“Ideal location for the Peak District”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A lovely cottage ideal for couples to use as a base. Cosy surroundings and all the amenities you require. Close to the village pub which has an extensive menu and serves excellent food at a good price ( would recommend the Barnsley Chop).

“Perfect cottage for a romantic holiday”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Having been there before a few years ago, we decided to go again for our honeymoon. Perfect place to relax or take a walk from the front door and a lovely garden to sit in for breakfast in the sun. It has one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. Shower a bit disappointing but the bath makes up for it.

“Lovely cottage for a relaxing break”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was a lovely and very tidy little cottage. My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy life and wanted to be out in the countryside where we could walking and relax! This cottage certainly provided that. Its 5 miles from Bakewell and close to Chatsworth so most things were in easy reach. A bottle of Prosecco was presented upon arrival. The only thing is the boiler is in a cupboard in the bedroom and was a little noisy, but not noisy enough to prevent me from going back. Had a lovely time!

Owner comments:- We always leave sparkling wine for an arrival toast while you settle in and start relaxing. The electric central heating boiler is really quiet whilst operating and the programmable timer is set to off during sleeping hours, so its then silent.

“Absolutely Lovely, everything you could need including a quality local pub”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Had a long weekend at the cottage with my partner to chill out. Lovely cottage, very warm and welcoming when we arrived and as we looked around the cottage we had big smiles on our faces. The local pub is excellent, open fire and quality wines and beer; had a meal there one night, I had the t bone steak which is amazing but couldn't eat anything else on my plate because it was so big.... just great home cooked food.
I would have given this cottage 5 stars except for the shower which is very slow and also a bit unpredicatable..... not a big problem for us but I just wanted to explain why I hadn't given 5 stars.

“Really lovely location and place to stay”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed for a post Christmas break and this place was perfect. Quiet, located in a peaceful area but close to Bakewell with plenty of walks from the doorstep. From the moment we arrived we felt ourselves unwind, and enjoyed a visit to the local pub which served tasty homemade food on our first evening.

The accommodation is clean, cosy, quiet and warm, and on arrival we enjoyed a complimentary bottle of bubbly. Its well stocked with all you would need and we have already recommended it to friends.

We cant really fault this place!.
