What do our guests say?
"Very well equipped and comfortable stay.”
One of the best equipped and nicest stay we have been to in many years. So well equipped and a stone throw from all the wonderful places which are a must visit in the Peak District.

“A fantastic little cottage 5* perfect!!”
This cottage is compact with a lovely sized kitchen diner equipped with everything you would expect and more! The cottage was sparkling clean when we arrived so very happy on that note, I stayed with my partner and two friends and used it for a base to enjoy the near by Alton Towers but there is so much more to explore and this cottage would be perfect for anyone. Would stay and highly recommend time and time again!! Well done lovely place!!!!

"We really enjoyed staying here. The beds are really comfy and the FreeSat and WiFi access are a good bonus, and thought it great value for money. We would definitely recommend it to others and will certainly look to come back soon ourselves."
