We stayed at Rock House Farm in Dormouse cottage and have to say it was brilliant. The cottage was immaculate and everything was there that we needed even a play area at the back of the cottages for our youngest (although I think he preferred playing with Max the dog).
Very peaceful setting as well which was just what we needed after spending 2 very hectic days at Alton Towers.
Would definately recommend the cottages as a base for exploring the area. We will definately be back - maybe just the two of us this time as it is a perfect place to unwind.
