Mike ( the proprietor) was very welcoming, and very helpful. Our room, the Dovedale, was beautifully presented, very comfortable, and the attention to detail was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and would definitely stay here again. We can highly recommend Thorpe cottage, as a delightful place to take a relaxing break.

Myself and my sister visited for a quiet break away from city life and very much enjoyed our stay here. Attentive hosts and beautifully presented, clean rooms. We could not have asked for a better stay and would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Thorpe Country Cottage is beautifully & tastefully furnished throughout and was the perfect choice of accommodation for our weekend away as we celebrated a family wedding. The cottage was spotlessly clean & our room (Bakewell) was well equipped & very comfortable. The breakfast table was beautifully laid out in readiness for the wonderful breakfast to follow.

This place is dreamy! Great location for walking, really clean and homely, and the breakfast is amazing! My only very slight issue is that there's no phone signal and no wifi to compensate for that, but all in all it was fantastic!

Our family visited last year and the property is lovely, with Mike and Heather as gracious hosts. The meals they serve are delicious and plentiful. Can't say enough about the location with the beautiful hills to explore.

Would I stay there again? No - I found it a very frustrating place for a number of reasons and was really surprised about the rating it had achieved. They never seem to answer the phone, so had to book through booking.com which I am not a fan of, having had costly problems with it previously. These are my comments...

A great place to relax and unwind. We had a lovely private room and en suite with stunning views at the top of the house which was always immaculate when we returned each day. The breakfasts were delicious even including home made bread. Hope to go back one day.
