We stayed at the flat in May 2014. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It was only a short walk into the centre of Matlock through a very pleasant park. The provision of milk and biscuits on our arrival was a welcome touch. The flat is part of an old building converted into flats and is accessed via a set of external stairs. The flats have a dedicated car park. Although there is no car park for the sole use of this flat we had no trouble getting parked. This is a good base to explore the southern Peak District. There are good bus connections which we used to visit Bakewell and Buxton (the advantages of an OAP bus pass).
The description does say that it sleeps 4 but the second bedroom is small and may be quite cramped for more than one. This didn't affect us as we did not use the second bedroom. Would recommend.
“A lovely family retreat; excellent facilities and atmosphere”

We needed at short notice somewhere here to stay for the weekend for a wedding. We have a 4 year old and a baby, who at the time was 7 months old.
We were unsure of this place because the photos suggested the apartments were a bit built up and the flat weeny. Neither turned out to be true at all. It was spacious, tastefully done with excellent facilities and lovely views. Both boys were very settled here and there was a very warm welcome. We would definitely return

Location was excellent for exploring the peak district and if that was not enough, the accommodation was ideal- spacious and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone- if fact we have already done so!

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment - it was in beautiful condition with modern furnishings and everything you could need! Matlock is a great location for reaching many of the attractions of the Peak District including Chatsworth and Dove Dale.

The location was excellent for just strolling through the park along the river right into the centre of Matlock and having private parking at your front door you could explore the Peak district and always know that you could get parked when you returned to base

We loved the open plan living / dining / kitchen area. It is very spacious and comfortabe with all the comforts of home.
The location is perfect for us as we have friends and relatives in the area and its a lovely stroll into Matlock through the park.
The issues we had were the noise from the traffic outside, the old lead windows are beautiful but could do with double glazing and the air vents on the walls in the bedrooms made a lot of noise too. Apart from that we loved it and would definitely stay again.
