Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We booked for a reunion gathering, and the house was absolutely perfect for us.

The welcoming touches were very much appreciated too.

Excellent communication with the owner throughout

We would like to book it again in the future.

“Fantastic house in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a fabulous house! Well-equipped, full of character and in a truly gorgeous setting.
The village itself is really lovely - we loved all the antique and vintage shops! And the surrounding area is breathtaking with lots of places to visit and explore.
Our group of young children particularly enjoyed the water play area at nearby Matlock's Hall Leys Park...just make sure you remember to take a towel!
All in all we had a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing stay and would highly recommend Durham House.

“Fantastic, quirky house in good location.”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our trip was for two families with 5 children aged from 1 to 7 and we had a great long weekend in this house. The kids just adored running up all the stairs and playing hide and seek. The owner was very helpful beforehand and provided lots of information about places to go, particularly for the children. Beds were comfortable and the house is well equipped. We really enjoyed getting a real fire going. Looking forward to going back for a week in the summer to explore the area some more.

“a lovely family break in a lovely cottage”
Reviewed 13 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

10 of us stayed here (4 couple, one single lady, one 2 month baby). The cottage provide ample space for us. The cottage is lovely and quaint with spacious bedrooms. 2 large bathrooms and a large kitchen, which was very well equipped. There is also a dining room with a large table for family meals. There are two smaller living rooms which are a bit on the small size for parties of 10 but we really liked that one had TV whilst the other didn't, the latter also having a lovely fire place.
Wirksworth village is nice to wander round. Matlock town was a 15min drive away and there are a number of walks from your doorstep.
The owner was lovely and helpful beforehand and during our stay. The property was clean and well equipped (not short of toilet roll etc!)
On arrival we could not find the property at first as it is tucked out the way and arriving in the dark meant we could not see house numbers. That's just something to look out for as we'd definitely recommend this property to others!

“Great Location; Big house”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have travelled for over 20 years and stayed as large groups all over the UK. I have to say this was one of the better locations, with a characterful village on the doorstep and many walking attractions, including Dovedale, within about 20 mins drive. The owner was very helpful beforehand and provided lots of information and there is more in the house. She also supplied a welcome tray. Beds were comfortable, the house full of character and in terms of kitchen essentials such as crockery and cutlery the house was exceptional. Since it is intended for large groups its a shame that neither lounge was large enough to hold all of us at once and mornings did involve a queue for the bathroom - an extra loo is probably needed when you have 12 guests. The Black's Head is a good pub and the Red Lion did a huge Sunday lunch.
