“50th Birthday Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We all had a really wonderful long weekend at The Granary. Amazing location, fabulous views and a really helpful host in Amanda. The cottage was comfortable and pretty, beds very comfortable and entertainment provided by Jasper and Carrot the two most adorable cats you could ever meet. We would highly recommend The Granary and its peaceful, beatiful location. Couldn't have asked for anything more!

“Beautiful accommodation in peaceful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

person found this review helpful

Stayed at the Old Granary with my partner and our 2 year-old. Was a bit worried before we went about how child-friendly the cottage would be, but we had no problems at all and my daughter loved the resident cat, chickens and the outside space. The grown-ups loved the log fire, the views, and the hot tub! The extra luxurious touches, such as the champagne and chocolates on arrival, and having internet access, were definite bonuses.

The accommodation was beautifully decorated throughout, but was very warm and homely at the same time. It was equipped with everything we could have needed for our stay.

I would thoroughly recommend The Old Granary for a relaxing, peaceful getaway, for families and couples alike. We hope to return in the future.

“Luxury in Matlock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

person found this review helpful

We just about made it to Matlock from Manchester as the snow had been falling that week. I travelled with my partner, her Mother and step Dad. We parked up in about a foot of snow and it looked lovely from the outside and we were more than pleasantly surprised with the inside. With the huge kitchen complete with range cooker and large dining table and the lounge with its impressive log burner that definitely worked to a treat. We ventured upstairs to the immaculate on-suite bedrooms (with ultra comfortable beds as we found out). We then discovered the downstairs rooms had underfloor heating which was ideal given the weather. We stayed just Friday and Saturday and went back to Manchester on the Sunday.
We stayed in the cottage on the Friday and after a couple of bottles of wine we braved the conditions outside to try out the Hot-tub (What a fantastic experience), it was 40* in the Hot-tub and -2 outside and it was great. We ventured out to The Plough Inn on the Saturday night and we were so glad we did, it was one of the best meals I have had and the service was fantastic and inevitably we all ended up in the Hot-tub again!!. Tip - it was only a 1.8 mile walk but if you having a drink i'd recommend booking a taxi as the main road can be quite busy and there are no footpaths. So all in all it was a fantastic weekend at the Granary and we can't recommend the cottage enough and we certainly can't wait to go back.

“perfect rural retreat designed with families in mind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We went there for a week with our 3 1/2 year old and were joined later in the week by another family with a baby and a 3 year old......really well laid out and cosy cottage, space for all of us and really high quality decoration throughout. Loved the hot tub, even in the mist but generally had a Fab week of October weather with amazing views......:-)

“Beautiful accommodation in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed with my partner and a family of 4 at the Old Granary for 4 nights in September. It was perfect for what we wanted. The house is spacious, with 2 en-suite bedrooms, plus a twin room and another bathroom. The lounge and kitchen are also big and equipped with everything you will need for your stay. The house is decorated beautifully with care and attention to detail, including a wood-burning stove. It is set in a really pretty spot, with lovely views over the countryside. The hot tub is a real luxury, even in the rain! We were in there every evening. Amanda was very helpful and has provided lots of info about the area and things to do.

I am so pleased to have found the Old Granary on the internet, we will definitely be returning!

“Pure Luxury 5 Star for sure!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at this wonderful conversion near Matlock during September with our 2 young children. I have to stay this accommodation was simply the very best we have ever rented in the UK. The location was simply stunning in a very quiet area which was about 5 mins from Matlock. The property was finished to the highest standards with all the furniture & bedding etc being top quality throughout. The Hot Tub was a great bonus & brilliant for the kids & adults too! The view over the far reaching hills when your sat in the Hot Tub is priceless!

The Owners were also extremely helpful & knowledgeable about the local area & things to do & places to eat etc which was very helpful.

Would we go back? You bet we would! we have now found a perfect high standard property which ticks all the boxes!
