“Perfect for a relaxed bank holiday weekend”
Reviewed May 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Very comfortable, clean, peaceful, well equipped with loads of books, games and DVDs. Lovely welcome with fresh cakes. Ideal for the two of us for our two night stay for a friend's birthday party nearby. Thanks for the hospitality.

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful area”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage was very clean with everything we needed there for us. Fantastic views from the house and good walking straight from the door which was great. Alick and Helen were really helpful in planning routes and the cottage had plenty for us to do with books, a TV and board games.
I would definitely return!

“Absolutely perfect - cosy, warm, welcoming, high quality furnishings and stunning location”
Reviewed February 17, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Clough Head Cottage. Helen and Alick were the perfect hosts and greeted us with a really warm welcome when we arrived. The cottage is beautifully, immaculately presented and clearly loved by them, so every detail is thought of. We really liked that the house is run by biomass and solar energy, and the stove heater is run using recycled wood pellets. The cleaning products were Method or Ecover brands, which are non-toxic and not animal tested, something we strongly support. We had a 5 month old baby with us who settled in instantly, playing on her play mat nestled in the fluffy rugs around the cottage. The bookcase is stuffed full of novels, wildlife guides, maps, books about the Peak District and leaflets of things to do in the area. There's an extensive 'what to do/where to go' guide made by the cottage owners so whatever the weather you're in for a treat. We were blessed with beautifully clear, cold days so had blue skies and a sprinkling of snow which made the place totally magical. The cottage is on the edge of a valley that has breathtaking views - the backdrop of Chrome Hill is awe inspiring. We walked a 5K route from the cottage through the meadowy valley and then over Chrome Hill, with stunning views. The next day we drove to Macclesfield Forest which is a draw to cyclists and walkers. Here you can roam the forest and moorland and soak in the tranquility. We stayed at Clough Head Cottage for 3 nights and loved coming back to and waking up there each day. Good, fast WiFi meant we were able to watch Netflix in the evenings and play games from their boardgame selection too. The furnishings are gorgeous and it really felt like home. Having a 5 month old baby was a breeze - the cottage is very accessible and has a great hot water & heating system that kept us warm throughout. We'll definitely be back :)

“Fantastic get away!”
Reviewed November 13, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had the most wonderful half term break at Clough head cottage. The cottage was very warm and cosy. Alick and Helen have thought of everything to help make the stay comfortable with lots of great personal touches. Our 2 young children ( aged 6 and 10) totally loved it. They especially loved pottering around the cottage, chatting to Helen and helping to feed the local donkeys and goats belonging to the neighbour ( who was also very friendly). The views from the cottage were stunning and we visited some fabulous places including Buxton, Bakewell, Chatsworth, Speedwell caverns and Castleton. The Monsal cycle trail was incredibly beautiful which we were able to enjoy as a whole family. All in all we didn't really want to leave as there were still more walks we wanted to do and places to visit.

“Peace and panoramic views amongst the Peaks - perfect!”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Wonderful Peak District scenery surrounds this attractive holiday retreat. Local farms, with cattle and sheep roaming, give a real taste of everyday life. There are walks to suit every ability, but the 'up hill down dale' walks are spectacular - we particularly enjoyed Cheedale, which is part of the Wye Valley. Just a few miles away are the famous towns of Bakewell, and the beautiful Spa town of Buxton (a visit to the Opera House Pavillion is a must).
The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and well equipped. It is warm, cosy and very comfortable.
Helen and Alick have thought of everything - they are the nicest people, and perfect hosts.
