A beautiful roomy cottage with lovely helpful owners. They were not in your face but available whenever help was required. The location was perfect for good Peak District walking and ease of access to Whaley Bridge supermarkets and take always etc. Unfortunately, we werent allowed to bring the alpacas home with us.

The owners seemed to have thought of everything to make our visit comfortable. From blankets to keep us warm if we went outside to lots of games and books. The quality of everything was very high and we appreciated this. Also the environmentally friendly aspect of the cottage from the woodburning system to the kitchen cleaning equipment to mention Read morejust two was appreciated by us all. It has inspired us to find out more about how we can do more for the environment ourselves. Hide
