This cottage was the most comfortable and best equipped we have

Bluebird cottage was a delight to stay in. It was extremely well-equipped and comfortable. and the owners were friendly without being intrusive. The cottage was in a quiet location but ideally situated for visits to Dovedale, Ashbourne, Bakewell, and Matlock.
charming cottage linked to farmhouse in restful, rural location.

We enjoyed the location, convenient for exploring the region - surrounded by fields but, being joined to the owner's farmhouse, it did not feel isolated. The cottage faced a concrete yard, field and barns (rustic - not chocolate box so could do with 'softening' a bit for holiday purposes - grassy garden behind (didn't use this so don't know if it would have suited families). The cottage was charming and larger than expected. We took advantage of a slight discount but on arrival realised it was probably given as the adjacent barn was being converted into a cottage - it would not have deterred us but would have appreciated knowing that in advance. As we were using the cottage as a base for exploring the region it didn't inconvenience us but may have done if we were planning just a quiet retreat. We would be happy to go back again.
Wonderful location and Tom and Irene are delightful hosts

. Excellent service ...extra supplies were provided when needed on first night.
. Delightful old cottage, well modernised with all mod cons (though I would have liked a washing machine)
. Wonderful country walks direct from house, plus immediate access to one of England's finest rural regions. eg. Minninglow Hill.
. We loved the pet donkeys; Parwich village (close by)is one of the prettiest we've seen, with a lovely family run pub (housing the village store). Great food.
. Regular bus (Ashbourne - Buxton) is 1/2 mile away which we availed ouselves of when without our car for two days.
. Highly recommended.
peace and quiet and a lot of snow

Very clean, everything needed was provided and the owners were most welcoming. Qiuet but only a short drive to the main ashbourne to Buxton road. The pub The Jug and Glass a couple of miles towards Buxton do very good meals at sensible prices.
