Plenty of room for us all!

The owner of the cottage was very accommodating and advised us of all the activities we could do in the local area. The kids loved the quad-biking and cycling. The owner also advised us to shop online for groceries to be delivered to the cottage which was an excellent idea as when we arrived the shopping was in their bags waiting for us. The cottage itself was very spacious - there were 15 of us. This cottage is like a tardis, very deceiving from the outside. The grounds were lovely and the shops were very close by car (Morrisons, Asda, Wilkinsons, etc.). The best things I liked about this cottage was the facility for us all to dine together at the huge dining table, then stick everything in the dishwasher, the big leather sofas in the lounge, the wetroom on the ground floor and the hot tub. The least thing I liked about the cottage was the size of the barbeque - the cottage sleeps 15 people so to provide a barbeque that can only hold 6 small chicken drumsticks at a time is beyond me - we didn't bother to use it in the end and just used the ovens.

Fabulous Place For Chilling Out

This property was recommended to us by a colleague and told us that we would not be disappointed with the cottage. The owners were incredibly helpful in every way possibe. They gave us lots of advice of where to find good local restaurants and where to buy fresh local farm produce and take away delivery services. They helped us to light the log burner which was wonderful on a chilly autumn evening. The furnishing and fittings are exceptional and plenty of pot and pans in the kitchen. Mum and dad really loved the Hot Tub and it is maintained daily by the owners. Honestly cannot fault anything. We went out to Ilam and Chatsworth as well as taking a stroll over the stepping stones at Dovedale. The Manifold track is super for biking and for flat walkers. The younger members particularly enjoyed climbing to Thor's Cave. P.S. Thankyou for the complementary bottle of wine it was a good start to our lovely week away in the country.

The Perfect Getaway

Welcomed with wine and a tour, and of course instructions on how to use the hot tub (make sure you book this as part of your stay!)and we were all set. The accommodation was perfect, lots of space, bathrooms and a huge fridge, including a seperate wine fridge...for my hen do it couldn't have been better. We went out for a meal but to be honest we had all we needed in the barn, and the takeaway Chinese was excellent!|We only left to go to alton Towers, a perfect way to clear any hangovers! The hot tub was by far the highlight, we couldn't use it enough...if I had one least favourite bit it would be that the beds were a bit uncomfortable - but us girls are all looking forward to our hot tub reunion!!!
