  • "We had a really lovely long weekend at Queen Anne’s Close."

    The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped, especially the kitchen - masses of space and multiple fridges and storage, even 2 dishwashers, great for a large group. We enjoyed the garden and there are some good walks straight from the doorstep. The only negative is about lighting - not enough bedside lights (every bedside needs a light in my opinion!) and a couple of lightbulbs not working.

  • "Very spacious and accommodated our party of 15 comfortably."

    Good location for exploring local attractions and for sitting quietly in the garden. The arrangement of the downstairs rooms was very helpful as the kitchen, dining room and sitting room were connected and open to each other which meant that nobody was cut off from the party whilst cooking etc

  • "The house is lovely and the location was perfect, the garden and views are incredibly picturesque."

    There was lots of room and plenty of bathrooms for the 16 beds. The beds are really comfortable too. Overall we had a lovely weekend and would definitely recommend.

  • "Wow what a week we had here with family and friends to celebrate a special birthday!"

    Fabulous house that feels grand yet homely with quality appliances, tastefully decorated and thoughtfully put together. Beautiful views so able to relax and enjoy the property as well as get out and about, a real getaway from it all. Highly recommend this house and a fantastic Greek restaurant we found in Chapel-en-le-Frith called Kouros Cafe, a gem!

  • "Wow, wow, WOW!"

    This place was everything and more! We came as a party of 12 adults (6 couples) for a Christmas weekend. My guests were actually tearful at how beautiful and christmasy the house was. There was ample room for all of us and we absolutely loved the open plan of the downstairs as it gave us the space without being disconnected whilst cooking! We decided to do the full blown christmas meal in the very ample kitchen, there was more than enough equipment to cater for such a big banquet ( maybe one or two more oven trays needed) the table was more than spacious enough to get us all around and be able to decorate it up for a christmas setting. All the beds were very comfortable and bedding was good quality too. We didn’t get the opportunity to use the spectacular garden but the view of it was picturesque. I would be back here in a flash, would love to experience it in the summer time too, BBQ, wine and games in the garden.

  • "A lovely house with a very well equipped kitchen and well decorated living space with ample space for friends and family for a special birthday celebration."

    The log burner was glorious and downstairs was really well thought out. The house was in a great location too. Regarding the facilities, some of the bedrooms need to brought up to the higher decoration spec of the other rooms and I would suggest the twin is made into a double. I would probably put the four poster bed in the first large bedroom as it has a lovely vista over the garden as well as the en-suite in it making it feel a little more luxurious. Had a number of issues with light bulbs - some lamps were missing bulbs, and a number of bulbs were flashing and flickering as possibly not dimmable so this could be checked. It would have been nice if the hot tub was working, or if not I would suggest taking it away otherwise it feels like a futile fixture which guests can’t partake in. Outdoors could be made more of - it would be good to have an outdoor fire pit and some seating to really use the outside space better which I was expecting. Overall, would highly recommend to others and return again as the space and layout outshines some of the little tweaks required.

    Thank you for your feedback provided for Queen Ann's Close. We really appreciate the kind words and we will consider the suggestions regarding the facilities. I will ensure the house keeping team check all bulbs and replace where necessary. The hot tub is no longer available for guests unfortunately and has been removed from the listing. Property Owner

  • "The house absolutely catered for 16 people, it was sufficiently large and very comfortably slept that many people."

    It was immaculately clean, decorated very tastefully, and the kitchen equipment very well catered for 16 people. There were also enough bathrooms to very adequately cope with numbers. Water was hot, and it was a nice touch to provide shower gel and shampoo in the various bathrooms. Loved the garden, the views and of course the hot tub. It's situation is also ideal, close enough into Chapel en le Frith to walk into town for supplies etc but secluded and quiet. Neighbours were also very friendly and helpful. Really enjoyable weekend, thank you.

  • "The house was fine and a comfortable space for 16 people."

    However it was not clean. Nappy left in toilet bin, kitchen bin dirty with food left in, wet bath mats in washing machine. Not enough towels, mattresses protectors cheap and nasty with not enough pillows. Expecting a better level for the cost of house.

    Thank you for your recent feedback. The owner would like to apologise. There was a temporary cleaning contract for that week and unfortunately the cleaners struggled to finish the house in 5 hours and they did not cover themselves in glory. The house has reverted to the normal changeover company regime and further guests should not experience anything like this going forward. Property Owner

    The house is super well equipped and the hot tub was an extra bonus with the kids. Communication with owners/ managers was fast and clear. The only opportunity for improvement we could see was in the garden as it lacked a proper maintenance and comfortable seating to enjoy it to its fullest. But views and space were amazing anyway. Thanks!

