The owners have thought of everything to make this a perfect place to return to after exploring miles and miles of the wonderful Peaks. The accomodation was of a really high standard- confortable and homely and it far exceeded expectations of what would normally be found in a holiday let. We had prepared a list of walks to do- but need not have bothered as there was lots of books and maps at the cottage. The local pub was amazing too!
Thankyou for your comments about our cottage. We take pride in presenting it to our guests in the best possible way, for their comfort and enjoyment.
