“Another great stay”
Reviewed 4 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Thank you so much to Sue and Abid for a second wonderful short stay at The Birds Nest. Lovely self catering apartment. So cosy with all the amenities you could need and just a stroll down the road to Matlock Bath.

Highly recommended and hope to visit again in the future.

“Always a delight to stay here”
Reviewed 27 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

I have stayed at The birds Nest 3 times now and am already thinking about our next trip. I am a Landscape Photographer and this is an ideal location for some of the most beautiful areas of the Peaks. Sue and Abid make us feel so welcome when we arrive. The flat is spacious and very tastefully decorated. 5 stars really doesn't do the place justice. I can not recommend this place highly enough.

“Lovely, well equipped apartment. short walk into Matlock Bath”
Reviewed 29 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

person found this review helpful

We booked in advance using the online booking system - all very easy and painless!

Sue met us on arrival and showed us around. The apartment is immaculate and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery/glasses etc and a welcome basket of teas/coffees etc. The bathroom was also immaculate and towels were provided, along with shampoo/conditioner/shower gels etc.... check out the drawers for more goodies! Both bedrooms were comfortable and plenty of wardrobe/drawer space for your stuff. The beds are double so if like us you are used to kingsize could take a bit of getting used to!!

The living room is large and has two comfy sofas and a dining table and chairs. Loads of DVDs are kept under the TV (which has SKY), wi-fi and games in the coffee table. There is also a games room with pool/table tennis and air hockey. You really won't get bored here!

My favourite thing here though is Angel the cat! she is so lovely and friendly - even my Mother liked her and she hates cats (even mine!!).

The apartment is just a few minutes walk from Matlock Bath centre - there is quite a steep small hill up to the apartment. Perfect location and walkable to the Mining Museum, Aquarium, Heights of Abraham, Masson Mills and train station.

I would recommend this place and hope to return again.

What a great find. A perfectly well kept property with everything one could ask for. Very pleasant owners who were most helpful. Excellant location to nearby shops and attractions. A short drive to Alton Towers and other nearby places of interest. Shall certainly be recommending this to family and friends.

“Our Stay at the Birds Nest Matlock Bath”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We loved our stay at the Birds Nest in Matlock Bath and would not hesitate to recommend it. The cottage was fantastic with every thing available, well appointed, extremely clean this was definitely a home from home with a lovely cottage feeling. We were met on arrival and made to feel most welcome and at home. We will definitely go back, it's fair to say the Birds Nest exceeded our expectations.
