“Home from home. Beautiful”

We booked this cottage for seven friends to have a weekend away and visit Alton Towers. I called the owner Friday to ask what else we could do as Alton Towers was closed. She came up with many suggestions for us, very helpful. We arrived at different times on the Friday, cooked a huge lasagne in the fantastic kitchen and sat round the big dining table to enjoy it. Saturday we did the Tittesworth Reservoir walk that the owner had suggested. It was lovely and suited all abilities. Visited the local pub for tea, just a short walk down the road and really good food. Visited Buxton and Leek over the weekend, both lovely places, along with a pub two miles down the road which did a lovely Sunday carvery and looked to have a lovely Spa. Sunday we chilled out in the garden enjoying the weather and a few drinks. The whole house was perfect, the beds comfortable and the showers really powerful. Underfloor heating meant it was cosy and we didn't hear a peep from the people staying in the nearby cottages. Wine & chocolates on arrival is a lovely touch. I can't recommend this place enough. We've decided to make it an annual trip now.....our weekend was centred around Alton Towers but turned out amazing without the theme park even being open.

“Fabulous cottage”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Lovely cottage and wonderfully welcoming owners. The cottage had everything that we needed. The log fire was great at the end of the day, and we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. We could walk to the local pub and there were some fabulous long walks through beautiful countryside nearby.

Thanks for your review, it's really useful for us to see your feelings about the cottage. Having a log burner at the property can make a holiday so much more relaxing and cosy, especially after you've had a long day walking and exploring the fantastic surrounding countryside! We're really happy that you had a good time and hopefully we'll get you booked in for another holiday soon!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 16 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Comfortable cottage. Came to England from America to celebrate an early Christmas with my in laws. Kitchen was fully functional that I was able to make a proper Christmas dinner for the family. The owners are warm, friendly & welcoming. This property is located in a beautiful scenery , with lambs & chickens running around. This place was clean & spacious.
There is a walk in shower in the master bedroom that I really appreciated. There's also the Lazy Trout pub close to this property. Great food & service.

Thanks for the wine & chocolate I needed them after a long flight !
