The house is also perfect for family or friends celebrations, reunions and get togethers, with plenty of space for you to relax and unwind.
Derwent House is a Georgian House with many original features, set over three floors and comprising of six bedrooms the house offers guests:
A large sitting room with a log burner set in a stone fireplace. The room has a large bay window which overlooks the front garden and Knowleston gardens beyond.
Derwent House is located in a quiet area of picturesque Matlock, next to Hall Leys Park, just a hop, skip and a jump away to local pubs, restaurants and shops. Set on the edge of the Peak District National Park we are ideally based to explore the sights and sounds of this wonderful area in the heart of the country.
Derwent House is nicely decorated, full of character, extremely well equipped and very comfortable, with some lovely touches; several vases of fresh flowers and a cupboard full of books, games and videos. The situation is very attractive, beside a park with views of the surrounding hills. Milk and juice and a box of chocolates in the fridge and pleasant greetings from the owner made for a warm welcome. It’s only fault is low doorways! My son is six foot three and kept hitting his head! Most rooms have en-suite facilities. All-in-all this is one of the nicest houses we have stayed in.

Lovely family gathering
Derwent House is a lovely, well appointed, spacious venue for a family gathering. With an age range from 2 to 70 the house provided everything necessary for a happy long weekend with room to lounge, to play, to cook and gather together round the kitchen table or party round the dining room table. The children made good use of the generous supply of games and books when it rained and we made regular visits to the fantastic Hall Leys Park which was literally a 2 minute stroll from the front door when the sun peeped out. The kitchen is a pleasure to use with everything arranged intuitively so that you could always source what was needed quickly and it did really have everything that could be needed. We used an outside caterer for the main celebration meal but when we go back again, which I’m sure we will, I’ll happily use the kitchen because it is ‘cook friendly’. The bedrooms were good and the beds high quality. There are easy to use stair gates top and bottom of main staircase. The road outside is a cul-de-sac so no traffic noise. The wifi was good.

Tasteful, comfortable, spacious, warm and welcoming
A second lovely Derwent House weekend and a third one booked for next year. This house brilliantly meets our needs as a central meeting point for our family. It is beautifully and tastefully equipped, but not too precious that you can’t relax. I would unreservedly recommend it.

A perfect house for a group of friends
A group of eight of us in our late fifties and early sixties try to meet up a couple of times a year. It’s always quite difficult to find our perfect house as each couple prefers to have a private bathroom and we need a big dining table, lounge and kitchen. Derwent House fitted our requirements perfectly. The house is very well appointed with plenty of finishing touches way beyond what is normally expected of a holiday let (fresh flowers, a well-stocked larder of herbs and spices as well as foil, clingfilm etc). There is good WIFI and very good TV, DVD and sound equipment. The house is well located within easy walking distance of the town centre so that there was no worry about having to pick designated drivers but it is only a matter of a few minutes walk into open countryside.
