  • "Lovely cottage, Would recommend, would definitely come back"

    Reviewed by PhilSep 2019

  • "It should be made clear that the 'cottage' is a ground floor accommodation and noise can be heard from the upstairs neighbours."

    Although is was minimal. It is on the very, very busy A6 road and cars do speed along it. Although the noise from the road is low, it can be busy to cross back and forward to the car park. Cottage is a fantastic base to explore the White District of the Peaks.

    Thanks for your feedback and I'm sorry this happened. The cause was investigated and resolved amicably with yourself and the owner. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely well furnished cottage, very cosy and comfortable."

    And great value for money! Only two slight problems with this cottage are very patchy wifi and noise from upstairs. If you're sat in the living room area you can hear the TV from people living upstairs, them moving about, and their voices.

  • "The cottage would benefit from central heating, kept on a low heat in the colder months."

    This was more noticeable in the kitchen, where the walls were very damp and mould was noticeable near the window. Otherwise a cute little cottage

  • "I most enjoyed soaking up the character and charm of the accommodation."

    Its rustic construction with modern facilities were an enjoyable contrast. These facilities were all first class though a washing machine would have been helpful to us. Everyone was kind and helpful and the cafe, across the road, provided a real treat for an occasional coffee break. We both enjoyed the canal and woodland walks, nearby, which would suit most peoples requirements. As visitors, who relied on public transport, we planned our days accordingly, which, in the main, went very well, but a car would have been useful. I do appreciate that we are very much in the minority here. I hope to stay here again.

  • "We had a great time at Flag Cottage - the location is fantastic for getting around the Peak District, and even though the accommodation is just off the main road, it is very quiet and peaceful."

    We felt very cosy and at home, and loved the 'old' feel of the cottage. And it was nice and warm, even though it was freezing cold outside. The kitchen was well equipped - we found everything we needed. We can definitely recommend this as a great base for exploring the Peak District

The village of Whatstandwell sits beside the River Derwent, located close to its better known neighbours of Cromford, Matlock, Matlock Bath and the popular village of Crich. The area, located in the Peak District National Park, is full of history, with the National Tramway Museum a particular favourite amongst visitors to the area. Matlock, just a few miles away, offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as Gulliver's Kingdom. Magnificent views of the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car that takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham - a great place for all the family with its show caves, nature trail, water gardens and owl maze. The nearby High Peak Cycle Trail provides a wonderful experience while further to the north the market town of Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Park, Haddon Hall and Carsington Water are not to be missed!
