“Perfect”
Reviewed March 15, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What can I say about this cottage? We loved it!

Car parking - Off road space. No problems parking.
Value - Amazing value!
Bathroom - Spotless and modern.
Bedrooms - Clean & warm. Bedding & towels provided.
Living area - Open plan. Kitchen has all you need. View to the church was lovely- the church is lit up at night. Packet of biscuits on arrival - a lovely treat. Sofa was comfy. TV has Sky. DVD's & books if required.
Location - 5 minute walk into Matlock through the park. Matlock is lovely. It has independent shops as well as high street brands. Big Sainsbury's near by. Easy walk to the train station - the line goes to Newark via Nottingham & Derby. The X17 bus goes to Chesterfield & Sheffield from outside the apartment & a bargain at £5.80 for a Day Explorer that includes the trams.

Owners - Lovely.

We had a perfect break & look forward to going back. The only thing to note is that the property can only be reached by outside steps.

“Brilliant apartment”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Ideally located apartment for all amenities including doctors, shops etc just a short walk away.

Apartment has all the things needed for an enjoyable stay. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk & biscuits on arrival. Spacious lounge/kitchen/diner & well equipped. Comfy beds & overall very clean. Beautiful peaceful church view from lounge windows. Roadside location but not noisy. Really friendly helpful manager. Happy to recommend.

“Comfortable, spacious apartment wth everything you could need”
Reviewed May 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely clean apartment. Within walking distance to the centre of Matlock with restaurants and pubs. There is one pub just across the road and a local convenience store. The apartment had everything we needed and there was easy parking. The key collection arrangements were fine and the welcome was great.

“Brilliant flat & location”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The flat was walking distance to town.The flat was bigger than in the pictures. It also had board games and some toys. It was very thoughtful to leave chocolates and champagne for new year & the Christmas tree was still up. We had a lovely stay.

“Highly enjoyable”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A well located apartment, clean, tidy and comfortable. The hosts made us very welcome with little touches of a pint of milk and box of chocolates. Although the parking area tended to get busy in the early morning we were not affected as spent the days out visiting Dovedale, The Heights of Abraham, Carsington Water and Crichton. There are steps which you need to climb to gain access so possibly not suitable for all. There is a lovely well maintained park just 5 minutes walk which leads you into Matlock centre. We would certainly consider visiting this apartment again in the future. It suited the 3 of us well.

“More than exceeded expectations”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Just returned from a wonderful weekend at this property. Key collection arrangements were most efficient and we entered a warm, clean, comfortably most welcoming apartment- exactly as shown in the photos. The position was excellent- just minutes away from the park and the town centre shops. There was no problem at all with noise despite celebrations for the Victorian Christmas weekend. being in full swing. The double glazing in the main bedroom was excellent and there was no evidence of the noisy air vents mentioned in some other reviews. We never met the owner showed us in and both he and the people we met from other apartments were all most friendly. Matlock and the surrounding area have much to recommend them and this apartment is a great base from which to explore.
