  • "This is a really beautifully kept and decorated property."

    It had all modern facilities as well as the old world charm. The welcome hamper on arrival was a real treat. Leaving to go home was difficult :) The bed linen was super soft and cosy, the chocolates by the bed were a lovely treat as were all the toiletries etc that were provided. Fantastic stay!!

  • "Rose cottage is one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in."

    It’s absolutely beautiful! It has been restored and finished to a very high standard. It is fully equipped with everything you will need for a perfect holiday and it’s also in a perfect location for visiting the surrounding areas. The property far exceeded out expectations and there wasn’t anything we could fault with it. There was great communication with the owners. I mentioned it was my mums birthday and they put up a birthday banner and left her a card and chocolates, they even added a cake to the lovely welcome basket. All these extra touches made our stay that extra bit special. We will definitely be returning to Rose Cottage. Thank you so much Emma & Dan

  • "Beautiful holiday cottage, exceptionally clean, comfortable and well equipped, renovated and finished to a very high standard and full of thoughtful touches to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable."

    Felt a bit like staying in a small and exclusive boutique hotel. Cottage is cosy but enough space for 6 of us and the discovery of baskets of toys and books for the children to enjoy during our stay met with huge excitement. Outside space is limited but pleasant and nicely furnished. Excellent communication from the owners. We would love to return in future.

    Original, beautifully restored, fully equipped....we struggled to find anything that was missing from the kitchen equipment. Direct contact from the owners before you arrive, milk, bread, butter, wine in a mini hamper with other goodies. Enough wood for 7 days of log fires. Situated on a fairly busy road which was not an issue for us as it was fairly cold so slept with the windows shut. Local pub 3 doors away, shop within 30m, could have spent the week in my slippers. Chatsworth House is a must visit place even at the current prices they charge for entry. Matlock is a lovely town to walk into for shopping, park, cafes, restaurants.

  • "We had a really comfortable stay."

    Unfortunately it was in the middle of some very bad weather but Rose Cottage more than made up for it. The whole property has clearly been lovingly restored and it was easy to feel very relaxed there. All the little details had been thought about. The kitchen had everything we needed and there were plentiful games, books and toys on offer for our two year old that we needn’t have brought along so many of our own. The master bedroom with its super king double was great. The cottage has a great location - it’s got a pub and takeaway on the doorstep, all the other shops of Matlock only a short walk away and it is very easy to travel to any part of the Derbyshire Dales or further afield into the Peak District with relative ease. In short, we had a fantastic time and would heartily recommend Rose Cottage.

  • "The cottage was exquisite and you could feel the love, care and attention that the owners have put into the property on entry."

    The decor in the cottage was just beautiful and very tasteful, it was a lovely mix of old and new. There is something there for everyone from books, games and dvd’s and magazines. The small little touches made all the difference i.e milk and butter in the fridge. A lovely hessian bag containing crisps, chocolate, bread, popcorn and wine. We bought so many things with us that we didn’t need because the owner had provided it all…fantastic. The cupboards were full with every utensil, crockery, pots, bakery items and condiments etc it was like home from home. It was lovely to read the history behind the cottage and the renovation work in the information folder supplied and the lovely pictures which were dotted around the cottage showing the history and work done on the cottage. The weather was horrible all week but being able to relax in this gorgeous cottage made it so enjoyable and meant that we didn’t miss not being able to explore Matlock instead we ended up with a relaxing week away. I would recommend Rose Cottage and look forward to returning again soon.

    A pretty courtyard garden with comfortable rattan furniture and feature original well with bespoke iron covering. Through the front door and you know that you are in a lovingly restored building. Going from to room was such a pleasure - every one so tastefully furnished. A lovely very well equipped kitchen and utility room and a pleasant sitting/barbecue area out the back. The master bedroom is exceptional with vaulted ceiling and enormous comfortable bed. All bedding was amazing, beautifully co-ordinated with the softest, silkiest sheets. Not forgetting the super personal touches like a luxury welcome basket, coffee maker, assortment of teas, and a starter pack for the log burner. Loved the pictures the owners had taken during the cottage’s renovation and the story of one of its more ‘famous’ or ‘infamous’(!) residents. We had a very very enjoyable week. Yes - the owners can be justifiably pleased and proud of their beautiful cottage.

    Superbly refurbished it truly combines bags of old world charm with all modern comforts. There really is lots of space. The whole property and experience were so homely, even down to the generosity of the everyday items (dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls, crockery, utensils etc) which often sees owners supply the bare minimum, to extract a few pence more in profit from the booking. Not so with Dan and Emma. And their communication throughout our stay was so warm and friendly. It is on a relatively busy road but shut the gates, close the front door and you are in your holiday haven. There are two outside seating areas and we were able to leave our bikes securely when they were off the the car rack. As a base to explore the Peak District it worked really well. Highly recommend.

    There was a wonderful welcome package awaiting our arrival and the owner was attentive at checking everything was ok with our stay. It's only a short walk to a lovely park and the town centre, with plenty of eating options. I would definitely stay at Rose Cottage again in future.

  • "Rose Cottage has been beautifully and tastefully renovated by the owners."

    It was clean and comfortable, and nothing was too much trouble for Emma and Dan when we had a "silly" query. There was plenty to do and see in Matlock and the surrounding area, and we would highly recommend this cottage to our friends.

  • "We have just returned from a weekend in Rose Cottage."

    Emma and Dan have lovingly and tastefully restored this property, and the interior design is stunning. This is no ordinary holiday cottage!! The photos don't even begin to do it justice! It's a beautiful, immaculate home and one we were all sad to leave. The house is full of character, and all rooms are spacious and cosy. It's so conveniently situated, with all amenities on hand and beautiful views of Riber Castle from the lounge and front garden. The bathroom is immaculate and the three bedrooms are all fantastic. The beds are extremely comfortable, with top quality bedding and tasteful furnishings. The outside spaces are lovely too, with rattan furniture, table and chairs, a barbecue and flower gardens. We even managed to park three cars on the drive. I can't recommend this place enough! We have already booked to go next Spring!

    Ideally situated and hands down the nicest cottage I have ever stayed in. It was maticulously clean and inviting, lovingly restored decorated and presented to a very high standard with all the added extras you could ever want, modern appliances under floor heating and a lovely welcome hamper on arrival. You can tell that the owners put lots of thought into providing everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and going that extra mile for your guests will always make a holiday stand out above others. We hope to visit again and will certainly recommend to family and friends Many Thanks Leah, Lee and the boys

  • "We had a wonderful long weekend at this beautiful cottage."

    Everything you could ever want and more was supplied by the owners, so nice a property we didn't dine out like we would normally do, as we just wanted to make the most of our stay here. It's the sort of cottage you dream of, how very fortunate the owners are.

  • "As soon as we arrived at the cottage we couldn't believe how perfect it was."

    The decor and location was spot on! There is literally no negatives about this cottage. There was everything you could possibly need. We were welcomed with a welcome pack containing milk, butter, bread, wine and jams. We were also given information about the local area and places to eat out/in. There was plenty to do in the house even if we never step foot out of it. There were games, books and DVDs which we took full advantage of. The attention to detail was marvellous, we even had little bath bombs! The house was impeccably clean and tidy. Even the things hidden in draws! Area is fabulous about a 5 minute walk into the centre of town. Some lovely bars, cafes and shops. Would highly recommend a stay at this cottage!

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!
