Matlock 2 miles.
This lovely stone barn conversion is situated next to the owners’ 17th century farmhouse, on their working arable farm, high up on Matlock Moor, just two miles north of the beautiful spa town of Matlock.
Tastefully furnished, this cosy cottage is ideal for walkers, as trails run right through the farm and past the doorstep, and those who take their walk following a small white ball around will feel chipper knowing that the prestigious Matlock Golf Club is just 130 yards away.
The sitting room with dining area has wooden flooring and is a sociable place to enjoy a meal and to snuggle up on the big squishy sofa in front of the woodburner-effect stove.
Step through to the well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, where you will find everything you need to create a culinary masterpiece, or fuel up in preparation for the many and varied adventurous days the area has to offer.
On the first floor is a double bedroom and a convertible twin room for flexibility, which have lots of natural light, and there’s also a contemporary shower room off the landing.
Outside is a large lawn, so you can sit and watch the sun go down with a glass of something you fancy.

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!
