“Rural Beauty”
Reviewed 27 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

November isn't the ideal time to visit the Peak District, and true to form it was either gale force wind or driving rain for most of our mid week break at Cheese Press Cottage. That we had a lovely time was in no small part due to the charming accommodation. When we weren't out visiting some of the local Peak towns, we were curled up on the settee in front of the log fire. The cottage is small but ideal for two. It's well equipped, cosy, and has a lovely view. Situated on a private farm estate, it is delightfully peaceful, far from the 'main' road (itself a narrow country lane), yet within a mile of the local town of Biggin and the typically rural Waterloo Inn. This is also a treat, with its real ales and home cooked traditional pub grub.
So, despite the elements trying their best to spoil things, we had a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable 4 day break. As a bonus the owners are very friendly and live close by.

We certainly seem to have had our fair share of wind and rain this autumn and I'm glad it didn't stop you enjoying your stay at Biggin Grange. We are lucky having The Waterloo Inn in the village and I'm pleased you managed to go and discover it. Thanks for the nice review and hope you may return in warmer weather!

“all the peace and quiet you`ll ever need.”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here to the point where we realised 2 nights was to short a stay.The cottage was perfect in every way with the added bonus of no mobile phone signal (shame) so no annoying calls/messages to spoil the quiet.

I'm glad you enjoyed your couple of nights at Cheese Press Cottage and made the most of the peace and quiet. The mobile signal is patchy but ours do work so sadly it is always ringing or beeping! Come back and see us again when you want to escape to the countryside.

Really glad you enjoyed your stay at Cheese Press Cottage. The bathroom is just about to be ripped out and new shower, tiles etc so a bit of an upheaval but I am sure it will be lovely when I'm finished so I hope you get chance to come back and see us again in the future. Jane

“Lovely place, charming cottage, warm and helpful hosts”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Cheese Press Cottage is a perfect, cozy, delightful pied a terre for this part of the Peak District. The cottage is equipped with everything you will need: very convenient, handy kitchen; comfortable lounge; very comfortable bed and bathroom. And Jane and Richard are both very warm, welcoming, and helpful.
But the most spectacular thing here is the beauty of the surroundings. Biggin Grange itself is lovely and immaculately kept. The views from the door of cottage are sublime, looking out over Biggin Dale to the hills beyond. Beauty, peace and tranquility -- plus perfect comfort and friendly hosts: just what I was looking for! (And Biggin Hall just down the road has a wonderful restaurant for dinner!)

Thanks for writing such a lovely review and I'm glad you enjoyed the peaceful cottage after your flight from the States. Quite a trip you had going on to the Cotswolds but I'm so pleased you managed to explore the area and still have plenty of time to enjoy the view of the hills from the cottage. Jane
