A beautifully presented cottage in a great location. Bright decor and a cosy atmosphere. We love cooking so enjoyed the stove/range and well equipped kitchen/dining area. Great walks to be done right from the village. And super village shop, local eggs and milk.

What a great place to stay! We were mightily impressed with this cottage: a great location for exploring the Peaks, and beautifully decorated, furnished and equipped. We were lucky with late September sunshine and had a great holiday. There is lots of walking nearby, with the Monsal Trail and Thornbridge Hall (lovely gardens!) just 10 mins stroll aRead moreway. We can recommend the local pubs (we tried The White Lion and The Packhorse) and the Thornbridge Brewery in Bakewell (excellent pizzas!). Hide

We stayed at the cottage for 2 nights, using it as a home base for a Peak District trip. It was the absolute best place we could have hoped for beautifully renovated, spacious, with very comfortable beds and lovely communal areas. Will definitely be making my way back here again some day!
