“Nice enough, but......”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Very small property, even our 18 month old baby was getting cabin fever! The sink in the bathroom was tiny, more of a hand basin that you'd expect in a cloakroom, definitely couldn't wash in it without soaking the bathroom floor. The kitchen lacked a washing machine,desperately needed after a wet bike ride!
The property was advertised as having wifi, however, this did not work for the duration of our stay, even after it had supposedly been fixed. This made planning outings very difficult.
It is stated that it is child friendly, however, there are no stair gates or baby cutlery or crockery. This would have been very handy, however, we had to purchase them from the nearby supermarket.
The mattress in the main bedroom was past its best, and could do with replacing.
On the plus side,it is in a good location for visiting the Peak District, and was a nice cosy cottage.

“good location for decent price”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Good facilities and cosy feel but bathroom was too small, wifi was not working so made improvise planning difficult. Devonshire Arms pub nearby is to be avoided if possible. Overall, decent with lovely views and great location.

Management Response
Oct 6, 2016
Thanks for the review - we are sorry about the wifi not working during your stay. This was unfortunately out of our control, as it was a BT issue and this is now resolved. As for the bathroom - no one has found it an issue until now - we know that most families prefer to have a bath and not just a shower, so we have carefully considered how we made use of the space in there and there is adequate space for whatever else anyone might wish to do in that room! The pub we have always found pleasant with good food, too - perhaps they were just having a bad day. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay.

“Excellent cottage & great location”
Reviewed October 1, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lovely cottage with everything you need in a quiet location with a pub just along the road. Only a short drive to many of the Peak Districts attractions. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

“Great Cottage”
Reviewed September 29, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lovely little cottage in a spot ideally located for the best of the Peak District. The cottage is on a dead end track so only the occasional car passes. Nice view out of the front window.

Had a lovely short stay at Candlemas Cottage - booking process very efficient and helpful. Super cottage - hope to return with our children who were on school residentials while we visited! Our dog loved the field opposite. Nice to stay somewhere with little essentials provided like coffee, milk, washing up liquid and linens.
