We had a perfect family holiday away at The White Cottage, which is even more beautiful than it already looks in the photos. In particular, the garden is a real treat to sit and relax in (particularly the covered BBQ area with the fire pit so you can still be outside when it's raining!). There are some lovely walks around Priestcliffe straight out Read moreof the door, and the stunning Monsal Dale viaduct walk is 10 mins away in the car. All in all, a perfect stay - we'll be back!

Beautiful property which is so much better than the photos, the house and gardens were perfect for a 3 generation family get together. Everything we needed was provided and more. Wonderful views and walks, very peaceful but also not far from visiting Bakewell, Buxton, Chatsworth House etc. Definitely recommend.

The perfect place for our multi-generational family get-together. Plenty of space for 8 people (although mind your heads on some of the low beams!). Beautifully furnished and very well equipped.

Nb the bottom shelf of the fridge is very fragile and falls out We loved the cottage the above is only constructive and thank you for allowing our four dogs. Please do note there is a whole in the fence on the left through which dogs could escape if they wanted to but the garden is beautiful in an enviable position.

This is a characterful old house, spacious and comfortable. The setting is lovely, with a large garden and lawn, great for families. It's a very peaceful location on a minor lane, parking for 3 cars.
