Our house was built in 1847, is early Victorian, built in the Georgian style in the centre of the village of Matlock Bath which was developed as a spa. There are still some natural thermal springs and a petrifying well. There are four spacious en-suite rooms, three of which are family rooms. A cot is available. All rooms have access to wireless broadband, TV kettle etc. The house is situated immediately opposite the Victorian Jubilee bridge, which is a footbridge over the River Derwent. This bridge gives access to walks, an informal riverside park with childrens play area and attractive fountains and pools. There are walks up by the river and up the wooded hillside to extensive all-round views. Within walking distance are Gulliver's Kingdom (Childrens theme park), Cable Cars to Heights of Abraham, (where you can visit to old lead mines), the Museum and Aquarium with the petrifying well, the Mining Museum, and an assortment of restaurants and pubs with regular live music. Masson Mills (shopping village and museum in Arkwright's historic mill) is 10 minutes walk and there are many small, interesting shops both in Matlock Bath, and within nearby Matlock & Cromford.

Is this property disabled friendly? My husband uses a wheelchair but is not in it permanently.
Hello, thanks for the enquiry. Yes to a certain extent the room is disable friendly. It is on the ground floor with almost level access to the room. Once inside there's a double and single bed and usual facilities. It's en-suite with shower cubicle ( slight step into shower) and plenty of room although you would need to be out of the chair. If you click on the Travellor photos on out Trip advisor page the 3 rooms shown are not what we would have posted but do show the room in question.
