Everything about this cottage was outstanding. I would highly recommend this cottage to everyone considering a holiday in the area.

The cottage was in a very peaceful location with some pretty walks from the door. The owners have put a lot of effort into ensuring that their guests have a very comfortable and relaxing break. There were even treats for us and our dog!

Mrs Rogerson, Romford, February 2013
This was an outstanding holiday cottage, with many generous features like a welcoming bottle of wine and full central heating. The owners were very helpful and every possible detail has been thought of for maximum comfort. The cottage is situated in an idyllic spot tucked away up a quiet lane, and we were tickled pink to be snowed in during our stay so we enjoyed the scenic wonderland on our doorstep!
Ms Conder, Chester, February 2013
Beautiful cottage with quality furnishings and fittings. Quiet rural area, perfect for a 'get away from it all' holiday.
Mr Hunt, Thetford, November 2012
We stayed at this cottage in October half term after doing a lot of research on line. We were not disappointed, it was a lovely cottage in a lovely area and only 5 minutes into Matlock. The cottage had everything you could need and was very warm and comfortable. The owners were very accommodating and put in a lot of effort into making you welcome. They took the children to feed and collect eggs from the animals on their small holding. The children thought it was great. Brilliant holiday, would recommend.
Mr Gowing, Great Yarmouth, October 2012
It would be far to find better accommodation and a better welcome. We had a wonderful week and hope to return in the near future.
Mrs Burn, Chesterfield, October 2012
We loved the cottage it was very homely and the owners were very welcoming. They were there if we needed them but not if we didn't, just the right balance.
Mrs Robson, Blaydon-on-Tyne, September 2012
Lovely owners. Attention to detail with lots of little extras we haven't had at other holiday cottages. Very high standard kitchen and bathroom. Dogs made welcome. Sufficient parking as described.
