  • "Loved the location and the cottage overall and really liked the log burner and the shower If I had the odd criticism it is slightly tired compared to other places we’ve stayed and wasn’t the cleanest when we arrived, the kitchen and especially the cutlery / cupboards were a bit grubby and the hoovering / dusting in the lounge could have been better but once we’d had a wipe round we settled right in and enjoyed our stay."

    The TV and the internet are very intermittent so don’t expect nights in to be spent in front of the TV unless you like a BBC channel… but we didn’t go for that so weren’t overly concerned and finally the second bedroom bed was a bit uncomfortable but the central heating was awesome and the cottage was warm and welcoming all the time so please don’t think we didn’t enjoy our stay, it’s just that maybe a bit of an update and a kitchen refresh is in order for next season

    We stayed there for the weekend whilst we done some of the local walks and the cottage was perfect for what we needed. It’s more spacious than it looks in the photos too!

    Clean, cosy and well-thought-out. For example, the bottle of wine and milk was much appreciated. We spent 3 nights on a hiking visit. The boot room idea, (under the stairs) is brilliant. There are magnificent views in and around the village. Would definitely recommend!

    It was very clean, comfortable with beautiful views. We enjoyed the fire of an evening, made it very cozy and extra special. Hearing the birds tweet in the morning with the sound of church bells whilst sipping a lovely coffee, looking out of the window was just wonderful! We would definitely go back. Thank you!

  • "It’s the 4th time we are staying here."

    We love the cottage and the surroundings. The only reason we have not scored all 5s is because of the shower tray which makes it very difficult not to end up with water all over the floor and very wet towels. We are already looking at dates for next year and would highly recommend this cottage for a quiet location, yet 3 pubs and lovely walks on your door step.

    The little touches shows the owners really care. The location is excellent for exploring the Peak District and a short walk brings you to a range of shops. ( A shame both the chip shop and bakers were closed for renovations but the pub at the bottom of the hill did its best to make up.)

  • "Lovely cottage in a pretty area with very good local amenities."

    Cottage was clean and tidy, only slight drawback was the seating in the living room which was quite tight for 2 adults sitting together on the sofa. Perhaps an additional single chair (for which there is plenty of space) would be a good idea. A tray or two in the kitchen would be good too, but a minor point! The outdoor patios were lovely during our stay as we were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed a BBQ - although due to local restrictions on the sale of picnic BBQs you may need to travel out of the area or bring your own to use in the BBQ stand provided. As has been said before, parking can be quite tight and steep, but we were aware of this before booking. Beds, shower, and cooking facilities were all good and the bottle of wine in the fridge was much appreciated!

    Lovely cottage , well equipped, clean and comfortable with a gorgeous backdrop from the garden. Ideal village location for Great walking either from the door or within ten minutes drive. Hope, Castleton, Mam Tor, Monsal Dale all easy to reach. Good co- op and fish and chip shop.Fresh eggs daily from cottage opposite. Only one of the three pubs had just opened but understandable given no inside drinking and eating allowed yet. Great beer garden at the Old Bowling Green and fire pits of an evening. Great weather too which was a complete bonus. We parked in the next lane no problem, would definitely recommend Lees cottage and Bradwell.

  • "Less Cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable!"

    The owners kindly left some goodies for us and a lovely vase of daffodils which was very much appreciated. The cupboard under the stairs with its heater was a godsend as we got very muddy out on our walks and had to rinse a few things through at the end of the day. The only thing missing, that would have made things easier was a washing machine but can appreciate that room is tight in the kitchen. Parking was a bit of an issue as we had two late nights out and couldn't find a space in the village on our return so had to park down on the main road and walk up! We should have made use of the bus service that runs along the bottom road but didn't think about it soon enough. Although we loved the cottage we probably wouldn't stay again because of the issue with parking.
