A lovely cottage in the splendid area of Matlock with plenty of attractions, a romantic getaway perfect for couples. Abacus House started life out as the local village school in Hackney, Derbyshire. It is believed to date back to 1910. This charming characterful Grade II listed cottage opens its front door onto the open veranda corridor, once having many small feet running along to get to class on time. Abacus House boasts a very high specification, with a modern stylish kitchen and bathroom, but manages to retain its quirky stylish twists throughout. A large open plan living area leads through to a dining area, still housing the characterful open grate arts and crafts fireplace, and then to the kitchen, with its large feature windows throughout, letting the light flood through the who...A lovely cottage in the splendid area of Matlock with plenty of attractions, a romantic getaway perfect for couples. Abacus House started life out as the local village school in Hackney, Derbyshire. It is believed to date back to 1910. This charming characterful Grade II listed cottage opens its front door onto the open veranda corridor, once having many small feet running along to get to class on time. Abacus House boasts a very high specification, with a modern stylish kitchen and bathroom, but manages to retain its quirky stylish twists throughout. A large open plan living area leads through to a dining area, still housing the characterful open grate arts and crafts fireplace, and then to the kitchen, with its large feature windows throughout, letting the light flood through the whole of the ground floor. A staircase leads to an upper floor with its fun and interesting layout, including a bed and bathroom, along with a seating area complete with cushions to relax on and enjoy the view from the school windows.

This is an ideal base from which to explore the region’s attractions including the magnificent stately homes. The beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are an absolute must see, or visit the picturesque villages of Bakewell and Ashover (Cardale in TV’s ‘Peak Practice’) which are both close by.
