The property name says it all!
Everything you need for a fantastic stay and a comfy bed. The owner is on hand for any help or information.
The place is in the countryside as you would expect being a barn conversion. A gem of a property.

My wife and I spent a wonderful weeek at the cottage in early December 2009. We found it a perfect venue to relax and explore the immediate countryside which is superb. The village has a great feel to it with a friendly local pub serving good pub food and decent real ales. The owners were very welcoming and provided fresh eggs from the hens who roam in the back paddock! The accomodation was perfect for our requirements for the week and was clean and modern. You have miles of great walking and cycling areas literally on your doorstep and you are very close to the Peak District. Highly recommend it.