Hot Tub outside was a welcome treat on a freezing wet weekend. I was able to have some deliveries made to the property on the day that I arrived also which was great.

    It is so much more spacious than in the photos online. For a large gathering, this property was perfect - we had 15 adults and never felt like we were on top of each other. The kitchen was fantastically equipped - which was perfect as we did a lot of cooking ourselves. The property could do with a few more place mats (property sleeps 16 and only 12 mats), hairdryers!, the porch leaked due to the heavy rain (notified the owner, but just so you are aware).

  • "When we arrived there were dirty cups left around living and kitchen area."

    Also the hot tub stopped working after the first day! Contacted the owner who gave us instructions which did not rectify the problem. We wer told that they could not get anyone to come and help us. We booked the cottage because of the hot tub. We were all really dissapointed.

    The owner is disappointed that the guests did not enjoy their stay. On the first point a change management company thoroughly cleans the property and the house is in an immaculate state when new guests enter the property. The owner cannot explain why there was dirty cutlery and crockery on arrival. In regard to the hot tub, this was working perfectly when the guests arrived (the hot tub is emptied and inspected on each change over). The hot tub turns it self off when the water levels are low. This is usually caused by too many people getting into the hot tub at any one time and there is a warning notice on the hot tub to this end. The owner and the change over company took all the steps they could to rectify the situation but unfortunately a solution could not be found at such short notice. The hot tub is now in perfect working order and future guests should not experience any difficulties if the instructions on the hot tub are followed. Property Owner

    Great kitchen and dining areas. We had a couple of problems with the fire alarm beeping continuously through the night and actually sounding a false alert on the last day. A couple of radiators were not working which left 2 bedrooms cold. Toaster needs replacing as half of the 6 slots don't work correctly. Jacuzzi was nice but needs auto fill after 5 people use it. The amount of water displaced means the water level drops too low and heater stops. We had to look for a hosepipe and tap to top it up.

  • "The property requires: A tumble drier for the number of guests and towels used with the hot tub."

    A hairdryer. I have never rented a property without one. Laundry basket A clothes airer Potato masher Kitchen scissors A smaller saucepan would be useful when feeding children small meals plus a few plasic plates/cups/glasses that can be safely taken into the garden. No visitors book or guides to local places of interest Drinking tumblers in bathrooms or smaller glasses suitable for use by children. We all loved the hot tub but 5 of our party developed skin rashes/ and bites. We cannot say the rash was caused by the hot tub but it was a bit of a coincidence. Despite the above it's a lovely property and we all enjoyed our holiday. With a few additions this could an excellent holiday venue.

The property

Chapel-en-le-Frith 1.5 miles.

Queen Ann's Close is a fabulous, roomy stone cottage enjoying a soothing countryside location situation in the Wash, a small village between the picturesque village of Chinley and the market town of Chapel-en-le-Frith in the Peak District.

This Victorian era building served it's country well as a parachute factory in World War II.

It was also previously owned by the General Manager of the Daily Mail, and many famous people stayed there to protect that all important scoop.

Encompassed by the Peak District National Park and a wealth of fascinating towns, this luxury accommodation is a perfect base for a memorable break with family and friends.

Situated down a quiet country lane, enter the property into its immaculate and contemporary kitchen, a spacious layout with stylish clay tone units and a charming breakfast table to enjoy your morning coffee.

The refreshing, open layout takes you into the rustic, very social dining room featuring a double-faced woodburning stove in its stunning redbrick fireplace.

The traditional wooden floorboards lead to the heart-warming sitting room; vintage leather sofas and plenty of beanbags make this a wonderful spot to kick back with the TV on and living flame fire ablaze.

The first floor presents five beautifully furnished bedrooms including two benefiting from luscious en-suites and an elegant four poster bedroom.

There is also a simply remarkable family bathroom, finished with quirky tiles, a luxurious claw foot slipper bath and a double walk-in shower, a real touch of class.

The interior concludes wonderfully with a thoughtful children's room, complete with six single beds, cosy seating and a wall-mounted TV.

Summertime is also well-catered for here at Queen Ann's Close as the cottage offers extensive, well-maintained gardens to sit back in and embrace this wonderful rural setting.Chapel-en-le-Frith is a fantastic Peak District base offering a cobbled market place with plenty of amenities to make the most of.The delightful village Chinley is walking distance and the trendy pubs and restaurants at Hayfield a mere 5-minute drive in the car.

The house is 5 miles away from the stunning spa town of Buxton and on the border of the glorious Peak District National Park, both offering a range of activities and facilities to take advantage of.

Queen Ann's Close is a fabulously unique property in an excellent Peak District location.
