Derwent House

Self Catering

The perfect place for a family or friends gathering, anniversary or birthday celebration. Derwent House is a six-bedroom, luxury self-catering accommodation located deep in the heart of Derbyshire. A traditional eighteenth-century Georgian building, Derwent House has many of its original features, with the oak-beamed ceilings and quarry tile floorings steeped in history. The house has, however, been renovated to offer high standards of modern living and creature comforts, a big favourite among clientèle being a spacious dining area for dinner parties and precious family moments.

What is the capacity for Derwent House?

Derwent House Matlock, provides accommodation for up to 12 people within beautifully designed, listed Georgian Grade II, self-catering house with double-front bay windows. The house has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms set over three floors, with many of the original characteristics still on show, making it an perfect place for groups.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Matlock area?

There is a great deal to keep the whole family busy, as Derwent House is the perfect location to explore the Peak District National Park, including the Matlock Trail, whilst also acting as a base for those wanting to explore the historical town of Matlock and its culture.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

In Matlock you will find many interesting places for lunch, just a short walk from Glendon. There is a wide variety of vegetarian dishes at the Green Way café. The  Cool River Café is the perfect spot for lunch. Zinc, which serves beautiful cakes and has a small welcoming garden behind it, is a more recent addition to the coffee scene, with a range of cards and gifts to buy. There are also cafes in many of the Dale Road's antique and vintage stores. And Hall Leys Park is a great location for a picnic outdoors when the sun is shining. Grab a sandwich or other light meal from across the street at Mrs. Winkles and enjoy it in the beautiful park.

Great place for couples or families. Derwent House is such a smashing house and it feels like home as soon as you walk in. It's immaculately clean, all the rooms have lovely furniture and the equipment in the massive kitchen is top notch. There's even tin foil/cling film /tea/coffee/herbs/spices/...

Birthday celebration Perfect house for a gathering of friends to celebrate my 50th year. Ideal location and setting, the web pictures don’t do it justice. Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting the Peak District. Even storm Dennis didn’t dampen things!
