We wanted a couple of days peace and quiet, and that's exactly what we got. As soon as we arrived Anne and John made us welcome and feel at home. Ellen house is so close to the town centre that even I could manage to walk there, I have spina bifida. Yet so quiet. We were in room 3, it... More

We stayed at the B&B last week to escape London for a few days and we both had a wonderful time! John and Anne were incredibly warm and welcoming and provided lots of help and advice about the local area and where to explore. The room we stayed in was great, with lots of really nice little touches - such... More

We stayed at Ellen House in early September for a weekend with our 7 month old son whilst attending a wedding in nearby Ashover. As many of you will know, travelling with babies is not always easy but Anne and John were so helpful in providing a cot and booster seat for him, being flexible with room service arrangements to...

I have to say that I was very pleased that we chose to stay at the Ellen House B&B during our recent visit (May 2014) to the peak district. Anne and John are an absolute pleasure to spend time with. They are chatty and friendly. John also makes wonderful breakfasts! I am a vegetarian and the choices are plentiful. They... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights with Anne and John in Matlock. We had the beach theme room (n°1) and found it very comfortable, decorated in soothing colours and with enough space to store our belongings. The B&B is also ideally located (about 5 minutes walk to the centre of Matlock), and the free parking is a huge bonus. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely B&B in July. The owners John and Anne were wonderful hosts offering excellent breakfast and comfortable rooms. They could not be more helpful and made sure my 94 year old father was well taken care of. A very enjoyable stay in this beautiful part of England. Jim & Ann, Victoria, BC, Canada
