What do our guests say?
“Excellent, clean facility with large kitchen”
The house was clean, well equipped and looked very well looked after. Would definitely stay again!
Kieran, Weymouth, November 2017
The cottage was exactly what we required. It was clean and had everything we needed. The location was great with the town nearby which provided a good mix of shops, pubs and takeaways. Also the location was great as we were visiting Alton Towers which was only 12 miles away. The communication received by the owners was great.
Tim & Dawn, August 2017
“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.

"The cottage was perfect, thanks."
Steve, Scarborough, May 2017
"Very well equipped and comfortable stay.”
The nicest stay we have been to in many years. So well equipped and a stones throw from all the wonderful places which are a must visit in the Peak District.
