We loved everything! Would recommend; only got back Sunday and looking to book again for summer.

Miss Davies, Normanton, February 2014

Cottage warm, comfortable and with plenty of space. Log fire really good and gentleman servicing the lodge absolutely brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, he brought logs everyday. Particularly impressed with the way he serviced the hot tub every morning; at Dimmingsdale the filters were hosed off thoroughly every morning, water quality checked and the levels topped up - excellent service.

Mrs Ingleton, Salisbury, January 2014

Brilliant location for walks with the children and great setting for a family new year together.

Miss Olney, Chesterfield, December 2013

Great get away. Wonderful walks, coming back to the hot tub was an added bonus. Log fire a big hit too.
