A great value B & B run by a lovely very friendly couple, Janet & John, who couldn’t be more helpful. We enjoyed a very pleasant sunny room with good views over the local hills. It was not the largest but was comfortable & more than adequate for our needs. The bathroom had good quality fittings with an excellent power shower. All rooms were impeccably decorated. Janet & John served a very good individually cooked breakfast with fresh fruit salad, good coffee & attentive service that would put many expensive hotels to shame. Car parking was not a problem as there was plenty of space available for all the guests.
The only negative comment I can think to make and it’s a very small one is that the property is about three quarters of a mile from town. It’s quite a pleasant walk which we enjoyed but it might not suite all particularly as it was uphill on the way home. The advantage of this is that you get to enjoy a peaceful setting and it really was not a hard walk.
Matlock is a good base for exploring the Derbyshire Dales and offers plenty of good hostelries for the evening. I have no hesitation in recommending this B & B.

Great, just great. Really pleasant and friendly. Will do anything to make your stay perfect and homely. Very welcoming and an very nice place to stay. Comfortable beds and great en suites. Breakfast was lovely. Not to much and not to little, just the right size to get the day started.

Stayed for 2 nights and can't fault a thing room was spotless, comfortable , huge bed, amazing shower and gorgeous breakfast. John and Janet were lovely welcoming hosts, with great knowledge of the area and what to see and visit and where to eat. Indian was delicious. We recommend this B&B to all, Just park up near to town centre and attractions.

Room Tip: we upgraded for the larger ground floor room with amazing wetroom will do that again, but I'm su...

Both Janet and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. The premier room is proving very popular especially the wet room shower. As you mentioned we are only a short walk to the town center and attractions and we do have a very large private car park.
Thank you for writing this lovely review.

We stayed three nights with John and Janet and were extremely impressed by both the quality of the accommodation and the warm friendly reception and care by the owners. Our room (6) was on the ground floor and was very well furnished with comfortable "queen" bed, large wall-mounted TV and a wet room shower/toilet suite. Free WiFI access was provided which was useful to research the area, book visits etc. From the moment of arrival the owners were both friendly and helpful - and this was consistent throughout our stay without being obtrusive. Located just to the south of Buxton, Castle Green afforded easy access to all centres and attractions of the Peak District. Located at the end of a quiet private drive with plenty of parking space, it was tranquil and private whilst being within easy walking distance of Matlock town centre with its variety of shops, restaurants and inns etc. Breakfasts were freshly prepared and individually prepared to choice. For evening meals, can recommend the Red Lion a short walk away with good quality food at a reasonable price (carvery on Sundays). We have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Castle Green to anyone seeking good quality and friendly accommodation within striking distance of all parts of the Peak District. We hope to return there again at some point in the future. Thank you John and Janet for a most enjoyable stay and all your care and attention.

Room Tip: Can recommend the premier double room which is worth the slight extra cost - particularly suitable f...

We stayed 2nights in Room 2 in this immaculate B & B. very comfy bed and the shower was hot and powerful. Big screen tv on wall opposite bed. Breakfast is fresh fruit, cereals, cooked English or whatever you wish served by a very pleasant young lady.
John can tell you places of interest to visit and where locally to eat. We recommend the Red Lion which is 5 mins walk down the hill.
Chatsworth House is definitely worth a visit as is their Garden Centre and Farm Shop.
We will definitely be going back to Castle Green B &B as there seems so much to do round Matlock and we didn't have long enough there.
Hope John &Janet will still be there on our next visit. Well done for running sure a lovely place.

Room Tip: I imagine all the rooms are similar as this is a new build but the downstairs bedroom looked like a...

just fabulous, we enjoyed two nights with John and Janet and we couldn't have been made more welcome. A superb room with a super outlook, lovely quiet gardens and excellent places close by to eat, including a top class Indian restaurant which has to be experienced to be believed. Superb, freshly cooked breakfast with top notch ingredients, Hazel even got Marmite soldiers to go with her boiled egg, how's that for going above and beyond? We've already booked our next stay and that won't be our last. Try this one you won't be disappointed.
