We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this featured bed and breakfast. Kate and Alan both made us feel very welcome and at home. The loft room is highly recommended with beautiful views across Matlock. Breakfast was fantastic a real taste of Derbyshire. Very clean bed and breakfast Will be visting again soon and have already recommended it to others. thankyou both for a lovely and enjoyable stay.

I have stayed in many B&B's during my years and have found the Sheriff Lodge to shine above all others. The owners, Alan & Kate are exceedingly friendly & informative. The B&B is exceptionally clean, the rooms are of the same high standard. For breakfast a menu is supplied that suits all walks of life and are given a choice of how much or little you wish to eat. Everything is provided to make your stay more enjoyable, ie., papers, refreshments, chocolates, dvd's, books, etc .
If I am down in the Matlock area I would most certainly book into Sheriff Lodge again.
If you choose to stay at Sheriff Lodge try the freshly baked bread (Alan's handiwork) every morning. Lets not forget about Hattie.

Room Tip: Great view from the 'The Loft'

This is our third visit to sheriff lodge and it just keeps getting better. As a coeliac the gluten free breakfast is very important to me, really good choice on the menu, the homemade bread and jam is delicious, Kate and Alan really do pay attention to detail. Cosy, clean environment.

Myself and my partner stayed here for two nights last week. what a cosy womderful little place the rrom was clean bright spacious and traditional. kate and alan the owners were absolutly lovely and made you feel incredibly welcome. the breakfast was lovely so much to choose from and nothing was too much trouble. alans homemade bread is a must try. was a little stuck on where to eat on the first night but the handy book in the room was full of ideas and menus to match. this was a great help. we decided on the sycamore pub just up the road and it was a great choice. we look forward to staying again in the future.

Thanks for your lovely posting - and it's great to see that the information that we provide in each room has had the desired effect. Kate and I take a great deal of trouble to track down the best places to eat and drink - a really tough job and one which I wish I could set against tax:-)

See you soon

This review is long overdue. I've not stayed in a bed and breakfast before so wasn't sure what to expect. This one was truly beautiful and the attention to detail is incredible. The owners are so welcoming and friendly, such nice people.

The room was really lovely, spotlessly clean and light and airy. Comfortable bed and great bathroom. I stay in hotels for 3 nights every week for work and most of them are 5 star hotels throughout Europe. This bed and breakfast is a million times better than most of them.

I hope the owners wife has made a full recovery from her illness, she was in hospital during our sty there. Thank you, we will be back soon.

Wow - 5 star review - thank you very much - only, I'm in trouble now!
You have told the world how good your stay was...and that it was great in spite of Kate (aka my Boss and gorgeous wife) being in hospital - now she thinks Sheriff Lodge is better without her!

But seriously - thank you for your incredible posting - and we hope that your first stay in a B&B will not be your last - there are some out there even better than us - did I say that out loud?

Kate is making a slow but sure recovery from the Staphylococcal Toxic Shock Syndrome that resulted in multi-organ failure back in February of this year - completely out of the blue - and she very nearly didn't make it. She is still here though and we both continue to put every effort into maintaining Sheriff Lodge's position as the number 1 B&B in Matlock - according to TripAdvisor:-)

See you again soon and thank you once again for your gleaming response.
Best wishes
Alan (and of course Kate) @ Sheriff Lodge

I booked this hotel as a surprise weekend for my husband's 50th birthday. Having stayed in several other B&B's around the country, this was by far the best. From the moment we arrived Alan and Kate could not do enough for us even down to the birthday candle on my husband's fried bread!! The room was perfect for us. The view was fantastic. The breakfast absolutly wonderful, everything we could imagine was available. The restaurant recommended for our meal on Saturday (Stones) was again perfect. If you are unsure of where to visit whilst staying in Matlock, just ask Alan and Kate, they are the best tour guides and know all the best pubs!! Would definately visit again.

Mmm...'know all the best pubs' - oops, what does that say about us? Hey it's a tough job but someone has to make regular visits to the best pubs and restaurants in the area - all in the interests of guest comfort you understand:-)

Good to know that we looked after you so well - and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Our daughter was married at Matlock Bath on 1st September, 2012 and she chose Sheriff Lodge for herself and our family to stay in the night before and on the day of the wedding. Kate and Alan were the most wonderful hosts and gave us the run of their hotel. They accommodated visits during the day from the florist, hairdresser and photographer. The accomodation was excellent with extremely comfy beds and very tasteful decor and cleanliness. The breakfasts were mouth watering, especially Alan's home made bread. We cannot speak highly enough of the kindness we were shown and we feel we have new friends in Kate and Alan. We hope to return to this very special and unique "home from home" sometime in the future.
