"A fantastic Manor house ideally set up for multiple couples and/or an extended family holiday."

OK, we were very lucky with the weather - 100% sunshine for the 10 day stay! The Manor house would be ideal in summer or winter for up to 4 couples or extended family. All the bedrooms were en-suite and the lounge/dining room was well equipped with comfy sofas, table and chairs to seat 10 and a well equipped larder; all mod cons in the kitchen too. We were made to feel extremely welcome and the bottle of wine on arrival was a very nice touch. There is a small garden outside with a large table and enough chairs to seat 10 around the table - strongly recommend that you bring a BBQ with you as one is not provided - we ate outside every night of the stay. Carsington Water is a 5 minute drive away and provides multiple water sports. The Miners Arms pub is a 10 minute walk from the house and serves reasonable food - be prepared for a wait on busy weekends though. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our choice and would most definitely book this holiday home again and would highly recommend to all.

"Great family get together to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary"

We found Manor Cottage perfect for our family get together. With ages from 18months to 65 years the property suited all. Lovely surrounding countryside and within walking distance of a good country pub. Our son and son in law found the "old man chairs" in the cottage great for sitting with a glass of brandy and sorting the worries of the world! Recommend the short drive to Dovedale, which is a stunning area made even better by the glorious weather.
