    “We had a nice stay at this cottage.”

    It’s in a great location for access to Matlock Bath and other areas of the Peaks. The house was very clean and had pretty much everything you need. The kitchen is brilliant and there are really good quality glasses/mugs/plates etc which is very rare in rentals! ...

    It’s in a great location for access to Matlock Bath and other areas of the Peaks. The house was very clean and had pretty much everything you need. The kitchen is brilliant and there are really good quality glasses/mugs/plates etc which is very rare in rentals! However there were a few niggles. The biggest bed in the master bedroom is twins zipped together which makes it really uncomfortable for a couple. It wasn’t easy to get a full night’s sleep in it. The other main issue was the sofa. As we travelled with our 3 year old, we were at the cottage in the evenings and it was impossible to relax on such an uncomfortable sofa. I know the cushions had been taken away because of covid protocols but it made it very hard to sit on. If those things changed, I would happily stay here again.

This is a delightful, stone-built period cottage with views of Riber Castle situated within walking distance of Matlock Bath and Matlock town centre.

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.

To the front and side of the cottage is an attractive gravelled garden area providing off road parking and a seating area where you can relax, have a drink, and watch the world go by.

Opposite the cottage is a footpath which leads straight into Matlock Bath, the Heights of Abraham cable car and the local railway station.

Matlock Bath provides something to suit everyone, with its great selection of shops, pubs and cafes as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum.

Also at Matlock Bath is the starting point for the cable car which takes you to the Heights of Abraham, giving magnificent views down the gorge of the River Derwent.

About the location


Matlock 1 mile; Bakewell 9 miles.

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.
