It is approached down a private driveway through a meadow and a gate leading to a gravelled parking area. A large oak porch leads into this delightful accommodation where furnishings and fittings are of the a highest quality and spectacular unspoiled south west facing views across the Amber Valley make this the most unique of properties. The property is entered into via a large entrance hall, off which are the main reception rooms. To the rear of the hall, through double glazed doors, is the fully equipped kitchen which is open to the south facing conservatory style dining area that has some occasional seating and fold back glazed doors opening onto a large wrap around patio. A large teak table and chairs, a custom steel barbecue and a well-stocked herb garden cater for any alfresco dining requirements, in addition to sun loungers, spacious lawns and stunning views.

Gardens and meadowland surround the property and there are also footpaths from the doorstep. Within a mile of the property is the World Heritage site that houses the world’s first water-powered cotton spinning factories and just under 4 miles is the delightful town of Matlock Bath boasting smart riverside cafés and bars. Slotted in between are more traditional pubs, restaurants, tea shops and ice cream parlours. Here visitors can experience a cable car ride up the dramatic face of the gorge The Heights of Abraham and admire the views of ‘Little Switzerland’ as Byron once described this area.

    The cottage is very good, lovely quiet situation with good views. We all enjoyed our stay. There are a few maintenance issues which we reported when we left, but these did not affect our stay. It is probably due an overall check as there were some marks on rugs, one corner kitchen cupboard could not be used as broken, the patio seat cushions are now quite grubby. However, we were warm, comfortable and loved the views. The butcher in Holloway is fantastic, but it's a shame that there is not a pub within walking distance.

    The cottage was lovely and the view stunning. However, we do think that it is now showing signs of neglect. It could do with a professional deep clean, especially the furniture and rugs. Also the smell of drains in the utility room and bedroom/bathroom above needs addressing. The garden, though good for our very young grandchildren to play in, was definitely not enclosed as advertised, which had been one of the features that led us to book this cottage. Overall, we think the 5 star rating is rather over generous.

    Outstanding property and amenities. Abundance of space for leisure and eating with well fitted kitchen. Modern bathrooms with good showers. Lack of information on operation of heating system. Television was not working properly in lounge and not fixed whilst we were there.

    It was a beautiful cottage but lacked equipment, needs a bit of maintenance. Only a few very shallow bowls, had to use a mixing bowl for our porridge, taking turns between 3 of us. No baking trays, had to use cake tins to put garlic bread on. Load of cake tins but no basic baking trays. Only 1 toilet roll supplied for each bathroom. No washing up liquid. Barbeque disgusting, hadn't been cleaned for ages, wouldn't use it. No control for underfloor heating downstairs. Showers bit tatty, mould and one didn't have shower head on small one. Some of sockets didn't work and extractor fan in bathroom didn't appear to work. electrics seemed a bit dodgy. Website says pub within walking distance, closed 15 years ago, need to use a car to get to a pub.

    This was our second time to Lamp Cottage. Beautiful accommodation in a gorgeous setting. My only complaint would be that given the cost of this cottage, I would expect all equipment to be working and clean. Unfortunately, we had to clean out the woodburner on the night of arrival before we could light a fire. Plates had been put away dirty and the spray attachment in the kitchen leaked in the cupboard underneath. The above explanation is the only reason why I can't give this cottage a 10/10. It's a stunning cottage with fabulous styling and incredibly hard to leave!

    Lamp cottage is stunning, furnished beautifully, a real treat. We had a problem with the heating and couldnt find any instructions so we were cold on our first night. We ran out of hot water a couple of times and had to wait for it to heat up which was a bit inconvenient, although the response when I rang was excellent. We felt a welcome book would have been helpful, with some history about the cottage too, no feedback forms either. The cooker hob instructions were difficult to find as well after taking us an hour to try and cook breakfast. Also instructions on what we needed to do when leaving the cottage, ie beds, fire, etc None of this affected our stay, it was superb and would definately go again.

    We come away as a group every year and are always looking for a lovely house to stay in that has the room and comfort we need. Lamp Cottage was outstanding on every level. Fantastic house, great location, lovely furnishings and fittings and was even dressed for Christmas with decorations! We could not fault Lamp Cottage and would love to come again in the summer time to appreciate the garden and al fresco dining! Thanks again for a lovely weekend

    Just enjoyed a family holiday at Lamp Cottage with children and grandchildren. The cottages was spacious and just perfect for all of us. It is set in a quiet location with a lovely garden and lovely views. I would definitely recommend this cottage and will be very keen to return there again sometime in the future.

    We had a lovely relaxing week at Lamp Cottage. Spacious, lovely layout, furnishings, comfortable. You couldn't fault it really....except! We had no internet access for the whole week due to a BT fault. Owners team tried to fix but it was BT fault so what can you do... Only other minor quibble (and I'm being really nit-picky here because I know they'd want to know) was lack of small bowls for picks and crisps for our g&ts! Also the folder with the house info really needs updating. Local Sainsbury's IS open on a Sunday. As I said small minor thing. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this lovely cottage.
