  • "Absolutely gorgeous barn conversion, the space worked really well for us with the two lounges so the kids had their own room and two bathrooms and the teen in his own side of the house."

    The kitchen is a good size, but we bbq and ate outside most nights. The private patio and dining area is excellent as is the communal bbq, lawns and picnic area. There’s a lovely walk (or run) down the lines or through the woods, the kids loved picking blackberries. It’s a great location for days out we enjoyed lots of lovely walks, open water swimming and days out at Chatsworth and the heights of Abraham. Thank you for a lovely week - we will be back!

  • "This is a great little cottage, in an idyllic location."

    The property is really well equipped with everything you need, lovely comfy mattresses, and perfect seating area outside. Everything was spotlessly clean the owners were available but not intrusive. We would definitely look to book this again!

  • "We had a lovely stay at Orchard View."

    The house itself had everything we needed and plenty of room for our family. We enjoyed walks in the nearby fields and woods. The location was perfect for exploring all corners of the Peak District too. We had such an enjoyable time and we will definitely come back.

  • "A beautiful cottage with high quality fixtures and fittings."

    As further improvement I would recommend grab handles for the steps down into the sitting room and kitchen for those like me unsteady on their feet. Also to secure to the walls the looped cords for raising and lowering the window blinds to safeguard young children. I hope that does not sound negative because we had a very relaxing stay.

  • "We had a fantastic Christmas break."

    The cottage was homely and welcoming and tastefully decorated for Christmas. I was able to cook a 3-course meal for 6 comfortably with the resources provided by the cottage owners. The owners were very helpful and friendly, enhancing a great stay. The hot-tub, easy access to some seasonal walks and well situated for at least 3 great pubs that we also ate at made for a wonderful festive stay. Thank you; would love to stay again, in summer or for the winter holidays.

    Thank you So pleased you enjoyed your stay Hope to see you again soon. Ian and Jo Property Owner
