The place is spotless. It is decorated beautifully. It is cosy, pretty and they have thought of everything.

The owners were welcoming, friendly and attentive.

We would definately like to stay again and would definately reccomend it .

Thank you for helping our 25th Wedding Anniversary one to be remembered.

From the moment my wife and I stepped into the Bird's Nest apartment, we felt completely at home. During Susan's guided tour, we were instantly impressed by the tastefully furnished rooms, and the atmosphere of calm that is evident throughout the apartment.
Despite staying just across the courtyard, Susan gave us plenty of space to enjoy our stay, yet was always on hand if we needed advice on where-to-go or what-to-see. She was very friendly and approachable... the perfect host.
The apartment is well-equipped and comfortable. The large living room, in particular, is a perfect place to spend a rainy day since it has Sky TV, a games console, DVD player and dozens of movies. And its sofa and chairs have the plumpest cushions I have ever settled into.
There's not a lot to see in Matlock Bath itself, but we could walk from the apartment into the surrounding hills within a few minutes. We also walked to Riber Castle, to Cromford, and to Matlock with relative ease. For those who want to venture further, the train station is a ten minute walk from the apartment. On the wettest day of our holiday, we took a train to Derby to see a movie.
The Fishpond pub is only a five minute walk away, and offers live entertainment in the evenings.
Prior to our stay in the Peak District, I spent a lot of time online, checking out accommodation. I chose The Bird's Nest because it appeared to tick all our boxes... and it certainly didn't disappoint. For comfort, convenience, and value for money, it cannot be faulted. It was simply perfect!

“Luxurious and comfortable accommodation with the warmest of welcomes”

We have stayed in the Birds Nest/Mole End apartments several times. Each time you go, you think that Sue and Abid have thought of everything - but the next time there are even more special touches that weren't there before!
The apartments are perfectly located on the edge of Matlock Bath, the parking (never easy in Matlock) in the beautiful courtyard is very welcome. The accommodation is of the highest possible quality and is beautifully appointed. It's so comfortable and welcoming that you feel you don't want to leave! We found the games room yet another bonus this time. Sue and Abid are on hand to help with any queries or questions (like lending us a map!).
As soon as we leave we are planning our next stay. We cannot recommend the apartments highly enough.

Being regulars in the holiday rental market, we took with us all the everyday requirements normally needed but these were unnecessary, as they were all supplied plus much more.

We were greeted by the lovely Sue on arrival who gave us a detailed tour of the property & told us to call on her whenever required. In addition to the things not normally supplied there were chocolates, wine, bath robes & many other extras to make our stay special.

Unfortunately I had an accident on a day out, just 36 hours before we were due to leave & Sue was very helpful, allowing us to stay on an extra day whilst we made arrangements to get home.

The property was beautiful, the service provided by Sue & her husband was first class & I would suggest anyone thinking of renting out holiday properties should look here for the perfect way to do it.

“Wonderful!”

A lovely apartment tucked away from the main road, perfect for exploring Matlock Bath on foot! Great location for visiting other nearby towns/attractions, plenty to do in the area, we ran out of time to visit them all so will definitely be back! The property its self in on the first floor, great size and can easily accommodate two people even enough room for four! Owner has really thought of everything even down to the minor details, real luxury apartment which could easily be considered a home from home. Owner only resides across the courtyard so is on hand if needed, otherwise they have prepared a folder full of useful information about the apartment and the area so you will never be stuck for ideas. Wifi is a little slow and really only available in the lounge but I think this is to be expected considering the area. Would highly recommend the Balti in Matlock Bath, had a great meal here! Owner let us park on the courtyard so access to the property unloading our car was made very easy, Sky TV is also provided with Sky plus which is also an added bonus. Just book this apartment you will not be disappointed!

Derbyshire is a great county to visit, with beautiful country houses to see and wonderful countryside. Matlock Bath is a really convenient base to explore the area, and The Bird's Nest is such a comfortable, well appointed apartment. The owners always make us feel welcome, and we love coming here! When can we find an excuse to visit again?

“Lovely place for a weekend break”

This is a lovely little place, that is spotlessly clean, and everything that you would ever need!
We booked this for a girly weekend away, and were pleasantly suprised by the size of the apartment, more than enough for 4 people for a week, let alone a weekend.
Sue met us on arrival and gave us a brief tour and showed us where everything was, including the little games room, and cushions for the outside seating in the lovely courtyard.
We were blessed with fantastic weather so did plenty of wlaking round Matlock Bath, the Heights of Abraham, and also tried the balti restaurant on Sue's recommendation, it was fantastic and we came back with a doggy bag!
Would definitely recommend, and come again.
