“Perfect location for exploring locally or further into the Peak District”
Reviewed May 7, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The accomodation was perfect for 3 couples, each room was spacious, with comfy beds, and the size of the lounge, dining table and kitchen meant we could all hang out, eat and cook together, without getting in one another's way.

The house had everything we needed and it was so nice that the basics were there to get the holiday started, such as spare loo roll, hand soap and bin bags - little things I know, but they make a difference!

From the property it's really easy to get to Froghall Wharf; where loads of different circular and linear walks start. We explored this area around the canals, river, railway and woodlands, and would highly recommend others do the same. It's easy, beautiful walking - with pubs en-route.

We'll be back again!

“Home from Home !”
Reviewed February 12, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Brilliant 3 bedroom cottage, roomy and comfortable. Spotlessly clean, really well equipped, comfortable beds, quiet and private location....slept like a log !!. I rented the cottage whilst working in the area for 3 weeks and couldn't have picked a better place. Had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Loads of outside space with plenty of private parking. The standard of fittings and equipment is way above the normal holiday cottage, and I have rented many over the years. Good pub providing excellent meals just over the road, two good supermarkets within ten minutes drive but the cottage itself in a quiet scenic spot. A steam train chugs past the back garden at weekends, possibly more often during the summer ?. I honestly could not fault the house at all, fantastic value for money, I will be back, hopefully with the family next time.

“A brilliant home for the week. Clean, comfortable, good location.”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great week visiting various attractions. 8-10 minutes by car to Alton Towers although still go early and well before 10am opening otherwise a 10 minute trip can turn into an hour sitting in queues to get in to the car park. Hawthorn Park Follies definately worth a trip and great for the dogs. Next door to the Churnet Valley Steam Train Station which was another attraction we could tke the dogs.
The house was perfect for our family of 5 and two dogs to call home for the week. We cooked, ordered take aways and had some lovely meals in near by pubs and restaurants. There were plenty of leaflets in the house for things to do and places to eat. A lovely touch were the towels in the utility room especially for the dogs.
Considering it is rented to visitors with pets, the house was very clean and well maintained.
Excellent value for money.

“Perfect cottage for family to visit Alton Towers and surrounding location.”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This cottage was in the perfect location for our family holiday consisting of mainly visiting Alton Towers and the Water park - ten minutes away on quiet roads. Cottage was spacious, well presented, lovely views and great garden with bbq. Couldn't fault it except for one thing the drive to the cottage is on a very steep hill with a very awkward, practically blind access onto a fast road at times, Easily solved however with a mirror across the road to aid the driver in getting out. Then it really would be 100% perfect. Great memories :)
