We had a perfect stay over Christmas. It was appreciated to arrive at a warm cottage and find a bottle of mulled wine and some mince pies left for us. The cottage is comfortable and was as described - it was exactly what we were looking for. Ideally situated for walking in the area. We would love to visit again.

"Far smaller than the photos lead you to believe"
The cottage was cramped with the ground floor only 14'6" by 12' with everything squeezed in.The photo does not really show how small it actually is as they only show parts of the room b… More
We are sorry to hear that your stay with us was not what you were expecting. Our Cottage is advertised as a 'quaint one bedroom cottage with stone flagged floors and a hand held shower over the bath'. We appreciate your comments regarding the furnishings and kitchen area, however we have spent both time and money in sourcing antique/period furniture, such as the chesterfield sofas and belfast sink, to reflect the character of this renovated 300yr old cottage which is located in such a beautiful and sort after area of the Peak District. We do recognize that wear and tear is starting to show on the cooker, however it is fully functional and kept clean.
During the six years of holiday letting we have had several honeymoon couples and other couples returning to our cottage to celebrate special occasions such as birthday's and anniversary's in this romantic old cottage with its unique character.

"Warm and welcoming"
A beautiful cottage with a high quality finish. Perfect for our romantic break. This cottage is set in a beautiful location within easy access to many areas of outstanding beauty. We were blessed with the weather but will definitely return to this idyllic cottage in winter to enjoy the log burning stove.

"A real gem"
This was our 2nd stay in the beautiful cottage and it did not disappoint. For such a small space, it feels incredibly roomy and this is down to the thought and care that has gone into making it into a holiday home. Beautifully furnished and tastefully restored, it has everything you could want in a cottage for two. Lovely aspect, beautiful walks without even getting into your car and so peaceful. There is one pub in the village but Buxton is only 5 miles away and the nearest village of Longnor which has more amenities is only 2 miles away. The dual fuel stove keeps you warm and cosy and everything has been thought of. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage with lots of character. This will not be our last visit

"Peaceful and relaxing in a quiet village location"
Our fourth stay in this beautiful cottage. For us a plus is that we can take our dog with us when we holiday in England. The cottage is comfortable and nicely furnished. Its location is ideal for exploring the peak district. The Pack Horse in Crowdecote and Royal Oak in Hurdlow serve very good food and are both dog friendly. The old railway track between Buxton and Bakewell well worth visiting especially now the tunnels are open.
