    About this property

    Matlock 3.2 miles. This stone-built semi-detached cottage is situated on the peaceful Darwin Lake Holiday Village, three miles from the popular Peak District town of Matlock. Surrounded by 10-acres of woodland where guests are free to explore the footpaths, this is a first-class holiday home for couples, friends and families. Located a short distance from the lake, you enter the property into a small hallway. The open plan living area is spacious and light and has been beautifully-appointed throughout. The kitchen area has been furnished with high-quality amenities including a Smeg oven and hob, where delicious meals can be prepared and enjoyed around the dining table. The ground floor also has the first of the bedrooms, a well-appointed twin room which has the advantage of zip/link beds so that it can be made into a super king-size double on request. This bedroom also has an en-suite wet room and may be ideal for members of the family who find stairs difficult. The stairs lead up to two further super king-size double bedrooms, both of which have the flexibility of zip/link beds. These spacious bedrooms both have en-suites with the master having a TV as well as a bath. With all the rooms having their own private facilities there’ll be no queuing in the mornings! To the outside is a patio area for dining alfresco and guests can enjoy the shared open lawned areas surrounding the cottages and lake. The grounds offer plenty of opportunities for walking and wildlife spotting and an easy drive away is the whole of the Peak District National Park with its many quaint villages and walks for all abilities. Matlock, Matlock Bath and Bakewell are within easy reach, and a visit to Chatswoth House and Haddon Hall are well worth a visit. Why not have a cable car ride to the Heights of Abraham or enjoy a family day out at Gulliver’s Kingdom? You’ll be spoilt for choice from this well-located cottage.

    The popular Peak District town of Matlock is set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent. The town offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions, including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum.

    "It is extremely frustrating to find a listed property does not have a decent WiFi connection and no phone reception at all. It would be far better to make your prospective clients aware what the level of WiFi connection/phone signal strength is.......when we arrived at S78781 we found the WiFi sketchy to say the least and our mobile of no use at all. It’s fine to offer a telephone box in the neighbouring square, but when you run your own business that is of no use at all!!! Not impressed with this element of our holiday it made things very difficult for us. The cottage and area were a delight."

    "It was brilliant! Everything we needed as our grandson has leukemia and needed space and cleanliness. ...."
    Mrs Vickery
    "The staff were very helpful and friendly, the house was ideal for our needs and we were especially impressed with the barbecue.....we would definitely recommend Darwin Lake."
