Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Matlock

At the edge of the beautiful Peak District lies Matlock, surrounded by stunning countryside in which some delightful stone holiday cottages can be found. There are plenty of walks allowing you to appreciate this amazing area first-hand, such as through Black Rocks Country Park, famous for the gritstone outcrop, which gives this magnificent park its name. Or step away from the great outdoors and see what Matlock offers indoors.

Chatsworth House, one of Britain's most famous historic estates, is a highly recommended destination. Its outstanding architecture is enough to leave you speechless as you stroll around. Explore the intricate rooms and unique designs, take a walk around the beautiful grounds, lose yourself in the maze and marvel at the water feature.
