Glendon Bed and Breakfast in Matlock

Glendon is rated as one of the top Bed and Breakfast places to stay in Derbyshire, located in Matlock, next to Hall Leys park, beneath Saint Giles Church and a short walk to the restaurants, bars and shops of Matlock. Glendon Bed and Breakfast is an ideal alternative to an impersonal chain hotel in Matlock, with unique bedrooms in a picturesque Victorian property, built 1857. Book Glendon Bed and Breakfast and use it as a base to explore the Peak District for a short break, a quick weekend or a longer holiday. Take advantage of our new secure cycle storage and dedicated cycle racks for your self-guided cycling and mountain bike short breaks and holidays. We are 500 yards from Matlock train station, where bikes travel for free, so leave your cars and bike racks behind and come and tour Derbyshire and the Peak District from Glendon.

If you are visiting and have an electric vehicle, why not take advantage of electric vehicle charge point, available to all our guests at Glendon.
