We stayed in this apartment in a cold snap in January and early February. We loved being in this warm and comfortable apartment while enjoying a panoramic view of snow on the opposite hillside and the town of Matlock nestling below. The apartment is wonderfully well equipped with just about everything one could wish for. We appreciate the fact that the owners are literally next door just in case we needed to ask them for something. Parking was convenient and off street in a parking lot opposite the house. The apartment is well located for Matlock although it would be a bit of a climb if you decided to walk up Bank Rd.
I would highly recommend this holiday apartment! Spacious, well equipped and the owners have thought of everything. The living/dining/kitchen area benefits from lots of windows which provide spectacular views to the hills opposite. The balcony provides peaceful outside space to relax in good weather. Two large double bedrooms, (one with en-suite shower room and dressing room), a reading room with a good selection of books, DVDs, CDs and games for your use, and a large family-sized bathroom with THE most amazing jacuzzi bath (which I dare you not to try!!). The owners are lovely, are right next door and on hand for help or tourist information. The apartment has wi-fi, Off-street parking directly opposite the apartment. The apartment is ideally situated for touring the local area. We visited many, many places and the longest drive we had was just over an hour round-trip. It is only a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of Matlock, but allow yourselves 30 minutes for the walk back if you are using Bank Road (it is a bit steep). There are easier routes though. Matlock has lots of lovely shops, restaurants, a park, river and coffee shops. We enjoyed our stay very much and, as we only scratched the surface of things to do in the area, have already pencilled in a return visit.
My husband and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for a week from the august bank holiday weekend, we were joined, just for the weekend part, by my son and daughter-in-law. An ideal place for a family get together, with the beautiful views from the large verandah, and the amazing double jacuzzi bath (so big it takes 20mins to fill) it is hard to describe how nice this place is. There is even a 'reading room' with a huge bookcase filled with books, Cd's, and DVD's. There is space allotted for one car in the car park opposite, another car would need to use the restricted parking on the road, luckily we found this no problem as we had two cars only for the weekend, I'm not sure if weekdays would have been so easy. But altogether I would highly recommend this apartment.
This apartment is wonderful. It is very tastefully decorated and everything has been thought of, right down to a 'stitch in time' sewing kit! The reading room is an added bonus, and well stocked with books and DVDs. The jacuzzi bath is a welcoming sight after a day exploring the Peak District. Probably the best value, best decorated and most welcoming place we have ever stayed.
The other reviews are spot on. This is our second stay here and it is an excellent apartment. Very comfortable with absolutely everything you need. We can't wait to come here again next year.
