    • “We have just spent a week in this beautiful cosy cottage and it was wonderful. The very thick stone walls made it totally sound proof . It is set in the county with fantastic views in a very peacefull setting and is a animal and bird lovers paradise. The owners thoughtful organisation made it that everything you could ever need was provided. The property is VERY dog friendly and our dogs were welcomed as much as we were. We strongly recommend this lovely spacious well equipped comfortable cottage were we felt really at home.”

    • “The cottage was lovely-the way you would have converted it if you had done it yourself! It was very well equipped too. However the best thing was the welcome we had and the time and patience from the owners sharing their time and their animals. We found it the ideal place to meet up with our extended Derbyshire family.”

    • “Would definitely recommend. This beautiful cottage had everything we needed with 3 en suite bedrooms which was essential as we had our 2 elderly mothers with us. We had glorious weather which was the icing on the cake and enabled us to explore this lovely part of Derbyshire. Will definitely return one day”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed in this home from home for the bank holiday at the beginning of May The cottage has three lovely bedrooms all with ensuite which is great for a group of friends or a large family party. The kitchen had everyting we needed and the lounge was so cosy with the wood burner going. Plenty of heat and hot water. Outside there is a seating area in view of the donkey paddock (Ned loves apples!) but it was too cold for us to use the bbq. The views over the valley are spectacular and because you are at the end of a lane about half a mile from the main road, it is safe for children and animals. We will be back in the autumn.”

    • “This is our fourth visit to Cuckoostone Cottage. As always a most pleasant welcome from the owners and a most enjoyable stay. The cottage is warm and comfortable and meets our needs in every way. We hope to return for a fifth visit some time soon.”

    Miss Weldrake, Iron Acton, October 2015

    • “The cottage was first class, in lovely quiet location, with beautiful views and the owners were very friendly and helpful.”

    Mrs Sykes, West Drayton, July 2015

    • “The best cottage we have been to so far. A real country cottage with good views and surrounded by animals.”

    Mr Mountain, Southport, June 2015

    • “A beautiful location with wonderful views over the Derbyshire countryside but not too isolated, only ten minutes into Matlock for shops and restaurants etc. It was a lovely roomy cottage, each bedroom having its own bathroom was very useful. A great holiday.”

    Mrs Mott, St. Leonards-on-Sea, May 2015

    • “"Cuckoostone was probably the most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in with lots of kitchen implements. The cottage was lovely and warm; easy to heat with everything on one level. There was the added bonus of a bathroom per bedroom. The owner could not have been a better hostess and the cottage was in a lovely situation; secluded and quiet but central for a whole host of interesting places."”

    Ms Tye, Skinburness, March 2015

    • “Cuckoostone Cottage was a delight, as was the animals. Particularly liked the lambs, and of course the views were stunning.”

    Mrs Walker, Lincoln, March 2015

    • “Quiet, excellent views, peaceful and relaxing. Had a warm welcome from the owners - nothing was too much trouble. The well equipped kitchen meant we could have a belated Christmas cook in and then collapse in front of the wood burner. Had a lovely large porch for the storage of boots, coats and doggy towels.”

    Miss Thomas, Norwich, February 2015

    • “Couldn't fault the property in any way - a real home from home.”

    Mr Gibson, Coaley, November 2014

    • “This is our third visit to Cuckoostone Cottage and it certainly won't be our last. We simply cannot fault it. We are a party with an age range from 4 to 80 and this cottage meets the needs of everyone. It is warm, cosy and so well appointed. The owner is very welcoming and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Our 4 year old son particularly likes the animals and going out to see Ned the donkey every day. Spot on!”

    Miss Weldrake, Iron Acton, October 2014

    • “Excellent Cottage, quiet rural location and charming owners.”

    Mr Lyons, WIVENHOE, September 2014

    • “The owners were very welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. All in all, a very good weeks holiday.”

About the location


Matlock Bath 1 mile; Bakewell 8 miles.

The popular Peak District town of Matlock, together with its neighbour, Matlock Bath, has been attracting visitors to the area since the spa was developed in the late 17th century. Set in the beautiful wooded gorge of the River Derwent, the Matlocks offer a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a host of attractions including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham – a great place for all the family with its showcaves, nature trail, water gardens and Owl Maze. South of the town is the start of the High Peak Cycle Trail, whilst a short drive away is the National Tramway Museum at Crich. To the north are the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House and Park - not to be missed!
