“ideal location”
Reviewed June 4, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Cottage overlooks valley, a little walk up the lane and you get a beautiful view of Wirksworth, especially light up at night. Got your own personal meadow padock, very quiet and private, perfect distance from the madding crowd but just close enough to get to the town centre. Nice walks, all amenities. Owner very receptive to suggestions and feedback. Only comment, if you don't mind the second bedroom being a walk through and having the main toilet off it, then you'll be fine. The main bedroom is lovely.

“A lovely cottage and location”
Reviewed November 22, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We spent a lovely weekend in the cottage, which with a little paddock outside was perfect for our dog to run around safely. Just 20 minutes walk from the town, the cottage was ideally situated. Thoroughly recommended.

Property as advertised. A small property but everything we needed as a couple in our sixties with 2 labradors retrievers. Would also suit a couple with young children. Comfortable, clean and quiet.
Handy having a pub with good home cooked food less than 5 minutes walk away when returning from a day's walking with our 2 dogs.
Convenient too having a large enclosed paddock to exercise them in if going off in the car touring.
Good supply of tourist info and walking guides supplied.

“Perfect for touring this area”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was a delightful well kept cottage,.
Very quiet, private and perfect for us to stay whilst touring that area.

We found the bed comfortable and because it's off the beaten track slept well.

There is alittle space outside to sit if the weathers kind.
The living room and kitchen are small but this is shown quite clearly in the pictures.
If there were more room it would have been nice to have a dishwasher, but I guess I'm spoilt. Everything inside was modern and cleaned to high standards.

Very handy having a friendly pub just 5 mins walk away.

We visited all the following

StarDisc (nearby and interesting. Picturesque location to view the area)

Chatsworth house ( we really enjoyed this trip but it is expensive, having said that I think it is one of the best stately houses we have ever visited)

Dove dale (too many tourists and noisy children)

Hardwick Manor House ( national trust staff made this a fascinating visit and one to remember)

Abraham heights ( get a wizard view without having to walk all that way )

Lumsdale valley ( we liked this walk the best, it really is a hidden gem)

All in all an excellent few days away
