    A great location (although our legs did feel the hill after a couple of days!) We would definitely stay again!

  • "We’ve just got back from a lovely weeks’ stay at Matlock Views."

    We were 5 adults and a 3 year old staying for most of the trip.The whole house was clean and well-equipped and we enjoyed the views and the hot tub immensely. Mum, Dad and little boy took the middle floor and Granny and Grandad and Auntie had the attic rooms. We enjoyed going to Matlock Farm Park, Bakewell, Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall, Belper, Cromford Mill and Peak Adventure at Rowsley. Our only real gripe was the quality of the bedding in our room on the top floor. The pillows were wafer thin and the duvet “cover” was about a foot too short for the duvet and had big holes in it! I slept in the en suite double on the last night and it was much more comfortable. We were a bit confused as to which was our “front door” when we arrived and indeed a hen party barged into our accommodation on the Saturday thinking they were staying in ours! The hot tub was checked on the Tuesday and given how heavy the lid was we’d put the two patio tables behind it to help take the weight. The guy checking the chemicals unhelpfully put them both back which was weird given we had another three days to go…Going forward you may also want to look at the radiator in the single bedroom where our grandson slept as it didn’t come on once the whole week, nor did the extractor fan in the main bathroom.

    Hello Julie, Thank you for bringing these points to our attention we apologies that you had to do so and we will make sure they are taken care of and we sincerely hope they did not effect your stay with us. The bedding I am really unsure why the cleaning company would of put the duvet cover on in the first place for one being as its the wrong size and two with holes in it! I will look into this Usually when checking the hot tub Phil always sweeps around and puts the chairs and tables in the same spot, I dont think he would of thought it was a problem doing so. Thanks again Julie for choosing Matlock Views and Hope that you will think of us again in the future. Kind regards Karen Property Owner

    The house is spotless, and has absolutely everything you’ll need for a lovely, relaxing stay. The hot tub was really clean and well maintained. The house is located at the top of a quite steep hill, but it’s a short walk into the town, which has some lovely independent shops as well as a co-op etc. we visited Butterfingers cafe for an amazing lunch and cake. Definitely recommend.

  • "Excellent property."

    Surprisingly quiet location. Easy access walking to Matlock town centre albeit rather uphill on the way back. Very good pubs just up the road too. Very quick to get out into the countryside of the peaks. Very well presented house. Excellent kitchen and lounge and the party commented on the comfortable beds. Hot tub was brilliant, especially under the cover due to the English weather. Chlorine a bit strong though, Could do with another toilet as only one freely available as the other is in an ensuite and the car parking might need a couple of holes filled. But definitely would recommend

    Thank you David for your feedback and so pleased you liked your stay in our house. Noted regarding the Chlorine, which is checked on a regular basis. We totally agree regarding the car park we have it on our list of priority jobs that need to be done. We hope you will visit us again in the future. Property Owner

    The owner seemed unable to change it. The hot tub was so chlorinated that we couldn't use it until the owner came to dilute the water. There was a lack of utensils in the kitchen and the house was on a very steep hill. Otherwise, good location close to the town centre and pleasantly furnished. Most beds were too hard.

    When we arrived on a cold windy afternoon the house was very welcoming and lovely and warm. The kitchen/dining/living area was ideal for us all to be together and upstairs the bedrooms were very comfortable. The garden is set out lovely with a hot tub and two tables and chairs for dining alfresco, weather permitting. Yes, the house is on a steep hill which we knew before we went but it didn’t cause any problems as the two ninety year olds where driven when we went into the centre of Matlock and the rest of us walked. It takes under ten minutes! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Matlock Views and wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

  • "Really nice clean house, felt like a home from home."

    The property was visited half way through the stay to check the hot tub was still functioning properly, this was non invasive and was performed discreetly and professionally by the host. The property is equipped with plenty of kitchenware, which was really useful and beneficial. A selection of plastic wine glasses, champagne flutes and plastic cups were ideal for cocktail evenings in the Hot Tub / Garden. The property contains a number of notes (such as bin days and appliance instructions). I would of personally preferred if these were all in one place, as it became easy to ignore and not read them. The bed arrangement was not quite as listed, the property contained an ensuite double, single, twin and a double room (this was actually preferred to the arrangement listed). That being said, I would definitely recommend this properly to any friends looking to visit the area, and would stay again.

  • "Property was clean, well presented and in a good location."

    However our main reason for selecting this property was for the hot tub. The evening before arrival I received updated check in details advising that the hot tub wouldn’t be available until 6pm on the first day. Although the children were disappointed we decided to explore Matlock and hit the tub when we got back. Unfortunately at 7.30pm the water was still very cool and so I contacted the owner who advised that Sykes are aware of the issue and we would just need to wait until it heated up but wouldn’t take too long. By 9.30pm there was no improvement but the children braved it for 10mins. Unfortunately we were unable to use it until the following morning when the temperature was warm enough. We used it several times over the weekend but I found it disappointing that on a 3 night break it was only available for 2 of those nights. Had we known of this beforehand we would have booked an alternate property.

    There were 6 adults, 1 child and 3 babies in our party. The property was beautiful and felt very homely. The little extras such as washing up liquid, cooking oils, games, shower gels etc were a lovely touch and we all enjoyed the lovely biscuits that you left for us. The hot tub was the main reason we booked this property, it was very relaxing and we pretty much stayed in there most of the first night. The only thing I would say is it could have done with being a little hotter now the weather has got a bit colder. That said it certainly wouldn't stop us from staying here again and I will certainly be recommending to friends and family. All in all a fab time was had by all, many thanks.

  • "Lovely house, well appointed, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated."

    We had an excellent holiday meeting up with another family with 4 young children between us. We took our own travel cot and high chair as these were not supplied. The children enjoyed lots of space to play and a big bath. The location is excellent for Matlock centre and only 10 mins walk to the train station (a bit longer walking back up the steep hill!) and closer for a very good park, several cafes and bars and the lovely micropub 'the news room' up the hill. We also enjoyed the hot tub! Only a few minor points which could be improved: we would have liked a cafetiere (although ample supply of instant coffee provided along with tea, a big box of biscuits, some oil, sauces and other bits and bobs of food which were very thoughtfully provided.) Not an issue in October, but pale vertical blinds in the bedrooms would be insufficient in the summer- on a previous holiday elsewhere with similar our children were awake from 4.30am! Some blackout blinds or curtains would be a valuable addition to this house. The parking area is badly pot-holed which may not be in the owner's control, but a simple warning to be aware to park very slowly and carefully would be helpful. These were all minor issues for us however and we would happily stay here again (in the winter months).

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!

Please note the hot tub is drained and thoroughly cleaned between each booking and may not be up to the optimum temperature upon arrival, we ask for your patience while it is maintaining the correct temperature.
