    It was quite wet last week and we washed stuff daily. Perhaps include instructions for operating the microwave too. I use a different type and couldn’t work it out. Other than that a great property and excellent value for money.

    The treats on arrival were delightful, thank you!! Our daughter loved seeing the goats every morning and night, I think she would have brought them home if she could! The cottage was spotless and had everything it needed, cot and high chair was provided for us and already in the cottage on arrival. The only thing we would to say improve on would be the bbq, it wasn’t the cleanest so we didn’t really want to use it BUT this wouldn’t stop us from returning for another stay at Robins rest…..only this time child free!!

    My wife and I have stayed in lots of cottages and lodges throughout the UK, we have high standards and expectations and found Robin’s Rest to be amongst the best we’ve stayed in. The location is perfect for visiting both the Peak District and the various potteries in the Staffordshire area. As a keen runner I found the various lanes south / south west of the cottage to be quiet and ideal for my morning runs. We have recommended Robin’s Rest to family and friends and hope to return when next staying in the area.
