“Simply stunning, missing my fabulous view”

One word sums this house up stunning,it's situated on the side of the gorgeous Carsington water. The house is fully equipped with everything you need and is absolutely spotless with comfy beds and beautiful views from the windows and of road parking which is great . Pamela the lovely owner was there when we arrived and was invaluable with her local knowledge and was a great help with local restaurants etc. The knockerdown pub just down the road is great if you have Coeliacs especially. We visited all the local tourist attractions Matlock etc ( great if u luv fish n chips) Dovedale is lovely and the surrounding area is beautiful. Carsington water and reserve is great to walk round and the visitors centre is a bit of fun with activities for the kids.
Can't wait to return

This cottage is lovely, located in an ideal place for walking round Carsington Water. The kitchen is very well equipped and we found everything we needed here. The beds and linen are of very good quality and made for a great few nights sleep. Contact with Pamela (the owner) was great, she replied to messages very quickly and professionally and was incredibly helpful. The damage deposit was returned within the 10 days as per the terms and conditions. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we were visiting the area again.

“Excellent - recommended”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed in this property for the Easter weekend - six friends in total plus one child. The cottage itself is great, with a social living room and lovely open fire, with complementary basket of logs. Good sized kitchen and well equipped. One of the dining chairs was broken but other than that the place was spotless on arrival. Amazing view out across the countryside towards Carsington Water. Good garden space as well (for the better weather!). The owner was also very helpful both in advance with directions but also following the reservation, answering queries around our deposit refund. Would certainly recommend.

“Amazing, relaxing stay. Would highly recommend!”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I booked this as a surprise for my Fathers 70th birthday. We had a lovely weekend. The area is beautiful with stunning views. The pictures on the website does not give this luxury property it's due as it is so much bigger than it looks. The wether was cold during our visit but with the views and burning log fire, we did not care!

I would just like to add that Pam, the owner has given me the best experience. Her contact was 1st class and she could not be more helpful. I even received my deposit back on the same day that I left!

Thank you Pam for everything!

“Great long weekend away!!”
Reviewed 1 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We booked Lakeview Cottage for a weekend get together with a group of friends that are spread about the country. It was absolutely perfect! The cottage itself was beautiful and really stylishly appointed with amazing views of Carsington Water. The lounge was huge and very comfortably fit everyone in our party. The kitchen was great with all the pots/pans/utensils and really convenient with the dishwasher, though the fridge is very small so don't take too much. We were lucky in a sense that it was quite chilly as we were able to leave some of the bottled drinks outside to keep cold. There was a log burner that we got a lot of use out of because it was a particularly blustery weekend, but that didn't keep us from taking a walk around the village and down by the water. There is a pub about 5-10 minutes walk away and it was a lovely little spot for some mid afternoon drinks, so nice and relaxed that we decided to return on the Sunday before we left to have the Sunday carvery :) We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to get together and relax. We haven't received our deposit but assume that we will get it all back after the 10 days that they email you it takes to process it after check out, and Pamela was so responsive I can't imagine it being the big issue that others have reported.
