  • "Cottage was wonderful - we had a great time and everything was clean and new."

    We did not have any issues during our stay and would book again if we came back to the Peak District.

  • "We enjoyed our break in Holly Cottage."

    A nice spacious cottage, newly converted, with an interesting history. Spotlessly clean, well equipped with a lovely view. Sally is a great host, available and friendly but not intrusive.
