  • "This is the worst holiday cottage I have ever stayed in."

    Where do I start? Not off road parking, very narrow pavement parking, with lorries from the 2 nearby quarries passing our car by inches from 4am to 6pm. So noise as well. The living room floor was filthy, really filthy. Kitchen tiny with dirty utensils. NO MICROWAVE. DISHWASHER BROKEN. Stairs with very narrow steps, extremely steep. Grotty area outside back door with treacherous slippy steep steps TV and broadband terrible, slower than dial up. The evening we arrived, I was so disappointed I was in tears and we nearly went home. I mopped the floor and dusted . Some nice places to visit nearby.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Cliff Cottage, it was easy to find and easy to access the property upon arrival, being able to park the car directly out the front was a positive as we have a 2 month old baby and this made life much easier!"

    The property has bags of character and I loved the all the original features. The property contained everything we needed including hairdryer, straighteners, iron, clothes airer, plus more! we really appreciated the care that has gone into making sure we were fully accommodated for. The additional finishing touches including tea, coffee and biscuits upon arrival and mini toiletries in the bathroom were a lovely surprise! A pub called The Boat was just a stones throw away where we enjoyed a lovely meal and drink but the best part for us was how close to Cromford Canal we were, a lovely walk which we were able to do with the buggy!

  • "Nicely converted traditional terraced cottage, in a friendly attractive village with great walking opportunities on the doorstep."

    The cleverly terraced patio area climbs the cliff side above the cottage and is a real suntrap, ( we even enjoyed a barbeque on a sunny March day!) Though the vertiginous access would not suit the infirm. The Boat Inn, just 5 minutes walk away provided very friendly hospitality and good value grub.
