“Mrs”
Reviewed January 3, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Me and my husband were ready for a little break after the Christmas period and stopped here for one night. The cottage is beautiful and cosy and there is everything you need and more.. Lindsey the owner gives it a real personal touch. Lovely toiletries, lovely bedding and towels. Lindsey also put a pint of milk in the fridge and left us a beautiful cake which was to die for.. There is a local pub just minutes away with roaring fire and friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend any one to come and visit here, and we are already planning going again very soon.. Thank you Lindsey our stay was wonderful..

“Excellent cottage!!”
Reviewed November 26, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

What a lovely little cottage in a perfect location as a base for exploring the local area. The cottage was just right for two people. The milk, eggs and cake left for us were a wonderful added touch and were much appreciated.
Thanks for a wonderful weekend break!

“Cosy and Restive”
Reviewed October 29, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We loved staying at Townsend cottage. It was very cosy and restful. There were delightful welcoming staples (eggs, milk and cake), luxurious toiletries, and very good selections of both books and DVDs. It was great to have chickens and horses just out back from the cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our restful stay, and hope to return annually.

“Homely cottage with great views”
Reviewed October 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Myself and my husband stayed for 3 nights as a relaxation retreat before our baby is born in January. We had read the reviews on this site prior to booking and with the price it was the only choice for us. I'm so glad we did stay here as it was everything we needed. Lindsey had baked a cake and left fresh eggs and milk for us which was a lovely touch. We are not big walkers (great area for walking even still) we found that the location was perfect for our needs which was visiting Matlock and Bakwell for tea and scones. I would recommend this cottage as a short getaway gem whatever your reason may be :)

“Superb Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed September 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our second visit to this delightful cottage. Townend cottage is a lovely cosy cottage in a small attractive village. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need and is very clean. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed with quality bedding and pillows. The bathroom has a great range of toiletries. The owner, Lindsey has thought about her guest needs, she leaves a welcome pack in the cottage and this includes a yummy home made cake. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. We are looking forward to our next visit.
