We parked in the car park and was cheerfully welcomed at the door by Adrian, who showed us to our beautiful, comfortable warm and immaculately clean room. The hosts had decorated the home for Christmas so nicely, the Christmas tree in the breakfast room was so pretty, and the subtle trimmings in the guest lounge, just very sophisticated. ( the lounge is very comfortable and just very very nice). From first arriving at Glendon we instantly knew we were in for a treat and we were not disappointed at all. We loved every minute!!! We have stayed as a larger group before in their self catering property Derwent House and that was amazing so we knew we would be in safe hands again!!! ...and well just brilliant again!!!
Our room was the four poster room which included a fridge full of goodies and even fresh milk for our drinks. A spacious bathroom and gorgeous views outside and up to the church. We were offered hot drinks and a slice of delicious home baked cake. This started our weekend off a treat.
We did choose this weekend specifically as it was the Matlock Xmas Fair and we wished to get into the Christmas spirit, we were joined by friends who also stayed in the guest house and as soon as we arrived at Glendon it felt very festive like Christmas should feel. Friends together for a enjoyable weekend away.
We really do like Matlock and the surrounding areas and it was just so nice to visit it at Christmas time, all trimmed up and the atmosphere was just very relaxed and happy.
The room was very comfortable, our bed was a delight. So much so we both slept late we were obviously very relaxed. We showered under hot strong showers, and dressed for breakfast. And what a treat that was too, we met Damien who was very attentive and personable. And the breakfast was served beautifully, just so gorgeous even the porridge arrived with a twist not going to spoil it for you if you decide to stay and you should but lets just say the porridge was divine, then I followed that with a full English. I was set for the day.
Glendon has it all and the hosts are so friendly and they have got it just right, they are doing a wonderful job, just keep doing what you are doing!!!.
We will be back and all I can say is thank you for making our weekend away with friends such a happy memorable one. So looking forward to our next time with you in March as its my parents 50th wedding anniversary and we are having a family weekend in Glendon, just can't wait. Thank you , and any one reading this looking to book all I can say is do it you will not be disappointed at all in fact you will return !!!!
