Description

From the spacious living room with high ceilings and quality furnishings, to the well-equipped kitchen/dining room with all the mod-cons you could need, this duplex apartment is perfect for couples and families. Outside you will find an enclosed garden with wonderful views over the Matlock hills, the Grade II listed Riber Castle and beyond. Who could wish for a better place to spend your holiday on the edge of the Peak District National Park?
Due to Brooklands’ fantastic location just 380 yards from the town centre, you have everything you could want on your doorstep, from cosy coffee shops to pubs and restaurants. The popular Peak District town of Matlock together with its neighbour Matlock Bath, have been attracting visitors to the area since the famous spa was developed by John Smedley in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the Derwent River, Matlock offers something for everyone, there’s a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Why not take the cable car in Matlock Bath and enjoy the magnificent views down the gorge up to the heights of Abraham, a great place to explore with its show caves, nature trail, water garden and owl maze?
South of the town is the start of the High Peak cycle trail, whilst a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. The market town of Bakewell is easily reached to sample the famous Bakewell pudding, and let’s not forget Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Fishing and golf available nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Downriver lies Matlock Bath. This historic village is set in a steep-sided limestone gorge with whitewashed cottages perched along the hill side. Nearer the river a more `touristy' atmosphere prevails with its many attractions from museums and cafes to souvenir shops. On the western side of the gorge is the Heights of Abraham which is popular with visitors due to its superb views and amenities, including restaurant, picnic area and caf�. A cable car can be taken to the top from Matlock Bath railway station.

Between Matlock and Matlock Bath is High Tor, a broad limestone cliff rising some 400 feet above the River Derwent. Around High Tor there is a network of paths suitable for exploring the area and from which to experience the spectacular views. In the grounds below there are refreshment facilities, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks and two caverns.

Carsington Water is ahuge draw for outdoor enthusiastswith outdoor activities including walking, cycling, fly fishing, birdwatching, sailing, canoeing, and windsurfing all available.

Fly fishing is available from the bank and from boats that can be hired from the Fishing Lodge. There is plentiful car parking and for young children there is a children's playground.

To the south is the market town of Wirksworth, which is one of the oldest towns in the area, with a central marketplace in which markets have been held since the reign of Edward I. Here visitors will find many fine old buildings of great character including a magnificent Jacobean house known as Babington House. The town is now a small bustling and thriving local centre with a selection of shops and pubs.
