Hotels in Matlock

Matlock occupies an enviable position at the south-eastern edge of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. A former spa town, Matlock once attracted hordes of visitors keen to enjoy its thermal pools. Today it serves as a convenient base for people looking to explore the many natural sights and attractions in the surrounding area. We have a range of Matlock hotels available here on the website, each one close to the heart of the action.

Local attractions

Matlock is surrounded by the beauty of the Derbyshire Dales and it makes complete sense to get out into the countryside during your visit. It takes a matter of minutes to reach the Peak District by car, where there are many opportunities to get active. With 65 miles of off-road cycle trails, plenty of rock climbing hotspots, walking routes such as the Pennine Way and many more activities to try, there truly is something for everyone to enjoy.

Of course you don't need to leave Matlock to enjoy some fresh air. Hall Leys Park actually lies within the centre of town and is bordered by the River Derwent. Stretch your legs along one of the riverside walking trails, make use of the park's tennis courts and skateboard park, or perhaps hire a boat and venture out onto the lake.

Head a few miles south of Matlock to reach Matlock Bath, home to attractions including the Peak District Mining Museum, which explores the area's industrial heritage. Gulliver's Kingdom, a family theme park aimed at younger children, is also just a short distance from the town.

The National Tramway Museum at Crich offers the chance to ride on a working tram and view the largest collection of vintage electric trams in Britain. Keen gardeners will adore Lea Gardens, where you have the opportunity to stroll through three acres filled with rhododendrons, azaleas, kalmias and numerous other plants and shrubs. Chatsworth House, a 35,000-acre estate located about half an hour from Matlock, is another of the area's top attractions and is certainly worth the drive.


There's a great mix of independent retailers and brand name stores dotted throughout the centre of Matlock. Dale Road, Bakewell Road, Bank Road and Firs Parade all have an excellent selection of shops, from fashion boutiques and gift shops through to antique stores and bookshops.

Peak Shopping Village, located roughly five miles to the north of Matlock, is home to an even greater selection of outlets. Here you'll find everything from fashion items and accessories, to homeware, gifts and outdoor clothing.
