Stanley House description

Holiday home
The Lillies is a semi-detached house in Darley Dales near Matlock. The house has five bedrooms and three bathrooms over the first and second floors, offering a variety of different sleeping arrangements. There is a ground floor cloakroom, a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with gas fire and doors to the garden. The garden has a patio and lawn, along with furniture and some lovely countryside views. The Lillies is a great base for touring the Peaks, being within very easy reach of Matlock, Bakewell, Chatsworth House, great walking and cycling and spectacular scenery.

The Popular Peak District towns of Matlock and Matlock Bath have been attracting visitors to this incredibly picturesque area since the Spa was developed in the late 17th Century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent and offering a host of attractions such as Riber Castle, Gullivers Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum, these two lovely towns also provide a range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The Heights of Abraham park offers a great day out for families and includes such exciting activities as show-caves, nature trails, water gardens and the Owl Maze, as well as magnificent views down the gorge during the cable car trip. The beginning of the High Peak Cycle Trail lies just to the south of the town whilst the National Tramway Museum at Crich is also worth a visit.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

An excellent property in a great location, where local attractions are easily accessible. The Peak Rail steam railway is just 5 minutes walk away and the kids (and the adults!) had a great time getting the steam train into Matlock.

The house was finished to a very high standard, it was great for large groups but with a very homely feel.

The bed linen was lovely and bathrooms were out of this world! There was plenty of room for all of us to sit down for dinner at the table, the under floor heating downstairs is great.

The property was well maintained and had all the facilities needed to make our stay comfortable. In particular, the arrangement of the bedrooms had been well thought out and was perfect for three generations of our family to holiday together.

Not only would I recommend Stanley House to friends, but I will definitely be visiting again. The accommodation was beautiful, we couldn't have asked for a nicer house to stay in for the weekend. There are shops and pubs close by for those of you who want to venture out, and for those who want to stay in and cook (even for large groups), there is a large oven AND microwave oven. The owner was extremely polite and welcoming, especially meeting us late on the day of our check in as we couldn't get there until 10pm!

Great house. Very clean, nicely furnished and in a fabulous location for Matlock, Bakewell, and Chatsworth. The rooms are a very good size and the kitchen is excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a very warm, cosy, and well furnished house that easily accommodates 12. I would describe it as finished to a high spec - good value. The kitchen was well equipped and all the bedrooms and bathrooms were impressive.

A lovely property in a beautiful area!

The cottage was ideal for our stay - plenty of room for all 10 adults and 2 toddlers. We loved the bathrooms and the layout of the lounge meant the boys could watch the telly while the girls nattered at the other end! Good location for trips out to Chatsworth, Curbar Edge, Matlock and Bakewell. Everything was nicely finished and it was great having things like bed linen, towels and cleaning things provided, as well as well stocked kitchen cupboards with pots and pans etc. We appreciated the large telly, the internet access and good parking for all our cars. We had a brilliant stay!

Everything was perfect. There was plenty of room for a family of 12, including 2 children, 2 toddlers and 1 infant.

We loved Stanley House! We were there for my hen weekend and found the property to be plenty big enough for the 8 of us who stayed overnight and the 12 or so people who passed through visiting across the weekend. The big living space and kitchen diner were a particular highlight as at no point were my friends split between rooms, we could all comfortably hang out in one space. Have to say the showers were also particularly spectacular, the decor was clean and modern throughout and the pictures don't do Stanley House's homely warmth justice.
