“Christmas at Ford Wetley Cottage”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. Have just spent a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable family Christmas here and will definitely be re-visiting. Every detail had been taken care of, even down to the Christmas Tree and decorations.

“A lovely hideaway in a snug cottage”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This is a lovely cosy cottage. It was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. When we arrived the wood burning stove had been lit and a hamper of goodies was in the kitchen.
We went for walks in the local area, which is wonderful. In the evenings we warmed ourselves by the stove, listened to music and played board games.

There are lots of visiting birds to watch out of the window, and the two ponies were a great hit with my daughter!

Good kitchen, well equipped.
Very comfortable beds.

“Cozy cottage, great location”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Nice clean, warm cottage with lots of space and amenities. We loved watching movies and playing games next to the wood burning stove. Also, great location...close proximity to The Roaches & Dovedale, and only about 45 min drive from our favourite excursion, the Mam Tor Ridgewalk...absolutely beautiful!

“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had great expectations based on previous reviews and am pleased to report that these were exceeded. Cottage has been beautifully converted from what I guess was originally stables (although don't quote me on that). Superbly decked out with all the mod cons as well as traditional features retained. Lovely welcome pack including eggs, prosecco, jams and the like. Bedrooms were comfortable and warm, lovely garden area that we all enoyed, the dogs and girls in the day time and the adults at night, with bbq/firepit and drinks in the candle light. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant, without being intrusive. They couldn't have done more to make sure we knew all the local attractions, best pubs, butchers, shops etc. All in all, the perfect spot to explore all that the area has to offer. Cannot complement the experience enough and look forward to staying again in the future.

“A perfect cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had high expectations for Ford Wetley Cottage because it looked so pretty and the reviews were so good and we certainly weren't disappointed. Louise was very friendly and helpful and made the booking and preparation for the stay hassle free. We had less than perfect weather but the fact that the cottage was so comfortable and well equipped made this much easier. All the bedrooms were roomy and ensuite and the travel cots made it well suited for a family group. The sitting room was spacious and comfortable with toys, books and games. The kitchen was more compact but very well equipped and so good to cook and eat in. The cottage, tucked away in a pretty valley with a stream and waterfall, had a secure outdoor eating area with barbecue, a grassy area and space for at least 3 cars. The Shetland ponies and the chickens would delight young children. An extremely comfortable place to stay with heaps of character in a great location.

“What a fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed March 2, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This really was a truly wonderful place to stay - we wish we had booked for a longer duration but will undoubtedly return. Full of all the luxurious home comforts you could wish for. We just relaxed for the weekend but a great base for exploring some exciting towns, quaint villages and beautiful countryside not to mention Alton Towers is just a few miles away for those looking for a more energetic stay.
