Converted lead miners cottage overlooking Matlock Bath

Family-friendly cottage in Matlock
3 bedroom end terrace cottage, built in the early 1800s, comprising 1 double bedroom, one twin/double and a single. One bathroom with shower, bath and WC and separate WC. Lounge and kitchen / diner downstairs. There is a patio area outside the front of the property, an enclosed kitchen courtyard to the side with BBQ and chiminea. There is also a decking area above the property to the rear with fantastic views of the Derwent Valley and Riber Castle.
Free internet provided and there are plenty of board games and DVDs in the lounge. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, tassimo coffee machine and washer dryer. Complementary tea and coffee provided as well as all bed linen and towels.
The property is situated on the hillside below the Heights of Abraham and within easy walking distance of Gullivers Kingdom. Access to the cottage is via a steep footpath and no road runs directly past the cottage. You can drive to within 50m or so to drop off your luggage. There is a private parking space and small garage provided at Temple Mine 200m away but no permanent parking available at the cottage itself.
A tranquil retreat for those looking to relax and get away from it all, and a great location for walkers, with a footpath starting right outside the cottage and leading to Heights of Abraham, Matlock or Cromford and beyond.
Due to its location the cottage is not really suitable for anyone with reduced mobility due to the steep footpath leading to the cottage or for under 4s due to steep staircase and no stair gates.
Available to rent from a minimum of 3 nights.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and hairdryers. This Matlock cottage provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

Lovely cottage, central for all amenities.

matlock illuminations
This cottage although up quite a steep cobbled hill was perfectly situated for the matlock illuminations, just a 5 - 10 min walk from Derwent River where the boats set off from and the cottage was even the perfect viewing point for the fireworks! the cottage itself was beautiful and fully equipped with everything you could possibly think of! wouldn't think twice about staying again!
Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2021

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful cosy cottage with great views
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful cottage. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the river, town and surrounding hills was fab! It was nice to be out of it all but still see what was going on! The cottage is ingeniously designed using every bit of space really well. It has everything you could possibly need. The beds are very comfy as is the sitting room. We loved all the special touches and thoughtfulness of the owners. They were also great at communicating. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with mobility issues due to the steep access to the cottage. For anyone else, it is a lovely find!
