Lovely house, well equipped, very comfortable, in a near perfect High Peaks location. Loved it!
Kitchen and bedrooms (all en suite) were great, pleasant walk to village of Edale, great circular walks from the house.
Minor niggle, had to go outside to pick up the wi-fi from the farmhouse.
Took some finding when we arrived.

Cottage was lovely and warm in a beautiful part of the countryside with everything thought of in the way over facilities. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend anyone to go and have a great time.
Delightful cottage in superb location.

Excellent cottage with very friendly owners.
The cottage is in a very rural setting and is an ideal base for touring the surrounding countryside yet at the same time is very close to major conurbations.
We particularly liked that all three bedrooms had en-suite facilities. In addition to the added privacy it saved time in the morning meaning we could be out and about earlier than would have been normal.

Fantastic Accomodation and Location

Have stayed in many holidays lets in the past, and I have to say this was the best!
The accomodation was first class, lovely fixtures and fittings with comfortable beds. The owners were extremely friendly and they were on hand to offer advice on where and what to do locally and further afield. Lovely fresh flowers on arrival and homemade scones! Great location, away from it all, but within a safe short walk (of the road)to the local village and pub. Higly recommended
An excellent week

The property interior was new, clean and smart. It is a recent barn conversion and has been well done. The owner lives in the farmhouse just over the driveway and we were met and shown round and made welcome. The fact that the cottage is in the middle of a working farm was fine as it was all accommodation around and it is a sheep farm and you look out across the garden, field and fells.
Kitchen was well equipped. We were six adults as three couples and the cottage was spacious for us all.
We had a dry week with only one rainy day, which might be rare in Edale. The cottage is nice to relax in and it is just a short walk from Edale and the two pubs. We set off walking on the hills around Edale every day and went in different directions covering every hilltop in sight during the week. These walks are right on your doorstep and this is an excellent location for walks, yet also only a few miles in the car from pleasant villages and eating places or the wider Peak District. We would happily return to this cottage another year.
Very comfortable and in a wonderful location.

This was our second visit to this property. The owners were friendly and helpful. The accommodation suited our party extremely well. The views from the cottage and garden are splendid and the atmosphere is one of peace and tranquility. It is a pleasant short walk into Edale village for the information centre, shop, pub and church. We were lucky enough to be entertained there by the Morris team from Chapel-en-le-Frith. It is a walker's paradise with the Pennine Way so close as well as Mam Tor and Castleton. Travelling by car it is easy to access other parts of the Peak District and particularly the cycle trails. One of the objects of our visit was to go to some performances at the G & S Festival in Buxton which we did on 3 evenings during our stay. Probably the worst thing about our stay was the deteriorating weather as the week progressed!
