I was looking for a nice, friendly, clean and welcoming B&B for a 1-night stay in Matlock, and booked in at the Sheriff Lodge on the back of the reviews/ratings on Trip Advisor. I must say that it lives up to its reputation on here and more
Kate and Alan were very welcoming upon arrival (as was their lovely dog Hattie), and we received a nice introduction to the place with some very helpful tips on where to eat and what to do. The room we stayed in (the Nest) was immaculate and the views across Matlock and beyond were excellent, much better than we'd expected. The bed was very big and very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless with everything we needed and it had a very warm, comfortable and homely feel
The breakfast was, as expected after reading so many comments about it on here, outstanding and perfectly cooked, with a varied choice cooked exactly as we asked
We enjoyed a nice evening meal at The Sycamore up the road, but I'd also recommend a drink in Harvey's Bar in Matlock (perhaps one for the younger visitors), where the landlord and landlady were very friendly and their son spent 30 minutes chatting with us and introducing us to his dog Yeti
Thank you Kate and Alan for for a really nice night away, and we'll certainly be visiting again, highly recommended!
