Beautifully decorated throughout, this end-terrace cottage is warm and welcoming and is perfect for couples or a small family visiting this stunning area.

Two bedrooms and a beautifully decorated designer bathroom make up the accommodation on the first floor of this cosy cottage, whilst on the ground floor the fully-equipped modern kitchen, featuring granite worktops, makes an ideal place for some lovely home cooking in the evening.

A comfortable sitting room with a woodburning stove and feature stone surround provides the perfect place to sit and unwind after a long day of activities.

Matlock Bath is located in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, 1 mile from Matlock, surrounded by wooded hills and cliffs. It developed as a Spa town in the 1800s and is also famous for its connections with Sir Richard Arkwright and the cotton trade, often being referred to as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution. Today Matlock Bath offers a selection of pubs and shops, Arkwright's Cromford Mill, a world heritage site, and Venetian Nights during September and October, which feature decorated and illuminated boats floating along the river. The village boasts a plethora of attractions such as Gulliver's Kingdom, the Peak District Mining Museum or you can enjoy a ride on the Heights of Abraham cable car where you can take in the views in style. The splendid Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Crich Tramway museum are close by, or take advantage of good walking around the Derwent Valley and White Peak and cycling at Carsington Water and the High Peak Cycle Trail.
