We had a short break in the Rainster cabin and I can honestly say it was the most perfect break we have ever had. Within minutes of arriving we all felt so relaxed. The scenery, location and attentiveness of David and Felicity all added to this.
Within half an hour of settling in our cabin, Felicity was asking if our eldest son wanted to join her in feeding the chickens - he returned full of chatter about feeding chickens, collecting eggs, brushing the horses and loving his farm experience. Our youngest son, who is 1 just loved the daily visits from the dogs and chickens and was so excited each morning to open the curtains and see the cows and horses in the field outside our window and the chickens wandering on the cabin lawn.
An excellent location, with lots of lovely places to visit nearby and some lovely walks. With 2 young children we mainly stuck to visiting the tourist attractions rather than walking the trails - but we did visit Ilam Park and walk through Dovedale which was lovely. At least this means we have an excuse to go back and do all the things we never had time to do! There are also some excellent pubs nearby serving great food and a good sized supermarket down the road in Matlock for those essentials.
All in all, an excellent break, the most perfect location to relax and unwind and brilliant accommodation. Everything is thought of, fresh linen and towels, well stocked kitchen with all the utensils you could ever need and books, games and DVDs to keep everyone entertained.
The welcome pack with fresh homemade bread, milk, fresh eggs (which make the most amazing scrambled eggs) and homemade biscuits really is a treat.
Perfect. Simply perfect.
