We had spent Saturday cycling on the Monsall trail and wanted somewhere to stay that was in easy reach and close to Matlock & Bakewell to wander around on Sunday. The Gables is situated in Matlock and has great views of the valley and you can see Matlock Bath cable cars easily but being outside Matlock Bath you can avoid the traffic problems of the town. The road up to the Gables is surprisingly steep but can be easily trafficked by most vehicles without problem. We were met by the owners Sue and Jon and shared a friendly cup of tea and homemade cake. The bedrooms and dining area have been recently renovated and is finished to an extremely high standard giving a fresh but homely feel. We stayed in the family room which was a very generous size, extremely comfortable, had a large en-suite with walk in shower and roll top bath and afforded superb views of the valley. The room had all of the usual refinements along with some homemade biscuits which were lovely. The attention to detail throughout was fantastic.
All in all, a very comfortable and friendly stay - great for walkers and visitors to Matlock - that I can't recommend highly enough.
