I picked this B&B as part of the surprise for my boyfriends birthday and I am so proud that I booked it. The host was so welcoming and friendly when we arrived and was very informative about the area. When we saw the room I was lost for words. This lovely B&B beats any chain hotel I have ever stayed...

We don't normally use B&Bs but this is lovely. Very comfortable room, tasteful colour scheme and a breakfast to die for. Not easy to find but worth the effort. Spotlessly clean and friendly service. If you are looking for a B&B in the lovely Matlock area, look no further.

We stayed at Fernlea in Matlock for three nights and had a wonderful weekend break. The B&B is within easy walking distance of Matlock, which itself is an excellent base for seeing the Peak District. Sue was friendly and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble for her. Our en-suite room was lovely and the bed was extremely comfortable. There... More

Stayed here for 7 nights. Sue, who runs the place, was incredibly welcoming. Fantastic breakfasts and lovely, quiet en suite room with Sky TV and wi-fi. Absolutely perfect. Next time we go walking in the Peaks we'll be back.

Stayed at this B & B in October for 4 nights. We usually go for hotels but got a good feel from the website. What can I say you are welcomed as though you are one of the family, the bedroom is classy and comfortable with full sky tv and wi fi in with the price which is relatively unusual... More
