    • “Marple cottage is a home from home. Every room is tastefully decorated and furnished. When we had snow during our stay we were happy to light the wood burner and snuggle down for the day. The aga was a delight. It was quiet at night, private and close to both city and country.”

    • “We had a very enjoyable stay at Kitty's. The cottage is comfortable, clean and very well equipped.”

    Mr Sykes, Sheffield, November 2015

    • “Loved everything! A wonderful cottage, truly a home from home, we couldn't have asked for anything better. It was clean, comfy, well equipped, with super comfy beds and bedding, and was quiet. The AGA was incredible to cook on, we usually eat out but it was a real pleasure cooking every night!”

    Mrs Tobin, Salford, August 2015

    • “One of the nicest holiday homes I have stayed in. The owners were friendly and helpful. Our holiday there was just perfect.”

    Mrs MacGregor, Didcot, June 2015

    • “We had a wonderful time at Kitty's - a very convenient situation for just about everything, but still enjoying the peace and quiet of the position on a dairy farm. The cottage was immaculate, very well furnished, with a wonderful dining kitchen (with Aga) and great bathroom facilities. The excellent central heating was a blessing as we had everything from sunshine to snow during our vacation! I would have no hesitation in recommending Kitty's Cottage to anyone and if we are ever in the UK again, we would certainly book this cottage.”

    Mrs Taylor, Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro, April 2015

    • “The cottage is really beautiful and it is in a very quiet and peacefully area. The house is big, well furnished and nicely decorated. I liked the kitchen with the big window and the interesting Aag cooker. Very comfortable that every room has its own bathroom.”

    Mrs Susi, Studen, April 2015

    • “It was in a lovely quiet location but a short drive away from lots of things to see/do. Accommodation was wonderful, more like staying in someone's own home due to the level of care and attention given to everything you might need, rather than a holiday rental.”

    Mrs Adams, Farnham, February 2015

    • “We have stayed at Kittys before. The cottage is perfect for a relaxing break. The owners are very welcoming and the extra touches of flowers, cake and wine etc., are extremely thoughtful. We would certainly recommend this cottage to family and friends.”

    Mrs Robinson, Cirencester, January 2015

    • “This is our second time staying at Kitty's and our stay was just as good as the first! The owners are lovely and very helpful. Kitty's is very comfortable and cozy and the scenery is just beautiful! We will definitely be back!”

    Ms Gray, Suwanee, October 2014

    • “The property was like a home from home - warm comfortable and plenty of room. There was lots of lovely walks in the area and we also visited local attractions. The owners of the property were friendly and gave lots of advice about local walks etc.”

    Mr Milne, Middlesbrough, October 2014

    • “The house was very cosy and well furnished, we felt very much at home and had a wonderful stay. Everything was very child friendly and the hospitality was fantastic.”

    Ms Dettmer, Berlin, September 2014

    • “The house was really cosy, with everything we needed for a girls get together. The beds were comfy, rooms were spacious and there were plenty of bathrooms available. The lovely countryside is on your doorstep!”

    Miss Stock, Hatfield, September 2014

    • “The cottage was great and the owner really welcoming and friendly. Located on a farm with lovely views, the cottage has recently been renovated and furnished to a high standard. There are great places to eat nearby and it is convenient for Manchester and walking in the Peak District. Marple Locks are worth a visit.”
