I visited Avonlea Cottage with my girlfriend in November for a long weekend. The cottage is lovely and cosy and very well equipped with everything you'd need. Lovely welcome from Chris and Carole with a bottle of prosecco which was well received! Nice log burner - when we got it going! As others have said, the bed is very comfortable! No issues with the shower which was powerful and warm! Watch your step around the back if it has been raining as the paving gets slippy!
Visited the Bull's Head in the village, which had friendly staff and excellent food at reasonable prices (main meal around £11). Also visited Chatsworth House, about a 20 minute drive away, which was fantastic with its Alice in Wonderland theme for Christmas, £20 entry but well worth it, as well as a huge Christmas market. We also went to Poole's Cavern which is a natural cave system in Buxton, also a 20 minute drive, with some impressive stalactites and stalagmites. Our tour guide was very informative and excellent with the children who were on the tour. Nearby is Bakewell, which is a lovely town, famous for its Bakewell Pudding, which is also worth a visit.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Avonlea Cottage and would not hesitate to visit again.

This was a lovely cosy little cottage, It has everything you could want and more. From the bottle of Prosecco when you walked through the door to the Wood Burner stove it was warm and inviting. Monyash is a quiet but centrally located village that allowed us to escape the hustle and bustle in our busy lives, it is close to Bakewell, Chatsworth and lots of other wonderful villages that were a treat to find and enjoy. We had a great break for Five days and will certainly return.
Small cottage ideal for 2 in a lovely village; perfect for walking and visiting the area. Well furnished and clean and tidy. Overall we liked the cottage but some minor criticisms: A little bit cramped, and with the steps in and out of the kitchen it was easier to eat at the breakfast bar than carry things into the living room. Fridge had a freezer compartment rather than the fridge freezer we were expecting but we managed to squeeze in the food we had brought so not a major problem. Main criticism was that the water pressure in the shower was so low that taking a shower was almost something to be endured! Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the holiday.

A lovely cottage ideal for couples to use as a base. Cosy surroundings and all the amenities you require. Close to the village pub which has an extensive menu and serves excellent food at a good price ( would recommend the Barnsley Chop).
Having been there before a few years ago, we decided to go again for our honeymoon. Perfect place to relax or take a walk from the front door and a lovely garden to sit in for breakfast in the sun. It has one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. Shower a bit disappointing but the bath makes up for it.
