A house with real character, a garden providing interest for all the children, ages 7-12, and lovely relaxation for the adults. Kitchen well equipped, 3 fridges and a freezer. The conservatory is amazing, a brilliant room for family meals. Close to beautiful Dove dale. Bike hire in the village, the Manifold trail is a great ride for all the family.

Management response:

Thanks for your lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Helen

Had fantastic weekend with friends for my birthday. Spacious surroundings, excellent facilities and what a way to start the day having breakfast with the sun pouring in through a pretty amazing conservatory! Great meal at the crown - made to feel very welcome. Would definitely return!

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to post your review - we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The conservatory is wonderful - especially when the sun is shining! Regards, Helen
