Excellent property and in an ideal position. Clean spacious and extremely well equipped. We had plenty of room and being a family of nine it was the perfect place to get together in a central location.

The cottage provided the perfect base for us to explore the Peak District - it was are first holiday with are dog and it was lovely that he got to run around and play with other dogs from the farm and other cottages - also when we accidentally left are coats on departure the owner was super helpful in terms of organising their return.
