This was the best holiday cottage we've stayed at, there was a high standard of cleanliness and equipment and very comfy beds. The owners gave a very warm welcome and greetings throughout our stay. Seeing the working farm was a bonus for our young children. There were wonderful views, a beautiful garden and a fantastic rope swing! Will definitely be returning here.

The property owners were very welcoming and very helpful. The house was beautiful and the log burner was just what we needed with the snow outside.
Mrs Cummins

The location and house was truly beautiful. The beds were so comfy and there was everything in the house we could have hoped for. We will definitely be returning.

This is the third time that my husband and I have stayed at this charming property with my 92 year old Mum. There is always a warm welcome from the owners and the accommodation is always clean and cosy. We will certainly return there again and we highly recommend it to friends and family.

Loved everything! A wonderful cottage, truly a home from home, we couldn't have asked for anything better. It was clean, comfy, well equipped, with super comfy beds and bedding, and was quiet. The AGA was incredible to cook on, we usually eat out but it was a real pleasure cooking every night!

One of the nicest holiday homes I have stayed in. The owners were friendly and helpful. Our holiday there was just perfect.
Mrs Taylor
May 2015
We had a wonderful time at Kitty's - a very convenient situation for just about everything, but still enjoying the peace and quiet of the position on a dairy farm. The cottage was immaculate, very well furnished, with a wonderful dining kitchen (with Aga) and great bathroom facilities. The excellent central heating was a blessing as we had everything from sunshine to snow during our vacation! I would have no hesitation in recommending Kitty's Cottage to anyone and if we are ever in the UK again, we would certainly book this cottage.

The cottage is really beautiful and it is in a very quiet and peacefully area. The house is big, well furnished and nicely decorated. I liked the kitchen with the big window and the interesting Aag cooker. Very comfortable that every room has its own bathroom.
Mrs Adams
March 2015
It was in a lovely quiet location but a short drive away from lots of things to see/do. Accommodation was wonderful, more like staying in someone's own home due to the level of care and attention given to everything you might need, rather than a holiday rental.
Mrs Robinson

We have stayed at Kittys before. The cottage is perfect for a relaxing break. The owners are very welcoming and the extra touches of flowers, cake and wine etc., are extremely thoughtful. We would certainly recommend this cottage to family and friends.

This is our second time staying at Kitty's and our stay was just as good as the first! The owners are lovely and very helpful. Kitty's is very comfortable and cozy and the scenery is just beautiful! We will definitely be back!

Mrs Milne

The property was like a home from home - warm comfortable and plenty of room. There was lots of lovely walks in the area and we also visited local attractions. The owners of the property were friendly and gave lots of advice about local walks etc.

The house was really cosy, with everything we needed for a girls get together. The beds were comfy, rooms were spacious and there were plenty of bathrooms available. The lovely countryside is on your doorstep!
Mrs Collins

The cottage was great and the owner really welcoming and friendly. Located on a farm with lovely views, the cottage has recently been renovated and furnished to a high standard. There are great places to eat nearby and it is convenient for Manchester and walking in the Peak District. Marple Locks are worth a visit.
Mrs MacKay

Kitty's is a really beautiful property in a wonderful setting. It is of a very high quality indeed and the owner is very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed a wonderful few days.
Mrs Hawkins

We cannot fault this property at all. It was very suitable to our long list of needs and warm and comfortable.
Mrs Gray

The cottage was the best we have stayed in. We had everything we needed. We will definitely be going back! We thoroughly enjoy our stay.

The place was beautiful.
Ms Baird
January 2014
I particularly enjoyed the strong country feel of Kitty's! We only live 3miles away and in suburbia but at Kitty's you felt you were whisked into a country hide away. It was really nice touch to have a cake and wine left. On the whole it was easy to quickly clean everywhere!
Mrs Mallinson
October 2013
Location was fabulous, very rural with superb views. Cottage was idyllic, and very tastefully furnished throughout, especially loved the showers, roll-top bath, AGA and wood-burner. The owner was really friendly and informative on arrival, and our privacy was respected at all times.
Mrs Vaughan
July 2013
We enjoyed everything about this holiday. The owner was so welcoming, and made sure that we knew where everything was, as well as telling us about the area and good places to eat. The house was immaculate and there was a good supply of towels, kitchen accessories and cleaning equipment. I would definitely recommend this house to others.

Very nice setting in the middle of a working farm particularly for our young children, they had a time of their life. Very peaceful and relaxing holiday.
Mrs Bowles

The cottage was lovely.
Ms Hannon
April 2013
Very warm welcome from the owners, who had lit a fire for us, left freshly baked scones with fresh cream and jam, and fresh flowers. Couldn't fault the place.
November 2016
The title of this review is self-explanatory. We can't speak too highly of this property or its owners.
Mrs Jones
February 2013
The cottage was gorgeous, tastefully decorated and furnished. Loved the beds.
Mrs Lees
March 2013
The property had a feeling of 'home' and we all wanted to live at Kitty's. The second lounge was brilliant for the children to escape to leaving the lounge/kitchen a quieter and spacious place! The aga was fantastic - I want one! The views over to Kinder Scout are fab. The fresh milk from the farm and the general hospitality and friendliness from the owners who also very much respected your privacy despite living next door to the cottage. We really couldn't fault the whole experience.
April 2013
Marple cottage is a home from home. Every room is tastefully decorated and furnished. When we had snow during our stay we were happy to light the wood burner and snuggle down for the day. The aga was a delight. It was quiet at night, private and close to both city and country.
October 2013
Great Cottage, warm, cosy, clean and extremely clean and well looked after. The owners were very friendly and had a delicious carrot cake and wine waiting for us on arrival. Situated on a dairy farm with great country air and picturesque views. Close access to other scenic sites and easy distance to Stockport and Manchester via car or train from Marple. Lots of great eateries close by. Had an unforgettable stay. Maurie and Paula
