On arrival it was pouring with rain and we had two dogs and all the luggage to unload. I found it difficult to reverse my medium sized car into the parking area as it is quite narrow, A large car would never fit. Once in, I was only able to open a door on one side of the vehicle. Having said that, we were always able to find a space outside to park on the roadside. The garden is alot smaller than it looks in the photos and the grass could have done with cutting too. When we stayed in one evening, we found the furniture was not very comfortable to sit on for long periods.
Apart from the above, we did love the cottage and the way it was set out. There was also everything you could need, from clothes pegs to a bottle opener, I have never been to a better equipped Cotage. Having the two dogs it would have been nice to be able to let them into the garden from the door, but the door led onto the driveway, with nothing to stop them getting onto the road, this meant we had to put leads on to take them for a wee.
The views are lovely from the garden, looking over the open fields and we walked most days from the cottage, without the need to take the car. The pub at the bottom of the road is very handy and we ate there a couple of nights, food was excellent with a good choice on the menu.
Everything was clean, neat and tidy in the cottage and we loved the decor, simple but effective.
We left the dogs one day in the local kennels as they were not interested in our shopping day! These were located about three miles from the cottage and very reasonable for price.
We would consider going back again and loved the area
Cosy and convenient place

The house is very well situated for visitors to the Peaks. Contemporary fittings, clean and comfortable. We particularly liked the dishwasher. No holiday let should really be without one!!
Internet access was missed, however.
Seating in the lounge was just adequate for the 4 of us, High tog polyester duvets may be too hot for some and one single bed mattress was a bit uncomfortable for an adult. Recommended, good value.
