Derwent House is a really handsome Georgian house on the edge of the Starkholmes conservation area in the lovely old spa town of Matlock. The house has been carefully renovated to retain a host of original features but with beautifully furnished and decorated accommodation providing lots of space with its lounge, snug, dining room, dining kitchen, six bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Many holidaymakers are happy just to laze about the house or wander around Knowleston Gardens or neighbouring Hall Leys Park. But what about a minute's stroll to Matlock Green for your morning paper, a short walk into town to the shops and Arc leisure centre, or just step out to the Red Lion or Duke William pubs for an evening drink. Matlock Green's fish and chips are pretty good as well!
Matlock is in the centre of Derbyshire's fantastic attractions ranging from Chatsworth House and Peak Rail's steam trains to Crich's tramway museum and the Heights of Abraham cable cars. At the end of your day have a lovely meal in one of the town's restaurants but save the wonderful Stones bistro for your last night's celebrations - you will need to book well in advance!
