Just fantastic. Great room, excellent food, lovely people, good parking. We had a travel cot ready in our room and loads of lovely tea and coffee to have after some great days of exploring the Peak District. Will definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone.

After a good day walking in the area five of us stayed in The Warren room. We received a very warm welcome and the accomodation was brilliant plenty of room for five big blokes. The breakfast next morning was awesome and the homemade "award winning bread" must not be missed. I have stayed all over the world in all sorts... More

If you're looking for a great b&b in the Peak District I can honestly say this is one of the best I've come across. Kate and Alan are fantastic people and his "The One Show Best Bread" is second to none. We stayed for four nights and would recommend the Sheriffs Lodge to friends and family

Sheriff Lodge itself is a beautiful place to stay and a short walk from the village. I stayed her with my wife and child. Greatly impressed. Kate and Alan are magnificent cheerful hosts; the latter being taller than the welcoming doorways and probably the most kind-hearted and charming fireman in Derbyshire. Kate was a hugely accommodating and jovial spirit. The... More

Very comfortable rooms with many thoughtful extras. Wonderful breakfasts, all tastes catered for and lovely home-made bread. Do try the Eggs Benedict. Kate and Alan had a lot of information on local walks which we found very helpful. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Found Sheriff Lodge via Tripadvisor. Good B&B - the room we have was pleasant, the breakfast very good and you didn't feel as you were intruding, which I often do at B&Bs and is why I generally don't stay in them. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. Plenty of parking. Quick stroll into Matlock.

we stayed for 2 nights in July. Alan & Kate are wonderful hosts. Friendly without being obtrusive. The rooms are spacious & well kitted out (even including a fan to keep cool & an emergency kit in the wardrobe.) Breakfasts are excellent & there are plenty of maps/guides fro the local area. We will certainly be returning!

Ten of us including Bailey (Dog) took over Sheriff Lodge for first & last nights of a four night three day walking holiday. Rooms and breakfast were perfect for us. Nothing was too much trouble. They even let us leave our cars, for the nights we didn't stay, while on our walking trip. Thank You. Mike

In June 2013 we reviewed this guest house on tripadvisor and posed the question “Will we be returning to Sheriff Lodge? Well, actions speak louder than words, and yes we did, for another three weeks this year during June 2014. Although there was never any doubt that we would choose to base our holiday at this excellent Guest House, the... More

Thanks Susiesue, We had a great day in London for the Live appearance on the show and a great day in Cardiff at The One Show Kitchen (actually Angela Grays Cookery School at Llanerch Vineyard) filming for the item. Fiona and Chris did great jobs and we spent the day talking bread. Looking forward to seeing you soon to share... More
