Set in a beautiful location on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
Darley Dale, near Matlock, Derbyshire - Peaceful location away from the main road.

Thorncliffe House is situated in Darley Dale near Matlock on the edge of the Peak District National Park, just 4.5 miles from Chatsworth House. It's ideally located to visit the numerous sights and attractions in the Peak District & Derbyshire Dales. Great for walkers and cyclists with secure storage for your bikes.

The house is maintained to a very high standard and has everything you need to make your holiday perfect. Much more than just a holiday cottage we've tried to provide everything to make it a real home from home.

There are four double bedrooms, one has a King Size bed and a luxury en-suite bathroom with walk in shower. Two others have double beds and the fourth has two single beds that can be linked together on request to form a Superking bed. There's also a modern family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Downstairs the entrance porch leads into a large hallway with an office area. The living room has a log burner and seats 8 people. There is a large flatscreen tv with freesat, dvd player and music system. The large kitchen/dining room is a lovely light room with patio doors leading outside onto the patio area which has tables and seating for 8. The dining table seats 10 and the fitted kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and more, including a wine fridge. There's a large fully equipped utility room if you want to do your own laundry and a downstairs cloakroom with wc and hand basin.

Outside is a secure garage with electric door for one car and ample parking at the front or side of the house for more cars. Beyond the patio area is a large enclosed lawned garden that benefits from the sun all day. We recommend supervision of very young children in the garden at all times.The house backs onto an open playing field that has a small childrens play area at the top, close enough to be handy but far enough away not to be a nuisance.

Free wifi throughout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A selection of our trip advisor reviews -

“Exceptional 5 star quality, fantastically equipped.”

We were amazed at the standard and finish of the property. The accommodation was beyond anything we expected. We thought it looked lovely in the photographs, but they really don't do it justice.



“Simply the best”

In reality the photos don't do the property justice! Everything is so well maintained and presented it is quite simply stunning - it is without doubt the nicest holiday home we have ever stayed in.



“Beautifully appointed property”

We spent three days at this property, for a family reunion. It is a superb property situated perfectly to explore the beautiful Derbyshire area. The property itself is beautifully decorated and furnished. The kitchen is superbly equipped with top quality appliances. We received fresh flowers and wine and a very warm welcome from the owners. I would thoroughly recommend this property, we had a wonderful weekend and would most definitely return.

A very comfortable and spacious house in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for a family get together. The house is situated in a quiet location off the main road with ample provision for parking including a single garage. It is very spacious, having 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is very tastefully furnished throughout, all in good condition and extremely well presented. Kitchen/utility room equipment were of a high standard. Our grandson was entertained with the good supply of toys. The position of the house is perfect for exploring the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Matlock is only 10 minutes away, a small town which has a reasonable Sainsburys and M&S food so it was easy to plan meals. A house where we hope to make a return visit.

Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Thorncliffe house for 4 nights. There was 6 adults and this house had plenty of room to accommodate us all. It was very well furnished to a high standard, with everything you needed and more. It was also maintained to a high standard.

The owner was very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for her.

There is lots to do in the area so a excellent base for exploring.

We will definitely stay again in the future.
