Glendon Guest House


Glendon sits in a terrace in Matlock, formerly a spa town, on the edge of the Derbyshire Dales. Its façade in a small, quiet terrace is attractive and faces gardens designed by Joseph Paxton. The Victorian town-house is entered via the hall and the 6 bedrooms are on the first floor. The guest sitting room on the first floor faces the gardens and has books and magazines to browse – there is even a ‘book-swap’ facility. The town is well placed for visiting the Peak District, Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and other historic houses. It is ideal for walkers exploring Edale, Youlgreave, the Monsal Trail, for visitors to historic mills like Arkwrights, or families going to see Gullivers Kingdom and the Heights of Abraham. Matlock has good specialised clothes shops.
The four poster and family rooms are spacious; others are cosy. Each room is individually designed and include a silent mini-fridge, ironing facilities and en-suite shower (the premiere/family room has a bath and shower over). They are furnished in a contemporary style to provide welcoming surroundings.

The mirrored breakfast room on the ground floor overlooks the front garden and is bright and airy, with separate tables. The breakfasts, prepared by chef/patron Adrian, are legendary, with wide choice, including smoked salmon, fruits, yoghurts, different breads and a vegetarian option.
There are a range of eating options within easy walking distance of Glendon; from fine dining to European/Asian to pubs. This includes the Stones Restaurant and Bar 2010 – a trendy licensed café open until 19:30. For those with an interest in antiques/vintage the shops on Dale Road are not to be missed.

Rooms: 6
