What made our stay feel special was the very personal service provided by Ziz. We arrived after a long drive, feeling drained, and were provided with a large pot of tea and cake, which was extremely welcome. Our room was airy and welcoming, the bed comfortable, so we were relaxed enough next morning to tackle the very large, very good breakfast, which sustained us for much of the rest of the day. The position of Sheriff Lodge is fairly central, with a five minute walk to the centre of Matlock. It was our second visit to the area, the first at this B&B; there’s plenty to do and we are certain to return, certainly to Sheriff Lodge.
