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

As soon as you step in, you are warmly welcomed by Kate and sit down to tea and cakes. As it was our second stay, we were catching up with news as you would do with family or old friends. The house is beautifully decorated and the rooms are very comfortable with a theme. This time we stayed in the... More

We spent two nights at this lovely B&B where we were made to feel very welcome. Beautiful house with lovely comfortable rooms where all the little extras have been thought of. Amazing breakfast especially the home made bread.

A gorgeous, comfortable b and b where every little detail has been taken care off. Wonderful welcome, amazing breakfasts, cosy sitting room and sherry before bed. The icing on the cake is the emergency kit in the wardrobe. Excellent value.

what a little gem. Lovely house, super rooms 10/10 for cleanliness, food, hospitality. We would normally stay in a large hotel chain but this place has made us change our opinion of b&b and guest house's. You could never be made to feel so welcome and treated so nice as you would in a large soulless establishment. There was nothing... More

We spent two nights at Sheriff Lodge about a week ago, following reviews on TA. It is quite central to the centre of Matlock, about 5 - 10 minutes walk. There is ample parking offroad. We stayed in "The Nest", a room on the second floor. We had good views over the town and surrounding countryside. There is tea/coffee making... More

excellent place to stay, Kate & Alan made us feel very welcome and the cooked breakfasts were delicious. The rooms were a good size and the beds were very comfortable and big. Will visit again soon. The extra touches of sweets and drinks available were well appreciated.
