  • "Great house, well maintained and in a great location."

    We were able to park the car and not use again all weekend. Definitely recommend.

  • "Very comfortable beds, well equipped house."

    a bit too warm if anything, had to keep turning the thermostat down to 16, every few hours. Very useful to have a ground floor toilet available. kitchen table was a little tricky to keep clean with the grooves in the top. Only thing we really missed was having a cafetiere. we'd be happy to stay there again.

  • "Lovely house in a fantastic location, great for wandering out to Matlock or exploring wider Derbyshire."

    As others have mentioned though, it probably is not ideal for light sleepers between the church bells and road noise.

  • "A spotlessly clean property."

    Very cosy and comfortable. Easy walk into the village via the little park close by. Everything provided - couldn’t ask for more. Five adults enjoyed a lovely weekend celebration and gentle introduction into the festive season with the little Christmas touches in the house. The welcome bottle of bubbly and chocolates were appreciated and enjoyed. Great place.

  • "In most regards, this was a very pleasant house in which to stay, being comfortable and very well equipped."

    Our only reservations are minor: there was quite a lot of traffic noise (the house is located close to a busy road); and some of the kitchen cupboards and the window beside the sink are a bit of a challenge for someone under five feet six inches in height to reach, so the house might not suit a family with no taller members.

    Hi Patrick thank you for your feedback I hope the Road noise didn’t disturb you too much Property Owner

  • "One of the best properties we have stayed in."

    A great location - an easy walk into Matlock. The house provided everything we needed, and was very clean and comfortable. The welcome 'treats' were also much appreciated. We would definitely stay a Knowleston House again.

About the location

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.

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!
