“A very happy stay” We had a brilliant stay in Strutt Cottage. We found it very comfortable & the location was perfect. It was nice staying nr a little town & walking down there every morning for breakfast. We thoroughly recommend it.The only downside is that we had to leave a day earlier than expected.
“Great value weekend retreat” We arrived on Friday and were greeted by the owners, Wendy and Andrew who showed us round and gave us some advice on places to go. And they'd baked chocolate brownies which was a nice touch. And fresh flowers too. They'd also emailed prior to us setting off to give directions and to ask what kind of milk we wanted. Fire was there ready to be lit and it REALLY heats the place up. There's a small TV with built-in DVD player and a decent choice of DVDs too.
We went for a weekend of walking and there was a great selection of books and maps in the property with lots of walks in them. There's also a slow cooker so handy for cooking your food while out walking. Only slight gripe was that there wasn't a potato masher or colander (not that we could find anyway). It has a good shower and quite a big bath too. Very close to the town centre and a steep walk downhill. The 2 nights we went into the town centre we got taxis back and they only cost £2.80 (or £3.86 if you bump into a stranger in town who's going kinda the same way, but he kindly gives you £2.80 anyway making the cost only £1.06).
If you like folk music (or just music in general) I highly recommend the Labour club on a Friday and the last Sunday of the month, where they have music sessions. Just take your instrument and join in. Apparently the folk train (Google it!) also comes to Glossop once a month and it's worth going to the Labour club for that too, whenever it is.
Anyway, the Cowshed comes highly recommended. I nearly booked a place just outside Glossop but so glad I didn't and decided to actually stay in the town because you're right on the edge of the countryside anyway.
Thanks again to Wendy and Andrew, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
