This is a really gorgeous quirky cottage with three good sized bedrooms each with their own staircase! It is in the most fabulous location, ideal for visiting Chatsworth, Dove Dale, Matlock etc. The house is so peaceful and quiet with superb views from the windows and a lovely outdoor seating area.
We had very good directions (as it could be hard to find just with a satnav) and a visit from the lovely caretaker Mrs Patterson to check all was well.
The kitchen was very well equipped (apart from decent frying pans!) with plenty of crockery, glassware and utensils, a good range cooker and dishwasher.
The downsides are that house smells of damp dog constantly, which could probably be addressed by replacing the carpets with floor tiles and putting in leather, rather than fabric, sofas. It was not spotlessly clean - lots of aged cobwebs and dust, although the kitchen and bathrooms were sufficiently clean. The house could really benefit from a really good deep clean (which is surprising so early in the holiday season). Also, the beds were not terribly comfortable and had very tired bedding and bedlinen that could definitely benefit from being replaced.
Overall, I was delighted with the choice we made though, we had a really wonderful stay and I would recommend this cottage to others.
