What a fantastic couple of days! Everything about our stay was brilliant and the views over the valley to Heights of Abraham were amazing.
Our hosts Sue and John were lovely and helpful. We'd arrived feeling hot and bothered and immediately were given tea/coffee and biscuits on the patio. We'd had enough driving for that day but the nearest pub (The White Lion) for an evening meal was closed on Mondays so we ordered takeaway pizza and had that on the patio too! The next evening we did eat at the pub and that didn't disappoint.
Our room was lovely, the bed very comfortable and there was a great shower in the beautiful en-suite.
Breakfasts were wonderful with everything made to order. The fresh fruit was particularly welcome after a week of full English breakfasts elsewhere - although full English was available here too.
Looking forward to returning next summer.
If walking is an issue and you don't want to drive then the steep hill could be a problem. We walked down into Matlock, took the cable car up to the Heights of Abraham then 5 hours later walked back and it was tough but worth it for those fantastic views!
