  • "We wrote a comprehensive report in the Visitors' book but weren't 100% sure all comments have been read by owners as some of our points had already been raised but clearly not addressed."

    Overall everything was very positive, very clean and great facilities but there were some not so good points eg edges on the Pool table (ie there were none although we weren't overly bothered by this) and the absence of the publicised Hot Tub which did matter to us. Smaller issues would be addition of full length mirrors in rooms and shower caddies. It would have been helpful to have recommendations for eating out etc. But, as I said, we were generally very pleased with the whole place.

  • "We had a fabulous stay with you."

    The house was great, location amazing for walking into town.. It was clean and comfortable. Loved the items left for us to use. Will definitely visit again. Just a couple of issues which will help the visitors experience, The main front door, the handle/ knob is loose and comes away in your hand. Bedroom 4's door does not close. One bathroom with bath and shower could do with a slip mat, You mention in your folder residents parking permits were by the front door, but we never saw anything. None of these spoilt our stay. Just little feedbacks. Thank you

    They layout worked really well as reach family could have their own floor and it could be shut off. Have a place with so much room made having everyone together so much easier. The property is well stocked and had everything we needed – except maybe a hairdryer!

  • "This was a property where the photos did not do justice to the amount of space we had across the four floors."

    With a mix of adults and children (four families) we loved the two separate socialising spaces and how little sound travelled around the house too. I was so impressed with the contact we had beforehand to ensure the beds were made up correctly for our group. We loved the fact that we could walk to coffee shops, shops, Matlock Bath etc. etc. It gave the flexibility for the older teens to head off and be independent when they wanted to. We got one car on the front paved area, then one on the white line blocking the house drive. We found close on street parking quite easily for the other two cars. I like a firm mattress and found our double mattress was a little tired and soft. That may just be personal preference though! (No one else in the party commented on their beds so I guess they were fine.) Thank you for providing a great 'home' for our family Christmas.

  • "The house was brilliant and perfect for our needs."

    There were 8 of us mums and to have a toilet in every room was great. The dining room was a lovely place to congregate over food and the cellar was brilliant with the pool table and tv. The kitchen had everything in it that we needed to cook a massive Christmas dinner! We had a fantastic time and Danielle was really friendly and super responsive when we needed her. The heating didn't work in the top floors the first night but Danielle immediately came and sorted this out as soon as we contacted her, bought a part and fixed it the same day, we couldn't have asked for more. The location was great, a 2 min walk into Matlock but so quiet at night. The spa was a lovely treat too! We will definitely be back again!

  • "Fabulous house for large groups."

    Well equipped with everything you could need. Lots of comfy beds with abundance of bathrooms. Some of the furniture a bit tired (sofas a bit lumpy) Games room an absolute bonus. We didn’t use the sauna but outside space was lovely. We did find the house very warm, despite there being no heating on, but lots of windows and patio doors to open. Great position for exploring Matlock. Parking a bit tight, we managed to accommodate 3 cars and found additional on neighbouring streets. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Excellent location and facilities."

    We were a group of walkers, mainly single, and all appreciated having their own room and (almost entirely) en suites. We had problems getting hot water on the top floor, so the two of us up there used the (very good) shower in the basement. Had a communal meal in, and enjoyed meals at the Italian (Viva), the Indian (Maazi), The Remarkable Hare and super pub The Duke William. Lots of historical interest in the area as well as the great walking/scenery. Very useful having the trains and buses also. The parking was not as easy as made out: you can get one car on the slabs in front of the house, but it's difficult to get two cars within the white line in front of that - and of course the car on the slabs is then blocked in. We almost were fined by a parking guy as one car overlapped the white line, and he said that anyway the while line was 'discretionary'. Parking spaces in the street were for one hour only, and the streets nearby where you could park longer were generally full. Despite this, a really excellent stay.

    We cannot wait to visit again next year. The only slight bit of feedback was that quite a few of the guests commented on the pillows being lumpy, which I would agree with. But other than that there was not a single complaint

    We were a party of 15 aged from 3 months to 90 years old. The house was lovely and had everything we needed for our long weekend stay. It was superbly clean and well stocked in the kitchen. Lots of fun was had in family/games room. The location was excellent, right in the heart of everything and even though we had 6 cars as we came from far and wide, we had no issues finding somewhere close by to park. We would highly recommend. Karen & Family

  • "We had a fabulous stay."

    8 ladies in our 60s meeting for a school reunion. Loved the house. All got our own room including a loo! Excellently equipped. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Great location for sightseeing. The only downside was that there were roadworks outside the house so we couldn’t use the parking passes. We had four cars between us and you can only get one on the front of the property. However plenty of street parking around and obviously not your fault. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend to larger groups. Thank you very much.

  • "Lovely property."

    Really great facilities, especially the number of bathrooms/WCs. Bedrooms modern and well designed. Living areas a little more dated, but comfortable and cosy. WiFi doesn't reach the TV on the lower ground floor, so didn't use this room as much as we thought we would. A bigger kitchen bin would also be useful. Appreciated the lovely new laundry machine. Great property overall, would recommend it and we hope to return.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I’m sorry to hear you had problems with the TV & Wi-Fi. We realise due to the size and layout of the property that there are black spots in signal and will look into ways in which we can improve this. We look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

    We had plenty of space and facilities. We had 3 under two year old and the cot and high chairs requested were there. My only suggestion for improvement would be to give more details re parking prior to arriving at the house. I hadn’t realised that we could park a car outside on the road. However we had purchased 3 day rover passes which were good value for parking throughout the area.

  • "The property is in a fabulous location."

    The house was amazing for our family Christmas break. The only thing that lets the property down is that the TV upstairs is too small. There is a much larger one downstairs which is a great size but unable to plug fire stick into it as the TV is built in. The blind in room 4 is broken and has been mentioned before but still not fixed. Great that all rooms had an en-suite toilet and the games room was fabulous for the kids/big kids. Would definitely stay here again

    Thank you so much for your feedback! The blind has now been fixed, the initial repair clearly didn’t work so we have had to replace the mechanism; with having back to back bookings we didn’t have the opportunity to replace it sooner. We have also taken note of your comments regarding the TVs and will make sure this is on listing; the TV downstairs is “built in” for safety reasons. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again! Property Owner
