“A beautiful cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stay at this cottage every year as we take part in the White Peak Walk (26 miles) which starts at the doorstep. The cottage is a lovely cosy place to return to - everything you could need has been provided - dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer etc. It is always spotlessly clean and the decoration is perfect - nothing too fussy but warm and welcoming. It's the perfect size for two and would make the perfect honeymoon cottage.
The only downside to the cottage is the low water pressure which makes the shower a little disappointing although, on the upside, there is no shortage of hot water.
A note of caution for anyone with mobility problems - there are steps up or down into each room so if you struggle with your knees or hips this might be an issue.

Our most frequent returning guests - we are pleased to welcome for a 5th consecutive year. Avonlea was built in 1769 and was recently completely restored by the owners Chris and Carole to achieve a 4 star Visit England rating. Unfortunately, due to its configuration, we could not make it suitable for everyone to use. We are also taking steps to improve the shower water pressure.

“Great Cottage, Great Location”
Reviewed June 22, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

2nd time at Avonlea Cottage very comfortable and clean, sitting room cosy more so with the log fire on, well stocked Kitchen, large Bedroom, and large Bathroom,nice small garden with sittig area at top over lokking fields good for alfresco breakfast. Bottle of bubbly on arrival, and thanks chris for the Flowers and the bottle of beer it went down a treat cheers. The Bulls Head about 300yds away very good meals and priced ok, large portions!. Staff friendly and real ale :). Great Location 5 Miles to Bakewell and not much further to Buxton. Lots of Walks from the Doorstep and plenty of caves and villages to explore. Will be back again this year.

We are delighted you enjoyed our hospitality and intend to return again this year to explore more of the Peak district. Many of our guests return year after year as Avonlea is centrally located with approx 50% of the Peak District National park within a 10 mile radius. So the key attractions of a holiday at Avonlea are a very comfortable cottage, village location, open countryside views with alfresco dining and all just 150 metres away from The Bulls Head Pub with its great atmosphere and suberb meals.
