“Lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Very comfortable rooms with many thoughtful extras. Wonderful breakfasts, all tastes catered for and lovely home-made bread. Do try the Eggs Benedict. Kate and Alan had a lot of information on local walks which we found very helpful. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Found Sheriff Lodge via Tripadvisor. Good B&B - the room we have was pleasant, the breakfast very good and you didn't feel as you were intruding, which I often do at B&Bs and is why I generally don't stay in them. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. Plenty of parking. Quick stroll into Matlock.

Room Tip: We were on first floor...

we stayed for 2 nights in July. Alan & Kate are wonderful hosts. Friendly without being obtrusive. The rooms are spacious & well kitted out (even including a fan to keep cool & an emergency kit in the wardrobe.) Breakfasts are excellent & there are plenty of maps/guides fro the local area.
We will certainly be returning!

Ten of us including Bailey (Dog) took over Sheriff Lodge for first & last nights of a four night three day walking holiday.
Rooms and breakfast were perfect for us.
Nothing was too much trouble. They even let us leave our cars, for the nights we didn't stay, while on our walking trip.
Thank You.
Mike

In June 2013 we reviewed this guest house on tripadvisor and posed the question “Will we be returning to Sheriff Lodge? Well, actions speak louder than words, and yes we did, for another three weeks this year during June 2014. Although there was never any doubt that we would choose to base our holiday at this excellent Guest House, the wide variety of beautiful scenery and walks, places of interest, and events in the Peak District, made it possible for us to enjoy a completely different holiday this year. We very much appreciate the thought, time and effort our hosts Alan and Kate must put in behind the scenes to consistently achieve and maintain the quality of the accommodation they provide for their guests. We have previously mentioned how much we enjoyed Alan’s freshly baked bread and his exceptional home-made jam and marmalade. We were therefore delighted to see that the BBC's One Show agreed with us when Alan recently won their Best Home-made Bread competition. If you wish to see more reasons why we keep returning to Sheriff Lodge, click on the links below to view our previous reviews, which are as relevant this year as they were when we posted them in previous years.

Although not seen you for a while, many congratulations on the BEST bread award, richly deserved, as seen on The ONE Show.
From the recent reviews your still the only place to stay, hope to return soon,

Thanks Susiesue,

We had a great day in London for the Live appearance on the show and a great day in Cardiff at The One Show Kitchen (actually Angela Grays Cookery School at Llanerch Vineyard) filming for the item. Fiona and Chris did great jobs and we spent the day talking bread.

Looking forward to seeing you soon to share that Award Winning Loaf!

Best wishes
Kate & Alan @ Sheriff Lodge

As soon as you step in, you are warmly welcomed by Kate and sit down to tea and cakes. As it was our second stay, we were catching up with news as you would do with family or old friends. The house is beautifully decorated and the rooms are very comfortable with a theme. This time we stayed in the "mouse trap" and it was so quirky to have tiny mice in all sort of shape and colour - what a brilliant idea. I also like the pile of books behind the door, if someone cannot sleep at night they have a choice of novels. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and of course there was Alan' s bread. I would recommend anybody considering to visit Derbyshire to stop with Alan and Kate as it is like staying with family or friends.
