Welcome to 22


’22’ is a two-bedroomed stone terrace house located on the hill above Matlock and with fantastic views towards Riber Castle and Matlock Bath.  The house has been home to members of our family for over 100 years, and most recently belonged to our Auntie Nellie and Uncle Bob – hence the website name!

When Auntie Nellie died in 2010, just short of her 100th birthday, we decided to renovate the house and keep it in the family.  We tried to do as much of the work as possible ourselves – finding lost features and uncovering layers of the house’s history (including some interesting wallpaper patterns and terrible paint effects!) – and now that it’s finished we enjoy spending weekends and holidays there and sharing it with family and friends.
