The property

Cavendish Cottage is an attractive, semi-detached cottage located in the popular town of Matlock, Derbyshire and overlooking the Derwent valley.

Within easy reach of the Peak District and Gulliver's Kingdom, this holiday home offers a family-friendly retreat for four guests.

Find convenient on-street parking in front of the property, before unloading your belongings and getting your holiday started!

Enter via the enclosed front garden with a lawn and patio, a lovely spot to savour a hot cup of tea in the morning sunshine; this attractive cottage has contemporary, sleek features throughout with rustic furnishings to retain a cottage feel.

Set the dining table for four in the gorgeous kitchen/diner, with soft tones, wooden countertops, and excellent amenities to rustle up your favourite meals, including a range cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer.

After trekking through the Peak District, the warmth of a woodburning stove awaits in the sitting room; sink into the plush seating, put your feet up and watch a family-favourite on the TV.

The rear, enclosed garden is another social spot to dine alfresco at the outdoor seating or let the little ones play safely with your canine companions!

Find a beautiful, contemporary bathroom to hang your towel on the heated towel rail and choose between a relaxing bubble bath or a hot rinse in the spacious walk-in shower, before retiring to one of two bedrooms.

A double and a twin room complete the property to curl up under the sheets ready for the next day's adventures.

The centre of Matlock offers fantastic self-catering amenities, including shops, pubs, restaurants, and cafés to fuel your day, alongside family-friendly attractions such as nostalgic trips on vintage trains along the Peak Rail and plenty of parks to picnic and play.

Take a short journey into Matlock's neighbour, Matlock Bath, to admire the displays at Matlock Bath Aquarium and arcade, take a cable car ride on the Heights of Abraham with cavern tours and exhibits, or treat the kids to thrilling rides at Gulliver's Kingdom.

Families seeking the great outdoors have the Peak District on their doorstep; pack your walking gear and venture along hiking trails through stunning landscapes, spot an abundance of wildlife and pause at quaint villages for lunch.

Bakewell is a historic market town with plenty of tearooms to choose from, as well as the popular Bakewell Bridge and The Old House, a Tudor house from Henry VIII's reign featuring local artifacts.

If you're hungry for more history, Haddon Hall is a medieval manor house just south of Bakewell, with a grand Tudor hall and Elizabethan gardens to explore.

For more amenities, the larger town of Chesterfield provides plenty to keep the whole family entertained, from cinemas and theatres to Tapton Golf Course!

Enjoy a memorable family holiday at Cavendish Cottage all year round.

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!
