  • "Lovely cosy cottage in a quiet cul-de-sac, which was close to all the amenities, I would definitely recommend staying at this accommodation."

  • "A well positioned bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac, with comfortable furniture and a peaceful garden."

    Lacking in a few facilities but overall very good value for money.

  • "The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well appointed with good size bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen."

    On arrival the owners left us a bottle of wine, which was a nice touch. Being located at the end of a cul-de-sac, it was nice and quiet too. The property was within easy reach of the M1 and in a great location for visiting local attractions such as the Crich Tramway museum, Chatsworth House, Bakewell and the Peak District. The Peacock restaurant, which is only a few hundred yards away, was really excellent and there were many other good pubs and restaurants in the wider area. All in all it added up to a very pleasant stay and was fantastic value for money.

  • "We as a family thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience at Linbery."

    We could not have picked a better location to enjoy the surrounding area. The house itself was fantastic with our 13 year old enjoying his own wee bit space in the loft. I would strongly recommend Linbery to anyone. We only managed to get as far as Bakewell as there was so much to do. The local pub "The Butchers Arms was excellent. The meals were hearty and very reasonable. The Pesto across from the house was nice but a little pricey. We hope to return soon to further explore the area as it appealed to us all.

    Excellent three "C"s comfort, cleanliness and convenience. Comfortable lounge suite for relaxing. Good quality bed mattresses for sleeping. Instant hot water shower with a non slip bath mat. Powerful hair dryer. Very well equipped kitchen with even plasters for sore walking heels and cling film for picnic sandwiches.

With so many things to do and lovely national park on the doorstep it was great.
