    Hoseasons "A lovely cottage in the splendid area of Matlock with plenty of attractions a romantic getaway perfect for couples.\n\nAbacus House started life out as the local village school in Hackney Derbyshire. It is believed to date back to 1910. This charming characterful Grade II listed cottage opens its front door onto the open veranda corridor once having many small feet running along to get to class on time.\nAbacus House boasts a very high specification with a modern stylish kitchen and bathroom but manages to retain its quirky stylish twists throughout. A large open plan living area leads through to a dining area still housing the characterful open grate arts and crafts fireplace and then to the kitchen with its large feature windows throughout letting the light flood through the whole of the ground floor. A staircase leads to an upper floor with its fun and interesting layout including a bed and bathroom along with a seating area complete with cushions to relax on and enjoy the view from the school windows.\nSet within the beautiful area of Matlock you are within easy reach of one of the most stunning parts of the Peak District. The closest attractions are Matlock and Matlock Bath giving the opportunity to explore the Heights of Abraham and Gulliver’s Kingdom accessed via cable car and offering spectacular views of the Derwent Valley. From here you can tour the network of caverns and passageways or walk over 60 acres of woodland hillside. This is an ideal base from which to explore the region’s attractions including the magnificent stately homes. The beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are an absolute must see or visit the picturesque villages of Bakewell and Ashover Cardale in TV’s ‘Peak Practice’ which are both close by. Excellent walking can be found from the doorstep plus activities at Carsington Water including sailing windsurfing canoeing and cycling plus excellent birdwatching in the surrounding areas.\n\n\nThis property can be booked together with Hopscotch Corner CC418045 to accommodate up to six guests.\n\n" https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/925/840/925287.jpg CC418041

    Beautiful cottage with lovely period features and a unique mezzanine level with dual aspect windows. Excellent facilities and decor. Short walk to shop/pubs/restaurant. Beautiful countryside only a few minutes walk in every direction.

    Abacus house is a gem. It is just as illustrated and the neighbours are friendly to visitors (not always the case in a residential area). The owner was present and helpful on arrival - it's good to have that personal contact. The area speaks for itself as it is in a wonderful open and picturesque part of the country. I would certainly consider a second visit.

    Abacus house was very clean and well-equipped. It was spacious and comfortable. We loved the mezzanine style bedroom! The school related touches were nice too and added to the stay. It was easy to find off the main road. We really enjoyed taking our baby to Abacus House for his first holiday!

    We love staying in the Matlock area, after stopping 3 times at Hopscoth next door we decided to try Abacus this time around and we loved it even more! It has the true home away from home vibe, it’s super cosy and we loved upstairs with the big window and the bed was so comfy! Only thing we noticed was that the sofa wasn’t the comfiest but it isn’t a major factor so it didn’t affect us too much, 100% will be returning!

    We loved our little break away I'm Abacus House. Everything you needed was there and we loved the homely feel of it. The bedroom was gorgeous, loved sitting up there reading. We will definitely be back next year.

    We had a lovely weekend away at this cottage for Chatsworth country fair. It's location is great for Chatsworth, Matlock and Bakewell. We fell in love with the cottage straight away; it is beautifully decorated and has some lovely little touches (keep an eye out for some Harry Potter bits!) Would 100% recommend and we hope to return soon.
