Sheriff Lodge

Bed and Breakfast in Matlock

Welcome to Sheriff Lodge

Formerly a gentleman’s residence and originally built in 1740 then extended in 1904, Sheriff Lodge is now a relaxing and tranquil Bed & Breakfast in Matlock, away from the bustle of the town but still within easy walking distance. In an elevated position, the rooms have a wonderful view of the Derwent Valley and Riber Castle.

All five en-suite rooms have been redecorated this year for a fresh, uplifting yet peaceful feel with lots of extras to make your stay more comfortable i.e. ‘Things You May Have Forgotten Box’, seven-foot beds, extra blankets, extra pillows, fresh flowers, sweeties as well as more than you would expect on the hospitality tray.

No worries about car parking or cycle storage, there is plenty of room for everyone.

Derbyshire is a beautiful area of the country and there is something for everyone here, attractions for small people, walking, cycling, fishing, stately homes, antique shops, a host of excellent restaurants – all very close and easily accessible.

Sheriff Lodge is also one of the few dog friendly B&Bs in Matlock so if you want to bring your furry friend please phone for availability.

Discounts Available

Since my arrival, in December 2017, I have been working hard to acquire discounts for various attractions, eateries and Houses in the area so please ask if you are likely to book before staying. Everyone loves a bargain and I hope these discounts will make you feel you have had even more value for money at Sheriff Lodge.

Bringing your dog?

Three of the five rooms can be dog friendly. The majority of guests with their dogs to date have treated Sheriff Lodge with respect and this helps keep the high standard – please see the Ts&Cs for bringing your dog. There is an extra charge for a dog which goes towards the extra deep clean required when they leave. Please note that The Mousehole, The Dray and The Warren are dog friendly. The Nest or The Loft are not dog friendly, so please check before booking that you have the correct room.
