An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Make your stay a memorable one at this luxury holiday property, which lies in a rural environment, yet still close to a host of visitor attractions.

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 arrived at the old parlour & were welcomed by Joyce. We were provided with a bottle of wine, tea, coffee, milk and an amazing homemade lemon drizzle cake. The old parlour is just gorgeous, furnished beautifully & very comfortable. Lovely hand soap, lotion, shampoo provided. Beautiful views from the garden (sadly not the accommodation due to velux windows). Would absolutely recommend the old parlour.

    Fabulous accommodation and a lovely host. The cottage is superbly equipped, the beds are comfy, bathrooms gorgeous and the whole cottage feels like a home from home. Highly recommend this place but it is a good walk down into Matlock and a steep route back, but there is ample parking in Matlock, so this was never an issue for us. Will definitely return again in the autumn
