Quirky Excellence. A Gem Of A Place.

A beautiful cottage in an idyll setting .We received a warm greeting from the owners Stuart & Mary who gave us some good tips on the best eating places locally. Mary also provided us with a welcome pack which included some of her homemade Bakewell Tarts, most agreeable . The cottage itself is very tastefully modernised without loosing it's authentic feel. We were very lucky with unseasonably good sunny weather so we were able to sit on the patio & enjoy the stunning view. It did get cool in the evening but the central heating was more than adequate to keep us warm & cosy. A place we will definitely return to.

Perfect stay in beautiful location

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had booked the perfect accommodation. We arrived 45 mins early but nothing was too much trouble. The inside was spotlessly clean and it was fully equipped including all the little extras such as milk, wine and Bakewell treats! We settled in well and the attention to details such as binoculars to watch the birds added to the whole experience. I was blown away that I had the opportunity to stay in such a unique cottage. The kitchen was fully equipped and it enabled us to stay in and make our own food and stay snuggled up watching a DVD! Wifi included! Perfect cottage and perfect hosts - Thank you x

Perfect relaxing break

My husband and I found our stay at The Old Chapel delightful and perfect for relaxing whilst visiting nearby places. The cottage had everything we needed making it feel like home from home. The owners, Mary and Stuart, are a very lovely couple, friendly but not intrusive. Home baked pies, flowers, and a bottle of wine in the fridge welcomed us when we arrived. In my opinion these are small details that makes one feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our week there and I was sorry to leave! The views from the cottage are amazing. I loved watching the birds feeding every morning from the living room window. I originate from Northern Spain and this part of England is very similar in so many ways, no wonder I felt at home! Mary has lots of useful information regarding walks and interesting places to visit. There are National Trust houses nearby with amazing walks. If the weather is cold and rubbish, light the fire in the lovely stove and curl up with a book!! honestly don't miss the opportunity to visit the chapel if you can, it is perfect for a couple.

An outstanding base for the Peak District

We spent a week in this cottage in December 2016 and will be returning! The cottage is well equipped. The welcome package is excellent with milk, wine and home made Bakewell tarts for us. The surroundings are stunning and we also found a pub that we could walk to! Would definitely recommend! We loved having the wood burner and the cottage is very cosy which was perfect for those winter days and nights. We loved being able to easily travel in and around the Peak District from the cottage and nothing of interest was much more than 30 minutes away. I'm sure that this cottage is as relaxing all year round, but we particularly enjoyed staying here during winter time.
