  • "What an fantastic place, a real home from home."

    The cottage was really clean and had everything that you needed and more to enjoy your stay. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and my wife enjoyed the wine.

  • "We loved the cottage as soon as we walked inside."

    Super clean everywhere and little touches that made if feel like home. The photos don't do it justice its much bigger and the patio areas are lovely and big space. Lovely welcome pack left in the kitchen which had everything you could need. The owners have thought of everything. Apart from the steep walk to Matlock town we would stay again but i'm not sure were up to the hills!!!!

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay at Amber cottage."

    Cannot find fault with a single thing, everything you need was provided. The welcome basket was greatly appreciated. This was a trip away for our 53rd wedding anniversary. The weather was not too good but we still had a wonderful time. We felt at home in your cottage.

  • "Really lovely comfy cottage."

    Well thought out - organised cottage. Nice to have things available like a slow cooker and coffee maker. Loved the extra touches too, the welcome basket and magazines

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Lovely owners. Directions led us astray to the rear of the property. That hill is horrendous so we used the bus to get back up it. A summer break woild have been better so we could use the two patios. Nice welcome basket and milk in the fridge.

  • "The house quickly became Home ."

    . everything is there, a full set of helpful 'instructions' about using quality kitchen kit .. then with excellent help from owner Carol the moment a query about tv channelling arose. Non-technical person me! As a place to feel happy and relaxed Amber Cottage has everything without any traffic noise that would stop you hearing the Sparrows at their breakfast, dinner tea! The southern views across the valley had Matlock town roofs shrouded under a December temperature inversion, the Abraham folly in good view though and this house an holiday base central to much you'd seek in the Peak. Since Victorian times they've said the Matlock area is the 'Switzerland of England' ... you can certainly feel the ambience and share that same era of golden opportunity from this place called Amber ... a jewel to enjoy, and not just what's outside the front door.

    The downstairs double bedroom did get a bit cold in the evening but a small heater was provided by the owner.

The property

Amber Cottage is a delightful reverse-level holiday home resting in the picturesque town of Matlock.

Sitting peacefully on the outskirts of the stunning Peak District National Park, this charming cottage is perfectly suited to a family or a group of four friends, seeking an exciting expedition in the Derbyshire countryside.

Step inside the welcoming embrace of Amber Cottage and be greeted by two well decorated bedrooms, one boasting custom-made oak adult bunk beds, and a spacious master bedroom with a pine king-size bed and lovely dressing table, where you can take your time to get ready for the evening's festivities after a long soak in the bath or refreshing shower.

The master bedroom features a large double patio door leading out onto a private patio with steep steps leading up to a further garden space, where you can enjoy a breath of fresh morning air as you sip a warm coffee and appreciate a relaxing break with the family.

Climb the staircase to the first floor and prepare a hearty breakfast in the well-thought-out kitchen with the help of all the useful appliances, before heading into the warmth of the living/dining room to feast upon the food.

Venture out onto the upper patio and enjoy a glass or two at the end of the day and chat with your group about your favourite moments of the holiday so far.

Whilst in the area wine and dine at some of the finest restaurants in the local area or grab some fresh ingredients from the local supermarket or take advantage of the local chip shop or takeaways.

The property is within easy reach of the gorgeous country houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, whilst the nearby pretty market town of Bakewell lies within the heart of the Peak District National Park and offers a great place for meandering; don't forget to stop for a Bakewell pudding.

For walkers and cyclists there are several trails close by including the Monsal trail and High Peak trail offering outstanding views through the countryside.

For an unforgettable holiday with those closest to you, stay at Amber Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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!
