Our stay at Cambridge Lodge was brilliant. From the time we got there with the welcome hamper of food and wine, to the Easter eggs that our host, Lisa, had hidden around the place for our son to have an Easter egg hunt, it was brilliant. I have never stayed in such a well appointed and superbly maintained property. The owner, Lisa met us when we got there and showed us around, explaining how things worked and a little bit of history of the place, and was always on hand throughout the stay if we needed her as she lived on the farm about 5 minutes away. Before we got there she said to pack lightly as there was everything we'd need in the lodge, and she was right.. there was. Detergents, sauces, herbs, condiments, sharp knives (something that never exists in holiday lets! ) and even a slow cooker.
The property itself is amazing, but does have limited headroom in a section downstairs, you just duck your head when you are there as it's part of the quirkiness of living in such a property. I'm 6ft tall and I didn't hit my head once, I just remembered to duck!
I've stayed in many holiday homes over the years, in both this country and USA, both modern and quirky, but this has to be the best by far. Lisa said she wanted to do the job properly and she's certainly done that, I'd thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in this area, it's lovely and quiet, good links to the main roads and nearby Matlock Bath and has plenty of walks in the immediate vicinity if you just fancy an afternoon or evening stroll.
