Very Good

“Simply stunning”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2020

Stayed with our two children (aged 1 and 9) and had an absolutely magnificent time. It truly is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the world - we loved every minute. The owners are so lovely, making it an even more perfect place to stay. The grounds are wonderful to explore, the pool is fantastic and the cottage itself is homely and cosy, with everything you could need to enjoy a break there. It is also in a great location with many wonderful walks to enjoy - our favourites were Dovedale, Thor's Cave, Chatsworth and Tissington. We loved it so much we have already booked for 2021! Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday xxx

Owner's reply: I am so sorry that you found your stay at Swallows Cottage disappointing and really do wish that you had mentioned these two items whilst you were staying with us. I had cleaned the oven myself so I can only apologise if you thought it was not up to scratch and I agree, you are quite right - some of the tumblers had suffered frosting (from dishwasher use) which I have replaced. Both these issues could have been resolved within an hour of your arrival and I am just so sorry that we didn't have an opportunity to rectify the situation whilst you were with us. With all best wishes, Izzy
