  • "A really lovely cottage with everything we needed."

    It was so good to have the outside table and chairs, great at the end of a long day to sit with a cup of tea or stronger and just relax. Everywhere was very clean, the bed was very comfy and there was plenty of storage space The cottage is in such an ideal place for both walking from Edale and visiting Manchester - we will be back for a city and country week!

    It was cosy and perfect for what we wanted. The extra details made it feel like a home from home. The location was fantastic for what we needed and we would stay there again.

  • "Had a lovely stay."

    Very helpful host. Very warm and cosy. Comfy bed, generous towels, great shower too! And lovely and clean with good equipment. Nothing overlooked. Small but pretty outside space with views over the hills behind. Everything worked well with nearly everything you'd need - we did miss being able to make fresh coffee! Would definitely stay again. For the area, we love the long walks from here, but particularly enjoyed the short ones: along the canal basin towards Whaley, or up through the nature reserve not far from the cottage.And Chinley is fab - it has a general shop, tea shops, chippy, butchers, good pub with food. Would recommend the Green lane social for food and great pies from the Post Office!! And you can get everywhere by train 5 minutes away - particularly recommend Hathersage for Pool café and David Mellor shop and café.

  • "Fabulous holiday in a beautiful area."

    Rose Cottage is exceptionally comfortable and clean, we loved it. Lots of walking and some good places to eat nearby, although some are closed on Monday and Tuesday. Chapel-en-le Frith is only 2 to 3 miles away, there is a bus stop outside the cottage and the bus goes there and on to Buxton every couple of hours. We would recommend the Old Hall for meals, a 10 minute walk away, and The Beehive in Combs, a few miles away. The fish and chip shop in Chinley is good but only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and the fruit and veg that the butcher sells looked delicious. All in all a great holiday with no complaints.

  • "Very comfortable and well presented cottage, spotless and with everything you need."

    Near to some lovely cycling such as the road across from the cottage leads down to a cycle trail which in turn leads on to the canal and you can cycle for miles there. Chinley has some little places to eat such as the Green Lane Social which was very nice, it has a tea room but we didnt see it open which was a shame, it has a butchers and chippy and there are 2 other pubs/restaurants the Papermill and Old Hall which were really nice and just a short walk from the cottage. There is bike storage which is lockable, its a bit tight but we managed to fit our two adult ebikes in there which was brilliant. Owner very helpful and supportive with a couple of queries.

    Enjoyed the patio at rear on the couple of days it was sunny in the evening. Suggestion: double glazing on the window by the road to keep the traffic noise out at night.

  • "Everything you need for a relaxed holiday."

    . Ideally situated with easy access to all major attractions and areas of interest from Manchester , Sheffield or chesterfield all within a 45 minute journey . Chatsworth , Lyme park , Quarry Bank , Hardwick hall and Bolsover Castle great places to visit. So many great walks Kinder scout , Castletown and Edale and Great Mills and Monsal trail with in 15minutes drive. Great second handbook shops at Buxton, Cromford and Holmfirth a must . For those who enjoyed Last of Summer Wine highly recommend SIDS cafe and the summer wine experience under Nora Batteys house in Holmfirrth . This is our third trip back to the Peaks and always something new to see and wonderful memories to keep.

  • "Chinley is a great area for the outdoor enthusiast, lots on the doorstep so no need to get the car out."

    The village is very well equipped with shops and eateries. The Old Hall and the chippy well worth a visit to give yourself treat and most of the locals were chatty and very friendly, which is always greatly received . The patio area is very nice when the weather is good and the cottage very warm and welcoming.

  • "Perfect for our break under surreal conditions ."

    ..watching the Covid-19 pandemic unfold in front of our eyes. But it was the week before total lock-down so we were able to get out into the Peaks and revisit old haunts and re-aquatint ourselves with the area again. It was close enough to civilisation to get supplies and grab enough food for the week as the shelves were being stripped bare in the supermarkets. Great location once we had found our way around. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped with excellent wi-fi which was a must under the crazy conditions. The log fire was the perfect accompaniment for a bottle of red If there was one bugbear it was the mattress on the bed, a tad to hard for my lady who struggled with her sleep .....but I guess we are all different so some would find it ok. We will be back to visit Rose Cottage again to finish exploring the area and check out the local pubs without fear of the dreaded C19.

    Problem with heating resolved very quickly by owner. One comment would be that access to the parking area could be made wider. Site is on a fast bend and whether backing in or out of the parking area more access room would be good. Other than that it was great.

There are 5 places to get a beer/drink on foot, although the easiest to walk to is Chinley Bar & Lounge (formally and still the Conservative Club) this is a friendly and comfortable place to have a few drinks in.

    It was a nice touch to leave mince pies and bakewell tarts out for us on arrival and it was even decorated for Christmas!

    Had a lovely log fire on the Saturday which we all enjoyed, plenty of wood and kindle supplied that was good. Cutlery was for 4 people only (no spares) so when family came for dinner on the Saturday they had to bring extra, so please add more cutlery even for 4 people, don't want to keep washing up. Other than that lovely cottage

    Owner response; Thanks for your feedback, I'm thrilled that you had a great stay and could catch up with family. Cutlery and crockery for the advertised capacity of 4 people is checked and replenished as needed, but I’m happy to consider providing extra for guest convenience if required. I pride myself on high standards of cleanliness and comfort, so I'm always happy to consider suggestions to make a stay more enjoyable-I’m so pleased that you found the log fire enjoyable.

    The added bonus of off street parking for the car. We were able to chill out on the raised patio, especially as the weather was amazing. There were some lovely walks in the area, including poping to the village for the paper in the morning. There is a Morrison’s and an Aldi in chapel en Frith and a Tesco’s in Whaley bridge. All a ten minute drive away. Although we walked along the canal to the Tesco’s on one morning. We tried the chippy and the Cafe Bombay whilst there, both of which we enjoyed. A short drive to Lyme park and Buxton and the blue John stone caves. We were visiting relatives so was also a nice base for us. Very enjoyable 2 weeks stay.

    Very comfortable to return to after a day of sightseeing. The Chinley pub does not do food and the Cafe Bombay was superb.We have been to numerous cottages in the last 24 years and Rose Cottage is up there with some of the best we have seen and was very good value for money. The owner could easily charge at least £100 more going from our past experience. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

About the location


Chapel-en-le-Frith 3 miles; New Mills 6 miles; Buxton 8 miles; Bakewell 17 miles.

Chinley is a lovely little village nestled in a wonderful rural setting, on the western edge of the Peak District National Park. Popular with walkers, who are attracted by Chinley’s close proximity to Kinder Scout, visitors are well-catered for with the village’s selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Serious walkers will wish to head east from the village, across the green foothills to the russet expanse of Kinder’s moorland plateau for a starting step onto the Pennine Way or Snake Pass. Families and those looking for gentler roaming can venture west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills with the Torrs Riverside Park, a peaceful place for recreation and relaxation. Within just a short drive are the delightful High Peak villages of Chapel-en-le-Frith, boasting a cobbled marketplace and historic old stocks, and Whaley Bridge, with its canal basin and a good range of local amenities. Just a little further is Castleton, with its famous caverns and Norman Castle, as well as the popular spa town of Buxton, with its fabulous Opera House and Victorian architecture and park. The wonderful market towns of Ashbourne and Bakewell are also a must visit! Discover Derbyshire’s fine history with a visit to Lyme Park, Chatsworth House or Haddon Hall. Chinley truly is a wonderful base for discovering the wonders of Derbyshire and the Peak District!
