-in shower cubicle and crucially, a separate WC.

Gather family, friends and couples to this inviting dwelling, with a range of attractions to suit all, from visiting and meandering around the quaint towns and villages of the Peaks, to challenging treks and climbs for those who like an outdoor challenge.
