“Excellent house for a large party”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed here for a long weekend and rented the whole house with 6 other couples - 6 of our party were French and they really loved the house. The rooms are all very spacious including all the bedrooms complete with en-suites. All the rooms had lovely views over the Derbyshire countryside. The kitchen was very well equipped as you would expect from a B @ B and it was very easy to prepare our meals there. David and Marylyn were very helpful with ideas for walks and places to eat etc. Our only very small gripe were the towels. It would be nice to have larger fluffier towels but it wasn't a big problem .its unusual to find a house for 18 adults with ensuites so this would be ideal for large family or friends gatherings. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area

“Excellent Venue for a Family Weekend”
Reviewed 13 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Just got back from a family weekend at Robertswood House and all I can say is it is superb for a family or friends "get-together".
When looking for a venue for 18 adults, there are very few available and even fewer with all en-suite facilities. From making initial contact, David and Marylyn were very friendly and efficient.
The rooms are all en-suite and a big size. The kitchen has everything and the dining room very large. We made full use of the bar/lounge area and it made for a really good atmosphere.
The house is within waking distance of the Sycamore Inn and isn't too far from Matlock town centre.
All in all, an excellent venue with everything you need for a family weekend.

“Delightful Country House experience.”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Great for a family of all ages. All 16 of us enjoyed it so much we booked again for next Easter before we left. The house was very cosy and comfortable despite the unseasonably cold weather.

“First Class”
Reviewed 21 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

I was lucky enough to stay at Robertswood House at the beginning of March 2013 for a couple of nights with a group of 9 friends. David and his wife couldn't do enough to help us settle in and the place was immaculate. 9 large, clean and bright bedrooms, with a large kitchen, dinning room and a large lounge that has been converted into a bar and snug at one end. The only possible issue I could sight was the wifi, which was patchy for some of my friends with a very weak signal, but I managed to get a good signal so can't personally fault it. I would highly recommend staying at Robertswood House if you're a group looking for a large, very clean and well presented self catering accommodation.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We (a large group of friends) booked Robertswood for a self catering New Year's break and we were not disappointed. The owners kept in regular contact before our stay and were happy to help with stocking the bar (yes the bar) with some beer and ale but left us to do the rest of the catering. When we arrived there really was a wow factor as the photographs do not do the place justice. The house is very well furnished in a style that suits the property and the layout of the bedrooms is ideal for couples with kids (we put the kids on the top floor where they wouldn't be disturbed). The lounge and bar area is ideal for a bit of a party and the novelty of pouring our own drinks did not wear off. The kitchen is large and very well equipped, we enjoyed cooking some lovely meals and sitting down in the dining room for a NYD roast dinner. The owners left us to it and we left the place as we found it, just how it should be. I would highly recommend for a group of friends and family. I hear the B&B option is pretty good too!

“Excellent house for a group of all ages”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed here (9 adults, 8 children) for a weekend. While we have stayed in more modern properties, Robertswood had everything we needed, coupled with a fantastic location (short walk/drive into Matlock). Also with so many young children, we were less anxious about damage to ornaments and paintwork than we have in other properties. I realise this makes it sound poorly decorated- this is not the case, it is just a more homely place. The bedrooms were lovely with fantastic views.
There were very few house rules, and we felt very welcome.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I stayed with friends over the Christmas period and had a really fabulous time. As soon as you walked through the door at Robertswood you felt the warmth and atmosphere of this lovely house. You immediately felt comfortable and at home, everything was just perfect. The very well equipped kitchen was great for cooking Christmas dinner; we comfortably seated 14 around the table in the dining room. The lounge - with bar - was a great place to socialise. The bedrooms were clean and spacious, with wonderful views, and all being en -suite was a dream.

David and Marilyn were great, so friendly and welcoming… Their one stipulation was, that each time we went upstairs we had to shake hands with Frosty The Snowman, who was perched at the bottom, he would then sing Frost the Snowman (of course) Well I have to admit, he did get gagged and kidnapped one day, but the search party soon rescued him and put him back in his rightful place! Great fun :-) We even had a lovely Christmas tree and decorations around the fireplace.

I would most definitely recommend Robertswood, and we will certainly go back there again.

Thank you David and Marilyn
