About the property

Less than a ½ mile away is the Steam Railway and Museum. Here you can book 1 or 2 hour lessons on the Royal Pioneer Steam locomotive. Medieval Haddon Hall, Bakewell and Chatsworth House are all within 5 miles and Matlock and Matlock Bath are only 1 to 3 miles distant, here you can visit The Heights of Abraham, Gulliver's Kingdom, antique shops, café, bars, restaurants, mining museum and the aquatic centre. For something a little more tranquil, take a stroll along the river from Matlock to Matlock Bath or choose one of the many other trails this stunning area has to offer.

About The Owner

This was our home and my children loved the space it offered as well as the scenic view the house was surrounded by. Unfortunately I am now ill and had top leave our home so I could live close to family. We kept the house with the hope that I may recover and one day return back to the house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Darley Dale

It offers a lot of space for large family that want to be together. Lots to do in and around the area, both for adults and children, but it also offers those piece and quiet if you just want to relax and chill on your holiday.

What makes this house unique

2 bathroom and a separate WC downstairs. A games room also if you want all the children to occupy themselves as you sit and chat over a coffee.

Very disappointing!

  • 1 of 5

While this property is advertised as 5 bedrooms, 2 are totally unusable. The bunk room and single room have mattresses that are so old the springs are visible with no foam or padding on top. Two of our party had to sleep on the couches in the living room. One of the double mattresses was very uncomfortable but not quite as bad as the singles. The towels provided (1 each) are very small and thin. The house is located on a busy road and traffic noise is heard constantly. The couch in the "games" room is so dirty no one would sit on it. When it was last updated, it appears to have been done by someone who had no idea how to do repairs. Also, they expect the renter to take their own recycling to the recycling center somewhere in town or charge you . We have rented many houses through HomeAway over the years and this is the worst house we have ever been in. I would have given it negative stars if possible.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary Thank you for sharing your comments. Firstly Warney Lea has been a holiday let for almost 5 years and no one has complained about beds being uncomfortable. There were no signs of anyone sleeping on coaches as all beds had been used by your guests. Towels are the same standard provided by most holiday lets across the U.K. The house has been advertised as being on a main road but sitting back compared to the other houses in the area. The games room was not untidy or dirty and has a sofa bed which has no signs of marks or dirt on it. As for the recycling, we encourage all guests to recycle as much as possible because most of the rubbish collected by the council will go to landfill. We have clearly described where the recycling locations are and they are well within reach of the house and can be done as you leave Matlock so it does not require you to go out of your way. You left a very un-polite note for our cleaners saying you could not be bothered to dispose of the rubbish and left it in the house, but had you politely said that you had no time, or you could not dispose of it then the cleaners would have gone out of their way to do it for you with no further charge. We have never had such comments by any of our other guests in the last 5 years of letting. However your comments have been noted and we will make the necessary adjustments if they are needed to improve experiences of future clients.
