  • "Such a beautiful cottage in a perfect little village."

    Spotlessly clean, and everything taken care of for an easy stay from the dog to the cleaning supplies left. Welcome pack was a really lovely touch, thank you! Owners communication was 5 star! Village has pub/restaurant, chip shop, post office, sweet shop. The kids and adults loved our stay and will hopefully be back soon!

    Thank you for such a lovely review and we look forward to seeing you again soon Property Owner

  • "This was the most beautiful of cottages."

    Longnor is a lovely picturesque village with two shops and a fish and chip shop. Unfortunately the pub is closed for the foreseeable future. Everything you could need was provided. The standard of the furnishings and fittings was first class, 5* Hotel standard. The fantastic kitchen has a huge picture window looking on to the lovely little garden. We arrived at the same time as the snow and were snowed in for two whole days but we could walk to a neighbouring pub for lunch and sit by the log fire in the cottage of an evening. The cottage has great central heating and we couldn't have chosen a better place to be snowbound. Jooles and Mark contacted us to check we were ok and didn't need any supplies. We had more snow than most ski resorts this year. My sister and I will remember this holiday for ever.

    Thank you for your kind words and so pleased you were able to relax and enjoy your break despite the snow. Hope to see you again in warmer weather. Property Owner

    Longnor is an historical place with quaint facilities: grocery cum newspaper shop only yards away from the cottage, superb old fashioned fish and chip shop, and a welcoming cafe serving tasty hot meals and home made cakes to takeaway or eat inside. It is also well placed for all the beautiful villages, countryside , stately homes in the Peaks.

  • "A really lovely cottage, very thoughtfully equipped, small but beautiful garden, good facilities in the village of Longnor, given its size."

    About our only criticism is to not approach from the direction of Bakewell if you get spooked by descending hairpin bends! (On the other hand, the view on the way down over the Upper Dove Valley and towards Chrome Hill is wonderful)

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and yes when we first started driving that road it did make us hold our breath but as you say the view far out ways the fear and absolutely mustn’t be missed. Property Owner

    The welcome pack was fantastic and the flowers were a nice touch. Would definitely like to visit again, maybe in the winter to make use of the open fire

  • "The cottage is in an excellent location."

    Tastefully and recently modernised with some lovely touches like the starter hamper and the vases of flowers. Very clean and it was useful to have washing up liquid and cleaning products. The cottage was so comfortable it felt like home from home! A cafetiere would be useful. Definitely a place to visit again.

  • "Fantastic cottage in a good location."

    Owners have clearly been to a lot of trouble to provide well thought out and good quality facilities and everything was comfortable and very clean for our weekend here. We loved having breakfast and supper in the little secluded sun trap garden. Very generous welcome pack. Good walking from the door and the village has a pub, shop, post office and cafe. We would definitely stay here again. Only slight hitch was that the directions to the property were wrong so it took a while to find - it is on Carder Green, not Gautledge Lane and the house sign was obscured by a hanging basket.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we have now corrected the directions. Hope to see you again Property Owner
