The cottage is the back half of a barn conversion. The neighbours are welcoming and willing to point out where the key is.
I didn't know what to expect so we took extra duvets and blankets, but inside is very warm with night storage heaters that belt out heat. So much so that we slept with the windows open in December! :0
I also took kitchen equipment, but again, this was supplied in abundance, with even a pizza wheel!
The wifi was easy to connect to and we managed to stream films using it.
Blue John Cavern, Mam Tor and Speedwell Cavern are within walking distance with excellent underground trips available.
We even bumped into Jarvis Cocker who had broken down just outside of Speedwell Cavern, which was a pleasant surprise for me, (if not Jarvis!).
We traveled 5 miles to Morrisons in Buxton, only to find out on the drive home that Chapel-en-le-Frith has an Aldi about 1 mile away.
The Wanted pub is 50 meters away and does an excellent Sunday lunch of turkey, beef or my personal favourite, lamb.
I don't normally go back to the same place twice, but I may take my parents as I think they'd love it too.
