Anne and John were extremely welcome even though we arrived late on our first evening. The room was tastefully decorated and very clean with chocolates and muffins to enjoy too! We stayed three nights and started the day with a sumptuous breakfast. We enjoyed fresh fruit and Greek yogurt, followed by a breakfast of our choice. I had two vegetarian... More

We had to call ahead to say we would be ariving late. We arrived just before 10pm and were made very welcome. Went out for the night and returned quite late. We were treated to an amazing breakfast on both mornings of our stay; our hosts were so friendly and chatty they pretty much count as in house entertainers -... More

We stayed for one night to break our journey back home to the north. Ellen house is perfectly placed for a short stroll into Matlock. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable and the breakfast superb! The Viva Italian restaurant was recommended we got the last free table and the meal was brilliant.........well worth a visit.

A flying visit after a cancellation at our previous choice of destination fully worked out for the best. The room may not have been huge but that was made up fare their personal touches and individual warm cosy style of the environment as a place to sleep it can't be faulted.

Recommended by in-laws as somewhere to use as a base, the warmth of the greeting expended to us recently was very welcome. Ann and John, the Proprietors, could not do enough to help. Rooms exceptional - we especially appreciated the "twiddly bits" that I guess all guests benefitted from - chocolates and home baked biscuits or buns etc! No extra... More

Stayed one night on a sightseeing trip to Chatsworth house. Lovely twin room with ensuite bathroom. Anne's homemade flapjacks were waiting for us on the tea and coffee tray. Don't miss them,they are in the biscuit jar. I would have stayed another night just to have some more of these. Johns breakfast was perfectly cooked with little extras like cheese... More

So many wonderful things to say about Ellen House. Location was perfect to village center, to the rail station and both bus stops, so no rental car is even needed. (The bus stop at the Co-op Grocery Store offers frequent and easy, easy access to Chatsworth). Also, the house had access to two different trails (Limestone Way, Derwent Valley Heritage... More
