Self Catering Cottages in Matlock

With Farm Stay’s online search facility it’s easy to locate the perfect self catering property to serve as a base for exploring the many delights of Matlock and the surrounding area.

A self catering short break or longer holiday cottager is ideal for families and couples wanting more freedom and privacy than a hotel can offer. Not only will you be able to come and go exactly as you please, but you can also relax in the knowledge that each and every Farm Stay property is regularly inspected and graded by the AA or Visit England.


Matlock is a bustling town surrounded by the stunning countryside of the Derbyshire Dales. Once a fashionable resort famous for its hydros and spa treatments, today it is better known today for its shopping, award-winning Hall Leys Park, Peak Rail steam railway and the gigantic folly of Riber Castle. A little downriver is Matlock Bath, which hosts the main tourist attractions of the locality including the Heights of Abraham, and the annual Matlock Bath Illuminations.

After a day’s sightseeing, either in the town or further afield, you’ll require refreshments but you don’t have to cook if you don’t want to. One of the many advantages of a self catering holiday is that you can opt whether to eat in or eat out; if it’s the latter, you certainly won’t go hungry in Matlock which offers a fabulous selection of great places to eat and drink, serving delicious locally sourced food.

However active or inactive you wish to be in and around Matlock, you can set your own pace when you choose a self catering property through Farm Stay.
