We stayed at Robertswood house last weekend and what an amazing time we had!
There were 15 of us, mixture of couples and singles. all in our 30s
It was a real WOW moment when we drove up the hill to the house, it really is stunning and so are the views. We spent the first few hours just sitting in the garden relaxing with some wine enjoying the late sunshine and enjoying the view. Then it was inside for home made cocktails at Robertwood's very own bar! we all took it in turns to do our best Bet Lynch impression!
The cottage is clean, nicely decorated and furnished throughout, the kitchen especially is well equipped as are the beautiful bathrooms.
Close enough to Matlock to walk, or there are plenty of local taxi numbers behind the bar!
We will definetly return, David, (the owner) was excellent and so friendly and helpful when we were booking.

I stayed at this property with eight girlfriends to celebrate mine and a friends birthday and it was fabulous and in a great location within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to go. The rooms were clean and tidy, each with their own bathroom and individual decor. The dining room and kitchen were immaculate and the lounge area, including a bar which can be used to stock your own drinks was plenty big enough for us all. There's a tv with free view in the lounge and also in each of the bedrooms. All in all I can't fault the property or the location and would definitely recommend it to a large group looking to get away. The only downside is if you're less mobile and don't have a car as it's a very steep drive up to the house.
Had a great weekend. Very spacious house with excellent kitchen facilities to cater for a large group.
Made full use of the spa garden.
The only observations would be the house would benefit from a larger fridge and a freezer, more rubbish/recycling facilities and a touch up with the decor in two bedrooms.
We visited the house in may half term as a family get together plenty of room for the 16 of us the house was great with every thing you needed the only fault was the lack of cleaning of the house on arrival kitchen is in need of a deep clean but all had a great time
This is our fifth visit to this excellent house. The service is good the rooms are spacious and the facilities great. It is value for money and in a superb location. The owners are attentive and listen to any issues that may arise. A very worthwhile destination and a superb place to enjoy relaxation and a great base for hill walking in Matlock and surrounding district.
A beautiful huge house ideal for a group of people. I will start with the positives first - The owners were very welcoming and quick to respond to requests.The spa garden is very nice and would recommend the hot tub, we did not use the sauna but it looks lovely. The views are wonderful we had really good weather and used the barbecue which is a very good size, the front garden has lots of garden furniture and is a lovely place to sit. All bedrooms are ensuite which is an added bonus,obviously some bedrooms are bigger and have better views than others but generally speaking all are very adequate, lovely comfortable beds. The accomodation was very suitable for our needs. The only negative comment we can make about this property is as previously mentioned in the other reviews is the low standard of cleaning and can fully agree that very little cleaning is done above and below waist height and it really could do with a lot of TLC.The kitchen needs a deep clean and the washing machine was still not working which was a nuisance having stayed for one week. It may also be worth mentioning to the owners about the fire exit door onto the spa garden, the exit from the side garden is pad locked. With more attention to cleaning this house could warrant an exceptional rating.
I spent 4 nights here with my brothers and sisters to celebrate an 80th and 70th birthday. The bedrooms are all ensuite which was a must for our group. There are very steep steps up to the house which is not so good for older people as there was no handrail.
As other reviewers have noted, the kitchen really needs a deep clean, the washing machine wasn't working which was a nuisance. A lot of the dishes in the kitchen cupboards had not been washed properly and the carpet and bin were not nice at all. I agree with the previous reviewer who remarked about the lack of TLC and general low standard of cleaning . However we had a lovely few days there and enjoyed sitting out on the front lawn in the sunshine with a glass or two of wine admiring the wonderful views.
