    Very clean and well-equipped kitchen. Good heating and lighting everywhere. Comfortable beds. We really liked the cottage and its location (great for walkers), and would stay again.

  • "A beautiful cottage perfectly located for a countryside holiday."

    Everything about the cottage was perfect, so clean and everything you could possibly need was there! I felt reassured that we could call the owners for anything, however we never needed to. We found it to be cosy yet had plenty of space for a family of 4 which includes a teenager and a 12 year old (who could have separate rooms) and a small dog (who might I add loved the freedom of running around in the yard safely and was very happy to be left a treat of dog biscuits, very thoughtful) the kids loved the rope swing on the big oak tree in the field and were entertained by finding cows there a few times (avoiding the cow pats was fun!) So many amazing walks literally on the doorstep and lovely places to visit nearby. I cannot praise this property enough, I didn't want to leave!

    Not as described. The quality of the furnishings was poor. Sofas very uncomfortable. The lounge and kitchen were very dark at all times. The oil boiler fumes came into the kitchen if the window was open. Could not recommend and would not return. Very disappointed.

    We found it to be very welcoming , warm and cosy immaculately clean and tidy, with clean ,comfortable bedrooms ,cosy living-room ,a good upstairs bathroom , a handy downstairs toilet/shower and a well-equipped kitchen . This cottage is a great credit to the owners Janice and Barry . On our arrival there were cut flowers ,tea ,coffee, biscuits, milk in the fridge , even some doggy biscuits and a bottle of wine - all much appreciated .We Loved the peace and privacy , the only neighbours being the birds and rabbits spotted in the field and surrounding woods. We spent most of our time out walking our favourite walks in the Peak District ,the cottage providing a welcome return . There are nearby walking routes if you don't want to go far , or leave the car behind for a change- Cromford canal is just across the road , and the surrounding woodland up to the old railway line are interesting to explore . Also , local bus and rail travel are within easy reach and seem to be frequent during the day .We would recommend Oak Tree cottage to anyone who loves the countryside and nature and wants a relaxing break . Thankyou again to Janice and Barry for making our stay a very pleasant and enjoyable one .

  • "We had a lovely stay at Oak Cottage."

    The cottage was spacious, well maintained and spotlessly clean. There is a barn with laundry room, BBQ etc and also dog crates and dog towels. Its all very well thought out and organised. It was perfect for the dogs with a gate into the adjacent field and walks up the woods or along canal, High Peak Trail. The cottage and garden was very private. Its lovely to hear tawny owls at night and the song birds during the day. You do hear the noise from the A6 but I have to say it didn't really bother us. It may be more of an issue in the summer time if you want to sit outside. The cabin with fire and cooking facilities is lovely and again very well equipped and organised. We will definitely stay there again with our friends and dogs.

It was a tremendous base for a family with 2 dogs as we walked to the black rocks and along the Cromford canal. The cottage was spotlessly clean and Barry and Janice had provided a super starter pack of tea, coffee, wine, biscuits and dog biscuits. We met Barry a couple of times when he was working and both he and Janice are super friendly and happy to share their knowledge of the area. And after a day spent walking it was wonderful to relax in the lodge with the fire going, some music playing and a few drinks. Would definitely go again.

    Whilst the cottage was beautifully clean, the facilities are not good. We were not met with the warmest of welcomes. We arrived 20 minutes early and were made to sit in the car until 3pm, whilst the own did the cleaning. So believe me people when it say no early check in, they mean it!!!!!! The cottage is supposed to be suitable for 6 people, it sleeps 6 very comfortably, but the lounge and kitchen area doesn't. It does have outdoor space which would make it easier in summer if you can shout over the noise from the A6. So if there are 4 adults who are happy to eat out or have takeaways, it would be ideal.

Our two satnavs couldn't locate it by address or postcode, but the owners talked us in! Don't let that put you off, though: it's a lovely cottage, with nice touches like biscuits for both humans and their furry friends, and the cabin is gorgeous!

    This is the third time we have used them and we will continue to do so. Oak Tree Cottage was perfect! Beautifully decorated and proportioned rooms. There were only two of us and 2 dogs, but there is seating for 6 in the lounge and around the kitchen table. Two bathrooms and three good sized rooms. Very efficient heating and hot water. The location set back off the main road, but very quiet. The whole property is dog proof - we have a 16 week old puppy who remained contained. There is the immediate surrounding space outside the cottage, and then a fully fenced field across the drive way which is perfect. Walks from the cottage were great, up into the woods then onto the High Peak Trail, or an easy walk along the canal to Cromford takes about 30 minutes.

There was a very welcome tea tray ready for our arrival plus milk in the fridge, fresh flowers and a bowl of freshly picked apples and plums which was a very kind thought. The patio area outside was a very good spot to sit and watch the birds on the feeders whilst the Nordic cabin was great for the evenings.There is also easy access to walks through the woods from the field and just across the road walks along the Cromford canal were a pleasure and easy going with a pram. After walking to Cromford we had an enjoyable meal in the Boat Inn and walking to Whatstandwell we found The Family Tree an excellent place for lunch. I can also recommend a visit to Carsington Water for walks, bird spotting, shopping and food and a ride on the Ecclesbourne Valley Heritage Line to the pretty little town of Wirksworth where we found the staff at the Hope and Anchor very friendly.Yes as previously mentioned there is some road noise as the cottage is just off the A6 but this in no way spoiled our holiday here.

    The layout was really good as the downstairs bedroom and shower room were on one side of the living area and could be made private by closing a door. Janice and Barry were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Barry even popped over at very short notice to replace a bleeping smoke alarm battery. A beautiful vase of roses were a lovely welcoming touch too. The towels were amazingly fluffy, white and soft and they supplied plenty of towels for the kitchen as well. They even provided plenty of dish washer tablets, soap in all the bathrooms and loads of games like pictionary in case the weather was wet. We were however blessed with glorious weather so the BBQ and pizza over (yes, really) were brilliant. The location suited us very well. We could cross over the A6 to the canal for a gentle flat walk into Cromford or head out the back, up the hill to join the High Peak Trail towards Black Rock. We would thoroughly recommend Oak Tree Cottage.

  • "An excellent cottage: comfortable and very well appointed."

    Mr and Mrs Wilmot, owners, met us on our arrival by prior arrangement and, despite being about to go away on holiday themselves , gave us a full and most helpful briefing.. The particular configuration of the house was very important for us as a friend joining us has serious mobility problems and the downstairs bedroom and bathroom were therefore necessary. Altogether a very well equipped cottage.
