Tranquil rolling countryside surrounds this farmhouse which has the advantage of ten en-suite bedrooms and a large sun room.

High in the hamlet of Riber in the shadow of the castle just outside Matlock and surrounded by tranquil rolling countryside, The Stables is situated in the grounds of the privately-owned Riber Hall. This destination is offered for adults and children over twelve years old, and is inclusive of a beautiful garden with heated furnished terrace. There are ten en-suite bedrooms of 17 to 40 square metres, equipped with Sony LCD TVs, dining areas and micro kitchens with combination microwave oven, fridge, kettle/toaster and Wedgwood china. For days out there is plenty to do and see. In the neighbouring village of Holloway is the former home of Florence Nightingale whilst down in the Derwent Valley at Cromford, the World Heritage Site boasts the world’s first water-powered cotton-spinning factories, built by Sir Richard Arkwright and Jedediah Strutt. Just under four miles is the delightful town of Matlock Bath boasting smart riverside cafés and bars slotted in between more traditional pubs, restaurants, tea shops, ice-cream parlours and plenty of restaurants. Here visitors can also sample a ride to The Heights of Abraham by cable car and admire the views of ‘Little Switzerland’ as Byron once described this area. For the more inquisitive visit the Mining Museum for a fascinating look into the area’s past. Shop 2 miles, pub 11/2 miles.

    We were in room one, there was no hot water in the sink at all, no extraction to remove steam or smells and the mirror on the door rattled continuously when anyone moved around upstairs. The stairs down to the conservatory were unlit and of varying size and pitch which we felt was dangerous. The conservatory was either too cold or too hot if the sun came out. Small complaints from all our party amounted together to the conclusion that this property is in need of a full refurbishment and the overall value for money was poor. It was however clean and as well kept as could be expected from a tired old building.

    Lovely place. Parts of it need a bit of TLC, but that's a quibble. Beautiful setting, although a steep hill to slog up from the town. We had a great time, and I would recommend it for an extended family gathering like ours.

    We rented this place for a Writing Retreat with 8 PhD students and 3 supervisors, and it was a great venue to write, relax, and enjoy the fantastic surroundings.

    We booked the Stables at Riber Hall for exclusive hire in December. The bedrooms were mostly clean, warm and comfortable, although 2 rooms had radiators that would not heat the room properly and one or two of the lights were broken or missing. However, the kitchen and conservatory were not worth the 4 star rating claimed by the letting agents. The kitchen was cold (radiator not working properly), the conservatory roof leaked (as did the ground floor bedroom corridor) and the main source of heat was a woodburner, which was not provided with matches to light it with, or enough fuel to last the three nights it was booked for. The kitchen decor is, quite frankly, bizare, with three walls lined with padded black vinyl. This made for a very gloomy dining experience, especially when everyone was seated for dinner and the lights turned off because they were wired to a timeswitch! A timeswitch also controls the conservatory lights and sockets, which means that both the TV and music switch off unless someone stands up and waves their arms at regular intervals. This is not acceptable for 4 star accomodation. There are no toilets in the conservatory/kitchen area so everyone had to go back to their rooms in the rain to use the toilet. The steps mentioned on the website could be hazardous in icy conditions. Finally, one of my guests found a mouse in the kitchen late one night. Since the kitchen is not provided with empty cupboard space for food storage this is again unacceptable for a 4 star property. That said, the property would be far more pleasant in the summer.
