Matlock, Derbyshire, England
The Old Chapel is a superb cottage in a peaceful hamlet hidden away in the secret little valley of Wensley Dale just beyond Matlock. Nestling among houses on the slopes of Oker Hill, the Chapel's light and airy rooms, glowing log burning stove, oatmeally carpets, quality furnishings and extensive equipment make this a wonderful holiday retreat.

You will be spoilt for choice if you like walking - by the side of the river into Matlock, up on to Stanton Moor to see the 'Nine Ladies Needles', along lovely Wensley Dale, or out over the hills on the nearby Limestone Way. Or, if you are like me, it's just the stroll of an evening to the Square and Compass or Three Stags in Darley Bridge.

With walks a plenty you may decide to while away your days in and around Oker. But remember that Chatsworth House, the Derwent Valley Dams and...

We had a lovely stay in the Old Chapel which was ideally suited for a family break. The kitchen is a great size and the lounge area feels cosy with plenty of room still. Didn't fire up the log burner since the stove in the kitchen pumps out heat all day. The location is great being near Matlock which has... more

The Old Chapel was equipped with everything we needed. The hosts did not skimp on essentials such as hand soap, toilet rolls ,cling film, tinfoil and dishwasher tablets. We were very pleased with a lovely welcome basket of goodies to start us off. There was a great array of games and puzzles for staying in, plenty of leaflets and suggestions... more

How to get there
Airport: East Midlands: 24.9 mi
Railway: Matlock: 1.2 mi
Ferry: Hull: 87.0 mi
The M1 motorway skirts the eastern edge of Derbyshire and then it's just a 20 minute drive into the Peak District. Long distance buses serve many of the main towns in Derbyshire especially Buxton, Chesterfield and Derby. Derby and Chesterfield Railway Stations are on the Midland Mainline railway from London to Sheffield. Matlock Railway Station is the nearest station which is at the end of the branch line that runs from Derby to Matlock. Oker is very easy to get to by car but the little village isn't served by local buses. However, there are lots of taxi firms based in the surrounding towns. Matlock is the nearest town but Bakewell is also within easy reach. Manchester International airport and East Midlands airport are the closest airports to Derbyshire.
