    We had a great stay at the Old Dairy as a family weekend away with various ages present. It's a lovely house with amazing views and only a hop into the centre of Matlock and 20 min walk to Matlock Bath (or 2 min train ride!). The cottage is really comfortable and well-equipped. It's on quite a steep hill/lane with tight parking - but we managed to find free parking all wkd for 4 cars, so it was fine (we used the drive and garage and then parked the others on the lane). The only thing I might say would be a 2nd shower would be useful for a 4 bed cottage (although there were 3 loos). Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

    We had a lovely time at the old dairy over may bank holiday. The house was really lovely and clean. It looked well looked after and didn't have lots of random furniture (unlike some other rentals we have had). The owners left clear instructions for picking up the key and some chocolates which was a nice touch. The parking is a bit tricky to get into but it wouldn't put us off staying here again.

    The property was very nice and perfect for a base to where we needed to go. The only downside that we had was no wifi even though I brought bt trying hard to make sure that my 2 teenage daughters had the internet access.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: I am sorry that you were unable to access the BT wifi with fon service. We have now had a phone line connected to the property and have unlimited broadband free of charge.

    Excellent! We had a lovely welcome with a bottle of wine having had a very informative conversation with the owner over where to go, there were 7 adults in our party and plenty of room, we all slept well, cooking facilities were good and lovely roomy table to eat round and play games after. Plenty of walks in the surrounding area, would definitely rent again for a family get together.

    Having stayed here before we knew we were in for a treat. Again it was spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. We were 7 adults - a family get-together, from Essex, Oxfordshire, London and Harrogate . We had a lovely weekend, walking around Carsington reservoir, tea at Cromford, at Wheatcroft’s Wharf Café and visiting the shops in the mills. Saturday night -takeaway from Thailand No 1. Sainsbury's is close by for groceries. Views over Matlock from the house were lovely, day and night. Being so close to the centre meant anyone could pop out for an explore. The owners are extremely kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend this accommodation.

    Lovely house. Spent most of weekend in the house as the weather was bad. Plenty of space but with all facilities in Matlock on the doorstep. Comfortable beds.

    Everything was great, apart from the beds...they were quite hard and meant we were unable to sleep very well, plus the walls are very thin! We could hear each other in the next room, but that wasn't much of an issue. For those staying in future, if you have a mattress topper, would advise taking it and maybe some earplug's if you have a noisy family ;-) Everything else was spot on and the owners were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us to make sure it was all set up and ready for our stay.

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Old Dairy in November 2015. The house was wonderfully warm as the temperatures outside plummeted and snow fell. The bedrooms are a good size, with lots of space for bags and the open space living area on the first floor was great. There was a nice comfy sitting area with a TV, dining table and kitchen. The footstall contained several board games for evening entertainment, while the bookcase contained lots of great advice about the local area and tourist attractions. The house is ideally located in Matlock, with the rail station and Sainsbury’s supermarket only a quick walk away (5 minutes). If you don’t fancy cooking in the evening, there are lots of friendly pubs, restaurants and take-away places in town. You can leave the house, walk along the River Derwent and up to High Tor for great views which are typical of the Peak District within minutes, I recommend The Old Dairy.

    The cottage was dirty and didn't look as if it had been cleaned in a long time. The curtains in the small bedroom were hanging off the window and the clothes rail in the attic room was broken. The bathroom needed a good clean to remove the black from the sink and shower cubicle. The location wasn't good and was difficult to access as its on a very small road almost an alleyway with cars parked on one side. We certainly didn't enjoy our stay and will not be returning.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. We, the owners, clean the property ourselves each and every change over. Along with another cleaner we spend 2 1/2 -3 hours cleaning each time. I am sorry that this did not meet with your expectations. Some of the curtain hooks were missing in the small bedroom- thank you for drawing this to my attention, I can now replace them. I have examined the clothes rail in the attic bedroom and have not found it to be broken. I will monitor the rail and replace it if a defect does become apparent. The property is as stated in the property description, on a "narrow, 'access only' lane". The property is situated only 500 yards (approximately) from the town centre. As with most properties near town centres there is often on street parking. The property does have space for 1 vehicle in the garage and 1 on the drive. I am genuinely sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. It is a shame that I was not contacted at the time giving me the chance to alleviate some of these problems during your stay.

    This property is not suitable for the elderly or people with disabilities,due to the stairs. I'd also be wary if you have young children as there are steep stones steps to the garden and the handrail is unsafe! The cottage is pleasant enough and clean, nice views, Matlock is a lovely area, we had a welcome box of chocs on arrival but no tea coffee or milk had been provided for a well needed cuppa, we found the beds hard and the sofas were not ideal for comfort, there were no numbers on the oven controls, which made things difficult! it's a noisy place due to wooden floors in every room everything echos through the house, which may cause some people problems. Unfortunately due to myself using a walking stick for disabilities, (I did express my concerns to the owners and they felt sure I would cope) I found it difficult ( even with help) and by Monday had to admit defeat the stairs were too much for me due to the turn and narrowing of the stairs, couldn't get to the garden either due to stone steps and unsafe handrail, therefore I had no choice but to leave my Daughter took me home on the Tuesday, and then they all continued the holiday without me :(

    Good location for the town, however, the driveway and road to the cottage are tiny, making it very difficult for two cars to manoeuvre. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired...the oven was not clean and the symbols had long worn away. Whilst staying at the cottage, we found out that this had been complained about before. The general finish of the property doesn't really warrant the top asking is very basic and appears to be either cheap or old and why are there no toilet roll holders?! Bar one which is stuck to the shower. The garden is not secure for small or curious dogs. On the plus side, the property is a good size for 4 adults.

    The only thing that let the cottage down was the cooker ! [worn out dials and no timer]
