Standing on the sunny patio area of this beautiful house, you can see for miles and miles over the wonderful sights of Matlock and beyond.
This detached property offers comfortable accommodation for family and friends just ¼ mile from the centre of Matlock. It commands stunning panoramic views over the Derwent Valley, taking in High Tor gorge and Riber Castle. Whilst the area is renowned for excellent walks and mountain biking, the Matlock area is also very popular with people who enjoy more thrilling outdoor pursuits, and there are opportunities locally for canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing, and caving.
Built along the River Derwent and just 2 miles from the property, Matlock Bath is one of the most scenic villages which inspired poet laureate Sir John Betjeman to write a poem by the same name. Matlock Bath’s attractions include an aquarium, Gullivers Kingdom theme park, and most famously, the Heights of Abraham with its cable cars, caverns, and magnificent views. Other places of interest within easy driving distance include Chatsworth House and Gardens, Haddon Hall, Bakewell with its famous pudding shop, Crich Tramway Museum, Cromford World Heritage Site, and Carsington Water with its visitor centre.
Matlock has a wide range of shops, together with many pubs in and around the area serving food. There is also a cocktail bar, Indian and Italian restaurants, and a well-reputed ’fine dining’ restaurant. Penrhos is an excellent base from which to explore the Peak District National Park which is steeped in fascinating history and culture. Golf and fishing can also be found nearby.
