  • "We loved every minute of our stay regardless of whatever the weather may be outside."

    It was perfect to watch the world go by, sheep and lambs in the fields, people passing along the footpath or the changing weather up on the Mam Tor range. One thing that did concern us at time of the booking was the listing noted no freezer, but could use the owners. This was not quite true as the fridge had a large ice box which could easily store frozen peas, ice blocks etc which was ample for our needs.

  • "Our second visit to Heath Cottage, and we can't wait to return again - a wonderful little hideaway, very cosy and well equipped with beautiful views over the hills."

    The location is perfect for exploring the hills and then retreating back to at the end of a long day's walking. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to come back!

  • "A comfortable cottage in an excellent location for walks up to Kinder Scout and Mam Tor from the door."

    Also a 10 minute walk across the fields to get to the pub in Edale. The farm location was very quiet with only the sound of the sheep, and the views were fabulous. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We hope to return.

  • "The cottage was small but cosy."

    The kitchen was very well equipped. The sitting area was comfy. The bed was very comfortable and the duvet was snuggly. The location was excellent - 10 minutes walk to the pubs across decent paths that are manageable in the dark (with a torch). Also just 10 minutes walk to the start of the Pennine Way and the ascent of Kinder Scout. As New Year guests, we really appreciated the chocolates and sparkling wine, as well as coffee and milk. The coloured lights decorating the farm were also lovely. Great place! Thank you.

    It's perfectly located for walking straight from the cottage, but equally as easy to drive from further afield for other walks, and the pub and village store were only a 10 minute walk away with the train station not much further. We will definitely be back in the future!

    Lovely property just big enough for two. Well equipped and very comfortable. Only thing we could think of that would be an improvement would be the addition of a small foot stool for resting weary legs on whilst sitting on the sofa at the end of a day of walking.

    Very clean and despite the Covid-19 restrictions we felt welcomed when we arrived with fresh flowers on the table. Amazing location for walking with a footpath outside and a view of the hills. The walk to the village is along a farm track and footpath, it takes 10 mins and you st the nags head. The cottage was perfect to rest in after a long day of walking.

    Stunning views out of the living room windows, a lovely little patio set and fresh flowers all made this a great stay. The cottage was very clean, cosy and warm (we stayed in December).

The cottage come equipped with loo roll, washing up liquid, salt, pepper and other basics. Would definitely re-book!

    The cottage was just right not too big , not too small, everything worked although it had a funny television set up. The owners of the property were helpful friendly and although very busy due to the lambing time were always willing to talk about sheep. The property was really out in the country side at the end of a single track lane which really needed a few more passing points so timing was important when coming and going. The scenery from the cottage is awe inspiring I have never been so impressed, the weather was good so the Peaks were showing their full glory. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who loves the country side.

    The cottage had more than everything we needed. Very friendly owners who on our arrival explained fully about the workings of the cottage. It is on a sheep farm and our visit coincided with lambing time which is obviously an extremely busy time for the owners. Even so Mr andMrs Gee went out of their way to explain the workings of the farm. We spent a very pleasant week in beautiful countryside surrounded by sheep and lambs and learnt a lot. We wii return.
