Boasting dramatic panoramic views, this stunning barn conversion is situated in a rural location, yet only a short distance to Matlock.

In a stunning elevated position above Matlock, in the heart of Derbyshire and situated on a working farm, these holiday cottages (refs RGGJ, RHHB and UKC1593) enjoy stunning panoramic views across the surrounding Derbyshire countryside. The Old Dairy (ref RGGJ) is a single level barn conversion close to the owners’ 16th century farmhouse. The Old Workshop (ref RHHB) has contemporary comforts and elegant touches to make your stay truly memorable, and The Old Parlour (ref UKC1593) is a barn conversion that has been renovated to provide guests with luxurious accommodation.

Although they are set in a truly rural environment, the popular Peak District town of Matlock with its extensive range of country style shops, pubs and restaurants, is just 1 mile away.

A host of attractions are available on the doorstep, including the walk from Matlock to Riber, which offers spectacular scenery from the viewpoint at the front of the famous Riber Castle. Further magnificent views can be enjoyed from the cable car at neighbouring Matlock Bath, 3 miles, which is also home to stunning riverside gardens, a theme park for the young ones and at the right time of year, superb illuminations. The fabulous historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can be reached in around 30 minutes’, as can the popular market town of Bakewell. Buxton with its diverse architecture and famous opera house can be reached in around 40 minutes’ and the beautiful Hope Valley scenery and honeypot village of Castleton with its show caves, is around an hour away. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We had a fantastic stay at the Old Diary. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped, very comfortable. It's in a great area with lovely walks from the doorstep. We loved the lemon drizzle cake too! It was a shame the weekend went so quickly!

    We received a warm welcome and the cottage was very comfortable. Our only disappointment was that I had failed to realise that the lawned area was not accessible from the cottage but was just across the lane. This was a disappointment for us because our dog now has wheels and needs a great deal of assistance, so our stay would have been easier with direct access to grass. However in terms of location, it was lovely and rural and yet only a few minutes' drive into Matlock. We were staying in order to visit Chatsworth and Haddon which were both just 30 minutes' drive away, so that worked well.

    This is our third time at this cottage its also clean and very comfortable. We are always made welcome and there's always cake and wine which is very nice. Also most of the pubs in the area let you take your dog which is a plus point.

    Had a lovely week based at The Old Dairy. Was made to feel very welcome by our hosts who were there if we needed them but non intrusive. Cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed and more. A great base from which to explore the surrounding area.
