“The hot tub rocks!”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I booked the Mews for a girls weekend away, with the hot tub being our main lure! And we were not disappointed! The hot tub comfortably fitted all 7 of us. The cottage is beautifully decorated and so homely. The photographs really do not do it justice- it's much bigger than I expected. We are all already considering booking our next trip with husbands and partners. Simply can't fault it. Brilliant!

“Wonderful property, friendly owners”
Reviewed June 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

beautiful property! The photos do not really do it justice. Well equipped and in a picturesque setting. We loved the hot tub with its lovely outlook. The owners Phillipa and Julian could really not have been more hospitable or helpful during our stay. The local pub,The Red Lion, which is 10 mins walk away serves good food and is very friendly. A slightly longer stroll takes you to the Saracens Head which is a gastropub well worth a visit. Close by,Ashbourne is a nice market town with some great shops and cafes. We will definitely return!

“wonderful home from home”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Home from home ~ I wish my home was like The Mews or The Retreat which we also rented for our group.
Beautifully finished accommodation, a kitchen with everything we needed, a lovely lounge, nice bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 with ensuite shower rooms & a lovely house bathroom.
We loved the hot tub facing the field with the friendly sheep that were fairly interested in us humans especially if we had bread & gorgeous lambs frolicking about.
One of our group was in a wheelchair & The Retreat was perfect all on one level.
The weather was mixed, but the Sunday was sunny & warm, some of us went to nearby Alton Towers with the rest relaxing in the hot tub & on the back terrace.
The Red Bull within walking distance is friendly with a good reasonable menu, they also have a good range in pies.
The owners Philippa & Julian were lovely & very helpful :)

We've just come back from a weekend at The Mews and we absolutely loved it. Philippa and her family are the perfect hosts - they make you feel so welcome and then leave you to enjoy your time at the cottage.
All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the hot tub is the perfect way to finish the day. The only regret is that we didn't stay longer ! We'll definitely be back and will recommend highly to family and friends.

“Beautiful cottage for a quiet, relaxing escape”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We recently stayed at the Mews in Hollington. Its was very easy to get to with a sat nav, making the journey there completely pleasant. When we walked into the cottage there was a real "wow" factor as the converted barn has a warm but open feeling as you walk in. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans and general equipment, and there was a jug of milk left for us on entry and some yummy crumpets. We though the lounge area was lovely - a lovely room with seating and dining space for 8 people, although the dining table was in a slightly cramp position. There was a lovely feature fireplace with gas powered fire making the cottage have a very cozy feel. There are enough "real" beds for 6 people, 2 double and 1 twin, but there are also at least 3 temporary beds, leaving plenty of room for plenty of people. The upstairs double bed is a particularly lovely room. The hot tub is excellent - plenty of space for all of us to get in, and quite advance in terms of features with various levels of bubble settings. the hot tub is set on a lovely patio with a table for dining al fresco, and overlooking a lovely back yard filled with sheep and phesants.
A great cottage for a quiet relaxing escape, not suitable for those looking for a bit of a party cottage, as there isn't a town to be seen within a 20min drive. Walking in the surround area is fairly flat, but there are (very muddy when we were there) bridle paths around. The cottage is on the edge of the beautiful peak district so you don't have to go far for a more adventurous and glorious countryside. Perfect for those looking to really relax for the weekend.

What a place!! Superbly decorated to really high standard. Everything we needed and more. Very comfortable indeed. The hot tub is such a special advantage of this property compared to others. Was within easy reach for walking in the area.

Would highly recommend this to anyone.

“The Perfect Weekend Away Ever .... please let me live there!!!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Me and my 6 friends went to cottage to celebrate my friends 21st birthday and we had the best weekend ever! I can not even start to describe to you all how amazing the cottage was. We hadn’t even left and we were already trying to plan when we would be going back!
Phillippa was absolutely fantastic even before we got there every silly little question she answered and as a super over organised person it put me at ease.
The photos on here don’t even show you have gorgeous the cottage is! We all want to win the lottery and buy it now!! The lounge was great for all of us to congregate at night and chill out! The kitchen was great we cooked for ourselves almost all weekend and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. All of the bedrooms were gorgeous and so comfy and what can I say about that gorgeous bath tub!! It is the most gorgeous cottage with all the bare beams it is absolutely gorgeous!
We even decorated the lounge area and threw a surprise Big Bang Theory Party for the birthday girl and it looked great!
All the animals on the grounds were great we love Neil and Amber the sheep! We love the cat coming to say hello on a morning and the dogs were gorgeous.
We were very lucky to have gorgeous warm weather so we spent all weekend in the gorgeous hot tub drinking lots of champagne! It was the perfect last touch to the cottage and we have all agreed to go back as soon as possible.
We went to The Red Lion pub where we had a gorgeous pub meal and great service! We especially loved the traditional phone box in the village where it was stocked with books that you could borrow!!
Thank you for a great weekend Phillippa and we can’t wait to come back!!!
