“A really great place to stay”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in June 2015

We had a really lovely stay at The Birds' Nest last year. I live locally and wouldn't normally stay away so close to home but a friend came over from Australia just after I'd moved house and I wanted somewhere comfortable for the first week of her visit. The money was well spent as the apartment is lovely - very clean with eclectic furniture and artefacts. Sue and Abid made us very welcome and there was even a bottle of wine on our arrival. There is everything you need in the apartment and it's very pretty outside too. It doesn't take long to walk into Matlock Bath or Matlock. I really recommend The Birds' Nest if you are looking for somewhere special to stay in the area. Apologies to Sue and Abid for the length of time it's taken me to submit this review - the new house needed a lot more work than I first realised!

“Just beautiful!!”

A group of friends and I rented out both Moles End and Birds Nest. The accommodation is just beautiful - spacious, clean, comfortable, beautifully furnished. Sue and Abid were on hand should we need anything (thanks Abid for taking a group photo on our night out...it was perfect). The welcoming touches of tea, coffee, milk and wine were a really nice touch. We could not fault the place.....I'm sure some if not all of us will return at some point and will certainly be passing on our recommendation! Thanks for a perfect weekend.

“What a gem we found here.”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From the moment we arrived we felt like we we'd found a little gem. The courtyard with all the beautiful flowers and little seating areas, plus the cat. The flat was imacullate, with all the little touches that make it home from home, even down to having everything you need to make a cake. The owner's we're on hand if you needed anything and we're so pleasent.would really recommend this place and mole end where the rest of our family stayed.It definitely is 5*****

“A stunning nook”

people found this review helpful

I was insanely jealous as soon as I stepped into the courtyard. Photos don't do the cottage justice and I spent a few moments hugging the bed when I stepped inside. Abid and Susan have poured a lot of energy into making sure there is everything you could need there and their only fault is they won't sell it to me. One day perhaps but until then I will keep visiting.

Simply loved our stay in the gorgeous birds nest. There were so many lovely little touches which made the apartment feel so homely. Lots of care, thought and attention has gone into the place. Very charming and Sue and Abid are such lovely people. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday.
