Absolutely 1st class cottage. The hosts were friendly and welcoming whilst being non intrusive. They had complied a folder in the cottage highlighting good walks/ days out as well as local pubs to eat in and also takeaways. The rooms were very clean and well maintained and we would recommend the cottage to anyone.

Had a very pleasant stay in this cosy cottage, on a working farm. Very quiet, despite being just off the A6, with easy access to Bakewell and Buxton. Lovely area to visit & the cottage was a good base to explore the Peak District - we cycled the Monsal Trail and did several walks both in the southern Peak District, and in the more hilly northern arRead moreea around Castleton and Ladybower Reservoir. Lovely friendly cat (Bluey) - he knows where the fridge is for milk!! Hide

Just got back from a two week holiday with extended family, renting three of the four cottages here. Location is superb! Close to Buxton, and not too far from Bakewell or Matlock either (cheapest fuel is in Matlock!) Cottages spotlessly clean, fast WiFi too (lost connection once - no big issue) and big screen TV to boot; well equipped kitchens, spoRead moretless bathrooms, comfy beds, and the cutest, friendliest farm cats known to mankind! Owners very pleasant and nothing seemed too much trouble for them Hide

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Fantastic tranquil location with beautiful views of the countryside and located right by the Monsal Trail. Walking distance to a welcoming pub across the fields. Children loved the friendly cats and seeing the calves on the farm and we were made very welcome. Cottage cosy and well equipped.
