Venture out on long walks and cycle rides; visit nearby attractions and enjoy your proximity to Matlock, 3 miles away, and Bakewell, 6 miles away.

Open the front door of this period home to find airy accommodation and exquisite features. Stroll into the lounge, where members of your party can read, play games or relax in front of the Smart TV, while the wood burner glows in the background.

We all had the best week ever - thank goodness I booked Deeley House and not the one that was slightly cheaper. Very good value for money - and I strongly recoment it!! A lot of care and thought has gone into every room of Deeley House. I could not have had a more beautiful or more welcoming house for the family gathering to celebrate my 70th birthRead moreday. It was useful that I could contact the owner/manager with a couple of queries I had, she was really pleasant and helpful. Thank you! Hide

A genuinely lovely place to stay that completely lived up to our expectations. There were 7 adults in our family and yet the house still felt spacious whilst still being warm and homely. Its a great base to explore the beautiful Peak District, with Matlock, Bakewell and Chatsworth House just a short drive away away, And the owner was helpful and reRead moresponsive to any questions - nothing was too much.

Lovely house with comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms but not equipped for 8 people with 2 outdoor chairs and 2 sofas. The location isnt ideal with the constant traffic noise from the A6 but possibly this could be overlooked if there were no other compromises as there is easy access to lovely walks and local shops. Would benefit from more detailed lRead moreocal information . Hide

The house was absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. The owner was at the end of the phone to sort any problems we had and also to give recommendations.

A wonderful large house, very clean and comfortable and really well located for day trips. Its set back off the road (so traffic isnt a nuisance). Beds are very comfortable and great powerful showers. Superbly equipped kitchen too. We had a great stay, thank you!

In the heart of the Peak District with spectacular scenery all around. The #1 negative was its location (which surprisingly none of the reviews mentioned): the house is located on the A6 between Derby and Manchester. Always constant traffic day and night, which meant sleep was often disturbed. A great disappointment.

A wonderful house in a brilliant central location. You'll need a car for everything but do not be put off being near the A6 as whilst you can hear the road, I'm a very light sleeper and it never woke me once.
