Description

This detached property offers comfortable accommodation for family and friends just ¼ mile from the centre of Matlock. It commands stunning panoramic views over the Derwent Valley, taking in High Tor gorge and Riber Castle. Whilst the area is renowned for excellent walks and mountain biking, the Matlock area is also very popular with people who enjoy more thrilling outdoor pursuits, and there are opportunities locally for canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing, and caving.

Built along the River Derwent and just 2 miles from the property, Matlock Bath is one of the most scenic villages which inspired poet laureate Sir John Betjeman to write a poem by the same name. Matlock Bath’s attractions include an aquarium, Gullivers Kingdom theme park, and most famously, the Heights of Abraham with its cable cars, caverns, and magnificent views. Other places of interest within easy driving distance include Chatsworth House and Gardens, Haddon Hall, Bakewell with its famous pudding shop, Crich Tramway Museum, Cromford World Heritage Site, and Carsington Water with its visitor centre.

Matlock has a wide range of shops, together with many pubs in and around the area serving food. There is also a cocktail bar, Indian and Italian restaurants, and a well-reputed ’fine dining’ restaurant. Penrhos is an excellent base from which to explore the Peak District National Park which is steeped in fascinating history and culture. Golf and fishing can also be found nearby. Shop and pub serving food ¼ mile, restaurant ½ mile.

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.
