With an open plan living-area boasting impressive mullioned windows to two aspects and a modern well-equipped kitchen, this lovingly restored property is able to sleep four people.

Just a short walk from the centre of Matlock lies this outstanding property. With views of the Church and Riber Castle, this lovely cottage has been lovingly and uniquely styled by the current owners to create a high quality holiday home. The single bedroom is reasonably small and comes with a pull out stacker bed, so perhaps this property is better suited for younger families or a couple looking to enjoy a romantic break together.

With pleantiful local amenities, everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday is within easy reach.


Still Fabulous
This was our second visit to Tawney House. As before, the apartment was warm, cosy & well equipped. Key collection was hassle free. The car park for the apartment residents ensured we never had any problems parking. It is a fantastically situated apartment - 2 minute walk to the park & 5 minutes into Matlock. The Peak District & Derbyshire are a beautiful part of the country & well worth a visit.

The cottage is ideal for Matlock. There is a great kids play area and park 2 minutes walk away and a nice pub opposite. The cottage was very good to stay in with everything we needed. It was a shame to come home.
Mr Dear

Loved this apartment. We had a fabulous week and will not hesitate to return. The apartment was perfect; warm, cosy and comfortable. It was perfectly situated to travel around Derbyshire. There was a bus stop immediately outside and the station within a 10 minute walk. No problem parking. Perfect.

What can I say about this cottage? We loved it! Car parking - Off road space. No problems parking. Value - Amazing value! Bathroom - Spotless and modern. Bedrooms - Clean & warm. Bedding & towels provided. Living area - Open plan. Kitchen has all you need. View to the church was lovely- the church is lit up at night. Packet of biscuits on arrival - a lovely treat. Sofa was comfy. TV has Sky. DVD's & books if required. Location - 5 minute walk into Matlock through the park. Matlock is lovely. It has independent shops as well as high street brands. Big Sainsbury's near by. Easy walk to the train station - the line goes to Newark via Nottingham & Derby. The X17 bus goes to Chesterfield & Sheffield from outside the apartment & a bargain at £5.80 for a Day Explorer that includes the trams. Owners - Lovely. We had a perfect break & look forward to going back. The only thing to note is that the property can only be reached by outside steps.

We found the property to be a lovely flat in a great location. 8 Tawney House was bright, modern and spacious. We found the owners very helpful.
