“Perfect place to relax in comfort.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Henmore Grange is a really comfortable, well equipped cottage in a lovely tranquil village.
The amenities and decor at the cottage were first class,and having 3/4 rooms with ensuites was a real plus.
There were great walks in the area, some of which could be done directly from the cottage.
We were lucky with the weather and the area was shown off to best advantage.
Definately a consideration for a return visit.

“Lovely cottage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Stayed at Henmore Grange in early May. On the whole we were pleased with the cottage. It's been nicely furnished and was immaculately clean. It was a luxury to have a bathroom allocated to each bedroom and the cottage feels really spacious.
It's in a good location to get to numerous local towns and attractions and there are pleasant walks to be had right from the front door.

A couple of downsides:
The wifi was terrible. On arrival we learnt that it only works in the living room (annoying) and even then it was patchy to say the least. One evening it took an hour to connect, and twice we could only get a connection with the laptop on the floor. Lack of wifi wouldn't usually bother me but two of us needed to be connected for work and personal reasons that week and it was one of the reasons we booked the cottage in the first place. I would suggest that the owners stop advertising wifi or else improve it.

The other (slight) disappointments were the lack of views from the cottage. There is a slight view through the trees of carsington water from the parking area but none from the cottage itself. And the cottage backs onto a road so you do get the sound of passing traffic. It didn't bother us but it might if you want to retreat from noise completely!

On the whole I would certainly recommend the cottage as a lovely home from home and a good base for exploring the peak district.
