“A Perfect Place For Short or Long Term Stay”
Reviewed May 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Enjoyed this rental very much. It was charming, clean, organized, warm on cold days, and owner had thought of everything needed to make the stay a good one.

Top floor had the two bedrooms and a powder room.
Main floor had living room, an exit to the street (with stairs), and a fireplace.
The bottom floor had the kitchen, main bathroom, and an exit to the back yard, and connected through a charming archway to the main street.
Parking was right in front of the cottage in a secure spot.

Could walk to everywhere in town, and the grocery store, takeout restaurants, regular restaurants, and the canal way were only steps away. Loved it.

Liked best: I liked the separation of space into the three floors. Easy to congregate together on the main floor.
Liked least: It would have been nice to have clearer instructions to get right to the cottage. It was a little tricky to find, but it was still better than all the other places to find in the UK. Directions were terrible overall.

“Our Home away from Home”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I booked a week in Honeysuckle Cottage as a birthday present for my wife and timed it to coincide with our wedding anniversary. Neither of us had been to the Peak District before and so we were depending almost entirely on the owner's description and guests' reviews.

Whaley Bridge itself is a nice little town at the heart of a network of canals, towpath walks and cycle routes. The locals are friendly and helpful and there is a good choice of pubs, takeaways and restaurants within easy walking distance of the cottage. This, in turn, sits right at the heart of Whaley Bridge. The head of the canal is a stone's throw away, the river Goyt even nearer.

It is an old, three-storey building but fully refurbished, well-equipped and comfortable. The kitchen opens onto a pretty courtyard with a table and chairs, which the weather was kind enough to allow us to use most mornings.

We arrived to find a (very) welcome gift of wine and chocolate. After a long drive, the complimentary tea and coffee went down equally well!

As the week went on, we found we were wonderfully well situated for access to various attractions, including the Blue John cavern at Castleton, the plague village of Eyam and the very genteel spa town of Buxton.

Honeysuckle Cottage isn't the Ritz and it doesn't pretend to be but it was our home away from home. We loved our stay there and would recommend it to anyone who can manage two flights of stairs!

“Lovely little cottage in a convenient location”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed for just a short break at the cottage and it provided everything we needed for our weekend. The owners were very helpful - doggy towel and biscuits very kind.
Have to be very honest and say the only downside for us was the stairs - the open treads were slightly scary - and would sadly prevent us from booking again.
Otherwise, great location and very nice, welcoming little cottage.

“Comfortable and cosy”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a lovely little house on three levels. It was extremely conveniently located for the train station, the town as well as walking, especially along the scenic canal. I enjoyed bakewell tarts from the Bridge bakehouse and the off licence is well stocked.

Really lovely little place, very enjoyable holiday, no negatives other than that we struggled with the heating but the fire compensated for that issue, so lovely to have that! Everything was clean and well presented - thank you!

“Sweet Cottage”

person found this review helpful

Sweet little place - in the middle of the village therefore easy for food shopping. Excellent Indian restaurant close by Zayka. 'Chippy also close (two doors away) hence smell of frying most of the time. Lovely walks and great for dogs.
Cottage is a bit awkward as kitchen and bathroom right at the bottom of the house - but details explain that.
One tip though ladies take your own hair dryer - amazingly this is not supplied!
