Access to the garden is from the lower ground floor. The garden enjoys superb views from an elevated decking platform.

There is space outside our home for parking and we would be happy to facilitate the use of one of our cars if necessary.

Who we are

  1. We are a married couple named Owen and Lara who are looking for an opportunity to visit family in New South Wales. Lara's brother emigrated to Australia in 2008 and this will be our first visit to him - we are looking forward to it as he has been very much missed! We are looking to visit in 2011.

    We are employed in professional occupations, Owen, 29 is a civil engineer and Lara, 25 is a social worker. We enjoy meals out, pub quizzes, walking, bike riding and other outdoor pursuits. We have lived in Matlock for two years and love the peaceful lifestyle in this friendly town as well as the varied range of activities close to hand.

    We feel confident that our home is warm and welcoming for any travellers wishing to explore the beautiful countryside.
    We have one cat and we will be looking to either place her in a cattery or we would leave her here if we are swapping with other cat lovers. Naturally we would be happy to reciprocate with pet care arrangemets.
