  • "This is a beautiful cottage, which has been lovingly renovated to a really high standard."

    We had a wonderful relaxing break enjoying the luxury of Rose Cottage and the surroundings area. Would highly recommend! Thank you

  • "Such a wonderful stay at Rose Cottage, everything was just spot on."

    Comfy sofas, comfy beds, every thing you can think of in the kitchen was top notch.I love an open fire so it was great to light it in the evening. There is a nice pretty quiet place to sit out at the back of the property, chairs, table and brolly. Just such a lovely cottage, big private gates you can close after parking up. Oh yes! and a lovely short walk through the park to all the amenities you could want. First rate cottage with first rate owners. Would love to return for another week. You have another gem here at Sykes, well done for having this one on your books. Stayed 14/06 -21/6/24.Forgot to mention the bedding, towels and throws all so lovely.

    The facilities were first class in every respect. There was an attention to detail evident that made us feel so welcome as a family - a range of books, dvds and games suitable for all ages. The cottage was located in the heart of Matlock which was enormously convenient. We had a wonderful holiday and have every intention of returning.

    Having rented holiday homes for some 30 years, this one has to be one of the best - well equipped and comfortable. We particularly liked the album showing how the cottage was restored and were impressed at all the work that has been done to such a high standard.

  • "Absolutely fantastic holiday cottage!"

    A true home from home with all the facilities we needed. Having 3 kids we always have to take a box of extra bits, mainly toys and books but on this occassion we didn't really need to. All ages were catered for (from 18months to adult age!) and we enjoyed many family games of Uno and Checkers during our stay. The small things that really made a huge difference to us was the other provisions that were provided; plastic cutlery & bowls, baby bath mat, cling film and bin bags...they all made a real difference to us just being able to get on an enjoy our holiday. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and the children thought it was a real treat staying is such a posh house. The gate on the drive is an added bit of security for parking your car but also keeping the children contained. We were a little worried about the well, but needn't of worried too much- the protective grill on the top stops anyone from falling in. The location of the cottage is brilliant. Within walking distance to the local play area (less than 5 mins) and Matlock Town centre. There is a bit of road noise but we were out most of the day so it wasn't much of a problem. All the big attractions were within 30mins which was an added bonus. Emma has done a fantastic job thinking of everything anyone staying here would need, from home comforts to luxury additions, thankyou!

    My friends and I had a very warm and cozy holiday. We love the house itself and the decorations so much. Everything is of a very high standard and we can see they’ve been well thought of. Emma is very helpful and always reply to messages promptly. The location is great as well. Matlock is such a nice and convenient town if you are to explore the Peak District. Will definitely recommend to other friends and families whoever wants to visit Peak District!

  • "Emma really is in a league of her own above any other ‘host’ for self catering accommodation."

    Right from the start with her communication in respect of your arrival. It’s obvious she has put so much thought into the extra special touches in the cottage from bath bombs to dry roasted peanuts! Also she has anticipated everything her guests might need….unlike other places we’ve stayed in there was no struggling to find a suitable glass in which to sample a bottle of local beer or a glass dessert dish in which to serve an ice cream sundae. We would highly recommend the Chatsworth Estate Farm Shop where we bought meat, fish and deli products on a few occasions – the range and quality was amazing. Needless to say we will be recommending Rose Cottage to anyone we know who wants to have a fantastic base from which to explore the Peak District

    We really loved the cottage and it was so comfortable with everything we needed to make it a perfect holiday. Emma left a very generous welcome gift; we really enjoyed the Bakewell cake, all the treats and the bottle of wine was a lovely treat. Rose Cottage is spotlessly clean, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Emma was very kind and ensured a stair gate was in place for us when we arrived. There were lots of other useful items for children such as a step and potty which made our stay so much easier. My daughter had the best time and really loved all the toys and books she discovered in her room. It was brilliant to have so many books and toys in the house, it really helped her to enjoy her stay. The cottage is beautiful and really well cared for with so many special touches to make it a really special place to be on holiday . Emma left lots of little extras such as chocolates by the beds and nuts in the sitting room which made us feel we were staying somewhere quite special. We all slept really well in the huge beds, again it was all very comfortable and spotlessly clean. If we can come back to the area again we would definitely want to stay at Rose Cottage it was perfect. Thank you so much Emma

    From the moment you enter the door, you are greeted with a warm, comfortable, clean and relaxed house which in less than an hour becomes a welcoming home from home. Emma has ensured that all the facilities are of the highest quality and has thought of everything a family may require. Indeed, the provision of extra books, dvd and toys to keep children and adults amused should the weather be poor is remarkable for a self catering unit. The house also benefits from a corner shop open from 6am until late as well as pub serving good food within steps of the front gate..what else could you need! Emma is also outstanding in the good communications she establishes with you long before your holiday even starts so ensuring that everything is perfect for the whole family. Well done!

    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 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.

    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.

Beautifully restored, it's evident that a great deal of thought and love had gone into restoring this building. As we stepped inside we were blown away. Warm, cosy rooms throughout, beautifully furnished and an attention to detail that surpassed expectations. The welcome basket brought a smile to our faces such a thoughtful surprise. The whole place wreaks luxury and homeliness. Perfectly located with just a short walk into Matlock. We had an amazing holiday.
