I stopped here with 5 friends on a walking weekend in the Peaks. When we arrived we were greeted by both Alan and Kate our congenial hosts. Our rooms were spacious clean and very nicely decorated. There was an animal theme with paintings of squirrels on the walls, other paintings by Kate herself, cuddly toys on the bed with others... More

From the moment we drove into the car park we knew this was going to be an amazing stay. Kate opened the door and greeted us like family. We were made to feel so welcome by Kate and Alan. We were given a room key and the front door key and told to come and go as we pleased. The... More

Allan and Kate were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Its the personal touches that made it, as it was our anniversary there were flowers on our table at breakfast and there was a cake and bottle of champagne in our room. Breakfast was very good especially Allan's award winning homemade bread and jams they were amazing.... More

My Mum, daughter and myself stayed here this weekend and absolutely loved it. Our room was lovely and warm on arrival, nice and bright, clean and homely. The beds were very comfortable with lovely warm quilts and fluffy pillows. Everything had been thought about, even an emergency kit incase we had forgotten anything. The owners were very friendly and welcoming... More

We stayed at the well appointed Sheriff Lodge recently and were very pleased with the levels of attention to detail. Alan and his wife really couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and have a wonderful feel. Excellent service by all and a superb breakfast. And you must try Alan's award winning bread, as seen on TV!!!... More

We would recommend the Sheriff Lodge and would book here again. Alan greeted us by name on arrival and gave a great introduction to the facilities. We had a lovely large room and the large beds are really nice. Our bathroom was somewhat dated but spotless and we understand there are plans to refurb these. My pet hate though is... More

Thanks YvieC for your comments...a 224 word TripAdvisor posting deserves a considered response I think. Thank you for lovely comments about the large room and large beds and I understand your frustration at coming across something that you describe as a pet hate. Anyone reading this response, please remember we own Sheriff Lodge, it is a bed & breakfast not... More

From the friendly arrival to when we left, we could not fault Sheriff Lodge. Plenty of parking, nice lounge area with free use of laptop, books, local information books and leaflets, DVD's and games. A fridge for guest use which was also supplied with juice and sherry for guests. Stayed in the Dray. Huge bed, large wardrobe, dresser, 2 chairs,... More

I couldn't have asked for more from my stay. I visited with my 12 year old daughter who was swimming in Matlock that weekend. The location was perfect and the accommodation was spotless. Breakfast was wonderful and even made for us very early (6.45am) on Saturday morning. Loved the little extras; fridge in living room, internet and little chocolates. Would... More

We stayed at the Sheriffs Lodge on Dimple street ,Matlock Bath in August. Our Hosts were great and could not do enough to make us and our friends welcome. The rooms were spacious and airy and themed on wild animals. The breakfast was first class and Alans legendery home made bread and marnalade just had to be tried even though... More

Myself and my husband stayed for only one night as we were attending a wedding in the area. The owners were friendly and helpful allowing us to put our bags in the room before checking in time, as we would be at the wedding all day and night. We were also provided with a map and given directions to a... More
