"Wonderful 'get-away' for two!"
Mistal is a very comfortable cottage in a pleasant location. It was beautifully clean with fresh flowers and a tea-time snack provided. We enjoy walking and cycling and suitable trails are within easy reach. If you want a meal out, there are some excellent restaurants within 4 miles of the cottage. Helen is an excellent hostess!
All in all, a great place to stay!

"An exceptionally peaceful and relaxing stay"
I enjoyed a most peaceful stay in August of 2014.
Helen is very accommodating and ensures she is on hand to attend to all needs. I was impressed with her consistent high level of service and attention to detail throughout the booking process which continued throughout my stay.
The location of The Mistal is very accessible and the plentiful amenities at Belper are only a short distance away, "George's Tradition" fish and chip shop at Belper is definitely worth a visit! The local (and wider) area is very picturesque with beautiful rolling hills. There are plenty of tourist attractions within easy reach of The Mistal and there are lots of scenic walks nearby too. During my stay, I decided to have a stroll to "The Hanging Gate" public house, which is only around a 10 minute walk away. The food was delicious and the beer was good too.
Turning to The Mistal itself, the cottage is very clean with all the usual necessities (and more) in all of the right places. The Mistal is peaceful with a relaxing living room, well fitted kitchen, clean bathroom and very comfortable beds.
There are plenty of leaflets containing information of local "things to do" and Helen has put together a fantastic folder detailing all the things you would wish to know in order to get the most out of your stay.
I very much recommend a visit to The Mistal or indeed the adjoining cottage.
