  • "A beautiful property in a lovely location."

    We couldn't fault it at all, and would definitely stay there again. The books, CDs and DVDs certainly gave it that personal touch, and we enjoyed listening to a few of the CDs in the evenings. We were very lucky with the weather so were able to enjoy the seating area outside, a perfect spot to watch the sunset.

  • "We found the cottage clean, well presented and compact (as described) - and in a convenient location just outside the park but within easy access of the Peak District and its varied attractions."

    It was fully and suitably equipped. The dedicated external dining/seating area was nice - and the additional, wide selections of DVDs and books were appreciated. Less positively (areas for potential improvement): 1. Kitchen and seating area was more cramped than anticipated 2. The main sofa was very uncomfortable - creating back pain if used for any extended period 3. General damp - towels, bedding and even the toilet rolls became increasingly damp and could not be easily dried Overall, we enjoyed our stay - although the cottage was not as good 'value' as others we have stayed in - overly expensive for the size, location and quality level.

  • "Great location, walks from door, and lots in close proximity."

    The terrace was great for eating outside. As described it is not huge but is comfortable.

  • "This is a very clean, well equipped compact base from which to explore the Peak District."

    Lovely rural location with walks direct from the property available. other than that excellent little find for us! Only criticism is the living room furniture not very comfortable for a relaxing evening after walking all day.

  • "An excellent stay in Chapel-En-Le-Frith!"

    Had a three-night stay at The Garden Room @ Brookcliff House in The Wash, Chapel-En-Le-Frith. A very cosy, welcoming holiday cottage. A great location to explore the Peak District - we had great walks on the Monsal Trail (short car journey), out to the Pennine Bridleway (from the door) and around Mam Tor on our day of departure. The accommodation is top class with every commodity we required (even sandwich boxes for lunch out on all those walks!). Excellent guest information including suggested pubs and restaurants and maps of the local walks. Extensive collection of DVDs, CDs and books. Very well-equipped kitchen area. Very comfortable bedroom and clean shower room with plenty of towels and a bath robe! We have been so impressed with The Garden Room @ Brookcliff House, that we intend to book again this year (as there is SO much to explore in the area around Chapel En Le Frith). Extremely highly recommended.

  • "A cosy annexe."

    It is just right for a couple and was lovely and warm, we had no problems with heating. The Garden Room is in the little village of Wash and you can see across the valley to cottages and countryside. The place was clean and well equipped. The convection oven cooked really well, including pizza. There was plenty of space for parking.

  • "We had a very nice time and some beautiful walks, On arrival about 4pm it was very disappointing to arrive in October to a cold house."

    We called the owner who said that the heating did not come on until 5pm but there was a Dimplex heater in the living room ( not enough heat to suffice on a chilly October afternoon. )When the heating came on it was very adequate however it went off around 9pm for the night! In the morning on waking the heating was on but again around 9am it appeared to go off again until 5pm! We are in our 70’s and so did not want to be out walking all day hence the afternoons were chilly to say the least. We did feel that for the three days we were there that the owners could have supplied us with warmth all day. We would stay there again but when it is warmer ! The house was lovely but chilly at times.

  • "This is a fabulous spot for exploring the northern Peak District, and is only a short drive from Castleton, Buxton etc The Garden Room is tucked away but the instructions to find it were spot on."

    Have tried to book again but the weekend we want is already taken. Loved the place.

  • "We found the location in Wash delightful for walking--no need to drive most days."

    We very much appreciated the host's accommodating our request to remove the sofa for our visit--this enabled us to position the table and chairs next to the kitchen area. Concerned about Covid 19, we brought our own linens. With a bit of effort we mastered the DVD and really enjoyed watching old films most evenings. The WiFi was very good; the eating area outside very pleasant when the sun shone. Most importantly, the bed was comfortable. We would happily visit again. Two caveats: We ran out of toilet paper on our 4th day; on request the host kindly provided a second roll but noted she normally expected guests to provide their own if the initial roll ran out. The cottage description says there is a "fridge/freezer". In reality, there is an under counter fridge with a very small freezing compartment. We brought some frozen food, but were content to let it thaw slowly in the fridge before use. Fortunately did not bring ice cream!

A short drive away are an abundance of attractions including the Blue John Cavern and the castle at Castleton and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. Chinley is a lovely little village nestled in a wonderful rural setting, on the western edge of the Peak District National Park.
