“Lovely cottage in perfect setting”
Reviewed 11 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Superb well equipped cottage with wonderful views (between the rain showers). Very clean. Nice touch to include bird food for the bird feeders. Very helpful and friendly housekeepers living next door. It was an enjoyable stay and good base to visit the Chatsworth Flower Show.

“Brilliant cottage”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage was perfect for my mum and aunt to stay in whilst we were at my daughter's wedding at Hargate Hall. We appreciated Tony's warm welcome and his help in settling our relatives in. It was clean and warm and perfectly equipped and the views were stunning. Everything we needed. Thank you so much.

“Lovely cottage in a great location with fantastic views”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very well equipped and was warm and cosy. The very pretty garden has a pleasant sitting out area with table and chairs that takes full advantage of the truly lovely views which can also be seen from the main room and bedrooms in the cottage. The location gave easy access to many places including Tideswell, Bakewell and Buxton. Fiona was very helpful during the booking process and it was nice to be greeted by Tony on arrival who gave us useful local information. We would love to stay again and would recommend.
