200 characters is hardly enough to do justice to this wonderful cottage, it's tranquil setting, the courteous and professional service from the owners and the level and quality of equipment provided for your stay...
Simply to say thank you Vicki, for setting such exemplary high standards that would be the envy of others - you turned what could have been an average holiday into a truly memorable one for all of us.
We hope to come back!

Excellent, the cottage has everything you need and more for the perfect holiday. Set in beautiful surroundings. Plenty of walking right on the doorstep. Even Ellie our border collie made friends with the dogs opposite. A very relaxing stay. We will definitely be back.

“Perfect cottage in lovely setting.”

Such a pretty little cottage a lot longer than it is wide. So comfortable and cosy I felt really sad when we had to leave. I loved the open fire and how well equipped the cottage is. There are even cool bags and ice packs etc if you want to go on a picnic. Everything in the kitchen was good quality and made the holiday stress free. Thank you for the welcome pack it was so nice to have some fresh bread and tea bags whilst we waited for our shopping to be delivered. Loved the walk to Dovedale and the stream felt so lucky staying in such a beautiful location and hope to come back soon. Many thanks for a perfect holiday )

“Home from home”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Brilliantly equipped cottage - there was absolutely nothing I missed from home. Located in a really lovely part of the world, a stones throw from the start of the Milldale to Dovedale walk, a relatively easy stroll that is well worth doing. Do try The George in nearby Alstonefield for a great pint/meal (booking recommended).

This was our second stay at this wonderful comfortable cottage. The cottage is well equipped, clean and spacious, and in a beautiful location. Very easy to book and deposit returned promptly. Perfectly situated for exploring surrounding areas with some lovely walks on the doorstep.

“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

The cottage is fantastic. Ideally situated just outside the famous Peak District village of Milldale. The cottage is really well equipped, cosy and perfect for a short break. There is only one bathroom and bedrooms 2 and 3 are small but these are easily managed.

The cottage is characterful and surrounded by magnificent, peaceful and staggeringly beautiful countryside.

The welcome pack of wine, tea, coffee, butter, marmalade and cheese was the icing on the cake.

Would definitely look to visit again.
