An Authentic Experience

We know there are lots of places to stay in Matlock. Chain hotels can be great, but a privately owned B&B is different. We aim to provide the quality and standard of an excellent boutique Matlock hotel but with the authentic, attentive experience of a traditional B&B, in a delightful listed Victorian building.

A Great Breakfast

We have an extensive breakfast menu, cooked fresh- to-order, with a wide choice of vegetarian options as well as our traditional Derbyshire breakfast. We cater for dietary requests including gluten-free, sourcing local produce from the freshest ingredients, supporting our local suppliers.

We are 500 yards from Matlock train station, cyclists can carry bikes free of charge on East Midlands Trains, which connects into to the wider rail network, so great for a few days away.

All are within easy walking distance of Glendon. Give us a call and we will be happy to help with your travel arrangements.
