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. Travel further afield to soak up the historical ambience and impressive architecture of Chatsworth House 7.5 miles away, which film buffs will recognise from Pride and Prejudice. Tow the little ones in a trailer as you tackle the High Peak Cycle Trail 2 miles away, or venture across to Carsington Water 7.5 miles away to appreciate the views.

From the moment we arrived, we could see this was a special place. The welcome pack and card were great. The cottage was very clean and has been equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Very comfortable for 4 adults, felt like a home away from home! Bike storage was very handy and we made use of this. Garden also great for sunbathing! Also gRead morereat communication from the owner before and during our stay. Being so close to the railway (only 2 trains an hour) was actually a novelty for us! Hide

We had the most fantastic stay, and the cottage more than exceeded our expectations. The owners had thought of everything we might need, and even left us home made jam (as well as some other treats) on our arrival. The showers/bath was amazing after a day out, and the location was perfect for visiting beautiful areas of the Peak District. Our youngRead more children, and the house and garden worked very well for them too. Note, it is close to the railway line which might be a problem for light sleepers Hide

Excellent stay, cottage was spotless and the owners went well out of their way to provide excellent quality equipment for the little one that stopped with us (cot, highchair etc.). Such a transformation compared to some of the photos on display of the property for before the owners got their hands on it. Book whilst you can!
