“Fabulous accommodation with excellent hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you want a great B&B this is the place to stay. The owners John & Sue are really lovely people nothing too much trouble and John does a lovely Full English Breakfast. The accommodation is spacious, very clean and tidy. Also peaceful so sitting outside is lovely in the evenings watching the sunset. There are lovely views over Matlock Bath and Matlock and of the valley, great walks long and short. Also close, but not too close to some of the attractions, the Heights of Abrahams and Gullivers to name but some. We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: All rooms lovely so call the owners who will try to accommodate all.

Beautiful B&B, immaculately clean, set high on a hillside commanding wonderful views of the valley. Our hosts simply could not do enough for us, they even picked us up in their car from Matlock station when we had some trouble getting a taxi. The rooms are first class and want for nothing and the beds are the comfiest I have slept in ever! The breakfast was excellent and the coffee, juice and toast kept coming! Highly recommended and I will definitely be returning.

fabulous B&B set high up the valley side. quiet, great hosts who couldn't do enough to help you feel right at home. The rooms are top notch, clean, comfy and modern with all those little extras . A lovely lounge with great views across Matlock Bath. The owners John and Sue are very knowledgeable on the area and suggested walks and places to eat out. Breakfast was one of the best, all fresh produce, from local suppliers we understand.

We had spent Saturday cycling on the Monsall trail and wanted somewhere to stay that was in easy reach and close to Matlock & Bakewell to wander around on Sunday. The Gables is situated in Matlock and has great views of the valley and you can see Matlock Bath cable cars easily but being outside Matlock Bath you can avoid the traffic problems of the town. The road up to the Gables is surprisingly steep but can be easily trafficked by most vehicles without problem. We were met by the owners Sue and Jon and shared a friendly cup of tea and homemade cake. The bedrooms and dining area have been recently renovated and is finished to an extremely high standard giving a fresh but homely feel. We stayed in the family room which was a very generous size, extremely comfortable, had a large en-suite with walk in shower and roll top bath and afforded superb views of the valley. The room had all of the usual refinements along with some homemade biscuits which were lovely. The attention to detail throughout was fantastic.
All in all, a very comfortable and friendly stay - great for walkers and visitors to Matlock - that I can't recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Family Room with the bay window overlooking the Matlock Bath vale. Has a walk in shower fit for two...
