Larsas Retreat is situated in a beautiful and ideal location for visiting the many attractions the Peak District has to offer. CHATSWORTH HOUSE is only a 15 minute drive away and ALTON TOWERS is within good driving distance. Walkers can enjoy all levels of walks; along trails, across peaks and dales or even over rugged moorland. The adventurous are spoilt for choice; ballooning, rock climbing and canoeing are to name but a few, whilst families can adventure down caves, view the scenery from high above in a cable car or even zip wire through the tree tops! If that all sounds like too much, we have many quaint villages, farmers markets and antique shops to wander around and there's always the option to just simply sit back on the terrace with a glass of wine and a good book and enjoy the FAR REACHING VIEWS of the valley and beyond.

Little Larsas Retreat is full of Modern Vintage Style. Vintage finds sit along cherry picked pieces making a fun, fresh and relaxed interior. The property includes plenty of original features; cornices, ceiling roses and sash windows, which are all complimented with cheery English Heritage fabrics and wallpapers. The combined effect is stylish, homely and welcoming and time and time again our guests comment on this. Just look at our Trip Advisor reviews!

THE HEART OF ENGLAND / PEAK DISTRICT / DERBYSHIRE REGION...The scenery around Matlock is magnificent. Originally a hamlet with one of only a few crossing points along the length of the River Derwent which carves its way through a ridge of limestone just south of Matlock in order to reach the lower ground to the South. This part of the valley is spectacular, steep-sided, winding and wooded, with high cliffs such as High Tor towering above attracting many rock-climbers, walkers, fishermen and bird-watchers. Some of this dale is a National Nature Reserve representing some of the best examples of wildlife habitat and geology in the White Peak area of Derbyshire being renowned for its range of rare flowers, otters and buzzards. The area is perfect to explore on foot or cycle. The Peak District is a walker's paradise. We are extremely fortunate to live in one of the many beautiful parts and within a stones throw are stunning walks by the river.

All within an easy drive are Matlock Bath, Chatsworth Stately Home, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Youlgreave, Spa town of Buxton and the whole of The Peak District National Park on your doorstep.

Gorgeous Place

  • 5 of 5

We relaxed as soon as we arrived at this gorgeous property. Warm, welcoming and spotless. The views are to die for! There was tons of information on the area and we certainly made the most of our stay and visited as much as we could in the time we had. We particularly enjoyed Bakewell Chatsworth and Ashborne. The friendly local is a minutes walk and there are plenty of amenities in Matlock Town inc. M&S Food Hall and Sainsbury's. Thank you Debbie for letting us stay, we thoroughly enjoyed it and plan to come back later on in the year to continue exploring the area!

We've had a fab break here. There was a great welcome upon arrival with afternoon tea, fresh flowers and soft music. The property is beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The local pub is only a minutes walk and they serve fresh home cooked food which was delish. You can walk into Matlock town if you wish and the location is ideal for exploring the surround areas and visiting the many attractions. The owner was very quick to reply and very helpful and friendly..Thank you!
