Little Larsas Retreat is situated in a beautiful and ideal location for visiting the many attractions the Peak District has to offer. Chatsworth House is only a 15 minute drive away and Alton Towers is within good driving distance. Walkers can enjoy all levels of walks; along trails, across peaks and dales or even over rugged moorland. The adventurous are spoilt for choice; ballooning, rock climbing and canoeing are to name but a few, whilst families can adventure down caves, view the scenery from high above in a cable car or even zip wire through the tree tops! If that all sounds like too much, we have many quaint villages, farmers markets and antique shops to wander around and there's always the option to just simply sit back on the terrace with a glass of wine and a good book and enjoy the far reaching views of the valley and beyond.

The interior is full of Modern Vintage Style. Vintage finds sit along cherry picked pieces making a fun, fresh and relaxed interior. The property includes plenty of original features; cornices, ceiling roses and sash windows, which are all complimented with cheery English Heritage fabrics and wallpapers. The combined effect is stylish, homely and welcoming.

Upon your arrival you will be welcomed with afternoon tea. Enjoy homemade scones and strawberry jam preserve, all topped with delicious local dairy clotted cream. You'll also be welcomed with fresh flowers, soft music and cosily lit rooms, ensuring you will instantly feel at home. You will find your beds beautifully dressed with freshly laundered, pure Egyptian Cotton and each guest will find a home made gift in their room to welcome them. After a good night's sleep couples can enjoy coffee in bed, as the main bedroom provides facilities.

THE HEART OF ENGLAND / PEAK DISTRICT / DERBYSHIRE REGION...The scenery around Matlock is magnificent. Originally a hamlet with one of only a few crossing points along the length of the River Derwent which carves its way through a ridge of limestone just south of Matlock in order to reach the lower ground to the South. This part of the valley is spectacular, steep-sided, winding and wooded, with high cliffs such as High Tor towering above attracting many rock-climbers, walkers, fishermen and bird-watchers. Some of this dale is a National Nature Reserve representing some of the best examples of wildlife habitat and geology in the White Peak area of Derbyshire being renowned for its range of rare flowers, otters and buzzards. The area is perfect to explore on foot or cycle. The Peak District is a walker's paradise. We are extremely fortunate to live in one of the many beautiful parts and within a stones throw are stunning walks by the river.

All within an easy drive are Matlock Bath, Chatsworth Stately Home, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Youlgreave, Spa town of Buxton and the whole of The Peak District National Park on your doorstep.

"The best staycation we've had!"

We've had a brilliant holiday staying at Little Lhasas Retreat in Derbyshire. On arrival we were welcomed by the owner who made us feel instantly relaxed after a long journey. The property is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and we settled in instantly. Debbie was extremely helpful. We hadn't visited Derbyshire before and so her advise and help was very much appreciated. As a family with young teenagers we wanted an action packed holiday to tire them out and we got it! They were quiet as lambs in the evenings!! The property is ideally located for all that the area offers. we were to go canoeing in Matlock and horse riding just outside in Darley Dale. Carsington Water in a great place to spend the day, with it's huge water expanse all sorts of water activities are on offer. We chose however to hire bikes and spent the day cycling.
The local pub is warm and welcoming and we spent most evenings enjoying meals there. All in all, we all agreed it was our best holiday in this country - thank you Debbie

"Beautiful views and decor"

First impressions of the apartment were that the views were stunning and the decor is gorgeous (very girly). The only negative side to the accommodation is that there is no storage in the second bedroom so had to utilise main bedroom as storage for everyone. The location itself is good although in hindsight wish we had stayed more local to Bakewell as Matlock just isn't as nice! Spent a gorgeous day at Chatsworth which is only a 10/15 minute drive away. Overall really enjoyed our stay - very clean and comfortable.

"Excellent value for money, highly recommendable."

We've stayed in many holiday lets in Britain and this has to be up there with the best for value for money. Beautifully decorated throughout and so many little extras that wouldn't usually be expected in its price bracket. Debbie, the owner couldn't do enough for us - advising us on where to dine out, helping me surprise my partner for our anniversay and her home made scones were delicious! Great location for visiting the attractions. We both love walking and so we tried a walk over Stanage Edge. Had a superb lunch at Rowleys in Baslow - quite pricey but you get what you pay for. Overall, a thoroughly memorable break.

"Love this retreat and all the little touches"

This has been so special for me and my family. Little Lhasas is so relaxing and comfy. My bed was so lush! Despite it being February we saw a beautiful sunset from the terrace - in our coats, with our champagne! We have stayed in every night to enjoy the joy of being here. We have soaked up all - candles, cremes, cakes, colours etc. etc. We went to Middleton Moor to watch the starlings and we'd recommend the Farmyard Inn in Youlgrave for a cosy atmosphere, real fire and good food.

A lovely little hideaway with fantastic views, very pretty inside.
The owners are very nice and welcome you with tea and cakes.
The directions are clear and the owner thinks of everything! there's games, books, written out walking ideas and rainy day ideas.
I would highly recommend this place :)

I'm really upset to read my guests felt the cold - I cannot bare being cold! I didn't realise they were and so I'm very upset to learn. If I'd have known I could have done something about it. It's fair of them to say it was chilly but that's no excuse. The heating was switched off during the night and from late morning until mid afternoon, but that obviously wasn't adequate. As I open all year round, during the cold months I have the heating on 24/7 and leave it up to my guests to turn down individual radiators if need be. I'm so sorry guys.
