What do our guests say?
"5* - beautiful cottage."
Everything you could ever need, a real home from home. Great location for loads of days out, only 20 mins from Alton Towers. Will definitely book again next time we visit that part of the country.

“Excellent cottage easy walk to town and shops”
Cottage location excellent. Parking outside cottage on road.. Cottage was clean and all facilities good. Courtyard garden ideal with table and chairs for four. Bedrooms were also clean with plenty of storage and room and the beds were good. Bathroom was excellent with a great shower. We would definitely stay again.

“Lovely little cottage".
We normally stay in a B&B for our annual cycling (and cake eating!) weekend in the Peak District but this year thought we'd try something different. Conifer cottage was lovely & well equipped (though we ate out rather than cook in the kitchen) with an excellent hot shower. Very close to town centre where there are lots of nice restaurants and shops and in walking distance to the bike hire centre on the south end of the Tissington trail. There were only 2 of us but big enough for 4 comfortably.
