About the property

Cottage near Matlock, Derbyshire Dales, England - Stone Cottage With 1 Bedroom Accomodation All On One Level

'Miles Around Cottage' enjoys a peaceful and quiet location. There is no Wifi. Stunning panoramic views over the Derwent Valley and a peaceful setting on a non working farm, make this beautiful, tastefully furnished stone cottage for 2 an ideal base for enjoying the Peak District and it's many attractions. Superb rambles from the doorstep - the Limestone Way passes through the farm and the summit of the Heights of Abraham cable car and Great Masson Cave are only a short walk - yet Matlock's many pub's, restaurants and shops are just a mile away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I've been on holiday here several times as the location is so wonderful! The cottage is warm, perfectly clean and very comfortable.You can spend a whole holiday just sitting on the balcony looking at the view extending for “Miles Around”. Pick a place in that view and there is a network of public footpaths that will take you there. I love walking so it is fantastic to be able to find a walk out in any direction without even getting in the car. But, if you are not into walking there is so much to do: Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Crich Tramway Museum, Caudwells Mill, a steam railway and many more attractions are all close by. Thank you Jane and Michael for providing my perfect, relaxing getaway. Can't wait to return!

Exactly as advertised but better!

If you are looking for a countryside setting, peace and quiet with stunning views and walks from the door then you will love this cottage. You can indeed see for 'Miles Around'. The cottage is spotlessly clean, warm and has everything you need for a relaxing break. Matlock is a 5 minute drive away and is a really lovely town whose centre is a Victorian Park. It has more than its fair share of very good restaurants and cafes. Within a 20 minute drive there is Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Crich Tramway Museum, Matlock Bath, Carsington Waters, Ashbourne plus many more 'things to do'. Highly recommend!

Well equipped, comfortable, cosy, warm and welcoming cottage with wonderful views. With a comfortable double bed, it is perfect for a couple. A dressing room beyond the bedroom adds useful space. That the bathroom is not adjacent to the bedroom gives welcome privacy. Excellent hot water, and deep bath. Delightful and helpful owners. I very much hope to stay again.

No Better Spot To Be Found

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Miles Around, and we couldn't have been happier to be back!

As usual, Jane and Michael were wonderful hosts providing loads of useful leaflets within the cottage in case we were stuck for things to do, and starting us off with some milk and teabags, which were much needed after a long drive up!

The cottage itself was clean and tidy, and the welcoming atmosphere makes you feel perfectly able to curl up on the comfy sofas and veg out after a long day exploring.

Location wise it is ideal for anyone looking for a Peak District break, with everything within easy access from towns, supermarkets or tourist spots; and waking up to views across Matlock and the rolling hills, really does give you a sense of peace and quiet, without the isolation.

We couldn't recommend this place more from the homey feel, to the great location. No doubt we'll be back again!

About the Area.

Once famed for its hydros and spa treatments, Matlock is now a bustling town surrounded by the spectacular countryside of the Derbyshire Dales. Overlooked by the imposing Smedleys Hydro (now the offices of Derbyshire County Council) and Riber Castle, the town owes much its status to John Smedley who built both these grand edifices, plus several more. The River Derwent and the A6 road both run through the middle of the town, which centres on Crown Square. Matlock boasts an award-winning park - Hall Leys Park, complete with boating lake, riverside paths, tennis courts and skateboard park. It is the first of five beautifully restored public parks stretching along the River Derwent to Matlock Bath. The hillsides around afford some superb viewpoints and superb countryside is literally on the doorstep. With a good range of shops and restaurants plus excellent bus and rail links (on the Derwent Valley train line from Derby) this is an ideal base for exploring the area. Peak Rail runs heritage steam and diesel trains from Matlock station and there is a superb new Leisure Centre on the edge of the town. Don't miss the magical Matlock Bath Illuminations which take place a little further along the river at weekends during September and October.
