  • “Dukes View is a beautiful property ...”
    Dukes View is a beautiful property and the small gesture of some biscuits and a much needed bottle of wine on arrival went a long way to making us feel very welcome! David phoned us the night before check in to go through things we needed to know which was really useful and was available to contact throughout our stay should we have needed him.

    Dukes View is a beautiful property and the small gesture of some biscuits and a much needed bottle of wine on arrival went a long way to making us feel very welcome! David phoned us the night before check in to go through things we needed to know which was really useful and was available to contact throughout our stay should we have needed him. The property is beautifully laid out and has all the amenities you could possibly want for a family holiday in the Peaks, they even allowed us to bring our dog who is also a very important part of our family! I would highly recommend this property for a weekend getaway, its conveniently located to local shops, pubs and a park, as well being close to the villages of Bakewell and Chatsworth, all good for walking. But if you fancy more access to a city, its a 40 minute drive to Sheffield and about 30 minutes from Chesterfield. I didn't want to leave! An amazing property.

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!
