Orchard Cottage is in a peaceful valley away from any traffic noise. It is decorated and furnished to a high standard and is spotlessly clean. A great deal of thought has gone into every utensil and facility that the guests could ever need. This cottage and their guests' enjoyment is a passion for the friendly owners. We are so pleased we found it. We had a wonderful week and will definitely return.

It was a pleasure staying in this top grade cottage in such a beautiful spot; at the end of a quiet track in the middle of lovely countryside, with fine views and lovely surroundings.

We had an amazing relaxing family holiday in this lovely homely cottage. The owners have considered everything needed. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. The Cottage was clean and decorated beautifully. Coming from a major city, we were pleasantly surprised how peaceful and relaxing this holiday was. It is in a great location, near Alton Towers and Gullivers theme park. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Orchard Cottage is a beautiful cottage with a helpful, friendly owner. This cottage was by far the best we've ever stayed in, the owner have thought of everything. We loved our stay here.
Mrs Kemp

The owners were lovely and very welcoming. The house was in a fabulous condition with the gardens particularly well cared for. The kitchen had everything you could wish for and more. The tremendous hot tub was a great bonus in the spectacular garden with the most amazing flower baskets and tubs. Although the owners stay next door, we only saw them on our arrival and departure.

The most comfortable cottage we have stayed in. Had lovely leather sofas for the evening, a log burner for cooler nights, a great range of kitchen equipment and fantastic hot tub. In lovely quiet setting with friendly owners.

This cottage is a gem with the owners providing a luxury cottage. We stayed here for a week and totally fell in love with the place. It is ideal for going out for the day for long walks or visiting some lovely places. I would give this cottage 10/10, we will be back.

Orchard cottage was a wonderful place to stay! A lovely interior and really well equipped and maintained too. We'd never tried a hot tub before, but that was great! There was a lovely Christmas tree and stove too. The welcome basket was really nice, thank you to the lovely (and helpful) Mike & Wendy! The location was also in lovely countryside, rolling hills and fresh air, hooray!
August 2016
Well what can we say about this beautiful cottage other than what our title suggest. A truly lovely retreat matched only by our wonderful hosts Mike and Wendy. Upon arrival my family and I were warmly greeted by our hosts and shown around the accommodation which is gorgeous, spacious and so tastefully presented. We also had an amazing welcome basket of food and drink which was not only a pleasant surprise but the sheer thought put into it was fantastic. The location of Orchard cottage is perfect and enable us to explore this lovely part of the country we had lovely days out to Bakewell, Matlock, Heights of Abraham and a day to Alton Towers water Park which was only a 10 minute drive. Other days we loved our accommodation and its facilities so much we had a couple of days lazing around Orchard Cottage. To summarize we have had the perfect family holiday in a perfect cottage with perfect hosts who really could not do enough for my family and I and I feel that when we left we didn't leave behind our hosts, we left behind new friends. We will 100% return next year, in fact, I'm counting down the weeks!

I've just recent stayed at the Orachard cottage for the last week with my husband and 19 year old son. This cottage has utterly fantastic facilitates and was in the perfect location a very short distance from all places of interest to visit (we are keen walkers). The cottage is extremely clean and has everything you need the welcome hamper was a nice suprise, the hot tub for us topped the whole experience off. Looking to return in the near future and would highly recommend this cottage as an amazing place to stay. Just to add the owners of the cottage are lovely people and were very helpful with good local knowledge.
August 2016
One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners gave it 110% everything you could want from a cottage rental bathrobes slippers shower gel shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms. Televisions in lounge and each bedroom. Th welcome pack was amazing never had one as good everything you could want including a bottle of Prosecco very well equipped in the kitchen. The owners couldn't do enough for you we will definitely be booking again

Stayed here with my wife, 2 kids (aged 13 & 11) and my Mother. We generally try to book a cottage somewhere in the UK for a week around the Easter school holidays and this was easily one of the best we have ever stayed in. The owners are exceptionally welcoming. The cottage sits very close to the owners property using the same driveway with parking easily for 2/3 cars). It has a separate utility room with a washing machine and dryer as well as an ample supply of wood and coal for the fire in the evening! The outside terrace with table and chairs and hot tub is secluded enough to give privacy. The hot tub was such a good experience that we used it every day and has now become a must on our list for next year! Layout of the cottage is good and it was very clean - with a selection of games, puzzles, books and DVDs. Our only disappointment was the lack of WIFI (the owner explained this was due to delayed repair works by BT) and Vodafone mobile reception was poor. However these things could not be avoided and did not stop us enjoying the cottage. We generally tend not to visit the same place twice as we like to visit different areas of the UK but we would definitely consider staying again. If you book this cottage you will definitely not be disappointed!!!

Myself and 3 other friends stayed at this lovely cottage for 3 nights whilst we visited Alton Towers resort (a short and traffic free journey from the cottage) and we were all thouroughly impressed with the establishment, the owners were welcoming and accustoming considering we arrived at the time of 11.30pm! The cottage itself was excellent, extremely clean and with more features than could be dreamed of including a quality kitchen with all utensils and appliances required, a lovely living space and bathrooms were top of the range. Of course the hot tub helped to put the icing on the cake! Considering we were only the second set of people to stay at the cottage i thought they had already got it spot on! Already planning to go back and stay there even just for the cottage itself, a pleasure.

This cottage is a home from home. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. It is really spacious, modern and clean. The setting is really pretty. It is close to many attractions. The hot tub was an appreciated added bonus. The welcome hamper was really lovely. Loved the coffee machine, the selection of DVD's, magazines available and the SMART TV's. It was great for our one year old and two year old. We put a stair gate between the kitchen and hall and they still had plenty of space to play in/get about (kitchen/lounge/sunroom). Fantastic holiday all round all thanks to such fantastic accommodation. Thanks to the owners! Highly recommend!

Quite simply put, this is THE best cottage we have ever stayed in. It is beautiful, even better than the photos, and the owners are fantastic. We booked for Christmas 2015 but due to an unexpected illness in the family we didn't actually get there until Boxing Day (4 days late) and to be honest we weren't sure whether to bother making the effort but thank goodness we did as we ended up having a wonderful time, albeit a much shorter holiday than expected! As soon as we arrived we were made really welcome by the owners, the stove was lit and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree had been put up in the living room - we immediately felt at home. The welcome basket was AMAZING - the best we have ever had. The cottage is a really good size and very luxurious with some wonderful personal touches - the hot tub is the icing on the cake. The area is lovely and there is so much to see and do - we can't wait to go back. If you want somewhere to stay with the WOW factor then this is the place - book it now you really won't be disappointed!

Very hard to fault this place. Excellent welcome basket, very well equipped from wifi to hot tub, short drive to walk, cycle or explore the local history. Owners extremely helpful. Well out in the country down a long driveway but 10 minutes from sainsbury wait rose and M & S if you need them. Downstairs single room would be easily wheelchair accessible if you needed it.
