Rose Cottage is perfectly located for a break in the Peak District. The cottage itself is large and roomy and has been beautifully renovated. There's a good pub practically next door and a fish and chipshop a few yards away, but if you are inclined to cook then the kitchen has everything you could want. As walkers, we appreciated the large utility room with a place for boots to dry off and for wet coats. The living room and dining room are very comfortable - we spent one very wet, cold afternoo lounging around in front of the fire with books. Upstairs, the bathroom is beautiful with an excellent shower and good size bath. There are three bedrooms - two of which have enormous beds made up with high quality bedding. I cannot find fault with this property and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Me and my girlfriends booked the cottage for our annual New Year escape from the family break.
We booked Rose Cottage after browsing different sites as the photos looked great but in actual fact when we arrived we realised the photos didn't do it full justice. The whole place is beautifully decorated with top of the range furnishings. It really is one of the nicest places we've stayed
Matlock is a lovely place with lots to see which we did on the Saturday but for the rest of the time we had just what we needed within a 2 min walk.
Friendly pub next door and a small store on the corner...ideal for us ladies
We have decided not to search for a new place for next January we were that happy with the cottage we are booking again.
We had the most wonderful stay in Rose Cottage over Christmas. It is very beautifully renovated but also very comfortable and with plenty of room for Christmas activities. My daughters and I loved the very tasteful Christmas decorations.It was a perfect venue for Christmas but I intend to try it during the summer too.
We have just had a week long break in this stunning cottage. Ideally situated and hands down the nicest cottage I have ever stayed in. It was maticulously clean and inviting, lovingly restored decorated and presented to a very high standard with all the added extras you could ever want, modern appliances under floor heating and a lovely welcome hamper on arrival. You can tell that the owners put lots of thought into providing everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and going that extra mile for your guests will always make a holiday stand out above others.
We hope to visit again and will certainly recommend to family and friends

If you’re considering whether or not to book this house, just do it! I cannot express the amazing experience we had with this beautiful, modern and luxurious. We wished we could have stayed longer but when we booked it was already full! It is super close to the beautiful Peak District and only a little while to the town of Bakewell. We had such great fun in the surrounding areas and had the perfect cottage to come back to and relax by the fire in the evenings!
I cannot recommend Rose Cottage highly enough. It is such a charming cottage which has been renovated to a very high standard and you can feel a lot of love has gone into it! We couldn't fault it- lovely and warm on a cold snowy weekend, wonderfully comfortable beds and a very well equipped kitchen. The hosts had thought of everything, including a lovely welcome bag of bread, wine and milk etc and Emma was brilliant at ensuring we had everything we needed. Location is great for exploring and is near to local amenities in Matlock- but the cottage is set back enough from the road with a big gate that it feels very private. Thank you to Emma and Dan for a lovely stay. We would love to come back again.
We recently had the pleasure of staying at Rose Cottage while visiting the Matlock area from Canada.
The cottage is situated within easy walking distance to shops, great restaurants, the chip shop and a neighbourhood pub, perfect!
The hosts made themselves available when needed but had anticipated our needs in advance and the cottage was stocked, warm and welcoming on our arrival.
There was only the 2 of us but we did some entertaining while we were there and it was spacious with everything provided to prepare and enjoy our nights “at home”.
We look forward to returning to Rose Cottage on our next visit.
