    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Matchbox appeals to all ages and can provide the perfect holiday for the active and also for those looking for a quiet retreat.

    Matchbox is large enough for 4 people , with separate dining and living rooms, gardens front and rear. The cottage is ideally situated close enough (a few hundred metres!) to the town to wander to, but located at the edge of some of the best walks in the Peaks.

    Featured in Good Homes magazine, Matchbox has been recently redecorated and refurbished throughout with Farrow and Ball paints, new furniture and curtains creating a warm and welcoming feel. The wealth of charming features – from the original butcher's block and Belfast sink in the kitchen, the apothecary chest in the dining room, roll-top bath, wood-burner, and beams throughout – help to create the p...

Lovely location, lovely building, but a few finishing touches spoiled the overall experience. Please fix the front door - It desperately needs re-decorating and looks awful. The keep also needs to be properly fixed - I did an improvised repair, but it offers no security. The curtains in the small bedroom have pins holding the hem up - not ideal... more

Management response:

Thanks for your feedback; We work hard to keep Matchbox in top condition, whilst still keeping the 'old-cottage' charm. The front door...as you can imagine, we and the local planners are reluctant for anything other than a period wooden front door to be fitted, and we've got a craftsman carpenter making a replacement front door for us. This should be... more
