We are situated on the A6, 18 miles north of Derby. Follow the brown signs from junction 28 on the M1 and the A6 approach roads, north or south. Unfortunately, due to the Heights being situated on a steep hilltop, we do not have our own car park. The closest car park is the train station car park, which is operated by the council.
During the school holidays, the car parks can get very busy, alternative car parking can be found at the Temple car park or Artists Corner car park. Please note, as Matlock Bath is a small village in the middle of the countryside, the pay and display machines are coin only, so don’t forget your change! For more information about parking please see the Derbyshire Dales District Council website.
