What a great cottage, a superb base for all attractions, couldn't fit it all in! Can't wait to come back.

The Stones

Superb! We will back next time to fill all the cottages, so we will need a lorry for the wine supplies.

John & Emma

Super cottage, lovely countryside. Chatsworth House, Pooles Cavern and Crich Tramway Museum very good. Bakewell our favourite town, marvellous local pubs.

The Uttons

Excellent weekend. We managed three 8 mile walks, pony trekking, mountain biking and some great meals out. Thank you.

The Bosworth Family

Accommodation accommodating, company stimulating, weather fluctuating, children irritating. Great days out for the kids.
