  • "Amazing place."

    Couldn't ask for more. The owners are very friendly to. If we needed anything all we had to do was ask.

  • "High quality accommodation - well presented and equipped."

    Friendly owners who provided clear communication and instructions. Hot tub is a welcome treat at the end of the day. Well situated for a lot of different activities - be they in cities or the countryside. Walks literally on the doorstep. We loved it and would recommend this cottage highly!

  • "Netherfield Cottage we found to be extremely well resourced, everything there you could possibly need and very clean, spacious accommodation."

    We were surprised that the property was situated on a road with quite a bit of through traffic, it did bother us personally as we live in a quiet cul-de-sac so are not accustomed to traffic noise. I would like to stress that this is not a criticism of this lovely place as such, rather an observation that isn't made clear on the listing and of course, noise tolerance is a personal thing. Other people have mentioned the creaky floorboards in the main bedroom. I have creaks at home, I didn't think it would bother us. In this case, it is extreme, you have to turn up the TV if someone is walking about upstairs! At night, there is no popping to the bathroom without waking your partner. In the end we laughed about it, but it does need looking at. Our only other reservation was feeling embarrassed having to walk through the owner's personal space (back garden past family living area) to get to our car, there is an option to go out on to the road, we did this whenever possible. These points aside, we enjoyed our stay, the owners were really helpful and friendly, the surrounding area is beautiful with loads of lovely walking and scenery right on your doorstep and hot tub is the best we've used. Netherfield Cottage is well worth booking, you will have a lovely holiday, simply be aware of the points above when you make your choice if you are sensitive to any of these issues, we hope our honest review is helpful.

  • "The location of the cottage could have been clearer as there are two Pilsleys in Derbyshire."

    Pilsley near Bakewell is in the Peak District whilst Netherfield Cottage is in Pilsley, near Clay Cross a totally different location.

  • "Enjoyed our holiday."

    Great location for getting to the places we wanted to visit. The house was great. Only niggles: 1. Awful showers (which is exacerbated because you should shower frequently before and after using the hot tub) and 2. The annoyingly loud creaky floorboards upstairs. But overall we loved the place and thank the owners for having us.

  • "Lovely cottage, with fab open plan layout downstairs and nicely decorated bedrooms, en suite and bathroom upstairs."

    A great garden well equipped with hot tub and barbecue. Very quiet village location (not to be confused with the larger Pilsley near the Chatsworth estate), convenient base for cycling, walking and enjoying the beautiful towns of the Peak District. 40-60mins from Bakewell, Buxton, Matlock, Tissington Trail etc, so good base location. Cottage also situated right next to the Five Pits Trail which is suitable for walkers, cyclists and pushchairs and easy circular walks accessible around the surrounding villages. No pubs in close walking distance that serve food, but plenty of lovely pubs a short drive away - a car is necessary here if you want to get out and visit local areas. The owner who lives in the main farmhouse next door is lovely, and more than happy to help with anything and french bulldogs Ronnie and Reggie provided our 18mth old with lots of entertainment. If we had one downside and it is only the one, the floorboards upstairs in the cottage were incredibly creaky, making putting a toddler to bed very tricky - something to consider if travelling with a small one who is easily disturbed. All in all a lovely place to stay, and we would visit again and definitely recommend! Thanks Jane and Mark

    The house is actually in their back garden. Also I discovered there are 2 Pilsleysin Derbyshire so it might be worth clarifying which one this is

    Everything we needed was there. The biscuits and tea etc were are nice touch. Lovely and warm yet so spacious, which given the weather wasn't great, it was lovely to get back to. We booked because we liked the idea of a hot tub and went in every evening.

  • "The cottage was well equipped, spacious, clean and modern."

    We had a wonderful stay at the cottage, and really enjoyed the use of the hot tub. The only downside of the experience is that the cottage was super difficult to find in the dark, as we could not see the door number at all due to a dimly lit street. It would have been helpful if there was a sign indicating the name of the cottage, or a clearer display of the door number. Alternatively, perhaps the owner could have communicated a map or instructions upon contact to indicate how to locate the cottage. We drove in and out of three or four neighbouring driveways and had to turn around in the street a few times before we finally found the right property. However due to the cottage being tucked away behind the owner's house out of public view, I had to ring the owner to find out where exactly the cottage was!!! Very difficult to find. Now we know where the cottage is located, we would rent it again, but otherwise I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Too difficult to find!

  • "Netherfield cottage was a lovely place to stay."

    Well appointed, clean, close to hiking trails and some lovely villages. The only negative I have is that the upstairs floor boards are really noisy and loud. If you have to get up in the night the noise inevitably woke the other person or if your downstairs watching telly the noise is terribly disturbing. Some people it may not bother but for us, it it did really spoil a truly lovely property.

The former colliery village of Pilsley was once linked by rail to four other collieries. Today the former track forms the 5 Pits Trail which takes you from Grassmoor Country Park to Tibshelf Ponds. Just 6.5 miles away is the village of Ashover in the Amber Valley. The village has several good pubs, including the Crispin Inn, renowned as one of the oldest pubs in the Peak District and The Old Poets’ Corner which offers home-brewed Ashover ales. A little further on, Matlock offers a host of fine eateries and shops and you can enjoy a thrilling day at Gulliver's Kingdom, with its water gardens, nature trails, exhilarating rides and cable car trips over the magnificent Matlock Gorge. You could take a short drive to explore the lovely market town of Bakewell, famous for the Bakewell pudding, or visit the elegant Chatsworth House.
