Great visit to Chatsworth and Peaks - Rating 5/5

Stayed at Barton House for 3 day break so as to visit RHS Chatsworth and see a little of the Peak District - couldn’t have found a better B&B - Sue and Lee looked after us very well, excellent accommodation and breakfast provided - I would rate this as the full 5 star experience

Lovely B and B - Rating 5/5

We stayed here as it is in a central location for walking in the Dales. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable.Good choice of food for breakfast, and Sue, the owner was friendly and helpful.It is a 10 minute walk into the town where there is a reasonable choice of places to eat, and is within a 10,15 minute drive to other nearby small towns.There are numerous places to visit and for walking nearby so it is ideally situated for going round th beautiful Derbyshire Dales.


Thanks Lei11

Lovely location - Rating 5/5

We stayed at Barton House overnight on a working weekend. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating even getting up early on a Sunday morning to accommodate an early breakfast. The room was a really large double, that could easily have been a king size. The en suite bathroom was lovely with a selection of toiletries. Sky tv and a great wifi connection. The view from the bedroom window was across the Peak District. Breakfast was lovely with s large selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and juices. Followed by a full cooked English breakfast. Will definitely stay again.


Thanks Tuttifrutti

Excellent place to stay - Rating 5/5

A nice friendly B&B. Breakfast was fine though after five days we did find the choice rather limited and the selection of cereals poor. Fresh fruit was spot on.The room was clean, large and the bed outstandingly comfortable. Large bathroom, excellent shower and well filled with toiletries. Ventilation to the bedroom was not an option as the A6 road outside carried a huge amount of traffic day and night. For a light sleeper this room is a non starter. For us it did not matter as the weather was not hot. If we were to return to Matlock we would certainly want to stay with Sue but only if her rear bedroom was available.


Thanks for the feedback and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We checked the double glazing and noticed that the upper window was not closed. That is our error so sorry for that. The A6 road is convenient for Matlock to Chatsworth and Bakewell and we are well set back from the road so traffic noise should not be an issue. We will monitor and check with other guests and thanks again for the feedback. We will also up our game on the cereal front :-)

We ask that you please vacate your room by 11.00am on the morning of departure.


Please note the cancellation policy before committing to a reservation.

In order for us to confirm a reservation, credit/debit card details are required to secure your booking. No payment is taken from this card unless you ask us to, or the booking is cancelled within 7 days of the scheduled date of arrival, or you do not show, or you use the card to pay on departure.

The exception to this policy is for bookings at peak times and / or special events where we reserve the right to take a deposit payment equivalent to the room(s) single night rate. You will be informed of this at the time of booking.

If you are unable to secure the booking with a credit/debit card then we require payment by BACS for the full amount of the stay. We will then send confirmation once the money has cleared.

Bookings made online may be subject to differing terms and conditions in force at the time of booking. This is to protect your security in carrying out the booking and providing credit card details over the internet.

Cancellation by the Guest

We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases.

In the event of a cancellation up to 7 days prior to the scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made.

If you cancel your reservation within 7 days of the scheduled date of arrival a cancellation charge equivalent to the room(s) single night rate will be made.

Guests failing to arrive, without notification, may be responsible to a charge equivalent to the total reservation price.

We take all Bookings in good faith, as we are unable to judge reasons for change, cancellation or non-arrival, guests are reminded that no exceptions to the above conditions will be made and that any booking made with Barton House for either accommodation or goods, services, meals or drinks that are pre booked (verbal or written) forms a legally binding contract. For this reason we advise that you take out a suitable insurance product to cover against unexpected costs such as cancellation fees. In addition, we may take legal action, through the Courts, to recover any outstanding debts.

Cancellation by Us

Should it become necessary for us to cancel a booking we will contact you immediately. Any payments made will be refunded in full. Should you wish to, we will attempt to book you into another local bed and breakfast of the same or lower Visit Britain grading in a similar standard of room(s). Should this establishment be more expensive than Barton House, we will pay the difference for the first night of your stay. Our liability will not extend beyond these conditions.

Car Parking

A car park is available for guests’ use at the front of the premises. Cars parked here are at owners risk, there are however security cameras installed for your piece on mind.

Change of Room

Damage and Breakages

Please take care of our home. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents.
