The Old Stables felt like home as soon as we walked in. The location was wonderful, the scenery was lovely and it was very quiet.

A beautifully decorated and equipped cottage in the stunning Peak District location. The walks from cottage seemed like they would be plentiful. The owner was very helpful and friendly and respected our privacy whilst being on hand if we needed anything.

Excellent accommodation - really relaxing. The Old Stables was ideal for 6 adults, a 7 year old and a baby. Plenty of space and seating in the lounge and dining room and a everyone had a nice bedroom. Great location - easy walk down to the village pubs. Very friendly owner.

Beautifully presented cottage, immaculately clean and felt really luxurious throughout with some interesting and unusual features. The kitchen in particular, was gorgeous. We had a really relaxing weekend and we were all sad to have to leave!

Stayed for a long weekend, a birthday treat for my wife from her sons and their partners. Tremendous conversion of the old stables and furnished to the highest taste. The owner, Lesley, made us most welcome and she told how she and her husband converted the main hall and the outbuildings. Matlock golf course five minutes drive away and the local pubs were a just a walk away. Terrific place to stay. Highly recommended

We stayed here in September 2015 and found the location to be really lovely with great gardens and a lovely farm shop/cafe just a short walk away. The house is beautiful, with everything you'd need and finished to a really high spec. The owner, Lesley, was really welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if back in the area.

This property is a new renovation in an old stone stable. It is very tastefully finished with great facilities, plenty of kitchen equipment for entertaining too. We stayed for a 60th birthday celebration with our extended family and it was perfect. The bathrooms have great water pressure and plenty of hot water for a group of 7. There are some really nice walks and Peak District villages/towns in easy reach.

This is a beautifully presented holiday cottage, large enough for the 6 of us. It was easy to get to most of the Peak District and attractions.
