    “Lovely cottage with exceptional owners”

    We stayed in Acorn Cottage over the Christmas period in 2018. The cottage is in a great location - you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but it's not far at all to local pubs/restaurants, shops and other amenities, and it's a great base for exploring the Peak District. The cottage has ample parking for a couple of cars and is lovely inside - in winter it was very cosy with a woodburner in the lounge, and in summer I imagine it's nice sitting out in the garden or in the summerhouse ...

The cottage is in a great location - you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but it's not far at all to local pubs/restaurants, shops and other amenities, and it's a great base for exploring the Peak District. The cottage has ample parking for a couple of cars and is lovely inside - in winter it was very cosy with a woodburner in the lounge, and in summer I imagine it's nice sitting out in the garden or in the summerhouse. You'll find everything you need inside, and if there's anything extra you require (e.g. we needed another roasting dish to make Christmas dinner) then the owners Jo and Veronica are more than happy to oblige. In fact, Jo and Veronica were the best thing about this cottage. They made us feel so welcome with homemade mince pies, eggs, a Christmas card and even a few Christmas presents waiting for us when we got there. They've put together a few helpful folders of information such as local walks with dogs, general things to do in the area, recommended restaurants and takeaways... all of which we found very useful. They provided treats, bags and a bed for our dog (and a stair gate which was handy to stop her going upstairs), and they even brought their foster donkeys down to see us, which was a lovely thought. When our Christmas took an unexpected turn due to ill health, Jo and Veronica went out of their way to help us, which we really really appreciated. We'd love to go back one day - if not to the cottage then to the B&B which they run in their house opposite. Thank you again for everything!
