A former station master's residence sitting in the ideal spot for visitors to the Peak District, this family property is surrounded by outstanding landscapes, picturesque villages and unique attractions.
Studded within a wooded gorge and bordering the Peak District National Park, Matlock Bath has been a top destination for visitors since it was developed as one of the UK’s first tourist destinations in the late 17th century. Today, it is both a family-friendly destination and an excellent spot for catching up with friends over scenic walks, pub lunches and day trips to exciting attractions via the nearby railway. With plenty of routes to suit even the most hardened of adventurers and handy storage for bikes, the avid cyclists among you can put pedals to the metal or freewheel at leisure.
Boasting many of the original features from its former life as a station master’s house, your humble abode sleeps six with the added bonus of a wood burner, underfloor heating, and a large garden set against a woodland backdrop. Contemporary decor provides a unique twist on top of the property’s period charm, whether you are serving up a feast in the kitchen/diner or having a well-deserved soak in the freestanding bath upstairs. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in total, and the owners have thought of everything you need for a comfortable stay including a delicious welcome pack, a charcoal BBQ and USB plug sockets in every room.
Based just 1 mile from Matlock, you are in a perfect position for visiting popular attractions such as the Heights of Abraham, the mining museum and Gulliver’s Kingdom, a must for adrenaline enthusiasts.
