    • “My partner and our dog Tyke had a week in October. The Cottage is well set out,and the owners are very welcoming. It is a stone's throw from the Punchbowl pub, which is dog friendly and serves good food ( Tyke came with us every night when we had our evening meal ) There is also a restaurant.The country side is amazing and the reservoir up the road has some good walks. Lots of places of interest within an hours drive. We are planning on going again, as the people made us very welcome.”

    • “Stayed at Wayside cottage for 4 nights at the end of December and over the new year, it was wonderful, a lovely cottage which is very well appointed. The wind was howling outside and it just felt lovely and cosy sitting in front of the log burner away from everything. There are lovely walks nearby especially the Derwent reservoir and the village itself is very friendly and welcoming with a nice village shop and a pub which is less than a stones throw away which serves excellent food and a good choice of beers. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, its just a shame we had to leave.”

    • “The cottage is situated in a very quiet village. The kitchen is more a galley style, the equipment for all the cooking we did is there. The living room is well designed, comfortable and cosy. I would suggest you take with you some more logs for the burner, the owners do leave you a couple of days worth along with firelighters. The bedroom has a king size bed and an old wooden floor, it creaks a bit, adds to the feel of the cottage. I would recommend this for any couple who want time on their own, with or without a pet. The place is a great centre for walking. With towns and cities within easy reach. The cottage was clean, a welcome pack of milk, wine, logs etc.. As a couple with the dog, it couldn't have been better”

    • “The complimentary wine flowers and general facilities the property offered. We liked the fact that there was no compromise on standard just because they allowed dogs to stay - which was a big use for us. It was home-from-home. Everybody was so friendly. It was a good base to travel from to the various walks around the beautiful countryside. The village pub was lovely and the food amazing! Thank you.”

The local pub served excellent food and is dog friendly (as is Wayside Cottage) You are only 30 minutes drive from lots of historic and interesting places.
