High in the hamlet of Riber in the shadow of the castle just outside Matlock and surrounded by tranquil rolling countryside, The Stables is situated in the grounds of the privately-owned Riber Hall, and is inclusive of a beautiful garden with heated furnished terrace. There are ten en-suite bedrooms of 17 to 40 square metres, equipped with Sony LCD TVs, dining areas and micro kitchens with combination microwave oven, fridge, kettle/toaster and Wedgwood china. The communal kitchen/dining room and living area/conservatory, which is accessed via an uncovered walkway in the garden, provides the perfect place to get all your party together for dining, socialising and relaxing. For days out there is plenty to do and see. In the neighbouring village of Holloway is the former home of Florence Nightingale whilst down in the Derwent Valley at Cromford, the World Heritage Site boasts the world’s first water-powered cotton-spinning factories, built by Sir Richard Arkwright and Jedediah Strutt. Just under four miles is the delightful town of Matlock Bath boasting smart riverside cafés and bars slotted in between more traditional pubs, restaurants, tea shops, ice-cream parlours and plenty of restaurants. Here visitors can also sample a ride to The Heights of Abraham by cable car and admire the views of ‘Little Switzerland’ as Byron once described this area. For the more inquisitive visit the Mining Museum for a fascinating look into the area’s past. Shop 2 miles, pub 11/2 miles.

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. Situated in Asbourne and within easy reach of the Peak Districtit has a sailing club next door to the Visitor Centre and cycle hire. 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.
