“The perfect weekend break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

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 was also a great power shower to wake you up in the morning, as well as Sky TV and wi-fi (although we did not use it).

Sue cooked a lovely breakfast for my husband with locally sourced sausages and bacon, as well as a perfect bowl of porridge for me each morning which I specifically asked for. We would definitely stay at Fernlea again the next time we visit Derbyshire. Thanks, Sue!

Room Tip: There is just one room, which is quiet and peaceful.

My wife and i stayed at fernlea for 3 night's while meeting friends from the midland,s . We were greeted at the door by Sue with a welcoming smile,,we were asked if we would like a brew as soon as we were indoor's ,shown our room , which was nice and clean , it also included sat t v and wi-fi which was free and very quick . We were told to treat her house as our's and to come and go as we wished . we were out for the day/evening and on our return the tea/coffee/milk was in our room , heating was on so we had to open a window for the night,we mentioned to sue and she turned our heating off with no bother.The morning breakfast was very good ,oatcakes sausage bacon mushrooms tomatoes beans egg toast cereal fresh fruit honey marmalade , this was not the menu it was the breakfast . Fernlea is only 5 min's walk from Matlock centre . a great 3 day's

Room Tip: Just ask Sue

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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

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 in my experience even in hotels. The power shower wakes you up beautifully and Sue the landlady cooks the most beautiful breakfast, full English. If you don't want this there is fruit, cereals, yoghurts everything you could thing of, but as the bacon and sausages are all from local butchers well worth trying.

We will return felt so welcome and at home

Room Tip: I believe there is just one room available which ensures great individual attention
