Garden is not adjacent to the property and therefore not really dog-friendly. It is across an alleyway and up steep steps so dangerous in the dark.

Excellent location, with easy access to the major attractions around Matlock Baths. Cosy terraced cottage on a quiet side road but no dedicated parking could be problematic.

Clean cottage in a great location. However a little pricey for what you get. Nice little touches such as milk and tea/coffee provided. On a not so positive note, for 4 adults and 2 babies it was a bit of a squeeze at times. Living room had 3 seats and limited floor space for little ones. Also stairs up to 3rd storey are really steep and a challengeRead more with a baby. Hide

A lovely and comfortable cottage. Everything you need is included. Nice garden and fireplace as well as nice decor. It felt very homely and cosy. It was our puppy's first holiday and he enjoyed it, so its a great place if you have dogs too. Very clean as well. The area surrounding it is beautiful too. Would recommend.

Great size cottage for 2 people and 3 dogs, clean with all the necessary things you would need, including some essentials like milk (nice touch, thanks!). Excellent location in a quiet street just a small walk from the village center, approx. 3 minutes walk away. There is a Pub at the end of the street and also other pubs and restaurants in the cenRead moreter, The Boat Inn, Greyhound or Tavern were all worth a visit for food or just drinks. We will be going back again and recommend!! Hide

Perfect liitle quaint cottage in perfect location. Everything you could possibly need and was an ideal place to relax and unwind. We spent lovely mornings enjoying breakfast in the well equipped garden and watching a few sunsets with a nice glass of chilled wine. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming especially The Bell Inn on the Corner. Karen thRead moree owner was very inviting and nothing was too much trouble for her. I cannot emphasise what a lovely tranquil place this is. Hide
