Fantastic weekend in Matlock – Lolo’s Review

8th August 2014 by  in Accommodation Reviews

We road some spectacular roads into the High peak stopping for the most hilarious talk and boat ride into the lead mines at speed well cavern. We then road some beautiful roads include the via Gellia through Matlock to our B&B, Riverbank Guest House.

We were greeted with a nice welcome and the owner moving their car so the bikes had a safe place for the night. Once unpacked we walking into Matlock where there was plenty of places to eat, from Italian, English, Chinese, to plenty of takeaways and a few inviting pubs.

As the weather was so nice we decided to have a picnic in the park next to the river then returned to the B&B and had a well-earned glass of wine in their lovely garden. The room was clean and bright with everything you need from tea making facilities, TV, shower, hue windows and ceiling fan. The breakfast was great and staff very attentive.

The B&B is so close to many of the peak districts attractions that we managed to stop at the steam trains, Haddon hall, Chatworth house and a visit to the museum and village at Eyam on our way home.

All in all a lovely relaxing weekend away, thanks again to Jennie, Graham and Shelley at Riverbank and to all at MotoGoLoco for our prize!
