Cosy cottage, felt like a home from home. Lots of personal touches and attention to detail. Good base to walk in the Peak District, although walks tended to be a car-drive away. Made to feel very welcome, along with our dog. Visiting in October we tended to drive to a nearby town and explore in the morning when cloud cover was low, then walk in theRead more afternoon. Hide

Lots of nice little complimentary extras added by Bill & Ellen who run the cottages. These included hand written notes, fresh farm eggs, beer and nice bread. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Peak District.

This is a very well appointed cottage, we did not need anything that had not been thought of by the owners. The location is stunning, we enjoyed it even though we had a wet week! In good weather it would be hard to better. The cottage is comfortable and cosy and a real home from home. Our dog was made welcome and she loved the location too
