  • "The cottage was exactly as advertised, The welcome gift pack was very much appreciated."

    The cottage was very comfortable, home from home. Full of character, just what we were looking for. Well located in the peaceful village of Brassington, for travelling to various areas. The wood burner made it all the more cosy, the lounge was a lovely place to sit and relax. Would not hesitate to recommend, Would definitely rebook when returning to the Peak District.

    Thanks Caroline for your lovely review. We are so pleased you had a good time. When we go away, we love to feel comfortable and cosy, so that’s what we have tried to provide. It’d be lovely to see you back one day in the future. All the best. Trudy & Rob Property Owner

  • "Walton House really is a wonderful cottage in a delightful village."

    We stayed for Christmas and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome, the owners put in a real Christmas tree and decorated. There was also a lovely welcome package when we got there. The chest full of toys and games kept us all entertained and the roaring fire made us all very comfy! The sitting room was definitely our favourite part with ample seating and it was very cosy. The facilities in the cottage were ideal. You can tell the owners have put a lot of care into the cottage. I would recommend this cottage for any season, we have discussed coming back during the summer to make use of the garden and sunloungers whilst explore the many walks nearby! Thank you for a lovely week.

    We are delighted you had a lovely Christmas. Thank you for your lovely words. We think the cottage is quite special too and look forward to you returning! Property Owner

  • "Walton House was very cosy and the welcome pack left by the owners was very thoughtful."

    Even though my partner is 6 foot 5 and struggled a little with the height of some of the doors, the cottage was well placed for all the attractions and we would certainly have no problem renting this premises again. It was easy to park and the cottage was a fantastic place to come back to after a long day out.
