    We would highly recommend Woodland Lodge. Everything you need is on the doorstep. The walled garden was super safe for our dogs, hot tub for after long walks to relax into. The owners of the property were always on hand if needed and really lovely. Perfect getaway! Thank you so much.

    It really is homely , warm and peaceful . The owners have made it really comfortable and cozy and the garden and surrounding walks ( fields and forest ) are a delight. Everything in the property was perfect and the log burner and hot tub made it that bit more special . Although secluded and peaceful the proximity to villages , roads and attractions in the Dales is great . A definite must to visit - Thankyou Ian and Jo

    Everything was better than we ever imagined. Great layout and with the absolute benefit of the enclosed garden keeping Phoebe (the dog). The hot tub was also fabulous and a great way to unwind in the day.

  • "Beautiful cottage, much more spacious than the pictures suggest."

    Lovely location and scenery. Sitting in the spa, watching the sun go down over the ruins on the horizon will live long in our memories! Only downside would be noise, which came from 2 main sources. Firstly, the high-speed train line about 50 yards away, and second from the works on the next-door site ( and accompanying site traffic going up and down the lane ). It didn't spoil our trip though!

    We have a 14 month old and two dogs and I cant recommend this cottage enough. Walks on your doorstep and easy reach of all amenities including local pubs within walking distance for food and drinks. We will definitely stay again! Extra comfy bed too and such beautiful original features and setting. Nothing was too much trouble and extremely friendly and helpful host. Beautiful private secure garden with hot tub, pergola and wooden swing. Truly beautiful and thank you for sharing such a beautiful property.

    Location perfect. Hot tub a bonus. Great secure garden, wonderful for the dogs, also great that dogs were allowed. Lovely walks on the doorstep, not far to the village if you wanted the pub. Really lovely little break for me. Would've been good to have a freezer......only to make ice cubes, but I'm just being picky because truly couldn't fault it. Xx

    You have created something special and it’s been an absolute pleasure staying at Woodland Lodge. Couldn’t have asked for a more welcoming and relaxing place and even in the cold weather the hot tub makes it that little bit more amazing. It was our second visit and we hope to be back next year.

  • "When we arrived we had to clean the fridge out because there had been a spillage of milk over the bottom of the fridge that had dried and needed cleaning before we could place any of our items in the fridge."

    The coffee was stale, the cottage needed a good dusting, there was a dirty rug at the back of the living room which we had no idea why, the main bathroom needs more ventilation and got so musty from condensation mould is growing in there, you couldn’t open any windows around that area so when you went to sleep at night you felt you were breathing in damp, the bed is two single beds pushed together! The small toilet leaked, barely anything matched in the kitchen and all the mugs were dirty. There seems to be a problem with damp because there’s moss growing on the outside of the building and when it was slightly wet on the brick driveway you really had to watch where you walked or you slipped over. No robes provided for the hot tub, we had to go and buy some during our stay. Good location and a great hot tub. Only met owner and he was pleasant and helpful. Wouldn’t go back due to the damp issues mentioned.

    The enclosed garden was an excellent feature which meant that the dog could just wander in and out as he pleased. The location to the rest of the Peak District was good and not far from the main shops in Alfreton for supplies. Would definitely look to book this cottage again in the future

    Lovely views across the valley from the hot tub. Very quiet, despite being near a railway line. We needed a quiet, restful week and we got it. The accommodation is beautifully decorated with lots of little niches dotted around. It had everything needed for a week away, (though could possibly do with an outside tap or sink to clean dirty boots and dogs). I would highly recommend this property

    Tons of character. Quality of all services (heating / hot water / shower/ TV/ wifi / external lighting / kitchen etc) was first class. Bed a bit soft and bouncy for our taste but that is very much an individual preference. Hot tub fabulous.... really professional installation with lovely frame / roof surround with built in "fairy lights". A real treat. Good walks through the woods from the cottage itself. Also up to the runed manor house (Maps / walk guides would have been a welcome addition). Very high quality food served at The Dog at Prentice (5 minute drive). Wonderful, relaxing stay
