My husband myself and our two children stayed at Anvil cottage for 5 days and we couldn't of been more happier with our time spent there. We were overwhelmed by how welcomed we were made to feel and how beautiful and homely the cottage was. The cottage is in a beautiful location we traveled around 20 mins to get to places we wanted to visit ,dovedale ravine ,carsington water and alton towers are brilliant places to visit and all within a half an hour drive from the cottage. we came home from our holiday very happy and would highly recommend anvil cottage to anyone wanting to stay in that area.
We stayed as a couple in the cottage for a late Easter break, predominantly as a base to visit a stately home or two and for walking. The welcome pack was a nice touch, we arrived a bit later than expected, so it was great not to have to go in search of supplies on arrival, there was even a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge. It was lovely to warm our tired feet by the log burner, everything was provided and it was really easy to light. The combined cooker / dishwasher was a novelty! (even the dishwasher tablets were provided) and the sheltered patio catches the afternoon / evening sun.
The main bedroom was lovely, a really comfortable bed and the rooms are bigger than they look in the pictures. The 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed, some of the ceilings are a bit low in places, not that that bothered us. The village shop is a 10 minute stroll along the lane or you can take the footpath as a shortcut across the fields. We also had a great curry at ‘The Barn’ which has a locals bar at the back. Again, this is only a 10 minute stroll (in the opposite direction), but as the pavement is a bit sporadic so a torch is recommended.
We had a really relaxing time, Charlotte & Adam were lovely hosts and were happy to advise us on great places to eat en route to the places we were visiting. I would definitely recommend this as a great location for walking, cycling & relaxing.
