“EXCELLENT STANDARD OF COTTAGE”
We stayed for 4 nights in midweek and this is probably the best cottage I have ever stayed in as everything you could need, and more, was catered for in this impressive and quirky cottage. It is of 'upside down' design with the lounge on the first floor and the 2 bedrooms underneath. The steps leading to the lounge are fairly steep but my 85 year old mother-in-law was able to cope. The property was spotlessly clean and the owner, Priscilla, greeted us with a small welcome pack on arrival. In addition to the cottage, we had use of part of the owners garden, with quality chairs and table, adjacent to the cottage which was ideal for morning coffee and BBQ in the evening. You can park your car adjacent to the cottage in a secluded former farm courtyard. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for quality and a quiet, peaceful location within easy commuting distance of Matlock, Bakewell and surrounding Peak District
Owner's reply: Fabulous review - thank you. It was a delight having you stay & we hope we may see you again in the future.
“Amazing family cottage”
Great location to local Derbyshire attractions. We had a wonderful weekend break in this spotlessly clean cottage. Everything you could want and need was catered for. We had a lovely evening meal in the local pub within 2 minutes walking distance. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review.We are glad that everything was to your liking & hope to welcome you again in the future.
“Fantastic Holiday Home that has it all.”
The Old Creamery is an outstading holiday retreat. Everything you need is there. It is by far the best self catering cottage I have stayed in. This was a great location to explore the peak district. It is close to Matlock and all its attractions. There are some lovely local walks and scenery.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review - we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
“Cosy village cottage”
Another fabulous weekend at The Old Creamery, the weather might have been cold and snowy, but the cottage was cosy and snug. Everything you need to make your stay special, nice little pub two doors away, and a short drive to lots of lovely places. Would definitely recommend
“Charming cottage - a home from home”
This was our second time visiting The Old Creamery. We had previously stayed in Nov 2015. Strategically positioned, this is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside but equally the cottage is so wonderfully cosy, it has everything you need for staying snuggled up inside. Priscilla is a fantastic host and knows exactly how to make guests feel welcome. Great communication prior to arrival (and after - Priscilla very kindly returned a couple of items by post which we had accidental left behind!) with some fantastic recommendations for local restaurants and takeaways. The property was very well kitted out and we were kindly provided with a welcome basket and some essentials in the kitchen to start us off. The property was extremely clean and well presented, could not fault it and would highly recommend. We are considering making this our regular for when we plan walks in the area in future. Thank you!
A super location for exploring Derbyshire/Peak District. The cottage was just delightful! Priscilla has thought of absolutely everything - the cottage is immaculate, all the rooms are spacious, well equipped and the little touches just make this a real home from home. A well thought of 'welcome pack' too - Priscilla's victoria sponge with homemade jam simply delicious! Had a very nice meal in the pub next door one evening and the two young ladies on duty were very pleasant. We were very sad to leave - the week just wasn't long enough and we would love to return to such a beautiful, friendly location We would have no hesitation in recommending The Old Creamery - you wont be disappointed!
“Idyllic country cottage set in beautiful countryside.”
The cottage is beautifully furnished, clean and very comfortable. The owners are discreet but available if needed, friendly and helpful. We were delighted to see an Australian Flag to welcome us. A thoughtful touch by owners wishing to make you feel very welcome. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking or just driving through. There are some magnificent stately homes nearby to visit, with the ruins of Wingfield Manor just around the corner. I would certainly love to stay here on our next visit to the UK.
“The perfect get away.”
My partner and I stayed here whilst teaching patchwork in the area and we were very impressed. We stay in many B&Bs and cottages and this was the first time I really felt EVERYTHING had been provided! It was like staying in your friends home...not in a business accommodation! It was lovely, cozy and we had an amazing nights sleep. We highly recommend this cottage. Sadly the pub does not do food on Sunday evening...
Enjoyed a few days here with our grandchildren. Fabulous cottage, contains everything you need and is in a good location. Would stay again.
“Fantastic, well-equipped cottage in a beautiful location”
Another wonderful stay in this delightful cottage. It really does have everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped for cooking anything you could want, the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Our only regret is that the weather was so nice that we didn't get chance to snuggle down in the cosy lounge in front of the fire! We will be back again.
