Cosy cottage in a tranquil location
Left on 09/25/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Acetastebuddy
We had a very warm reception from Jill, the owner, on the day we arrived. She also gave us a welcome pack of tea, coffee and biscuits. The kitchen was well-equiped and clean. The standard of cleanliness in the whole house was very good. The decor of the house was very pleasing and the beds were comfortable. The house is set in a peaceful location but is not too remote. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and an enjoyable holiday in this part of the country.

The cottage was perfect. The location was 'off the beaten track' in a quiet hamlet yet not too far to drive to attractions such as Dovedale and Carsington Water. It was lovely to sit in the back garden with a wonderful view of the countryside. The owners were welcoming yet didn'tt intrude. Inside it was modern yet cosy, we didn't want to leave! Great value for money.
Great base for exploring peak district

Good value for money. Generally met our expectations (ie your description did not over sell it)
Main bedroom great character.
Stairs need a little care (my mother in law had to be taken to hospital when she slipped and hurt her finger).
Kitchen well equipped.
A very enjoyable week.

The cottage was in a quiet location. The fascilities were excellent with thoughtful extra touches to welcome you. (It was almost dark when we arrived & the lights were on to greet us).
Ideally situated for exploring the Peak District's natural & industrial past. So much to see & do' whatever the weather.
