Three of us stayed at the Sheriff Lodge, myself, my wife and my teenage daughter, we were in The Warren, which works well as a family room, more like two rooms, with a seperate child/teen area. Alan and Kate were excellent hosts, and we were welcomed with a hot drink on arrival-the coffee is excellent. The rooms are clean and...

This review is written for a friend who recently stayed. These are her comments: Can't fault Sheriff Lodge, everything was wonderful and I can't thank the hosts enough. I will miss the fabulous breakfasts, especially the Eggs Benedict! If visiting Matlock again I would choose this B&B without hesitation. The fact that there were other returning guests speaks volumes. Kate...

Thanks for your tremendouos comments - awards are great to achieve but it really is the 'Returning Guest' that tells us we are doing something right. Can't wait to look after you again soon ...incidentally we have just taken a re-booking from two guests that left this morning after a 14 night stay - they have re-booked for a 21...

We booked this on line after reading reviews on trip Advisor. The Hosts were very welcoming and could not do enough for us and the other guests. We stayed in the Loft which was at the top of the house, It was a lovely spacious room with a king size bed a good size on suite and lots of little...

Our title sums this B & B up, although it does omit mention of the amazingly friendly owners. We were welcomed with tea, coffee and cakes and after unwinding following a long drive were taken to our room, which had at it's centre the largest bed imagineable - much appreciated by those of us for whom a six-footer is just...

We stayed at Sheriff Lodge on 25th and 26th May to celebrate our birthdays. Alan and Kate were amazing hosts and we felt very well looked after. The rooms are lovely with huge, comfortable beds and the whole place is immaculate. Breakfast was the best we've ever had on our travels! We would definitely recommend to anyone and we'll certainly...

We stayed at Sherif Lodge from 17 to 21 May 2012 with our two greyhounds. It was perfect for us. Super accommodation, truly outstanding breakfasts, (from full english; to fruit salads to die for; home-made bread; cereals; juices, etc.) The friendlyness was second to none and we will definitely go back again. Only a short walk from Matlock town centre,...

We found this hotel via the Tourist Information Office list. It is wonderful. The bedrooms were well-furnished, the bathrooms spotless. The enormous bed in The Loft is the best night's sleep I've had in years. Amenities for guests are many and varied. The family made us so welcome and we left reluctantly after a large and freshly-cooked breakfast. We were...

Susan, Thanks for your great response - our gigantic (7 foot long) beds are obviously still a hit:-) But your review gives me a great opportunity to clarify a couple of minor points. Firstly we are not a hotel - the English Tourist Board won't allow this title as we simply (but we hope very effectively) supply bed & breakfast...

We visited with our large unruly dog on May Bank Holiday weekend, so we were in the self-contained Warren. It was warm, comfortable and cosy. the shower was wonderful and even the quirky eco-drainage system was not a problem for us. Nothing was too much trouble for Alan and Kate, they were obliging when we called to warn that we...

Stayed at Sherriff Lodge during the weekend of April 28th for a girls walking weekend. We stayed in The Warren with my dog. The Warren is really well set up for the dog with it's own external door for taking the dog out without disturbing the other guests and making it easier for us. Due to recent illness Alans wife...

Hello you three - thanks for a great response - we aim to please and it looks like we are succeeding:-) You are right about my favourite Mother-in-Law - Megan has been a fabulous help to me over the last few months - I couldn't have done it without her.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Sheriff Lodge. This was booked as a birthday treat. Made to feel very welcome. The room stayed in was comfortable, clean and well maintained. The only downside was the mattress on the bed was harder than I am used to. The breakfasts served were first class. Plenty of choice with quality ingredients used. The home made...

Thanks for your lovely posting - it really does help to know we are still getting it right after all these year (10 at the last count). Your comment about the firmness of the bed is an interesting one - just as your posting appeared on the site we received an e-mail from another pair of guests asking where we'd...
