  • “We stayed here for a week as our base to explore the Peak District and found it to be a very good place to stay in terms of location.”

    It was easy to get to everywhere we wanted to including up to Speedwell Caverns and down to Alton Towers. On arrival, it’s apparent there is no dedicated parking for the apartment but in the time we were there, we never had an issue finding a parking spot. In fact, every single day we managed to get the same spot outside the Openreach telephone exchange approximately 2 minutes to the apartment so it was ideal.

    It was easy to get to everywhere we wanted to including up to Speedwell Caverns and down to Alton Towers. On arrival, it’s apparent there is no dedicated parking for the apartment but in the time we were there, we never had an issue finding a parking spot. In fact, every single day we managed to get the same spot outside the Openreach telephone exchange approximately 2 minutes to the apartment so it was ideal. It doesn’t matter what time of the day / evening we arrived, we always had a space waiting for us. The apartment was in a very clean condition and it was well stocked. In terms of space it is perfect for a couple. We had a 3 year old with us and found it just enough for all three of us, anymore and I think it would’ve been a bit cramped. For our purposes, it was perfectly fine. I actually only have one improvement suggestion to be honest and that’s the televisions. We tried to connect to the tv by Wi-Fi as well as Ethernet for any online service, then when connecting it said the app download was corrupt. I reset the tv and tried again but on all apps (bbc iPlayer, Netflix etc) they would not boot. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue as we don’t watch much tv, but the regular terrestrial channels were struggling too. BBC One was unwatchable through a regular aerial along with a number of basic terrestrial channels. None of this affects the quality of stay however as the tv is a nice to have, but if it is important to you, we resorted to using the MacBook to stream instead so I’d suggest making the same provisions. On leaving, the owner contacted us to say my partner left her necklace and has sent that to us, so you can be assured you’re renting from someone kind and honest. Overall, a really nice, clean, comfortable stay with no problems at all. Recommended.

About the location

MATLOCK

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!
