“The cottage was ideally situated and beautifully furnished.”
There is a perfect blend of contemporary and original features which made this, our first stay in a cottage, very enjoyable. The master bedroom was unbelievable and has to be seen to be believed.

Cosy clean and comfortable. One sofa needs replacing to make it perfect.- Mrs Tewson, November 2018
We stayed for 6 nights with our two Children aged 11 and 14. The Cottage has been nicely renovated and has gas CH and a woodburning stove. The kitchen was reasonably well equiped and had been fitted with a new electric oven. There were plenty of powst and pans and other cooking utensils; we ate in a lot. In relation to previous comments re cleanliness, yes we had to clean the smudges off the glasses and cups before use but it didn't bother me. The Cottage was generally clean throughout despite this. There were no signs of spiders as previously mentioned. It is a lovely Cottage and for the price, worth the money.- Robert F, October 2018
“Originally booked with out reading the review, then noticed there were some negative feedback re cleanliness which concerned me as I am very picky.”
However, I must say that the cottage was absolutely spotless and so very well equipped, the beds were so comfy and the rooms nicely decorated - very cottage Esk! It’s was one of the nicest cottage rentals that my family and I have stayed in... and there has been many. The area is very central and ideal for walking and days out. Pub in the village is ok to walk too, but the Devonshire Arms at Cracoe is fab! Be definitely returning.- Mr Wilson, October 2018
“We were a family of four (14 and 11 year old girls) and we all enjoyed our stay.”
It's a small cosey Cottage and very comfortable. It's been very nicely renovated. It was clean and tidy when we arrived and key easily obtained. Perhaps clear instructing on where the CH control was located along with instructs on how to switch it on outwith the normal times would help. We have a similar CH control so no problem for us. Contact from the owner to ensure all was well would have been nice. Lovely area to visit and not too far to York, Harrogate etc..- Mr Farrands, October 2018
“This was a lovely cosy cottage with the added bonus of a log burner.”
The owner left a note apologising because the road outside the cottage was being dug up as we arrived and she had little warning of this. This however, did not spoil our holiday as there was ample parking in the village. The road works was also completely very promptly so this was not a problem. The owner also apologised that there were no logs in the log store as the previous occupant has used all the logs but the owner did promise to bring some more logs and they did so promptly. Both myself and Maggie, my travelling companion, commented on how comfortable the beds were and in fact Maggie looked at the beds to find out what make they were as she said it was one of the most comfortable beds she had slept in. The furniture, bedding, blinds etc was all very good quality. Overall this was a very comfortable, cosy cottage and I would definitely book it again.- Mrs Rowley, September 2018
“Comfortable cottage but kitchen was a disgrace dirty, appliances were dirty, lack of crockery, pots and pans disgusting, cooker looked like it had never been cleaned, no welcome pack and lack of information.”
. Unable to get heating working poor instructions. No recycling bins or instructions. Lack of channels available on TV (BBC1, BBC2 etc). Towels were old and in poor condition but clean and not left out for our arrival. No logs supplied as promised.- Mr Townsend, August 2018
“The cottage is in a lovely village, with easy access to the surrounding countryside.”
The cottage was very pretty and in general very comfortable, it did have a few issues, it was surface clean, however there were dozens of spiders and webs all over the place, some even in the pots and pans. The devil is always in the detail, and although the owners had worked hard to give it a contemporary look and feel, things like a cheap plastic too small toilet seat let it down, it would have also of benefited from hooks on doors for towels to dry. It was nice to arrive to a loaf of bread and cakes, but these were all past the 'use by date' so we couldn't really enjoy them. As said the devil is in the detail, and the property details were not totally accurate, there was no bath, the shower however was excellent, they claimed a blue ray player when it was a DVD, which meant you couldn't play blue ray, and although claiming dog friendly there was no garden, although the photo indicates one. (It actually belonged to two other properties). All said these things didn't stop us having a lovely holiday. It was a shame that the small things let the cottage down- Mr Preston, July 2018
“My husband and I were more than disappointed with level of cleanliness at the property with dust and cobwebs in most rooms, pots pans and kitchen cupboards need a thorough cleaning out as does the oven.”
Had to Hoover round to get rid of all the spiders when we first got there and had to wash pans and utensils before we were able to use them. Cottage was misrepresented as it only had a shower and not a bath as per the description and pictures on your booking site. We belive Woodworm in beam above bed made it hard to sleep due to the constant crunching sound. Also dissapointed that despite paying for 2 bedroom cottage only one of the rooms was made up!! Really really disapointed !- Mr North, July 2018
“Cottage is in a quiet location but really well placed for pub and amenities.”
Although the cottage accepts pets the lack of a garden makes it a little less dog friendly.- Mr Lonsdale, July 2018
“No bath as stated in the details and shown in photo.”
Water drained away in bathroom sink when plug was down wasting water as had to keep replacing it. Toilet seat was too small, did not cover the pan, not very pleasant. Only 2 handtowels supplied. Some crockery was dirty i.e. mugs with stains around. Quite a few cobwebs in corners of rooms. Very strange muffled noise continuous during the night in main bedroom, ? bats or something. Otherwise comfy beds and great location.- Mrs Mansfield, June 2018
“The cottage was described as luxury on your website - and yes, there were many elements which were lovely.”
The lounge, the bedrooms were nice, the beds comfy. The bathroom was extremely cramped, the toilet seat was loose. The kitchen was poorly equipped - no dishwasher, few pots and pans to cook with, the oven was dirty and old - as was the hob. Many of the plates and crockery were dirty and we had to wash them before we used them. And after reading all the lovely comments on your website, we were expecting a welcome basket with homemade bread - even a small pint of milk and some tea bags would have been welcome after such a long journey. We were left a bottle of wine, and some chocolates - which were nice, but not as useful as homemade bread & milk! The light bulb needed changing in the kids bedroom, so we had to root around to find a spare light bulb. We were not left any towels, so we had to root around the cupboards to find some. We helped ourselves to some in the airing cupboard. And although lovely to have a woodburner - we couldn't find any firelighters or kindling (or matches - although eventually after buying some, we did discover some). The instructions for the house & the local area were minimal to say the least. So although the cottage over all was very pictureseque, we couldn't help feeling very disappointed. We've stayed in better...- Saunders, March 2018
“Lovely homely cottage, very handy base for walking and local villages and pubs.”
Delicious loaf of bread and cakes on arrival was a nice touch.- Mr Slack, February 2018
A 3 night stay and enjoyed it all. We were practically snowed in one day which just added to the charm. Great bed. Cosy cottage with everything you need. Store within walking distance and great pub across the road. Wood stove. Great atmosphere with lovely welcome pack on arrival. Enjoyed it all and would certainly recommend.- aldavril, December 2017
“We will most definitely return to the Peak District, a beautiful part of our country.”- Mrs Nield, May 2017
“Lack of any garden or outside space was disappointing when it was advertised as pet friendly.”
Perhaps this should have been made clearer in the catalogue- Mr Lewis, May 2017
Superb, cozy and warm cottage with fabulously comfortable beds, log burner, quality fixtures and fittings. Generous extras were left for us on arrival. Can't recommend highly enough!- GingerLola, November 2016
Charming cottage with lovely decoration and very comfortable beds. The cottage was spotlessly clean with lots of nice extras (bottle of wine & croissants) and plenty of hot water. It would benefit from a couple of large pans (you could not for example cook pasta for four) and a casserole dish or two but overall great & I would definitely return.- Roseberry65, October 2016
