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

We stayed here for two nights while we visited the local area. The rooms were bright and clean and the breakfast (and the bread) was very good indeed. The only downside we found was that the bathroom and shower area was a little outdated so if you were staying there for a long period that might be an issue.

Thanks for an honest review - especially your comments about the en-suite - this is something that causes so much debate amongst our guests - we currently have 37 square metres of ceramic tile plus adhesive and grout in our shed waiting for a quieter time of year so that can shut and carry out your suggested upgrade:-) so we...

From the lovely welcome with tea and cakes to the spacious bedroom with a well stocked courtesy tray and large beds, then to the outstanding breakfast, which was so substantial I had no room to sample Alans "world famous" bread, though my wife,who had the cereal and fresh fruit, said it was up to specification which, from her, is high...

Have just returned from a two day stay at Sheriff Lodge. Upon arrival, we were shown into the beautiful garden and served with complimentary tea and biscuits. The room was of a good size with lots of little extras that show just how much Alan and Kate look after their guests. The breakfast was varied and delicious. We had a... More

Just returned from 2 nights at Sheriff Lodge. Fabulous. Comfortable bed, lovely room and en suite. Great breakfast, including Alan's prize winning bread. Nothing is too much trouble for Alan and Kate, they are a lovely couple and the whole place makes one feel so welcome. Just like home from home. Loved it and would certainly go there again and...

Wonderful food, excellent room and fabulous hosts. What more is there to say? We had a great three night stay in the best b&b in the Peak District. The rooms are light and spacious with the most comfortable beds we have experienced anywhere. Breakfast is a delight. The eggs benedict is mouth watering and accompanied by the homemade 'award winning... More

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
