    Little patio a delightful sun spot. Walks from the doorstep. The pub next door was a bonus, lovely food and everybody was so friendly. We went in each night and spoke to different locals each time . Look forward to staying in The Snug cottage again soon .

  • "We weren’t expecting it to be at the top of a very very steep hill !"

    Also the oven door was Brocken & didn’t close probably. The (Ness) induction hob rings were disappointing, we couldn’t get anything to the correct temperature. Otherwise, we had a wonderful stay. Thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Perhaps advertising should mention it is accessed via steep hill, and parking is not always close to the cottage.

The property

The Snug is a charming end-terrace cottage resting in the thriving town of Matlock, Derbyshire, ideal for a romantic break to the Peak District.

Conveniently located next to the Thorn Tree Inn, this quaint dwelling boasts magnificent countryside views and a private grape-slate garden with furniture, perfect for staying in or going out to explore the local area.

On arrival at the property, the characterful sandstone property offers a pleasant bench at the front where you can soak up the sun before entering into the open-plan living space.

Here you will find a kitchen fit with all the necessities to whip up a delicious meal ahead of a day of adventures.

Enjoy your meals in the dining area, before retiring to the sofa to watch TV with your feet up as the woodburning stove gently warms the space.

Moving through the property and up the stairs, the mezzanine bedroom is home to a plush double and boasts amazing views over the countryside hills out the window.

Completing the interior is a shower room, fit with a walk-in shower, basin and WC where you can get ready for the day's adventures.

Savour a glass of wine with alfresco dining outside; climbing the stone steps to the slate-floored courtyard, complete with dining seating and a private and tranquil space to soak up the last of the summer sun of an evening.

Matlock and the surrounding areas are a walkers and nature enthusiasts haven; home to some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain, you are sure to find an attraction for you, whether it be immersing yourself in the town's history or taking a trek off the beaten track.

Animal lovers will enjoy the nearby Matlock Farm Park, home to cute farm animals and a lovely café where you can stop for a light lunch.

Brush up on your history by visiting the Peak District Lead Mining Museum, home to exhibitions on the lead-mining heritage of the Peak District from present day and dating all the way back to Roman times.

Close by, Matlock Bath plays host to Lover's Walk, a romantic riverside walk along through the woodlands and up to the clifftops.

Further walks can be found at Lea Gardens, or further afield venture into the lovely Peak District towns of Bakewell and Tideswell.

Before heading back to the cottage, treat yourself to a fish and chip takeaway at Wellington Street Fish Bar or for dining in, Millers Bar and grill is just a short walk from the dwelling.

Whatever you type of adventure, choose The Snug as your base for a fantastic trip to the Peak District.

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!
