The Old Workshop description

In the heart of Derbyshire on a working farm high above the bustling town of Matlock and close to the medieval hamlet of Riber. These two holiday cottages The Old Dairy (ref RGGJ) is a single level barn conversion close to the owners’ 16th century farmhouse, and The Old Workshop (ref RHHB) has contemporary comforts and elegant touches to make your stay truly memorable. Enjoy the beauty of its natural stone walls and original chunky beams throughout this stunning property. Both boast dramatic panoramic views across the surrounding Derbyshire countryside. Although it is set in a truly rural environment, the popular Peak District town of Matlock with its extensive range of country style shops, pubs and restaurants, is just one mile away.
A host of attractions is available on the doorstep including the walk from Matlock to Riber, which offers spectacular scenery from the viewpoint at the front of the famous Riber Castle. Further magnificent views can be enjoyed from the cable car at neighbouring Matlock Bath, 3 miles, which is also home to stunning riverside gardens, a theme park for the young ones and at the right time of year, superb illuminations. The magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can be reached in around 30 minutes, as can the popular market town of Bakewell. Buxton with its diverse architecture and famous opera house can be reached in around 40 minutes and the beautiful Hope Valley scenery and honeypot village of Castleton with its show caves, is around an hour away. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
