    “2020 has been difficult and this is the only weekend away we've all had.”

    We had the BEST time. The house is spotless from top to bottom, the beds were beyond comfy and the facilities were amazing. We felt like we were on holiday. Genuinely could have just moved in, that's how good the house is. 100% recommend and we will be back!

A chic and contemporary dwelling with it's traditional Victorian features still intact, this property is a great space to relax with the family or as a group of six during an exciting escape to the Peak District.

Enter into the well-decorated sitting room and admire the stylish combination of the navy blue walls and green velvet sofa, as you place a log on the pretty woodburning stove, turn on the TV and sink into the leather couch.

With its trendy grey gloss cabinets, brightly painted teal walls and a breakfast bar with hanging lights, this 'of the times' kitchen is at the heart of the home providing the perfect place to socialise with your friends and family as you crack open a bottle of fine red wine and gather all the essentials needed from this well-equipped space to cook up a fabulous feast.

Once the plates have been cleared and are ready to be washed in the convenient dishwasher, huddle at the dining table to map out your plans for the next few days to come.

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!
