    “Derbyshire gem!”

    We had a lovely week here during the beginning of August, mostly dry weather as well! The accommodation and owners are superb, with the owners going out their way to help. We were a part of 6 (5x adults & 1 child aged 2), one of the adult guests is a wheelchair user. The accommodation is lovely and spacious, with every requirement you need from a CD player to a coffee maker, you name it, they pretty much had it! If you fancy baking, the kitchen is well equipped, many thanks for the complimentary ...

    We had a lovely week here during the beginning of August, mostly dry weather as well! The accommodation and owners are superb, with the owners going out their way to help. We were a part of 6 (5x adults & 1 child aged 2), one of the adult guests is a wheelchair user. The accommodation is lovely and spacious, with every requirement you need from a CD player to a coffee maker, you name it, they pretty much had it! If you fancy baking, the kitchen is well equipped, many thanks for the complimentary wine, eggs & fresh milk etc! The rooms and accompanying bathrooms are modern & spacious, very cosy. The wetroom downstairs was perfect for our accompanying disabled guest! The outside patio area is lovely with fantastic scenic views. My daughter loved the owners chickens! The cottage is a bit hard to find at first, but once you know how to get to it you are sorted! The cottage is also ideally located as it is central to most of the main places in Derbyshire. I can certainly reccomend this accommodation to any who are wanting to spend some quality time in such a wonderful part of our country!
