Guest Reviews


    • “Great accommodation for a weekend break”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We booked to stay here for a family weekend at the end of February 2015. There were 6 adults and one small baby (4 months). The cottage was well located, in a hamlet but at the end of the road with plenty of parking and easily accessible from both the East Midlands and Manchester for our whole party. The views from the property are great. The accommodation itself is lovely - three lovely sized rooms (the master in particular was HUGE and plenty of room for a travelcot). We have stayed in lots of cottages in the area and the bedrooms were definately the nicest. Lovely crisp linen and great fluffy pillows. The open plan dining and living area was light and with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was well equipt. We had ordered a Tesco delivery which arrived no problems. From the point of view of staying with children...top marks. Everything was spotless and both a highchair and travelcot were provided. There were also some children's books provided in the lounge. The only thing that would have made a difference and would have raised this to the level of something listed on Baby Boltholes or similar (although at a fraction of the cost!) was a baby monitor.”

    • “Great cottage, brilliant location to enjoy all that the Hope valley has to offer”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This cottage was wonderful; clean, comfortable, spacious, well equipped, quiet, warm with lots of hot water (important for february). I would return again. We have stayed in numerous cottages in Derbyshire in last 10 years, and in our experience, a great house needs to be coupled with a great location to get the most from your holiday and this fits both criteria very well. It is located in a hamlet, on a private road, with parking for 3 cars on the drive, but is close to a main road, (10 mins walk from convenience. Store) although you wouldn't know it (it is very quiet) so easy access to Bamford, Bradwell, Hope, Hathersage, and Castleton. The wine and biscuits which welcomed us was a nice touch, and the owner was really helpful prior to arrival suggesting some great walks for us to enjoy with our children (age 10 and 7) such as stanage edge for the great Rock climbing and also the lovely walks right from the cottage doorstep. There was nothing I didn't like about it.”

    • “Fantastic cottage near great walks and scenery”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have stayed in a number of cottages in this area and this is the best of all of them. Clean, extremely well equipped (especially the kitchen), very quiet but not far (walking distance) from pubs, cafes and great walks. Decent hikes start from the house as it is right next to a path taking you over to Brough and Castleton. Lovely bathroom, plush towels, heating whenever you want it (a rarity in our experience). Highly recommended, we will stay here again. For those of limited mobility, there is a bathroom on the ground floor and we found the stairs very good, as they were shallow and easy to climb. Bathroom tub was the only challenge, maybe the owners will put in a handle?”

    • “The house was cosy and warm with abundant hot water, and all amenities were perfect. It was also spotless, the beds comfortable and the general condition excellent.”

    Mr Bakr, St Leny De Provence, September 2015

    • “The cottage and everything in it and was very clean and well kept. The beds were very comfortable, again with quality sheets and duvets. The towels supplied were soft and fluffy. The cottage is situated in a very nice quiet private road in a lovely hamlet, but not remote, and in an ideal position to enjoy the northern area of the Peak District.”

    Mr Doe, Bishop's Stortford, September 2015

    • “Loose Hill Lea is very well presented, and is in an ideal location to explore the area. The house is very clean and has a nice feel to it with a lovely meadow next door. The neighbours are very friendly also, and we will return at some point. I would have no hesitation in recommending to anybody. There is plenty to do and see nearby, as well as further afield. Walkers right through to families with small children will not be disappointed.”

Also, near to a station so handy for those of our party arriving by public transport. I would thoroughly recommend this property. It was our first introduction to the Peak District and we hope to return.”

    Mrs Porter, Purley, April 2014

About the location


Hathersage 2 miles; Castleton 4 miles.

Shatton is a delightfully manicured hamlet nestled at the foot of a hill, surrounded by walks and beautiful countryside, between Hope and Hathersage, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. The picturesque village of Castleton is just four miles away, home to fascinating caves, and is overlooked by the crumbling Mam Tor or "Shivering Mountain". From the remains of the hill fort at the top of Mam Tor, the dramatic scenery of Winnats Pass, Edale Valley and Edale itself, known as the start of the Pennine Way can be viewed. Visit Hathersage to explore the churchyard and the grave of Little John (of Robin Hood fame) - whether he ever really existed is for you to decide, plus Hathersage vicarage is thought to be the inspiration Charlotte Bronte’s famous novel Jane Eyre. For a village of its size there is a very good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat, as well as a public, open air heated swimming pool and a railway station with direct links to Manchester and Sheffield. Slightly further afield you can potter around the historic market town of Bakewell, or the Spa town of Buxton, renowned for its spring water and Opera House. It is easy to spend a whole day at Chatsworth House, while there are plenty of historic properties nearby. Pull on your boots and enjoy the spectacular scenery, with walks for all abilities from ambling along the banks of the River Derwent to climbing the hillside paths and scrambling over the fascinating rock formations. Play golf at the Sickleholme Golf Course just a mile away, or explore a web of cycling trails, with bike hire available on the Monsal Trail and at the Derwent/Ladybower Reservoir. A beautiful base for exploring the Peak District!
