The Temple in Matlock Bath, in the Peak District, sleeps 34 people in 15 bedrooms, has two hot tubs, a games room and two bars with elegant furnishings and decor.
The former Georgian Grade II listed hotel was renovated in 2019 and is set in 2 acres of hills in the historic spa village.
The game room/pub has its own pool table as well as table tennis, air hockey, piano and a 6-speaker karaoke machine with lights.
It also has an open fire, a log basket provided for the first time, and a large bar with bottle fridge, so guests can have a pub night without leaving the property.
Upstairs, in the first floor south wing, there is a large kitchen with two gas ovens and hob, three dishwashers, two microwaves, two kettles, two toasters, two washing machines and two American fridge/freezers.
The kitchen is located opposite the dining room, also known as Byron’s room, which has plenty of seating for all guests and offers views of Reaper’s Castle, limestone cliffs, the River Derwent and the village below.
The room is named after Lord Byron, one of several high-ranking historical guests at The Temple.
The poet who seems to have been “so moved by his stay” that he etched a poem on the dining-room window.
The young Queen Victoria also inked the same plate as a young princess during her visit.
Adjacent to the Byron room is a warm and cozy room with comfortable seating and a smart TV/DVD.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the lounge bar, another place for guests to enjoy a drink during their stay, which also has its own glass fridge.
This bar is connected to the main lounge, which also has seating for everyone and has a wall of glass windows that offer panoramic views of the cliffs and river below.
It also has a large smart TV, Bluetooth/USB/DAB/CD music system and a wood burning stove, which is where the first basket of records was made.
All 15 bedrooms contain at least a king-size bed, although some also hold super kings.
Bedroom 13 is a family room with a king size bed and two additional single beds.
All rooms have luxurious en-suite showers or baths, while some have massage jet showers installed as well. All bedrooms also have televisions.
There is also a main garden with two hot tubs amidst the wonderful scenery. Outdoor dining is also possible during the warmer months, with two charcoal grills on site.
The temple is ideal for large groups looking for “heaps of space” and “the freedom to do their own thing” before exploring the Peak District.
There is off road parking for up to 20 cars in the car park opposite and in the large adjacent car park to the side.
The property is in a great location for families, with Gulliver’s Kingdom, the Peak District Mining Museum, Aquarium and Arcade just a short drive away.
Those who have stayed at the temple rated it highly, with one guest recently saying: “A wonderful property in a great location.
“It really is the perfect place for a group meeting.”
