Guest Reviews


    • “Just so English”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “My sister husband and myself stayed in this little cottage during our holiday to England. It was everything that three Aussies had envisioned an English cottage should be. The view from the conservatory at the back was a magnificent one of fields villages and distant Manchester. The cottage contained everything we needed and the excellent free Wi-Fi was an added bonus. One thing I would say is that the stairs are very narrow and quite steep but if you can manage this the view from the master bedroom is worth it. The small garden is over the road but is well presented. The road however can be a bit busy on the weekends. We loved this cottage and surrounds and would certainly return.”

    • “The cottage was lovely with lots of character and a modern twist having a heated conservatory with a beautiful view.”

    Mrs Butcher, High Wycombe, October 2015

    • “The house enjoys beautiful views and integrates well with the nature in the surroundings. It is very cosy and the owners have thought of everything you could need for a very pleasant stay. It has been recently sympathetically renovated such that the atmosphere is of a traditional English cottage, but with modern comforts. The locals are also very friendly and helpful. We had a super stay and look forward to returning!”

    Mr King, Oisterwijk, June 2015

    • “Location was well placed for exploring the wonderful Peaks area. Good to have parking very close to the property and nice to have a well equipped kitchen. Loved the conservatory and view over the hills.”

    Mrs Hasley, Woking, October 2014

    • “We loved the cottage, the open fire and the beautiful views from the conservatory. The cottage has everything you need including binoculars so you can take in the views from further afield. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to family and friends.”

    Mr Richardson, Eastbourne, October 2014

    • “The new conservatory is really a big attraction with the wonderful view across to Mellor church on its hill. Also the improvement to the drive does make it easier to reverse in. Another very pleasant stay. Thank you.”

    Mrs MacKay, Bognor Regis, July 2014

    • “We had a lovely week in the cottage, very peaceful, location was beautiful. If you enjoy walking, plenty of places to walk too, Church was well worth the walk. Will certainly go back.”

    Mr Hart, Canterbury. Kent, June 2014

    • “The cottage couldn't have been better. Everything we needed was there while still keeping the feel of a charming cosy cottage. The owners where also very friendly and helpful when needed. Many thanks for a lovely week.”

About the location


Chapel en le Frith 5 miles; Buxton 11 miles.

New Mills is a small town situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire, forming part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Dating back to the 13th century, the late 20th century saw the Torrs Riverside Park (‘the park under the town’) come into being a place for recreation and relaxation, along with the New Mills Heritage Centre, opened to promote tourism in the area. The Torrs Millennium Walkway, a much-admired bridge, is set deep in the gorge and attracts many visitors, while Chapel en le Frith, the Capital of the Peaks, is only 5 miles away, boasting a cobbled market place and historic old stocks. Within easy driving distance is the delightful spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. Within easy driving distance are the Blue John show caves at Castleton, the Chestnut Centre Otter & Owl Sanctuary, and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. An ideal base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.
