"A lovely location the park is great for small children."
"The location was excellent as we were holidaying with grandchildren & the playground out front was well used, The cottage was nicely presented & well equipped."
Our only issue was the lack of information regarding certain issues- How to use the Tv & the PlayStation to watch children’s DVDs. Also adequate instructions for rubbish disposal- there were only two Green waste bags for a week & no information as to which Green waste went in it & where to put it! We ended up leaving it under the sink -sorry! Overall a very enjoyable stay in mixed weather & would definitely use again.
Hi David, thanks so much for your feedback, we have purchased a larger green bin for the yard following your comments for the rubbish disposal as our original green bin had gone missing!! So no problem to leave the food in the food bin under the sink. Thanks for leaving the cottage so very tidy and glad that you were able to use the play station, apologies for it being confusing. We look forward to seeing you again for a holiday in Bonsall . We like to help guests and are happy to receive calls to resolve any issues as soon as possible when they are staying. We only live a few minutes up the road, so happy to help out with information about the cottage or local information! Kind regards John and Maxine. Property Owner
"We loved the cosiness and character of this property and the fact that there was a park just outside the front door was a big bonus for my grandsons aged 8 and 12."
The welcome basket and fresh flowers on the table were a nice touch and appreciated. I would just suggest a mirror in the main double bedroom would have been helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
Hi Carolyn, thanks for your lovely feedback, we like to welcome our guests with fresh flowers and a welcome pack of goodies. So glad you loved our cosy and characterful cottage., All kids love Park Cottage as it is next to the village Park where they can use the playground equipment and play football and explore the wooded area above the park. We have bought a new big mirror for the main bedroom. We hope to see you again for another visit to Bonsall. Property Owner

Benefitting from fabulous countryside views, character features and easy access to the market town of Bakewell and Chatsworth House, Park Cottage is a fantastic dwelling for a family of six or group of friends with their canine companions to explore the wonders of the Peak District.
Be welcomed into the spacious sitting room, where you can look forward to cosying up on the sofa in front of your favourite TV show courtesy of the TV with Freeview and DVD player as well as an Xbox for keeping the children entertained, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.
Rustle up culinary delights in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, with five-ring rangemaster, microwave and dishwasher, as well as a handy washing machine housed in the utility cupboard, so there is no need to bring your whole wardrobe away with you!
Gather around the dining table for six, as you savour a tasty meal and toast to a wonderful getaway.
If the weather is nice why not dine alfresco out on the private patio and fire up the barbecue?
Completing the ground-floor is a shower room, where you can enjoy a refreshing rinse after a day of exploring.
Climb the stairs to the first-floor, where you will find a bathroom, perfect for indulging in a blissful bubble bath before catching your rest in one of three well-presented bedrooms, two doubles and a twin.
Awake from a leisurely slumber and sip a steaming cup of coffee out in the front garden, as you watch the children play nearby in the play area.
Take a leisurely wander into Bonsall, where you will find the welcoming Kings Head, a pub serving scrumptious home-cooked meals and local ales, ideal for those fuss-free evenings where you don’t feel like cooking.
There are also the delightful Fountains Tearooms and the beautiful Cascades Gardens for a peaceful stroll.
Just a short drive away is Matlock, home to the Pic Tor War Memorial with stunning views at its top and the Peak Rail where you can hop aboard a vintage steam train for an exciting ride through the scenic Peak District.
Head over to Matlock Bath, where you can catch an alpine-style cable car at The Heights of Abraham, which offers cavern tours and a fossil museum, treat the little ones to an aquarium trip with arcades, delve into history at the Peak District Mining Museum or enjoy a memorable fun-filled family day at Gulliver’s Kingdom.
Continue down to Wirksworth where you can treat the family to a film at the quirky independent cinema, learn more about the village at the heritage centre or explore the Puzzle Gardens.
Be sure to make time for a trip to Bakewell, home to a historic 13th-century five arched bridge that leads you to the bustling town centre filled with restaurants, tearooms and pubs, as well as dessert shops offering the famous Bakewell Pudding.
Don’t forget to stop by the grand stately home of Chatsworth House, where you can tour the magnificent interiors and extensive gardens complete with labyrinth.
