Fantastic holiday home and even better garden - with room to play football, sit round fire pits and eat at the table, all at the same time. Only downside is the lack of amenities in Priestcliffe- didn't bother us, but might be a consideration.

An absolutely idyllic cottage. Beautiful location and a perfect garden for children to play in and adults to relax in. We enjoyed the fire pit (and theres also a BBQ) for dinner around the campfire. For covid reasons many of the soft furnishings were removed but it was still a tastefully furnished and comfortable cottage. Even nicer than the picturRead morees. We slept well and woke to the sound of sheep in the nearby field. You have to drive to get to shops or pubs. Perfect for long country walks. Hide

Loved the property, location and amazing garden. The owner was amazing when dealing with a issue that arose. Please note this house is very old and this needs to be taken into consideration when booking. We were very lucky to be the first to use the brand new kitchen which was spotlessly clean. The neighbours were very welcoming as were the gardeneRead morers. The best part of the property is by far the garden and outdoor fire area. Fantastic week and would definitely return. Hide

The White Cottage is a beautiful property in a very quiet Hamlet. There are plenty of walks to do nearby and its easy to get to Buxton and Bakewell.
