Find cottages in MatlockVisit Matlock

The former spa town of Matlock lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park by the River Derwent and has easy access to outdoor activities and visitor attractions.

Situated in the Derbyshire countryside the historic town of Matlock is renowned for its industrial heritage sites. The town lies alongside the River Derwent and just downriver of the town, enclosed by limestone cliffs, is the popular tourist destination of Matlock Bath.

Taking a cottage in and around Matlock provides the perfect base for exploring the many attractions in the area such as the Heights of Abraham, Gulliver's Kingdom and Lea Gardens. For fun family days out, head to the Matlock Farm Park or Crich Tramway Village, a restored village that contains the Crich Tramway Museum, tram rides and woodland walks.

The surrounding countryside is the perfect place to catch your breath, while admiring the stunning views that surrounds you, and if you like your walks a little more challenging, then try the Matlock Bath circuit. This short circuit offers lots of interesting sights along the way as well as a few uphill climbs. But you'll also find lots of flat walks in and around the town, including riverside walks and strolls around the excellent shopping emporiums, where you can pick up some unique souvenirs and gifts.

"Spacious stone cottages with fine facilities, in a beautiful, tranquil woodland setting..."

Set in the Darwin Forest on the edge of the Peak District National Park, this group of holiday cottages enjoys an ideal location from which to enjoy the area’s great natural beauty. Built in traditional Derbyshire stone to blend effortlessly into their surroundings, they are set around the lake and surrounded by mixed woodland, an ideal habitat for a rich variety of wildlife. The cottages are modern and spacious, with comfortably furnished living rooms, several enjoying views over the lake. A central courtyard area creates a focal point, and each cottage has its own patio, as well as shared use of the nine acres of beautiful wooded grounds which include an enclosed, elevated woodland walk around the lake. An old stone building has been dismantled and then erected in the grounds and is used for conferences and also as a fitness/weight loss venue (these facilities can be booked in advance with the management).
This peaceful spot is the perfect stopping off point for walking and cycling amid superb countryside, and a trekking centre just around the corner provides plenty of opportunity to explore on horseback. For the more adventurous, a whole host of outdoor pursuits is available nearby, including sailing, wind-surfing and canoeing on Carsington Reservoir, 13 miles away, while Derbyshire’s gritstone edges and deep caverns attract rock climbing and pot-holing enthusiasts.
The popular Derbyshire Dales town of Matlock is only 4 miles away, with a good choice of pubs, restaurants and shops. Among the attractions here are the Peak Rail steam trains, the Heights of Abraham pleasure grounds, reached by a cable car across the gorge, dramatic show caverns and Gulliver’s Kingdom.

A short drive away is the splendid Chatsworth House with its fine collections of paintings and furniture, and Haddon Hall in the beautiful Wye Valley. Village shop and local pub 2 miles.
Darwin Lake is the perfect place to get away from it all amid beautiful surroundings, and to enjoy the many attractions that make this region so popular.
