This unique cottage is located in Wensley near Matlock and can sleep six people in three bedrooms.

Cambridge Lodge is an amazing and unique cottage which has been converted from a water tank in the hamlet of Wensley near Matlock in Derbyshire. The cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms (one with an en-suite) and a family bathroom. The accommodation also includes a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with Smart TV and a reading area. Outside is off road parking and a patio area with wonderful views across to Chatsworth House. For a memorable holiday in beautiful Derbyshire, Cambridge Lodge is a superb holiday home all year round.


WOW, WOW and more WOW
Cambridge Lodge certainly has the wow factor in abundance. It is even better than the photographs. The fixtures and fittings are of an extremely high standard. Bedding, towels etc are best quality. All furnishings are very comfortable. It is far more than "a home away from home". It is equipped with everything you will need and more, for a relaxing stay in a lovely area of the Peak District. There is no welcome pack your arrival. Instead you are provided with a "welcome feast", that kept us supplied for days. The owner, Lisa goes above and beyond what you would expect. Her wonderful greeting on our arrival, telephone call on first evening, and unexpected bottle of Prosecco on our return from a day out to celebrate our wedding anniversary, followed up with a telephone call on our return home, shows this is a labour of love. There is no "if" we will return, just a "when" will we return.

Fabulous property in a fantastic location. It really is a home from home. There was every imaginable kitchen utensil and cooking implement. It is an excellent self catering cottage, like nothing I've experienced elsewhere. The welcome from the owner was second to none.

This was our third time there, it is a piece of heaven. This is a seven star place and service, we will be going back again. It is a home from home, there is nothing more you could want and it is set in beautiful surroundings.

Excellent & unusual base to explore the Peak District
As Cambridge Lodge wasn't booked the week prior to our arrival, Lisa invited us to check-in early and laid on a superb welcome lunch. Lisa is a wonderful host and she and Jim have made sure that everything you could possible need and more is supplied - fully equipped kitchen, wifi, smart TVs (with Netflix), a body shaper (you have to experience it to understand what it is!), an abundance of toiletries, every type of tea you could possibly want, plus more. Cambridge Lodge is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District, is secluded enough, but not too far away from the large shops in Matlock or a very good village shop in Winster.

Wow, what an amazing cottage! The cottage had everything you could want and we felt at home immediately. There was plenty of room for the four of us and we especially liked the snug in the evening. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and Cambridge Lodge beats all of them. We would definitely stay again.
