"Fantastic festive retreat!"
Spent a lovely, cosy Christmas at Chess Press Cottage. The cottage was exactly what we had hoped for- amazing views, brilliant local walks and pubs and a cute and cosy interior. The cottage was very well equiped; we had been dubious about cooking a roast on Christmas day but there were plently of baking trays, oil, salt and pepper and utensils. We had an absolutely amazing stay and will definately be back soon!!
Really pleased you enjoyed Christmas in Cheese Press Cottage. I do try and put lots of utensils and pans in the cottage and am glad you used them when doing your festive roast! The bonus of snow as well so I am glad you managed to get out ok at the end of your stay. Jane

"Lovely little cottage"
Surprised my partner to a birthday trip to this lovely little cottage in the middle of the Peak District and was not disappointed. The owner made us feel very welcome and even gave us some nice home m… More

We booked Cheese Press Cottage as a Christmas retreat hoping for a festive, relaxing and private break away from our hectic lifestyles. It proved to be this and so much more! Upon arrival, we were in awe at the secluded location and knew we had made the perfect decision. Overwhelmed by the cuteness and details of the cottage, we were quick to get the fire going and use the Nespresso machine to enjoy with the complimentary biscuits. Although Jane was not present, she contacted us prior to our departure and ensured that our stay was still perfect. We had plans of exploring the area however in all honesty, we opted out of the plans to stay in the cottage and enjoy the winter views, making use of the kitchen facilities in cooking a rustic roast dinner next to the warmth of the fire. We were impressed with how far Jane had gone to make sure the cottage had everything we may need - We took oil, tea bags, sugar, oven trays etc just incase they weren't there but the cottage was well stocked and we didn't need any of it. We wanted privacy and we certainly had it, only seeing a chicken and three geese on our entire stay. We've spent the past week reminiscing and pining for the experience once again - we will certainly be trying to fit in another visit to Biggin Grange in the new year. Thank you Jane, the cottage excelled all our expectations x
What a lovely review! You are very kind and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Cheese Press Cottage. It is really relaxing and I'm glad you made the most of chilling out! Do please come back and see us again when you need to breath some Derbyshire air! Jane

"Perfect country getaway"
We had such a lovely time at Cheese Press Cottage. The cottage was well equipped and really cosy. We were greeted by Jane who showed us into our cottage and baked us some delicious cookies! We would definitely go back again the next time we need a break from city life!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad the cookies went down well! It is a lovely cottage to relax in and I am glad you had a nice few days. Come back and see us again! Jane

"Gorgeous, cosy perfect cottage in an idyllic location"
Cheese Press Cottage is a beautiful cosy cottage for 2 people. It is clean, tidy & contains everything you need for a relaxing break. We arrived on a wet Friday evening but as soon as we had the log burner going the cottage was so cosy we didn't want to venture out again! The kitchen is very well equipped with absolutely everything you may need including champagne flutes! Awaiting us was a tin containing delicious homemade biscuits which didn't last long. On the table there was a vase of fresh flowers & toiletries in the bathroom along with soft fluffy towels. It is these special extra touches that help to make the cottages at Biggin Grange so appealing. Jane & Richard Henry were very welcoming & informative but then leave you in peace to enjoy your stay but you know they are available if you need any information. I can't put into words how much we enjoyed our stay, it is now my happy place when I'm having a bad day. I have never felt so relaxed so quickly on a holiday before & we fell in love with the place so much we have already booked a return trip. I would definitely recommend you try out one of the cottages for yourself & you will see what I mean.
What a lovely review! Thank you so much. I am so glad you are all booked in for next year. It is such a sweet cottage and perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views over Biggin Dale. Look forward to seeing you in 2015! jane

It doesn't get more charming than this. The cottage is just adorable. Comfortable modern fittings in the kitchen and bathroom (with a bath, not just a shower stall). The place was shining when we… More
It was lovely to meet you both and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your weekend at Cheese Press Cottage. Do come back and see us again when you need a few days away from London and try one of the other cottages! Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Jane

"Cosy and characterful miniature cottage"
The Cheese Press was a delight to stay in. There were freshly baked cookies and a plentiful supply of fire wood available for us upon arrival. The cottage was surprisingly tiny but, this is in no way a negative, as it made our stay, aided by the log burner, feel warm and intimate.
It was a lovely base for a quiet stay in the peaks, with a couple of very nice pubs not too far away.
I'm pleased you had a nice couple of days and thanks for taking the time to write a review for the cottage.
