Liked the cosy, warm feel of the cottage. The fully equipped kitchen that made it easy to prepare family dinners. A delightful view greeted me as I opened the curtains each morning and I liked the proximity of some of the UK's most enchanting natural features.

The Cottage was lovely and tranquil and in a great position. The view from the cottage garden was amazing. We were made to feel welcome and it really was a home from home. To cap it all the weather was fantastic.

An excellent cottage which provided a great base for exploring the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales. This was a cosy cottage which was perfect for the two of us and our small dog.

A great homely cottage which was really dog friendly. Everything we needed was available. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The best thing we liked was the garden leading to the field beyond for dog walking. There were fantastic views over rolling hills at the rear. Had a wonderful week and would return in a heartbeat.

A comfortable cottage ideally situated for walking and sightseeing. Views from the lounge are excellent. The owners are very friendly and helpful. All in all the cottage was not a disappointment, certainly recommend it to friends and family.

The Cottage was very comfortable, far enough off the road for road noise not to be a problem. It had a very pleasant position with good views over some lovely countryside. The Peak District is a very beautiful place with a lot of diverse outdoor activities available within a close proximity of the cottage.

The cottage was warm, cosy and ideally situated to act as a base for us to go on day trips from. The view over the rolling hills was breathtaking. Everything you could want for a self catering holiday was provided including a comprehensive amount of information about local places to visit. We were very impressed and helped us to provide a lovely setting for a 50th birthday surprise.

We particularly liked the scenery and the cottage's location to some stunning sights of outstanding natural beauty. The cottage is an ideal base for visiting the whole of the peaks. We would highly recommend this cottage to others.

We loved the area of Derbyshire that we stayed in, the cottage was very clean and comfortable and was very dog friendly with enclosed gardens and lovely walks from the back gate.

The Cottage was immaculate and well stocked. Beautiful outlook onto farmland.
Mrs Cooper

The cottage had a superb outlook and access to walks from the doorstep. The places we explored with our dog were very 'dog-friendly' - a trip down Blue John Caves - lots of 'dog friendly' eating places - a hike up Mam Tor and a 6 mile walk around Ladybower Reservoir certainly gave our Labrador dog plenty of excuses to sleep in! Cottage was great - holiday was great!

This was an amazing cottage with fabulous hosts. There was the most beautiful scenery outside the back door and we would definitely go again.

Perfect environment to get home to and relax from days out. Brilliantly equipped kitchen, made it easy to cook what we liked. Lovely and clean. Amazing beds - so comfortable.

The Cottage was exactly what we wanted and we loved the fact that the back garden over looked beautiful farmland and we were able to walk our little dog there first thing in the morning. Everything we wanted to visit was a short ride away and all the local eateries we visited were friendly and the beer and food was excellent.

This property is excellent overall. The property is immaculately clean, and the surrounding country side is unspoiled and beautiful.
Miss Richmond

Everything about The Cottage was perfect. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and fully equipped. The location was perfect for walking and cycling (both on and off road). Stunning walks within a 10 mile radius. The views from the cottage were outstanding. Would recommend to anyone!

I had expected so much more from this cottage. When we arrived the cottage had been empty for a few days and felt very cold. I think it would have been nice if the heating had been on for a while to heat it through. It wasn't while the next day that it warmed through. The cottage does not have a freezer, so if like us, take food for the week ( no shops in village) you have a problem. We were lucky that some other rooms were empty and the owner let us use the freezer boxes at the top of the other fridges. The Cottage is very dog friendly. It has fabulous views from the back and a very large field that the dogs can run about. I had no complaints about that at all. The furniture in the lounge is past it and needs an immediate replacement. When sat on by the end of the evening you are 6 inches off the floor and have great difficulty getting back out of it. The kitchen has all you need and pots and cutlery are fine. Oven clean etc so it was very useable. Upstairs the bedrooms are adequate. Very clean and quite comfy. Not big, but you only sleep in them. The bathroom has a shower which again needs an immediate replacement. I have never known a shower to be still in any bathroom that you are expected to shower in. I would like the owner to have a shower there and say that they find it acceptable for guests. The cottage is very dark inside and the lighting very dim. The furniture is not helping the overall look of the property. The darkness hides a small lip between the kitchen and living area floor, unfortunately my husband stubbed his toes on it and broke one of his toes. Overall it is not the best property I have stayed in and wouldn't go back. I also think that there are much better area's. There is not even a shop. Nothing really of any interest here and having driven around saw far better places to stay where you don't have to drive to to start your walk. I have been very honest with this review and feel I can't recommend it

My old friend and I stayed here for a week to have a relaxing holiday and to celebrate her birthday. The cottage itself is stone built, part of an old converted farmhouse, in the tiny village of Peak Forest in the Peak National Park. Inside, it is very simple and unspoilt, with stone flagged and wooden floors, a lovely wooden table and dresser, and all kitchen needs supplied, including tea towels, bin bags, cutlery, china, and pots and pans. There was a toaster, a microwave (we couldn't use it, being old school and not very tech-savvy!) , a very modern electric cooker and hob, and a fridge. The living room was compact but quite adequate for 2 people, with a large sofa and chair, and a TV. In the corner was a delightful curly cast iron staircase. Upstairs, there was a double room with a double bed, lovely large wooden wardrobe and dressing table, and a twin room with 2 single beds. The only downfall was the single bed I slept in was very creaky. The bathroom had toilet, shower and hand basin, and towels were supplied by the owner. The shower unit was not the best, we couldn't adjust the heating level and the shower head could do with replacing . . but it was adequate. Everything was spotlessly clean. The living room had french doors which led out the back onto a simple garden with table and chairs, and a view over the hills which was breathtaking. We spent many a morning looking out at the sheep which come right up to the stone wall of the garden. Incredibly peaceful at the back. There is a pub down the road in the village, and a supermarket in nearby Chapel-en-le-Frith. There are many walks and wonderful things to see within a short drive from the cottage, and the owner has supplied many leaflets and booklets to give you an idea of what to see. The cottage is dog friendly too, and although we stayed in the back part of the building, there are 2 other rental accommodations within the house. The cottage is centrally heated and warm. We had a lovely week, and I would recommend it to my friends. Perhaps one small downside, the road on which the cottage sits can be quite busy in the morning, and because of it's grade 2 listing, double glazing cannot be installed. Just a small thing really! Altogether a lovely place

This cottage, part of a converted farm complex, is well situated for a holiday in the Peak District. The gardens are enclosed and even our lively Patterdale terrier could find no way out. The view from the cottage is superb with rolling hills and sheep meadows. The cottage is well appointed although the lounge furniture is getting rather worn. We found the spiral staircase easy to use and the bedrooms were very nice. The owners who lived in the complex were very helpful and pleasant.
