“Love it!!!”
Reviewed November 23, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just returned from another perfect visit to this delightful cottage which is so centrally located in the southern Peak District in the village of Hartington and next to a delightful village pub which serves excellent food so I didn't cook all week. The cottage has every thing you need, is very well equipped (if you are inclined to cook), warm and cosy to return to after a days walking, biking or sightseeing whatever the weather. If you are walkers you would be able to stay for a long weekend without moving the car as there are endless footpaths in every direction. If you stayed for longer you could still leave the car behind and catch the bus.There is a separate laundry room should you need it and a TV room shared with 2 other cottages if a group want to get together to watch sport etc. It is spotlessly clean, the owner and caretaker are a phone call away should there be issues and once you have settled in one of them visit to make sure everything is OK. We cannot fault this cottage and will continue to book if it is free when we wish to visit following the glowing reports it gets.

Dove Cottage provides an excellent base for a stay in the Dales. The cottage itself is well equipped and spotlessly clean. A warm greeting awaited us and the owner had left us a bottle of wine. It is clear that the owners are passionate about their properties(they have a number).
Dove Cottage is highly recommended. Thank You.

“Cosy, well equipped cottage”
Reviewed February 1, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lovely, cosy and warm cottage which is well equipped for a self catering holiday. There is sky T.V. in the cottage and both sky sports and movies in the shared entertainment room which is an added bonus. There are books to read and the owners have put together a selection of recommended walks and things to do. The owners are clearly passionate and take great pride in this high standard cottage. There's plenty of storage space and the shower is great. Not the most comfortable bed or pillows but was sufficient for our 4 night stay. There is Wifi but it has a very weak signal, also parking is very tight so be careful when pulling in and out. There are some fantastic walks close by in the beautiful village of Hartington which is full of character. Buxton is only a 20 minute drive away and there's plenty to do. (I would highly recommend Poole's Cavern). This cottage is ideal for a quite break with outstanding scenery. Highly recommended!

“Lovely relaxing holiday”
Reviewed November 27, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just the place for a autumn break.
We spent 3 nights here in November, walking during the day and relaxing during the evening. Dove Cottage gave us the perfect location.
Hartington is beautiful and the surrounding countryside is awesome. We just did local walks of about 5 miles, but these were challenging for us inexperienced walkers.
The cottage had everything we needed, it was warm and cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped with good quality saucepans etc. The laundry room was very welcome to was our clothes after our walks and the massive airing cupboard meant clothes dried quickly.
As mentioned the parking space is interesting, parking sensors had a field day.
We didn't use the newly fitted television room, but could see that would be a good social venue.
All in all a lovely stay.

“Excellent accommodations and location”
Reviewed November 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed here for a week, using Hartington as a base for walks in the Peak District National Park. The location was excellent, providing easy access to many walks. The unit was perfect for my needs. A very comfortable queen bed, a fully equipped kitchen, a large bath for soaking in after a long day's walk, and a great downstairs living room with Sky TV. There was off-street parking (a little tricky to access, but pretty easy to get the hang of). The owner has stocked the cottage with numerous materials on local walks, in case you've come unprepared. WiFi is a little sketchy - it helps to be on the far side of the cottage. There is a store across the street which can provide you with your grocery (and beer) essentials. I definitely hope to come here again (and with luck my wife will be able to join me next time)!

“Lovely homely place with everything you need”
Reviewed December 22, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Lovely place with all the mod cons you would need for a weekend or a week away in the Peak District. Ideal location for walkers or people wanting a quite get away, but only a short drive from Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock.
