“Brilliant as Usual”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

I stay here often for business use and like it so much I bought a bunch of friends down for the weekend and we took over the whole of the house!
Kate and Alan looked after us all with no fuss whatsoever and everybody agree that it was a fantastic place to stay - so much so that some of my friends will be rebooking for future visits!
We will be back!

What an antidote to many soulless hotel rooms. From arrival to departure, at Sheriff Lodge we were made to feel very welcome and at home. The rooms were well supplied, the beds were highly comfortable and the generous breakfast each day set us up perfectly to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside and attractions. We stayed for five nights, but wish we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I and our two daughters stayed here for two nights. We had the loft and the girls loved the thoughtful homey touches. The loft is a beautiful third floor bedroom with a wonderful view. The most amazing thing about the room though is the spacious bathroom, with it's own large window, and the incredible bed. The king size bed was so big that when one of our daughters had a nightmare, she came and slept across the foot of our bed and neither my husband or I noticed!! Everyone has also commented on the breakfast and I can only heartily second what everyone has already said. The first morning we tried the full (which includes things we had not seen before on other b and b full breakfast menus, like oatcakes, potato cakes). It was cooked perfectly. The homemade bread was also quite a treat, oh the homemade marmalade was so good too, and I don't even really like marmalade. The second morning my husband tried the eggs Benedict and pronounced it as the best he had ever had.

Another thing that really makes this place stand out are the little extras that you don't always get at other places: the bowl of candy bars in the lounge, the sherry, the many castle guide books available, the large selection of DVDs. And of course, the vey friendly and helpful Alan and Kate (and adorable black lab hattie, for whom we wish we had had only more bacon). If you are undecided about whether or not to stay here, you will not find a better deal!! Thanks Alan and Kate, for making the girls first bed and breakfast stay so memorable.

A huge "thank you" to Alan & Kate (& Hattie the dog) for making us feel so welcome at their lovely home during our sadly too short a stay in Matlock. Our room The Dray was very clean, comfortable, and full of character. Alan & Kate have obviously taken a great deal of time and effort to ensure their guests have everything they need from the wonderful breakfast to enough hangers in the wardrobe! Location wise we could not ask for a better spot. Near enough to the centre of town to sample the restaurants and bars, a short distance from Chatsworth and a great starting point to explore Derbyshire.

However what makes Sheriff Lodge so special is the hosts! Thank you Alan & Kate for making our weekend in Derbyshire so wonderful. We will be back! The Sisters x

We booked the Sherriff lodge because is allowed dogs. One room is put aside as pet friendly as it has direct acces to the outside. We were made most welcome after a long journey. The room was clean and comfortable. owners Kate & Alan were fabulous hosts - very warm and welcoming and the breakfasts were first class.

Room Tip: Ask fireman Alan to help carry bags.
