We were met on arrival by Patricia who was very welcoming and friendly, she showed us to our room and explained how everything worked and was so helpful. The room was large, immaculately clean and very comfortable with all the amenities you... More

We booked this cottage at the very last minute without reading much of the reviews and concentrating rather on the pictures and descriptions of the B&B (as you do when you have already set out on your journey). A long - but ever so enjoyable - drive up from London through some great scenery in the Peak District got us... More

After spending so much time in faceless hotel chains this is a oasis in the desert. Only 10 mins from the motorway and 15/20 mins from from the heart of the Peak District.

We have been meaning to leave a review for a while but just haven't got round to it, sorry Paddy! We stayed at the cottage early December and had a fantastic time. Our host was the perfect balance of friendliness and tentativeness, whilst never intrusive, she offered great advice of the local area, which only heightened our experience. It was... More

Thank you so much for your kind review, I assure you it means a lot. I very much hope to welcome you back before too long. A note of warning to future guests due to the lack of fruit in the autumn of 2013 sadly I have no liquers to offer my guests this year. Kind regards Paddy More

I am glad that virtually everything met with your approval. With regards to not serving breakfast I apologise yet again, however perhaps you can appreciate that I work hard and very long hours and do have to draw the line somewhere and quite honestly at this time of year I am more than a little tired.

Patricia MacKinnon, the proprietor, has built a b&b that exceeded all of our expectations. She, as others have stated, provides those very special and unexpected extras upon arrival and in your room. A perfectly comfortable king sized bed, very new large bath and ample storage. Our sleep was the best in an entire week of traveling throughout the UK. Very... More

We arrived at the b&b at the earliest permitted check in time of 5pm (!) and found the room to be immaculate with a big bed and lovely little extras.
