Being regulars in the holiday rental market, we took with us all the everyday requirements normally needed but these were unnecessary, as they were all supplied plus much more.

We were greeted by the lovely Sue on arrival who gave us a detailed tour of the property & told us to call on her whenever required. In addition to the things not normally supplied there were chocolates, wine, bath robes & many other extras to make our stay special.

Unfortunately I had an accident on a day out, just 36 hours before we were due to leave & Sue was very helpful, allowing us to stay on an extra day whilst we made arrangements to get home.

The property was beautiful, the service provided by Sue & her husband was first class & I would suggest anyone thinking of renting out holiday properties should look here for the perfect way to do it.

“Wonderful!”

A lovely apartment tucked away from the main road, perfect for exploring Matlock Bath on foot! Great location for visiting other nearby towns/attractions, plenty to do in the area, we ran out of time to visit them all so will definitely be back! The property its self in on the first floor, great size and can easily accommodate two people even enough room for four! Owner has really thought of everything even down to the minor details, real luxury apartment which could easily be considered a home from home. Owner only resides across the courtyard so is on hand if needed, otherwise they have prepared a folder full of useful information about the apartment and the area so you will never be stuck for ideas. Wifi is a little slow and really only available in the lounge but I think this is to be expected considering the area. Would highly recommend the Balti in Matlock Bath, had a great meal here! Owner let us park on the courtyard so access to the property unloading our car was made very easy, Sky TV is also provided with Sky plus which is also an added bonus. Just book this apartment you will not be disappointed!

Derbyshire is a great county to visit, with beautiful country houses to see and wonderful countryside. Matlock Bath is a really convenient base to explore the area, and The Bird's Nest is such a comfortable, well appointed apartment. The owners always make us feel welcome, and we love coming here! When can we find an excuse to visit again?

“Lovely place for a weekend break”

This is a lovely little place, that is spotlessly clean, and everything that you would ever need!
We booked this for a girly weekend away, and were pleasantly suprised by the size of the apartment, more than enough for 4 people for a week, let alone a weekend.
Sue met us on arrival and gave us a brief tour and showed us where everything was, including the little games room, and cushions for the outside seating in the lovely courtyard.
We were blessed with fantastic weather so did plenty of wlaking round Matlock Bath, the Heights of Abraham, and also tried the balti restaurant on Sue's recommendation, it was fantastic and we came back with a doggy bag!
Would definitely recommend, and come again.

We loved our stay at The Bird's Nest...starting from the warm welcome from Sue and the lovely bottle of red wine & greeting card. The entire apartment is spotlessly clean. We loved the comfy beds and cosy furnishings. The large dining and lounge area was perfect when friends called in. Our teenage boys really enjoyed the Playstation 2 with a good selection of games, heaps of DVDs and the downstairs games room. The apartment had excellent kitchen facilities and everything had been thought of. We also liked the off street parking. Only a few minutes walk from the village, we were delighted with this apartment and would definitely recommend it to families or 2 couples traveling together ( could sleep 5 with pullout bed). The Shahs were friendly, helpful & even waved us goodbye. We give this apartment 5 stars
