During June, we enjoyed an idyllic three week holiday in the Derbyshire Peak District. After experiencing the first class hospitality at Sheriff Lodge last summer, there was no question of where we would choose to stay during our holiday this year. Yet again our hosts Alan, Kate and their friendly “Room Fairies,” who service the bedrooms, looked after us so well. While the atmosphere is welcoming, friendly and informal, the service is delivered with a quiet efficiency, care and admirable attention to detail. All of this makes it a great place to stay.
After a great night’s sleep in a comfortable bed, what could be better than coming down to breakfast each morning to the aroma of Alan’s freshly baked bread and later to enjoy his exceptional homemade jam or marmalade? The delicious Derbyshire breakfast, prepared to order by Kate to satisfy individual tastes and dietary needs, was a great start to each and every action packed day.
Sheriff Lodge in Matlock was a great location for visiting the many and varied tourist attractions throughout Derbyshire. It is also an ideal base for touring around and walking through stunning scenery that the Peak District National Park has to offer. Alan and Kate provided a very useful visitors guide folder in the bedroom packed with information about interesting places to visit and where to eat out. As well as this there are numerous publications and maps in the lounge that helped us plan our days. Returning each evening we were assured of a parking space in the well lit, off road, parking area and the nearby Sycamore Inn provided excellent food in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Will we be returning to the Peak District? We’ll be back. Even after five weeks there are still a lot of places we have yet to visit.
Will we be returning to Sheriff Lodge? Yes we will.
