“Very comfortable and welcoming cottage”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We wanted to visit the Heritage Mills of Amber valley, specifically Strutts Mill in Belper and Arkwrights Mill at Cromford. We chose The Mistal from the Net and were not disappointed .!
From the welcoming scones , tea bags and milk to all the helpful information everything was perfect. Helen and Tony are very nice people and do their best to ensure you have a good stay. The accommodation is a fairly recent conversion and, as such, is immaculate. The king size bed is very comfortable.! The TV is excellent and wi-fi great..The only slight oddity is no wardrobe but hangers are provided in the hall between bed and bath rooms.
We were very happy with our visit and have no reservations in thoroughly recommending The Mistal
Just be aware that there are no eating places in the near vicinity. The nearest pub, which is excellent, is about a mile away.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It was a pleasure to 'come home' after long days exploring the area to this comfortable, welcoming and well appointed cottage. Much thought has gone into providing everything needed to make a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and Helen and Tony are wonderful hosts, attentive but not intrusive. We were sad to leave after our great two week 'home away from home'.

“A lovely cottage in the beautiful surrounds of Derbyshire”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A charming, well-equipped ground floor cottage in the heart of Derbyshire. Helen & Tony were always on hand, and exceptional hosts throughout. The property was comfy, clean and tidy, and had everything I needed for a wonderful stay - certainly a visit I won't forget!
