Sleeping ten people in five bedrooms, this family cottage in Darley Dale has a walled garden and is a mile from Matlock.

Rotherwood Cottage is a spacious family property in the village of Darley Dale, a mile from Matlock. This cottage has a four poster double and a further double on the first floor, with three inter-linked twins with sloping ceilings on the second floor. There is a bathroom on the first floor, and an additional basin and WC downstairs.

Also downstairs is a kitchen, utility, dining room and sitting room with gas fire. Outside, relax in the walled garden while the children play on the play equipment. There is also ample off road parking.

The village in which Rotherwood Cottage lies has a good pub, and there are more amenities in Matlock and Bakewell, which, along with the superb countryside and historic houses within easy reach, makes this an ideal family retreat.


Lovely stay
8 adults and 2 children in the property. The photo shows the back of the property. It is on a main road and the turn is sharp. Easy parking for 2 cars - 3 with care depending on size. Lovely living room and kitchen with dining seats for 8. The main bedrooms on the first floor are really lovely. The top floor rooms, as it says on description have low ceiling as they are converted attic. Middle room has stairs to it and there is a room on either side. Beds ok but under eaves so not great if you feel claustrophobic. The top rooms get really hot too but there are velux Windows - there were lots of flies when we went. Steep stairs One bathroom with bath and shower. Downstairs toilet with sink so can take a while for 10 people to get showered! Great garden with play frame Wi-fi, bedding and towels included

From the description I thought the garden would be behind the house and so protected from some of the traffic noise, but it isn't. It's right on the road. And the turning out of the parking area my mum struggled with. We had 3 adults and 3 kids and I wouldn't recommend any more people than this. It's a got two good doubles and then a converted loft with restricted height of three small interconnecting twin rooms. Fine for kids who wake each other up. It could do with a good clean (stained carpets, dusty under beds, blocked shower etc). Also there are some board games/kids games etc but the pieces are missing or broken. It's just not very well looked after. The guy with the keys was brusk about a time to meet him (on his terms not mine), and when I had to call him about the electrics sockets not working was rude and suggested it was my fault. We had a lovely week, but anyone thinking of staying here might want to be aware of some of this.

A cosy place to stay with everything we needed to feel at home

Suitable for a large family
We hired Rotherwood Cottage to stay with our five children-7 of us in total. The cottage sleeps 10 so there was plenty of room for us all. The kitchen and dining room were a suitable size for us as was the patio table although we might have struggled to seat 10 around both the dining room and patio tables. The climbing frame, in the garden, was a big hit with our younger children and we enjoyed sitting on the patio. Rotherwood Cottage is well situated for Matlock and the Peak District. A lock on the bathroom door would have been a bonus!

The cottage was spacious and a wonderful mix of "old and new" that worked amazingly well.
