This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Dove Cottage, the first in Nov 2008 when we were 2, again in April 2010 when we were 2 plus small baby and we have just had our 3rd stay now that our little girl is nearly 2 years old. The cottage is really lovely, being warm, cosy and very well presented. Everything that you could need is on hand and if you needed something I can't help but feel that Sarah (owner) would have it for you before you finished asking!
The location is excellent, you can walk or cycle straight onto the Monsal trail which takes you to Buxton or Bakwell. There is plenty of good walking off either side of the trail and there is a very pleasant walk down the village (pub, shop, cafe etc). A mere 10 minutes by car and you reach Parsly Hay with access to the High Peak and Tissington trail and bike hire on site.
All in all excellent accomodation, location and owner - you even get a free cake on your arrival which starts the inevitable Chatsworth theme to anyone's holiday in this area.
We will return!
