  • "Couldn't recommend Hoobrook Cottage enough."

    We went as a family of 7 of all different ages and we all had a wonderful time. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived and we were delighted with the lovely Hamper Kate and Ruth provided for us. The cottage is well equipped and had everything we needed and more. The beds were so comfy we all struggled to get out of them in the mornings! We had some lovely walks and we had a gorgeous meal at the Red lion pub. Would love to return to Hoobrook at some point in the future.

    It was spotless, well equipped and they provided lots of information about the accommodation and local days out. We would not hesitate to return. The village is peaceful, the setting idyllic and within easy reach of Matlock, Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton. Beautiful walks on the doorstep. Utility room accommodated our dog crate easily. All in all a welcome and enjoyable break. Thank You.

  • "We had the most amazing weekend for my moms 50th birthday."

    Upon arrival there was a beautiful hamper filled with goodies and a birthday balloon, which was a thoughtful lovely touch. We walked up to the Black Lion pub for a couple of drinks on our first day, so that we could make the most of the hot tub for the rest of the afternoon. Whilst sat in the hot tub it was amazing to see so many birds and even some cows. We had a ride to Buxton the next day and the scenery around the area was truly beautiful. Overall, Hoobrook Cottage was clean, the facilities were brilliant. We had a small issue with the shower not draining on the first day, however, this was not an issue at all as the owners were so attentive and helpful. I can’t find a fault. Thank you so much for having us.

    Wonderful cottage, spotlessly clean, well furnished. Owners have thought of everything. Hot tub is amazing, so relaxing to sit and watch the birds come to the bird table right next to the hot tub (owners leave bird food, binoculars and a book on birds), even had a cow wander down to brink from the brook every day. Such a quiet location but easy to get to off the main road. Black Lion pub within walking distance (but menu not to our liking). Drove into Hartington every day as two lovely places for breakfast. Nothing to fault about Cottage at all. Highly recommend.

  • "We had a great time."

    The cottage was lovely. There were a lot of nice touches like a selection of board games and DVDs. There was a very thoughtful welcome basket full of bread, treats (for the dogs as well), wine and even a blanket which was very appreciated on the colder nights. The hot tub was great and well maintained as we noticed the owners checked it regularly. There was a detailed book full of information including how to use the hot tub and the log fire and even sample menus from restaurants in the area. They also left us an envelope full of leaflets on attractions and things to do. It is a very rural area so there was no phone signal but we didn't really find this to be an issue as the cottage had WiFi. Lots of wildlife and it was lambing season so there were many cute lambs around which I have so many photos of. We did a lot of hikes such as travelling from Ilam Park to the Dovedale Stepping stones (we highly recommend printing out directions as there is no signal. Wellies are essential unless you fancy getting your trainers stuck in mud like I did lol Those with lower mobility should skip the trail and take the road route round or just park at the Dovedale Stepping Stones instead). Parking at Ilam park and Dovedale are expensive so take change or find somewhere free to park. We also did Thors Cave (We would recommend hiking boots for this one and again to print any directions as no signal - prepare for a hike up a mountain like trail which can be uneven). Both of these were not that far away from the cottage. We went on a lot of adventures like these during the day and spent the evening unwinding in the cottage and hot tub. The only "bad" feedback I would give is that the beds were a bit hard and uncomfortable for us but we're all used to memory foam mattresses so that's probably why. Otherwise we all had a lovely time and were sad to be leaving.

    The cottage is lovely, nothing could be improved. Does really feel like the owners have thought of everything. Amazing welcome hamper, never had anything like that before and we always stop in self-catering cottages. Such a nice quiet location but not far from main road so easy to visit places in the Peak District. Hot tub was fantastic and so lovely that the birds come to the bird table while you are in it (and that the owners very kindly leave bird seed to put out and a bird book to help identify which ones we saw). Not sure you could park two cars, we managed one medium sized car but you could easily park in the lane by the cottage if that was a problem. Lovely pub within walking distance (The Black Lion Inn). Really was the small touches that made everything perfect. We went to Hartington for breakfast every day and that was about a 10 minute drive but a lovely little village with several tea rooms (Beresford Tea Rooms was by far the best). Perfect location for visiting Peak District villages/Alton Towers. Had wonderful day out at Chatsworth House which is about a 45 minute drive.

    We were a party of four and a dog and had a fabulous holiday. Upon arrival we were greeted with an amazing hamper which included two bottles of wine, gorgeous biscuits, bread, block of butter and cake and two packets of dog treats plus milk in the fridge and coffee! By far the most generous hamper we have ever come across. The cottage was quaint, clean and very well equipped. The hot tub is a brilliant addition to the property and it's a 6 person one so plenty of room for the family. We've never had one before so it was a luxury for us and quite surreal to be in in the dark! We have never been birdwatching from a hot tub before but there is a bird table next to the tub and we regularly saw nuthatch, robin, dunnock, sparrow, coal tits and blue tits apparently unfazed by the bubbles and us! The cottage is also in a great location being close to all the major attractions of the peaks, including Alton Towers. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a well situated, comfortable, cosy stay and relaxing hot tub experience.

    Located in a lovely quiet village and the welcome hamper was a lovely surprise, as was a handy loaf of bread and milk and butter in the fridge. We would definitely stay again.

  • "A lovely, well-equipped cottage."

    Clean and comfortable. The hot tub was an amazing addition, as was the thoughtful welcome hamper. Butterton was quiet and peaceful with lovely walks. The village pub was fantastic - we had two very delicious meals there and enjoyed playing pool and darts on wet days. Although the cottage would sleep 6 comfortably, we were pleased that 2 of our party of 6 were unable to come. It would have been a squeeze. We had to move the sofas to fit 4 around the dining table. Plus only 5 allowed in the hot tub.

    The location is perfect, very tranquil and ideal for local walks. The cottage was very cosy with excellent facilities, especially the hot tub which looks out on to a flower-laden meadow with grazing cows and hedges full of bird life. The local pub was also lovely, very friendly with great food and only a 5-minute walk. We were also greeted with a very generous, high quality hamper on arrival…we wound definitely recommend to anyone and will no doubt be back at some point in the future

    We had good luck with the weather, too. The village of Butterton exceeded our expectations, somehow we had never considered it before when planning visits in the Peak District. It is a lovely, unspoilt village with a charming pub and still has a choice of great walks around.

    Slightly small shared areas for a family of 5 plus dog but my kids are teens now so maybe need more space! Fabulous welcome hamper on arrival and cottage had everything we needed for a lovely week. Lovely to be able to walk out the door with the dog and within a couple of miles be on the manifold way. Good local pubs and ran out of time rather than things to do. Thank you!

With a beautiful feeling of rural living, Butterton is also close to the pretty village of Hartington with two pubs, a tea shop and Post Office, a village store selling a variety of local produce as well as everyday essentials and a cheese shop selling a variety of cheeses including those produced in their own creamery. Close by are the magnificent Manifold and Dove Valleys with their stunning gorges and rolling hillsides. Both have flat tracks and trails along the rivers, making them accessible for those who prefer a leisurely stroll or cycle. The Tissington, High Peak and Monsal trails, which are former railway lines now converted into leisure routes for walkers and cyclists, are a short drive away. If you require something a little more challenging, the famous millstone grit outcrop which is popular with walkers and cyclists, The Roaches, is also easily accessible. Also nearby, Tittesworth Reservoir is set in superb scenery, has a wonderful children's playground and visitor centre, and is a delight for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers.
