Formerly a gentleman’s residence and originally built in 1740 then extended in 1904, Sheriff Lodge is now a relaxing and tranquil Bed & Breakfast in Matlock, away from the bustle of the town but still within easy walking distance. In an elevated position, the rooms have a wonderful view of the Derwent Valley and Riber Castle.
All five en-suite rooms have a fresh, uplifting yet peaceful feel with lots of extras to make your stay more comfortable, i.e. a ‘Things You May Have Forgotten’ Box, seven-foot beds, extra blankets, extra pillows, fresh flowers and sweeties, as well as more than you would expect on the hospitality tray. We have two double rooms, The Nest and The Loft, on the second floor, then there are twin rooms, The Dray and The Mousehole, on the first floor (the twin beds can be zipped and linked to make huge double beds). Our fifth room, The Warren, is a family-friendly, pet-friendly space that can sleep up to two adults and three children.
In addition, feel free to relax in the spacious surroundings of our Drawing Room. Here you will find daily newspapers, books and music to help you relax whilst you are with us. Daily cake served at 4.30pm. Sheriff Lodge is now a BYO property – so Bring Your Own wine and champagne and we will gladly chill it for you and provide you with an ice bucket should you require it. There is also a small fridge in the Drawing Room provided for guests’ use.
There are plenty of maps, promotion leaflets and information in the Drawing Room to help you decide what to do whilst visiting the beautiful area of Matlock and the Peak District. Please feel free to borrow any of the literature during your stay.
