Please see above. Lots of issues we weren't happy with. The TV and shower were the only good things. There are some big issues above and made it unenjoyable. Especially the fall on the step that was wobbly and broken.

Ideally located lodge within a short walk of allnthe amenities in Matlock Bath and Matlock. Serviced well by public transport to travel further afield should you wish to leave your car in the free space across the road (parking can be a real issue, especially at weekends) Overall delighted with our accommodation and wouldn't hesitate in using again

The cottage was perfect, clean modern, well equipped, everything you needed for a holiday rental. The shower was amazing. The location is quite good, but it is very close to the main A6 t road which does generate traffic noise. Parking is difficult at weekends and bank holidays when the weather is nice. Great centre for exploring the Peak District.

A fantastic apartment, spacious living, dining, kitchen area. Great shower, very comfortable bed, sofa. Two wide screen TVs , easy walk into Matlock Bath and Matlock, short drive to Bakewell. Only downside for us, you can't stop outside, to load, unload car,plus wanted to pay for 7 day parking at station, but could only pay daily.

Fantastic cottage with all the home comforts you could need. Comfortable bed and amazing shower. Plenty of space for a couple with a fully equipped kitchen. We had no reason to contact the owners other than to ask for a slightly earlier arrival which was no problem whatsoever.
