We thought the cottage was warm, comfortable and well equipped. It was excellent value for money and I would certainly recommend it.

The location was great - handy to everywhere in the Peak District, in a pleasant rural setting but only 5 minutes drive to Buxton. The facilities were excellent in an interesting barn conversion. We loved our stay.

It was a very good place for a base out of the way of town life, but not far away from town and not far from the peaks as we did a lot of walks. We will go back to that property again so overall we would give it ten out of ten, many thanks.

The Loft was ideally situated to explore the Peak District and we had a very quiet and relaxing break.

The Loft was very well situated for visiting and sightseeing all the places of interest in Derbyshire, as well as taking in some walking and trekking. We also particularly enjoyed the close proximity to Buxton, which has lots to offer, daytime or evening. This was the first time we have ever stayed in a cottage. It exceeded our expectation. The Loft cottage we would highly recomend to anyone.

The Loft was a fantastic property in a lovely peaceful location. There were good access routes to the area and the owners were very friendly people. Our first time in the Peak District but it won't be the last.

Great location, quiet but close enough to Buxton. Can highly recommend this accommodation, have paid a lot more for other accommodation not a patch on the 'Loft'. Will definitely return!

The location of the property was excellent for discovering the area, which was superb especially Bakewell. We loved The Loft. Most of the people we met in towns and markets were friendly and helpful. We normally go abroad, but with hideaways like this on our doorstep who needs it.

The accommodation was first class, clean and comfortable. The owners were helpful, friendly and considerate. We had a problem with the hot water heater in the bathroom at 10pm on the first night and the owner was there to sort it out immediately, that is what you call service.

I've passed through Derbyshire many times, I've stopped here once overnight decades ago. I've marvelled at the beauty of the place, the stone buildings the green, undulating, occasionally rugged landscape. And the space.....vast green space. And I've kept telling myself I'll stay for longer. It was important to me that we stayed somewhere fitting of my overall perception of the place. "The loft" is one of number of properties that have been converted on a part-retired farm at Cowdale Hall near Buxton. Location and access Is straightforward, I was told by the owner that GPS would get me right to the gate and it did. He'd also said that the place would be ready with the key in the door, early afternoon, it was. And in walking through the low door it was all we expected it to be. The property was clean, fully equipped and already warming with wall convector heaters. The kitchen was basic but with electric cooker, fridge, microwave and all the pots, pans, utensils you'd need along with a good sized breakfast bar. You're greeted by a huge leather velour sofa which faces a flat screen tv with DVD player built in. A shelf of DVD's to watch and books to read. There's a small double bedroom with wardrobes and dressing table and a small shower room with toilet. We met the owner whilst unloading the car, a friendly bloke who showed us around and told us of a local walk around the farm. We've stayed for three nights, dedicating one day, New Years Eve, to shaking off a few Christmas Kilos, hiking from nearby Edale part along the Pennine Way on a route covering Grinds Brook and Ringing Roger, it was windy, and rocky and stunningly beautiful. And today, we've spent the loft........ I thoroughly recommend it. :-)

The location and general access to and from the property via road was excellent and with ease onto the main roads. It is a short distance from Buxton which made it easy to get shopping or petrol. The property was excellent and the owners were respectful of my privacy, but were there if needed. This was one of the best holidays I've had in 13 years.
